  • Zach Beane PRO 3y

    Thanks. I was driving by the park on my way to the lighthouse, but when I saw the light, hazy sunset shining through the trees, I turned around and started shooting. Beautiful evening.

    Beautiful! I've tried to add those floating things in manually into some of my shots and I can never get it to look real.
  • Zach Beane PRO 3y

    |nyquist| Those floating things are swarms of itty bitty bugs. :) Kind of gross to walk through but they look pretty nice when backlit!
  • John Dana PRO 3y

    This really is an amazing shot; the bugs almost give the illusion of looking through a window into another world.

    John Dana Thanks!

    Now that is a cool shot. I would've stopped and gone back to shoot it as well.
