Lazy Afternoon

Lazy Afternoon - 1DX, 560mm, f/5.6, 1/640s, ISO 640.

I think I want to spend the afternoon just chillin’ like this Leopard.

Strolling Giraffe

Strolling Giraffe - 1D4, 70mm, f/7.1, 1/800s, ISO 200.

Its been too long since visiting Africa, starting to feel the itch to go but I probably won’t be able to swing it for a good while yet.  Until then, I just have to keep going back and looking at and working on images from past trips like this one from the Serengeti.

The Kamenice

The Kamenice - Alpa STC, IQ3 100, 32mm, f/11, 1s, ISO 50.

The Kamenice gorge, carved by the Kamenice river is a great place for a hike in northwestern Czech Republic with the bonus of dense vegetation which makes for wonderful photography.

Snow Capped Hills

Snow Capped Hills - A7r3, 125mm, f/9, 1/200s, ISO 100.

I like the gentle lines and subtle tones of snow capped hills.

Possession Bay Beach

Possession Bay Beach - Leica SL, 90mm, f/6.3, 1/1000s, ISO 400.

A group pf King Penguins just arrived on this beach at Possession Bay, South Georgia Island.  It started snowing lightly during that zodiac ride which was a nice experience but we were unable to make a landing due to fur seals.

Late Afternoon Rest

Late Afternoon Rest - 1DX, 560mm, f/5.6, 1/400s, ISO 4000.

Today is International Cheetah Day!  While their conservation status is Vulnerable, their population is decreasing and with only about 7000 cheetah left (as of 2017), extinction is a real danger.

Wall of Water

Wall of Water - A7r3, 370mm, f/14, 0.4s, ISO 100.

Another image from Iceland this time from Hraunfossar and while the temptation was high to pull back and go grander especially with the little bit of rainbow on the right, what I really liked was how the water sheet was falling on that slanted rock ledge, hence the tighter framing.

Glacial Remains

Glacial Remains - Phase One XF, IQ3 100, 50mm, f/11, 2s, ISO 50.

Not all images of Iceland need to be dramatic landscapes of waterfalls or ice beaches.  This is part of the Svínafellsjökull glacial lagoon which is one of the tongues of the massive Vatnajökull ice sheet.  I found the muddy yellow colors of the lagoon to be funky.

Coastal Pools


Coastal Pools - Alpa STC, IQ180, 32mm, ~f/11, 1/8s, ISO 35.

I made this on the Isle of Lewis and Harris on a photographic trip to Scotland back in 2015.  I had already worked on an image from that trip in black & white but for this oneI liked the little bit of color contrast between the blue skies and the yellow rocks.

Dots on Ice

Dots on Ice - Leica SL, 100mm, f/9, 1/640s, ISO 320.

I loved scenes like this in Antarctica, though my biggest regret was not making this image with the Phase One XF and IQ3 100 system I had with me.  Those little black dots in the center on the iceberg are penguins and had I captured it with a higher resolution sensor, on a gigantic print they would be clearly resolved as Penguins.  Oh well, just gotta go back I guess :)
