    PHOTOGRAPHERS
    Steven Edger
    Steven has been taking pictures for nearly 5 decades. He started taking pictures with a film camera made by Kodak, and after mowing what seemed like thousands of yards he saved enough money to purchase his first Nikon. He served on his high schools year yearbook staff as a photographer.
    His companion throughout his life has been a camera.

    He has traveled to numerous countries, and lived in several more. In 2005 after meeting a Ukrainian girl at University of Kentucky, he ended the semester and packed his bags and headed overseas to explore and visit someplace new.

    After Ukraine, he traveled to Thailand and lived there for 3 years. He loves traveling and meeting new people and cultures - it is one of life's greatest gifts.

    The city looks different at night and even more beautiful in the rain. When I can't sleep, I go out with my camera and shoot the city. I don't shoot much.

    I lived on the Ky River and started on my nature photography journey. I sat up a camera behind the house and hand fed humming birds in summer and fed winter birds suet cakes. I was super excited that I was having blue bird visitors that winter of 2021 as a bird watcher I'd never had a blue bird ever show.up.in lexington where.im from, but living rurally they were everywhere!

    This photo is part of a series of photos I took for a very nice sunrise on January 22, 2024. As the sun started to hit the horizon, the sky started out pink, then to hews of purple and red, and eventually to this bright orange color that is seen in this photograph. Also, scene is a sun pillar, or a light pillar, which is a reflection of crystals as the sun hits the horizon. This photo was taken with an iPhone 15 Pro Max, and some editing was done with the Snapseed app

    Title or Location: American Kestrel at the Canadian Raptor Conservancy
    First off, I have to say that I am not a "Birder". But I love challenging my photographic skills and abilities. The American Kestrel is not a big bird, and it is fast. So even when you know its takeoff is imminent, it is still hard to get a nice clear photo of the bird. This particular image was shot with a Canon R6 camera, with the RF100-500mm f/4.5-7.1 L IS USM lens at 1/5000 sec, f/7.1 and ISO 4000. I used the animal eye-tracking feature of this mirrorless full frame camera, and was very plea

    Title or Location: Horseshow Bend in Page, AZ
    I had shot the sunrise at Horseshoe Bend the same morning and was hoping for a blazing sunset at this location after talking to the other photographers present at sunrise. Even with some clouds, we were not so fortunate and when the sunlight was casting on the water I switched to black and white mentality and was able to capture this photo. You can just see the setting sun in the upper right corner for the photo.

    Title or Location: Nene Valley Railway - Wansford
    I was on a leisurely family walk going towards Nene Valley Railway in Wansford when serendipity struck, and I found myself in the perfect spot to capture a captivating moment. The sight of a steam train preparing to depart from the station sparked a rush of excitement and nostalgia. The timeless allure of steam trains and the bustling atmosphere of the railway added a touch of history and charm to my photography experience.

    It was a cloudy day and my cat was up in the tree. he had always had very deep blue, but with all the defused light from the clouds and the contrast from the tree bark, It sent me running for my camera.I shot it on a Nikon D5600, with a 70 - 200mm lens, on January 25, 2024.I shot it raw while in manual mode, the aperture was 4.1, the iso 100, and the shutter speed was 1 over 700.

    This one took a bit of planning to catch the Milky Way in the place I wanted, the Weather, Moon, and Milky Way core all had to be right and as you might guess it took a few seasons for it to come together, every time it was a walk in the dark over the sand dunes from Pennard to get to the right spot on the cliff edge, I'm a little picky when it comes to star trails and although there are certain formulas for shutter speed to "visibly" limit star trails I'd rather have none, so I dragged my Star
