One from my trip a few weeks back at Gullane when I caught a good sunset and another unexpected surprise..
Again double exposure blend to retain the detail in the cliff against the very bright skies.
Got a few more images from that night but reckon this was the best of the bunch.
In hindsight I should of wet the foreground rocks, but too late now.

Chimney Rock has been #1 on my list since I moved back to the area. As a kid, I had many trips out to Point Reyes and have always wanted to spend time capturing some of the unique scenes in the park. The radar looked somewhat promising when I checked earlier in the day, and as I approached on the long drive out I could see a gap. Always underestimating the time it takes to get out here, I arrived with little time to spare and ran on the trail from my car to find a vantage point, multitasking some exercise in.
This was truly one of the most surreal sunsets I have witnessed. It didn't completely explode with nuclear color, but there was zero wind and the wave action below was crazy...an odd juxtaposition of the elements. If you look in the bottom right, on the beach, you can see the Elephant seals in big numbers. They were going absolutely crazy down there, making it that much more interesting. It was me and one another couple off in the distance taking it in, and I really felt energized after leaving this epic view. I did feel bad though, for the photographer that arrived just as the second stage of afterglow faded away! This was one of my favorite comps from the evening, but I am working on a pano that captures more of the scene. There is no doubt that I will be back here in the coming months when the sun sets further north! Hope you enjoy, let me know what you think!!!!
I had been talking to the very talented photographer Craig McCormick via Twitter and Facebook as we are both members of KelbyOne.
Even though we had never met he invited me up to his stunning home in Scotland and we visited quite a few locations. One of which was Bowfiddle Rock. After a couple of hours of trying to find a good composition, the tide came in and gave me exactly what I had wanted.
A nice partly cloudy morning at North Curl Curl on the headland, looking North. This is a fusion of three exposures at 20mm and f16 (Canon 17-40mm f4 lens). I used a two stop grad on the upper right corner of the image and a 3 stop ND filter to slow down the exposure.
Shaped by water for thousands of years Kannesteinen Rock has become a facinating sculpture. The 3 meter high rock is located on the west coast of Norway (Oppedal outside Måløy)
I couldn't decide whether to call this one 'Rocks' or 'ND4 wide angle Vertorama"... Went with Rocks in the end :)
The unique "rock garden" of Peggy's Cove is due to carving created by the migration of glaciers and the ocean tides.
The massive rock walls of the Grand Canyon almost go back to the beginning of history.

Camping at Big Sur, California. On a hike down from the campsite there is a small rocky beach. When I I got there at 6:00 a.m someone had been there the night before and made some amazing rock statues.. here is one of them!

A beautiful summer day in Newcastle. A chance to try out the new Lee Big Stopper.
Long exposure just at sunset on a cloudy and warm day.
To find places like this and enjoy photographing them is like getting lost in a different world of serenity and calm.
These large rocks in the sea, known as "The Friars", create a totally magical atmosphere.

Fluffy clouds over Pendle.
A wide dynamic range and contrast here. Many exposures used to produce what I hope is a balanced exposure. (NOT hdr)
Best viewed in LARGE.

Surreal sunset, Hotel Kervansaray, Bodrum, Turkey.
3 exposures[-2,0,+2EV] handhelt in IS0100/RAW at f/6,4 using the Sigma 10-20mm lens.
Desaturation on the rocks which looked a bit too unnatural.
Removed cyan cast from the sky by changing the hue and adding lightness.
Some dodging on certain parts of the water and rocks.
All comments, criticism and tips for improvements are ( as always ) welcome.
Looking towards Cromford from Black Rocks, Derbyshire. There's a trail below here that leads to the canal that runs along the A6 road to Matlock Bath.
Thinks...'must stay away from Photomatix, must stay away from Photomatix'
Finally these precious icy rocks appeared there by the sea after some very cold nights and after the sea had withdrawn a bit. I had been waiting for these like a child waits for Santa Claus. To me these icy pieces are one of the most beautiful phenomenons on this planet.
An old shot from Smith Rock SP. I was here with my friends Rob, and Ryan Dyar. It was cold. Rob and I slept in my wife's van with 2 of my dogs...and there was ice 1/4 thick on the windows in the morning...but the sunrise was darn nice.
A new Singh-Ray GND filter is on its way....to replace the one eaten by the sea.
Also I now am a proud owner of a RT ticket to Iceland....so, as they say in the lightswitch business... it's ON!
Sunlight sneaks through the clouds onto the peaks of Seneca Rocks in West Virginia.
Here is a 5 image pano from an awesome evening I had at Chimney Rock a few months ago. The light wasn't explosive, but I was happy to have some color along with minimal wind and no fog;-) Love the view here with the wild Pacific on one side and calm Drakes Bay on the other!
The wonderfulk rock formations around Widdop Reservoir , a favourite with sheep and climbers alike .The famous Camel Head can be seen to the right ,
Widdop means `wide valley ` and is enclosed by rocky crags . It sits on the top of the Pennines very close to the Lancashire border .
The population is centered in several small towns, populated by approximately 262,000 inhabitants. The largest are Tanjung Pandan in the west and Manggar in the east, which are the respective capitals of the two Regencies (Belitung and Belitung Timur) into which the island is administratively divided. While ethnic Malays people make up the largest percentage, Belitung has large populations of Bugis, Sundanese, and ethnic Chinese people who formerly worked for the Dutch, mining tin. There are also sizeable populations of Balinese and Madurese who were settled there in the Suharto era transmigration.
Topography of Belitung island
It is a medium sized island of about 1,840 square miles (4,800 km2), it consists of moderately rugged terrain with several hills. The highest one is Mount Tajam with the height of only less than 500 meters (1,600 ft). Belitung is bordered by the Gaspar Strait, the South China Sea and the Java Sea. Its turquoise blue sea is moderately calm and shallow, making for great sailing, snorkeling and swimming. Belitung is popular for its abstract granite boulders and brilliant white sand beaches in Tanjung Tinggi, Tanjung Kelayang, Tanjung Binga and Lengkuas island.
Part of the plant of NV Billiton Maatschappij company in Belitung island (ca. 1939)
Belitung is a source of tin, clay, iron ore and silica sands. The Dutch mining company NV Billiton Maatschappij derives its name from the island's name. Billiton merged with BHP in 2001 to form the largest diversified resources company, BHP Billiton.
The island is also a producer of fishery products, pepper, coconut, and palm oil. People work as farmers, fishermen and miners. The island is easily accessible with 4 daily 50-minute flights from Jakarta.
The white sand beaches and offshore islands are helping tourism to become a larger part of the economy.
I'll admit I did a lot of gawking when hiking Smith Rock's Misery trail. Remarkable geological wonder. I found it's varied forms primeval, primordial and awe inspiring.
Crooked river hugs it tightly adding to the beauty.
This is one of the 2 major formations here, with many smaller buttes, spires, hoodoos and oddities including "Monkey Face" (shown in comments).
Smith Rock is one of the Seven Wonders of Oregon.
As it should be.
The weeks half over! Enjoy a wonderful Wednesday.
Vasquez Rocks in the Sierra Pelona Mountains in Agua Dulce, California. In 1874 Tiburcio Vasquez, one of California’s most notorious bandits, used these rocks to elude law enforcement and ever since his name has been associated with this geologic feature. Since 1928, nearly two hundred film and television productions have been shot at Vasquez Rocks, including Star Trek, Blazing Saddles, The Big Bang Theory and Gunsmoke.
This has been sitting on my desktop for ages. Time to post or delete.
