Another shot from an evening on the western coast of Algarve last month.

The sky and light were lovely, the tide and light were receding from the long, flat beach of Castelejo, and to capture shots like this I was waiting for waves to come up the beach, then as they receded, running after them and setting up the tripod and camera before the next wave came in.
As the waves rolled back up the beach, I tripped the shutter, waited for the exposure to finish and quickly lifted the camera and tripod up and out of the water before the waves came over it.

I got very wet. It was a lot of fun :-)

A shot from later the same evening:

One of the problems about going to places that I've seen photographed a hundred times before, is that I always have in my head an idea of exactly which shot I want to get from a location that I've never actually even stood in.

In my experience, it's rare that nature conspires to give you exactly what you want, and quite often the location itself isn't quite what you expected (case in point, the famous trees in Val d'Orcia, Tuscany are right next to a major road with heavy trucks screaming by) and it's harder to compose the shot I want than I thought it would be.
So with places that are far away from home and require a holiday to get there, I end up compromising, making do with the conditions I get for the few days I'm there, and promising myself that "I'll come back one day and do it better"

So this shot of the Trotternish Peninsula on the Isle of Skye is the exception. It's one of the very few times that everything has come together perfectly, and I've seen the shot I've been carrying around with me in my head for a couple of years, materialise right infront of the camera.
The light sweeping across the landscape only lasted for a few seconds...but it was enough :-)

Pity the same thing didn't happen when I made the trek up the Old Man of Storr and out to Elgol beach. Oh well, I'll go back there one day and do them better......

Same morning and location as:

The granite formations of the Buttermilk at the base of the Eastern Sierras at Sunset. In the background is 14,252ft White Peak of the White Mountains.

I have literally been waiting for months to get a sunset like this. It was trully impressive light.

Sun kissed cascades, Great Falls National Park, Virginia. I made this image last summer at sunrise. I had to climb out across a section of rocks and boulders to get the perspective I wanted for this composition. The water was raging and made the journey out pretty dangerous. I was blessed with magnificient light in return for the work.

“Alone in the silence, I understand for a moment the dread which many feel in the presence of primeval desert, the unconscious fear which compels them to tame, alter or destroy what they cannot understand, to reduce the wild and prehuman to human dimensions. Anything rather than confront directly the antehuman, that other world which frightens not through danger or hostility but in something far worse—its implacable indifference.” Edward Abbey

Beautiful twilight colours paint the sky over Sawtell Beach as a faint rainbow begins to appear above the island. Magical Autumn afternoon to be outdoors shooting, pure bliss!

I've toned down the saturation and contrast a little. Let me hear your thoughts...

Sunset light over the solfatares of Gunuhver hot spot in Iceland... I remember the sulfur odor, the cold wind and the warm light... Icelandic light.

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.

Jokulsarlon , Iceland

My wife and I have finally finished our trip in Iceland. On our last morning there, we had to drive back to Reykjavik and so, we planned this shoot on our way back from the farm Hali since we had been in the area for 2 days already. When we woke, it was thick mist all around and we were resigning ourselves to a long drive . However, 5 minutes from the lagoon, the mist lifted for this sight! Vatnajokull icecap being lit by the rising sun opposite and the mist clearing. We couldn't decide which side of the lagoon to go but marianne chose the better (see her image marianne~lim) location than mine.

Landmannalaugar
Iceland

This has to be one of the most remarkable locations I have visited even if the weather was not as good as it could have been. Located in the interior of Iceland, we arrived there by 4WD bus from Reykjavik and spent one night there before setting off on the beautiful laugavegur hike. The long days meant long twilights which made photography even more satisfying at the ends of the day. This was dawn on the second day after I had slipped on those rocks giving me wet feet for the rest of the day's hiking.

Hanson Bay
Kangaroo Island

This was a picture taken just before dawn on a memorable morning at Hanson Bay on the South coast of Kangaroo Island. The morning started off with thick fog which eventually lifted. The clouds were grey and gradually lit crimson while the sea spray and fog also lifted. All the while, shadows across the dunes were a striking feature of the foreground.

Me and *hougaard went on a short trip to Arniston, which is close to the southern most tip of Africa. It's a beautiful little town, with endless photographic possibilities along its coast.

A fisherman made my day by standing so close to this cascade.

Kogel Bay, South Africa

Manual blend of 2 exposures. The long exposure is made possible by the use of a ND400 filter. I have shot many variations of this composition before. Those mountains are just wonderful when light hits them.

Another from my recent trip to Arniston. Same morning as *hougaard's shot, . I have similar shots to his, but that would be boring right :) So here is a portrait orientation shot, a little bit later (right after sunrise), shot with an ND400 and a 3 stop grad.
