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.

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.

Hvitserkur,
Northern Iceland

Part of our travels took us past this place in North Iceland on the Vatsnes Peninsula. We stayed over night at the youth hostel Osar so that we could have a dawn and dusk shoot of this location. Sadly the weather didnt fully cooperate with us but dawn did give a glimmer of light for about 10 minutes. Incidentally I happened to meet a contact from flickr travelling around iceland as well! The world is such a small place !

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.

Godafoss
Iceland

After completely doing these falls injustice last year, we revisited the site and we got perfect conditions. The wind was blowing away from us this time, which makes it so much more pleasant!!

This shot taken in the middle of an overcast day, with just a hint of blue in the horizon. An ND500 helped with this long exposure.

Alftavatn
Iceland

On the evening of the second day of the Laugevegur hike we watched the skies as it neared sunset. It promised to be quite pretty, so at 8.30pm we headed out into relatively windy conditions to the edge of the lake.

As the sun drew nearer and nearer the horizon the light became more and more spectacular. The wind died down every now and then, which enabled some nice reflections from the water.

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.

Geisler Spitzen - Dolomites

After we arrived up here thick fog closed in and we spent the whole evening sitting in front of our tents seeing nothing. I hoped that the fog would clear over night and on the next morning we had this situation.

Triglav - Mostnica Pool

This is a look at the fall from my recent shot, but this time I'm right in front of it. The pool above the fall might be several meters deep and I'm still impressed by that rock floating above the water there.

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.

Another shot from the secret falls. After having a conversation with =Alex37 I've decided to give this a warmer saturation which creates a more magical atmosphere, a lot like it was with my own eyes when I was taking this shot. This place has so much potential, I have one shot in particular that I'm yet to capture. I'm just waiting for the perfect conditions, early morning mist and sunlight coming in through the trees, hopefully I can get some sun rays.

*re-edit* Gave the golds some more punch, increased saturation and contrast slightly. Also corrected white balance in the water and gave it a slight cyan cast to suit the mystical atmosphere.

I have this printed 12 x 18 in the Bellingen photography/art competition. For sale $350 - if interested note me.

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.

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!

Caught some amazing light under the Court of the Patriarchs the other morning in Zion National Park. I will be in the park for another 2 days and then heading over to Page for 5 days of shooting on the sandstone and in the slots!

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.

Aurora Borealis a couple of days ago...A stunning sight.

Magic cloth technique. Hiding the sky with a cloth for the majority of the exposure, the letting the sky expose for the last 20 secs...

Hope you like it as much as i do...

This one is from a truly insane evening late in may. I shot this around half an hour after midnight. The whole evening had already proven to be extraordinary. A blanket of pitch black clouds had created the most magnificent display of colour and drama you can immagine.

I knew that the midnight sun would appear in this spot at exactly this time and i wasnt disappointed. The dark clouds darkened the whole scene and the sun was intense in the gap between sea & sky. An extremely difficult shot to pull off because of the enormous dynamic range.

This may not seem real, but this is as close to reality as i was able to come... I just love how the sunlight is showing through the blueish water over the rocks.

I wish i had a reverse grad for this scene, but i still managed to get some detail out of the sky. It was a sick night...
