The light was incredible.  Isle Of Skye, Scotland

The light was incredible. Isle Of Skye, Scotland

What a great week in Scotland.  Sorry there haven’t been more posts but the internet was so slow there was no way to post anything.  I’m in Amsterdam now doing an overnight before heading back to the US.  Scotland through everything it had at us from wind and rain to blue skies and sun.  This is the second of my biblical images I made on the trip.  Done with an ALPA And Phase One IQ260.  The light was unreal.  We had rainbows too.  I’ll post those shots in the coming days.  For now please enjoy this.

Chapel On The Hill

There is no questions the Tuscany landscape is a photographers dream. As good as it is though it is a challenge to shoot as so much of the landscape is far away and there is little foreground subjects to aid in composition. So, when shooting you need to look at things different. In this case I let the sky be dominant and it then draws you to the subject matter which id the chapel on the hill as some otto the other buildings. I also let the clouds above the chapel anchor the eye to the bottom 1/3⅓ f the image. Shot with a Phase One IQ260 and 240mm lens.

Barrel Room

Barrel Room, Abandoned Farm House, Tuscany, Italy

While shooting a sunrise in Tuscany we stumbled onto an abandoned farm house.  It was wonderful exploring it and I did come out with some nice images.  This is an image of a room where I believe barrels were made.  It was just about complete darkness.  I used a Phase One IQ260 that is great for long exposures.  the exposure was a long one and yielded a surreal image.  I hope you like it.

Chapel

Near as I can figure and from what I have been told, many Italian families with large properties in Tuscany built their own family chapels.  You can find these dotting the landscape all over Italy.  This one chapel I came back to time and time again as it could be shot at different times of days and from far away or close-up.  This one shot from the field in front of the chapel.  The field was all yellow and I decided to use this as an extreme foreground and position the chapel in the upper right.  I think it works.

Cloudy, Cold and Foggy

Foggy Cold Morning In Tuscany

Foggy Cold Morning In Tuscany

Sometimes sunrises don’t have sun.  They still offer a chance to shoot some nice images as in this image.  We made it to the top of an overlook hill.  We could see two different valleys.  Fog was rolling in and changing the scene every few minutes allowing for a lot of picture taking.  After viewing the images I selected this one as one that works well.  Hope you enjoy it.

Sunset Again In Tuscany

Sunset With Houses. Tuscany, Italy

Sunset With Houses. Tuscany, Italy

Tuscany landscapes have building in them.  Stone elegant buildings.  You actually figure  ways to use these building in your images.  This is a shot done at sunset where the buildings do a lot to make the image.  All I can say are the sunsets are so colorful and the light just begs to be photographed.  I shot this with a Phase One IQ260 that has a lot of dynamic range capability and allowed me to keep detail in highlights and shadows.  It would have been hard to make this shot with a DSLR camera.
