Rainy Colors in Dubai

Thanks again for the Dubai Photowalk

It was great meeting everyone out there… and I’m very excited about our upcoming 13 photowalks in the USA! Be sure to check Tour.TreyRatcliff.com to find out more!

Daily Photo – Rainy Colors in Dubai

As far as I can tell, it doesn’t rain much here in the city. Rene and I happened to be still out after the photowalk when the rain started to fall. We got pretty excited and started taking photos like cray cray. This is a really cool area of town that goes right along the beach. Over to the right is just a 30 second walk out to the ocean.

Walking in Yosemite

Are you on Tumblr?

If so, add your link below so others can find you! :)

Upgraded my Tumblr Page

I decided to put a little more love into my weak Tumblr effort. I actually really like Tumblr and I see a lot of beautiful things there, at least from the people that I follow currently.

Someone already had the name “Stuckincustoms” (Arg!) so I used TreyRatcliffPhotos.tumblr.com. Enjoy! And thank you to former Texan Annie Werner for the encouragement and help! :)

Daily Photo – Walking in Yosemite

Here’s a photo from a walk along this beautiful little path in Yosemite. It looks very serene and welcoming, yes? Well it is! I was sad I only got to spend one day here in the forest… I’d like to go back. Actually, I’d really like to get to Yosemite when it is snowing. I bet there are a thousand interesting photos all over the place… but now, by the time out I find out it is snowing, it will take me too long to get over there! :(

I took this one during the crazy photowalk there… we had so much fun!

PhotoWalk in Sydney!

See you in Australia

Thanks to a last-minute change-of-plans, it turns out that I am headed on a secret adventure in Australia! I’d like to start it off with a PhotoWalk in Sydney! Here’s the details:

Everyone is invited for this fun event – all skill levels… it doesn’t even matter if you just have your mobile phone and like to snap away with that. Personally, I’ll have the whole shootin’ match with my tripod and stuff, but this will be immediately obvious upon arrival.

Cost: Free
Date and Time: Tuesday, SEPT 25th at 5 PM Sydney Time
Location: Sydney, First Fleet Park http://goo.gl/maps/uh8p2
Who to Bring: A family-friendly event! Bring the brood!
Photo Sharing: After the photowalk, attach your photos to this event in Google+!

I know there are many beginner and serious photographers in the area, and I look forward to meeting you! I’m VERY sorry for the last-minute notice, but my schedule has been erratic lately.

We will walk along the waterfront, take photos, and I’ll go through several demonstrations. I’ll describe what I’m doing, and all questions are welcome. I hope it is both a great photo-experience and learning-experience! :)

Daily Photo – Fast Action in New York City

Speaking of PhotoWalks, I took this photo right after the photowalk in New York City a few weeks ago! I emerged from Grand Central Station and was about to walk across the street when I saw this scene. That guy was still as a statue, checking his phone while the world went on around him.

We’ll start at 5 PM, but I’ll be there early goofing around if you want to hang out. I’ll have the Genie from SYRP with me as well, and I’ll try not to drop it in the lake.

We can meet in St. Omer’s Park, probably over by the bench (near the roundabout). After the event, we can go grab some chocolates or a snack or something.

See you soon!

Sheep on the way to ParadiseThis title makes it sounds a bit like they are about to be slaughtered...  or maybe they are suicide-sheep, about to meet some sweet sweet virgin sheep in paradise.  But no, this is not what I mean.  There is a little town past Glenorchy, New Zealand called "Paradise".  I passed these sheep while on the way there.I never made it to Paradise, truthfully.  I turned around.  It felt like such a long way to get here, and I had to turn around to get back to Queenstown before it got too late.I took this photo with my new Nikon 28-300 lens.  I love it so far!  This one was shot at f/5.6, 70mm, and ISO 100.Read more here at the Stuck in Customs blog.
