    My wife and I were walking from the carpark to the hide on Wallasea Island there had been a little down pour, the rain stopped and the sun came out and caught some Reed Buntings flitting about amongst some tall grass. I was lucky as the sun caught the Reed Bunting for this shot using a Fuji X-T5 mirrorless camera with a 100-400 xf lense and 1.4 extender at 560mm.

    Mesa Arch is about a 25 minute walk from the parking lot in Canyonland National Park. At night, it's the darkest sky I've ever seen. This photo represents 20 stacked images of the Milky Way combined together in Starry Landscape Stacker. The result required the scene to be slightly brightened in post to bring out the foreground.

    While visiting Cannon Beach, Oregon for Spring Break this year, we were treated to beautiful blue skies, warm weather, stars AND airglow at night! I was absolutely giddy about seeing those stars! Now I hope you all know how extremely rare this combination is on the pacific coast in spring. It's normally overcast and raining and definitely no stars to be seen. Thank you universe for allowing your magic to flow this evening. I truly appreciate you and your powers ??
