I took this picture this morning... the light was bright and the sun just hit where this little faerie is sitting on a bed of Scotch Moss. BTW...this miniature has been in the same area outside for over 6 years and has not moved a millimeter since 3 years ago when I had to do some surgery on the plant...a tree root was sending up shoots through the moss, so you can imagine the trauma.

Anyways, I love that tiny figure so firmly part of it's environment...

This guy is totally into it...check out the laser-triggered camera he built for taking pics of insects in flight. I think he is in Holland somewhere...

Everyone's outdoor shots are lookin' beautiful !!!

Your control over lighting and exposure just continues to improve...Some excellent shots my friend! Your innate ability to frame a photo really shines through in your recent work...The grasshoper shots are a little overexposed, but that was a tough shot to pull off considering he was directly on the light source, so I don't think that really matters


BlackGuardXIII:
Holy smokes man - You're a hiking machine! I think you're being a little modest though, because those are some incredible shots! It's not just beautiful scenery and a snapshot - You clearly know how to balance the frame and draw the eye into your subject...Are these from a film camera?

LoganCale:
Love the detail on that ant!! I've tried "ant photography"....And I've failed! I just can't get close enough - Is 135mm too short?? I'm guessing you had a serious macro lens out for this shot....Great work, as usual!


I've been busy post-processing these past few weeks....It's such a pain to load...save...load....save....

I try to let CS2 do most of dirty work with automated actions/scripts....But even then! Trying to get it all done after my day job is what's killing me - But I can't make ends meet without that horrid 9-5...

And, the glutton for punishment that I am....I go out and do what I really love in my spare time - Take more photos - More work!!


But I truly love it...Enough so to even create a website:

www.rhowellphotography.com...

Bookmark it!! :-D

It's got maybe 1/10000 of what I have on my hard drive, so it'll be updated rather frequently...

Check out my 30 day self-portrait gallery - Who knows....I may just go past 30 days

Actually, it was just my standard Canon 28 - 90 lens, at maximum zoom, manually focused to the shortest distance possible, then cropped in after that to get it closer yet. So not real macro photography just yet. I'm hoping to get a macro lens at some point soon, though. Any recommendations?

Thanks Enron...but without the "digital darkroom" I'm afraid I would be a threat to myself and others...
. Hope you guys are drying out down your way.

Trying to learn some different effects with the software; some works, some doesn't...

I am only modest because I know nearly nothing about photography. I used two cameras, both of them inexpensive, basic models. They had power zoom lenses fixed onto them that covered 38 to 105 mm relative to 35 mm. I hiked the west coast trail 4 times, and usually shot 6 rolls of 200 ASA 24 picture film each time. I ran out of film the first year. If I framed my shots well, it was only because that looked good to me. It was my goal to share what I saw with whoever saw the pictures. Of course, they don't come close to the view I tried to catch. I did take a two night beginners photography class later, and learned that I knew less than I thought. Thanks for your compliments, and if you really like any of them in particular, let me know and I'll send you a better quality copy.
I also am very impressed by the pictures that are posted here, many of which are stunning.
Someday, when I have the time, I will learn more about photography, and try to share the sights I see on my hikes, etc.

More from Peru:

Peruvian Shore:



A heavy, low fog is present every morning tp provide some moisture and cool temperatures, but this region gets less than 2" of actual rainfall yearly.



It has been a race between Archeologists and Locals regarding the immense treasure of gold and other artifacts interred with these rulers as burial goods. The Locals "mine" these burial sites, which accounts for the many holes...it's like swiss cheese...

Here is a link to the new museum at Sipan, which shows some of what has been preserved:

Parrhesia, your last pic on 21-08-06 "Fruit" north of Ontario, looks like American Ginseng, the red berries are in season now.

I just heard a show on it a couple days ago. You can eat the berries and spit out the pit in the same location to keep the species alive.

(not my pic, I copped it from google images)
