Moon Reflection - Bright as Day

This moon reflection was taken on a partly cloudy night. The small pond shows the moon and clouds towards the south. (on nights like this, it is impossible to see the southern Milky Way). Taken around 11PM with a Canon 550D with a Tonika Wide Angle Lens.

Antique Antique Store

Taken in an old antique shop in a old mining town in Utah. Although not currently open for business, the owner allowed me inside for a few pictures. I appreciate the antiques themselves, the paint chips on the ceiling, and the portions of the roof that droop down. Canon 550D, High Dynamic Range processing with nice colors as a result. Thanks for stopping by.

Yellow Lily

I used the High Dynamic Range technique for this image. (One under-exposed, one over-exposed, and one normally exposed). Taken with a Canon 550D, Tonika 11-16mm lens at 16mm, as close as I could get and still focus. This has some potential.

World War II Vintage Hanger - Wendover Air Base, NV

This picture is of one of the hangers, built during World War II, at the old Wendover Air Base in Wendover, Nevada. There is a lot of history at this base, since the "Enola Gay" was prepared for it's atomic bomb drop over Japan a few hangers down.  Taken with a Canon 550D, Tonika 11-16mm lens at16mm, ISO 100, f-stop of 4.0, 30 second exposure. Taken around 2230 hours (Utah time).  The moon is blown out, but I wanted to capture as much of the building color as I could.
