The Canadian Rockies never cease to amaze. This is the route to the upper falls of Johnston Canyon, just off the Bow Valley Parkway between Banff and Lake Louise. The turquoise colour of the canyon rapids is never tiring to watch.
Moraine Lake has always been on my list of places to visit, having first seen a photo of it in a landscape photography calendar back in my youth. It’s simply perfection, from the snow dusted mountains, glacial water, and that turquoise colour of the lake is surreal, as too are the reflections.
This cascade lies in Tourmakeady a small village that traverses the southern shores of stunning Lough Mask in County Mayo in the west of Ireland. A short walk through Tourmakeady woods and you will find these serene falls. Despite the marauding summer midges which conduct sortie after sortie on your scalp, there’s a fair chance you will have these falls all to yourself.
The middle tier of Tasmania’s Liffey Falls cascades through ancient tree ferns and rain forest. An overcast day, in such dense rain forest made for low and diffuse light, ideal for a long exposure of the falls.
The tessellated rock of Dip Falls in North Western Tasmania, is a signature of these falls and with such a flow of water in winter, a long exposure makes for this exquisite mosaic.
Sunset over the stark, jagged, red lichen covered rocks that line the Rocky Cape peninsular in north west Tasmania. To the left of the little island you can make out the wisps of steam from Port Latta’s iron ore plant, and to the right of the setting sun, the Nut in Stanley is but a blimp. It was precarious clambering over these rocks to get to this vantage point, but the striking colours, the amazing geology and this view over Pebbly Bay and Bass Strait make it a worthy scramble.
St Paul’s Cathedral is the centre piece over looking a beautifully lit Southwark Bridge and the Thames. Been meaning to get this shot for a few weeks after having walked by here before Christmas. Brought a long lens this time to grab this tight frame.
The view of Tower Bridge taken at dusk from the banks of the Thames. Yes, the banks of the Thames! I was fortunate that access to the bank was made possible by the gaffer allowing me to walk through the short archway just off Shad Thames, down worn stone steps to the stony bank, and actually doubly fortunate that it was low-tide. A stones throw away and Tower Bridge is teeming with traffic and onlookers, and behind me the nightlife of Butler’s wharf is all a buzz - yet here on this spot it was oddly quiet and I had this view all to myself.
Loved these iridescent reflections on the Thames on a still winters night. Taken from the shore of the river underneath the Millennium Bridge. Yes it was low tide! St Paul's to the left, then on the right the skyline of the Heron Tower, Leadenhall Building and then the Walkie Talkie. (20 Fenchurch St)
A beautiful summer's evening in London. This vantage point of this London icon is from Southwark St, round the corner from Borough Market. I had intended on doing a long exposure and this was my warm up frame. I couldn't better the light trails from other London buses that passed in other photos. Hat tip to the bus driver for the serendipitous timing.
This was the sea of red, 888,246 ceramic poppies surrounding the Tower of London in 2014. An incredible centennial tribute to the British fallen of WWI, and one I feel privileged to have seen.
