The other day I posted an image of Murant’s Curve in the Canadian Rockies going north. Today is the south bound train. Must be fun to drive a train through such beautiful wilderness.
In the Canadian Rockies there is a lot to photograph. One of the iconic places is this location called Morant’s Curve. Railroad tracks run north to south and you can catch the trains going both directions. Todays image is of a northbound train. You can see this magnificent landscape and smell the diesel and hear the noise. Pretty cool place to do train watching.
Now I have no reason why they call this the Black Cottage but it is one of the more photographed locations in Scotland. I did this shot while leading a Scotland workshop two years ago. Visited this spot a couple of times and each time was different weather and light. I’ll be doing another Scotland workshop this Auguts. Visit luminous-landscape.com for more information.
Here’s another Monument Valley image made with the Olympus OMD 5. This image as wells hundreds of my images will be available for sale at special prices at the Gallery Open house at the Stutz Building April 25 and 26, 2014. Watch my blog for more information.
Wow, it’s been a little bit of time since I have had a chance to post on the blog. Sorry about that. A lot of things going on and other things had taken priorities. All good stuff, just been very busy. So let’s get caught up.
Todays image is part of a fun series I did in Monument Valley a while back when testing the Olympus OMD 5. I used art more and selected a variety of setting to make artsy BWs and Color images in addition to the standard RAWS. This is a BW of Monument Valley. One of the really pretty spots to visit in this country.
Everyone loves shooting the slot canyons in and near Page, AZ. Me included, yet I always try to see these magnificent locations differently. I shoot tight, and I look up a lot. I also think square. I have managed to get what I consider some unique images of the canyons. This one is not that unique but it is a nice looking tight shot Canyon X. Shot with an Olympus OMD.
While my friend Steve Gosling and I toured the Isle Of Skye area in Scotland we came upon a small visiting pier and village. we both went off in different directions. This one shot I made of a boat on the beck. It looked best cropped square (thanks Steve). Shot with an Olympus OMD 5.
So, as you can see I have been working on my Scotland images this past week. I’ll be doing another trip to Scotland in the fall of 2014 to lead a workshop to Skye. This was actually shot in Scotland and is of a side of a fishing shack that my friend Steve Gosling and I stumbled upon. There was peeling paint, moss, and rust. All the ingredients that I need to satisfy my photographic desires. Sometimes something simple like this just works.
Well I am off on another adventure. This time I’ll be starting in Salvbard, Norway and shooting landscapes, wildlife and hopefully Polar Bears.
This adventure Starts on August 22nd and I’ll be back home September 5th. For the most part I’ll be out of Internet coverage and cell phone coverage, Most likely I’ll have email, cell phone withdrawal issues and hopefully this can be treated with some good therapy on board the shipI’ll be on. I should come back with lots of good photos. A few days after my return I head to the italian side of the Swiss Alps for the Dolomites PODAS workshop. Should have internet there though so I should be able to post images.
Stay Tuned for more. I’ll soon be announcing a whole series of Photo Workshops around the world in 2014.
On my trip to Scotland a year ago I shot many great landscapes. I also with my friend Steve Gosling found a fisherman’s storage shed. It was a work of art and we spent a lot of time shooting it. This was from the side of building and is kind of an abstract of one of my favorite subjects RUST. You’ll see more from this series soon.
It’s kind of a touristy trap place, but if you can get the people out of the picture it is a beautiful castle to take a picture of. Seems Scotland just has an abundance of castles This one is exceptional and built on an island like so many other Scottish castles. I have more of this castle and others I’ll be publishing over the coming weeks. This was made with the Olympus OMD 5.
