Some of these photos are lucky (for the photographer) accidents, some are not quite family-friendly; some, really funny; many just spectacularly good photography. Apologies for the advertising that pops up every once in a while, but overall, many of the shots are worth enduring the shortcomings in the presentation.

Once photography enters your bloodstream, it is like a disease.

Software: Too numerous to list but my most used utility is ShiftN for perspective correction

Gear: Canon G12, no tripod, no lenses, no flash, no remote, no cases or bags!

Same link as mine. They might be done in post but not necessarily. I remember seeing #67, or one very much like it with the moon as the sixth "olympic ring" on the news a couple of times. Timing for #33 is very tight - tolerance for this effect must be 10 ms or less - but possible. The chance of any one photographer getting a shot like this is slim indeed, but if hundreds of photographers are taking an average of several (or several tens) of shots each over a period of a few years, then the chance that one of them will get a shot like that one turn out to be pretty good. Similar for lining the cloud up with the trumpet bell (#73) or the bird's moutn (#78) or whatever (#31) but a photographer with good previsualization and reasonable mobility can up his chances a lot by moving around to choose just the right point of view from which to take such a shot.
