An image from my last trip to Isle of Skye in september 2009... Dark stormy clouds over the Cuillins hills from the coast of Elgol. Between magical light and showers, it does remind me the strength of scottish landscapes.

Hello,

Here is the first photograph of my last trip to Iceland in september 2010... An unbelievable sight on the road to Askja, a huge volcanic area in the inner highlands of the north Iceland.

The fall colors on the vegetation were simply amazing. We were here in a totally desertic area...no human presence at 80km round at least. Just the light, the wind, the cold and the colors of this landscape, an amazing remember. The weather was quite cold (aprox. 0 to 3░C) and the first snowfalls were not so far. The last gasp of life before the winter...

Thank you!
Xavier

Full view is highly recommended :)

Second day of Spring and the weather is absolutely stunning. Beautiful clear days, warm temperatures and lots of colour. There's something about the smell of the fresh air and warm sun that soothes the soul.

Anyway here's a shot of the last few minutes of light before the sun disperses beyond the horizon, Wellington Bay - Nambucca Valley, NSW Australia.

You probably recognize this location from this photo [link]

Was really misty this afternoon so I went back experimenting with different techniques. I quite liked the zoom effect on this one, really played with the ambient light.

I can still remember the smell of the ocean, and the sound of the waves crashing against the rocks.

Everything in me is aching to go back to this valley in the Richtersveld NP. It has the potential for a million photos within a 30 minute walk from where you camp. Sadly it's a 5 hour 4x4 drive into remote wilderness after 800km on the highway.

This is in South Africa but the plains in the distance behind the mountains is Namibia.

The weird color is from 5 stops of grad filters.

The Bettys Bay wetlands under amazing autumn light. This sunset was last year in April, but with recent improvement in my processing skills I went through some of my favorite images from 2009 again and reprocessed some.

Somewhat a right of passage this place for a south west based photographer, its cost me a great deal in petrol to get here and get it in half decent light, so although some may wince at seeing this place so often i unashamadely present Brentor church.
Its also somewhat of a photography marker for me as well as i came here initially about 3yrs ago when i first began my obsession with photography, the images i took reflect my naivety.

Im aware the composition is anything but original as well but it just works, this was shot with my 14mm prime and theres not many that have shot it so wide, its a lens i am loving more and more and care less and less it is unable to accomodate filters.
This evenings sunset proved to be the best of the year so far for me so i have another shot to come.

A place ive been to many times but never with any success...

Staple Tor is incredibly accessible and one of the most photogenic tors geologically so getting it to yourself can be difficult...

Pretty much everything fitted into place for this shot, there had been thick cloud all day that seemed to break readily in the high wind so the chance of some good cloud at sunset and a gap in the clouds was promising. I headed to the western side of the moor watching the weather as i drove. After looking at a few different locations i decided that the rocks at Staple tor would frame the setting sun best..
The contrast of the light was difficult to balance i used a .9 soft grad and also bracketed shots to blend later.

Skittendalen (in english "Dirty Valley") is my favourite place on earth. I will probably devote quite much of my time to shoot this area over the next years. This one is from a trip last october, looking over towards the mountains Rismålstinden (1012m) and Lilletinden (1134m)

Hope you like it...

Have a great day!

I have been shooting these kind of shots for the last week or so, and i`ll probably keep doing it for another week. The sun sets perfectly for me these days, in the exact right place.

This was shot under very shifting conditions. A minute after i shot this there was snow blowing around liek crazy. loved it :-)

Shot this one a few days back. A very nice sunset with an amazing afterglow... Spring is insanely late this year. I shot this location around the same time last year and back then it was a hell of a lot more "summerly". Stumbled over this rock...still being embraced by some cool snow.

Not much shooting these days...running out of ideas :-)

After I returned from Scotland I didn't spend enough time editing the shots, and this one in particular was rushed...I was never happy with, so I've gone back and done it again. This has a darker foreground..in the last one it was much brighter which reduced the contrast and drama in the shapes of the landscape and the light, and I've also cropped it a little on the right.

A shot looking east into the rising sun from the Quiraing, Isle of Skye
It's a very very common location, but the place we stayed was 5 minutes driving from here...so what are you going to do? NOT shoot it?

I had wonderful conditions that morning, the sun was mostly obscured, but as the cloud wasn't too heavy, there was still plenty of colour in the sky and breaks in the cloud for sun beams.

From the exact same spot I captured my last submission about 15 minutes later with a telephoto lens.

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.
