Kirkjufell mountan or the church mountain. I hiked early in the morning to do some shots and the sun came just out, to illuminate it a bit. Sea level was low, so i could walk on the coast around it. There is a lot of pictures with the waterfall next on it, but i tried a bit different perspective :)
I remember seeing a picture like this a long time ago. I knew at that point that I would have to go and experience it for myself one day. After some research, it turns out that if you wait until the end of the Summer the sun sets right at the top of the valley resulting in this magnificent sunset! I still feel like the picture doesn’t even do it justice!
It was a gruelling climb up Y Garn (947m), North Wales in the dark this particular morning, with the objective of capturing the sunrise from the top. It was well worth the total exhaustion! As the sun rose higher we then headed over towards Glyder Fawr (1001m) to get better views across the Snowdonia mountain range. As we came over the ridge this was the view that confronted us. A stunning spectacle of light and shadows created my mist/haze over the mountain tops and valleys. Swapping the wide angle lens for a zoom lens enabled capturing of the full impact of the layered light.
This climb to Roy’s Peak seemed like a great idea when I read the description on New Zealand’s Department of Conservation’s website. “Easy Walk”, they said. After a painstaking 3-hour climb, my feet were practically bleeding and I was quite dehydrated. The only thing I wanted to do was run back down to go back to my hotel—but not before taking some shots of the exquisite view.
I was hiking in the Isle of Skye with a group of friends and we started playing a little game. Every time we would see a nice mountain peak someone would have to run to that peak. When we passed that little peak we almost didn’t notice it as it was not that impressive and the light, at that moment, was not that good. But still, my friends turned around and look back, thinking for a few seconds and then decided to run there. When he stopped running, the light appeared and all of sudden the place was magical.
I captured this beautiful mountain scape scene while driving through Passo Fedaia in northern Italy. It was early in the morning, and the light was gentle so you could see the layers of the landscape extend out toward the rugged mountains in the back.
The place resides in north-eastern part of India, spread across Nagaland and Manipur. It takes 5 hours of trekking to reach this place, and by the time you do its already late in the evening, so no sight-seeing.You rest for the night in a guesthouse at the top of the hill. As the chill of the morning wakes you up and you go out see the first light and feel its warmth, you surprising get this spectacular breathtaking view. Every time I look at the picture, it reminds me of that morning, that calm atmosphere, the fresh air, the rich colors of nature, a true paradise far away from reality.
This photo was taken atop Padar Island in Indonesia. I was fortunate enough to be invited by Tourism Indonesia to visit as a state guest to capture their country through my own interpretation of how I view their beautiful country. Obtaining this photo was not an easy feat as we had to speed boat 3 hours from land to the island, followed by a small dinghy bringing us to shore, and a hike up a dirt/rock covered track (kudos to my model for doing so with a dress!) all whilst chasing the sunset light to reach the top.
I had wanted to visit this church for a long time. Standing alone on a hill above the town of Vik in Iceland, theres no where quite like it. It’s such a stark and dramatic place and it didn’t disappoint. We had some moody skies but when the sun came out and lit up the landscape I knew it would make a great shot.
