This photo of the Matterhorn taken on a cold evening in October conveys a mystic atmosphere. After the first snowfall, the Stelli Lake is slightly snow-covered but still ice-free. The long exposure captures the moving clouds above the mountain tops of the Valais Alps.

A brook carrying crystal-clear water runs through a mountain pasture that offers a panoramic view over the famous mountain peaks of the Bernese Oberland. Starting from left to right, the photo shows the last bit of daylight casting a fiery red glow on the mountain peaks Schreckhorn, Finsteraarhorn, Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau.

The first rays of the rising sun are touching the peaks of the Swiss Alps. This shot shows the rising sun just below the mountain top of the 3610-meter high Üsseren Barrhorn (left). It also offers a view stretching from the mountain peaks of the Bernese Oberland and the Aletsch area all the way to the Rhone Valley and the very first peaks of the Mischabel Mountain Range.

During our recent winter adventures , we beheld a sort of ice fortress .. appearing through the mist .

this was a mostly faerytale path , in the deep silence of winter ... full of ice , snow and frost .

Difficult conditions because all the water coming on me was turning solid in a few seconds .. on my clothes, bags, and gears ..

Probably the most beautiful mountain I have seen . Cerro Fitz Roy . 3405 m . Argentina .

Here in front - Classical vision .. From our night at Lago de Los Tres .

But this picture is special to me for various reasons:

I stayed many hours during the night looking at this amazing view .. It was a clear and pure night .. with full moon .. which creates this unhearthly light .

I have used a very wide opened lense ( 85 mm F1.2 L II ) to permit ISO 100 at night with 10 seconds exposure time .
which creates the vortex of moving clouds in the center .

Mixed with the sharpness of the rocks and the visible stars , I found it inspiring , . I hope you 'll enjoy this image.

Story :

Here is the Cerro Fitz Roy, and its vortex of steaming clouds, between two storms.

Also called Cherro Chalten, the smoking mountain... It seems so. It reaches 3405 meters high, and you probably recognize this shape because it is so well-known that you see it everywhere... But, the thing is... I think it is the craziest and most beautiful mountain I've ever seen... Actually, it is always changing... It is huge, colossal.

Here the framing is narrow, and sadly a bit classical, it is surrounded by some sort of fortress... Which we don't really spot here. All the violent disturbances coming in from the Pacific crash over here and overwhelm a bit all around in tumults to be remembered. It remains a mythic summit to climb, given the commitment and technique it requires...

Since I'm always looking for more evocative images while trying to disconnect from well-known visions... With this emblematic mountain right in front of me, I was somewhat trapped. If some more anonymous or unknown element allows creativity, a such famous summit, often photographed under this angle, makes it limited, I think.

The failure of the tour on the continental Hielo glacier which would have allowed us crazier alternative views... It quite blemished my moral for a while, that's true...

Yet we pretty well approached the mounts by sleeping this night at the Lago de Los Tres.

While climbing we suffered from an incredible wind, it shoved us sideways and violently threw snow all around... We did fear not to be able to plant the camp... And finally it all settled down. We were able to strengthen a wall by carrying many stones around the tent. It lasted at least two hours. In the meanwhile, the mountains were still steaming, it was quite fantastic to observe... The clouds come in from the back or appear at its level and rise on the summit's faces, it really looks like a volcano... And the cloud's speed is impressive. We could swear it was a real-time TimeLapse. I was a bit stressed, we had already seen that the wind here could move stones and also probably break the tent's lashes... But the night was exceptionally calm, still with those growing and swirling clouds among the summits.

Then came the full moon, which allowed so much brightness on this night picture.

Technically, I've used the 85 mm (proof that we aren't so far from the mountain itself), pretty crazy fixed focus because I can open to F/1.2 and keep a perfect detail.
That's how I've been able to capture the peak and its starlit firmament... At full aperture, ISO 100 and a ten seconds pose, which almost shows a move on the stars and allows this fascinating clouds movement too. We can feel the motion, in the spirals in the centre. I had to take about twenty shots to get the most beautiful moves...

We all spent a good part of the night outside, with -10°C... It was probably the most beautiful night. Completely alone in front of a scene out of time and out of the real world.

Bruarfoss
Iceland

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!

Kirkjufell
Iceland

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 :)

Lake Mackenzie
New Zealand

First of all, sorry for the lack of posting but Marianne, Charlotte and I were busy preparing and then finally enjoying our trip in New Zealand from which we just returned. About this shot.....

The location is 13km into the Routeburn track from the Divide in Fiordland National Park. The conditions when I started the trek could only be described as wet.......pouring rain, small rivers became streams to splash across along the trail, little visibility, a roaring 174m waterfall (Earland falls) requiring a detour at its base. All of us who arrived at the Lake Mackenzie hut that evening were sodden through despite our waterproof gear. As such, it was hard to get the motivation to sit lakeside at sunset, but the rain had stopped as we arrived so a little hope turned into smiles as this scene evolved over the still green waters of the lake. A moment to savour ! ps. Charlotte and Marianne were down in Milford sound enjoying similarly spectacular conditions!

A frozen icesheet over a flowing river in Fjadrargljufur canyon, Iceland. Wearing thermal fishing waders supplied little protection againt the bitter cold of the river. I'd long lost sensation in both my feet, but I was mesmerized by this unique scenery. The tall spires on both sides of the canyon, the icy environment so unfamiliar to an Israeli, the cristal clear river, all made this visit very special.

Fjadrargljufur will be one of many amazing location we'll visit on my upcoming 'Land of Ice' Iceland winter workshop, next January. If you want to experience and shoot these incredible landscapes, please check out the workshop page.

If you can't wait, check out my Iceland gallery here!

Another evening on the same beach at Crozon Island. To achieve this blending I have used 3 different exposures, assembled manually
This day the tied was exactly like I expected.. perfect to capture the waves in those lines of rocks

Durin my trip on Quiberon Island I have discovered during the afternoon a small beach totally enclosed in a cliff landscape. The angle of the sun in the evening should be ideal then I came back at the sunset to shoot this waterscape. It was not easy to get down to the small beach cause the path was not accessible at high tide then I have decided to get there at low tide and wait for the water to mount. At high tide the beach was reduced to some meters. I was lucky at the end to find a way to get back on the cliff !
To realize this image I have shooted three different exposures for the beach, the sky and the cliffs.

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.

We seldom get electric storms in the Western Cape, but usually on a few abnormally hot days in summer the big mushroom clouds form over the Cape mountains. On this day in January I decided to give chase and ended up somewhere between Touwsrivier and Calvinia. While there isn't a gallery for this specific area on my map, it's closest to the boland area.
