Yesterday I posted a dramatic moment in Iceland. They can be that way sometimes there. This image is a bit more typical of Iceland. Made at Vik a black beach, it was done at dusk and the light was gray with a hint or color on the horizon. The beach is very large and there is a nice surf that rushes up onto the stones of the beach. By dragging the shutter I was able to get the magical look to the surf and a hint of movement in the clouds. This is one of those images you need to see as a print.
I enjoy photographing in Olympic National Park a lot. There is so much to shoot there. This image was made at the 2nd Beach location. It’s a short walk through the woods that dumps you onto this wonderful beach. Hang around for sunset and you’ll be treated to something special. This is an image made with a Phase One IQ160 with an ALPA camera. I did one exposure then processed it out at 2 stops over and under plus normal. It was the taken into PhotoMatix and tone mapped. What this does is recover the detail in highlights and shadows and then blends them together. A bit surreal and real at the same time.
The trip Scotland has been so much fun. If you ever travel to Isle Of Skye, bring good boots, waterproof pants and a good waterproof out shell. There are not to many places you can have wind, rain, rainbows and sun all at the same time. You need to be ready for the changing environment. This is a lighthouse that takes a while to reach by car but is really cool to shoot. I decided to turn the image into Black and White as the scene hardly had any color in it. This was shot with the Fuji X-T1 which I was using for the trip to write a story on. In this shot I really like the balance of the sea to the land and the contrast of the shot.
One of the places almost everyone who visits the Antarctica Peninsula visits is the Lemaire Channel. This is narrow channel with huge cliffs and mountains rising from either side. It has never disappointed me on any of my visits. On my last trip I wanted to show the channel in a different way. So, once we were in the middle of the channel I shot 12 exposure while panning the camera from a moving ship. I later stitched these together in Photoshop. This is the result where you can see both openings of the channel. I am presenting a Color and BW version for your viewing pleasure.
Seems I am in a sunset these week. I am in Cornwall and shooting a lot of images in a lot of places. This image was made today at sunset. Spent a good 2 hours shooting this lighthouse with various angles and shutter speeds. This is a good idea of why I am having so much fun here. Shot with an Olympus OMD EM-1.
Posts have been nonexistent over the last few days as internet has been super slow where I was, qw well as being busy from sunrise to sunset with the workshop. Today I head back to Indianapolis and kick into catch up mode. Lots or entries to post, images to work on and articles to finish. I’ll be home for a few weeks before heading off to Photokina. This image above was made a few nights ago at a sunset with a storm on the horizon. The location is one of many I have marked in the Palouse. It was beautiful way to close out a long day. It was a 9 image stitch.
