Rusty Junk

On every trip I make to Svalbard, I make a point to visit a place called Pyramiden.  It’s an abandoned Russian Coal Mine City.  The place is fascinating as it looks like one day they just closed the place and everyone left.  I am working on a book and portfolio of this place.  This image was one of those compositions that caught my eye.  As you may know if you follow my posts I am very big into rust and abandoned things.  The Russians are trying to clean up this place and they are tearing out pipes, wires, and such and all of this has just been left to rust in giant piles.  Look for more from this place in the future.

New Zealand

This image was made on one of my trips to New Zealand a number of years ago.  We had just visited the set of the Hobbit and we drove down the road a ways and came across this beautiful brook.  The falls and water seemed to be coming right out of the woods.  I spent. a bit of time getting this shot right.  It now hangs in my living room as a metal print.

Remembering Tuscany

I miss traveling and by now I  must sound like a broken record.  A few years ago I  visited Tuscany while leading a workshop there with Art Wolfe.  Here are a select few images showing just how colorful Tuscany is.

South Georgia Island

I’m going back and you can come with me.  In November along with Steve Gosling, I am heading back to South Georgia Island and Antarctica.  This is a trip of a lifetime to see a place you wouldn’t believe exists.  The amount of wildlife will astound you.  If you are interested please visit rockhopperworkshops.com and take a look at the South Georgia – Antarctica workshop as well as the others we presently are offering.

A list Ove A Year Way Another South Georgia Island Visit

In just a little over a year, I will hopefully (pandemic depending) be heading to Ushuaia, Argentina to board the Ocean Nova for yet another voyage to the most incredible location on the planet.  Our trip is being hosted by one of my companies Rockhopper Workshops.  It’s a 20-day trip visiting the Falklands, South Georgia, and Antarctica.  It is the ultimate bucket list trip.

The image above was a shot as we approached S. Georgia Island.  This place never disappoints with great light and clouds and is teaming with wildlife.

Punta Arenas Boat

fishing boat

Prior to taking a flight to Antarctica I usually have a few days to explore Punta Arenas.  There’s a lot to explore in this southern Chile city.  Sometimes I’ll take a taxi and hire the driver to take me to various places and wait for me.  This was made along the waterfront and there were a number of fishing boats hauled out of the water and on blocks.  So, I used a wide-angle lens and had some fun.  It’s not an award-winning image but it was fun to shoot. I added the Orton effect to give it a bit of soft focus.

The Dolomites

About ten years ago I found the Dolomites.  I looked at a lot of photos online and these beautiful images of grand mountain vistas were continuing to show up.  So with a bit of investigation I learned about the Dolomites.  I found a photographer that was familiar with the region and had him join us as a leader for the area. The workshop was a success.  I have now made several trips there and plan to do more as well as possibly another workshop in the next year.  These images are just a few that one can expect from this region, otherwise known as the Italian side of the alps.

Dash With Class

One of the things I love doing in the Palouse is exploring and photographing abandoned cars and trucks.  They seem to be everywhere.  It seems they all have their stories.  One day someone parked the vehicle and just left it there never to return.  I like to document the curves and textures as seen in some of my previous posts.  This image today is of an old pickup truck dashboard shot with my Sony 100-400mm lens.  I like using long lenses for images that some wouldn’t think of using a long lens for.  The thing that I love most is peeling p[aint.  I don’t know where this comes from but it is fun to see how time and nature change as well as reclaims things.
