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...

The last light of a warm sunset at the summit of Mount Thabor in french alps... A great moment looking at these growing shadows over the cliffs... The night was clear and quite cold at 3178m high...

The Chamonix needles, in the light of the late afternoon of october... It is the first picture of a trip to Switzerland in 2008. We were on the way to the famous Materhorn...

Arnarfjordur
Iceland

More specifically, this location is called Hvestudalur, one of our favourite locations in Iceland (which is saying something considering how much I love the country!). We stayed the night previously in the Bildudalur youth hostel which is located on the south of the West Fjords. We had scouted the area the previous night in poor light and arose at 5am for the dawn. After some incredible shooting into the sunrise, the clouds blew in and rained. We thought it was the end of our shoot but as we both turned around from different locations in the area, we saw this rainbow seemingly beaming up into the dark clouds above.

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.

Svinafell Glacier
Iceland

This was the first site that Marianne and I stopped at on a great last weekend in Iceland. We are every grateful to Orvar and Mai for showing us around (Orvar's site is at www.arcticphoto.is) the area. We had visited the area to the left of this scene but to walk on the glacier itself and find small pools of crystal clarity like this was a dream. If anyone has an inkling to visit this particular location, the access point is behind a fosshotel just past the actual sign to Svinafell glacier.

This is the composition I had gone up y Cribau to shoot, once at sunset and once at sunrise in the morning.

It is realitely straightforward to plan snots like this using a map alone in areas of dramatic landscape. In this case I wanted to shoot Snowdon and this location to the SW of the mountain looked like a good location for a view. Of course I still needed a foreground and pools are marked on the OS map. In that way you can plan a composition you have never seen before, or at least get a pretty good idea!

I didnt quite get the light I was after, but the 10 seconds of light I had (and thats 10 seconds in 3 freezing hours in the morning!) was just enough. The wind was NW and the clouds were forming over the mountains and blocking the sun, which was a shame. At least the light is quite unusual.

This frozen pool, surrounded by sunlit grass with Fairfield in the distance was a great subject for me to shoot something other that the classic vista (which incidentally is what I also most like shooting when I can!)

An unexpected burst of light just before sunset caught me off gaurd in what was originally a scouting mission to find compositions for the following morning. This light display was at its best for only a minute. I took this shot and then ran off to find a stronger composition only for the light to fade. Although I could have done more with more time I was still extremely happy to capture this.

The highlights have been left blown out intentionally, it just doesnt look realistic otherwise.

I'm back! After almost a month of nonstop travel and running workshops, I am finally back at home base for a few days to get caught up on administrative duties and process images from my trips. So far this spring I have visited the wild beaches and gardens of Charleston, SC, shot the spring in the Smoky Mountains and just returned home from over a week of slot canyon photography based out of Page, Arizona.

This is the first image I would like to share from my recent travels. I shot this amazing display of glow light in a very remote and little visited slot canyon in Arizona.

Thanks for having a look and leaving a comment,

Joe.

A shot from an amazing afternoon in november. The light we have up here in november is such a delight for a photographer. Several hours of the most gorgeous light.

This is shot 3 minutes away from my house...

Cheers!

Shot this one high up in my mountain playground. I`m lucky enough to live close to the most
amazing mountains. The possibilities are endless in this area and i`ve been exploring it my entire
life. If it`s one single theme that will dominate my photography for all eternity, then it certainly is
these mountains.

This day had constantly changing lightconditions. When i got home i had a great variety of shots. All done
within a few hectic hours in the middle of the day. It was nice to walk around in the
mountains without my fishing gear for a change. I got to enjoy the wildlife a bit as well. I`ve already posted
a shot of a reindeer. And if i had a bigger zoom than the 17-40mm, i would have showed you pictures of the Golden Eagle,
White Tailed Sea-Eagle and a Gyrfalcon. A memorable day for sure...

The mountain you see is Lafjelltinden (1030m). One of 13 tops reaching higher than 1000 meters in a small area.

Hope you like it..

During February of last year I was in Arches National Park with some amazing conditions. I had never shot in fog before this nor have I since, and I don't think I've ever had more fun practicing photography. The elements transformed already amazing landscapes that I'd seen dozens of times into views that seemed otherworldly.

Rain and wind were a constant this past weekend in the Moab area. While not great for backpacking and mountain biking, this weather instability lends well to dramatic landscapes.

As often happens with nature photography great light is coupled with foul weather. This scene was a calm and relaxing prelude to the oncoming storm that blew up and over this exposed ridge. To hear more about that read the story with this photo: [link]
