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.

Camel Rock near Wallaga Lake

The massive rock walls of the Grand Canyon almost go back to the beginning of history.


Please take a look on black

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)

Balanced Rock, one of the most iconic features in the park, stands a staggering 128 feet (39m) tall. While this formation may appear to be an epic balancing act, it’s actually not balanced at all. The slick rock boulder of Entrada Sandstone sits attached to its eroding pedestal of Dewey Bridge mudstone. The exposure of these two rock strata layers are ideal for the formation of arches and balanced rocks.


Balanced Rock defies gravity but this won’t always be the case. Eventually, the 3,600 ton (over 4 million kg) boulder will come tumbling down as the erosional process continues to shape the landscape. In the winter of 1975-76, Balanced Rock’s smaller sibling “Chip-Off-the-Old-Block” collapsed, proving that there is no better time than the present to see this awe-inspiring giant.


Unlike many of the other named features in the park, Balanced Rock can be seen from the park road. It is located 9.2 miles (14.8km) from the Arches Visitor Center. Although parking is limited, many visitors stop to complete the short hike (0.3mi / 0.5km roundtrip) around the rock’s base for unusual and up-close perspectives.


At sunset, Balanced Rock becomes saturated in a deep red-orange making it a great place to end a fun-filled day in the park. This is also an ideal place for stargazing and night photography.

The unique "rock garden" of Peggy's Cove is due to carving created by the migration of glaciers and the ocean tides.

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!

I had to be 'dragged' down to Stanley Park for the evening. Q convinced me and my son to bike around the seawall. All of us loving it. A beautiful evening that even the occasional seal popped up to bask in. We ended up here, at the northwest corner of the park. Dark by the time we went home. It would of been okay except Q's joke about skunks had spooked Sam. Hopefully he'll let it go...

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.

Your visits are always appreciated! Thank you.


Have a marvelous Monday and week ahead.

La Sardegna... Cagliari, terra che affascina.... poesia per gli occhi e la mente.

Dedico questa immagine a tutti gli Amici che non hanno potuto condividere con noi questa splendida terra... la Sardegna! in occasione del Raduno Nazionale Flickr svoltosi a Cagliari lo scorso weekend.

Un GRAZIE particolare agli Amici/organizzatori di questo splendido evento.. per la calorosa accoglienza e l'ottima organizzazione del raduno.

Un grazie a denti stretti al vento di Maestrale che ci ha accompagnato in questi meravigliosi scenari, anche se poco gradito per la sua impetuosa e costante presenza....

Non ultimo... per te Gigi (Gigilivorno) sempre vivo nei nostri cuori... e presente nei nostri pensieri.

The Stack Rocks at the beautiful Pembrokeshire coast in South Wales are isolated rock pillars in the sea. Once part of the mainland, the sea was working off weaker parts of the rock, leaving these pillars. As usual, my travel planning wasn’t ideal and I took this long exposure around midday on a grey and dull day. Note to self: Come back to this beauty spot in the morning or evening hours…

While I was in New Mexico, I spent a day at Ghost Ranch. A couple of the highlights for me at Ghost Ranch, was horseback riding and hiking to the top of Chimney Rock Mesa. This is just a small sample of the vast view that you get from the top of the mesa.

Last one from Bigbury Beach this week, I really liked the way these rocks looked like Shark fins sticking out of the sand. When I got home I realised that they were the same rocks that a fellow photographer had taken a shot of the week before, It was pure coincidence that I was drawn to them.This shot did take a little bit of tidying up in Photoshop as some inconsiderate numpty (me) had walked through the little gap and left bloody great big footprints in the sand. So I've gotten rid of them just to make it look a bit nicer.

I couldn't decide whether to call this one 'Rocks' or 'ND4 wide angle Vertorama"... Went with Rocks in the end :)

Taken in Acadia National Park, this is along the Schooner Head.


Low tide allowed me to get down between some of the large rock formations onto the smaller cobble stones - they are of many colors there. Extended the shutter here to smooth out the ocean waves and swells there along the shore.


I also took a capture of this long exposure capture being taken here ... and that may show up in my 'if they can see what we can see series'. To get that shot I was back up against some other large rocks ... a tight spot there. Also had to make sure no large swells came in during this long exposure ... every several minutes larges ones came in father into the rocks. Had to abort this capture more than once ;)) That involved grabbing the camera and tripod before the ocean decided to take them away from me ...

the B/W can be seen in the Iceland Album

A late evening on the rocks of Acadia, Maine.

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 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!!!!





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)
