The Fire Within by MarselvanOosten

As we’re nearing the end of 2015, I finally have some time to look back at all the places that I’ve visited and photographed this year. It’s been one big rollercoaster ride, and although it was a lot of fun, it’s good to have some time off and reflect. And to process my images, as that seems to be the one thing that I never have time for. 414,733 images on my hard drives, of which I processed 6,664. I won’t get bored anytime soon.

Well, this is #6,665 and it was shot earlier this year on our Iceland Winter Wilderness tour. It’s pretty straightforward, but I liked how the light of the rising sun seems to illuminate that chunk of ice from the inside.

I used the LucrOit filter system on my Nikon 14-24/2.8 to slow down my shutter speeds.

Waiting for the storm… by bzh88

I took this picture a couple of minutes before a heavy rain on the beautiful beach of Penhat (Crozon peninsula, Brittany)

Kaboom! by MarkMetternich

WORKSHOPS
Post Processing Video Tutorials
Some of the most massive breakers in the world can be seen on the Oregon Coast (USA) when the conditions are just right. This one (taken several days ago) was about 200 feet (61 meters) high. To see it in person is simply astonishing.
 I left the two people on the cliff, in the photo, for scale.


If you are interested in a Mega Pacific Coast Tour simply refer to my website. I lead photography workshops year around all over the world, as my full time living.



Thank you very much for looking!

Pacific Tsunamic Fury by MarkMetternich

WORKSHOPS
Post Processing Video Tutorials
Violent and extremely chaotic Tsunami-like storm surf pounds the Pacific Coastline on Oregon’s South coastline. An awesome welcome back for me.

The person wearing the yellow rain gear was left in for a sense of scale. He is standing at 100 feet high (over 30 meters). The image was taken just as surf was crashing over us from 100 feet below.

This is a single shot, with almost no processing aside from minor color corrections.

Thank you very much for looking and I hope you enjoy (or are scared by) the image. 🙂

Angry Sea by NickPage

With 35′ swells predicted off the Washington Coast, I knew I had to pack up my things and head across the state and try to get some shots. I went to Cape Disappointment, which ironically had lived up to its name on my previous visit.. not this time. Awesome swells racked the shore and made for a great morning of shooting
