Mighty Midway

The Aircraft Carrier Midway, San Diego, CA

The Aircraft Carrier Midway, San Diego, CA

On my recent trip to San Diego for some business and pleasure I visited the Aircraft Carrier Midway, docked at the downtown wharf.  This has got to be one of the coolest museums you can visit next to the Intrepid in NYC.  This old aircraft carrier has been restored and is open to the public.  What a cool ship.  It was amazing to visit all the spaces and decks and see how sailors lived on this massive ship.  I have a son who just entered the Navy, another son in the Army as well as a daughter in law in the Army and my girlfriend has a son in the Navy.   We are very proud of our country’s military and especially those that serve because we know what these young people go through.  Anyway, back to the carrier.  I was also shooting the Fuji XT-1 during this trip for an upcoming article on Luminous-Landscape and decoded to try out a handheld multi row 23 image stitch image while on deck.  The above shot is a result of that.  The article will explain how it is done.

Scotland – When It’s Nice, It’s Nice

Castle Stalker

There is no place with more finicky weather than Scotland and Ireland.  when it is nasty it is just plain nasty but when it is nice you get the light that dreams are made of.  This was made during a wonderful week of photography in Scotland.  I am leading a workshop there this November with Steve Gosling and Joe Cornish who I consider to be some of the best landscape photographers there is.  Stop on over to Luminous-landscape.com and check the Scotland and other workshops out.

Black Cottage

Black Cottage, Scotland

Black Cottage, Scotland

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.

Been Busy Times

Monument Valley

Monument Valley

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.

Too Surreal

Rooster and The Old Town

Rooster and The Old Town

Yesterday I was doing  video shoot comparing two new cameras for Luminous-landscape.  The shoot went well and we compared the two hot cameras today, the fuji X-T1 and the Olympus O-EM1.  On the easy back for an amazing shoot in Zion National Park we stumbled upon what could be best described as a tourist trap.  It was all roped of and obviously closed for the season.  However that didn’t stop me from shooting from the road and parking lot.  I was setting up the shot and just like that a rooster appeared in the frame at the exact correct position.  I did the shot and thanked the rooster.  Seem the rooster has done this before.

Been very busy on a numb rod projects and haven’t done os well this past week keeping up with the posts here.  I was once again going through my old images and came upon one I like a lot.  This is from a project I am still working on called Rusty Abstracts.  Rust and old peeling paint make for some great images.
