I know this shot is very similar in composition to one of my other recent uploads, however slightly different processing on this one. I decided to upload both to get your opinions, to find out which would be most popular among the public.

I also forgot to mention the story behind this photo. I was shooting long exposures obviously when I felt this sudden burning feeling around my leg, I looked down and to my surprise were 7 bluebottle jellyfish stinging the hell out of my leg. I basically had two choices, either keep shooting and deal with the pain, or call it quits and miss the photos I have been wanting to get for a long time. I chose option A, and I'm very glad I stuck this one out. Anyway, that explains the title of this image. Hope you enjoy it, as much as I didn't enjoy taking it :giggle:

Same location as 'Surreal Wonderland' [link] except this time a shorter exposure during twilight. The colours were too good not to post.

Appearance of Light

First day of winter by the beach

Winter came today.

Driving in horrifyingly slippery conditions was a test, but I arrived at the beach and started looking around. I was really drawn to the early thin layer of ice which reflected the light beautifully. All those textures just lighting up.

I set up at this particular location and waited for the sun to get low. Thankfully, there was an open slit in the clouds that allowed the "sunstar" to appear.

Cloned out a flare in this one. Adjusted barrel distortion as best as possible. Selective curves adjustment. Vibrance and clarity increase. Saturation gain. Sharpened for web.

EDIT: I forgot to mention that this is a two shot blend using this technique with a 1/10 second and a 1/30 second exposure (for the sky). EXIF info shows the slowest exposure.

Thanks for looking.

A personal favorite of mine from many years ago. I captured this scene in 2008 on an amazing spring day along the False Bay coastline. I had just returned from a 3 day trip to the Cedarberg and I was absolutely exhausted. The clouds looked amazing over False Bay so I headed out to a spot I had scouted a few weeks earlier. The light played along and it turned out to be an amazing sunset.

Unluckily I was still shooting with a 40D and a Sigma 10-20mm so despite it being perfectly in focus, there's little detail for printing compared to a full frame image.

Myself and :iconshem-inja: just got back from a 5 day trip to the Blyde River Canyon in Mpumalanga. The weather was mostly overcast, but it produced some dramatic conditions. This is the world's 3rd largest canyon after the Grand Canyon in the U.S and the Fish River Canyon in Namibia.

I leave on Friday for the Kalahari and the plan was supposed to be Kalahari-Richtersveld-Namibia, but there has been an abnormal amount of rain in the Nam so I'm skipping the Richtersveld and going directly to Namibia!

I'll keep you updated as the trip goes along!

I took this on christmas eve right in front of the family house in Jeffreys Bay. Words can't describe how stuffed I was. I put the tripod in the water line and just stood in that one place, shooting the whole sunset and trying to figure out why I had 3 servings of trifle.

You can purchase high quality prints of this photo in my website Wildscapes

Even if the sun is not present any more in the sky, his lights reflect on the distant high altitude clouds, providing this very particular and enchanting lighting for a few instants. To complete the scene, the sky displays an interesting variety of colors from blue to orange going through cyan, pink and yellow. This photo was taken in the " Monts-Dore " mountains, France.

Favourites and comments are appreciated, thank you =)

Arriving at night, the conditions that greeted us on our first morning in Inverpolly/Assynt certainly weren't welcoming but there was plenty of drama. The prevalent rock type of the area is Torridonian sandstone, it formed more than a billion years ago.

After outdriving and shooting a monster stormcell in the Tsaucheb valley all afternoon, the storm headed Southwards into the dune sea just a few km short of the Sossusvlei 4x2 parking lot and I headed into the cracked pans to get ready for sunset. The magical recipe of geographical circumstances at Sossus did what I knew it would and the sun dipped in below the cloud cover briefly illuminating the dunes in blood-red light and painting a partial rainbow in the storm. I've experienced a lot of amazing sunsets in my life, but the location of this was one was just too good to be true and I all I could utter was a few laughs of disbelief.

