Inspired by the music of Dead Can Dance . Within the realm of a Dying Sun


This is a view from Iceland' Inner track , quite far from any source of life , .. while we were crossing back the island towards Reykjavik. I really enjoyed the new September snow on these overwhelming mountains afar.

I've used a 200 mm zoom with 2 Lee ND graduated filter . And then process the image by adding some partial contrasts.

Hello

To appreciate the image, I advise you a bigger vision just here :
[link]

This mesmerizing landscape was ...
One of the most striking vision from our latest Iceland ethereal journey .. We were crossing the island to reach the North... A new world for me , I've never been there before.

The arrival of autumn offered us a dark brown moss mixed with black ashes ... A vast, desolate landscape,

At this this moment the land was sweeped with snow and the mountains afar ... drenched with a pale light.

The vision was .... kind of .. coming out from a dream .. the shapes of the mountains were blurred by a veil of pouring snow ..

I enjoyed the double framing of the picture ... focusing on the progression from dark to light ..


Stitched Panorama including 3 images.

From our latest workshop in the Alps. this view was done with 200 mm .. and slightly de saturated , with warm white balance .. giving the impression of an ominous gate towards another world . I've croped it Square and slightly darkened the scene.

I'm still not sure about this one .. Difficult to choose between cold and warm white balance . there was the sun , with a halo and the ice on the beach , I've remove a bit of saturation as well . I'm curious about your opinion ..

This is the beach at Jokulsarlon . Iceland
I'm tried different exposure time to get the water coming towards me like this .. And just after this shot .. My lense 70-200 F4 L IS fell in the sea .. because of a big wave coming .. hmhm ..

Hello

This is a picture from our last Iceland trip in September.
The light was subtle and lateral almost the whole day .. And the Skaftafell area unveils a crazy land ( floor ? ground ? ) with all the mixed colors .

I have combined different graduated ND filters to achieve this rendering , with a Raw & PS treatment .. It was a hard light to expose ... but now It seems OK.

It's intersting to watch it in a big size ... the sensation of freedom, immensity was overwhelming ...

a really inspiring place
track F210 towards Alftavatn !

I'm just back from our last workshop in the 'nevache valley' ( 05 ) hautes alpes / France

Snow was already here, everywhere .. And we had luck with this strange cloud , creating an interesting answer to this curve in the snow .

This is the "Mont-Blanc" , Chamonix , France . 4810 m

This is always ..quite .. stunning , to see all these shapes of snow and rocks ... It was shot during the evening light after a passing storm.
