Last week I was looking through flickr and saw a great shot of this mountain taken by one of my contacts, it spurred me on to go back to my files and see what I'd got from here, and from this trip.

Lómagnúpur Mountain stands at 688ft high, a Volcanic beast that seemingly just rises up out of nothing to form this awe inspiring sight that dominates the whole area.

We were quite lucky with this shot as it can be nororiously hard to photograph with the top often being covered in cloud or other conditions that don't lend themself to landscape photography. At the end of this day we were driving past and the conditions were basically perfect, no low cloud and the plenty of water in the pool at the fore that was perfectly still allowing for a full reflection, we ended up shooting here for about an hour in the end up until, and through sunset.

This is a super wide take on it, shot at 14mm and a somewhat eye watering 515 seconds (over 8 minutes) exposure.

With there not being much wind about I wanted a long exposure to create movement in the sky to add to the dramatic feel of the image, I don't really like the Long Exposure calculators you get on apps, too often I find they can be quite far out, it was a case of taking one image, checking the histogram and seeing how much I had left to play with on the right hand side and then coming up with a time, plus adding further time on for the dwindling light at sunset. The histogram off this shot is pretty much stretched left to right, black to white, giving me everything I needed plus the extremely long time gives plenty of sky movement.

Just as well it worked out really as you will only get 1 or 2 chances at it due to the long duration and the light dying off.

Unplanned shoots can sometimes throw some magic your way, as did this, what a great end to a day.

We just finished up an amazing trip to Alaska! We got to see some of the best displays of the Northern Lights I've ever seen, explored ice caves, photographed the majestic Brooks Range, went dog sledding, soaked in hot springs, and captured the winter wildlife (caribou, fox, lynx, and moose). Such a great time with some awesome photographers!!

A brief, dreamlike moment as the incoming waters of the Gironde swirl around the wooden posts of this beautiful old fishing hut. A morning where the pastel tones seemed never ending, the lines and wires and posts appearing to fade into the sky as the sun slowly rose. A morning which has often filled my thoughts over the last year. Of all the places that I’ve been lucky enough to photograph, this is one of my absolute favorites. And just typing these words transports me back to that day- my tiny office tucked away at the top of the house is suddenly filled with the scent of wild garlic, the sun streaming through the skylight onto my book cluttered desk reminding me of how good the warm air felt against my skin. And if I close my eyes and lean back in my chair, I can still hear the gentle lap of water and the creak of timbered joints moving with the ebb and flow of the tide.

And this makes me happy. There’s an organic feel to these structures which really appeals to me – a kind of romance if you like. In a way, it’s very similar to the feeling that I have for old cars. Yes, I know they’re flawed and temperamental and liable to leave me stranded in the middle of nowhere in a puddle of fluid– but that’s kind of exciting to me. They were designed to be imperfect and therefore they’re interesting. In a world of ones and zeros with its order and sterility, places like this have a warmth and a soul which simply cannot be replicated by programs and lines of code.

Of course, I should be typing this on an old Remington, the clack of keys filling this space with a beautifully analogue staccato beat. But there’s always a balance to be had. And just like I won’t be calculating my tax return on an abacus, I accept that modern life has some very useful things to offer. Like this computer.

Embrace the imperfect and have a fabulous weekend.
