Very unusual for me to make what I consider to be a successful image around midday. Usually on a sunny day the light is too harsh. I guess in this case the haze and thin cloud managed to soften the light sufficiently that detail was retained in the shadows.

Sunrise on Suilven with Meall Meadonach on the right. It was a moderately clear morning but the haze softened the light from the rising sun. *Orca76 has a particularly good (and different) shot taken around the same time [link]

I have just returned from a trip to Assynt and Coigach with *Orca76

The greatest part of the trip was a summit wild camp on one of Scotlands finisest mountains, Suilven. The hike is not for the feint hearted. A 6 mile hike followed by a climb to 731m might not sound that hard, but try taking camping and photography gear to the summit and it's a slightly different ball game. I basically had to force Jake up the mountain, but he made it in the end!

The night was very rough indeed, we were in a totally exposed location, literally on the summit and overnight the wind changed from a 10mph easterly to a 30 gusting 50 southerly. My tent got absolutely hammered, but stood up well in the end. I certainly spent the coldest 5 minutes of my life resetting the guy lines at 12.30. It was soooooo cold!

This was taken around 4.45 am on the back of 3 hours of sleep! This is Meall Meadonach, the south eastern peak of Suilven.

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...

What a wonderful evening of great light at a fantastic location with contrast aplenty!
I just didn't have time for the amount of compositions before me.
This shot was at the end of a long week travelling a lot of miles after work to this particular stretch of coastline as i knew the conditions were so favourable.
After a few years of experiencing the seasons and elements as a photographer you get to learn what works best in your immediate environment. I am lucky i have a wealth of beauty in nature close at hand and i know i've not even scratched the surface yet.

This is the beauty of landscape photography an ever changing palette

A place ive been to many times but never with any success...

Staple Tor is incredibly accessible and one of the most photogenic tors geologically so getting it to yourself can be difficult...

Pretty much everything fitted into place for this shot, there had been thick cloud all day that seemed to break readily in the high wind so the chance of some good cloud at sunset and a gap in the clouds was promising. I headed to the western side of the moor watching the weather as i drove. After looking at a few different locations i decided that the rocks at Staple tor would frame the setting sun best..
The contrast of the light was difficult to balance i used a .9 soft grad and also bracketed shots to blend later.

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!

The Owens River and the Eastern Sierras by Moonlight. There is nothing like fumbling around with your gear at night trying to get your composition right, freezing your butt off, and cursing under your breathe because your remote wont work. All in a nights work. Hahaha!

For me this is one of my better done nightscape photos using only moonlight. Shooting the nightscape or landscape by moonlight is extremely difficult and takes alot of trial and error. Nailing your exposure can be extremely difficult as the amount of light the moon emits changes every night which also changes the length of your exposure and how far the stars will "streak" in the image. But, for me at least, color has always been the biggest problem with these types of shots. Often they can look extremely similar to really diffused daylight. So getting the color at a point where you can really get that light blueish soft light color requires experimentation both in the camera and in post processing. I feel that this is the best job I have done so far in capturing the mood that the landscape exudes under the moonlight. So far :)

Binalong Bay
Tasmania

The Bay of Fires area in Northeast Tasmania has remarkable coastal rock with lichen glowing orange just above the water line. Binalong Bay is the town at the southernmost end of the Bay with enough rocks there to keep photographers busy for days! There just isn't too much to do during the day but we went walking in the nearby mountains before settling and dawn and dusk for the rocks themselves.

Kirkjufell
Iceland

This was one of the last shots of a beautiful evening just outside Grundarfjordur when the weather finally began to clear. The previous 2 days had been washed out with solid rain. I used manual blending of 4 exposures and a photomatix produced image in this one. In coming weeks, I hope to present a video on Iceland flicking through every picture I took there in 2010 case people were curious!

This is an example of the 'photoreel' videos I've been working on : from Nepal in this case

Couta Rocks
Tasmania

Over Easter 2011, ~marianne-lim and travelled the north of Tasmania for 10 days. We focused on staying a few nights at certain locations rather than squeeze too much in to the itinerary (also because Marianne was 25 weeks pregnant at the time). This location on the Northwest coast of Tasmania begged for more time but we were unfortunately located at Burnie - 1-2 hours drive away. The sunset evolved rapidly from a boring blue sky afternoon to a sudden surge of cloud and pure red sunset. This image was taken with 3 stop reverse GND and 3 stop soft GND.

I'm back from my trip to "Les Monts du Cantal"...
Big thanks to my beloved girlfriend who brought me there. We had some awesome moments.

Picture taken on the top of "Le Puy Mary" at sunrise. We witnessed only one sunrise (we stayed 2 days) and we had luck...!

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:

A long promised dedication to *KaitlynGrenier A little late for her birthday and recuperation, but for a fantastic long time friend and all-round star, it's here anyway.


This will be the first of (no doubt) many images I'll submit from a recent trip down through Morocco to the edge of the Sahara desert in Erg Chebbi.

We spent 2 and a half days there, and for most of that time we had overcast, hazy conditions, or sandstorms. As it turned out, this wasn't really the problem it would have been with other kinds of landscapes because dunes are just great big light reflectors. I'm just as happy with the shots that I took under diffuse lighting like this as I am with the ones that I took under direct early morning side light.

This particular shot was taken in the afternoon just after a sandstorm was clearing. It's handheld at 185mm, and I didn't use any filters as the range of contrast was really low, and the washed out white of the sky, which wouldn't work with most landscapes, I find here actually complements the soft colours and textures of the dunes.

More work and prints available through my blog and my website

Another shot from my recent trip to the Sahara.

I woke up at sunrise, walked out into the dunes (much easier to do sunrises in a nice warm place like this, than the cold mountains of Scotland or Italy of previous years).

I really expected clear skies and strong side light....I got neither. The sky was grey and overcast, obscuring the sun and diffusing the light. However, dunes interact with light in a completely different way to any landscape I've ever photographed, in direct light, they become almost red, in this diffuse overcast lighting, the oranges were really strong.

It was an amazing scene, the immensity of the desert is breath-taking...as is the heat and dryness.

I couldn't filter this shot without darkening the tops of the dunes, so it's a blend of 3 images. One for the foreground, one for the sky, and one for the sun.
