I have been in the Palouse the last few days shooting with the new Sony a7r II. What a beautiful camera! This camera will be the camera of the year. It has 42.6 mega pixels and capture gorgeous files and videos. I’ll have more on this on the Luminous-Landscape site when we do our review. This image was made at sunset in a very dry and dusty Palouse. The farmers have had a hard year and the harvest was 4 weeks early due to such dry weather. This shot was made from the highest point in the at sunset and I thinks says very well what the Palouse is like this year.
I am heading to NYC Today and then on Wednesday head to Portland and from there out to the Palouse. In the Palouse I have a favorite location to shoot sunset from and it is the fields and rolling hills behind what I called the Bell House. The owners of this home have passed away but the sons maintain it. Great and really nice people. I made a stack of photos to give them when we visit next week.
Gary being a steel city at one time flourished. It was challenge building homes for all the workers at the mills. Edison had a plan to make concrete homes. This was tried in several cities. Here are the Edison Homes in Gary in complete abandonment and disrepair. These home would have great in hurricane states. Even today the structure is sound just the insides in ruins. I shots these with a Sony 7II and decided to post process to look somewhat apocalyptic.
It has been a little while since I have made a post on my blog and I apologize. I have been extremely busy on many projects. Right now I am in Scotland at Isle Of Skye. This is an amazing place. I am leading a photo workshop here with Steve Gosling and Joe Cornish. We have great group of attendees and even though we have had to deal with the famous Isle Of Skye weather we have been capturing some amazing images like the one above. Once I get back from this trip I’ll post more. I’ll try to post another tomorrow. This image I think almost looks Biblical. Hope you enjoy it. Made with a Phase One IQ160 digital back on an Alpa camera with 72mm lens.
Posts have been nonexistent over the last few days as internet has been super slow where I was, qw well as being busy from sunrise to sunset with the workshop. Today I head back to Indianapolis and kick into catch up mode. Lots or entries to post, images to work on and articles to finish. I’ll be home for a few weeks before heading off to Photokina. This image above was made a few nights ago at a sunset with a storm on the horizon. The location is one of many I have marked in the Palouse. It was beautiful way to close out a long day. It was a 9 image stitch.
Walrus are incredible animals. We hear about these creatures in story books and such. To see these animals up close is a real privilege. We were lucky on one of our encounters with the walrus to have a curious group. They provided many photo opportunities . This shot is of one walrus as he surfaces to check me out. Only a few feet away.
It’s been a week since I visited Silo City in Buffalo, NY. The location provided so many photo opportunities that I have enough good images to share for a few weeks. This is a shot made at Concrete City a location not to far from Silo City. This place is huge and we were there at a great time with great light and great shadows.
