The Solstice

    Newer Older

    This came from one of my favorite nights in Iceland! This was shot around 2 AM, right when I started feeling loopy.

    I was on the edge of some precipitous volcanic rock, and there was a waterfall behind me. It fed this little area of rapids that emptied out into one of the fjords. There had been a light rain for a few hours, but the setting sun cut underneath the clouds to unleash some godly colors.

    About 10-20% of my HDRs are in portrait mode. I am just usually in landscape mode for some reason. Part of it has to do with the way people consume these things -- on monitors. I don't like making people scroll up and down to see a photo. That's kind of a drag. That's another reason I don't like those super-wide panoramas. They are so difficult to pan around, even though there are a lot of slick tools. It's just not a "viewing" experience while you are busy using a tool to manipulate the photo itself. Do you know what I mean?

      Nice one! I just had my girlfriend's boss ask her if I'd seen this HDR stuff this guy is doing. It was a link to your site. I laughed and said, "I've had him listed as a contact on Flickr for over 4 years". Your airplay grows ever larger. Keep up the great work!

      Don't mean to be pedantic, but "A solstice is an astronomical event that happens twice each year when the Sun's apparent position in the sky reaches its northernmost or southernmost extremes" And not on June 12.
