Gullfoss – Iceland

_S5A5377-Edit 2

I can never get tired of looking at images from Iceland.  This is an extract of Gullfoss (Golden Waterfall), one of the most popular waterfalls in Iceland and a key stop on the the Golden Circle.  It is a multi tiered waterfall on the river Hvítá. The first is a wide but shallow three step fall and then it drops in two tall stages. The first is about 36 feet and the second about 70 feet.  This image is a small extract of the final drop. Canon 5D Mk II, 70-200 f2.8 at 200 mm, f/10, 0.8 seconds, ISO 250.

Yosemite and Mono Lake Workshop Day 1

After driving from San Francisco to the Yosemite Valley – our first destination was to capture “Tunnel View” at sunset.  i will be posting images that were captured by participants as I receive them.  I shill have a few spots open for the next two workshops in Acadia and the Cape.

The weather was exceptional and the clouds were perfect for photography.  The first image is a late sunset image where the light is just kissing the top of El Capitan:

This second image is from the same location capturing the brilliant after glow:

The flight path over the valley will ruin most images but on occasion a dissipating con trail can be an interesting feature:

This next image is a 20 second exposure of the “blue hour” looking left from Tunnel View:

Before packing up and returning for dinner I decoded to shoot one more image to capture the valley and the stars.  The face of El Capitan and Half Dome show the lights from climbers headlamps as the bed down on the rock face for the night.
