Sugar Coated

Just skimming through some older images and this one caught my eye. Shot during Fall 2009.

I actually bumped into well known U.K Landscape Photographer David Noton and his wife Wendy on this particular morning as they were shooting the same snow covered Aspen grove.

Ethereal

I managed to get up to Nambung National Park a couple of weeks ago to shoot the Pinnacles. I arrived mid afternoon and spent a considerable amount of time wondering around waiting for the sun to get a little closer to the horizon. The few scattered clouds that were around managed to clear by the time the sun went down so i decided to make the most of a clear sky and shoot this other-worldly landscape under the stars.

The Pinnacles is a great place to star gaze when the conditions are right.

The is a blend of two exposures, two hours apart. One for the land while there was still a hint of light in the sky to the west and the second when the milky way became clearly visible in the night sky and positioned within frame.

…..Wordpress has made the image appear a little funky but I will leave it for time being


Opal Range – Kananaskis Country – Canada

PLAN B

Late September I met up with Canadian Landscape Photographer Mike Isaak to shoot some of the fall colours around the banff/kananaskis area. We met up in the evening and decided to base ourselves at the Aspen lined Wedge Pond as the colour was at its peak and we thought it would be a good spot to start the morning shoot. Although the wind was howling down the valley we thought we would stick with this location and see how conditions were in the morning.

After a great nights sleep in the back of my rental van (my van was written off. Story to come) I awoke Mike from his slumber in the boot of his car. It was about 40 minutes before sunrise and the wind was still blowing a gail. The windy conditions were not desirable for this particular location so with decided to come up with a plan b. We could see that the clouds in the east were starting to become under lit  with pink hues so we quickly headed for another location I had in mind.  After a 20min drive down the valley we came to Spillway Lake. The Lake was protected from the wind and the sky was continuing to light up behind the Opal Range. With everything coming together we decided to set up and watch things unfold.

Windswept – Lancelin Dunes -Western Australia

Hey everyone, I hope all is well.

Well a few weeks ago I headed up to Lancelin for the evening as conditions were looking promising. This was the first time I had shot an Australian Landscape for quite some time and it felt good to get out there. I scouted the dunes looking for decent lines and compositions, but with the light fading I had to work quickly. I did come away with a few different images but this particular one I thought would suit black and white.

A location such as this is forever changing so you don’t know exactly what you will come away with. I have been back there since and the lines and curves of the dunes were completely different to the previous visit.
