Rainbow In Iceland

Rainbow In Iceland

Rainbow In Iceland

Sometimes magic happens and it often does when in Iceland.  I sometimes think Iceland was created just for photographers as it is one of the most incredible landscapes in the world and I have seen a lot of them.  It was around 10:30 at night and the sun was low on the horizon.  We were shooting this really nice lake with dark stones and solid white patches of snow.  We then looked far off and saw this rainbow forming.  It got larger and larger and brighter too.  I put on my long lens with a polarizer and started shooting.  Finally I backed off on the zoom a bit and got this image that I really like.

Whale On The Beach

FB-whale-on-beach_Panorama1-vivOnce again while exploring Iceland you can find amazing things.  This is a whale skeleton that was washed up on the beach last winter.  Since then the only thing that remains are the bones.  This Skelton lies on the edge of the beach with the magnificent mountains in the background.  This image was made with the Phase One XF Camera and the IQ250 digital back.  I shot 5 images in vertical orientation and then stitched the images together in Photoshop.  I intend to make a 44 x 72 inch print of this image in the next week.  The detail in it is amazing.

Amazing Clouds

fb-Drama-sky-2_Panorama1-vivOn our recent Iceland trip we were on our way to the Highlands and like it happens often in Iceland the weather was changing rapidly.  Weather in Iceland can change in minutes and it is not uncommon that in one day you cane experience everything Iceland has to offer.  So, while we were driving we watched the sky change in front of us.  Weather systems were colliding and as a result the clouds just became incredible looking and it was sight you don’t see often.  This i,age is a stitched image made handheld in a very quick set up.

Cemetery of Punta Arenas

Cemetery of Punta Arenas

Cemetery of Punta Arenas

Cemetery of Punta Arenas, Chile is one of most interesting cemeteries in the world.  We spent a few hours here in February shooting images and it is a photographers paradise.  It has a beautiful yet quiet and soulful feel.  The places has so many different things to see and all the graves are decorated in such unique ways.  I’ll be posting more from this amazing place in the future.

Lupins

Lupins, Punta Arenas, Chile

Lupins, Punta Arenas, Chile

One of my favorite flowers and a flower I run into in almost every corner of the world is a Lupin.  While in Punta Arenas, Chile prior to this years Antarctica trip we came upon a large field of Lupins.  So, we had a fun time shooting and I decided that I needed to do a some post processing technique on the image so it wouldn’t look like just another flower photo.

Iceland Delta

River Delta from the air in Iceland

River Delta from the air in Iceland

On our trip last week to Iceland we chartered a helicopter.  Iceland from the air is a whole other world.  We were able to open the door and the pilot did a great job getting us to the good locations.  I think he has done this before.  One of the things that becomes obvious quickly is the abstract of the landscape.  This is a shot done of a river delta and the muddy waters.  without a reference you wouldn’t know what you were looking at.  Made with the Nikon D800E with a 24-70mm lens at 1600th of a sec.
