Weight of Glory by VictorCarreiro

This is an update of an older image that I was no longer happy with. The cliffs of Davenport are beautiful and a great place to set up a camera and shoot until there ain’t no more more light. I couldn’t have asked for better conditions.

Before I went to photograph the famous Faraglioni di Acitrezza, I made a research to verify the position of the sun.
In autumn the sun rises between the two sea stacks, so I moved to that location with the intention to photograph the scene I imagined could be created.
When I arrived there I looked for a place where I could make a good composition and waited until the sun came out of the horizon.
In a few minutes the sun illuminated and heated the entire scene.

Sort of a weird comp here, I’ll admit. I for sure didn’t knock this one out of the park, but I was trying to include the little swirl on the left side. Maybe it works, maybe it doesn’t… I’m too dumb to figure it out! Got some pretty sweet light though, which is good because I’m a half-wit and easily excited over things like colors in the sky and swirly things in the water. I think most people who know me well will agree that I should be wearing a helmet most of the time.

Got some big tours with really cool dudes who don’t wear helmets coming up next year. Marcel Van Oosten was kind enough to honor me with the privilege to lead a tour to Namibia for him next year… I’m guaranteeing it will be epic. Also my good friend Arild Heitmann and I will be leading another crazy tour next March to shoot the Lofoten Islands… it’s always a successful trip. Check out the links above for all the info you need!

Duncansby Head by annie7

We went to Duncansby Head on the one and only horrendous day on our holiday weatherwise. It was blowing a gale and the rain was driving across the sea stacks. In actual fact I had a job to stand let alone take a picture.

Duncansby Head is the most north-easterly part of the Scottish mainland, including even the famous John o’ Groats. The headland juts into the North Sea, with the Pentland Firth to its north and west and the Moray Firth to its south.

Pins and Needles by RyanDyar

It took me a few minutes to figure out exactly what the hell kept falling on my head while I was shooting this day. Turned out to be nesting birds on the cliff behind me dropping rocks on me in protest to my presence… sounds a lot like my lovelife prior to meeting the gal I was lucky enough to marry a couple weeks ago.

Anyways, I’m gearing up for some more arctic travel here in a few weeks with my good friend Arild Heitmann. We also have another trip next March that is filling fast! I’m willing to bet these trips to the Arctic will be even more productive than our last. I can’t wait!

Also, I just released a new post-processing instructional video a few days back. It’s packed with some unique techniques and theories about processing you may not find anywhere else. People seem to really be enjoying the videos and have had nothing but great things to say, so I *think* they are helping people… it’s been awesome to see the many before/after shots people have been emailing me. Be sure to check the videos out if you are into that sort of thing. It’s all on my website, as well as more photos, photo tour info, processing instruction via Skype like everyone else is doing, etc, etc.

Colossal Stacks of Wharariki, New Zealand by PatrickMarsonOng

These enormous sea stacks stands guard on the shores of Wharariki beach. Upon seeing my photog buddy catching the sunset on the far end of the beach, I hurried back and took a shot that would show scale of how big these giants are. If your planning to visit New Zealand soon, I would really recommend that you make room for this on your itinerary! Cheers guys!
