This is a photo of a perfect reflection of the Mont Blanc Massif in the ‘Lac de Chérsery”. On that evening in October, the water of the lake only remained completely calm for a few minutes offering me this tremendous photo opportunity. Starting from left to right, the photo allows one’s gaze to wander from the Auigelle Verte to the Grande Jurasse and main peak of the Mont Blanc.

Isle of Skye, UK
Autumn 2012

With the aim of shooting some Scottish Landscapes in dynamic weather I started my trip to Great Britain in mid-November and traveled for about 5 weeks trough the country. My journey took me from the south coast of England via Northumberland to Scotland. In Scotland I traveled from the Isle of Skye to Caithness, Torridon and Assynt. As expected the weather conditions were very contrary (snow, sun, storm, rain). The exposed position at the Atlantic Ocean is responsible for the unpredictable weather in western Scotland. Often it’s possible to experience several seasons within one day. Although it often wasn’t very easy to keep my camera dry, I was rewarded with a variety of spectacular sunrises and sunsets.

In the second part of my UK-series 2013, I present the images of the Isle of Skye. The fascinating hills and the impressive coastline are typical for the Scottish landscape. The weather was as expected at the end of November – very rough. During my ten-day stay there was no day without rain and storm. But in the rare minutes when the sun showed the landscape turned into a fairy tale world and I was spectacular rewarded for the long rainy waiting times. I'll upload them here on DA during the next days. English descriptions and more shoots will follow soon!

Wester Ross, UK
Winter 2012

With the aim of shooting some Scottish Landscapes in dynamic weather I started my trip to Great Britain in mid-November and traveled for about 5 weeks trough the country. My journey took me from the south coast of England via Northumberland to Scotland. In Scotland I traveled from the Isle of Skye to Caithness, Torridon and Assynt. As expected the weather conditions were very contrary (snow, sun, storm, rain). The exposed position at the Atlantic Ocean is responsible for the unpredictable weather in western Scotland. Often it’s possible to experience several seasons within one day. Although it often wasn’t very easy to keep my camera dry, I was rewarded with a variety of spectacular sunrises and sunsets.

In early December winter comes to northern Scotland. Ice covered the countless lakes and the frequently showers turn into snowfall. In the last part of my UK series I show the shots from Wester Ross. The photos were taken during several hikes in the spectacular mountainous regions An Teallach and Torridon. I'll upload them here on DA during the next days. English descriptions and more shoots will follow soon!

Alftavatn
Iceland

This scene is what greets the hiker walking on the Laugavegur trail's 2nd day. After the first day of walking through fumaroles and rhyolite mountains, passing one ridge after another, this final one leads to one of the most incredible scenes I can remember. It's cliche to say that it reminds me of Rohan, but I can't think of a more suitable place other than perhaps in New Zealand where the movies were actually filmed. This pano suffers from quite a few imperfections regarding lens flare but for the purpose of sharing a grand scene, I think that is less important. I hope this image gives you at least some sense of the wonder Marianne and I did as we sat there and enjoyed our lunch break before descending to the river crossing before reaching Alftavatn hut (at the lake visible in the scene)

Hanson Bay
Kangaroo Island

This was a picture taken just before dawn on a memorable morning at Hanson Bay on the South coast of Kangaroo Island. The morning started off with thick fog which eventually lifted. The clouds were grey and gradually lit crimson while the sea spray and fog also lifted. All the while, shadows across the dunes were a striking feature of the foreground.

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

The focus of my trip to Iceland was to photograph a view over Alftavatn that I had missed on my previous visit to the area the year before due to bad weather. My plan was to hike across a ridge over a couple of days to give myself the best
change of seeing the view in good light. Although I didn’t get a sunrise or sunset in the 4 opportunities I had, I did get a fair share of excellent visibility and some nice light too. This shot was taken not far from my first night's camp. Although it is only a mile from the Laugavegur, Iceland's most famous hiking trail, I saw absolutely no one for 2 and a bit days, the solitude was great. The final image is a whopping 350 megapixels from 24 images shot in 2 rows of 12 vertical frames.

Craig Cwm Sere connects Pen y Fan and Cribyn (the central peak). Its a very popular route for walkers and from Pen Y fan the view of the ridge line is excellent.
The colours of these altocumulus just before sunrise were absolutely fantastic. I was jumping for joy when they started to glow and I knew I was in for something special. Around sunrise the light changes dramatically. With the sun below the horizon in this image the snow takes on the blue of the sky above. Colour contrast is something I constantly seek in my photography (I could never shoot Black and White!) and never is it better than under a sky like this.

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....

Our visit to Grundarfjörður, the town closest to Pyramid Mountian, wasn't an easy one. Driving with a terrible rental 4X4 on the icy roads was hardly a treat, but to top it, we had a snow blizzard for an entire day, which wasn't at all productive.
Nevertheless, we had our shot at this thing of beauty. On one evening, the wind was slow, and the water still enough to allow this reflection. Some faint color from the sunset behind lit the clouds, and I went for it.

