I will be posting a lot of rust pictures from Antarctica this is part of a project for a small book I am working on. Hard to believe there is so much rust there. Read about this more under the articles tab.
I had the opportunity this past winter to visit Lofoten, Norway. It’s an amazing place. Almost like a fairy tale. Tall mountains, big skies, and gorgeous coastlines. I won’t lie to you, but it was crowded with photographers. Plus it was hard to photograph there. There aren’t pull offs on the roads and there is no shoulder, just gullies. We saw a lot of people who slid off the road into these gullies.However, if you didn’t mind walking and parking a bit of a hike away you could find locations like the one in the picture above. I did a 35-second exposure for this shot. It blurred the sky and smoothed out the water. While I really loved the location I probably won’t visit there again as the crowds of photographers makes it hard to enjoy.
I love cities for a lot of reasons, especially for all they offer a photographer in subjects that can be photographed. I take walks on the streets early in the morning and shoot people, buildings, light and shadow and even elements like door knobs. I usually work with long lenses. These were taken with a Fuji XT2 and a 100-400 zoom.
I see some cool things and places in my travel. This image reminds me of a secret base in a James Bond movie. It is a water intake facility stuck out on Lake Erie. We took a Buffalo fireboat to get here. It is really a cool place and old. It is the intake for the city’s water supply. I shot this with a wide angle lens. I had lots of fun exploring this structure.
It’s been a few weeks since I posted last. Sorry, I have been a bit underwater with projects and just had no more time in a. day. I have been doing a. good job on catching up and I’m now in a position where I can start this on a more regular basis again. Today’s image was made in Iceland at a classic location. It’s been photographed a million time, but I tried to do something different by making a pano image of the falls and the mountain.
