One of the side benefits of having kids is that they have all sorts of things laying around that you, as an adult, just wouldn't. Like bubble sauce!


A few weeks ago my son was out playing, so I grabbed his bubble sauce and started messing around in the garden. I'd done it before (see here and here), but my son was wielding the magic wand that time. This time, I was running madly between creating bubbles and then photographing them, all on my little ownsome! It was mayhem, but a lot of fun and this image was the best of the bunch.


I'll add that this is pretty much straight out of the camera. I ran it through Photoshop for a crop and some jiggery-pokery on the colour, but not much.

Yay - my first photo to reach 100 favs!


Many thanks to everyone! I appreciate each and every comment :-)

Red Planet, Paria/Vermillion Cliffs Wilderness, Arizona


Simply an amazing display of light at sunrise over the bizarre sandstone world deep in the heart of the remote Paria/Vermillion Cliffs Wilderness. I camped here for three days in order to be on location as a storm pushing cross the west finally brought dramatic clouds to the Colorado Plateau.

Combating climate change and making the planet greener and cleaner is an issue for everyone. Climate change is no longer a distant, futuristic scenario, but an immediate threat. The impacts of climate change are unimaginable, shocking and going to be much worse than what we had anticipated today. Climate change offers humanity no second chances. Only rich countries can break the deadlock crippling international climate negotiations and prevent the world lurching into climate disaster. We should find a way to measure the general well-being of the people and planet rather than just raw economic growth.


Like the carbon footprint, water footprints are one of the latest methods scientists and policy makers are using to assess humanity's impact on the planet. And now businesses are starting to use water footprinting as well. We can calculate our water footprint “here”.


We don't need to wait for governments to find a solution for global warming. By making simple changes in our life, we can reduce our carbon and water footprints and helps stop global warming. We Can Easily Green our Daily Routine and reduce the Global Warming phenomenon. View Tips “here”.


Our Planet Needs us!

I just love to twist the world with my camera. I never know exactly what the result will be when I put the B+W 10 stop ND filter in front of the Sigma 10-20mm. This time, the 6 minutes exposure really twisted my world.... and I love it :))



Comments and critique are as always welcome. Let me hear your opinion, why do you like this, or even better, how would you approach this scenery. Give me your thoughts... not just a Wow!... only then I can improve :))



In and out of Explore, thanks to all for comments and faves :))

taken at blue hour after sunset

This is 3 exposures blended together using my advanced Photoshop tonality control and multiple exposure blending techniques. I produced a video detailing these techniques, it's available here:


Sean Bagshaw and I spent a couple mornings in this area. The light was beautiful as it bathed the landscape. People may not believe me when I tell them there has been no saturation added, in fact I had to tone down the reds, because they were too intense after I added some contrast.

This alien planet exhibits a rugged and textured blue terrain that is punctuated by black dots that appear to occur in a regular pattern. The terrain supports the growth of large, long-stemmed plants whose defining features include brownish dot-shaped heads that are likewise covered with patterns of dots. Scientists have been puzzled as to the origin of all of these dots, and the natives of the planet have not been helpful. “Dots for us to know and you to find out” is all that they will say.

Here is stop number two on this week's little roadtrip. I've been hearing about this place for years, and now I can say that everything I've heard is true. It is AMAZING!!! Bisti Badlands, in New Mexico. It's huge! It's spread out. If you don't know where you're going, you can wander all day. And, if you don't pay attention, you can be lost all day. You have to walk in about two miles before you start to see anything interesting, but once you do… WOW! I mean… Look at this place! I know I keep saying it, but seriously, this looks like another planet. It's hard to believe my own eyes when I see places like this. Yes, this really does exist, and yes, it really does look like this.


Anyway, this was taken at dusk. We had to hike back in the dark, which was a little scary. It's easy enough to get lost in that place during the day. Everything looks the same. It's like hiking in a giant maze.

What bizarre alien planet is this? It's planet Earth of course, seen from the International Space Station through the shimmering glow of aurorae. About 400 kilometers (250 miles) above Earth, the orbiting station is itself within the upper realm of the auroral displays. Aurorae have the signature colors of excited molecules and atoms at the low densities found at extreme altitudes. Emission from atomic oxygen dominates this view. The eerie glow is green at lower altitudes, but a rarer reddish band extends above the space station's horizon. Also visible from the planet's surface, this auroral display began during a geomagnetic storm. The storm was triggered after a coronal mass ejection impacted Earth's magnetosphere in June of 2015. via NASA

The fifth planet was very strange. It was the smallest of all. There was just enough room on it for a street lamp and a lamplighter. The little prince was not able to reach any explanation of the use of a street lamp and a lamplighter, somewhere in the heavens, on a planet which had no people, and not one house. But he said to himself, nevertheless:


"It may well be that this man is absurd. But he is not so absurd as the king, the conceited man, the businessman, and the tippler. For at least his work has some meaning. When he lights his street lamp, it is as if he brought one more star to life, or one flower. When he puts out his lamp, he sends the flower, or the star, to sleep. That is a beautiful occupation. And since it is beautiful, it is truly useful."


What the little prince did not dare confess was that he was sorry most of all to leave this planet, because it was blest every day with 1440 sunsets!

I have been away from the social media world, except for the news of my new baby boy which was born last week. The new bub has kept me quite occupied and I only found the time to look at my photos and process them.


This shot was taken 2 weeks ago during the trip to Bangkok. There, I had a pleasure to meet Beboy Photostock and Sabine Alphonsine, the talented and down to earth photographer. It was great to be reunited with Chow Chin Hwee as well after almost one year we didn't see each other. Thanks to Felix Indarta who came and accompany me on this trip. Daniel K. Cheong for hanging out with us couple of nights. And finally to new friends in Bangkok as well, Nik Cyclist, Alan Tee and Ability Riddle.


This shot was taken from the building where they shot the Hangover Part 2. It was taken from the balcony of our accomodation there. It was taken with my seldom used Zenitar 16mm fish eye lens. A blend of 2 exposures, using luminosity masking in Photoshop CS6 and completed using some Nik Software Tools.
