What is your favourite thing about coming home? I have a tradition with my kids that we go out for dinner and catch up on my first day back. There’s nothing I love more than trading stories and having a laugh over good food. No matter how tired I am, or what else is going on we always seem to make the time together work. Home truly is where your heart is, and mine is wherever they are. This image was from my trip to Iceland in March. I know I promised South America pics - they are coming! This is another shot taken on my Sony A7R III with the Sony 12-24 mm f/4 at 12 mm. I love this lens so much ♥️ And guess what finally arrived at my front door when I got home!? My very own 24 mm f/1.4. I had a chance to test out this lens during my #100NightsUnderTheStarsProject thanks to the support of @sonyalpha I fell in love with this low light monster of a lens, and had to get one of my own! It is new moon this weekend and the mountains are calling! #BeAlpha #AlphaCollective

Original post follows: In January I embarked on a personal challenge to spend #100NightsUnderTheStars It has been super challenging to say the least. The clouds have chased me hundreds upon hundreds of miles in search of clear skies, and some of the clearest nights at home in the Rockies were some of the coldest, reaching low temperatures of -35 C. It has been tiring (...if I’m honest, it’s been brutally exhausting) at times. But also so rewarding in countless ways. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I have received so much support that it seems impossible to fail. My project is supported by @SonyAlpha and @BHphoto. I have also received invaluable support from friends who have driven hundreds of miles so I could sleep between shoots, and patiently encouraged me when fatigue has gotten the best of me. They have pushed me to learn and grow, even in moments when I would have rather slept. They critique my work, share ideas, and dream with me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Today I want to say a special thank you to @mrhollender , @missjessbess , @simonmikesimon , and @dw_photo_ca for being in my corner, and @SonyAlpha and @BHPhoto for supporting my creative journey. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I hope you had a chance to tune into my stories from my desert adventures with @missjessbess last week. I was home long enough to wash my clothes and recharge my batteries. Tomorrow I will land in Iceland with @dw_photo_ca . Follow along on our quest to chase aurora for the next leg of my #100NightsUnderTheStarsProject ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Shot my my #SonyA7RIII with the new (and incredibly sharp) #Sony 24 mm 1.4 G Master. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This image was a blue hour blend. I shot the foreground at f/11, ISO 100 for 30 seconds, and blended it with 47 stacked exposures for the sky shot at f/1.4, ISO 10000, for 3.2 seconds. #BeAlpha #AlphaCollective #SlikTripods #SlikUSA #ShootSlik
