One Lonely Summer Evening by by_shan

Milky Way over Shenandoah (re-edit) by by_shan

This is a 2×6 Pano stitch, I posted the original version 3 months ago here; at the time I wasn’t 100% happy with the edit as there was visible vignette along the stiching border from the 14mm wide angle. Finally got some time to re-edit it.. Changes are subtle but I am happy with the end results. Thanks for viewing, hope you enjoy. Please press “M” to see the image in better quality.

Harpers Ferry by by_shan

I am still getting use to this new layout at the moment, leave me a comment or two so I can get back to you, your works are great inspirations to me!

Historically, Harpers Ferry is best known for John Brown’s raid on the Armory in 1859 and its role in the American Civil War. The charming little town is situated at the confluence of the Potomac and Shenandoah rivers where the U.S. states of Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia meet. On my feet is the state of Maryland overlooking Harpers Ferry in West VA; across from Harpers Ferry on the top is the state of VA; Shenandoah river is on the top and Potomac river is on the bottom. Hope you enjoy !..

More often than not, their most active feeding time doesn’t equal to great lighting condition 🙂 I took this one when the Sun was just about to set; with a slow shutter, the wings were quite blurred, figured to try something new here and spice it up a little; my only hope is that this is not an epic fail.. 🙂 Hope you enjoy….

This is a juvenile blue jay, found him/her in my yard posing and begging me to take a shot so I snapped a few. Missed a tad of the tail but I am letting that one slide as I like the pose enough 🙂

I shall drink this… by by_shan

Feel like a “one trick pony” for keep posting these hummers 🙂 They are my favorite birds, so here is one more. Please press “M” to see the image in better quality, hope you enjoy….

This is a female ruby throated hummingbird in my yard, cloudy day creates great soft light on the subject, downside is that I had to lower the shutter and open the lens a little bit hence the shallow DoF.
