Thanks so much! I have sometimes thought that image would work well as wrapping or tissue paper. :)

That is some beautiful photography. Thanks for the mention, I love how this art inspires others to not just enjoy but get out there and grab the light. Care to share any camera details?

Gorgeous all! I love peonies, and I’m amazed by the color of the Fiery Ranunculus.

I have enjoyed many of your pictures———I seem to remember you featured some really spectacular ones with flames a while back.

I don’t use or have any knowledge of fancy cameras, attachments, lenses or what-have-you. I am really quite ignorant of all the special equipment and techniques that serious photographers master. I use a Canon Power Shot SD960 IS with 12.1 mega pixels. That camera automatically focuses and (I think) handles all the choices of shutter speed or whatever. I just always turn off the flash, and use the highest resolution setting that I can. I avoid using the zoom because my hands are not steady enough——though I sometimes I break down and use it to try to capture the elusive pileated woodpecker that visits our yard. Those pictures always suck… :D

Most of my pictures are pretty bad. My “skill”, I think, is that I occasionally recognize that one of my pictures does not suck. That, and I think I have a knack for cropping. :)

I have also learned that I should only take pictures on days when the lighting is exceptional———I live someplace with a lot of overcast days. :(

Every now and then I want to photograph something I see in the night sky. I have only gotten good results once. Do you have any particular advice to offer? Your expertise with capturing flames in a dark space makes me think you might. Then again, I probably don’t have the equipment it takes, but who knows.

I love peonies too. I look forward to them all year and then in a matter of days they are gone! That was a huge motivation for me to take pictures of them and other fleeting delights in the garden.

If you really love peonies you might want to check out Klehm’s offerings. They have all sorts of different varieties you might not find anywhere else. They carry traditional favorites and also cultivars they have bred themselves.

And yeah, that was one amazing ranunculus. The central petals were a greenish lemon yellow and then on one side there was a clump of dark red-orange ones contrasting with the golden-orange ones. I had never seen anything like it and I’m glad the picture came out. (I took several just in case.)

re: #6 KerFuFFler

Thanks, yeah I do love the silk dancer aspect of fires in motion. Those were really fast exposures, sometimes as fast as 1/8oooth of a second.

Your skill is in your eye for patterns, detail and composition. Without that the best cameras don’t help much. Night shots take longer exposure times. Unless it’s a bright moon or city lights from a lookout point. Like my fire shots the subject brings the light.

Stars and night clouds have very little light. Your camera may well do that on automatic, just figure out a way to keep it steady for the five to maybe sixty seconds a long exposure might take. Inexpensive tripod or even sand bags will do. If it has a manual “bulb” setting that means it will expose as long as you hold the button. The less light, the more demanding it is on the camera. Sensor ISO etc. But hey the fact that digital cost nothing to snap is uninhibiting. You have the “go for it” part. I’d say keep at it. I have had my days where I took many exposures and after review had none, or one or two worthy of sharing. Like fishermen, I have my stories about the one that got away. We all get that.

Maybe that was someone else’s photography……
People change their screen names so often I lose track of who is who. I looked for some of those pictures but could not find them. (Update——-Oh good, those were your pictures!)

I just checked out some of your landscape pics.
JUST WOW!
