Once again I share an image made at the Indiana Transportation Museum. This is a fun place to shoot at and I am there often. This is a shot of one of the train cars in the yard. I Raberized it a bit in Capture One. I also used the perspective tool in Capture One to correct the view so it looked straight.
Outside of Moab are two excellent National Parks. One of these is Arches National Park. This is an amazing park with a road that winds through some incredible sites. Dawn and dusk are the best times to shoot here and if the wether is good you will come away with some terrific images. This location is known as Skyline arch. The tree in the image is no longer there . It worked so beautifully in this image as a foreground. There are a lot of ways this particular arch can be photographed.
Not too far outside of Moab there are a number of great locations to make great images. This image was made from the state park there. A lot of beautiful images can be made here. They key is making them work. This one works because the tree plays off the curves of the canyon. Kind of an organic and inorganic thing.
Tuscany offers so much more than just rolling majestic landscapes. This image was made in a small barnyard. This latch must have been around for 100 or more years. It tells its own story. What story does it tell you?
This is an image made deeper into the Icelandic countryside after a climb up a hill. This is a geothermal field where steam just bubbles out of the ground. You can find these all over Iceland. This image doesn’t give a hint on how bad it smells. A very heavy sulfa smell. Es it looks nice against a sunset. Made with a Phase One P65+.
I have always loved this image. A few years ago I was in Iceland and scouting out locations with Daniel Bergman. We traveled to all sorts of cool places and covered a lot of ground. However as usual a number r of my best images came from Jokulsarlon. This is a giant lagoon where glaciers all meet these in turn have ice that brakEs off otherwise known as calving. The light that night was so good. The day really never ended. We had like a three hour sunset that merged into a sunrise. There is a point where these icebergs flow out of the lagoon and to the ocean. The ocean then deposits them on the beach which is another great spot for excellent images. The lagoon got clogged at the point where these icebergs flow out and they created a dam of sorts. Water backed up and then ran over these form their own sets of rapids. I got right up to the spot with a wide angle lens on my Phase One and managed to get these shots. This is one of my favorite.
I can’t get enough of Iceland and especially a spot known as the iceberg lagoon Jokulsarlon. This is one of the most visited areas in Iceland not to mention photographed, so finding unique images is hard. I have found a few though and this is one. I places the ice at the top of the images and let the water and a chunk of black ice carry your eye to the horizon.
I have been to Iceland many times and it is one the best places in the world for a landscape photographer to visit. Just about everywhere you look there is incredible scenes begging to be photographed. I was with my friend and Iceland guide Daniel Bergman when we were leaving one such place. This is the result of stopping and taking that one last shot.
Glacier National Park has had in its past some major forrest fires that have devastated many thousands of acres. As you drive though the park you’ll find many of these areas. This is an image made showing how the forrest is re-establishing itself. Made with a Phase One Iq180 and 150mm lens.
Sometimes simple just work as this image does. This was made in the Tuscany region in a small village. The village was very quaint and unique. Clean, windy streets with cats on the door step and kids running around playing. The homes were lovely as shown in this image.
