Gold and Blue

Gold and Blue - Phase One XF, IQ3 100, 105mm, f/9, 1/1000s, ISO 100.

This is what happens when you mix the warm, filtered morning sunlight with ice and glaciers in Antarctica.  Just another morning in Wilhelmina Bay.

Evening light and shadow

Evening light and shadow - RX1, 35mm, f/8, 1/40s, ISO 120.

One from the archives, from a road trip at the end of 2012.  We drove though Petrified Forest National Park in Arizona just as the sun was setting.

Painted Black Beach

Painted Black Beach - A7r3, 100mm, f/14, 2s, ISO 100.

The combination of long exposure and black sand in this image reminded me of a painting so when processing it, I chose a white balance that brought out the pastel colors.

Stranger - 5D3, 400mm, f/18, 1/320s, ISO 800.

Grey Go-away-bird

Grey Go-away-bird - 1DX, 560mm, f/10, 1/1000s, ISO 800.

The Grey Go-away-bird, also known as the Grey Lourie is native to the southern parts of Africa, including Botswana which is where I spotted this pair.

Frames - Alpa STC, IQ 180, 32mm, ISO 35.

One from the archives, made just oner 5 years ago in 2014 in Namibia.  There are many aspects of this composition I like, from the combination of colors (blue, green, orange-yellow) to the various themes around frames, the main door frame, the room in the back and the ‘frame’ made by the shadow being cast.

Poser - Leica S007, 47mm, f/11, 1/180s, ISO 100.

Its World Penguin Day today, so its an excuse to share a cute penguin photo.  This is apparently also the day that Adelie Penguins (not the King pictured here) start their migration north toward the sea ice to get access to food.

Ice & Cloud

Ice & Cloud - Leica SL, 112mm, f/7.1, 1/1250s, ISO 125.

Happy Earth Day with an image of one of the relatively unspoiled regions of our planet, Antarctica.  While relatively unspoiled, it is still affected by human activity, from exploitation of wildlife in the early part of last century to climate change which continues to today.
