“A Million Dreams” This is a scene that I imagined shooting even before boarding the plane to Alaska. But the likelihood of a summer aurora was pretty unlikely. Nevertheless I made blue hour exposures of this composition till about 10pm. Several hours later, the aurora was active over our campsite and I made an exposure for the sky which was easily blended into the foreground images. #alaska #auroraborealis #juneau #igs_america #nightphotography #beyondthelands_ #bestmountainartists #agameoftones #ourplanetdaily #beautifuldestinations #travellingthroughtheworld #longexpoelite #longexpo_addiction #longexposure_shots #ig_shotz_le #earthfocus #earthofficial #earth_shotz #watchthisinstagood #jaw_dropping_shots #worldshotz #theworldshotz #bbctravel #awesome_photographers #traveljuneau #nightscaper

“Winter Worship” Here’s something for International Mountain Day. The processing for this was incredibly simple, a few RAW adjustments then purely dodging and burning. I used to employ Nik Efex for bnw but doing it manually gives you so much control. One of my general tips is that it’s way better to know how to use a few tools well than be overwhelmed by too many techniques. #iceland #kirkjufell #moodygrams #ourplanetdaily #bestmountainartists #bnwmood #beyondthelands_ #guidetoiceland #ig_iceland #mystopover #wheniniceland #icelandunlimited #exploreiceland #dscvr_earth #dscvr_mood #nordiciceland #goneawoliceland #visualsoficeland

“Taming the Storm” I shot this over 10 years ago, one of my first big long exposures at almost 5 minutes. I learned a valuable lesson that day too, there can be a ton of colour in the sky left even though the eye can barely discern anything in the dark. I’ve reworked this from scratch but really not much processing needed to be done. #tasmania #tasmanpeninsula #australia #exploretasmania #seeaustralia #longexpo_addiction #longexposure_shots #longexpoelite #australia_shotz #ig_shotz_le #fossilbay #earth_shotz #earthfocus #earthofficial #moodygrams #agameoftones #madeofocean #ourplanetdaily #sunset_vision #nightphotography

“Half Light” More Alaskan mountains from an aerial perspective. Although there are some apparent advantages to processing images a certain way to keep the portfolio cohesive, I prefer to not be locked down into any particular style. This is a very in vogue technique at the moment which I call half colour. I desaturate the image and then recolourise mainly according to tonal value. #alaska #agameoftones #bestmountainartists #juneau #ourplanetdaily #beyondthelands_ #bbctravel #igs_america #earth_shotz #earthfocus #earthofficial #awesome_earthpix #awesome_photographers #sunset_vision #moodygrams

“Atmosphere” On the Alaska expedition with @marcadamus we had the usual round table discussion about what is most important element of a landscape photograph. I’m very much in the composition camp. But I was surprised to hear something new as an element - atmosphere. Anyway check out the tree in this photo for scale! #jaw_dropping_shots #moodygrams #worldshotz #igs_america #agameoftones #alaska #dscvr_earth #dscvr_mood #dscvr_mist #bestmountainartists #alaska #moodygrams #moodnation #beyondthelands_ #earthfocus #earthofficial #earth_shotz #bbctravel #awesome_earthpix #awesome_photographers #ourplanetdaily

“Double Star” Wishing my American friends a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving weekend! Pro tip 2. Once you’ve worked out your foreground and background, tying the two together is the most difficult part of putting together a good composition. Here I’ve used the sun star reflection and lake to draw the eye into the scene, creating depth. #alaska #igs_america #jaw_dropping_shots #sunset_vision #agameoftones #travellingthroughtheworld #beautifuldestinations #worldshotz #theworldshotz #bestmountainartists #bbctravel #earthfocus #earth_shotz #earthofficial #beyondthelands_

“Spooks” We had some awesome moody days on the Alaska expedition too. Here’s the first one I’ve gotten around to processing. #alaska #igs_america #moodnation #moodygrams #agameoftones #mist_vision #dscvr_mood #dscvr_earth #dscvr_mist #bestmountainartists #beyondthelands_ #earthfocus #earth_shotz #earthofficial #petersburg

“Storm Surf” I’m completely surfed out after catching some winter-like swells this week on the Surf Coast of Victoria. After a marathon 45 wave session and noticing the beautiful light developing I got out of the water and sent the #djimavicair up. #surfcoast #greatoceanroad #victoria #thesurfiety #australia #surfphotographer #surf #surfphotography #visitmelbourne #visitvictoria #seegor #torquay #australia_shotz #seeaustralia #ig_australia #australiagram #takemetoaustralia #exploringaustralia #sunset_vision #dji #fromwhereidrone #droneheroes #droneoftheday #droneofficial #discoverdrone #madeofocean #earthfocus #earth_shotz #ourplanetdaily
