Colors of Valensole || France 

Scouting shooting locations all the previous day, I was absolutely enchanted by the beautiful lavender fields in the Provence region of Southern France. When I woke up early the next morning to photograph sunrise though, I almost pinched myself to make sure the colors were actually real. When the first sunlight hit these rows of lavender, the soft golden rays transformed the already beautiful hues into something straight out of a fairy tale. The first and last five minutes of light are absolutely spectacular. 

Naomi and I were the first ones on the scene at 5:15AM and shortly after, a bus full of 30 Korean photographers quickly unloaded and set up an arsenal of tripods and cameras. They were a friendly bunch and we all exchanged smiles and laughs, clearly excited about the potential sunrise ahead. 

When the sun began to rise and this scene unfolded, one of the older gentlemen looked at the rows of lavender, put his arms out and said in a awestruck voice, “kamsahamnida!” As a result, most of the group burst into laughter and applause. Stuck in the same moment of joy, I just couldn’t help myself. I started to clap and with a smile I said, Kamsahamnida!” 

On another note, sorry it took me so long to post the final version of this photo. With my shooting schedule here, we were averaging around 4 hours a sleep per night. That didn’t exactly leave much time for post-processing. ;)

Wow. Just wow
Aegean Paradise || Santorini

There are certain places in the world that have the power to take my breath away and the beautiful Greek Island of Santorini definitely tops that very short list. Just looking at this photo transports me back to the moment of being there, watching this incredible scene unfold, and (of course) enjoying a cold glass of Aegean white wine in the process. 

While I usually work in wide landscape format, I really wanted to highlight the blue domed churches, a distinct and famous element of the Greek Island architecture. This is the vertical format result of one of my dual camera setups. While my D800 captured the entire scene at 14mm, I used the D700 to capture this alternate (zoomed in) view.
