An extremely bright day which makes for some extreme light and shadow contrasts. Located in rural Andalucia, Spain, near Linares an old lead-mining town. This is a roman bridge located at the National Monument El Pielago.
ISO 200, 17mm, f/6.3, 1/250 sec
2. Night Photography
A late night ski at below zero temps at Mount Kato in Mankato, Minnesota
ISO 1600, 35mm, f/4, 1/25 sec.
I don’t take a lot of night photography shots, as I’m more of an early to rise, early to bed sort of person so this would probably be where I am weakest when it comes to photography.
3. Portrait (up close)
I am including two portraits. I wanted to make sure I covered my bases with the “up close” definition so one is extremely up close, and one a bit further away, but still concentrated on being a family portrait
Taken around a campfire in rural Minnesota, USA. The marshmallow was meant to be a s’more, but looked so good it never made it!
ISO 200, 30mm, f/5.6, 1/100 sec
Vejer de la Frontera, Andalucia, Spain (recently voted one of the most beautiful towns in Spain) with a three-generations Spanish Family.

Learning a new card game in rural Spain, near Linares in the province of Jaen, Andalucia, Spain.
ISO 320, 17mm, f/5.6, 1/25 sec
5. Market / busy scene
Buying fish in the supermarket in Linares, Spain. Although located within the store, the fish market is entirely its own entity, packaged and paid for separately.

The Honeysuckle flower. You can actually bite a tiny piece off the ends of this flower and suck out the sweet nectar that collects there – for a fast (small) treat when walking in the woods in the midwest (USA)

9. Documentary photography
Digging tiles lines for field drainage in rural Minnesota, USA.
