Another icon of Val d'Orcia, and probably the most photographed location in Tuscany. I visited this place twice within one week at sunrise; both days I had to share it with 10-20 fellow photographers from all over the world.

 

Noch ein Wahrzeichen im Val d'Orcia, und wahrscheinlich die am häufigsten fotografierte Stelle in der Toskana. Ich war zweimal hier zum Sonnenaufgang; beide Male mußte ich den Platz mit 10-20 Fotografen aus aller Welt teilen.

 

"Green Spirit" (Auroras in The City)

 

If you like this shot feel free to share it:)

 

This is Tromsø, northern Norway on feb.18th 2013.

 

This is also a shot from a scene in my new video "Polar Spirits", released april 16th 2013, watch it here:

POLAR SPIRITS - on Vimeo

 

At the time of this shot, we were caught off guard with early afternoon auroras, rushing out, just to come to late to the party. On feb 18th 2013, I was armed and ready for early auroras, but no such ting. Crystal clear skies was present over northern Norway, with Jupiter easily visible close to the moon. The magnetograms at the University of Tromsø was completely dead and no change in solar wind or density, so I though I should call it a early night. I just had to look out the window first, and am I glad I did!!! I could see some green lights on the sky, there seemed to be a party in the neighborhood! I grabbed my gear and rushed out with toothpaste still in my mouth!! And surely enough, again there was a surprise party, it just had started a couple of hours later than previous days. Since I had been let down the previous days with coming to late to the party I decided to do some nearby shooting downtown in Tromsø. Normally you would want to escape city lights to get a good view of the auroras. However, if auroras are bright, it is perfectly possible to see it also from a bright city. Actually, the combination of a majestic aurora and a beautiful lit city can be quite a sight. The burst was quiet strong and beautiful, but it was short! So I am glad I went for this shot this day. At least I got to the party before it was over and I probably was the last guest to leave. The shape of this aurora kind of reminds me of an figure, maybe a guardian angel?

 

I was tempted to call the shot "City of Angels", but I did not want the fury of the citizen of Los Angeles over me. Still this light figure reminded me of something, an angel, a ghost? And I did not feel like calling the shot "Ghost town", hehe.. So how about the "Green Spririt" ?

 

Ths ship you see in the sea just to the right underneath the Arctic Cathedral is one of the Hurtigruten coastal cruise ships. Let me tell you, being on board one of those ships watching the auroras is just fantastic! I really recommend it.

A wonderful experience, shared with fellow professional photographer and friend John Vose. Two Medicine Lake is notorious for it's high winds and wild weather. On this morning, we were able to experience a calming Zen moment with mirror like reflections and sublime alpenglow off the hulking Mt Sinopah.

The covered wagon, also known as a prairie schooner, is a cultural icon of the American Old West.

Although covered wagons were commonly used for shorter moves within the United States, in the mid-nineteenth century thousands of Americans took them across the Great Plains from developed parts of the Midwest to places in the West such as California, Oregon, Colorado, and Montana. Overland immigrants typically used farm wagons, fitting them with five or six wooden bows that arched from side to side across the wagon bed, then stretching canvas or some other sturdy cloth over the bows, creating the cylindrical cover. Sometimes, these wagons would be as long as 15 feet.

Covered wagons were primarily used to transport goods. Small children, the elderly, and the sick or injured rode in them, but since the wagons had no suspension and the roads were rough, many people preferred to walk, unless they had horses to ride.

While covered wagons traveling short distances on good roads could be drawn by horses, those crossing the plains were usually drawn by a team of two or more pairs of oxen. These were driven by a teamster or drover, who walked at the left side of the team and directed the oxen with verbal commands and whipcracks. Mules were also used; they were harnessed and driven by someone sitting in the wagon seat holding the reins.

One covered wagon generally represented five people. A well-to-do family might have two or three wagons, or a group of single men traveling together might share a wagon. While crossing the plains, emigrants banded together to form wagon trains for mutual assistance and occasionally defense. The covered wagons and wagon trains were retired late before the era of cars and planes.

Prairie schooner is a fanciful name for the covered wagon; the white canvas covers of the wagons crossing the prairies reminded some writers of the sails of a ship at sea.[1]

"Euphoria"

This is another shot from the night of dec.9th 2012, somewhere not too far from Tromsø, Northern Norway.

 

I was at three locations shooting this night, and this was the last. This location with a wintry foreshore and frozen water was perfect for some good reflections and some good balance in the frame.

 

The biggest show of auroras had finished, I thought, but I was hoping for a last dance with the lady of light. And glad was I when she accepted my invitation. The feeling of joy and excitemenet when she started to dance, in these wintry surroundings, can be described as nothing but euphoric!

 

I hope you like this shot, if you do please share!

