Distant Mist. Iceland.

Daily Photo – Distant Mist. Iceland.

While in Iceland, I traveled through a lowlands area early in the morning. A mist, a video game like mist, started moving quickly across the ground and through the distant hillocks. It was all so surreal that I barely remembered that I should be taking a photo of this. That was a strange feeling, since the whole reason I was there was to take photos! 🙂

The Blues. New Zealand.

I wish I lived closer to this lake in Tekapo so I could go out there more often to see all the pretty sunsets across the glacier-fed blue water. Whenever I do drive back and forth to Christchurch, though, I usually stop here for a bit! It’s actually one of the reasons I prefer the 4 hour drive to Christchurch from Queenstown rather than the 30 minute flight… there are so many places to stop and take photos!

Daily Photo – #354 from the Edition365 2021 Exhibition.

A few months back art3.io and the British Journal of Photography got in touch about an online exhibition and auction they were putting together which focused on life during the pandemic. This is the image that I chose to submit and you can see the OpenSea listing here. I recommend checking out the whole selection as there are some awesome photos in there. Also, you can virtually view the full show in a really cool interface here.

As for the image… I had quite a strange experience just before lockdown. I went to one of my favorite meditation and yoga retreats near my home in Queenstown named Aro Ha (the Maori for love), and I had some amazing deep sessions. One of them centred around the heart and the idea of being alone or being worthy of not-being-alone. It was quite wonderful and therapeutic, and I came out of it quite excited to engage with a lot of other people and stop being such a hermit. Well, just as that tricky universe continues to throw us curveballs, lockdown came into the present scene so I was forced to be alone for even longer. It seems the cycle of being alone and together are two sides of the same coin, and you can’t have one without the other as they are a reflection of the same truth.

The First Time I Ate Horse. Iceland.

Daily Photo – The First Time I Ate Horse. Iceland.

My friend Helga has been wonderful enough to invite me to her farm in Iceland many times. It’s always a fun trip up to the north to see her. But I always get a little lost. Finding the particular turn-in along this fjord is constantly a source of confusion, especially at night. I don’t know why it is so difficult to me, because after I get there, it is plain as day. And I’m sure all Icelanders think I am crazy… but it’s like a hidden door, fey and fleeting with the light, and you can only see it during certain portals of time.

Until the Cows Come Home. New Zealand.

Daily Photo – Until the Cows Come Home. New Zealand.

The South Island of New Zealand is absolutely huge. It looks tiny on the map, but it feels as big as California. Something else that makes it feel so big is hardly anyone lives on the South Island, so you can literally drive for hours and never see another car. This image was taken in the lakes area on the way to Lake Ohau.

Bora Bora Bora. Bora Bora.

Daily Photo – Bora Bora Bora. Bora Bora.

Here in Tahiti is one of the first places I took my family on an exotic location. The kids loved it. They basically stayed in the water 100% of the time. When I wasn’t playing with them, I would sneak away to take photos of this incredible archipelago.

Geothermal Genie. Iceland.

Daily Photo – Geothermal Genie. Iceland.

I’ve never really been the kind of person that attaches too much mystical meaning to shapes, but in this picture, I think I see a genie coming out of that geothermal vent. This was shot in Iceland on a rather chilly day. Here’s a fun fact. “Geysir” is the only Icelandic word that is used in English. I’m 98% sure this is true.

Sunrise Florida. USA

Daily Photo – Sunrise Florida. USA

Maybe I’ve been lucky, but every sunrise I’ve seen on the east coast of Florida has been absolutely beautiful. Even on days when it’s quite cloudy, the sun somehow manages to pop through and make the whole scene epic. Besides that, nothing beats a morning walk on the beach to clear your head and get you ready for the day! 🙂

Remarkables. New Zealand.

Mist and cloud on the mountains… from this far away, it looks like a mist is blowing across the tops of the mountains. It makes it all appear more dramatic than perhaps it really is while you are there. But I guess there is this idea of relative drama. If you are actually there on the mountain, it’s probably quite mild and pretty. But, from way back here, dozens of miles away, it looks much more intense.

Lenticulars. New Zealand.

Daily Photo – Lenticulars. New Zealand.

This is a new area I discovered near Arrowtown and Queenstown in New Zealand. When the grasses get long in the late summer, they move in the breeze. It’s almost like you can see the wind itself while standing there. Those flying-saucer-shaped clouds are quite rare and are called Lenticulars. When you’re a photographer, you get to collect all sorts of useless information like that.
