While wandering around the water front of Buenos Aires I cam to a series of derelict ships that look like they were tied to the docks there and forgotten. This ship looked like it used to be some sort of big dinner cruise boat. It was completely stripped and all the was left was rusting metal. Now of course I love rust and decay and I really liked the symmetry.
In norther California there is magnificent area called the Redwood Forrest. Giant moss covered trees and a beautiful area. You can wander the road pull off and take a short hike into these woods and always come back with exceptional images. I used a Phase One P65+ to do these shot. The detail in the prints which I have enlarged to 48×55 is amazing.
Scotland had many great places to visit and I still have a list for my next visit. I returned with so many nice images. My shooting companion on this trip Steve Gosling and I spent a while at this church shooting. I wonder why it was abandoned so long ago? It had so many great spots to shoot. I even did a real nice PAno there. I’ll post that sometime in the future. I liked this shot looking up at the church and using the grave stones as a way to lead they eye into the shot.
How do you describe what it is like to be a photographer in Scotland. It’s an amazing place and almost every time you turn your head you find a scene worth photographing. Being there this past fall we had great color and great light as can be seen in this stunning shot. This is one of the classic places to shoot in Scotland. Water, cold and a mountain.
Wow, I fel bad. I have tried to make a post everyday if possible and I have failed recently. Between extensive traveling and the Holidays, I just plain ran out of hours. well all that is behind me for new and I am going to try to get back on track. Also, I am working on a new look for this blog, so soon I hope you’ll see a new look.
Todays image was taken in Scotland. we were driving to one of the locations to shoot a castle and we saw this amazing light and fog happening. So, we pulled off the road and shot away. I like this as you can see the low clouds, water and color of the fall. We had amazing light during the trip and got some incredible images. I was warned that it was Scotland and we could have a week of rain. We were quite fortunate.
Sometimes it is not the majestic landscape that is picturesque, but it is the manmade landscape. This is a shot of the Cromwell Dam in New Zealand.
It’s not too often one gets to travel to the edge of the planet. UI am very fortunate to have traveled to many edges of the planet and one of my favorite is Earnslaw Burn in New Zealand. I had my friend and instructor on the PODAS workshop take a picture of me there. Think I’ll give this to my mon for Christmas. It has been an amazing time in New Zealand with so many good images that I’ll be editing for the winter. Now it is head home in a few days for the Holidays then it is off to Bangkok and China in January.
I have been in New zealand for a week now and just taking amazing images. Looking forward to sharing more as the weeks go by. This image was made at sunrise in Deer Park. An area used to make many of the Lord Of The Rings movies. Just incredible colors.

I am in New Zealand as you probably know. We start a PODAS workshop on Monday and we have been doing prep work for the workshop. The gear arrived this morning and everything is in order. So, this afternoon Drew, Collin and myself headed out to take photos. We found lots of nice locations, and this image is one of the ones I liked best. We have a whole week coming up shooting incredible spots so keep watching for more.
