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.
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.
We spent a lovely day walking from our cool AirBnB in Hell’s Kitchen to walk the High Line and the from there to the World Trade Centre, City Hall and then we found ourselves at the Brooklyn Bridge. You can’t shoot it without hundreds of people in the shot, so I just went with the flow.

I spent a few days in New York at the weekend. Love those towers of dreams and toil and consumption. I’ve only visited the city a few times but its energy is contagious.
Taken in Havana last year, I enjoyed shooting the classic cars in Cuba.
This shot was taken in Snowdonia a few weeks ago. There was not much wind so reflections around the edges of the lake were reasonably good. The purples of the trees in the left foreground particularly caught my eyes.
So if you followed my last blog, you will know I’ve been playing around a new “darkroom” system and using USA pics to try it out. Here is a shot I took on Shenandoah’s Skyline Drive at sunrise earlier this year. It was a truly remarkable drive and I hope I get back again sometime. I hope everyone has a happy weekend.
Here’s a bonus shot taken the same morning.
