It feels great to get back outside after the long winter and begin to enjoy, again, the wonderful atmosphere the Northeast region has to offer.

Thanks very much for viewing, the faves and comments!

Matt and I had woken up from a great night camping by the roadside in rural NSW, packed our tent and made our way down the highway to some canola fields we had found the evening before.


This was a field just outside of Cowra and one of the last fields we shot before racing back to Sydney. There were a few compositions to try but in the end I decided to just play it safe and opted for a classic panoramic with the subject of interest in the left.

Misty morning on the Prynnsberg Estate outside Clocolan in the Free State Province SA

On the road to blue hour. Looking west along Neckargemünder Strasse outside of Neckarsteinach..

Tree just outside Keswick. Russ and I waited ages for the light.

Here's yet more lightning from an intense storm last spring on eastern plains of Weld County, Colorado. Best viewed large on black if you get a chance (click on the image to open the large light table view, or type "L").


Image Notes:: This is a composite image of seven long exposures, one of which caught three lightning blasts by itself. The lightning was so close and bright that even though it was night the foreground was illuminated perfectly. All images were shot with me inside my car, it was way too dangerous to be wandering around lugging a metal tripod outside. ;-)

Happy Hump Day everyone. ;) Back to Palouse editing. I can't completely remember where this was taken anymore, I know it was north of Colfax so I'm going to make a best guess as to where it is on the map. All I remember was that it started pouring just as we crested the hill and I look outside, I see this vivid localized rain with the wind drifting it across the hills. Very cool experience. Hope everyone is having a great week! Thanks for the views/comments/favs, I truly appreciate it!

One of the purest and most beautiful lakes in the world is located in Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada. Moraine Lake, which features turquoise water and a mountainous surrounding, is hidden in the Canadian Rocky Mountains.


Moraine Lake is a glacially-fed lake in Banff National Park, outside the Village of Lake Louise, Alberta, Canada. It is situated in the Valley of the Ten Peaks, at an elevation of approximately 6,183 feet (1,885 m).


The lake, being glacially fed, does not reach its crest until mid to late June. When it is full, it reflects a distinct shade of blue. The colour is due to the refraction of light off the rock flour deposited in the lake on a continual basis.


Thank you for your comments,

Information: , surrounded by a wide moat, stands at the edge of the graceful Mastbos. The castle is first mentioned in documents dated 1554. In 1614 it was converted into a hunting lodge. Kasteel

Bouvigne borders on a beautiful garden. Nothing is known of landscape gardening in the16th century. The present garden is open to the public and integrates French, German and English styles of the 20th century. Bouvigne castle is a charming building outside Breda, in the Mastbos forest. Its present look dates mainly from the 17th century. For a long time, the princes of Orange used it as their summer house. The castle, that stands in the water, was built in a typical renaissance style. Its beautiful gardens are open to the public.

Big thanks to Tiws and Soten for all your hard work and letting me be a part of this years festival. Had an amazing time with new friends.


I love Denmark!

Lightning striking outside Elfrida, AZ. 16 August, 2014. Been a busy monsoon here in southeast AZ.

I couldn't wait to get outside with my camera when I saw there was frost!

This was yet another barn I had seen which looked tempting from the roadside but had been dis-regarded in favor of some other locations.


After our discovery of Hansel and Gretel’s decrepit old house of cake and candy hidden in the woods (see: we swung by this barn for a better look and my mind was made up.


That afternoon I returned for some softer light. The location was good and the composition worked but it was difficult to shoot because the road was lower than the foreground. Ready to jump the fence I realized that my solution was simple. Living the North American ideal I was behind the wheel of a Chevy Silverado truck with a large open back. I had a very convenient and elevated tripod platform under my right foot.


This barn was located on a small road called Kings Road, just outside of Petewawa. I parked my truck to the side of the road, set up my tripod and chose a longer focal length than my usual 50mm to bring in the scene and condense the foreground with the background.


The colours in this scene were actually so vibrant that they needed some degree of desaturation to make them visually acceptable and balanced with the foreground and barn.


I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again - Canada is an amazing country! From the Rockies in the west (which I cannot wait to get back to soon) to the lighthouses and coastal scenery to the east, the baron polar regions to the north and everything in between. This is a country of unbelievable variety and one I truly love spending time in.


Having only had a couple of days available to get out with the camera I was fortunate to be in such a densely photogenic location with incredible fall colours available at every turn.


I just wish I had more time.

When it's blowing 30 knots it's better to be inside than outside.

