My most recent work taken over the last 6 months is kept in this gallery before I move it into the portfolio galleries for the different countries. I try to keep this page as up-to-date as possible, but sometimes I fall behind.  My blog and social media feeds are generally a good representation of what I'm shooting at the moment, while this gallery tends to contain images I've spent some time processing which I intend to keep in the portfolio of my best work.


THE DOLOMITES

Alpe di Siusi

We were cursed with clear blue skies when we were shooting at the Alpe di Siusi, so I used the rising sun casting shadows across the scene to create some drama in the image.

Carezza Abstract

Sometimes, using a telephoto lens to zoom into a part of an image and remove the context can create an interesting perspective on a well known place

ICELAND


Godafoss

A self portrait at the waterfalls at Godafoss in northern Iceland at midnight. The colourful sunset we wished for never materialised, but so much of Iceland looks great beneath moody clouds.

Godafoss Sunrise

Another angle of the beautiful falls at Godafoss in northern Iceland just before the sun came up.

Vestrahorn

In summer in Iceland sunsets and sunrises blend into one another and on the evening I was shooting these peaks on on the south eastern corner of the country I had some of the most amazing light and colour I've ever experienced in Iceland. This is a 6 image stitched panorama of the black sand dunes and mountain range in this incredible place.

Vestrahorn Dawn

In the long blue hour between sunset and sunrise in Iceland's summer, we were blessed with some incredible light and colour at the peaks pf Vestrahorn on Iceland's south eastern coast

Landmannalaugar Light

Every time I go back to Landmannalauger in the Iceland Highland I’m always transfixed by this view along the valley with it’s rhyolite mountains that catch the evening light so beautifully. I’ve shot variations on this image every time I’ve been there and never get bored of it.

Landmannalaugar Rainbow

Brilliant light after a rain shower in brought a rainbow above the colourful rhyolite hills of Landmannalauger in Iceland's Highlands

Emstrur Midnight

I captured a panorama from this exact spot on my previous trip when the light was wonderful and the sky filled with colourful clouds. This image taken beneath heavy midnight clouds somehow fits the mood of the place better, with it’s black sand desert disappearing in all direction as far as the eye can see.

Haifoss

The waterfalls at Haifoss are a vertigo-inducing 150m high and standing anywhere near the edge always makes me feel uncomfortable. This image was taken as cloud blew up the valley shortly before we were enveloped in mist and raincloud.

Hnausapollur Crater

The incredible blue water of the Hnausapollur crater lake in the Iceland Higlands. I scrambled up here sometime before sunrise on the recent Iceland workshop to get an elevated view of this awesome place. Photos can’t really do justice to how big this lake is, nor how up were to shoot it.

Sigöldugljufur

The water falls in multiple streams as this river is split on it’s passage across the plains of Iceland’s highlands before collecting again into this beautiful coloured river.

Highland Light

An unusual capture shot straight into the light as the sun sets behind the peaks of Landmannalauger in Iceland’s Highlands

Stórasúla

The peak of Stórasúla shot during an aerial flight above the highlands. The views from the plane were absolutely amazing, the patterns of green and black with patches of white snow. Iceland is an amazing country, and the views from the air above the highlands are some of the most stunning I've ever seen.

When shooting from a plane it's important to have as fast a shutter speed as possible to keep the image sharp. As depth of field isn't a problem from a plane, then shooting at a fast aperture, as well as raising the ISO allow shutter speeds of between 1/500 and 1/1000,

Braids

The incredible river braids of Iceland rivers get these colours and textures from the silt they pick up as they come down from the glaciers. It contrasts with the black river beds and the colourful moss and algae. I captured this image as we flew across the river deltas of the south of the country in a light aircraft.

Markaflojt

The braids of Iceland's Markaflojt river. The waters run down from the glaciers of Iceland's central highlands creating incredible patterns as they cross the black volcanic sands which can be seen from a low flying light aircraft.

Markaflojt II

Another image of the river braid in Iceland taken from a low flying light aircraft.


TUSCANY


Vitaleta

Cipressi

In spring time the Tuscany fields are full of flowers and colour

Cappella di Vitaleta

This famous little chapel standing on top of a hill amidst fields of cereal is an incredibly photographic spot both at sunrise and sunset. This image was captured at dawn as a ray of sun broke through the heavy cloud and picked out the church.

Val d'Orcia

A drone shot taken from above the fields around San Quirico d'Orcia at the end of the day in springtime.
