Adobe’s Popular $10/mo Plan Missing

Apparently, it was just a ‘test.’ Adobe recently took down from its website the $9.99 monthly subscription plan for Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop that many photographers have grown accustomed to, since its inception in 2013, for post-processing software options.   Did anyone out there see this when it happened? Anyone get upset about it, maybe […]

Particles discharged from the sun travel 93 million miles toward Earth before they are drawn toward the magnetic north and south poles. While Earth is constantly being bombarded with debris, most of the time the […]

Wild Goose Island, Glacier National Park

‘A Montana Legend’ -As retold by S.E. Schlosser “In the middle of St. Mary Lake in Glacier National Park is a small island halfway between two shores.
