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.

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.

View larger for a better view...

A shot from an amazing afternoon in november. The light we have up here in november is such a delight for a photographer. Several hours of the most gorgeous light.

This is shot 3 minutes away from my house...

Canon 5d w/17-40mmL, Polarizer and Lee 0.9 soft grad.

Cheers!

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 just had to throw out this one from yesterday. The aurora was extremely colourful, despite actually being quite weak. A 30 sec exposure @ iso 1600 brought out the purple tones brilliantly. It was completely dark so i had to blend in a 220 sec iso 800 exposure for the surroundings.

This turned out ok i think...

Have a great day everyone!

The Hidden Place

Fellow photographer Didl Gloger found this hidden place. It was tricky to get down there as it was rainy and slippery. I hope it was the effort.

BTW ... thanks to all the comments on the DD of today. There are too much comments to answer them all.

I just returned home from 13 days in southern Utah with fellow photographer and friend Ian Plant. The first part of the trip was spent leading our Arches and Canyonlands Creative Vision Photo Workshop. After that we spent time in the Page and Escalante area backpacking and exploring slot canyons and sandstone rims.

This is a shot from the last evening shoot with the workshop group. After the light faded, we positioned the group below Delicate Arch and set up a starscape. This is a 30 minute exposure at 1 hour after dark with a twilight exposure for the glow on the horizon blended in. The arch was illuminated with about 20 flash bursts and a red gel.

Thanks for having a look!

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.

Another (and probably the final) image from an evening shooting last year with ~arqhugo and ~PauloALopes

I used the Lee Big Stopper to give a long exposure, but had to open up to f8 and push the ISO to 400 to keep it from being excessively long. The light was excellent, and I wanted to get a variety of shots done.

A shot taken in early 2009.
I never submitted it before because I've never been that keen on it....there's nothing about the image that I really connect with. Still, I don't have anything new to submit at the moment, so here you go.
