A winter storm is hitting Queenstown, New Zealand.
This photo was taken the night before the storm hit the shore of Lake Wakatipu. The winds were already that strong that the splashing water was pushed immediately into my direction and I got wet many times. But it helped to get some nice shots, too.
Adobe Lightroom 5.6.
Photo Settings: 24mm, f/4, ISO 800.

The rapids above Triple Falls in Cascade Locks, Oregon. Taken in late October along the Oneonta Gorge.
As this was taken just before the "rainy" season began, I was able to set up my tripod in the creek without much trouble.

I captured this a while back, but never submitted it because it is best viewed in a panoramic format, not 16x10. I finally decided to submit a cropped copy. It was created with three images. When I shot it I didn't really see the eye. But when I stitched the panorama it jumped out of the screen at me!

Working with astronomical image processors at the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, Md., renowned astrophotographer Robert Gendler has taken science data from the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) archive and combined it with his own ground-based observations to assemble a photo illustration of the magnificent spiral galaxy M106.
Gendler retrieved archival Hubble images of M106 to assemble a mosaic of the center of the galaxy. He then used his own and fellow astrophotographer Jay GaBany's observations of M106 to combine with the Hubble data in areas where there was less coverage, and finally, to fill in the holes and gaps where no Hubble data existed.
The center of the galaxy is composed almost entirely of HST data taken by the Advanced Camera for Surveys, Wide Field Camera 3, and Wide Field Planetary Camera 2 detectors. The outer spiral arms are predominantly HST data colorized with ground-based data taken by Gendler's and GaBany's 12.5-inch and 20-inch telescopes, located at very dark remote sites in New Mexico. The image also reveals the optical component of the "anomalous arms" of M106, seen here as red, glowing hydrogen emission.

Taken at the Natural Arch (Bridge) in Springbrook National Park, Queensland, Australia. A popular destination for many years it has changed since I've last been there (many years ago) with the addition of a tree that has fallen through the cave roof and, unfortunately, a viewing platform which restricts photo options. Nonetheless I'm pleased with how this came out but I feel it is most suited to a wider aspect crop.

Just an hour North of Las Vegas, the Valley of Fire State Park is an easy drive to a surreal decor to bring you back down to nature away from the sad casino life. Here you are reminded where we all come from, and that there are simple pleasures to be experienced without spending money.

On Wednesday I spent 14 hours and drove around 700 miles chasing storms through Kansas and Oklahoma. The "cap" prevented many of the storms from producing much, but we ended the night with a breathtaking sunset that lasted over an hour! What a sight! This is a photo I took near Enid, Oklahoma while we were enjoying the show.