Something different from me today. I've never shared anything where I've added a texture before, but I've really only just figured out how to use them. The original shot of this was nothing great at all, because the weather was terrible (it was all misty and rainy and just so grey) and really, the only thing stopping me sending it to the trash can is that it has the Eiffel Tower in it. So, I used the inspiration of a vintage postcard that I bought in Paris and also those of you who do incredible work with textures and created this. I realise that not everyone is going to like it (in fact, it might end up just being me), but I'm going to look at this as a learning curve because I'm so new to textures and in the end, the textures did save this shot from going in the trash. :)

We leave a place no matter how we love it for a reason or another but there will only be select faces and pictures that would remain mprinted in our hearts and minds. But think of how much difference it makes if we've captured them with our cams. Jim Croce will tell you this.

...And I stand alone in front of the great icon...done this before,and will do it again..but being alone is a state of mind...also a state of being...and is certainly not a desirable state of reality: The human condition dictates otherwise;To go forwards is the only option,and who am I to dispute the accumulated experience of many generations?

Do you believe in Heaven? Do you believe in God? Do you believe in the survival of the soul?

Do you care....

 

Your life should be savoured,dear friends...take the advice of one who knows,by bitter regret and experience...never go to sleep on an argument...always respect the frailties and shortcomings of the human condition...treat others as you wish to be treated...and never be afraid to say "I love you"...for this is the only constant in an ever-changing world.

 

Thank you for taking the time to read this...for those of you of a religious persuasion...God Bless You: بارك الله فيك : יברך אותך אלוהיםI : I fully respect your beliefs...and indeed,envy you greatly.

For all others...God Bless You too...share love,care for those who need it...that is,all humanity.

 

My days are dark now...I want,I need so much;answers that no one can give me...I thank you so much for being bothered enough to remain with me so far.

 

I reiterate....never be afraid to say "I love you".

 

Thank you,dear friends...

Four days ago, on 29 September 2014, I finally drove out to an area that lies NE of Calgary, that I had longed to go to for so many years. It must have been 30+ years ago that I first saw one particular area of the Badlands of Alberta. A few times since then, I had been fairly close when I went on several botany trips out that way, but when you are carpooling, you can't just go wherever you want. So, my youngest daughter and I decided that we both wanted to make this trip. All summer, we had been waiting for a day on which she didn't have to work and where the weather forecast was for no rain on the day or there had been no rain the previous day. The Bentonite Clay in the area becomes treacherously slippery when wet. The forecast for this day was for a mainly sunny day - at last, we were going!

 

I think this was the longest day of driving I had ever done, especially to, and in, an area that I'd never driven to before. For anyone who doesn't know me, I have battled a driving phobia for decades, plus I have no sense of direction, lol! Thankfully, my daughter has an amazing sense of direction, so I knew we wouldn't be stuck out on the prairies in the middle of nowhere. A typical question at too many intersections went as follows: me - "Do we go left?"; my daughter - "No, we go right", lol!

 

I met my daughter at 8:00 am. and I got home shortly before 9:00 pm. Much of that time was spent driving; the rest was spent wandering round three main areas - The Hoodoo Trail, Dorothy and Rowley, in different directions from Drumheller (known for its remarkable dinosaur findings). The forecast was far from accurate on our drive out to the Badlands and I began to wonder if we'd made a mistake going on this trip on that particular day. However, knowing that snow would be returning very soon ("returning" because we had two snowstorms on 9 and 10 September), I was beginning to feel rather desperate and really didn't want to risk not getting out there this year. The afternoon was less cloudy and we did have some sun.

 

So, the first of our destinations was The Hoodoo Trail, a small area of protected, spectacular hoodoos (rock formations), and then we went further, to the almost-ghost-town of Dorothy. I had longed, for such a long time, to see the two small, old churches that are to be found in Dorothy, as well as the old grain elevator seen in this photo. This photo was obviously taken before the sun eventually came out. This abandoned icon of the prairies stands at the edge of the main road and will probably end up crumbling or being destroyed before too long, like so many other grain elevators in Alberta. Such a waste, that they are not protected.

 

After that, we drove over 11 bridges and called in at the tiny hamlet of Wayne, passing the old Atlas Coal Mine. Much as we would have liked to visit the mine, we knew that we just didn't have time. Then we went to Rowley to see the old grain elevators and to wander round this very small, historical place. There are actually three elevators, with two being right next to each other and the other one a little further from them. Dorothy felt and looked almost deserted, whereas Rowley was beautifully kept.

 

From Rowley, we made our way back across the prairies to Calgary. I had planned on getting back before it got dark as I no longer like night driving and very rarely do it, but we didn't quite make it. On the return drive, the last sighting was a Great Horned Owl that was perched part way up a power pole. Well done, Rachel, spotting this welcome bird! Not easy to see in the dark. By the time I got home, I was so tired and my arms were so painful from driving, but, what a great day we had!!

