The World at Night project
Last night the sky in the high latitudes exploded with bright aurora. I was doing my last night of the photo workshop in Iceland and this was the view near midnight. The experience of watching the aurora crowns forming overhead, the “dancing spirits” across the sky, is beyond photography. If you are in the Arctic latitudes, the northern lights are still in high activity in the next two nights. It doesn’t matter where you are in those latitudes, look for anywhere dark away from city light preferably with open northern horizon.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! A lobster crawls over the rocky sea floor near Hook Head Light in County Wexford, Ireland. According to legend, the saying ‘By Hook or by Crook’ is derived from this location. Oliver Cromwell, the English military leader, proposed to invade Ireland during the English Civil War by way of the village of Crooke - in Waterford - or from Hook Head in Wexford.

Ireland is a frequently photographed place, with ‘forty shades of green,’ beautiful landscapes, and charming towns. But Ireland under the sea is equally beautiful, with a stunning variety of marine life, ranging from marine mammals and fish to colorful invertebrates.

We’re embracing the drama of black and white for this Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPblackandwhite.
Try our black-and-white filters in photos and stories, and make adjustments using the contrast tool. Grayscale has a wide range and it can help focus the subject by getting rid of distracting colors, especially if the light isn’t great.
Go to where the action is happening. Your photos and videos don’t have to be serious and moody. Find a dog park or outdoor concert to capture playful and dynamic scenes.
Look for texture and patterns. Back away from buildings to see the repeating shapes of windows and doors; or get close to flowers and leaves to magnify their lines and silhouettes.
PROJECT RULES: Please add the #WHPblackandwhite hashtag only to photos and videos taken over this weekend and only submit your own visuals to the project. If you include music in your video submissions, please only use music to which you own the rights. Any tagged photo or video taken over the weekend is eligible to be featured next week.
