I just love the Olympus OM E1 camera. This is an image made while doing some camera testing in Zion National Park last weekend. This was shot with a 100-300mm zoom Panasonic lens. I have so many nice images from this park.
Two years ago I lead a workshop in Bali. We visited some amazing location and one of these was the Tanah Lot Temple. This temple is joined to the land by a rock and can only be accessed at low tide. Sunsets here are spectacular.
Today is a spring like day. Tomorrow we are supposed to get 3 inches of snow. This is the way I pinch myself so I am ready for the cold again.
Been very busy on a numb rod projects and haven’t done os well this past week keeping up with the posts here. I was once again going through my old images and came upon one I like a lot. This is from a project I am still working on called Rusty Abstracts. Rust and old peeling paint make for some great images.
I just love ice. And, there is not better place than Antarctica to photograph icebergs. This one with the dark sky caught my eye and lens.
There is nothing better than being amongst some amazing icebergs and have a whale sighting. For this image we were cruising in the iceberg graveyard when a humpback surfaces and the image was made even better by the iceberg background. This is what visiting the Antarctica region is all about.
I was going through and doing cataloging of some of my images from the last few years and stumbled upon this one. I have a ton of older images that I have made a vow to get organized. So, this an abandoned school house that sits on a hill and overlooks the ocean. The location is beautiful. If I was a student at this school I would have been day dreaming of big ocean adventures everyday. Guess they abandoned it because none of the students could concentrate on school work.
Who left their donkey behind? Shot near Metztitlan, Mexico. See it on google earth CLICK HERE
I was visiting Mexico recently and my Friend Micahel along with Lars traveled into the heart of Mexico to do some landscape photography. We traveled many back roads and some of these were treacherous. This image was made near Metztitlan, Mexico. I shot it from a hillside as the sun was setting. The low light offered some nice shadows and textures. You can view the location for this shot by CLICKING HERE.
Ok, it’s a sunset. But, it’s a cool sunset. Antarctica has lovely sunsets. They last a long time and have amazing color. This was one shot from the ship after we finished an amazing zodiac cruise through the Iceberg Graveyard. A great way to end what had been a 20 hour day of photography.
I am a rust addict. Ok, I have come clean. There is some attraction to rust that makes e seek it our. Rust has its own story. It is the decay of something that was. I find rust everywhere and love the texture and colors. It’s almost like an abstract. The best rust is in Antarctica and this trip I did a lot of rust shots on Deception Island. You’ll see more posted here. You can always use the tag on the right and click on rust to see all the rusty pictures.
One of the essential places to visit in Antarctica is the Lemaire channel. This is passage that takes about an hour through a narrows and it is just spectacular especially at dawn or sunset. This was a beautiful start to what turned into a 20 hour day of photography on my recent trip to Antarctica.