 

"There were 1,651 elevators in Alberta in 1951, but by 1982 a total of 979 elevators remained. The 1990s spelled the death of the wooden “country” or “primary” elevator. At the end of the 1990s, as the full impact of both of the ending of the Crow Rate in 1995 and further impending rail abandonment was felt, the pace of demolition accelerated at an unprecedented rate. At the end of the 1996-1997 crop year, there were only 327 elevators left. Alberta’s largest cooperative grain companies, the Alberta Wheat Pool (which amalgamated with Manitoba Pool Elevators in 1998 as Agricore) and United Grain Growers, ultimately formed a new corporate entity known as Agricore United in 2001, issuing issued public shares. Demolition of country elevators has continued, and in 2005 there were only 156 wooden elevators of any kind still standing, only a handful of which are used by the grain trade.

 

The Government of Alberta has recognised the significance of the traditional wood grain elevators, and has designated 12 as Provincial Historic Resources. They are located in the following communities: Andrew, Castor, Leduc, Meeting Creek, Paradise Valley, Radway, Rowley (3 elevators), Scandia and St. Albert (2 elevators)."

the story behind the image~

the moment was quite surreal as i parked probably 12-15 feet from the chain railing seemingly safe from any danger and when my buddy david opened the car door; all i can remember seeing was "whiteness" and then the explosion of a wave and foam entering from the passenger side of my car! at that point it was bit chaotic and i could remember seeing my business car magnet begin to drift outward with the outgoing flow of ocean water towards the edge of the bay water. david's quick reaction saved the piece from its certain doom if it were to fall any further that way! looking over at david, he was now drenched and soaked from the bay water with his camera and tripod at hand in the same condition. we were intent on capturing the veracity of the moment and we were soon on track facing the dynamic waves watching their ritualistic dance explode in force before and around us. it was a sight to behold for sure. we did not stay long nor did we get many shots as david was cold being in the wet clothes. we decided to call it a day, hoping that we each had captured at least something as memento to the experience.

it is sometimes these little funny days that we remember most vividly in our journey creating pictures.

i hope you will enjoy this moment that i have recorded and share in the impact and glory of the moment. hopefully learn from it also!

special note,

1. my car's interior cup holder caught about an inch and half of salt water from the exploding wave over the cement & chain railing.

2. david's nikon camera and lens took a bit of a beating but is still in working condition!

3. it took me about 4 hours for me to get most of the car interior back to some sane condition!=)

4. david and i are "way" laughing about it now and probably will for a long time i am sure!

5. david is vowing that he will never shoot something like this again.

6. this is the same day that 13 spectators at Mavericks Surf Contest in California had significant injuries, including broken leg and hand.

we were very fortunate to walk away and laugh about it now!

Last weekend (end Oct 2012) we spent 2 days in Paris.

 

Looking at the Europe weather map whilst we were there, it was raining just about everywhere in Europe apart from where we were - how lucky were we!

 

One thing we noticed in Paris is that the Eiffel Tower, standing alone and not surrounded by any other tall buildings, totally dominates the city skyline. Marvellous at first, it does become somewhat dreary to have it in all your photos! We ended up looking for city scapes without the tower, just for something different.

 

That said, you just HAVE to take lots of shots because it is such a global icon, and massively impressive - especially at night when, for 10 mins or so at the top of every hour, the whole things lights up like Sydney Harbour Bridge on New Years Eve.

 

This image was taken at the Trocadero which is just a couple of hundred metres away from le tour and perfectly positioned to capture the beautiful morning sun rise.

L'AMOUR EST LE REGARD DE L'AME (Simone Weil)

Die Liebe ist der Blick der Seele.

Love is the look of the soul.

 

A friend is someone who feels exactly when you need him/her.

Un ami, c'est celui qui devine toujours quand on a besoin de lui.

(Jules Renard)

 

After the January atrocities in Paris (Charlie Hebdo), I heard somebody say : Il faut avoir le cœur bien accroché (You need to have the heart well attached). I somewhat misunderstood this (v.French) citation, as I thought it means that in our times one really has to pay attention to one’s heart, to love without reasoning, to forgive (much more) easily, or, as my dad used to say: Watch that your heart is always a lot softer than your head.

Therefore, I thought what an appropriate saying this was, for we ALL had a near-broken heart after such an aggression by some gravely misguided fanatics. BUT today I learned that it is a saying from olden times and meaning to harden one’s heart to stand up to ‘the heat’ or it might break too quickly/easily).

 

Anyway, this expression has been in MY heart for all those weeks since January and I made it a point of reference (in my understanding) to be more loving, have a ‘tenderized’ heart, and to find something to SMILE about every single day. And with this: HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY and HAPPY EVERYDAY! - ♥ Love, Kiki
