    The instructor was great, she taught me exactly what I needed to know. On the other hand it was a bit hard to focus with the cold wind and rain. When I signed up, I did not know it was going to be an outside learning experience, I was picturing a classroom!

    10-28-23. One of my best friends had experience one of the most traumatic experiences anyone could ever. We were walking around just trying to keep her mind at ease and I just remember turning around and the scene behind me just looked so surreal and calming so I took a picture.

    I was out early one morning after dropping my friend and her partner off at the hospital for some tests and thought I would take a drive down by the water because the trees were still really covered with snow and it was so beautiful. I decided to take a drive down my favorite way, which is Butterworth, and then swung back around on Indian Mounds Drive, which is where I ultimately stopped and took this photo.

    Something as simple as a trolley can be so captivating. in a place so modern and surrounded by so much technology, we can momentarily be brought back in time with just a photograph. I set out this night to check out the World of Winter festival, and just before I got home I noticed this trolley and snapped this photo. The saying always goes, save the best for last.

    I woke up to a foggy morning a few weeks ago and didn?t want to waste the moody vibe. I went out and had a feeling a cemetery would give me the look I wanted. The moisture from the fog made the statue look just like it was crying.

    I photographed a wedding rehearsal back in Feb of 2023, I took a picture of the altar then. A week ago I was coming home from a family portrait session, and saw the church lit up in the night sky. I knew when I too the exterior picture exactly what I wanted to do. It took a bit of adjusting and multipole layers but it works.

    Title or Location: My back garden in Hemel Hempstead
    As a deep space photographer, I like to take photos of outer space targets that our eyes cannot see. These photos require a lot of patience and a lot of clear nights reason why my telescopes are working almost every night when it isn't cloudy. Astrophotography is very different from all the other types of photography, a single photo sometimes requires tens of hours under the clear night sky but the result is very satisfying.In this photo, I would like to present to you the California Nebula
