I saw one of our photography threads got bumped up to the top this morning, so maybe it’s time to start a new one.

I took some shots of an orchid plant someone gave my wife, and turned it into one of my original-music-and-photo videos.

Here’s the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K-x6ODnaD-Y

Lacks your clarity, Charlie. But this is one of my favorites that I took with a cell phone camera. Jellyfish behind glass at the Shedds Aquarium in Chicago.

I concur, the clarity is awesome. I like the cheap digital gadgets and find imagery delightful. But I do envy the detail you are able to extract Charlie. Thank you for sharing.

Great shot, Debbie!

Thanks, David. I’ve always been fascinated by sharp nature closeups. In my quest to make my own I have found it is a little about know-how, and a lot about how much money you are willing to spend on equipment. I have accumulated some moderately-expensive gear, and have thus worked my way up to moderately-good images.

For some not-so-closeups, here is a set I took at Red Rock Canyon, outside of Las Vegas:

Very nice! But if Charlie can shoot an Orchid, I can shoot an Iris…mine is in space though:

This is known as the Iris Nebula – NGC 7023 in Cepheus. Lots of exposure time to capture things like this. My arms got really tired after a while. ;)

Here is a nice photo I took on vacation in Ireland. It is a view looking out into the fishing port at Kinsale, on the southern tip of Ireland. If you ever get the chance, it is a beautiful spot.

And here is a picture of our pond in the back yard of our home

And just one more looking back from the pond to our home during our last snow

I caught this double rainbow from my front yard a couple years ago

.
This hydrangea grows to about 4ft across and blooms right beside the door to my workshop every year.

.
I took these in the fall of 2011. This is less than a mile from our house.
