"Mid-morning and still no new Althouse post. I'm beginning to feel isolated."

Said Sebastian at 8:52 a.m. in last night's café... which was just as I was finally getting around to working up a post — published, below, at 8:58.It wasn't just a matter of needing to get out to see the moon refuse to set... It was also the news itself. I was reading around in my usual manner and not finding anything suitable (not until that one thing you see below). There's a great deal about the coronavirus, but I'm not just doing news updates here, I don't repeat things I've already done, ...

Here’s how to use focus stacking to shoot landscapes with complete front-to-back sharpness

One of the biggest issues with landscape photography is ensuring that you have enough depth of field to cover the entire front-to-back distance of the scene you want to capture. With some lenses, sure, if your nearest subject is at least a certain distance away, and your aperture’s small enough, you can get pretty close. […] The post Here’s how to use focus stacking to shoot landscapes with complete front-to-back sharpness appeared first on DIY Photography.

"At 6:30 a.m. on Jan. 31, Hailey Moore and Dr. Kristopher Hansen stood in the dark at the Mesa Arch trailhead inside Canyonlands National Park near Moab, Utah."

"The half-mile to the arch was snow-covered and wound past prickly bushes, boulders, frozen puddles, cactuses and dead-but-still-standing trees. Ms. Moore, 40, and Dr. Hansen, 38, were eloping, with no guests.... Their only companions were Jess and Austin Drawhorn, a married team of photographers... The Drawhorns, who were dressed like backcountry hikers, wore headlamps and handed the bride and groom metal cleats to pull over their shoes...."From "An Unexpected Path Leads to a Fresh Start/An elo...

The Passion Of Trees In Pictures By Iranian Photographer Ali Shokri

To me, each tree, like a human-being, has a tale to tell. When a tree dies, a whole story is interrupted, a destiny is altered for the worse. I feel as if the trees, bundled at the back of trucks, are cursing us with their broken hands, wounded faces, and severed roots. Perhaps this is how we are led towards damnation, little by little stripped of our humanity, when man’s “abounding foliage... Source

Costa Rica Rural Landscapes

Sponsored Nothing makes you appreciate a small group tour more than when you are suddenly thrown onto a big charter coach and are surrounded by tons of people, tiny seats, and some person speaking in a crackling microphone about a billion dull facts that you could care less about.

With the distorted microphone noise droning on, I decided to spend my time looking out the window instead of trying to make se...
