    Smuggler's Notch

    I arrived early in the morning to the walkway by Smuggler's Notch to find the whole area engulfed by a void of fog. I was exploring around and shooting some reflections of the trees in a nearby pond when I suddenly noticed the fog was slowly receding, revealing the amazingly colorful foliage on the hills. It was a pretty magical start to my week-long photography stay-cation in Vermont.

    Watkins Glen

    This is in the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York, taken a little over a week ago. I highly recommend visiting this place in the fall as it is one of my favorite places in the US northeast. FYI - I am not actually off trail here, my camera is resting on a railing. Photo by Matthew Macpherson.

    The Last Days of Venus as the Evening Star

    That's not a young crescent Moon poised above the hills along the western horizon at sunset. It's Venus in a crescent phase. About 54 million kilometers away and less than 20 percent illuminated, it was captured by telescope and camera on September 30 near Bacau, Romania. The bright celestial beacon is now languishing in the evening twilight, its days as the Evening Star in 2018 coming to a close. But it also grows larger in apparent size and becomes an ever thinner crescent in telescopic views.

    Asperitas Clouds Over New Zealand

    What kind of clouds are these? Although their cause is presently unknown, such unusual atmospheric structures, as menacing as they might seem, do not appear to be harbingers of meteorological doom. Formally recognized as a distinct cloud type only last year, Asperitas clouds can be stunning in appearance, unusual in occurrence, and are relatively unstudied. Whereas most low cloud decks are flat bottomed, asperitas clouds appear to have significant vertical structure underneath.

    Havasu Falls, Arizona

    Known as the Garden of Eden in the desert, the Havasupai Reservation is not only home to the Grand Canyon area's indigenous Native American tribe, but it is home to the reservations crowning glory - the Havasu Falls. As one of the most famous and beautiful waterfalls in the world, the waterfall attracts almost as much interest as the rim of the Grand Canyon. Helicopter and horse tours to the village of Havasupai are all popular and easy ways to visit. However, the real hikers will want to make the challenging trek that travels through the barren desert and baking sun on the 10-mile Havasupai Trail from Hualapai Hilltop.

    Red Planet, Red Moon, and Mars

    Mars is also known as The Red Planet, often seen with a reddish tinge in dark night skies. Mars shines brightly at the upper left of this gorgeous morning twilight view from Mornington Peninsula, Victoria, Australia, but the Moon and planet Earth look redder still. Taken on July 27, the totally eclipsed Moon is setting. It looks reddened because the Earth's umbral shadow isn't completely dark. Instead Earth's shadow is suffused with a faint red light from all the planet's sunsets and sunrises seen from the perspective of an eclipsed Moon.

    The One True Monolith

    Uluru. Needs no explanation. Truly difficult to capture the massiveness of this sandstone formation. Every cleft and imperfection has cultural/"Dreamtime" significance. Unfortunately, the bush flies kept me from staying longer. You can see the smoke from controlled spinifex burnings begins the rock. You can see in the middle, a group of people walking on top. Picking up some Aboriginal hitchhikers, their first question was if I had climbed it.

    The Galaxy Tree

    First came the trees. In the town of Salamanca, Spain, the photographer noticed how distinctive a grove of oak trees looked after being pruned. Next came the galaxy.

    The end of the lands: Bunda cliffs, Australia

    The Bunda cliffs extend for around 100 km along the Great Australian Bight near its northern extremity and are close to the Nullarbor Plain in a very sparsely settled area of Australia. Geologically the cliffs are of Tertiary age and are composed of fossiliferous limestone.

    Foggy Small Town, by Duowen Chen

    "This photo was captured at noon, on 25 December 2013, from the castle which is located on the edge of the small town. It is the perfect viewpoint for the panorama of the almost-intact historical town. The fog and mist suffused and gave the town a sense of mystery." Taken at Český Krumlov, South Bohemian, Czech Republic.

    China, the Wild and Remote bits

    "It was a muggy day, the sort where you feel your t-shirt sticking to you before you even realize it. We hired some local guides, who then hired some even more local guides to help show the way to the spire we wanted to ascend. Boy was it grueling! Jagged rocks, thorny bushes, all-fours most of the way. Sometimes the only thing to hold onto was a thorn bush or a glassy-evil-jaded rock. At the top, I looked down to see all kinds of grisly lacerations... but gathered my wits to get this photo!"

    Mauna Kea Magic

    The Big Island of Hawaii showed me the darkest night sky I've ever seen, especially at nearly 14,000 feet in elevation, near the summit of Mauna Kea. While the naked eye can only see so much, I was blown away by all the detail that the camera was able to pick up such as the airglow, Kilauea Caldera glowing through the fog, and even some zodiacal light looming behind the near setting moon. This panorama is consisted of 22 vertical images at 24mm.

    Rainbow in the Himalayas

    We all were reluctant to rush back down to rainy Khumbu valley after experiencing a stunning sunrise behind the Everest from a hill-top in freezing cold. So, we took more stops than usual on our way back and were gifted by this rare optical phenomena around Nuptse summit- a Circumhorizontal arc (combined with a 22° hallo around the Sun). It took around 5 minutes for it to properly illuminate, but made the sense of spectacular Himalayas even more spectacular!
