Skittendalen (in english "Dirty Valley") is my favourite place on earth. I will probably devote quite much of my time to shoot this area over the next years. This one is from a trip last october, looking over towards the mountains Rismålstinden (1012m) and Lilletinden (1134m)

Hope you like it...

Have a great day!

The most spectacular sunset I've seen in a couple years unfolded after a cold, rainy and windy day in Patagonia. As tempting as it can be, you can't hole up in bad weather in Patagonia or you will miss the spectacular light. Finding an interesting foreground was difficult in this area, so I went with a standard layered composition and zoomed in on the peaks.

The natural light in Patagonia is extraordinary, probably because of the pristine air quality and the low slanting rays of the southern latitude, especially in the fall. The high altitude sunsets of the Himalaya are the only other place I've seen such vivid colors. The sensor of my 5D Mk II could barely handle the full color spectrum and intensity of this sunset. I actually had to DE-saturate the sky slightly to keep the yellows in check.

After I returned from Scotland I didn't spend enough time editing the shots, and this one in particular was rushed...I was never happy with, so I've gone back and done it again. This has a darker foreground..in the last one it was much brighter which reduced the contrast and drama in the shapes of the landscape and the light, and I've also cropped it a little on the right.

A shot looking east into the rising sun from the Quiraing, Isle of Skye
It's a very very common location, but the place we stayed was 5 minutes driving from here...so what are you going to do? NOT shoot it?

I had wonderful conditions that morning, the sun was mostly obscured, but as the cloud wasn't too heavy, there was still plenty of colour in the sky and breaks in the cloud for sun beams.

From the exact same spot I captured my last submission about 15 minutes later with a telephoto lens.

Had some fun with night shots.

This is a 5 minute shot. Fired the flash a few times from each side with a warming gel.

Had to do some serious noise reduction in the sky.

For those that were wondering, the reason some of the small star trails are segmented, is because (I think) clouds moved in front of the stars for a part of the exposure, thus blocking the light.

I see that I have reached 10k page views. Thanks for all the support :)

Golling from the Creek

I've posted closer shots from this place before and also wanted to show you this lovely place in a wider view.
It took a manual blend of 4 exposures to get the dynamic range here plus an additional exposure with a higher ISO rating to take care of the vividly moving branches on the right.

Geisler Spitzen - Dolomites

After we arrived up here thick fog closed in and we spent the whole evening sitting in front of our tents seeing nothing. I hoped that the fog would clear over night and on the next morning we had this situation.

The Central Coast near Cambria, California at sunset.

I took this on my trip to Cambria a couple weeks ago. It was the only time that I had decent sunset/sunrise color to photograph.