Port Willunga
South Australia

Sometimes, when you drive out in hope of a good dawn in the darkness, you just get lucky. This morning was one of those days when grey skies lit up for a few minutes including a very truncated rainbow in the distance. On a cold wet winter morning, I had this place all to myself to appreciate and it reminded me that no matter how many times you visit the same spot , it is never the same! It probably takes some imagination to see a dragon churning the waters but I think I can see one :P

Great Falls National Park, VA. This is a location along the Potomac I have been waiting to capture for many years. Finally got the right combination of water level, clouds and light to make it happen. Taken on Sunday morning at sunrise.

"Remember, you are this universe
and this universe is you."


- Creek poet Joy Harjo




To answer a few common requests/questions :)

Can I post a bigger size?

Done. upped to 1000px from 700px


Is it real?

Yes! The EXIF data is available lower right. DSLR, tripod, cable release, etc.

For some strange reason there are two versions of this photo. One that is long - wider than 1:2, and this one. They are both the same photo but I have no idea how I ended up with one that is long and one that is much shorter! It is a stitch of a few images but I don't remember making two attempts, or how I ended up with the difference. Friggen weird! Ah well, a anomaly that works well for me! May release the panoramic version at a later time.

Where is this?

About 40km from a small town called Fort Smith near the Alberta/Northwest Territories border. The waterscape is a bend of the gargantuan Slave River (a mile across on average), which runs from mid Alberta all the way into the Great Slave Lake.

The water empties from the Slave Lake and becomes the Mackenzie River, feeding into more separate lakes and rivers and underground waterways than you might imagine. Most of Canada's water, and a large portion of the worlds fresh water, can be found in this region and Canada's north in general. The Mackenzie continues northward, where it empties out into the Arctic Ocean.

The waterscape is not an ocean =P A few have made the mistake of thinking the shapes near the shore are waves. If you look closely you can see cracks in the "waves." It is just irregular shapes created on the spring ice because our melt takes several months.

Are there really that many (viewable) stars where I live in the night sky?

Technically, for the most part, yes. This photo is by my estimate effectively one stop brighter than visible with the naked eye. In complete darkness (in the absence of light from the blue spectrum), a compound called rhodopsin begins to accumulate in the rods of your eyeball. After about 40 minutes it reaches its peak and is similar to raising the ISO sensitivity of a camera. This process is called dark adapting your eyes.

Combined with fully dilated pupils, the swath of the milky way and thousands of stars are visible. It is absolutely, insanely beautiful. I have been fascinated with it since I was young. I can't wait to buy a deep sky telescope.

Wind spiraled around this cirque while the lake froze, trapping waves at their crest.

The ice was only about 2 inches thick, but my friend assured me that it was enough to hold us. I wasn't so sure though when pings and other noises like sonar started echoing under us. Then my friend slipped and cracked the ice and his head. Luckily, the ice didn't give!

This is a composite of 7 f 2.8 exposures. Like my previous aurora image, this is one exposure for the aurora and mountains and 6 at different focal points for the foreground blended in post.

Water freezes to the edge of this northern lake. Then the water level falls, causing the ice to be suspended in air. The cycle repeats, leaving the icicles hanging and fragile.

I cannot touch the ice or my photo will fracture. Like a cat, I sneak out on all fours, balancing on needle rocks that puncture my jacket. Elbows cut, down feathers escape from my sleeves.

The aurora starts as a single jade beam in the north, hanging across the sky, immobile, alien.

The beam, as a conductor, commands stillness. Slowly, it separates into two - the conductor raises his arms. He taps the podium - a shudder, a ripple traces the beam and my spine.

Two more beams now. Texture forms as a constant undulation with the conductor’s building movements.

Then, abruptly, the Maestro throws his arms wide and the beam explodes, covering the sky. Greens writhe and coil; purple licks the edges. Whirlpools tumble overhead. The souls of the mountain gods flame on the horizon.

The aurora fractures as diamonds through breeze-blown tears. I am sad I cannot see the whole sky at once.

Technique: To shoot the foreground in this low light, I took eleven 30 second exposures @ 2.8 iso 1000, all focused at different points to achieve full depth. Then I shot the sky at 6 seconds at iso 4000. I shot the sky faster to retain texture in the aurora.

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.

This was captured a couple of years ago at the lovely Turimetta Beach. I got down nice and low against the side of the rock to the right in order to capture those fantastic sand patterns. I didnt mind the sky was slightly blown out as I felt it added something to the shot.
