Thanks for visiting my humble photo album!

I'm fairly new to photography, and by that I mean until recently, I knew nothing about composition, lighting, or how to use a camera in anything but full-automatic mode, despite having used various cameras my whole life to take snapshots of this or that.
Around late spring, early summer 2012 I started hiking with some friends who were into photography, and took my own camera along. I enjoyed it so much I started taking online courses and reading, learning about how to actually use a camera; the relationship between aperture, shutter speed and ISO, and how to frame a shot to look pleasing to the eye.
Well, fast forward a few months, here you will find my early beginnings and latest attempts to apply what I learned.
Being new to the hobby, I'm interested in many different aspects of photography, and have not seemed to settle down on any one thing yet. I enjoy (attempting) macro photography, nature, astrophotography, and anything that involves interesting shadow, reflections, or light.
Please feel free to rate my photos, and if you feel so inclined, to leave a comment if you have anything to say about any one in particular.
