London After the Rain

Daily Photo – London After the Rain

There are several ways to enhance your chances of a city-based image looking good. Night (lights) is one… movement is another… sometimes you get really lucky and it has rained. Here I got lucky and the universe aligned to give me them all. 🙂

The Ship and the Tower

Daily Photo – The Ship and the Tower

I love it when two (or more) pieces of art come together randomly at Burning Man. It makes for such epic scenes.

The Pena Palace of Sintra

Daily Photo – The Pena Palace of Sintra

There are all sorts of really cool, old castles in Europe but few of them are as eye-catching as Pena Palace in Sintra, not far from Lisbon. From what I remember this is a Romanticist style completed in the 1850s. It’s a brave move not to let it age/weather like many other structures over there. Without doubt the correct decision.

Ibiza Sunset

Daily Photo – Ibiza Sunset

I think that it’s likely that when most people think of Ibiza they think of drinking, dancing and generally craziness. What they maybe don’t realise is that the island has some fantastically character filled coastline. Here’s a little chunk of it at sunset.

The Aurora Australis

Daily Photo – The Aurora Australis

Down here in the Southern Hemisphere our Aurora is the Australis rather than Borealis. Different name, same awesome. Here’s a little glimpse of it one night down at the tip of the South Island in Invercargill.

Experimental in Antarctica

Daily Photo – Experimental in Antarctica

One of the highlights from my time in Antarctica was exploring the old huts which were used by early explorers. They were filled with loads of cool old equipment, some crazy stuff like massive iron cookers which were manufactured in the UK down to all these scientific items. And chocolate…

Sunset in Oman

Daily Photo – Sunset in Oman

While we were in Oman I had the Hasselblad H5D with me to play with. It was huge, heavy and a bunch of fun. Here’s one of the shots I captured while seeing what it could do as far as dynamic range goes.

Houseboats

Daily Photo – Houseboats

Here are some cool houseboats in India… what wasn’t so cool is that I think this was the same day I had an ill-fated quadcopter flight that ended in a rather large splash and a never to be seen again device… Note to self… launching and then trying to land on a moving boat isn’t the easiest thing to do.
