    Fantastic locations, terrific group of people and Natasha was brilliant.
    Was fantastic. New to the territory and photography. Great way to learn and see the territory. Going to next month's event and hopefully more. Can't wait. Tash was great.
    Great workshop, very informative, relaxed environment, great people. Tash our field host was amazing and very helpful dispersing her time evenly between all of us.

    Great group and great mentoring
    This was a great spot, with a friendly group and great tip from Natasha, who walked me through some camera settings on my camera that I had forgotten about, and gave me some great tips for storing my gear in a humid climate. I highly recommend this group worship!
    The afternoon was lovely, pretty informal but that was part of the charm. I look forward to more

    Title or Location: Palmerston NT
    It was our first night returning back to Darwin and I was sitting on the balcony of the apartment we were staying, in the distance was a storm with lighting in it putting on a beautiful show. I mainly shoot landscape and have never had the opportunity to photograph lighting before so I gave it a crack and was lucky enough to capture this photo.

    Sunday afternoons done right, spent with fellow photographers. Hanging out, encouraging each other and sharing knowledge.This was my first landscape shoot which was certainly rushed as a typical wet season storm hit literally 40 minutes from set up.Location Nightcliff foreshore 3pm Canon EOS R5 24mm f/8 1/2000 sec ISO250 no filter

    Title or Location: Fogg Dam, Darwin
    This is my favourite place to go early morning when I can?t sleep. This was taken just after sunrise when there was still a little fog around and still no wind giving beautiful reflections. Has been edited a little in photoshop to enhance the reflections and bringing out the natural colours. Walking along the tracks at the back of the dam by myself can be a little scary. I?m always looking around for crocs that could be lurking. &129763

    Title or Location: Wagait Beach, NT, Australia 0822
    This is a photo of sunset at Wagait Beach captured from the sky. I was walking along a beach, and everything was painted warm orange by the setting sun. It was great to be part of this gorgeous landscape, even if just for a fleeting moment.

    Darwin Photography Group
    Title or Location: Mamukala Wetlands, Kakadu National Park
    I arrived at Mamukala Wetlands for sunrise in hopes of catching some beautiful birds on camera. Didn't really see much at first but then I spotted this Masked Finch in the middle of gathering some long grass for nest building. I really love the way the sunlight catches the bird and the branch. Image shot with a Sony A7iii using a 150-600 Tamron lens, ISO 250, f/6.3, 1/1250.

    Title or Location: American Kestrel at the Canadian Raptor Conservancy
    First off, I have to say that I am not a "Birder". But I love challenging my photographic skills and abilities. The American Kestrel is not a big bird, and it is fast. So even when you know its takeoff is imminent, it is still hard to get a nice clear photo of the bird. This particular image was shot with a Canon R6 camera, with the RF100-500mm f/4.5-7.1 L IS USM lens at 1/5000 sec, f/7.1 and ISO 4000. I used the animal eye-tracking feature of this mirrorless full frame camera, and was very plea

    Title or Location: Horseshow Bend in Page, AZ
    I had shot the sunrise at Horseshoe Bend the same morning and was hoping for a blazing sunset at this location after talking to the other photographers present at sunrise. Even with some clouds, we were not so fortunate and when the sunlight was casting on the water I switched to black and white mentality and was able to capture this photo. You can just see the setting sun in the upper right corner for the photo.

    Title or Location: Nene Valley Railway - Wansford
    I was on a leisurely family walk going towards Nene Valley Railway in Wansford when serendipity struck, and I found myself in the perfect spot to capture a captivating moment. The sight of a steam train preparing to depart from the station sparked a rush of excitement and nostalgia. The timeless allure of steam trains and the bustling atmosphere of the railway added a touch of history and charm to my photography experience.

    Title or Location: Halstead Kansas, outside my house
    It was a cloudy day and my cat was up in the tree. he had always had very deep blue, but with all the defused light from the clouds and the contrast from the tree bark, It sent me running for my camera.I shot it on a Nikon D5600, with a 70 - 200mm lens, on January 25, 2024.I shot it raw while in manual mode, the aperture was 4.1, the iso 100, and the shutter speed was 1 over 700.

    Swansea Photography Group
    Title or Location: Three Cliffs Bay, The Gower, Swansea
    This one took a bit of planning to catch the Milky Way in the place I wanted, the Weather, Moon, and Milky Way core all had to be right and as you might guess it took a few seasons for it to come together, every time it was a walk in the dark over the sand dunes from Pennard to get to the right spot on the cliff edge, I'm a little picky when it comes to star trails and although there are certain formulas for shutter speed to "visibly" limit star trails I'd rather have none, so I dragged my Star
