Out of the Bushes

Out of the Bushes - 1DX, 200mm, f/5.6, 1/400s, ISO 800.

I didn’t even know I had taken this image until I went back in Lightroom to images from my Botswana trip in 2013.  I love going back and finding new images to work on.

Snow Covered Geothermal Field

Snow Covered Geothermal Field - Alpa TC, IQ3 100, 35mm, f/11, 1/4s, ISO 50.

I love the juxtaposition of snow and a the heat of an active geothermal field.

Cliff's Edge

Cliff’s Edge - Phase One XF, IQ3 100, 40mm, f/14, 1/4s, ISO 50.

I have a fear of heights, which can be challenge for a landscape photographer and many grand scenes come at being perched at the edge of a cliff, much like this one.  The place I was standing upon was large and stable so I knew that it was a perfect safe and fine place to photograph, but the fear is always there, just have to grit through it.

Iceberg and Seals

Iceberg and Seals - Leica S 007, 38mm, f/8, 1/500s, ISO 200.

A herd of seals by and iceberg near Portal Point in Charlotte Bay.

Bird on Ice

Bird on Ice - Phase One XF, IQ3 100, 115mm, f/14, 4s, ISO 50.

An otherwise “me too” image of ice at the Jokulsarlon, the thing that redeems this photo is the little bird perched on the ice.  Its something lost on small images on social media but is the kind of detail I like seeing in big prints.

Clarence Island and Tabular Iceberg

Clarence Island and Tabular Iceberg - Leica SL, 182mm, f/7.1, 1/2000s, ISO 250.

One is an un-movable island, the other a tabular iceberg very much on the move.

Small Waterfall in Hraunfossar

Small Waterfall in Hraunfossar

Hraunfossar (or Lava Falls) is a series of waterfalls formed from streams flowing over a lava field and while there are more dramatic waterfalls here, I really liked picking out the little ones for a more intimate landscape.

Morning After Storm

Morning After Storm - Alpa STC, IQ180, 32mm, ~f/11, ISO 35.

Its been years since I went photographing in Yosemite and I ran across this image I hadn’t previously worked on from over 5 years ago.  It was the spring of 2013 and was memorable because we were lucky enough to be there at just the right time to see a storm clearing in the valley, giving all kinds of dramatic clouds.

Enter with Caution

Enter with Caution - Alpa TC, IQ3 100, 23mm, f/11, 1/20s, ISO 50.
One more from that crazy cool ice cave earlier this year, this time from the entrance with a view into the cave.  I love those icicles hanging from the entrance of the ceiling, we moved quickly through that part.
