Lake Mackenzie
New Zealand

First of all, sorry for the lack of posting but Marianne, Charlotte and I were busy preparing and then finally enjoying our trip in New Zealand from which we just returned. About this shot.....

The location is 13km into the Routeburn track from the Divide in Fiordland National Park. The conditions when I started the trek could only be described as wet.......pouring rain, small rivers became streams to splash across along the trail, little visibility, a roaring 174m waterfall (Earland falls) requiring a detour at its base. All of us who arrived at the Lake Mackenzie hut that evening were sodden through despite our waterproof gear. As such, it was hard to get the motivation to sit lakeside at sunset, but the rain had stopped as we arrived so a little hope turned into smiles as this scene evolved over the still green waters of the lake. A moment to savour ! ps. Charlotte and Marianne were down in Milford sound enjoying similarly spectacular conditions!

The work of life and wind in the Patagonian pampa, near Torres del Paine. One thing that amazed me during my trip to Patagonia was these wide landscape with no or few human presence for miles...
The evening when I took this picture was particularly quiet and peacefull. This image depict the idea I had of patagonia.

This is an image taken during my last photography workshop in Iceland, june 2012. Here is a block of ice from the Vatnajökull icefield, deposed on the black sand beach of Jökulsarlon by the North Atlantic Ocean.
It was about 1am, during the infinite night glow of summer.

The frozen lagoon in front of Breiðamerkurjökull glacier was an amazing place to visit. Endless fields of blue icebergs, some as big as a house, assumed countless forms and triggered everyone's imagination. The soft morning sun colored the mountaintops red, to complement the scene.

If you wish to experience and shoot this magical place, among many other incredible sceneries, you're welcome to join my upcoming 'Land of Ice' Iceland winter workshop taking place January 2013.

This image was taken on the second morning of our trip down the Mid North Coast to Forster. Unfortunately the conditions for this trip weren't as I hoped, but I managed to capture this stunning burst of sunrise colour. This is a 200 second exposure just as the sun kissed the horizon and rose above the clouds. I think this is probably the best shot from the trip. Fingers crossed next visit will reward me with more surreal conditions like this.

Story :

Here we are in Torres del Paine, Chile.

Another place a bit too visited, but you soon realize why, when you get to face the mountains.

On this hill, we were in a very pleasant camp, rather deserted in this middle of autumn, and ideally placed in front of the mountains, near the shore of Lake Pehoe, full of islets and with its turquoise colour...
Some rest for us after our travels in Argentina, toward Fitz Roy. We spent a few days there, hoping the conditions would be inspiring.

As soon as the first day here, I get my photo tripod stolen, within what little time I had left it in a corner... It seems crazy, but it's true. Manfrotto 190cxpro4 tripod, $500. I've still got a couple weeks to spend here, and I have a half- broken zoom, struck between F/11 and F/16, and no tripod. Uneasy. Given that I'm mostly here to take pictures. And I do love working on movements and night.

While looking for someone in the camp who could have found it, I find a big dome with scores of crazy equipment inside it, tripods (not mine, rather some monsters with the head of the tripod big as my skull)... I wonder what it is... It was the BBC ( ! ) doing a report on the puma. For me, they are a bit the gods of the impressive nature movie (Frozen planet, Planet earth... etc)...
Well, of course, I didn't dare chatting too much, I just said "Wow, impressive" or some stupid thing of this kind, and I left...

So no tripod.
For this image, Mathieu gave me his and I could quickly take about twenty shots but his awkward tripod head was hardly able to stabilize itself, and with the wind I had to be constantly holding the whole stuff during the five or ten seconds of the attempt. Many lack accuracy, even this one, there is no real detail. But in a way it contributes to a kind of broad rendering...

Yet, after a while I decided to choose this one, because there is this crack in the sky. We feel the clouds moving laterally, but there is this opening which, in the sky in fire, gives a bigger dimension to the frame. Always the same, we are more aware of that when standing "far" from it...
There is also this shadow, on the left face, which slowly moves toward the lateral brightness.

It was during the sunrise, one of the most beautiful of our adventure.

What we see on the left, vaguely taken within the clouds with that shadow on the rock, these are the "Cuernos" (strange name) and strange shape too ! It reminded us of some sort of cake with an upper part of chocolate going in all directions... The smooth and golden rock down, then a visible crack and a quite different rock. The top is 2600m high.

First, I like to observe and realize what it does to me... It takes some time... And then comes a moment when I want to get closer, find details, turn around it...

That's what we did ; in the next days we will go trekking again for a few days in the inner valleys which rush down in this incomprehensible heap.

I will soon show you what we found there...

Oh...
I am pretty likely to organize a photo trip around those mountains and forests in Chile. I am thinking about a project for two weeks at the same period. Beginning, middle of April, 2013. It would mix trekking in the inner valleys and the wild autumnal forests, as well as other more remote points for this type of views, for instance... You can already contact me to tell if you are interested.

Summoning. Land of the dead. Truly epic, and it gave us the feeling of climbing up new broad and unknown areas...

A magical night of Aurora over the glacier lagoon started with a dazzling display of green and red columns. To understand the scale of things, notice the coffee shop on the right.

Hello!

This is a picture of the night of the 5th march 2011... A night spent under the stars on the summit of the Brevent in the Chamonix valley in french Alps...
We were front of the Mont Blanc, the highest summit of the Alps, an amazing scenery.
The mountains remains enlighted by the lights of the town in the valley, giving a really particular athmosphere.
The sky was amazingly clear, only the summit of the Mont Blanc was clouds covered.

A great remember
