    Title or Location: Hoover Dam, Arizona side, Arizona
    My son and I were on the first day of a 5-day road trip taking in the Grand Loop: Zion, Bryce and Grand Canyon National Parks. On our way to Utah, we took a detour to see Hoover Dam, which my son had never seen. Probably the most photographed dam in the world, I wanted to do my own spin on it, and found the bridge over the spillway on the Arizona side to be an architectural wonder. Smartphone capture.

    Taken in April of 2011. The Winter had provided a lot of snow in Yosemite, and the warm Spring weather was creating some spectacular sites. This shot was taken with my old Nikon D70. 1/60 sec at f.22. ISO 200.

    Title or Location: Sand Harbor Silhouette
    I was traveling around Lake Tahoe with a friend and we stopped at the Sand Harbor area of the lake. There are some very dramatic boulders and scenery there. I positioned this silhouetted tree on the right side of the image. I had been shooting pictures of my dog in the water, so I had my Canon EOS 5D Mark II set on shutter priority mode, 1/500 second @ f/5. My 24-100mm zoom lens was set at 70mm, and I still got great depth of field.

    One of my favorite drives in the eastern Sierra is the Poole Power Plant Road, which winds along Lee Vining Creek. A ways up the road are these falls, Big Bend Falls, which cascade over rocks and dead trees. My wife and I take this road every time we're up in the eastern Sierra, as we did this past October.

    Title or Location: Charlies Hut, Carneys Creek
    As anyone who chases milkyway photos will tell you, they take some careful planning and often a lack of sleep. Charlies Hut is in the Scenic Rim. It's about a 2hr drive from home, and with the help of Photopills, we could see that the moon would have set with the milkyway still visible at about 4am. So alarms were set for 1.30am, coffee was made and off we went. I use the intervalometer on my Canon 6D mark ii to shoot between 15-20 images of the sky. The lens I used was a Samyang 14mm, set

    Title or Location: Just north of Brechin on Hwy 169.
    May 10 the northern lights hit a G5 storm, a KP index of 9, the highest it will go, and the best storm we've seen in over 20 years. I drove my 10 year old son north to see them, this was a chance of a lifetime. I managed to get several amazing photos. Canon R6M2, RF10-20mm lens at 10mm, 30sec at f4, iso 1000, manual focusing. This was looking more north-west as most of the bright colours could be seen to the south, west and just north of us.

    Cremorne Point is always a favourite choice to capture the southerly sunsets with the Sydney Opera House and the city skyline in the frame. This isn't a long exposure shot but a motion blur added to the water in post production.

    Title or Location: Stub Stewart State Park Hilltop area
    This was the day of famous Northern Lights visible in most of the North America. Stubs Stewart is the most ideal dark area for star gazing so I reached there around 11pm. As expected, it was full of enthusiasts. The lights were predicted to be at peak between 10pm - 2am. Around 2pm, when we though the "show was over", the lights started getting incredibly bright, and that is when this picture was taken. Interestingly, the lights were bright in some regions and other regions were faded enough to
