Waterfalls

One Of The Many Waterfalls Iceland Has To Offer

Iceland is a magical land with so much beauty, that as a photographer it’s hard not to take fantastic images.  There are mountains, valleys, seascapes, glaciers, icebergs and the list goes on.  What I like is waterfalls.  There are hundreds and they are a lot of fun to photograph.  There are waterfalls that will astound in you size and the amount of water flowing over them.  This waterfall is one I found driving around Iceland and I stop by it each and every time I’m there.  I have done panos here, had rain, snow and blue sky.  This image is one I like because it has what I call the Iceland Sky.  Gray and foreboding.  I shot this at a 10th of a second and with a Phase One 28mm lens.  Had to go to real low ISO as well as F/22 to get a slow enough shutter to blur the water.  Because of the curved element of the lens I couldn’t use a ND filter. I have shot this at longer shutter speeds where the water really blurs and higher where it is frozen.  This shutter speed is just right.

I am running a workshop in Iceland next June going places other photo workshops don’t go.  If you want a real treat and some incredible images join us.  I’ll be doing this workshop with Daniel Bergmann my friend and one of the best landscape photographers I know.  Check it out at The Rockhopper Workshops Page.

Just Having Some Fun

Run, run, run, fun . . . Cornwall, UK

Run, run, run, fun . . . Cornwall, UK

I love animals.  They have not a care in the world.  They are here to share their love with us and to show us how to have fun.  This photo should say it all.  There is one way to live and that is full steam ahead.  I shot a ton of images of these two dogs playing.  Just like I shot a ton of the Arctic foxes playing this past summer in Svalbard.  No matter where you go you will see animals having a good time.  I guess I’ll have to pick up a stick and run a little and see who wants to chase me.

Sitting By The Dock Of The Bay

I still have a lot of nice images to share from my week in Cornwall, UK.  Today’s image was made in Charleston Harbour in Cornwall.  I made it with the Olympus OMD E-M1.  I used art mode for BW that allowed me to shoot RAW as well as have a JPEG in BW as shown.  This makes using the camera a lot of fun.  I saw these guys sitting on the bench and just had to make a photo of them.  Black and White makes the image really nice.

Castle Walk

Castle Walk, St. Michaels, UK

Castle Walk, St. Michaels, UK

While in Cornwall, UK last week I saw many cool sites as well as many castles.  This castle is St. Michael’s Mount in the village of Marazion.  At low tide you can walk and drive out the island.  At hight tide you need to take a boat.  Pretty cool and medieval.
