Iceland Highlands with 100 Mp

April 8th, 2017

Last Year in August I spent 10 days travelling around the Southern Highlands of Iceland with my Phase One 100 Megapixel camera, the (relatively) newly released Phase One XF and the IQ3-100 back.  Along with a range of Phase One, Schneider Kreuznach and Mamiya lenses it’s a very heavy camera bag!  So is it worth carrying all that gear?  Are the results really that good?  Well, yes.

Scoresby Sound Icebergs

March 19th, 2017

Scoresby sound in South East Greenland is the largest Fjord complex on Earth, it is also the least populated and has one of the most isolated communities on Earth….  Interesting stats, but the best bits are that it is completely unique and amazingly beautiful.  Seeing Scoresby Sound by boat during the brief far Northern hemisphere summer is definitely one of the highlights of my career so far.  To sail around surrounded by sheer rock walls hundreds of metres high in fjords that are hundreds of metres deep (I spent some time time watching the depth sounder on the boat completely awed), while massive ice sculptures that dwarfed the boat floated serenely past is truly something to behold.

Lake Argyle Skyline

January 4th, 2013

Happy New Year,  I’m back at work and it all begins anew.  At the end of my photographic tour to the Bungle Bungles in 2011 we took the group on a cruise on Lake Argyle.  It was a perfectly still afternoon without a breath of wind, a perfect day for cruising on a beautiful lake with the Carr Boyd ranges for a backdrop.

Invisible Horizon of Lake Argyle, Kimberley Region of Western Australia

Islands hanging in space

Still waters of Lake Argyle

At one point somewhere near he middle of Lake Argyle, just as the setting sun was making the Kimberley Sandstone come alive and the reflections were rippling on the water, this image presented itself.  It seems to me that the water continued on and on up into the sky with no horizon visible, while the islands in the distance seemed to just hang in space.

The image only remained for a few seconds, and the Linhof Technorama is not the easiest camera to hand hold… and keeping the horizon straight with the 72mm Schneider Kreuznach lens was a challenge (35mm equivalent of about 17mm), but i think its worked and so did the AIPP as they gave me a silver award for it in last years APPAs.

Ivanhoe Crossing in flood

January 19th, 2012

It’s half way through January and i still have my gallery Christmas opening hours up as my last blog post… so much for new years resolutions!  Oh well, i can only move on from here and hope i can do better.  With that in mind i have this great image from Ivanhoe Crossing just out of Kununurra, in the East Kimberley Region, that i took back in July of last year.

Road Closed…!

The water is still raging after the huge wet season, and as you can see, the road is still closed…  I just love the irony of this actually being a road.  I think its something only someone who has been to the North of Australia would fully appreciate.  I’ve driven my car across this crossing before (not this trip!) and i have fished for Barramundi out in the middle of it (unsuccessfully unfortunately), but i don’t think i’d be wading out there now.
