Natural Arch - Springbrook National Park, QLD Australia.
Unfortunately the lighting wasn't anything special and had very little time to scout around for compositions as we were on our way back from the Gold Coast. I managed to get this shot of the glow worm cave. No glow worms this season, but it shows off the Natural Arch, top falls.
The first time I saw a snowy owl was when I was taking a walk in our family's territory. It was perched on a tree stump basking in the heat of the sun. It did not go away, we just look at each other for a moment and I talk to it softly not to scare it. I was really impressed by the immaculate feathers. In the end, I decided to leave and let him rest peacefully. This one is not the one I saw in the woods but I tried to make it look like it. About 25 hours of work. Hope that you'll like him.
This is old. Sorry it's small, it's the only scan I had of it...
I had a phase when I would paint from the Calstate Fullerton Arboretum once in awhile. Of all the paintings, this was the one I felt most inspired when I began, and the most disappointed when I finished. However, now I look at it, and I think it's the best out of all of them. The technique is not impressive, but I still remember the appreciation I had for the scene and how hard I tried to communicate that.. Our feelings and efforts are always what count. The appropriate skill will always follow in due time. Keep working in love. =]
I've had this sitting on my hard drive for the last 18 months as a fairly nondescript image that I very nearly deleted. It is only with improvements in my processing abilities over the last year that I've now been able to tease out quite a pleasing and remarkable image. I hope that you enjoy the work and thank you for visiting. Regards, Cluke
By a cold winter day, we were walking at sunset on the "Géant" Glacier, in Mont-Blanc mountains, french alps... The summit in the far, is the Dent du Géant (litteraly the Giant's Tooth ^^), a 4013m peak...

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)

A very different photo, compared to the images I usually submit. This photo was made on one of the most beautiful old neighboorhoods of Lisbon. It´s called Bairro Alto, and it´s a street photography dream, as long as you keep your eyes open and your camera ready.
