The Grand Canyon, Lipan Point. Because of total darkness, there was no way to focus on the distance to the point being struck by lightning. I had to turn off auto-focus and dial in what I figured was the proper setting. Canon 6D with Canon EF 24-105mm 1:4 IS UM. Exposure: f/6.3 6sec ISO 320.

Biography

When I was younger, I was a good photographer, but work and family took me away from my passion. When I retired seven years ago, I decided to enter the digital age of photography. As a trained observer, I tend to see things differently than most and have an eye for good subject matter. When I take my pictures, I try and capture just what I see that I think others will enjoy. I don’t manipulate my images, other than cropping them, in any way that would change that which was caught by my camera. To accomplish this, I tweak the camera settings and not the photo. All my best to all.
