Hello Everybody!

I recently "stumbed" upon this beautiful picture, and really wanted to share it. I love beautiful natural photography, and know a lot of my fellow ATS'ers do as well. So I thought the Fragile Earth forum might be a great place for us to have a thread to share our favorites.

Here is my first contribution.

As a professional photographer, I have dozens and dozens of these. I'll post one that I really liked that I got on a vacation of mine.



I'll add one to fit the screen, but wanted to keep the bigger one to show some detail.



It's one of my favorites that I have done. That is what attracts me to photography is the ability to capture the beauty of nature.

Let me know what you think.

If people would like to see more I have no problem adding a few.

I swear to you, this lake is actually this color, I do use photoshop to sharpen and sometimes enhance colors, but this was done with a 4 stop ND filters for a really saturated look.

This lake is actually this beautiful.

I'm only Semi-Pro unlike Pred. But don't tell that to my hurting wallet that paid for all the things you need to make these photos...


Here are some nice ones that might be good for desktops backgrounds:










But a link to my webpage where you can buy my art and photo's is in my signature at the bottom of all my posts (with permission).

You do not have to sell your photos to be a pro, you just have to make the majority of your living from photography.

Thanks , ive been having real problems getting good long exposure shots like yours. One of the main reasons i bought a canon 550d was to have a go at these kind of pics. Most of the time they are ending up over exposed and ive been basically using the same settings as you. The only difference is im not using a filter of any kind.

Yeah, filters are pretty important, they allow for longer shutter speeds when it is daylight. I have a couple, but my favorite to shoot with is my variable one. It goes from 2 stops to eight stops blocking out almost all light allowing up to a 20 sexing exposure in daytime.

They are a little more expensive at about $400 but well worth it. If the money isn't there the 0.6 is useful as well as the 2. It will not allow a long exposure like 5 seconds while shooting into the sun but it will provide nice effects.


Just remember to take a lot of pictures and to experiment a lot. I have a bunch of experimental photos that are a blast, I just posted one of my daughter levitating in another thread.

ETA: this one...

Wow! Amazing nature pics so far. I am so inspired!

Here is one that is not as stunning as some I've already seen, but sure is beautiful and different.

Hello all. This is one that I took last August just before dawn. The location is Camp Perry on Lake Erie.

Gorgeous pictures, all very desktop background worthy. My favorite is the purple sky one. Thank you so much for sharing!

Here are some pics I took recently. All with my blackberry and compressed here for size, so not the best quality, but still nice pics in my opinion.


Really like this one. Unfortunately the photo doesn't do it justice.


Early last week Saturday Morning, after some snow.

The following 3 were all taken early yesterday morning..... place looked amazing!
