This Shot Was a Gift

January 25, 2020 — Route 1, East of Reykjavik, Iceland This shot should not have worked. It was shot through the window of an off-road bus (think rock-hard suspension) going 90 km/h on a not terribly smooth highway. The window was dirty from two days of being splashed with road slush. But it was the first time we’d seen the sun since our arrival. The colors were otherworldly and the land was an Icelandic combination […]

January 24, 2020 — Londranger View Point, Snaefellsjökull Peninsula, Iceland Taken a few minutes earlier than the one in the post before last, this shows the unaltered colors that the camera recorded. I had previously thought the color was a distortion of reality and blamed it on a brand of filter I’d never used before, but no — the water really is that color.* The next post will move us forward.

January 25, 2020 — Kirkjufellsfoss and Kirkjufell Mountain, Snaefellsjökull Peninsula, Iceland It was a dark and stormy morning. Sun would rise in another fifteen minutes. The wind was… impressive. Posted from the departure lounge at Keflavik International Airport. (Nikon D850, Tamron SP 15–30mm f/2.8 Di VC USD. RAW processing in DxO PhotoLab 3.1; Editing in Adobe Photoshop.)

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. […]

Down to the Sea in Shots

California / Nature / Photo Log / Photography / Seascapes

January 1, 2020 — Sonoma County coast The clouds parted. The sky drama left us. But the sea drama came to take its place. Weather alerts. High surf warnings. Rip currents. Watch out for sneaker waves. I saw a complete idiot take his cocker spaniel onto the beach, only to run back seconds later. He was bucking for a Darwin Award. I found a low, but safe, vantage point. Hundreds of frames were shot. This […]

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
