    Four in colour from the coasts of Normandy & Brittany

    The coasts of Normandy & Brittany are a goldmine of photographic opportunities. The mix of natural landscapes and the work of man, together with the ever-moving Atlantic skies, makes for a truly unbeatable combination. Can't wait to be back this November for more! Here four images in colour...

    Four B&W from the Faroe Islands

    Good morning everyone! I always loved B&W and created some of my most exhibited work with it, but lately I have been shooting even more in B&W, something that suits my mood and vision much better, these days. Here are four B&W shots from the Faroe Islands: Phase One IQ4 XT- Rodenstock HR 90mm...

    Hi there! New to this forum! :) A Hi from Japan!

    Hi there! I haven't been on a forum for about 15 years I think, so it feels very interesting to be back on one! My friend told me about this forum, so I was curious to check it out and say Hi! Hope everyone is doing well and been having a good time shooting these days :) I'm Reylia, and I'm from...

    Two long exposures on the coasts of Brittany, France

    I love the surreal feeling created by the use of long exposures in the landscape, as well as the compositional power they provide in terms of the ability to create leading lines out of nowhere. Here two images from the coasts of Brittany, in France, a destination I really love and I can't wait...

    Two from Iceland, while waiting to go back!

    Finally we can travel again around Europe with not too much hassle, and I can't wait to go back to Iceland in September as my first international trip after Covid forced me to stay in Italy for pretty much all the second half of 2020! In the meantime, here are two favourite spots of mine in...

    Two sunrises from the Isle of Skye

    This year, due to the infamous pandemic, for the first time in over a decade I didn’t go to the Isle of Skye in late winter, and I really missed it; I scheduled two trips in 2022 to compensate for that, but in the meantime, I thought I’d share a couple of Skye sunrises with you. 1/5 sec, f/16...

    Two icy images from Iceland

    These days, it is very popular to show the fire side of Iceland, for those lucky enough to be able to travel there to photograph the new volcano. Being hard for me to travel there now, I thought I’d show the icy side of it with a couple of images from my archives. 236 sec, f/11, Hasselblad...

    Two different Northumberland moods

    I love Northumberland's landscapes, their mix of human intervention and natural beauty is just stunning. I put together two very different moods here: Bamburgh Castle at sunset Spittal's Pier Both images taken with Hasselblad X1D II, Hasselblad XCD 30mm and Formatt-Hitech Firecrest Ultra...

    Storm over St Monans zigzagging pier

    Not being an engineer, I am not sure how effective the bizarre shape of St Monans' pier is to break waves, but I assume it works. What I am sure of, on the other hand, is that photographically speaking the pier is a truly inspiring work of concrete! 2 seconds, Hasselblad X1D II, Hasselblad 30mm...

    Two from Loch Lomond, in Scotland

    Loch Lomond is a beautiful loch, and I love to stop there on my way from Glasgow to Glencoe & the Isle of Skye, when I have a chance. Here two sunsets on the Loch, taken two years apart. First, a 2020 image, 3/5 of a second taken with my Hasselblad X1D II, Hasselblad XCD 21mm and Formatt-Hitech...

    Reynisfjara, Iceland, near and far

    When I am working on the landscape, if the weather and the scene allows I love to experiment with different focal lengths, looking for compositions inside a composition. This is Reynisfjara, in Iceland, at sunrise on a stormy day: 4 seconds, Hasselblad X1D II, Hasselblad XCD 30mm and...

    Two lighthouses in Cornwall

    I love photographing Cornwall under all weather conditions, the Atlantic weather creates some amazing light shows - sometimes, the colours in the sky are so saturated that you actually need to tone them down in post-processing, rather than enhancing them. Trevose Head's Lighthouse, in...

    Two misty sunrises on the Tuscan hills

    I love Tuscany in every season, but especially so in the fall or spring, when mist can transform the landscape & the mood of your photos completely. Sunrise on the hills, 1/40 sec., Leica SL, Leica Vario-Elmarit-SL 90-280mm, Formatt-Hitech Firecrest filters. Tuscan Sunrise, 1/50 sec...

    Two Icelandic waterfalls

    Waterfalls are a constant presence in Iceland, they grace the landscape with their presence pretty much everywhere you look. Some are more iconic than others, and among the iconic ones Kirkjufellsfoss and Skogafoss are definitely high on the list. Here they are, photographed in winter...

    Two different moods at Reynisdrangar, Iceland

    I love going to Iceland in winter. The weather in Iceland is always such a leading character in the story and this is even truer in winter, as the images here prove (at least to me, that is). Reynisdrangar, in Iceland, is a very accessible location offering a wealth of different compositional...

    Two Dolomites October sunrises

    The light at sunrise on the Dolomites in the fall is just beautiful, soft and smooth. Here two images taken at a day difference last year in mid-October at sunrise: 1/5 sec., Hasselblad X1D II, Hasselblad XCD 45mm, Formatt-Hitech Firecrest Ultra filters. 128 sec., Hasselblad X1D II...

    Two Brittany Coast sunsets - Warning: NOT iconic locations :)

    The rocky coasts of Brittany close to Pleneuf-Val-André offer a number of photographic opportunities to those willing to explore them. Here two sunset views: Ilot du Verdelet | 6 sec., Hasselblad X1D II, Hasselblad XCD 21mm & Formatt-Hitech Firecrest Ultra filters Pleneuf-Val-André | 6.3...
