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.


ICELAND


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.

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.

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.

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.

 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.

 


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

PORTUGAL


Ursa Storm Light

I’ve been to Praia da Ursa many times to shoot seascapes over the years, but this weekend was the first time I’ve ever been there when a storm front has blown in bringing with it a wonderful clear light alongside almost black skies. I've always believed that to get the best waterscapes you need to get your feet wet and this image was made with the tripod in the water and pressed down into the sand so it remained stable when the waves moved around it.

Louriçal Dusk

Sometimes overcast skies and dull weather can really bring out the mood in a landscape.  This beach on Portugal's west coast is one of my favourites and I've shot it in many different conditions.  The head skies we had in the spring really matched the atmosphere of the place.

Vasco da Gama
