I am always looking for the picture in the picture. This is a photo of an old beached boat on a beach in Svalbard. What I like to od is shoot the picture of the larger subject (the boat) itself then go in close and start to look for new compositions. Sometimes I use a long lens like the 100-400nn lens. In this shot, I saw the bow of the ship as it’s own abstract photo. I moved back a bit and zoomed in with the telephoto lens to compress the image a bit. Then I shot it. At first, if you see the images you might not know what it is. This forces the viewer to stop for a minute to figure it out. Some people may not even figure it out. I like this subject as it has a lot of things I like, such as rust and peeling paint. Enjoy.
I’m in Punta Arenas now (Jan. 31st) getting ready to fly out to Antarctica for a trip going south of the polar circle. It’s a great trip and one always full of surprises. while in Punta Arenas I like to vsit two different areas, the water front and the grave yard. This was done on the waterfron abouta. mile outside of town. This ship must have grounded itself there many years ago as each time I come here it is still here.
I shot this iamge from the top of the hill with a long lens to get a tight shot. I love shooting tight and seeing the world in a different perspective.
I have been playing wit this image for a while. This a shot of a ship that was wrecked or beached in Svalbard, Norway. It has all the things I like, decay and rust in a beautiful setting. I shot it at the angle I did to utilize the lines of the boat in the composition. This was made with a Nikon d*00e and a 24-70mm lens.
