Waterfalls

One Of The Many Waterfalls Iceland Has To Offer

Iceland is a magical land with so much beauty, that as a photographer it’s hard not to take fantastic images.  There are mountains, valleys, seascapes, glaciers, icebergs and the list goes on.  What I like is waterfalls.  There are hundreds and they are a lot of fun to photograph.  There are waterfalls that will astound in you size and the amount of water flowing over them.  This waterfall is one I found driving around Iceland and I stop by it each and every time I’m there.  I have done panos here, had rain, snow and blue sky.  This image is one I like because it has what I call the Iceland Sky.  Gray and foreboding.  I shot this at a 10th of a second and with a Phase One 28mm lens.  Had to go to real low ISO as well as F/22 to get a slow enough shutter to blur the water.  Because of the curved element of the lens I couldn’t use a ND filter. I have shot this at longer shutter speeds where the water really blurs and higher where it is frozen.  This shutter speed is just right.

I am running a workshop in Iceland next June going places other photo workshops don’t go.  If you want a real treat and some incredible images join us.  I’ll be doing this workshop with Daniel Bergmann my friend and one of the best landscape photographers I know.  Check it out at The Rockhopper Workshops Page.

The Great Ice Wall

Icewall, Brasvellbreen, Svalbard

Icewall, Brasvellbreen, Svalbard

On both of our trips in the recent Svalabrd workshop we visited the Ice Wall of Brasvellbreen.  It is hard to describe this location.  It is not a Glacier but an ice cap and one of the largest in the world depending on who you ask.  The bottom line is it is hundreds of kilometers long and has hundreds of cascading waterfalls and textures.  We were fortunate to arrive at this location with the sun sweeping over the face of the ice wall.  And this was around midnight.  at this time of year there is 24 hours of light in the Arctic.  I’ll have more images of this amazing ice wall in the near future.

I am in Buffalo with Michael Reichmann shooting abandoned grain elevators for the next few days.  The places we will be shooting are amazing and I am looking forward to a very productive few days of great photography.  Today before arriving in Buffalo I had to stop offend try some new Lee Filters.  This image was made with the Lee Seven 5 filter system with a big stopper filter.  This is a 28 second exposure.

New Zealand Waterfall

One of the most magical and photographic places I can think of is New Zealand.  I love NZ and it’s no wonder the Hobit is filmed here.  There are some of the coolest places anywhere to shoot pictures.  This one is one of my favorites.  It’s about an hours drive from Queenstown.
