Why I'm Giving Up Life On The Road
1 week, 1 day ago 22

Why I’m Giving Up Life On The Road I should mention that I’m not quitting travelling entirely. But I am leaving behind this long-term travelling lifestyle and moving back to the UK. I will be putting behind me the long journeys lasting months, and replacing them with 2 or 3-week trips. I felt strangely lost, like I […]

White Pockets & Red Lines
2 weeks, 1 day ago 4

Adventures in White Pocket, Arizona White Pocket is one of those places where, as soon as you arrive, you automatically begin to image its inhabitants long past. I could see cowboys stopping here to let their horses drink from the water, while being stalked by locals, whose weapons were at the ready. You feel like you […]

Golden Punchbowl Falls, Oregon

A Return to the U.S. Last night my wife and I enjoyed a couple of cold pale ales at a little, tucked-away brewery along the Columbia River in Oregon. It’s been 3 years since we were last in the region, and I have to say, it’s lovely to be back. I spent last weekend speaking […]

Dragon Eggs at Moeraki Boulders I just spent an hour writing this post, which was originally about the two recent ‘controversies’ in the photography community (Steve McCurry photoshopping his images, and someone copying Marc Adamus’ composition), where debates among photographers were heated. My post pretty much said, life’s too short to argue with a stranger […]

Moon River - Mt. Cook and Hooker Valley at Night
2 months, 2 weeks ago 12

Moon River – Mt. Cook and Hooker Valley at Night One of the interesting things about being a landscape photographer is how much we miss while we’re shooting. Every now and then I’ll be working with my camera, capturing nature’s display, and realise that I’m so focused on what I’m doing that I’m missing the […]

Epic Sunrise Glenorchy __________________________________ Hey guys! I have a question, if you’ve got a minute. If you’re a regular visitor to the blog, do you find the post-processing description and the before/after comparisons useful? I’m just wondering if it is something I should continue, or if it’s not really helping much. Thanks! __________________________________ Last week […]

Perfect Timing - Milky Way at Nugget Point
3 months ago 11

The Clouds Did Part I planned this image about 7 months ago. Using my Photopills app, I worked out the new moon date and what time the galactic centre would be over the lighthouse like this. The Milky Way would be in position at around 11pm. Unfortunately, the sky was black with clouds when we […]

Moeraki Boulders and Calm Waters

Moreaki Boulders This sunrise at Meoraki was probably one of the most beautiful I’ve ever seen. It lasted for about 45 minutes and just kept getting better. The beach was packed with photographers. Since this is a very easy location to get to, I had expected that to be the case. Fortunately I was the […]

Sunrise At Nugget Point

Climbing the Point Climbing up to take this shot isn’t exactly mountain climbing, but it’s definitely a bit ropy, especially when doing it in the dark. You scramble up the side of the cliff, and then make your way ever upwards until you run low on bravery and choose your spot. At the point where […]
