When shooting sunsets, never walk away even after the sun actually disappears below the horizon, as you may be blessed with a dramatic sky like that evening in Sydney. It's not showing in this picture, but it is not easy to shoot in a rocky environment when wearing a suit and dress shoes. Still, totally ...
Taking a good picture of the Sydney Opera House isn't easy as easy as it sounds as there isn't much to compose around (or so it seems, based on my limited research of the topic before I went on this trip!) Fortunately, I was lucky with the weather and got a nice sunrise on the ...
Just before going to the office, I dropped by Milsons Point on the other side of Harbour Bridge to take this cool view of Sydney before the sunrise and I can tell you something: Australian mornings in Autumn are chilly!
On the other side of the Yamuna river, behind the iconic Taj Mahal with its beautiful white marble and semi-precious stones, one can find scenes which are more representative of the actual life in India, where the average income is one of the lowest among all emerging countries and littering is still a massive problem.
It was cloudy that morning but hey, you've got to do with what you have! I couldn't catch a nice sunrise so instead I used a 10-stop ND filter to catch some drama with the clouds. I just wish there was a little more wind on that day too!
Wonderful little shop to repair bicycles and rickshaws in Delhi. Don't the terms "bicycle repairman" remind you of the Monty Python's Flying Circus (or maybe I'm too old)?
I love the old districts of Delhi, especially Chandni Chowk, where shops look like they haven't changed for the past 50 years or more (and it's most likely the case)! Look at the chairs in this shop, I'm wondering how heavy they are!
Scenes of Holi celebration in the Banke Bihari temple in Vrindavan, near Mathura. The Holi festival, also known as the Festival of Colours (and it's easy to understand why), is one of the most celebrated festivals in India. It marks the end of the Winter and the start of Spring but also stands for the ...
I'm just back from my trip to India, originally a business trip but I took the opportunity to make my first visit really worthwhile and took a few days off to go around the northern part (Delhi, Agra, Jaipur). I was very pleasantly surprised by how warm people are (I even made a few friends ...
The Dove Lake in the Cradle Mountain in the morning.
As a follow up of the previous post, this is what Launceston looked like on the other side on that day. This picture was taken while shooting at the sun through the Cataract Gorge.
