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.
I 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.
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.
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.
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.
In the Palouse as mentioned in previous posts there are a lot of abandoned trucks and cars, not to mention houses. This shot was made at the Texeco station where the owner collects old trucks. I loves the color, rust and especially the lines of the headlight and truck. So retro, so nice. Shot with a Fuji XT-1.
