I wanted something happy, wonderful and beautiful all at the same time and since ATS has so many lovely artists, I thought everyone could display something they did that they are proud of.

Here is a picture I took the other day while taking a walk in the mountains. The landscape up here is absolutely gorgeous - and some pictures are totally cool like this old house:



And this is in black and white - same shot (I need to work on doing better black and whites I believe):



Here is one of a fallen log on the forest floor:



And here is my moth caterpillar:



And here is some more landscape



I love doing the old style 35mm film - and those pictures I do sell lately. But I wanted to share with you some digital shots that are pretty, and I hope everyone else shares their own also!

My pursuit is capturing images where no one else can.

Male Pileated Woodpecker (Dryocopus pileatus), the day of fledging, 30Ft up in the cavity of a trembling aspen. July 2014.

Great Pics. Feels like home to me. Based on the foliage and geology, I'd say these were taken in the Catskills -- or perhaps the Alleghenies. Or possibly eastern Dutchess county NY. In any case, it's the land I know and love -- thanks!

I took these at the famously haunted Eastern State Penitentiary this past spring. It was a dreary cold rainy spring day. Dark and damp ... and the place is haunted.

I like the dreary lighting in this one.
It's rather balanced as well.

Death Row -


Haunted barber chair for the inmates -


Al Capones cell -


Prison wall -

My favourite pic of the year (so far).

Yellow warblers (Dendroica petechia), 22 June 2014, in a tea cup sized nest made of grass and lined with spider silk.

Out of this picture at a WWII re-enactment in kent:

I managed to get this cleaner one:

Thunder bug on a shovel:

Swans taking off:

A black swan escaped from a park nearby:

Some landscapes of the island I live on:


Oh, and a falconer catching an eagle just because.

I may cough up some more soon. Nice thread

Beautiful pics everyone!
Here are some of my photos:

Found this while hiking around my Godparents' property


Hobbit house I came across while walking through the park


Perfect spot to watch the Lake Erie sunset


To the right of the perfect water watching chairs above


Storm front line. It looked like waves rolling in in the sky


Finally, just a random, fun picture. I got glow jewelry for my kids, nieces, and nephews and had them pose in the dark yard

Both of your pics are awesome. I have to keep my feet on the ground, I could never get those shots. My hats off to you, with total respect.

Beautiful photography!

That is absolutely beautiful photography. Landscapes are my favorite always - and you live in a beautiful area and have an excellent eye!

Just curious what kind of camera do you use?

The last picture is reminiscent of a style of photography I have been playing around with, and that is light painting. Have you ever heard of it? It's different and really really neat...

This one is called Kundalini Bonfire and the photographer is Dennis Calvert (not my work)



I have been playing around a bit with this style, just because it's neat. I have yet to develop a roll of film to see how good it's going to turn out. I can't wait to see! I have to do this with my 35mm camera, and it's a totally new style for me!

Beautiful photography!


Thanks, but my feet were on the ground too. I designed a camera specifically for getting images inside of high tree cavities.

Here is one more of a North American Porcupine (Erethizon dorsatum) in the cavity of a deadfall.

That is a gorgeous shot and very cool style! I hope you share your attempts because now I'm excited to your take on it


As for me, I am an artist, not a photographer. I have an artist's eye for framing a shot, but all my pics are taken with either my Galaxy S5 or, when I don't have my phone on me, hubby's Iphone 5. Then I use Corel PSP to remove the digital noise. Sometimes I'll adjust the shadows and highlights if I love the composition, but the lighting was wrong. I also love converting to black and white.

Here's one I took last month when I was visiting hubby in Iowa. (He installs the cables inside the wind turbines that makes them run so he's gone a lot
). This is one that I love in color and in B&W.

Here's one I took a while back. It's a heart-shaped....bug?

That is still totally awesome! Wildlife is some of the most difficult shots to get - and you are getting them time and again, not just getting them, but getting some nice close-ups with awesome surrounds! I LOVE the porcupine.

I must agree you are definitely an artist - although this is a quality every photographer must have if they are going to be any good!

I have never used Corel. I have heard good things about it though. I'm still learning everything concerning this digital age, trying to get more into the different digital possibilities. I've learned more about photoshop and cleaning up pictures nicely using that - although I don't yet know everything about the various uses yet!

But the tried and true is still excellent - and little competes with it if you don't have tons of money! Which is in the category I'm in... lol. I have seen some excellent work with the new digital 35mm cameras, and I would love to have one, but the cost is prohibitive for me so I'm sticking with the old style 35mm for now...

I like the control of the shutter duration and focal distance ect. that the 35mm offers personally.

That's pretty cool! I wonder what kind of bug that is? Interesting! Nice photo!
