Stormy Greenland

Stormy Greenland

Or a storm clearing

Stormy Greenland

It was fun watching the storm clear in the Fjords of Scoresby Sound, Greenland! In this area of the Fjord, many of these mountain peaks are 1000-2000m or roughly 3000-6000ft tall! I had seen images from Greenland and this area, but I never found any that accurately displayed the size and scope of these peaks. Sadly, my image above doesn’t do them justice either! This area is also a narrow channel and the mountains rise straight up on both sides. And to think that our boat of 20 people were the only humans with miles and miles(or km’s and km’s!)

Greenland unlike any place I’ve ever visited made me realize how big and amazing our Earth is!

Yes, we live in unsettled times but we also live in amazing times in that travel is possible to the far ends of the Earth.

Discover what’s possible and Go!

Zoomin’ Towards Christmas

Zoomin’ Towards Christmas

Christmas Tree Bokeh! Over the years I’ve seen blurred images from Christmas lights and thought, that’s cool! Once in awhile I’d give it a go.

Picking the Right Time of Day

Picking the Right Time of Day

Recently I had the opportunity to capture a scene at Mid-Morning and at Sunset and the difference is striking!

Sandstone X Marking the Spot!

Floating Ice

Floating Ice

Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon Something soothing about these large chunks of glacier ice that are floating through the lagoon out to the ocean. This was one of the few times I’ve been to the lagoon with almost no wind. Long exposures are difficult here as the ice chunks flow. Long exposures are a great way to…
