The Promise by AlisterBenn

Taken on the last day we were on Iceland last a few weeks ago, this image has been one of the hardest I have ever put together. 11 vertical frames at 14mm handheld and manually blended, warped and encouraged into this 16:9 image. Handholding it slow enough to get some flow in the water was the least of the challenges!

This is in an area I have been exploring for a few years now, in summer the rocks are carpeted in a fragile moss and the delicate environment t takes some careful handling. In winter, with everything frozen and covered in snow it was actually a bit easier to access.

Surprised by Joy by VictorCarreiro

I finally have a website! It’s far from being finished, but at least it’s up and running.

I took a day trip to the Sonoma Coast to see what I could find. It was actually frustrating and raining right up until sunset. I couldn’t find a decent comp and I had slipped on some rocks about dozen times until my knees were bleeding. Finding this little stream that fed into the ocean was a nice surprise.
