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]

Pigeon Point Lighthouse is an old lighthouse along the coast off Highway 1, between Half Moon Bay and Santa Cruz. Every year, for 2 hours, they light up the original lens in all directions like this. It stays still for the first ten minutes, and then starts spinning for the next 110 minutes. Thousands of people show up for this event, and probably even more than normal this year, because due to budget problems last year, the lighthouse was not lit. This was my first time photographing it and it did not disappoint.

Note: This is a newer version that I re-processed with some new methods I learned.

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.

Godafoss,
Iceland

Godafoss in the north of Iceland is undoubtedly one of the highlights of a photographic trip. Marianne and I were very fortunate to encounter this waterfall with the prevailing wind blowing back into the falls which allowed us the rare freedom of shooting without spray interfering. I shot this one with an ND500 and found out that later, Marianne took a vertical shot of the same scene .

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.

Long exposure at dusk, over a small lake in the Cerces mountains, in French Alps. The clouds were moving in my direction pushed by a strong wind, creating this impression of movement with the long exposure.

Liechtensteinklamm

Finally I found some time to get out again after all the moving and packing.
Within two days I visited seven gorges here in Austria - six of them were new to me and each of them had their little surprises for me. All in all they are amongst the most beautiful in Austria and I will visit them again when I'm in that area.
The "Liechtensteinklamm" here is considered the most beautiful gorge of Austria - each year over 100.000 people come to see this lovely gorge. I was expecting much and was not overwhelmed to be honest. Don't get me wrong, it's an impressive place but not the best thing for photographers. As the canyon is very steep and narrow you have to stay on the bridges almost all of the time which limits your compositional flexibility and you almost always have the bridges themselves in the shot. This here is a great example. I was already on the other side of the railing on a little rock and the camera was over the edge as much as possible (the center of gravity of the tripod was very questionable). I took one shot without the bridge but the composition is out of balance like that so I had to get the bridge in there and this is as good as I got it. It definitely gives you an idea about the place and its accessibility. I hope you like it anyway.

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.

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.
