I suppose I should post about my giant macro photo of the TI-84 Plus CE PCB. I took the images several years ago, but couldn't get a good composite image. A few days ago, though, I tried again, and got success. You can also look at one of my uncorrected images.

Image not embedded to avoid hammering unsuspecting users with a 65 megapixel image.
During the Winter season, a trip to the snow is about 4 hours away. However, snow came within 40 minutes so of course we had to venture up. Being the usual sun-spoiled Californians' none of us were prepared - except for the part where pretty much everyone still buys 4WD trucks - but it was so worth it.

That's a great shot! Love how you captured the road in the snowy landscape. Makes me want to drive there.

You didn't mention what you shot that with, I assume a drone? If so, what drone? Or was it shot from atop a hill?
Shot with my phone at the top! I brought my camera but left the memory card in my car; we took a friends truck up. I also forgot Mini Me at home Sad

Captured this using Lightroom Mobile CC so I could shoot in DNG/RAW. I would like a drone but its not a want or a need. I have friends with drones if I ever need to use one, weve got a few projects lined up with the drone though!
I took a picture of the Motorola SC414181FG16 ASIC in a TI-92 yesterday.

Got a new lens--a 35mm f/1.4--a few months back for astrophotography. Though currently using it for portraiture.

During this shoot I realized I didn't have all the tools I needed. This was my first time using a flash for outdoor, daytime photography and it didn't occur to me that my cameras fastest shutter speed when using a flash is 1/180th of a second. So a few photos were way too bright. Ended up shooting at ISO50 and a weak neutral density filter (that was part of the lens package), which thankfully worked in keeping the images from getting too overblown.

Immediately after this shoot I went to a camera store and bought neutral density filters of varying strengths so I can physically limit the light entering my lens rather than adjusting a lot settings on the camera.
Went out and did some bird watching/photography with friends. First time ever shooting birds on camera, so I bought a cheap little 2x tele-extender so my 75-300mm could get some more oomf to it. I meant to use my Canon T1i but totally forgot and brought my Canon 6D. The T1i is a "crop sensor" camera, and would have multiplied the zoom by another 1.6x, letting me reach 960mm. The sad part is, the aperture also increases when using the tele-extender, so these were really shot at 600mm and f/22. I had to bump up the ISO to ~2000-8000 to get meaningful shots but I'm not about to go drop a couple grand on a lens so I can get better photos. haha

Manual focusing was a pain in the rear, so these may seem slightly blurry. There's also a lack of sharpness which is likely due to a mix of a couple decade old (cheap-ish) lens and the cheap tele-extender I bought, coupled with the fact that the focal plane was apparently super narrow. Still tons of learning to do, I was told that the shutter speed should be equivalent of the zoom, which is why I bumped the ISO up high, was so I can be at or above 1/600th of a second.
