An image from last year taken at Estrahorn in the far South East of Iceland, it's very remote out here and feels it too.

I've not taken anything recently that I'm happy to upload on here and I'm not uploading possibly below par images just for the sake of it, so I'll continue to find shots from the archive until (hopefully) I get something worth posting soon...

This was shot at Sunset with the low sun illuminating the fantastic and dramatic form of the Eystrahorn, this is shot a lot less than it more famous neighbour at Vestrahorn.

There is a headland here that basically has 2 beaches either side, the beach to the East had enormous breakers coming pounding in, which were great to shoot but the sunlight was far more prominent on this side hitting the gnarly tops.

I'd posted a few from this glorious morning a while ago, but I came across this one as I'm using it for an online talk I'm doing next week, and decided to share it on here as it's been a good while since I posted the others..

Loch Rusky, Trossachs, on what turned out to be a real classic morning weather wise....

I did wonder at the time whether or not I would get away with it with keeping the light source in the frame as the sun had broken the horizon and the majority of the mid level mist had gone further along the Loch..

Adding some extra interest in the scene the lone fishermans boat had been left in a very thoughtful position for sunrise, and it's not often you beat a fisherman to a fishing spot in a morning, but this was around 5AM..

Well what's this!? some actual new material?... with the recent relaxation of the seemingly never ending lockdown rules it was time to escape from the confines of the house with the camera to a real location, and one that I hadn't been to for some time.

The weather looked quite good for sunset so I just decided to go for it, even if it didn't work out I really wasn't bothered as it was as much about getting out into nature again, with a view to look at at, a bit of exploration, and some more practice flying my drone, basically it was just GREAT to get out!

Mike Tonge decided to come up as well and meet me for sunset so there was the added bonus of some company as well on the jaunt. The few hours I had up here seemed to go very quickly and all to soon it was time to find a spot for the impending sunset, this one was chosen with the hope the the smaller tree could be fitted 'inside' the larger one by getting low down, which worked out really well, the weather had gone from being sunny and perfectly still to blowing a gale from nowhere which made keeping the tree still a quite hard task, but it wouldn't be landscape photography without a challenge! I had bumped the ISO up to 400 to deal with that, but this is shot on the base ISO so I must have just got lucky for a second!

The sun vanished totally into the low cloud and haze shortly after this shot, knowing there wouldn't be an 'aftershow' of any kind tonight, we made our way back down the hill and out of the strong winds before setting of home. A great use of an evening.

March 2021, and still rooting away through the archives due to no new material... the only good side to it is that I really am going through my images properly from shoots that could easily have been overlooked.

This shot in the height of Winter at Godafoss in Northern Iceland, at what has to be one of my favourite locations in the Country, shot at sunrise, the few snow free rocks around the falls are catching the early light nicely.

It'll be the best part of a year before I'll be able to get over here again, if we are allowed, really miss the place, along with everywhere else! Hopefully not long now until things start to improve and I can pick up a camera again in the places I want to go to.

The morning after the night before....

A few miles South of Tromso in the Arctic Circle, Norway, on a farm where I was staying for a few days. The night before had been an incredible Northern Lights display, still the best I've ever seen, but after a late night, no rest for the wicked and up for sunrise back into the deep snow again.

This scene was just at the rear of the farm, the light around these parts seems to be very different with loads of pinks and purples often visible in the early and late hours, this mornings sunrise, although nothing special was still enough to give this gorgeous lighting onto the mountains to the rear here, and pick out all the detail in the snow laden trees, with the little red hut seemingly perfectly placed to finish the scene off.

Despite being the coldest place I've ever been to, still to this day Norway is by far my favourite place I've ever been, and somewhere I really want to explore a lot more when we are able to again.
