Quite a tricky one. This isn´t a long exposure, don´t be surprised, sometimes I do quick exposures too! :-) Anyway, the sun was extremely strong, and even with 5 stop reduction for the sky I couldn´t manage to properly expose the intense sun. A cloudy day would have worked wonders here. Still, even though the sun is a bit overpowering, in the end it faithfully transmits the light intensity of that day, so I decided to publish it. One more, rules are meant to be broken.

Angel Explosion


And while I was looking to the lighthouse in the infinity peer, an angel exploded right in front of me. Thousands of feathers flew towards the coast, and covered the earth. They were streaked with glowing blood, and in each of them a message:

"Even while looking from above, this is too much to handle"

Quite a difficult shot to expose. Had to use a 3 stop soft ND Grad filter (Hitech), overlaying a part of the dark portion of the filter over the water, to control the exposure. I also used a 4 stop non-grad ND to achieve the long exposure.

"The Natural Networks - Part II" | Vila Nova de Milfontes, Portugal

"Entangled in the endless stream of thoughts, mirrored by the natural networks of the Earth, anger subsides and serenity finally prevails."

Shot during the last day of a wonderful vacation in Vila Nova de Milfontes, in September 2012. Seven days filled with light seeking and wild beaches. This specific beach wasn't chosen until the last day, when Nature greeted us with a visual feast that I still can remember as if it happened yesterday. The light acted as a magnet during that afternoon end, and dozens of people rushed to see the gorgeous sunset. I feel blessed for having witnessed this. Needless to say that this is one of the most fantastic beaches I've ever visited.

Stilt fishermen on the south-western shore of Sri Lanka, near Galle, between Ahangama and Weligama.

Stilt fishermen have an interesting way of catching fish. They perch wooden poles in the shallow waters near the coast, they walk or swim to those poles every day, climb on the benches and stand there for hours to catch fish by casting out their lines. Sometimes their feet get seriously wounded by the reef rocks.

Although tips from tourists became the rule of the game, I had the impression they still earn their lives thru fishing.

after 1.5 miles and 2000 feet of elevation gain of misty fog and wildflowers blooming..i arrived to this spot.unfortunately i took too many pictures of wildflowers and the sun had just crested the hills..blasting the main drop with harshness. decided to make the trek up to Van Trump Park above the falls to look out from the top. well the snow covered and hid the trail probably..50 yards from the falls! did make it too the top..making my own path. and wow..what a gorgeous area..and all to myself :) spent some time making my way through the snow to upper comet falls for a gander..unfortunately the glacier of Mt Rainier could not be seen due to clouds..saw just a glimpse.


by the time i had made it to the top of the falls..the clouds had made there way up the mountain and totally obstructed the views :/ did stand on the rim and could see the river after the drop but vertigo set in and decided to step back just a tad.


did try to wait out the rising clouds but they just became thicker and thicker. did make friends with some whistle pigs before i made the journey back down. i arrived back at this spot and the clouds had sat just perfectly for me :)

traveling around the mountain my decision to not wait out the clouds was wise..one cloud sat on this area through the evening.


thanks for following me on my hike and day at mt rainier..hope you enjoyed :D

oh yeah..this is Comet Falls, Mt Rainier, WA :D

Edit~

Re-Process and a whole hundred pixels bigger!




Common questions: 

Bigger?

No, sorry!



Is it real?

Yes. 

There are two versions of this photo. One that is longer and this one. I THOUGHT they were the same photo but apparently they are not. Either only the long one is a stitch, or they both are (I usually do 2-3 sweeps, especially for night time panoramas) and I suspect different software parameters partly played a role in the difference (I may have stitched only 2-3 images for one and 3-5 for the other. Maybe when I dig deep enough into my photo backups I will uncover the exact truth, because the truth right now is I just don't know!

I used a tripod and cable release. The EXIF data is missing because I now tend to save in .PNG format for web. If you have any questions about the processing or shooting techniques used here, ask!

The other version is now posted. I will link it here eventually. The NR is a little strong on the other version which partly contributes to the difference but you can see big differences between the two especially in some of the aurora shapes. 

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 protien called rhodopsin begins to accumulate in the rods of your eye, put simply. After about 40 minutes it reaches its peak and could be compared 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.

Marianne and I can't wait until our next field trip to North Island with the kids in October this year. Hopefully we'll be able to combine family activity with some landscape photography in between. This picture reminds me of the places we won't be going with kids for some time. At the time, we had been trying to take pictures in the blowing gale and ended up having to strategically park the car so that we could take shelter from the wind in the lee of the car while shooting a few frames off at this rapidly shifting light (from left to right of image)[Prints and Tutorials] [Facebook] [500px] [Flickr]

A brief but powerful display of the Northern Lights dances in a night sky dotted with clouds above the Missouri River on the South Dakota/ Nebraska border. I had almost given up to head home for the night when this last final surge of aurora broke into beautiful multicolored pillars and bands that danced in the night sky! Probably the best display of the aurora borealis I've seen so far!

100 meters behind this beautiful lake is the road that goes over Sørkjosen mountain ( Troms, Northern Norway), so this is quite an easy place to access.

I shot this image not long after I had shot "La vie est belle", this is when the sky has gone proper dark it is one shot of many in a timelapse sequence a friend and I made called  "Sixth Element" -> vimeo.com/79902085

It is one of the coolest things I've ever seen. There is nothing to understand the tremendous scale of this cave, but consider the fact that I was able to stand in the little crack between the two lighter pieces of ice seen in the upper middle of the photo. The cave itself is 4-5 floors high, and probably 30-40 meters deep. The ice is indeed blue. Rarely do you ever get a chance to get close to something like this, and it's completely overwhelming.

I can go on and on about the crazy weird types of ice and snow around there. The snow is embedded with the finest silt, and isn't slippery. The red parts are partially due to watermelon snow (an algae). There are solid blocks of ice embedded with rocks like chocolate chip cookies. There is extremely fine silt, which is like quicksand if you step in it. There are icebergs floating in the melt pool just to the right of the visible area. The concentration of amazing stuff per unit area is off the charts.

Before anyone says "cool tornado" I want to make mention that this is not a tornado photo. What you see in the distance is a rain/hail shaft from a storm that was south of the Campo Colorado tornado.

This image was taken as I was just starting to hit the storm clouds that were a distant part of the tornado storm. I still had a good 15 miles to travel before seeing the funnel emerge from the cloud base off to my distant right and then another 30 miles after that to actually reach the storm.

This was the moment that I realized that these clouds might just do something. The orange glow along the horizon in mid-day sun was a huge clue. Lets just say that from this point on I might have broken a speed law or two…
