📷: @ck_outside "i chased this particular storm for hours. lightning photography can be tricky to compose because you never know where the bolt will strike. i set up at several locations and failed to catch anything significant. before giving up, i headed out to the dark backroads near my house and found the north end of a storm passing offshore." | a7r ii | 16-35mm f/4 | 35mm | f/7.1 | 15 sec | iso 1250 | #sonyalpha#bealpha
La-based photographer @danorst shares what it's like being a content creator in the city 👉🏽 "i have lived in los angeles for more than 8 years now, and i’m still finding new ways the city impresses me. la is a quick drive from some of the most impressive landscapes i’ve seen. the downtown skyline is one of my favorite subjects to photograph. i enjoy searching for different perspectives and ways to frame the city."

📷: @billydekom "for most of the trip you couldn't see these peaks. they were clouded in. i was up there sunrise and sunset, trying to catch some good light. after back to back days of uncooperative weather, this morning the clouds cleared just enough for sunburst peak to show itself and catch some beautiful light. this trip reaffirmed to me that persistence pays off. no matter what happens, you've just gotta keep showing up. and you might luck out on some great conditions." | a7r ii | 16-35mm f4 | 16mm | f16 | 1/5 sec | iso 100 | #sonyalpha#bealpha
