121/365 Orchid III


Another image from my session with my kitchen orchid.  I like this zoomed out version as much as the close up ones from my previous posts.

118/365 Orchid


I bought some new portable studio lights last week and have just been able to start playing with them. First test subject was the ‘kitchen’ orchid. Messing around with high key images today, I really like the overall effect of this. It would look great as a canvas! Any takers?

047/365 Poppy field


Todays image, number 047 is from the La Brenne area of France. It’s really difficult to convey the amount of poppies that were in this field. It was amazing to see and I spent around an hour shooting it from different angles trying to make the most of this beautiful landscape, before moving onto the next location.

041/365 Kota Kinabalu Sunset


Image 041 is a ‘regular’ sunset from Kota Kinabalu.  Due to Mt Kinabalu dominating the weather systems in Borneo, there is always a lot of cloud about during sun set.  This makes for great images every night of the week. Heres another one of my favourites.

040/365 Kota Kinabalu abstract sunset


One for yesterday… 😉

Looking through my images to see what to post next,  I found this one which I completely forgot about taking.  Utilising a slow shutter speed and panning movement, I captured a variety of images using different shutter speeds.  I’ve done this in the past with wide angle lenses such as the 17-40mm or 24-70mm but this one was taken with my 500mm!  It shows you can do landscape photogrpahy with a supertelephoto! This is one of my favourites and has a very soothing quality about it.  Maybe its the smoothness of the scene or just the pastel like colours. I hope you like it as much as I do.
