I’m Back, So Here We Go

Sunrise At The Iceberg Lagoon, Iceland

Sunrise At The Iceberg Lagoon, Iceland

I must apologize.  No excuses, but I was super busy for the last few months on Luminous-LAndscape business.  I literally was running out of hours in a day.  So, I am now back and will do my best to get back to the routine of an image a day.   Please accept my apologies for the long absence.

I’ll kick off the new images with a shot from last week when I was in Iceland leading  workshop.  It was a great workshop with some great people.  The light lasted 24 hours a day and it was non-stop photography.  One morning we woke up and it was grey and cloudy but none the less we headed to the Iceberg Lagoon to shoot sunrise.  As it is with Iceland weather the whole grey sky changed in the 10 minute drive there.  The clouds started to part and beautiful gold sun started to peak through.  This is the shot of an iceberg with the sun common up.  Oh my do I love Iceland.  Made with a Nikon D800e and a 70-200mm lens.

Power Dam

Hydro Electric Dam In New Zealand

Hydro Electric Dam In New Zealand

This image was made in New Zealand.  We were driving to a landscape location and I saw this dam and we turned around to shoot it.  I like the geometry and industrial feel.  It’s fun to try something different.  Sharp angles and lines make for interesting images.  Black and white was the way to go.

Tree

Tree NZI have been spending what little spare time I have organizing my photos from the last few years.  It’s a mammoth task and one I say I will stay on top of from now on.  Here’s to hoping I do.  This is an image I found shot 2 years ago in New Zealand.  This a tree that is photographed a lot.  I guess because it sits out in this filed and a small pond by itself.  Once again I saw it in B&W.

Boats

Boats - Cornwall, UK

Boats – Cornwall, UK

While traveling in Cornwall, UK a few months ago I was trying out and doing a lot of testing with the Olympus OMD E-M1 camera.  At one point we were crossing a river on a ferry and I saw these anchored ships and sailboat.  I thought it would be interesting to shoot with a long lens compressing the background in the shot.  It looked in the end best in Black and White.

Aqua Towers – Chicago, Take 1

Aqua Towers, Chicago

Aqua Towers, Chicago

I love Chicago.  It’s one city I never get tired of shooting in.  The architecture is second to none and offers the urban landscape photographer so many possibilities.  This image was made right after sunrise of the Aqua Towers.  This is a giant condo building that is designed to look like a wave.  The trick is to use a long lens, expose for the highlights and shoot the building in high contrast with am abstract look.  I shot this with a Fuji X-t1 and 55-200mm lens.

One of the places almost everyone who visits the Antarctica Peninsula visits is the Lemaire Channel.  This is narrow channel with huge cliffs and mountains rising from either side.  It has never disappointed me on any of my visits.  On my last trip I wanted to show the channel in a different way.  So, once we were in the middle of the channel I shot 12 exposure while panning the camera from a moving ship.  I later stitched these together in Photoshop.  This is the result where you can see both openings of the channel.  I am presenting a Color and BW version for your viewing pleasure.

Gold and Browns

The Golds And Browns Of The Palouse

The Golds And Browns Of The Palouse

Where on earth can you find colors like these.  The Palouse is like the color chip rack of a paint store. The is a classic example of the natural beauty in the Palouse during the harvest.  Freshly plowed fields next to fields that have just been harvested.  And, for a real treat you should see this place in the spring time.
