Shot for the Day (17 January 2018)


Taken a few years ago on my Noblex, a local Hong Kong boatman was collecting floating debris in Victoria Harbour. The building half finished in the back lefthand corner of the shot, is the International Commerce Centre. It has 108floors and is 484 m (1,588 ft) tall, the tallest building in Hong Kong. Indeed, when it was completed in 2011, it was the 4th tallest building in the world (now the 11th).

Amazing how quickly the Hong Kong skyline has changed in a relatively short period of time.

Shot for the Day (4 October 2017)


I drove around Harris on my first evening, looking for the right vantage point for an end of day shot. I spoke to a local farmer, who recommended an isolate beach situated on the far side of his land. Once there, I had the whole place to myself and perhaps one of the finest sunsets I have been fortunate enough to witness.  The colours were so vibrant, the water looked like it was gold, lapping against my feet.

The image truly does not do justice to the scene. It was one of the most incredible sunsets I have ever seen in Harris. It lasted for ages. Usually, the sun drops within an hour (hence a golden hour) but this last considerably longer, due to the longitude. This image is made up of 5 images stitched together, so the master RAW file is over 200MB, so I could fill an entire wall with this panoramic.

Earlier this year, I had the good fortune to spend a week in the Outer Hebrides, on the Isle of Harris and Lewis. This was taken on day one, very soon after I arrived at Huisinis. The clouds were just beginning to shift as the wind picked up. I was standing completely alone in this stunning landscape, with only flies and cattle to share the moment with.

Taken a short while after sunset, during the blue hour (as opposed to the golden hour of sunset), this is a view of Singapore.  The tall buildings are part of the CBD (Central Business District), where I used to work.  In the foreground, the illuminated white is the ArtScience Museum.

My lasting memory of taking this image is that I recall it being an especially warm evening, even for Singapore.

I took this shot whilst standing on a manmade, floating island, on Lake Titicaca, close to Puno in Bolivia.  The locals, descended from the Spanish and the Incas, built the Uros Floating Islands from reeds, as well as the shelter you can see in this image.  In the background, you can see one of the locals rowing her boat with her baby strapped to her back.

If you look closely enough, you can see the traditional engine…

After waking up early for a dawn shoot, I was a little dejected by the lackluster weather.  However, using a Lee Filter Big Stopper to slow the scene down and generate movement in the clouds, whilst making the sea turn more glassy.

The delicate orange glow below the morning clouds, behind the pillar of land at Ladram Bay in Devon made for a rather haunting scene.

The dawn of a new day in southern Patagonia.  This shot pf the Moreno Glacier was taken a few years back when I was working and travelling around South America.  I purchased a lovely Fuji GW690 that took no time at all to get the hang of, along with a huge bag of medium format, 120 roll film all around the continent.

This shot was taken a short while before the sun progressed over the mountainous horizon behind me, illuminating the whole Moreno Glacier in a glorious morning, amber light.  Definitely should be a place one’s bucket list to visit and watch sunrise.