If you wish to experience and shoot this magical place, among many other incredible sceneries, you're welcome to check out my upcoming 'Land of Ice' Iceland winter workshop taking place January 2013.
The workshop is now completely sold out. You can still register to the waiting list though, and next year's workshop will be announced soon.

The frozen lagoon in front of Breiðamerkurjökull glacier was an amazing place to visit. Endless fields of blue icebergs, some as big as a house, assumed countless forms and triggered everyone's imagination. The soft morning sun colored the mountaintops red, to complement the scene.

The dead sea offers an endless variety of features. That day we had a rare case of fantastic clouds, together with a waterline that was reaching just the right hight (the sea is declining in an alarming rate) to join these slabs of salt.
May be it's my crazy imagination again, but I'm seeing a woman on the right. As for the left slab - no idea! Does anyone have any clue? :)
The rising sun cooperated as well, its rays protruding between the clouds, causing me to gaze long minutes at the scene, feeling just a bit delirious...

Morning light on the south face of Mont Blanc in Alps, after a cold night near this unnamed lake...
Unfortunately, the sky was a bit empty, with no clouds, but there was also no wind so I could get this reflection...

From the Jökulsárlón beach in Iceland, in Septembre 2010...
I loved the warm tones of the sunrise, contrasting the cold, transparent ice block from the Vatnajökull icefield...

An amazing area for the landscape photographer... everywhere, if you're lucky enough to have some wind the days before your visit, you can admire hundreds of ice blocks of every blue colors and transparency abandoned by the sea on the black sand...

Hello,

This is a picture from my last trip in Patagonia... We were here in the deep valley of Rio Electrico, near the roofs of mount Fitz Roy. We were planning to reach the circo de Los Altares on the Hielo Continental icefield.

This morning we ad an amazing sunrise on this place called "La Playita", on the shore of Lago Electrico. The weather was amazingly quite, with no wind. Some really rare conditions in this area. These conditions offered us a great reflection of the Fitz Roy peak, in the morning glow...

These mountains are really different from what we know in France with the Alps... they're really impressive and I'll keep great remembers of this trip.

This might be my favorite image so far of 2012.

I love the way the image came out but the experience is what puts it at or near the top of the list.

I was deep in this canyon for most of the day but I could see the wispy clouds hanging high in the atmosphere, I was trying to think of a shot where I could capitalize on the color of the clouds even down in the canyon. A friend of mine had taken a shot here during mid-day on his trip into the canyon a year prior and earlier in the day I noticed how the light was hitting under this enormous cliff. I came back to the spot at sunset, and right on cue the sky lit up, illuminating the underside of this staggering cliff with soft light providing the unique conditions for the image I was hoping for.

An image created almost exactly two years ago on what is now my most productive photography sunrise. I took this in Arches National Park and by this point of the morning I had already gotten some images I thought would be unique, in a frantic search to capitalize on these amazing conditions, I scrambled to the top of a rock out crop and saw these beautiful banks of rolling fog from a birds eye view.

Some of my older watchers may recognize this image, I posted a few years ago but I removed it because I wasn't happy with the processing. I dug this out and reworked it using luminosity masks and was happy with the improvements.

I'm still watching the weather in the Moab area, if we get a big snow-storm I'll get down there for sure to capture a handful of shots I've been scouting on my recent trips... so on that note lets hope for snow!

Happy weekend everyone and don't forget to "like" my facebook page for trip updates, photo tips, and anything else I find interesting. I appreciate the support!

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...

Myself and Shem Compion went on a 5 day trip to Mpumalanga in January to explore the Africa's 2nd largest Canyon. One of Shem’s friend’s told us about this place on the other side of the Canyon that no one ever sees. After a long drive along unmarked and overgrown roads we got a concrete pass that quickly ascended through the tropical forest mist-belt and arrived atop Mariepskop in misty weather. We drove around and the scenery was a mix of mossy vegetation, military hardware and views of the lowveld that stretched forever.When it cleared occasionally we saw that there was a storm cloud over the main escarpment with a nice high-cloud anvil that would make for a a great sunset. We parked and decided to try and get to the escarpment edge, but the terrain of rock stacks and dense vegetation proved impossible to negotiate. We got about 100m from the road, made a u-turn and about 45 minutes later we were back at the car, exhausted and scratched all over. Using an Ipad and google earth we determined where the edge was closest to the road, drove there and found a seldom used track leading to the cliff edge. In front of us lay the back side of the three rondavels and the sun was about 20 minutes from reaching the gap in the clouds. We scouted for compositions, set up and waited for the light. As the first beams burst out below the clouds and creeped over the far hills the adrenaline started pumping (only landscape photographers can get an adrenaline rush from sunsets!). As the sun dipped below the horizon, the mist closed in and we headed back to car with a very big smile on our faces.
