For this glorious Sunday, I wanted to share with all my Flickr Flower Lovers, this extraordinary image from one of my Hybrid Hibiscus flowers, before it fully opened up.

The details of the miniture pollen spheres are clearly visible and the Hibiscus tips are extremely detailed. Definitely one of my favorites, out of all my Hibiscus images posted.

Maybe this Awesome image may be one of your favorites also.?

Thanks for all your support on my work in Photography.Lol: Gaston (aka Gasssman).

First - I must apologise to about fifty of my contacts who I couldn't visit yesterday evening! We are experiencing some very extreme weather at the moment and there were bad thunderstorms all evening so I had to disconnect my computer. I shall try to catch up this evening.

I took this shot today in my lunchbreak (the things I do for flickr ....and yes - both I and the car got drenched!!) as we have a record high spring tide today which combined with very bad gales has brought the sea in much too high. It is going to get much worse tonight with prophecies of 20 meter high waves in the North sea...and I'm not going out in a boat to record them for you all!

The color here is really to the extreme end. The purple cast is mostly from the stacking of two cokin GND filters, haven't figured out a good way to remove this yet.

Extreme Ways

Moby

 

Extreme ways are back again

Extreme places I didn't know

I broke everything new again

Everything that I'd owned

I threw it out the window, came along

Extreme ways I know will part

The colors of my sea

Some perfect colored sea

 

I'm dedicating this shot to my fellow Focus mates, who ventured in pitch darkness down an extremely challenging cliff face to access the beach which this stunning rock is situated on. Superb effort folks.

SUPPORT MY WORK! Just LIKE my Facebook page! Thanks!

Two hikers in an truly dangerous place; an extreme path over the Mont Blanc, the blue ice and the clouds behind the rocks let undestand how difficult can be this sport.

Chicken's new hobby. >.<

 

I better stop her before she breaks an arm or a leg. :P

Toys for big boys, I bought an Extreme 200cc sports quad. You can find a series of shots right here.

 

Also I'm considering buying an Arctic Cat DVX 400 within the next couple of days / weeks: a powerful 40 whp ATV made by Suzuki and styled by Arctic Cat. That's going to be double as much fun based on what I'm used to now, lol :-P

 

Original exposure: ISO 100, 12mm, f/18, 1/25sec

Certainly not HDR you freaks :)

A message to new and existing contacts (making myself unpopular):

 

I've purged my contact-list recently, containing almost 2000 soles. In fact I've already truncated the list by 92%, now having a more manageable leftover of 154 contacts and friends, but I'm not even done yet. Management became a tedious task with such a huge amount of contacts. Getting rid of majority took me hours of work already, because I still haven't found a way of removing them all at once, unfortunately.

 

Anyway, from now on I will check my stream on a more regular base and try to keep up with your latest, simply because you deserve it. Isn't that democratic :P

My photo was selected by Canadian Geographic for one of their 2017 calendars, 'Extreme Weather'. The photo isn't very dramatic but I guess the end result of the weather was... especially since this was taken on September 10! Comments disabled, since this was previously in my photostream.

 

edit... changed to allow comments because some people are so nice they wanted to... thx C

  

p.s. I wanted so much for one of my bear or fox photos to be a runner up in one of their contests... and then they choose this for a calendar. Oh well, there is always next year.

ODC ... extreme ...

hss !

For Toy Sunday: Extreme Sports

 

The crowd goes wild…this is no competition for Jun! Domo is up next.

We had extreme winds ahead of the two storms which literally blew through the Eastern Sierra last weekend. This is a ranch's topsoil blowing away in high winds gusting over 70 MPH. Gusts on the Sierra Nevada ridge lines topped 100 MPH. Power went down for much of the weekend, and there was a lot of wind damage to fences and roofs.

 

Here at Topaz Lake, people use portable docks that they can move as the water level changes. I was lying on one, with one arm around a metal pole to hang on. The dock was getting buffeted in the wind gusts, and I was concerned that a big gust might flip it over, so I didn't spend much time out here. I was also getting pelted by dirt, sand and debris, so I had put my ski goggles on. I still got a lot of dirt in my eyes while I was out there.

This photo was selected by Flickr.com for Explore on January 28, 2011 as # 287 on that day. This photo is my only photo to have been viewed more than 1,000 times.

(The man really is falling. I did not add him with PhotoShop. It's a hell of a way to make a living!)

While processing this image a few weeks ago, I took it to a garish extreme. Admittedly, it hurts my eyes and makes me a little motion sick, but I'm drawn to it and it appeals to me, too.

I love that you can see this plant's other leaves, and even the rim of the pot it's in, through the refractive dewdrops on its leaf's sharp edges.

If you can't beat them, join them lol my new motto.

Got to the seafront a little too late this morning and missed any pre sun colours due to my alarm not going off (power cut).

As the conditions where a bit crappy and bland I decided to take bracketed shots and try some HDR and see how it turns out.

Normally I try and do everything in camera but what the hell extreme processing here I come yeehaa.

This is just by Eastbourne bandstand looking towards Eastbourne pier.

I used one of the pillars to block the sun to try and get an even as possible exposure across the frame which also created some nice shadows.

I also used the curved walkway as a frame for the pier so had to compose carefully to get these things balanced for my shot.

My Nikon d300s can bracket up to nine shots but for this one I chose to bracket 7 shots with 1stop apart for each.

My d300s was on my tripod and fired using my Hahnel cable release.

I used my sigma 10-20 to squeeze in all those glorious pixels and had on my Hoya Polariser to reduce the reflections of the wet floor.

 

Taken With

►Nikon D300s

►Sigma 10-20@10mm

►Polariser

►Tripod + Cable Release

►7 shots Bracketed 1 stop apart

 

Post processing

►I converted all 7 raw files into 8 bit Jpegs to speed processing up.

►Loaded all 7 jpegs into Photomatix Pro

►Chose painterly preset number 2

►Photomatix processed the images into 1 shot, I saved that shot as an 8bit Tiff.

►I loaded the Tiff into Photoshop to do minor adjustments including an 's'curve,spot removal,dodging + burning and the high pass filter.

►For the high pass filter I doubled the settings I normally use to squeeze out the detail.

This probably ranks as one of the most dramatic and awe-inspiring steam departures that I have ever witnessed, both in terms of the extreme sub-zero temperature and the quality of light in the heart of an industrial city of north eastern China. Shuangyashan Coal Railway's 'QJ' class 2-10-2 No.6917 lifts a heavy train of sheeted gondola wagons out of the China Rail/Shuangyashan Coal Railway exchange yard at 10:22 hrs on 2 January 2001, leaving a curved exhaust trail in its wake through the yard. Some day I will get around to editing the video of this departure and many others from this memorable 2001 visit!
