I can’t get enough of this amazing location. Here is an image of Castle Stalker in Scotland at sunset.
I made my first trip the Dolomites, Italy this year and I will certainly be back. This is a pano image of Alpe Di Diusi. You will be overwhelmed if you visit this location especially when the sun sets and rises. Quite a place.
One thing I loved about Scotland is the castles. They were everywhere. Seems back in the olden days you had to make sure you could defend your home from nasty neighbors. This castle sits on an island and can only e reached by boat at high tide. Otherwise it is just mud at low tide. There was a small road that became visible at low tide leading to the castle. We lucked out though as we photographed here twice and spectacular sunsets each time. The hard part is keeping detail in the castle while not burning out the sky. I’ll teach you how that is done if you attend one of or LuLa workshops.
This is one of those iconic images of Scotland. It’s the famous Black Cottage. There is always a photographer or two there shooting this little cottage. They key is getting it at the right time of say with light and clouds. And, as was the norm for this trip to Scotland everything fell into place on the third try. This is a hrs place to shoot and requires a bit of post processing work to balance foreground and background and make it all look good. I have a large print of this and it is stunning. Shot on a Phase One IQ180 it has amazing detail.
It’s not too often when you see a movie that you expect that you will actually one day photograph something that was in the movie. This image is of the Hogwarts Train shot in Loch Shiel, Scotland. The bridge is known as Glenfinnan Viaduct. This was made with a Phase One IQ180 digital back on an ALPA STC camera. The detail in the large image I have made is astounding.
Zion National PArk is a small park in comparison to some others but a lot of beautiful sights are tucked away inside this unusual location. I thought since fall colors are almost upon us that i would post a fall colors in Zion image. This was made about 2 years ago in the first week on November. The park just turns a beautiful color and no matter where you aim your camera you get a good shot.
While in Svalbard, Norway we visited an old mining outpost. I was in heaven as there was rust galore. If you are a follower of my blog you’ll know how much I love rust. So, here is the first of a number of rusty images from Svalbard. Made with a Phase One IQ180.
While in Salvbard, Norway we landed our zodiacs in an area that used to be an old marble mine. I always love these abandoned areas as I travel around the world. I’ll find rust, decay and all sorts of cools things to shoot that are not necessarily and landscape but in reality are. There were several huts here and this image is the side of one hut with a table. I liked the two mention feel and balance of the table with the window. Shot with a Phase One IQ180.
So, yesterday I published a scene taken at sunset. Here is the same scene with a slightly different angle after the sun went down and the moon came up. This will be the last of this location. Tomorrow we move on to other dolomite locations.
The light and clouds keep blessing u this week. Last night we had another excellent evening with the moon to make for some marvelous images. The PODAS workshop week continues and we are having a blast shooting a lot of different locations. I am too tired to even download images tonight but will try to catch up tomorrow. Hope you enjoy this image.
