First, my apologies for not posting more photos and posts in general lately. Things have been moving at a fast pace on many fronts and a number of other projects took priority. Things are now getting a bit more manageable and I will try to get these posts back up to being posted on a more regular basis. Today’s photo is me having fun. This was shot on S. Georgia Island as part of our S. Georgia – Antarctica Photo Workshop trip last November. It’s an incredible feeling to be with wildlife and especially penguins in such an amazing environment. I feel truly blessed. Thank you, Debra (my wife) for catching this magic moment. I am so happy you were able to be part of the adventure.
It has been a good year with moments of great sadness and wonderful happiness. Life goes on and sometimes we find strength from our losses and sadness. This was my case this year. I look forward to 2017. I am blessed to have a career I love. A wife I am totally in love with and our kids who we are very proud of and love dearly. This photograph was made by our friend Hans Strand an outstanding photographer from Sweeden who was on our trip to South Georgia Island and Antarctica. I wish all of my readers a happy holiday and a great new year.
One of our highlights on the Iceland trip was visiting an Ice Cave. Not only was the experience of getting to the cave fun but the cave was pretty cool too. We had to use big four-wheeled drive vehicles to get these and then once there get into all sort of gear. The light inside was all blue as the ice filters away all other light, So, here is a photo of the ice cave ceiling and one of me looking like I am straight out of the Blue Man Group.
Ok, it’s no secret I have a real joy for taking photographs and spend just about all my waking days working on something related to my passion. The Luminous-Landscape web site keeps me busy, working on future workshops takes time and writing takes times. So, once in a while I need to go out and do something to relax. There is nothing like Power Washing to satisfy that need and release my tensions. This is a shot of me with my newest man tool – power washer.
I always said I wouldn’t post pictures of flowers, cats and myself. I am a rule breaker. Pixel my cat has now graced the blog a few times and now I am going to grace the pages here. This was shot in the same ice cave as the previous image. I did it as a self portrait. Focused set the time and jumped in the shot. How often will I get a photo of me in an ice cave under a glacier? I rest my point.
