In Life Is Short, News & Stuff, Postcards From..., Travel by David23 Comments

I never feel so much a part of something bigger than myself than when I am here, in this wide open red soil, under this vast African sky. Completely out of my context, but totally in my element. I’ve nothing here but a few personal belongings in my backpack, my cameras, and enough Kiswahili to be politely useless. What I …

Long Exposure Light Leaks

In GEAR, The Craft, Travel, Tutorials &Technique by David46 Comments

I shot the image above in Patagonia this year, my first real work with the new Nikon D800, which always makes me nervous. So when I saw the weird banding you can see in the frame on the left, I got a little freaked out. In 25 years of photography, I’d seen some weird things, but never this. I was …

I’ve made lifelong friends here and solidified others in beautiful ways. And now we’re scheming to come back, because this is a place you fall in love …

Another day in Antarctic waters. Yesterday it was Pleneau Island and Peterman Island. This morning we woke to more sunshine and dramatic mountains rising, seemingly, straight out of ice-strewn water, black, clear and deep. Weather’s been a treat – warm and sunny – and a change from the mood and drama of last year. Secretly I’m hoping for a return …
