The South West and South East of Western Australia would be one of my favorite places to photograph . The variety of landscapes from rugged coast , peaceful bays , regional farms , rolling hills to Mountain ranges , vine yards , forest and many more . Would love to live down this area for a year just to take more photographs of the place its really amazing . I found this old image taken in 2009 at Sunrise in Esperance . Was one of the more difficult shots to take with the such exposure difference from each shot and the sky and ground , plus trying to get the water movement similar on each shot .
Was taken with Canon 5D MKII 24-70mm f2.8 USM L Lens and Lee Filters . Was a 7 image stitch .
Focal Length : 70m ISO : 50 F : 16 S : 1.6s
Will have some wallpapers of this shot in various sizes up on my blog later . [link]

This was one of the strangest displays of light. During the magic hour the mountains were completely shrouded in clouds and there was no chance of any color that evening, or so I thought. After I had taken some exposures and it had gotten very dark I packed up my camera and tripod and started to walk back to camp. All of a sudden I looked backed and noticed the clouds starting to lift and a really strange glow hitting the underside of the clouds. I quickly ran back to the creek and tried to recompose in almost complete darkness. Was able to capture this strange light which disappeared second after this was taken.
Kirkjufell is one of 'the' landmarks in Iceland that photographers rightfully flock to. It is a conical shaped mountain on the Snaefellsnes Peninsula on the far west of the country. The nearest town of Grundarfjordur is a beautiful town set in a bay. A few kilometres away lies this mountain with a beautiful small waterfall nearby that tends to dominate compositions of images taken with this mountain. The weather was not kind to us on both of our visits to the area, however, on the last evening in the area, the skies cleared beautifully to provide us the opportunity for this image.
A shot from early this month...and as always..please view large
After struggling through kneedeep fresh snow for quite some time i reached this partially open river. This was a particular composition i had been trying to shoot for several months, but the conditions have never been the way i`ve visioned it in my head. This time everything fell into place...
After shooting this one i struggled for another hour to get to another previsualized spot, just to find out it was useless...So i went back to this spot, followed the river downstream and witnessed an intense aurorashow. Managed to get a good one of the show...
I`ve also put up a blog. Something i never thought i would do, but i figured it would be a practical place to post longer stories and info about my photographic expeditions. Feel free to visit: [link]
Have a wonderful day all you great shooters!
Exif: canon 5d & 17-40mmL 80 sec (covered the sky for the majority of the exposure) f4 17mm iso 1600
