Greenland is one of my favorite places on this water planet. The combination of glaciers, icebergs and fjords is breath taking.

This image is of a small harbor in Sisimiut, Greenland. It is amazing the Greenlanders have managed to survive on the edges of this wonderful island.

f/8 @ 1/100, ISO 200, 70mm

Thunderstorms are one of the more powerful forces in nature. Thunderstorms in the desert are especially strong as the desert heat feeds energy into the storm to cause massive build-ups. The setting sun in White Sands National Monument shows the inherit fury in this storm.

I enjoy the creative freedom of the Canon 8-15mm fisheye ultra-wide angle lens.

I was driving through the country on SR 96 in NM and saw this gnarled fence post with the sun reflecting off the barbed wire. The curve of the fence posts is natural but the fisheye let me curve the trees to match the fence posts.

I had my camera with me while enjoying dinner and happened to notice the young girl and sailboat both silhouetted by the sunset and was lucky enough to capture it.

The iceberg graveyard on the Antarctica Peninsula is a magical place where the currents and winds steer huge icebergs into a bay where they become grounded and stationary until the sun melts them away.

I just returned from my first trip to Greenland and will be posting more images over the next week or so. The landscapes and icebergs were awesome and the people extremely friendly. I definitely plan to return.

Beautiful contrast of turbulent stormy clouds and smooth ice and water +Walter Thirion - I have come to love cloudy skies in the polar regions after misguidedly wishing for clear blue skies in Antarctica, the lower contrast in the air means the 'bergs behave better.  Thanks for sharing with #PolarThursday  and look forward to more shots of wonderful Greenland!

I like the effect using the 8-15mm fisheye gives in the slot canyon. Makes it really feel like you're in the canyon, not just observing it.

Tagline
“No man has the right to dictate what other men should perceive, create or produce, but all should be encouraged to reveal themselves, their perceptions and emotions, and to build confidence in the creative spirit.” – Ansel Adams
Introduction
After being in the high tech world for a few decades, I've started to spend more time on my love of photography. Landscapes, nature and conservation are continual themes and I like trying to capture that perfect moment when the light illuminates the landscape perfectly or the animal is acting just right.
