Marching Kings

Marching Kings - Fuji XT2,  183mm, f/7.1, 1/320s, ISO 1000.

A small group of King Penguins come marching down a slope at Gold Harbour in South Georgia Island.  I think they came down that slope more gracefully that I did.

Three Callas

Three Callas - Phase One XF, IQ3 100, 120mm, f/14, 1/40s, ISO 100.

I had some lovely light the spring morning I made this.  I was at the Calla Lily gully this past weekend and it looks like park services has come through and cleaned everything up, ready for the upcoming season.  Hope that the storm we are going to be tomorrow is the first of many for the bay area this season.

At Attention

At Attention - 1DX, 282mm, f/4, 1/1250s, ISO 3200.

A juvenile Leopard standing at attention, watches for potential prey.

Stretch - 5D4, 214mm, f/5, 1/250s, ISO 6400.

Seems all cats love to stretch.

Curious Look

Curious Look - A7r3, 560mm, f/8, 1/1250s, ISO 100.

I made many images of Emperor chicks but this is the only one with the head tilted slightly giving a look of curiosity, or maybe its attitude.

Desert Reclaims

Desert Reclaims - Alpa STC, IQ 180, 32mm, ~f/11, 4s, ISO 35.

I like the simplicity of this scene, made at Kolmanskop from my trip to Namibia in 2014.

Dragon's Eye

Dragon’s Eye - A7r3, 16mm, f/7.1, 1/15s, ISO 2500.

Unfortunately I was unable to secure a photographer tour of Upper Antelope Canyon when I was there last month, this was in spite of trying to book it almost two months in advance.  So I had to stick with shooting handheld (only the photography tours allow tripods) which meant high ISOs.  Still, our guide was fun, pointing out interesting combinations of shapes.  This one was probably my favorite, a Dragon’s eye.

Sunset over Horseshoe Bend

Sunset over Horseshoe Bend - A7r3, 16mm, f/22, 0.6s, ISO 100.

Those clouds you see ended up blocking any really nice sunset color in that direction, but I prefer this image with the sun in the frame anyway.

Antarctic Lenticular

Antarctic Lenticular - Phase One XF, IQ3 100, 110mm, f/9, 1/800s, ISO 100.
I’m always a sucker for lenticular clouds, but combine them with snow capped Antarctic mountains and its a scene I never get tired of looking at.

Pink Clouds Over The Wehlnadel

Pink Clouds Over The Wehlnadel - Alpa STC, IQ3 100, 32mm, f/11, 0.4s, ISO 100.

The pink colored clouds only lasted for a brief moment the morning this was made.  In addition to the imposing form of the Wehlnadel (the sandstone rock in the foreground), visible are the Bastei bridge and the tabletop mountain of Lilienstein in the distance.
