View to the Ocean - Phase One XF, IQ3 100, 75-150 @ 115mm, f/11, 20s, ISO 50.

The view of the ocean sitting on that bench is so serene first thing in the morning.

Boat and Boathouse - Phase One XF, IQ3 100, 75-150 @ 75mm, f/10, 0.8s, ISO 50, 3 frame stack.

I really liked the color contrast in this scene. I wanted to have both the Canoe and the boathouse perfectly sharp which was easy using the automatic stacking feature in the XF.

Great Tabular Icebergs

One of the most incredible sights in the Southern Ocean are tabular icebergs. They are made from fresh water and are formed from having calved from an ice shelf. We saw several that were over a hundred meters high and a kilometer long on the side.

When I got down to this pocket beach, I slowly made my way across it making photos. I didn’t have my big overshoes or high boots so I wasn’t restricted in how far into the water I could go. I found a nice set of rocks I could use a foreground and a portrait composition made the most sense, so I made that first. Then as I made my way farther down, I loved how this one tree with roots exposed was leaning out almost trying to touch the sky, but the foreground isn’t as strong. Which do you prefer?

This is a series of 3 images of Hidden Spring Falls at Goldstream Provincial Park near Victoria.  The first image is of the overall scene, including this very old, large fallen tree covered in moss.  I like the angles and the foreground it provides.

Next, moving up with the falls itself being the primary subject.  Two things I liked when making this image were the plants growing on the rock wall and the moss covered logs above the falls.  The sky was just cloudy enough to avoid dappled light but not too overcast, perfect light in my opinion.

The last image is a close up of the falls.  Most times when photographing a scene like this one, I would approach it in this order, starting farther away and slowly moving up.  In this case however, I was drawn immediately to the water and the green wall and made the close up images first and finished with the one farther away.

Chaotic Tendrils - Phase XF 100mp, 45mm, f/14, 13s, ISO 50.

I find photographing in a rain forest both exhilarating and very challenging. Walking through and seeing all the moss covered limbs and ferns makes me want to make photos everywhere. However there’s so much chaos with so many distracting elements, that finding an interesting composition is a big challenge. Not sure I succeeded here, but I found the fallen trees and the stream interesting.
