    The full snow Moon of Feb 23rd 2024.I've been planning for a composition like this for few days. After mapping locations using Google Earth Pro and Google maps, I finally decided to go with full moon rising over the Buckhead skyline.Setup the camera, layed on the ground and just enjoyed watching the moon slowly rise over the skyline. It was beautiful. .Shot on Sony A7RV Sigma 150-600mm, with @peakdesign aluminum tripod.

    Title or Location: South Carolina Botanical Garden near Clemson University on 2/7/2024
    Was bored and just pointed the car north on I-75 looking for something to photograph. The Botanical Garden has always been a favorite for birds, because they have several feeders in their pollination garden. So I landed there and just waited. This bird was not close, like the others. But I was using a 200-600 mm lens that I'd rented, so distance actually made it better for composition.

    Title or Location: Atlanta
    Was trying to capture a slightly different view of our skyline. Using the Mavic 3 Pro drone?s 3x zoom, I was able to get the entire skyline, from downtown, all the way to midtown. The compression created by the zoom, gives an appearance that there is hardly any distance between the Bank of America Plaza and Midtown.

    This photo is from early in my photography journey. I attended one of my first Seattle-based photography meet-ups and after the meet and greets, we split into small groups to find some compositions. I had been playing around with long exposures and light trails and the bright lights from the Great Wheel caught my eye. I spent a good amount of time that evening making new relationships and capturing this image.
