One of my favorite cities to visit is Copenhagen. There is so much to like, such as great foo, super friendly people and a unique charm unlike any other city. I absolutely love walking the city and taking pictures. I usually leave a day just for this activity when doing business there. The shot above was made photographing a reflection in one of the canals. You always have tone looking. It’s amazing what is right in front of us.
Sometimes it is fun to shoot parts of things instead of the whole thing. Case in point is the hood of this car. And depending on how you compose it you can have a unique and fun image.
One of the areas of this country I really love is the Palouse in SE Washington State. This an area of rolling hills and farmland with some of the richest soil anywhere. The late spring and early fall are the ideal times to visit this area. This sit just show how a simple picture can be so elegant.
I love blue icebergs. I intend to in the next year publish a book and do an exhibit on ice. I am kind of fascinated by ice and rust. Now that is some polar opposites. This is a northern iceberg. It was photographed on my trip to the arctic circle this past August. The ice in the north is different than in the Antarctic. I all make another trip to the arctic this summer and leave again for Antarctica again in a few weeks. Look for more ice in the near future.
This is a famous church in Iceland. Just about every photographer visiting Iceland has photographed this church. So, I try to find something a little bit different. This was made form a six image stitch using long lens. Phase One IQ180.
Oh how I love Iceland. Every time I visit Iceland I end up with incredible images. This past March I was there and it was still quite winter. I used a long exposure from a cliff to capture the drama of this shot. t works so well in B&W.
Australia is n amazing country. I am blessed to have many friends (mates) there. I usually spend a few weeks a year there photographing. This is form one of my trips and it was shot in one of the many gorges in central Australia. Shot with a Phase One IQ180 and I liked the rock n the foreground, the color of the background with the unique looking tree.
Yes it really did look like this. On one our PODAS workshops to New Zealand we were on top of the mountain overlooking Queenstown and we were blessed with the most amazing light. We saw rainbows, storms and this magnificent display as the sun set and lit up all the clouds. You had to be there.
One of the cool things about cruising American highways is that you stumble upon some of the oddest things. Here is an example that I found on my way driving from Anchorage to Denali NP. Off to the side of the road is this giant looking igloo. It is abandoned and upon further inspection actually was never complete. The story goes they couldn’t get enough water and utilities there to make the spot operate so they just left it. Pretty cool place.
Bryce is one of those small gems of a location. It’s not a large area but it is rich in photographic possibilities. I have come to like Bryce in the November – December time farm with snow if one is so lucky to get snow. I also like shooting with long lenses and capturing only part of the landscape. Best of all s to take a small hime and explore the valley and shoot from different angles. Get off the tourist lookout areas.
