The Sisters of Kintail

Marianne and I have been travelling scotland for the last week or so. Our travels took us recently to the town of Ratagan which is a great area to explore the 5 sisters of kintail. This view was taken from the summit of Sgurr na Ciste-Diubhe. The view is of Ratagan at loch Duich below with the next 2 sisters along the ridge line in view. The clouds were flying in at our eye level which makes for a disorienting experience of motion.

Jokulsarlon Beach

Most of the best shots from the evening shoot at Jokulsarlon one month ago was on the beach where icebergs were left stranded rather than at the lagoon itself. This one was taken well after sunset with lingering colours. We had realised our mistake by staying at the lagoon shooting into the sun too long when things were fantastic here at the beach.

I went shooting with Orvar that weekend and his version is here :

If you like Iceland - check out his photostream for inspiration as it certainly helped fuel my desire to travel directly across the world to this beautiful country

Miancimu
Yunnan Province, China

In the far North West of Yunnan province lies the Kawakarpo Mountain range which straddles the border of Yunnan and Tibet. It also goes by the name of Kawagebo, Meilixueshan just to confuse matters. One of the reasons for its fame is that every clear dawn, the tips of the mountains catch the dawn light in breath taking fashion.
This mountain, Miancimu is 700m shorter than Kawakarpo but probably more attractive to photograph.
I took this shot about 200m down from the tourist platform where the view was just as good and free. -5 degrees outside made for alot of pushups and squats to keep warm while waiting. The image is 2 shots stitched in photoshop.

Jokulsarlon
Iceland

On our last dawn shoot in Iceland we woke up at 5am and looked outside... nothing but fog. We packed our bags and drove towards Jokulsarlon anyway, hoping that it would lift. As we headed there it surely did disappear, and there were clear skies overhead.

As the sun started to come up there was just one other photographer braving the cold with us. The top of the Vatnajokull icecap began to turn pink with the dawn light and the lagoon remained magically still.

It was one of the best moments of my Iceland trip.

Black Cuillins
Elgol, Isle of Skye, Scotland

After several days of rain and clouds and no sunsets or sunrises, we finally got SOMEthing at Elgol. Too bad the light was to the left, but it was good enough for me!

The Cuillins dominate the horizon in the Isle of Skye; it's hard to miss them from anywhere on the island.

Beinn Alligin and Liathach
View from Annat, across Upper Loch Torridon
Scotland

One of the few sunrises that really popped. I do admit to having trouble with the light at either end of the day here in Scotland... sometimes it promises to be so good but then just fizzles out!

This morning at Torridon I clambered out of bed when the alarm went off - not too early at 6am as the days are getting shorter now - and peered outside the window with Dylan. We decided, let's do it. A short drive later, crossing a cow field in the dark and clambering the fence to the loch side pretty much woke me up and I managed my second panorama for the trip. ;)

Twin Falls

This is in the center of the gorge where every corners bears a new surprise. Shot from a shaky bridge with the tripod twisted between the treads to stabilize the image for a few seconds.

As usual this is a manual blend of several exposures.

I just returned home after leading a weekend photo tour/seminar based out of Canaan Valley, West Virginia. We had a big group of 18 talented and enthusiastic photographers and we worked it hard over the weekend. This is a shot from sunrise on the Sunday from the summit of Bear Rocks Preserve, Dolly Sods Wilderness, West Virginia. Enjoy and stay tuned for more images to come!

I have just released a brand new eBook, 10 Tips for Amazing Autumn Images, just in time for the fall color season! - [link]

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.

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.

Wenonah Head - Mid North Coast, NSW Australia.

Spectacular sunset at my beach. Whenever the tide recedes it leaves an almost mirror image in the wet sand. I'll never get tired of this place. It's forever changing.

No colour trickery here, only an early morning rise at 5am to capture the light at its peak. Taken locally at Flynns Beach, Port Macquarie NSW, Australia.
