Updated photo - many people pointed out that the water was over-exposed, and I finally had the time to correct it!


Light Puzzles II


A wild landscape in front of you... gigantic tiny pieces of solid rock scathered and waiting to be sorted out... as the sun descends into the horizon and pulls you into solving the puzzle...

Alien Earth


Continuing the presentation of the endless surprises that long exposures bring to our eyes... an intense, yet calmer earth, soothing and vibrant, just like that imaginary alien planet which inhabits our imaginations, that planet we'd love to visit one day.



On a side note... notice those two separate "blotches" on the left at the end of the dark rock formation? It's a fisher, caught on the long exposure in two distinct positions.


Your comments and favs are very very welcome.

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.

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 treacherous, but photogenic spot I discovered about 200km from home. I find that the scale of these rocks is quite hard to determine, but the tallest in the image is about 5-7m high/20ft high.

Kogel Bay, South Africa

Manual blend of 2 exposures. The long exposure is made possible by the use of a ND400 filter. I have shot many variations of this composition before. Those mountains are just wonderful when light hits them.

Kogel Bay, South Africa

The 20 second exposure was made possible by the 9 stop ND400 filter, with a 3 stop grad on top of it.

* Since this is one of my favourite shots from this location, I decided to redo the processing. Back then I was a bit heavy handed with the sats and contrast. I think we all are in the beginning :)

This is the second time that I have capture a light pillar. It's quite a sight. This was one heck of a sunset. So good that it rattled me silly. Performance anxiety is an awful thing.

Definition of a light pillar according to Wikipedia: "A light pillar is a visual phenomenon created by the reflection of light from ice crystals with near horizontal parallel planar surfaces. The light can come from the sun (usually at or low to the horizon) in which case the phenomenon is called a sun pillar or solar pillar. It can also come from the moon or from terrestrial sources such as streetlights."

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.

My 100th deviation submission!

The Photo

Another shot from the session I did the other week on the South West coast of Portugal. This was the last shot of the night, 30 minutes after the sun had set...and I'm amazed it worked out to be honest..there was so much spray in the air that I didn't think it was worth trying anything longer than a couple of seconds.

Got to Lake Tekapo a bit later than expected and just missed out on quite a nice sunset:( Luckily theres light until 9pm in NZ so i took a little wander around the lake near 'the church of the good shepherd'. The moon was out which was a bonus:)

Little bit of an edit... i took a shot of the moon(at the time and at 200mm) intending to do this originally but never liked it. Opinions?

From the same morning as Denticulate. Got pretty wet when the freak wave came in but really liked how it was crashing over the rocks here:D Taken at Flynns Beach, Port Macquarie, Australia.
