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...

A few minutes after the storm, some rays of light formed a rainbow near the cliffs of Mount Aiguille, in Vercors Natural Park. The green plants in the foreground and the yellow/red light illuminating the clouds gave a really particular athmosphere to the scene.

I doubt there is a landscape in Southern African that has been photographed as much as the trees of Deadvlei and if something has been photographed that much then I have no desire to photograph it.
Despite that, I found myself heading for deadvlei in January of 2011. Gate times at Sesriem aren't exactly accommodating towards photographers. They open 45-60 minutes before sunrise and then you have a 60 minute drive and a 20 minute walk to get to the dead trees...if you adhere to the speed limit within the park that is. If you don't then you can make it in time for first light on the Western Dunes, as we did on this morning. My two travel companions immediately started shooting the iconic trees, while I wandered further into the pan and found these water drainage patterns along the Eastern boundary. There were many patterns that resembled different shapes, but I liked this tree the most for it's symbolism of photographing a tree at deadvlei that no one had photographed before...

A spectacular winter sunrise greeted =PastyGuy and me after camping on the snow on Dartmoor. We got up about 40 minutes before sunrise. I peaked my head out the tent and proclaimed "There is a 100% change of a sunrise". 10 minutes later we were engulfed in a hail storm with terrible visibility. Fortunately things picked up after that and the light we actually got couldn't have been much better.

Pen Y Fan is the highest peak in the Brecon Beacons and in southern Britain. At 886m it is diminuative by continental standard but can still provide spectacular views and unforgiving conditions.

Photographically 2012 did not get off to a good start for me. Of the trips I have been on perhaps 25% have produced any images at all. It's hard to keep going when you keep hitting bad weather! Our hike up to Pen Y Fan was no better. Freezing rain made for quite unpleasant walking conditions and my waterproof shell literally became a shell of ice! Once the tent was up (on the summit of Pen Y Fan because I try not to do things in half measures) we were fine though. It was cold but down jackets and sleeping bags soon warm you up, as does hot chocolate with a spot of whisky! The night went well and I got up every 3 hours to check the weather (it was cloudy but still all night). By 5.30am a gap had appeared on the eastern horizon and with the high clouds overhead an wonderful sunrise became almost certain.

Getting out the tent revealed just how cold it had been overnight with ice covering the tent but photography was the only thing on my mind. Donning my crampons I set off around Pen Y Fan in search of compositions....

Another shot from the 15 minutes or so of stunning light we had at sunrise. What a view! I am happy with the photos I took on the morning, but nothing can compare to the real thing!

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

Eilean Donan Castle
Scotland

This is surely one of the most iconic places to photograph in Scotland. My approach to photographing these places is to take that iconic shot (usually because its claim to fame is well established and pleasing the eye) - but then to try taking angles that I haven't seen before. Marianne and I wondered out to the rocks on the other side of the castle to take a few images from this angle. We were lucky in that the tide was low and the water glassy still for a while. As we always predict, our presence at an unusual spot drew some other people out to this spot. It was quite a slippery rock surface and an old gentleman slipped with a very heavy thud - he seemed to have escaped without major injury thankfully.

Annapurna South
Nepal

One of the most popular walks in the Annapurna region is the walk to Poon Hill and Ghorepani for views of the Annapurna Range and Dhauligiri. Our walk to the Annapurna Base Camp detoured past this spot where the clouds obscured most of the view but when the mountains came into sight, it was nothing short of breathtaking. With the distant mountains towering several kilometers above our altitude, carrying the tripod and long lenses and extender was well worth the extra weight.

Coastline enveloped by sea spray during the golden hour, after an afternoon shower.

Golden hour (sometimes known as magic hour) is the first and last hour of sunlight during the day. Typically the lighting is more diffused because the sun is near the horizon, so the sunlight travels through more of the atmosphere, reducing its intensity.

A big and dangerous-looking thunderstorm cell is approaching the Saxon Switzerland on a summer day. It has already started to rain at the horizon, while the Falkenstein Mountain in the foreground of the photo still bathes in warm setting sunlight.

Reprocessed this shot from northern Spain 2010 to give it a more natural look. What do you think?


Photo of an overwhelming spectacle of nature in the sky on a summer day shortly before sunrise. This shot was taken in the unspoiled Picos de Europa National Park in the north of Spain. Old ferns and blossoming brooms make the picture unique.

SWITZERLAND, Bernina

After numerous arduous hikes during the last 4 weeks I'm proud to present a lot of new work. I traveled through the Eastern Alps: from Switzerland to South Tyrol and the Dolomites to Slovenia. I'll upload them here on DA during the next days. The first part of the series shows the Swiss canton GraubŁnden where I shot Bergell, Val Roseg and Val Bernina. English descriptions and more shoots will follow soon!

some pretty intense direct sunlight and a heavy sky this made for a challenging shot.
I shot frames with the foreground exposed at single exposure stops with my finger covering the sun and so reducing the chances of flare.
i used a lee three stop grad and a single stop soft grad reversed and shot exposures to cover the range in the sky.
edited in lightroom then blended in photoshop.

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.
