This image was taken on the second morning of our trip down the Mid North Coast to Forster. Unfortunately the conditions for this trip weren't as I hoped, but I managed to capture this stunning burst of sunrise colour. This is a 200 second exposure just as the sun kissed the horizon and rose above the clouds. I think this is probably the best shot from the trip. Fingers crossed next visit will reward me with more surreal conditions like this.
This small waterfall is a little of the usual tourist route. It can be found a few kilometers off the main road heading toward the popular tourist attractions of Geysir and Gullfoss in the Southwest of Iceland. The most striking aspect of this waterfall was the long fissure through which it runs its blue streams. The water itself feels warm due to submerged geothermal activity which gives rise to slight steaming effect the water has. In the cold of Iceland, it's definitely yet another surreal sight to savour!
Sorry for the prolonged absence from dA. Life has been incredible busy of late with weddings, home renovations, work publications, and of course, Charlotte taking up most of my time. I've recently acquired a 5dmk3 and hope to revisit Iceland in winter to take high iso images of aurora in particular. This one was taken during our 2010 trip which is filled with fond memories.
Marianne and I will be heading off to New Zealand for 3 weeks at the end of April and we can't wait to test out the new camera's abilities! Happy Easter everyone
This shot was taken just before our penultimate weekend in Iceland in 2010. The whole night had been washed out with rain and most of the morning. But toward the end of the stormy weather, the sun peeked through the clouds giving rise to this rainbow which lasted for several hours as we made our way with Orvar to Jokulsarlon. This specific mountain is located in the south east of Iceland nearing the approach to Skaftafell National Park.
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!
An astounding ice pattern among thousands of others we saw in a single, awesome afternoon in Breišamerkurjökull, Iceland.

Rzadko robię zdjęcia w takim świetle ale ten widok jest urzekający! Żałuję że nie wróciłem w to miejsce o innej porze dnia, ale nic straconego, całe życie przede mną. Na pewno wiele razy będę tam stał, czekając na ten właściwy moment i światło. ---------------- I rarely take pictures in this light, but this view was captivating! I regret that I did not go back to this place at different times of day, but nothing is lost, whole life ahead of me. Certainly many times I will stood there and waited for the right moment and light.
