January 24, 2020 — Londranger View Point, Snæfellsjökull Peninsula, Iceland Welcome to Iceland. I’ve never, ever experienced a passport-control officer smiling genuinely and welcoming me before. It happened here. A cold country gave a very warm welcome. Iceland is like that. Iceland is indeed cold in the winter. The are storms. There are incredible sights to see and photograph. These sea stacks have been captured by thousands of photographers before. Today it was my turn. […]

Picking up from the December 31 post. But the storm wasn’t all Rothko. Something else was afoot with the weather. Maybe Mother Nature had been listening to Duke Ellington — as I have been recently — and misinterpreted Take the “A” Train as Take the A-Frame. Or something… I don’t know… (Nikon D850, Nikon 24-120mm f/4G VR. RAW processing in DxO PhotoLab 3.1; Editing in Adobe Photoshop.) More seascape horizons: www.amagaphoto.com

January 1, 2020, Sonoma County Coast The new year is often celebrated with fireworks. The best display I know of — within a reasonable distance — is old Mr. Sol.

December 28, 2019 — Sonoma Coast, this afternoon It has been said on this very blog, among other places, that the best photography happens in the worst weather. That’s where the drama is. Today was pleasant. Very pleasant. Not so dramatic, however. The weather prognosticators prognosticate drama for tomorrow. We shall see. (Nikon D850, Nikon 24-120mm f/4G VR.

Landscape / Photo Log / Photography / Positivity / Switzerland

December 25, 2019 — Earth Every year, our holiday card features a shot from our travels and every year I use the same clip-art Santa hats and the same elements for an Easter egg or two — because what better time for an Easter egg than Christmas? And every year we come up with the most corny doggerel we can think up: When you go to the land of the Swiss There’s a view you […]

I want to propose something. Here’s the background: Last week, as I was driving home from an appointment, I crested the pass above Fremont and got a view across the bay and beyond the Santa Cruz Mountains toward the west. It looked promising for some dramatic horizon seascapes. Because I always have my pocket camera with me, I drove straight to the coast. My expectations mounted during the nearly an hour-and-a-half drive, but when I […]
