Stalker Castle

Castle Stalker, Scotland

Castle Stalker, Scotland

I shot most of my images with the Phase One camera and digital back.  However, I do have a few other cameras that I carry with me not to mention my trusty iPhone.  This image was made on the Olympus OMD 5 using the dramatic art effect.  I really liked it so I thought it would be fun to share.  This is shot in Scotland at Castle Stalker.

New Zealand Ice

Iceberg At Mt. Cook, New Zealand

Iceberg At Mt. Cook, New Zealand

Let’s move to another part of the world.  I was looking for blog candidate images the other day from my inventory of images and this image jumped out.  This image was made in New Zealand at Mt. Cook.  I took a Zodiac ride into the lake filled with these mini Icebergs broken off from a near by glacier.  The skies turned dark and the color popped and I clicked.  Hope you enjoy this image.

Wide Angle Skyline Arch

Skyline Arch, Arches National Park

Skyline Arch, Arches National Park

Another image from an absolutely amazing trip to the Moab area.  This shot was made at Sand Arch in Arches National Park.  I used a Phase One IQ 180 camera and a new 28mm LS to create it.  Using depth of field and selective focus I was able to keep everything sharp fro the foreground to the background.  Add great light and it was not hard to get a good image.  I used Capture One to add drama to the image and adjust the brightness of the tree trunk.

The Last Shot Of The Day and Week

Fiery Furnace, Arches National Park

Fiery Furnace, Arches National Park

It’s been a good week in Moab.  I was tagging along on workshops by workshops by Andy Biggs.  We have been centered in Moab making excursions into Canyonlands and Arches National Parks.  Both are amazing  with spectacular overlooks and made for photographers.  This shot was made an area called Fiery Furnace.  I used a Phase One IQ180 and a 150mm lens to capture this shot. I ahve a few more images that will appear in coming days.  This was just one of those moments where the right light and clouds just come together.

A View

Arches National PArk, Utah

Arches National Park, Utah

I have been working at an Andy Biggs workshop the last few days.  We have had the chance to shoot some very cool vistas.  This one was done in Arches National Park near Skyline Arch.  We were shooting the arch and went back to the cars the back way.  And, turning the bend I saw this view.  The detail is amazing as it was made with a Phase One IQ 180 and DF+ camera.

Skyline Arch

Skyline Arch, Arches NP, Utah

I am in Moab area tagging along at 2 workshops being lead by Andy Biggs.  Andy a good friend and Phase One user asked if I could come to these workshops and let attendees experience Phase One cameras.  This is a shot made at skyline arch today.  I found a number of cool angles and made a few nice images.  You can count on seeing more.  This was shot with a Phase One IQ180 camera and 28mm LS lens.  The detail in the file at 80 MP is astounding.

Moab Differently

3 stitch pano in Arches NP, shot with a Phase One IQ180 and 240mm lens

3 stitch pano in Arches NP, shot with a Phase One IQ180 and 240mm lens

I will be in the Moab area through Friday this week.  I have been to Moab many times and it is a very cool areas for photographers to visit.  Amazing how many are right now.  My goal this trip is to shoot things differently.  Like yesterday I shot everything with a long lens.  The picture above was shot with the NEW 240mm lens from Phase One on a Phase One DF+ camera and IQ180 back.  Absolutely amazing image quality.  I will be shooting all week trying different lenses and or different angles to give me images that others don’t usually shoot or see.  Game on.

The Canadian Rockies

Canadian Rockies

Canadian Rockies

A few months ago I spent some time in the Canadian Rockies shooting and prepping for a fall workshop there.  There is the main highway that runs south to north, then there is the side roads that always offer up surpasses.  This was taken from a side road east of the rockies.

Once again I present another image from  Jökulsárlón, otherwise known as Iceberg Lagoon.  This particular day was very still and the light was right, lots of ice, and I decided to try to capture the size and overall feel.  This took over 14 images shot on a Phase One IQ160 back in vertical and then stitched together in Photoshop.

Iceland Geo Thermal Field

Geo Thermal Field, Iceland

Geo Thermal Field, Iceland

I am getting stoked to go back to Iceland in 5 weeks.  So it’s fun to go through all my previous images and see what I have shot before.  This is one image from one of the many geo thermal fields that can be found in Iceland.  They look very unique.  Too bad you can’t smell how bad they are. Like two million rotten eggs.
