I'm just back from our last workshop in the 'nevache valley' ( 05 ) hautes alpes / France

Snow was already here, everywhere .. And we had luck with this strange cloud , creating an interesting answer to this curve in the snow .

Last colors of a magic sunset after a short thunderstorm over the Mount Aiguille, a well known summit of Vercors Natural Park in french Alps.
I remember the contrast between the color of the sky and the freshness of theses big plants in the foreground called "verâtres" in french :)

The volcanic area near the Landmannalaugar in Iceland... I remember the vast, colorfull and desertic feeling of the place... The weather was quite good, but really cold with constant wind coming from the north...
The feeling of walking on another planet...

I found this wonderful meadow of blooming Lupine up Gothic road north of the quirky ski town of Mount Crested Butte. The monsoon was a little weak on this afternoon, but the clouds happened to hang around until sunset providing me with some great shapes and nice color. I used an ultra wide-angle lens getting in close to the most profuse blooms and framed in the spectacular sky waiting until the color in the clouds reached its peak before tripping the shutter.

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.

This was taken in pitch blackness, 70 minutes after sunset. Exposure was 6 minutes, ISO400, f/7.1. I was shooting so late because me and my workshop client were waiting for the moon to rise. After 2 hours in an icy wind we gave up and went home. As we drove away a blood red full moon rose on the horizon, dissapearing and reappearing through the clouds. It took me a good week to get over the shot that I missed, but so we learn to be patient :)

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.

A shot from a couple of years ago of the iconic cipresso trees near San Quirico d'Orcia, Tuscany.
This is the "classic" view of the trees, where they are sidelit from the right. I was initially reluctant to shoot from this angle because, as it was so early in the year the grass wasn't all that long and there are the various bald patches where the earth shows through. I countered this in my original submission (below) by shooting from a different angle and keeping the camera really low (something that can't be done from this side because of the nature of the terrain), but it's this view that really captures the undulating nature of the location.
It looks peaceful, but anyone who's been here will recognize that to shoot from this angle you have to be standing pretty much underneath a concrete flyover for a major road.

I've got plenty of new stuff to submit, but most of them are waterscapes, and I like to keep my submissions varied if I can, so I'm mixing up more recent shots with older ones I never got around to submitting here.

My other shot from the same location

Almost certainly one of the most photographed pieces of landscape in the British Isles, it's almost blasphemy to go to Skye and NOT attempt to photograph the Old Man Of Storr in the north of the island.

It's a dawn location, the view here is taken looking south east across the south of the Isle of Skye (you can see the peaks of the Cuillins in the distance) with the mainland just visible to the left and the isle of Raasay between.
This however, isn't a dawn shot. I took this in the middle of the afternoon, when I was familiarizing myself with the location and picking out a spot to shoot from for the following morning. Fortunately, I took my time and got a couple of decent shots, because as it turned out, when I climbed up there before dawn the following day, in the cold and the wind and the rain and the mist, I couldn't actually see the Storr because it was so cloudy. I waited two hours for the sun to rise, but it never broke through the cloud, and all I got for my trouble was the shot below



So, as it turned out, this shot, taken in crappy light in the middle of the afternoon, was the only shot I actually got of the place. Fortunately, it's one of the very few locations which still photographs pretty well even in the aforementioned crappy mid-afternoon light...

To give an idea of scale, there are probably 20 or 30 hikers in this shot walking around the base of the rocks, and my wife is actually sitting on a rock looking out over the small lake you can see on the bottom left of the picture. The green smudge is a pine plantation you have to walk up through to get to the location. It's not a particularly hard walk in the day, but alone in the dark and mist before dawn, it's pretty eerie.

I never did get to see it bathed in the glow of first light at sunrise, but even so, it's one of those places that really does take your breath away....even in crappy weather.

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.

I have been checking this tree out for some time, but the light never worked out the way I wished for, so I kept returning just for fun. After several trips I was rewarded with this beautiful sunset. Please enjoy.

The classic view of Colorado. I love this place very much. It's almost a perfect gift from mountains.
