Hi everyone. Well, there has been a bit of buzz surrounding the new release of Fuji's pro-level mirrorless camera - the X-H1. Personally I vacillated as to whether I would add this camera to my current kit, which includes the Fuji GFX 50s and a Fuji X-E3. Much of my work revolves around medium format landscape photography with some occasional diving into street and portrait. Though I have carried a Fuji X-T2 and an X-Pro 2 in the past, I sold them in order to make the leap to the GFX. I found over time that I actually missed my X-T2, in terms of being a quasi back-up body along with my GFX. Additionally, when I am shooting on the street I do like to have a second body so I can use two different prime lenses.
My experience in Iceland surfaces frequently in my memory. It is like a constant shadow that tags along on a sunny day. I try not to get to high or low about trips, or to set any expectations for that matter, simply to set aside any possibility of disappointment or preconceptions. I like to plan, but then set that aside in my subconscious, so I can just be open to the experience. The fact is this trip totally blew away my preconceptions as we traversed the island from waterfalls to glacial lagoons, with each bend in the road revealing another stunning location. Rain or shine did not matter. In every cloak it wore Iceland was beautiful.
Jölkusárlón Ice Beach is one of the special locations in Iceland, and was on my "must" see, must photograph list when I traveled to Iceland in June of 2017. Located along the Southeast coast, the Jölkusárlón Ice Lagoon drains off of the main glacier and flows through a narrow channel into the ocean. Ice calving off of glaciers in Vatnajökull National Park enters the lagoon, and slowly over time, moves through the calm waters of the lagoon and then into the small channel that leads out to the ocean.
As a follow up to my last two posts here is a two-frame horizontal panorama shot on location just outside of Crested Butte, Colorado. Though I like the color variations, there is just something perfect about a black and white. I framed this as a panorama to give more depth and vastness to the mountains and the cloud-filled sky.
Hi everyone. Here is another image I made on a recent trip to Colorado. I was out in Crested Butte to photograph Dean Dillon's Mountain High Music Festival and in between the concerts I managed to squeeze in some landscape work. I was pretty lucky to catch this scene with some amazing clouds rolling over the mountains with the soft glow from the setting sun.
Can you imagine having this scene to greet you every time you walked out onto your balcony? I know I could certainly get used to this. I was in Crested Butte to help out with the Mountain High Music Festival and this was the view from the artists gathering suite on the fifth floor of the hotel. I had to wait for a few days for the right conditions and my patience paid off with this stunning display.
