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.
I am now in Oslo, Norway about to start the second leg of my journey back to home to Indianapolis. I have been away for 3 weeks and 16 of those days have been at sea leading two amazing photo workshops in the Arctic region of Svlabard, Norway. This was my second trip to Svalbard and it won’t be my last. I got to share this trip with some amazing people and take so many amazing images. We have polar bear pictures and one of them was on a kill. Walrus and Arctic fox. We shot an Ice Wall that is 100’s of kilometers longs with ware falls at just the right light. We shot a bird cliff where I have never seen so many birds. So, over the coming weeks you’ll find a ton of images here on a daily basis, plus give em a few weeks and I’ll have a trip log of this trip. I am home for a few weeks before leading a workshop in the Palouse. So, let’s start out with a classic Iceberg shot. Funny to all dressed up in winter gear in July.
At Luminous-Landscape we just announce a new workshop to explore the Kimberley region of Australia on the Tue North, a magnificent yacht with a a helicopter. We also just release a VIDEO of this amazing location and previous trip. Check out the links. And, please consider joining us for a great adventure.
A few weeks ago I was in Zion National Park shooting images that will be used in an upcoming video article on the Olympus EM1 and the Fuji XT1. This is the classic shot for Zion. Every National PArk has a spot like this. At sunset you can’t even get a spot on the bridge where this was taken as there are usually dozens of photographers. In any case I had fun shooting this and working the image to what I present here.
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.
Two years ago I lead a workshop in Bali. We visited some amazing location and one of these was the Tanah Lot Temple. This temple is joined to the land by a rock and can only be accessed at low tide. Sunsets here are spectacular.
I was visiting Mexico recently and my Friend Micahel along with Lars traveled into the heart of Mexico to do some landscape photography. We traveled many back roads and some of these were treacherous. This image was made near Metztitlan, Mexico. I shot it from a hillside as the sun was setting. The low light offered some nice shadows and textures. You can view the location for this shot by CLICKING HERE.
