Arabesque

Arabesque - Leica M9, 21 SEM, ~f/3.4, 1/30s, ISO 2500
I'm getting a little tired with my usual nature photos so time for something very different.  This was on a ceiling in the Alcázar of Seville, a royal palace in Spain.  I particular love the Arabesque form of art with its intricate geometric shapes, repeated patterns and scrolling lines.

Waiting

Waiting - Leica M9, 35, ~f/6.7, 1/125s, ISO 160
Extras sit and wait for the scene to get set up on a movie shoot in Carmona, Spain.  I was once an extra in a movie and one of the things that surprised me was just how much time people spent sitting around waiting.  In my case, it was about 8 or 10 hours on the set to shoot about a half a dozen takes of two scenes.  In this case, I had no idea as we were just walking through the streets of Carmona and through this shoot.

King Penguins, St. Andrew's Bay

King Penguins, St. Andrew's Bay - 5D3, 400 IS II, f/4, 1/5000s, ISO 400
Most people think that one should go to Antarctica to see penguins, but its actually South Georgia Island where you get a variety of them and can get pretty close on land.

Point Lobos

Point Lobos - Leica S, 30-90 @ 59mm, f/8, 1/500s, ISO 100
My older daughter Maya and I drove out to Point Lobos this morning for a little father/daughter hike/photo shoot.  We walked a couple of the trails and saw a deer.  Maya was most interested by all the middens she saw, stopping many times to photograph them.

Eagle Falls at Sunrise

Eagle Falls at Sunrise - Canon 5D2, 24 TS-E, f/14, 3.2s, ISO 100
The first light of the day lights up Eagle Falls, on the shores of Lake Tahoe.  I made this image in June of 2011, stopping off in the area for a morning shoot on my way back from Grand Teton.  The combination of very warm morning light and the graduated filters I was using makes the image very warm.  The warmest light was in the first 1 minute of the sun coming up from the other side and though it doesn't light up the entire waterfall evenly it was better to make the image then than to wait as even just a few minutes later the light had cooled off considerably.

Hollow Falls

Hollow Falls - Leica S2, 30mm, f/16, 1.5s, ISO 160
This is Hollow Falls at the North Table Mountain Ecological Reserve in California.  I haven't had the chance to return there since 2012 but that one hike after a storm was one of the most productive for me in terms of waterfalls.

Big Sky Country

Big Sky Country - Fuji XE-1, 14mm, f/8, 1/600s, ISO 200
I figured that there was a good reason Montana was called "big sky country" but it wasn't until I drove through the state last summer that I experienced just how incredible it was.
