This shot is a part of the landscape calendar, which is now available! Go check it out :D

Our objective for the day was to get on top of Panorama Ridge (snow-capped mountain on the mid left) to view the lake from above, but we turned away due to some dangerous overhanging snow which looked like it could start an avalanche at any moment. Instead of not getting to see the lake at all, I decided to run there quickly which added about an hour to our trip. We were walking through the forest in the dark, but seeing the lake at near sunset was so worth it!

While the lake itself had ripples, the somewhat enclosed pool of water between the Battleship Islands and the shore was like a mirror.

See the blog update from my trip to Scotland: [link]



I arrived at the Ben Nevis visitor's centre at 4:10am, just to realise the fog was so dense, that I couldn't find the sign to the path. So I stuck on some Radio 1 and waited for half and hour. It was not clearing at all. I thought I can't come back without any photographs, so I put my boots on and ventured into the fog. After about 30 minutes of walking up hill I noticed, that in fact it wasn't fog, but really low cloud in the valley. Above about 200-300 metres the area was completely clear and the visibility was excellent. This is a view of the valley I came from.

I have completely reproduced an earlier shot, as there was too much distortion, colour shifts and it wasn't stitched properly. I will keep two of them for the meantime, after which this one will remain in the gallery.

Full view is a must, as the ICC profiled is stripped from miniature by dA.




I have recently went on a trip to the Republic of Ireland, namely Counties Clare and Kerry, spending a total of 6 days in those beautiful places. I was hoping for slightly better weather condition, but I suppose you cannot have it all. Apart from visiting many tourist attractions I spent a few days shooting. Those have to be one of the most beautiful parts of the country.

The Cliffs of Moher are one of the most popular tourist attractions in Ireland attracting close to a million visitors yearly (according to Wikipedia). They reach 214 metres at the highest point making them the tallest in Ireland. There are a lot of birds nesting around the lower parts of the cliffs. I thought it added to the charm of the scenery.

A lot of work and very little sleep to get this one.

I got up at 03:30am, had two cups of coffee, packed up, got into the car and stormed away towards the mountains at 04:30am. After about an hour of driving (I missed a few turns) I finally found the car park and started the journey.

This peak is one of the smallest in the Mournes, I think it took me only 30 or 40 minutes to get to the top.

The sunrise was setting in very nice, so I quickly found a vantage point. I couldn't get anything interesting by shooting a single frame, so I decided to go for a panoramic shot. This ended up being stitched from 12 vertical shots.

The production ended up being quite difficult. I shot 3 exposures for each frame, however only when I got home I realised the dynamic range of the scene was about 11 EV (a camera can only see 6EV). I ended up blending each frame from 6 files. So a total of 72 files went into this photograph and about and hour and a half of postproduction. Quite happy with the result in the end.

I also decided to keep my backback and photobag in the frame, as it gives the shot a bit more of a sense of scale. I removed it, but it just didn't look the same.

EDIT: 25 Apr 2011 I re-editted it, it needed some tweaking.



Over 1000 views and more than 300 faves. Thanks for the support, I really appreciate it :)


EDIT2: 19 May 2011 fixed a halo and added minor amounts of saturation/luminosity as per critique.

A picturesque sunrise above the Alps with view of the Grat Mountain between Diepen and Rophaien. The grass on the mountain slopes appears very soft in the morning light. The contrast between light and shadow accentuates the curved slopes of the Grat very nicely.

Dolomites, Italy
Autumn 2012

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 500px during the next days. Part two of my Alp series 2012 contains the images from northern Italy. Where I shot the Stelvio National Park and the UNESCCO World Heritage Site Dolomites. At the middle of October the autumn was on it's peak and after some heavy snowfall till the valleys the landscape presents winterly. English descriptions and more shoots will follow soon!

We came here on our first night in Iceland. The wind was very strong which make it hard to get sharp shots and keep the tripod steady, but I managed to get a few I was happy with. This was made up of 6 vertical photos - 3 for the land & 3 for the sky, then merged in Photoshop. On the left the sun is setting, on the right the moon is rising.

Wow, my first Daily Deviation :D
A big thankyou for the DD suggestion and feature, and thanks to everyone for the views, comments and favourites :D

Update: I recently found out I won the Landscape category with this photo in Michael The Maven's 2012 International Photography Contest on michaelthemaven.com :D

Been going through some more of my photos from Iceland last September. Here's another shot of Seljalandsfoss, taken just before sunset.

Made up of 2 photos to include a little more in the foreground. Luckily managed to capture a few people behind the falls (on the right) to show the scale.

Update: My second Daily Deviation! There are too many favourites and comments to reply to them all individually so thanks to everyone for the favourites :D

Roche Abbey...

A re-working of an image I made in 2009 when the snow was here...

The abbey was founded in 1147. The co-founders of Roche were Richard de Busli, likely the great-nephew of the first Roger de Busli, the Norman magnate builder of Tickhill Castle, and Richard FitzTurgis. When the monks first arrived in South Yorkshire from Newminster Abbey in Northumberland, they chose the most suitable side of the stream that runs through the valley, on which to build their new Cistercian monastery.

Twenty-five years later, at the end of the century, the Norman Gothic great church had been finished, as well as most of the other buildings.

From the start, the Abbey of Roche, built for the so-called White Monks, as the Cistercians were known, had an almost otherworldly air. It was, after all, built at the northern end of an area once covered by Sherwood Forest, and it was said that Robin Hood went to Mass here.

The Roche Abbey records were lost or destroyed so there are no accounts of what went on in the abbey, other than there were 14 monks and an unknown number of novices at the time of dissolution in 1538.

Left in ruin, the land passed through many private hands until the 4th Earl of Scarbrough decided it needed revitalising to enhance his adjoining family seat at Sandbeck Park. Lord Scarborough enlisted the talents of Capability Brown.

With an astonishing disregard for history, Brown demolished buildings, built large earth mounds and turfed the whole site.[15] Until the end of the 19th century Roche Abbey remained buried beneath Brown's work and wooded parkland. But subsequent excavation in the 1920s returned Roche to its former splendour.

The polished rocks on the foreground witness that there were here an old glacier that slowly eroded the ground over the time.

Today remains only a mountain source of pure, crystal clear water going down to the valley through small brooks.

Near Lauzon lake, french Alps.

Favourites and comments are welcome. Thank you =)
