Featured as Earth Shot's Photo of the Day on 7/2/09 ([link]) as well as Photo of the Day on Aperture Academy on 7/9/09 ([link])

This was one of the hardest 1.5 mile hikes I've ever made. You start from the lake down there and hike up this steep, crumbly mountain until you get to this ridge. I damn near killed myself stepping on unstable rocks over and over.

I loved the view here and set up for sunset. It took me about an hour to find a spot and composition I really liked. I really liked this shot more than later ones I took from the same spot, because the sun is falling scross those trees in the front and adds a lot the depth of the image by having a nice middleground subject. Later, those trees were dark and it didn't seem as strong of an image.

A mounted print of this shot can be purchased at my Etsy store for only $20 - [link]

Sunset at Bandon Beach in Oregon. Me and my photographer buddy Brian Rueb stayed at the fabulous Sunset Motel (how fitting!) right by the beach here, for 1 night on the way up to our workshop in Lincoln City. This was one of the earlier shots from sunset, but the clouds got sucked away by the marine layer as the sun got lower, and I really dug this sky and the way the sun showed through the giant monoliths of rock. It was my first time here and it did NOT disappoint.

Couta Rocks
Tasmania

On the North west cost of Tasmania, the coast faces the roaring forties of the southern ocean to the west and the dunes of the Tarkine coast inland. The rugged land came to life on this particular evening when a blue sky day met with fast moving cloud. One of the most striking sunsets I've seen.

Landmannalaugar
Iceland

This has to be one of the most remarkable locations I have visited even if the weather was not as good as it could have been. Located in the interior of Iceland, we arrived there by 4WD bus from Reykjavik and spent one night there before setting off on the beautiful laugavegur hike. The long days meant long twilights which made photography even more satisfying at the ends of the day. This was dawn on the second day after I had slipped on those rocks giving me wet feet for the rest of the day's hiking.

Hallett Cove
South Australia

A merry christmas to everyone reading this :)
Since coming back from holidays at the start of November, I've been trying to edit the 3 months worth of images. Last weekend was the first time I headed out to the coast to take some pictures. It was a grey kind of day but all week there had been some rays shining around sunset time. I headed to a familiar location as an 'easy' starting point since I know the area very well by now. One of the pleasure of photographing the adelaide coast in bad weather is that you have all the time in the world by yourself to appreciate the beauty while everyone else is probably rugged up inside. It was that kind of a day and a great one to get back into shooting locally again.

The Photo

Old shot taken at Praia do Guincho in April 2008. I haven't been doing much landscape work over the last 4 months, so here's an old waterscape from last year to keep my gallery ticking over.

As summer passes I'm hoping to get out and shoot more land/waterscape photos...it's really been too long and I can't wait to get back into it.

You'll know where the title comes from if you were an angst-ridden teenager in 80s Britain. Classic song [link]

The Photo

One of the first photography books I ever bought, and one that had a huge influence on my landscape photography, was Joe Cornish's "First Light". It's still one of my favourite books, and one I regularly flick through for inspiration.

On the cover of that book is a magical beach, rocks in a raging sea with harsh mountain peaks rising out of the water across the bay. I've wanted to visit the place pretty much since I first bought the book.

So when I was in Skye for 3 days recently, making the long trip around the south east of the island to get to Elgol ("Ealaghol" in the local Gaelic) beach was pretty high up on the list of things I wanted to do. It's a long trek to get there (especially considering we were staying in the northern most part of the island) but the journey is beautiful, and Elgol, with it's views across the water of the Cuillin mountains, is absolutely stunning.

Of course, I'd hoped for a beautiful blast from the last rays of the sun to pick out the mountain sides before sunset. I'd hoped for colourful clouds...but in the end I got neither. Thick cloud cover obscured the sun and removed any chance of colourful skies....but the place still has an incredible atmosphere, and there was no way I was going to leave without getting one shot that I was happy with.

I took 7 exposures that evening (I take far fewer shots now than I used to), and this was the very first.
Elgol, like many places in Skye and the Highlands, is pretty high up on my "Really have to get back there one day and try and shoot it better" list.

A 3-minute exposure over a hidden lagoon in Dor beach, Israel.
This image concludes the series from one of the most amazing sunsets I've shot. I tried to be gentle with the processing, but the colors there were so intense that no matter what I did, It was bound to look unreal.

Quite a tricky photo. The boat was slowly moving, so I couldn´t use too long exposures. The problem was that there was not much ambient light, so I had to use exposures >10seconds to properly expose the image. As this was not an option (as the boat would be totally blurry), I had to increase the ISO to 400. With my pentax K10d this would be a total no-no, due to extreme noise, but it worked very nicely with the Sony a55 and the Adobe Camera RAW 6.3 amazing noise reduction algorithm.

Besides that, and since it was already night, I had a yellow light coming from behind, which got caught in the long exposure, as you can see in the back of the boat and the bottom part of the photo. Still, I think it adds something different to the image.

The incoming tide creates spectacular motion washing in and out of the rocks, at Valla beach. I got wet taking this, had to walk through waist deep water to get the perfect composition.

Coastline enveloped by sea spray during the golden hour, after an afternoon shower.

Golden hour (sometimes known as magic hour) is the first and last hour of sunlight during the day. Typically the lighting is more diffused because the sun is near the horizon, so the sunlight travels through more of the atmosphere, reducing its intensity.

It's been a while since I've been out shooting, but fortunately this afternoon I was lucky enough to have the time and the weather on my side. I was in the mood for some long exposures so I headed off to Sawtell beach, that's where I found these interesting rocks. I probably should have worn shoes though, those rocks are razor sharp on barefoot.
