Photographer @gabornagy_photography shares this shot from Lake Balaton frozen over in Hungry 🌾 • • "We have had some extreme cold days in Hungary last January so Lake Balaton (the largest lake in Central Europe) could freeze entirely. It was a 592 km2 of continuous ice hockey rink." | a7R II | FE Zeiss 16-35mm F4 | 1/30 sec | f/22 | ISO 100 | 24mm |

📷: @phil.yoon "Approaching Horseshoe Bend for the first time, the photos I've seen before simply did not do it justice. The sheer magnitude of the landscape left me in awe. The Sony a7R III & 16-35mm were the perfect combination for achieving the image I had in mind. " | a7R III | 16-35mm @16 | f/11 | 1/40 sec | ISO 800 | 16mm | #AlphaCollective

Photographer @kaihornung shares some background behind this shot 👉🏽 "I wanted to have the small waterfall as a foreground element in line with the large waterfall in the back. It must have looked rather funny how I reached over to my tripod trying hard not to fall off the slippery rocks. I always take several exposures to capture moving water so that I can blend those exposures in Photoshop to selectively have softness, structure and detail in my shot." | a7R II | 24-70mm | 26mm | f8 | 0.8 to 8 sec | ISO 100 |

📷: @mdpgraphy "Before I went to Zion National Park, I purposely didn't look up any photos of the park. This allowed me to see the unique golden hour light that seems to hang in the air in Zion Canyon with fresh eyes and capture it in my own way. Don't get caught up in how other photographers see things, because your unique perspective is your biggest asset anyway." | a7R II | 24-70mm f/2.8 GM | f/14 | 1/25 sec | ISO 200 | 29 mm |

The details of the inside of a wave captured by @sta@moniz 🌊 • • "The surf led me to photography and as far back as I could remember each and every Sony camera that came through my hands was first taken straight to the ocean for testing. It was no different here with the Sony a7R III. This image by far is pure perfection to my standards in surf photography. Those precious milliseconds count in a breaking wave making a o.k. photo a great one. Freezing a moment in time to share for years to come. Having now a camera that can shoot 10fps @ 42mp its a dream come true." | a7R III (with underwater housing) | 18mm f2.8 | 1/1000th | ISO 200 | f7.1 |

The secluded island of Molokai captured by photographer @bra@braywoowoo 🏝 • • "This was captured while on the first helicopter ride I have EVER been on! I flew from Maui to the secluded island of Molokai. The drastic cliffs and ancient volcanic craters completely blew my mind." | a7R II | 16-35mm f4 @ 16 | 1/400 sec | f7.1 | ISO 200 |

📷: @philngyn 👉🏽 "We needed a place to camp for the night and found this picture-perfect hill opposing Mt. Cook/Aoraki. We set up camp, enjoyed a hearty dinner, and waited for the sun set on one of the most incredible places down in the South Island of New Zealand." | a7R II | 70-200 f4 | 100 mm | ISO 250 | f/7.1 | 1/400 sec | #AlphaCollective

Photographer @winterhawkstudios shares this tip for shooting at night: “Shooting at night presents obvious challenges including nailing down focus. For best results, shoot in manual mode and turn on 'MF Assist' to help achieve optimum sharpness in any desired elements of a particular scene - in this case, the building at centre frame.” | a7R II | 12mm (fisheye) | f2.8 | ISO 1000 | 13 sec |

📷: @spacebypixel "One thing I love about golden hour is that the light can change in the matter of minutes. I setup around blue hour, but the sun starting to peak out so I quickly setup for a 2 sec exposure for a dreamy mood." | a6000 | 12mm | ISO 100 | f/8 | 2 sec | #AlphaCollective

Niagra Falls on a cold winter night captured by #SonyArtisan @tonygalephoto • • "I knew that the falls lit up at night, so I went down just after sunset to take photos. Because of all the most from the falls the angle looking across gave the dramatic view I wanted.” | a7R III | 12-24 f/4 GM | f/13 | 13 sec | ISO 400 | 12mm |

Icy layers courtesy of photographer @lucsteven 🌲🌲 • • Here's a tip 👉🏽 "This image was taken handheld. When taking images handheld, you should always turn on the camera image stabilization- it will help get a sharper image." | a77 II | 55-300mm | f/9 | 1/250 sec | ISO 100 | 160 mm |

An aerial view of one of America's most popular destination cities captured by @dylan.schwartz during #CES2018 🌆 • • "When shooting aerial photography of Las Vegas, my favorite time of the day is about 30 minutes after sunset- when there’s still some light and color in the sky, but the lights of city have already come on for the night. It creates an amazing interplay between artificial and natural light, and the dynamic range of the a7R III makes it an amazing camera for capturing the city is all it’s shining beauty." | a7R III | 24-70mm GM | 1/160 sec | f2.8 | ISO 1600 | #alphacollective
