After five days of Comic-Con—189, 190, 191, 192, 193—it’s time for something serene. Tom Gill carves out a unique niche, specializing in landscape photography in and around Lake Michigan. He captured today’s selection on June […]
If dragonflies, damselflies, and butterflies are you thing—as they are mine, being a bug lover— Paul Ritchie gives glorious, intimate views of them. The Day goes to self-titled “Brilliant Emerald (Somatochlora Metallica)”, which he shot […]
Travel photographer James Wheeler takes the Day with an evocative, wish-you-were-there view captured on May 17, 2015, using Nikon D600 and 17-35mm f/4 lens. Vitals: f/11, ISO 100, .5 sec, 17mm. I picked the pic mainly for composition and color; the red canoe to the left set against the lake looker to the right makes the shot—without even considering the majestic mountains framing the foreground.
James describes self-titled “Birkenhead Lake View”, visited over the “Victoria Day long weekend” (ended May 18 in 2015 and on the 23rd in 2016). “It is a bit far from Vancouver but is an amazing place to go camping for a long weekend. We had relatively good weather for May and will definitely go back next year”.
Memorial Day arrives here in the United States—and a little earlier in May than is typical. What better way to celebrate than with self-titled “Flower-Sunrise”, which Tony Heyward captured on April 19, 2013, using the […]
Like Day 121, our selection demonstrates that iPhone 6 can be, in competent hands, a fantastic camera. Pablo Fernández captured self-titled “Nature Sunset” on April 26, 2015, in St. Albans City and District, United Kingdom. Vitals: f/2.2, ISO […]
Now there’s something you don’t see everyday, eh? UK-native Adam Singer captured delightful self-titled “Bison Sctatching” on April 26, 2015, while traipsing across the U.S. northwest, using the Nikon D600 and 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6 lens. Vitals: f/5.6, ISO 220, […]
The best nature photography causes you to say something spontaneous. Maybe it’s just “wow”, but something. “Spectacular” is my reaction to the photostream of Bryce Bradford. There are so many great pics to pick from, any could […]
Italian Riccardo Palazzani is a Star Trek fan, not that you would ever guess from his personal website. His photostream is more down to earth, and today’s selection is typical. He prefers nature to people, […]
The Skagit Tulip Festival ends in two days. If you live in Washington State, there is still time—and perhaps today’s selection will move you along. Howard Ignatius shot self-titled “Partly Cloudy” on April 4, 2015, using Nikon D800 […]
For the second day we have a photographer with similar name—beginning with K and now C. I mean no teasing or offense calling out the interesting: Cat Burton shooting self-titled “Run Duckling, Run!” She captured […]
Neko is primarily an indoor cat, but we do take him out for brief jaunts in the apartment complex courtyard. While he’s not trim, our bulky boy can still climb when motivated. Here he finds […]
When choosing photos for this series, I weigh many considerations, such as: Image quality and appeal, composition, and story behind the image or the one about the shooter. Today’s selection is soft and doesn’t represent the high IQ typical of Matt MacGillivray. But it’s a great shot superbly composed (or cropped) that is interesting. Bird and bricks? WTH?
Matthew works for the Cornell Lab of Ornithology as a web application system architect. But birds are a passion, as his photography shows. He shot self-titled “Snowy” on Jan. 4, 2009, using Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi and Canon 100-400 f4.5-5.6 lens. Vitals: f/7.1, ISO 200, 1/400 sec, 400mm.
