The quiet atmosphere of the dawn, the passing storm. They bring along soft and dramatic light that captures ephemeral subjects. For brief periods, these subjects seem to grab all the attention of the landscape. This talk is about those transient moments. Moments suspended on a blade of grass, moments for the convergence of light, atmosphere, and emotion.

Manuel Palacios is a scientist and outdoor photographer based out of Upstate New York in the Mohawk River Valley area. For Manuel, landscape photography is not just a way to document moments, but a means to express his deep connection to nature and interpret the world around him. With a passion for pushing the boundaries of photography, he is constantly experimenting with new techniques and sharing his knowledge with others, inspiring them to see the world in new ways through the lens of their cameras. Manuel’s work is a true celebration of the natural world and a testament to the power of photography to connect us to the beauty of nature.
