Sknight....I love this thread. I am a true, hard core wannabe, and I've wondered why we don't see more of this on this forum. Your work is fantastic, as are all the shots I've seen posted so far.

I say, keep 'em coming! I'll post a couple of my favorites when I can, but am at work right now shhhhhh

Ron,
Both of those were taken in the Nevada Valley Of Fire State Park.

From the web site:
"Valley of Fire State Park is located only six miles from Lake Mead and 55 miles northeast of Las Vegas via Interstate 15 and on exit 75."

A truly great ride. Going in from Las Vegas on I-15, exit 75, you drive through the park and can come out on the Lake Mead side. Then it's a short drive to Hoover Dam. Nice day trip when staying in Vegas.

Most of my work over the years has been for publication. I only recently have been interested in shooting for the fun of it...

I learned on 4x5, then spent years shooting with 2-1/4 film before moving to early Nikons. These days I shoot with a consumer digital Nikon camera and a couple of old digitals. If I have a style its to shoot tight, doing my cropping in the viewfinder. I generally don't use a telephoto to get close, I move myself and camera to the subject.

Although much of my contract work was with lighting, I prefer available light (used on the shots that follow).

I still see some of my stock shots in publications, but now I "focus" on shooting stuff for myself like the shots that follow:













And then sometimes I violate my up close rule just to capture the image as an abstract design.

Great shots everyone. I have an Australian cattle dog that looks very similar to the bottom pic.

Here's the lightning pic, straightened and cleaned up a bit. Oh, and bigger too!

Have you seen PHOTO ART?

I know it is manipulations by computer of photos, but some are really, really interesting.

I got tired a few years ago of hauling around a SLR with multiple lenses and switched to a simpler point and shoot camera. Currently, I'm using a Canon G10 and am very happy with the results I get. Here's as shot I took last week near our home here in Cowichan Bay on Vancouver Island, B.C.

I see what you me now by straightning and cropped, puts the picture in better perspective.

Just a guess; it looks like you were looking south across Tampa Bay towards Gandy bridge?

I have learned so much from Ken Rockwell. His website is a gold mine of info.

I like his philosophy on photography.

It's not the camera but the photographer's eye for composition and lighting.

You are correct sir, I think. I was on the frontage road of the Hwy 60 causeway about halfway across the bay, facing south. Not sure if that's Gandy bridge or not but you're probably right.

I take it you've been there a time or two?