I was working in the office I looked outside and saw an orange hue. I walked out on to the street and shot this. The only spot in my street without electrical wires streching across.


Moraine Lake is a glacially-fed lake in Banff National Park, 14 kilometres (8.7 mi) outside the Village of Lake Louise, Alberta, Canada. It is situated in the Valley of the Ten Peaks, at an elevation of approximately 6,183 feet (1,885 m). The lake has a surface area of .5 square kilometres (0.19 sq mi).


The lake, being glacially fed, does not reach its crest until mid to late June. When it is full, it reflects a distinct shade of blue. The colour is due to the refraction of light off the rock flour deposited in the lake on a continual basis


Slightly disappointed with the real colours that evening though loved the clowds. Just couldn't tweak it to what I liked in photoshop so decided to go really radical. Tried black and white: didn't like it either. So settled for blue: totally unatural and not sure I should really post it. Anyway... why play it safe... Sleep well!

When we understand the outside of things, we think we have them. Yet nature puts her things in subdefined, suggestive shapes, yielding no satisfactory meaning to the mere intellect, but unfolding themselves to the conscience and heart. George MacDonald

Another attempt at star trails. Taken outside Alexandria in the farm lands where there was less light pollution. This one was shot for 45 min at 30 sec interval pictures.


Resolution on this one is fairly low considering treating a file with 90 layers is heavy on the CPU. In result I reduced the file dimensions to accelerate processing times.

Another photograph taken walking through the Longshaw Estate near Padley Gorge, just outside Sheffield.

One from my many early mornings at Spark's Lake waiting for clouds. Hey, they may be anorexic clouds but at least some clouds finally decided to roll in! (The morning before the freak thunderstorm)

Let's just all pretend that this is a epic star trail shot with a stunning moonlit foreground... the stars are reflecting over the lake.. pretty ain't it? Yep, I stood outside at midnight to get this shot and I didn't really scare myself away by the hundreds of low flying wayward bats nearly slapping me in the face.

Thanks for your comments on my Lake Louise shot! I appreciate every one of them. Here is one from a frozen channel in the Athabasca River just outside of Jasper. I have another comp to post as well. The color happened over the more main peak making comps a bit of a challenge. Let me know what you think. Chip

I got home late that night, put on a movie, Paul Blart, Mall Cop. It was pretty funny, so if I was lucky got maybe an hour of sleep, awakened by the barking dog to peek outside for some amazing pre-dawn colors. Jumped out of bed, and drove down the st to my nearest beach with free parking. I knew it was going to be a good one, so I just grabbed my over-sized back-pack (tamrac expedition 8x) from the night before (still had all my lens's & strobes) Got set-up for some beautiful colors, but then 10 minutes later the clouds over the horizon started glowing pink and the tide was just right screaming shoot me! anyways went back to sleep & relaxed most of the day. It was one of the best sunrises I've ever waken up to!


Hope you enjoy! I know I did!

Chet Faker – I’m into you


I’m back visiting family in my hometown of Forster for my grandmothers 90th birthday and took the opportunity of a rainless morning to get outside for a shoot before this weekends forecasted big wet.


I grasped the artistry of photography many years ago by committing to countless mornings standing on rocks with rushing water around me and it's been with me since.


Today, with many more shots behind me, I still regard seascapes as one of the most challenging yet rewarding breeds of photographic expression. With so many variables at play at any one time seascapes demand careful attention and are immensely enjoyable.


It’s been a while since I’ve been out for a seascape so climbing around the rocks on Burgess Beach at Forster in the dark this morning was a good change and brought back some nice memories of times I've spent here before. A lot has changed since then and I think I'm slowly accepting that.


Shot with the new Nikon D810 and a Carl Zeiss 15mm Distagon T* with a B+W circular polariser.

The Hudson River Maritime Museum, in Kingston New York, is the only museum in New York State exclusively preserving the maritime history of the Hudson River, its tributaries, and the communities and industries that developed around it. At the museum’s outside yard contains the 1898 steam tug "Mathilda" and the bell of the famous steamboat "Mary Powell".

I have recently (within the last 3 months) moved from Derbyshire, England to just outside Snowdonia, North Wales. Back in Derbyshire I had a love for taking long exposure waterfall shots however finding any falls was sometimes difficult. Here in North Wales I can't get away from them! Which makes going on a short walk rather difficult as I find myself reaching for the ND filter and the tripod every 5 minutes!


This shot is at Llyn Ogwen just next to the A5.

The tide was just on the turn when this shot was taken. The sky was quite splendid, one of evenings when the sky seems full of melody.
