Aurora dances over a frozen house in the far north of Sweden. With temperatures down as low as -40C its not surprising the house is completely encrusted in ice. The challenge was getting to this house through well over a metre of snow!
I'm leading a workshop in early May in Micheldever Wood to capture the incredible display of bluebells. There are also a few places remaining on tours to the USA including the Deserts of the SW and Stormchasing! Please see my profile for links to my website for more information.
In the centre of Iceland lies a region full of geothermal craters and pools. After arriving here to photograph this at sunset, my friend and I decedied to hang around a few hours in hope that the sunrise light would be better. It slowly got dark, we watched the northern lights dance around in a twilight sky for about an hour and then watched it get light again with one of most beautiful sunrises I have seen for quite some time. Made the short stay completely worthwhile and as soon as the colour had disappeared from this sky we got back in the 4x4 and drove on the three hours to the nearest signs of life. It really is amazing spending time in the remote highlands of Iceland. I just started a page on facebook, you can follow me here- www.facebook.com/antonyspencerlandscapephotography
A beautiful late summer sunrise over a geothermal oasis in the centre of Iceland. The colour of these geothermal pools is absolutely incredible and the textures around this particular pool were incredibly beautiful. This is the first real image I have made on the Phase and the details are mind blowing. I cant wait to use this more as we head towards winter.

This incredible supercell formed as soon as this thunderstorm crossed the Rocky mountains and moved over the Great Plains in Montana. Seeing the difference the sudden updraft makes to rotation in a storm like this as soon as it reaches the warmer air is pretty incredible. To stand and observe a storm of this magnitude moving towards you at 50mph is a very humbling experience, the warm air being sucked into the storm is incredibly strong and makes photography a little challenging at times! You knew when the supercell was getting too close as you would suddenly find yourself in the outflow with the wind completely changing direction instantly. Every little while you had to pack up quick knowing that the hail core carrying golf-tennis ball size hailstones was just moments away! After nightfall this storm went on to produce a tornado near the town of Great Falls.
I have always wanted to witness storms like this on the Plains and to get the chance to chase them like this with a very knowledgable guide was just amazing. Looking forward to next year already!
