    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...

    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 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...

    Stair Hole at Sunrise, in Dorset

    Climbing up to the top of Stair Hole before sunrise, in the crisp air of the morning, is electrifying. Nature offering you a show like this makes the short but steep climb definitely worthwhile. 1.6 seconds with my Hasselblad X1D, Hasselblad XCD 21mm and Formatt-Hitech Firecrest Ultra filters.⁠...

    Sunrise bikini beach shoot - settings?

    Hello all, I'm doing a bikini beach shoot early during sunrise and I wanted to get some advice on camera / flash settings. I'm using a Godox octabox 37.5 with a Yongnuo YN560 Speedlite to light the model and have the option of using a grid with the octabox and a polarizer filter. Using a Canon...

    St. Michael's Mount at sunrise

    Saint Michael's Mount, in Cornwall (UK), is a beautiful and extremely photogenic island, and one that contrarily to its more famous French homonym gets completely isolated at high tide. While normally photographed with its iconic causeway from close, I also love to portray it from the distance...

    Impromptu Dolomites sunrise

    One morning, on the Dolomites, driving back to the hotel after our sunrise session we saw some incredible light hitting a distant peak. We just had the time to stop, take the camera out and take a couple of shots, and the light was gone. I almost never shoot handheld, but this is one of the very...

    Lake Dobbiaco, Dolomites, before sunrise

    Besides the famous peaks, the Dolomites feature many small lakes, surrounded by the mountains and all very atmospheric and inspiring - either thanks to the ubiquitous fog, or because of the reflections they create - or both, like here. This is Lake Dobbiaco before sunrise, 102 seconds of...

    Some recent sunrise photos

    Hey ya'll. Found a couple of days over the last several weeks to get out and shoot some sunrises, and had some great luck with conditions cooperating. Wanted to share a few images that I'm reasonably happy with. C&C always welcome. All images shot on the fuji X-T3 with the 10-24. Images 1 and...

    Sunrise at Passo Giau, Dolomites

    I just finished to process my 2019 pictures from my beloved Dolomites, and I decided to start sharing images with one of my favourite locations there. This is Passo Giau, a truly inspiring place offering many different compositions, photographed here at sunrise. 2.5 seconds exposure with my...

    Castro de Las Gaviotas at sunrise

    Looking like a pair of giant legs, Castro de Las Gaviotas is a truly imposing and impressive sea arch. 25 seconds of exposure at sunrise with my Hasselblad X1D, Hasselblad XCD 30mm and Formatt-Hitech Firecrest Ultra filters. I can't wait for us all to be able to travel again freely, and to go...

    Seljalandsfoss at sunrise

    Seljalandsfoss is just an amazing place to photograph, especially at sunrise when nobody is there and you have the place all for yourself. It's not easy to keep your filters clean, but the results are worth the pain. 2 seconds of exposure with my Hasselblad X1D, Hasselblad XCD 21mm and...

    Mesa Arch, a classic that never gets old...

    It appears that is now "fashionable" to tag any landscape photograph on Instagram as "Mesa Arch", with the intent of keeping the real location undisclosed - seeing that yesterday, while exploring Northumberland for a future Workshop, made me think about the "real" Mesa Arch, and I went to look...

    Men Ruz Lighthouse at Sunrise, Brittany, France

    All the northern coast of France is dotted with lighthouses. One of the most spectacular, for me, is the Phare de Mean Ruz (or Men Ruz). Its position, its setting and its construction are all extremely inspiring and photogenic, especially with rough seas and an explosive sky such as here. 1.4...

    Manarola at sunrise

    Manarola, in the Cinque Terre, is a truly spectacular village - especially at sunrise, when the town is asleep and its street are completely empty of people. Can't wait to be back in March! :) 6 seconds of peace with my Hasselblad X1D, Hasselblad 21mm and my Formatt Hitech Firecrest Ultra...
