Day 6 At Mt Perry. Sunrise with Beams of light coming from the clouds.

The sunset over the Apuan Alps in Verrucole (Tuscany). It was actually a very dull day, the sky was just a big gray wall of clouds (I'll post a photo of the view tomorrow) except for few, brief moments like this when the Sun was literally firing beams of light on the mountains through gaps in the clouds.

Looks better large........


Airport Mesa....It didnt take but a few minutes and everything changed so quick.


This phot has been cropped to thanks to my flickr friend DAVE.....that is what is so aweome about this site you have the pro's that show you the small things to make a photo into a piece of art....

The two beams can reportedly be seen by a 60-mile radius on a clear night, from Brooklyn to the Bronx, Queens to Staten Island, and Wall Street to Jersey City.


Formed from 88 powerful bulbs positioned into two squares that echo the fallen Twin Towers, the light memorial reaches four miles skyward. It shines from a roof near the trade center, traditionally from sunset to dawn, and has become a moving, quietly powerful element of the anniversaries since the attacks.


Last September 11, my husband and I spent several hours at the Brooklyn Bridge Park waiting for the beams to appear.

As we were leaving the premises I turned around to see the lights one more time. I looked up and saw the beams projecting their light straight up into the sky.


Thank you for your comments.

Another morning on Pakefield beach with sun beams breaking through the cloud.

One of those .....quick pull over the car moments as the mist drifted through a gap in the forest beside Snake Pass.

me up into the sunlight

On an autumn Saturday in Scotland and poor weather conditions there was a small window of opportunity to get out with the camera and so off I went to Duncryne Hill (AKA The Dumpling) at Gartocharn which has stunning views of Loch Lomond. However, I was minded by one of my old photography lecturers that when you are shooting landscapes, it is important to remember to turn round because what may be behind you may well be a better shot than that which is in front of you.

sun beams through mist in a forest

Beams of Light.........I can honestly say that this may have been once of the most incredible displays of light that I have seen. It's been a year since I captured this scene and I still remember the day like it were yesterday. Jave, Alan C. and myself couldn't believe the light that was unfolding in front of our eyes. I stood at the edge of Steptoe Butte in awe. I only was able to capture 3 images of this scene, the image you see here, this one and another image that was horrible! Believe me, you wouldn't want to see that train wreck of an image! But looking back, it was a wonderful experience, and an experience that I am thankful that I was able to capture with my camera, and one that I can share with you. Peace and Love.


It truly was a magical evening on the Lewis Tops a couple of weeks ago. This view looks down the Maruia River, in the general direction of Springs Junction.

An experimental shot that didn't work too well but at the same time didn't turn out too badly. Food for thought for my next Milky Way trip. About as close to a selfie as I'm comfortable with!

Sun beams in the Upper Antelope Canyon, Page Arizona. A fantastic location. If you want to see the beams be sure to be there about 12 am. They are only visible about two hours (depends on the time of the year). We were lucky and made this shot at about 1 pm, a few minutes later the rays were gone.

I have had such good luck with light beams lately!!!!


Kind of thought the little birds on the poles were cute too.


Here's an image I captured during my recent 3-day backpacking trip through Grand Gulch on the Cedar Mesa Plateau, Utah.

This is at a location known as "Perfect Kiva"...a 1,000+ year old Anasazi ruin. I arrived late morning and the sun was on a perfect angle to enter the kiva opening (I am in the kiva, underground).

Before you ask, yes the light beam is real -- this not PhotoShop trickery...this is a simple technique known as the Tyndall effect...remember as a kid in school when you clapped the chalkboard erasers together in front of the movie projector you could see the light...same idea except I tossed up sand from the floor of the Kiva.


No HDR...single frame. Goes to show just how much dynamic range the Canon 5D3 has! If you ride the edge of your histogram shadows you can indeed pull a dramatic amount of detail out of what appears to be pure black.

Taken at a cousin's wedding at the Westmoreland Country Club outside of Chicago, IL this past weekend.


The image stabilization on my lens is crucial for situations like this when I want to take three exposures but don't have a tripod. A steady hand helps too.

my thanks to all who visit my photostream.
