Shooting the Kofa mountains meant reacting to light instantaneously. As the light emerged from behind the mountains it spread in an angled fashion through the landscape below. One could anticipate where the light would hit next, and moving composition as the light changed while trying to contain excitement and not get attacked by the Cholla was challenging to say the least. The high dynamic range, ridiculous lens flares, intermittent sun star all added to the drama but the glow on those cacti forced me to keep on shooting
For all those times when waking up at 4.30 am is not a rewarding experience, there is a morning that makes it all worthwhile. This scene lasted for a few seconds and then the fog blanket made the valley invisible.
Being at a heavily photographed place meant trying to create an original comp. Got soaked quite a few times while trying to get this shot. But with a backdrop like that who can resist trying.
Seasonal transition in the Canadian rockies. I loved how the transition from warm to cool was portrayed from the landscape to the sky.
Driving past villages filled with paddy fields, backdrop of mountains, rich golden sunsets, coconut trees galore.... how fortunate are we to be living in an era where a mere day’s travel can transport us to a corner of the world so completely different from our own.
Cinque Torri, Dolomites, Italy
I am always enamored by flower filled meadows with a backdrop of mountains. The quintessential landscape photograph which we all aspire for. Having drooled over so many of the images shared on this platform, was finally able to generate one which makes me smile every time I look at it. This image is a blend of about 6-8 images for focus stacking as well as a perspective blend for the foreground. Stacked images were manually blended in PS.Please view in lightbox.
Big Sur, California.
When a single exposure comes together so beautifully. When every visual element is in harmony. How blessed are we that get to witness this magical moment.
Had shared the horizontal comp before, really liked this vertical one too.
