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.

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:

The Photo

Almost exactly a year since I photographed this beach last time, I was in the south of Portugal again last weekend.

It had been a LONG TIME since I was out with my camera. A long time since I'd done any waterscapes, and on this weekend I had both the time and the inspiration to go out and shoot.....I just didn't know if the weather was going to help me out.

The first evening was grey and rainy, so I didn't even bother going out. The second day was promising, and I headed out to the coast, only to find 45mph winds coming off the ocean, and a huge cloud bank that ate the sun as it got close to the horizon. I did get one shot on that evening, but more than anything, I just had so much fun working the tripod, working the camera, and splashing about on the rocks.
The third and final night didn't look so promising, so I headed out to a location that I knew well and thought that I could get something from even if the sky was disappointing.

Well, as it turned out, the sky was brilliant, and I spent a happy hour there shooting. Again, it was very windy, which shook the tripod and sent lots of spray off the incoming tide. Long exposures were pretty much out, but I couldn't resist shooting one when the sky was at it's peak of colour.
As I said, the tide was coming in rather quickly, and Casteljo is a very flat beach. I wanted to shoot with this rock as a foreground feature, which meant waiting till the waves receded, running down the beach after the retreating wave, setting up, measuring exposure and filters, and then shooting before the incoming wave submerged everything again. I didn't have the time for a 30 second exposure, and didn't want to open the aperture wider than f9.5, so I shot at ISO400 to ensure I could get the image before the waves came back.

Sure enough, the shutter clicked shut at the end of the exposure just as the waves were coming back, so I picked the tripod up just as the water came round my legs, and walked back up the beach out the sea to check how the image had come out.

It was a lovely evening, and I think I'll be submitting at least two more shots from the same session.

Shot last year at the same beach:

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.

Up at about 10,000ft overlooking Sawtooth Lake, the biggest lake in the Sawtooths. The peak on the right is Mt. Regan (10190ft). On the left in the background is the small town of Stanley and the White Cloud Mountains.

A massive storm moving in over the Badwater playa of death valley national park.

I photographed this scene in 40+mph winds. Minutes after photographing this it started pouring rain. As the night went on the wind only got stronger and it rained harder. Who would have thought I would have been in that much rain in Death Valley...? Hahaha!

This is a shot that I took on St Patrick’s day morning from off the great cliffs in Doolin, I had some decent light to work with but I was really drawn to the great textures and the colors in the FG. Thanks for looking and your comments.

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...

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.

Last autumn colors on these trees of Devoluy mountains in french Alps. A great color contrast between the spot light on the foreground trees and the dark cliffs shadowed by the clouds...

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.
