#319. I want to ride my icicle (more Zeiss 35/1.4 ZM)

Tomorrow morning, my loaner Zeiss 35/1.4 ZM has to go back to its rightful owners. This is a little heartbraking as it has been a glorious companion for my little Sony. Small, discrete, beautiful. And oh so utterly brilliant at making pictures. So, yesterday, seizing one of the last opportunities

#241. Ilulissat – evening shoot amongst the icebergs (1)

The 35 billion tonnes of ice released annually by the Ilulisat Glacier eventually all flow out into the North Atlantic. The helicopter trip gave us a fantastic view of the area, but for anything more than strapped-in grab shots of icebergs, the only option is a boat. We tried this

#240. Ilulissat Icefjord

I watched the depth sounder as our boat left harbour; 10m, 12m, 18m, 250m. That made the size of the icebergs stranded in Disco Bay even bigger than I’d imagined. And this image? You’d be forgiven for thinking I might have walked closer for an even more impressive shot. No.

#238. Going aerial

An aerial photographic opportunity has become a part of the Better Moments tour offering. We all managed to squeeze into the Bell Jet Ranger at Ilulissat airport and headed for the icefjord, cameras securely strapped to various parts of our anatomy – the doors has been opened and belts were

The boat nuzzled up to the ‘berg, a dozen photographers clustered as near as the rail would permit – a unique composition amongst a region packed with photo opportunities. Alone, the ice pool is visually interesting, a puzzle as to how it came to be – on top of the

#234. Evening wake

There are several ways to see Greenland’s icebergs. Walking any distance away from the country’s few settlements soon takes on marathon proportions, as the snow remains knee deep all year ’round. Another is a boat trip that can get you into the Ilulissat icefjord, close to the action and with

#233. Icebergs in black and white

Despite being a fan of black and white conversion, it took me by surprise to see one of my fellow workshop photographer’s images stripped of its colour data. So, I gave it a try myself. Curiously, not every image is a candidate; in this situation, the image needs a big

#232. Ilulissat icefjord morning

Catching up. Awake at 04:30; having arrived on an intercontinental (but still local) flight in Danish Greenland and a second hop on a prop jet to Ilulissat, my body clock was all over the show. The time was irrelevant, it was light and looking out from behind the blinds, this

#86. Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds

Ahhh, what a refreshing post. No reviews. No f/2.8 to f/8 comparisons. No interchanging of adapters to pitch lenses back to back. I know, I know. This post will get 200 views when the others top 20k, but who cares, I’m in it for the fun 😉 Refreshing as well
