Sunset at Wahiba Sands desert in Oman. Half an hour before sunset there was no wind and bright sunshine. At sunset, the wind picked up and the sands on the desert floor swirled around our feet. It was not the sunset I was hoping for, but I am happy with this shot that sort of reminds me of a picture my parents have on their wall of elephants in Africa. The colours are similarly muted. It may be the shape of the trees. Anyway, here it is. I hope you like it. Pictures of camels and sand dunes may follow.
This weekend we spent a day on the Gower in South Wales. This is Worm’s Head in Rhossili. It can be reached when the tide is out along a quite “awkward to walk over” causeway.
I took this back in 2007, with an Canon Rebel XT (350D) – an entry level DSLR, handheld and standing on the some scaffolding four storeys up in a pretty dangerous location. Things I didn’t know in 2007. 1) For landscape ALWAYS SHOOT WITH A TRIPOD. 2) ALWAYS SHOOT IN RAW. That said, I was pleased that I got a different composition than the standard picture of the Seattle skyline, as it was not taken in Kerry Park which is pretty standard and where I got this picture (on a tripod, with an ND filter, in RAW) some years later on a winter’s day.
After the bustling streets of St Ives, a sunset trip to Cape Cornwall is a beautifully peaceful fillip. One of my favourite places in Cornwall it is wonderful place to watch the sun go down sitting on the rocks and thinking about the past and the future.
Another great show with some brilliant performers. Well done Stageworks!
This is the second year I have been invited to shoot Stageworks Graduation Show. I managed to snap a few shots in some rehearsals. The entire set of full resolution, watermark free pictures – “X”, studio work, dress rehearsal and final performance and presentations – will be available on a DVD for £20. Orders will be taken at the final performance, or by contacting me directly.
Thanks for allowing me to be part of your special day and best of luck for the next part of your adventure.
One of the most amazing trips I’ve been lucky enough to go on was to New Zealand over Christmas and New Year in 2013/14. Towards the end of our trip we went on a boat trip on Milford Sound. We had great weather on the first day, kayaking and swimming from the boat. Taking pictures of the waterfalls that cascade down the sides of the fjords. The next morning we woke up to mist and rain and fog. A totally different experience.
Looking forward to the some more of these sunsets over my favourite beach.
I shot this image in 2007 one during an extended work break in Vancouver. We had a good meal in some bar & grill place. I dusted it off for a Getty stock call but the image. I found out that I used to shoot in JPEG (not RAW) and it’s a little soft and therefore not up to get over the Getty quality bar, but I quite like it nevertheless.
