Porto Clementino, Tuscany, Italy
Last week I drove down to the Sexten Dolomites to have a look at the Drei Zinnen. I stayed up at the Drei Zinnen hut for three nights and wandered around looking for photographs that might be included in my upcoming exhibition. I took this evening panorama looking across towards the north face of the Drei Zinnen as a weather front broke up and moved away.
The picture gallery is now online and can be seen if you follow this link! I hope you enjoy it!
Last Friday I went down to the Rieserferner Mountains in South Tirol, Italy. It´s a wonderful area with some good peaks and beautiful valleys. Early on Saturday morning, the sun was just peeping over a mountain ridge and back lighting this tree.
I´ve just received the pdf proof for the forthcoming book, “Travel, Modernism and Modernity” written by Dr. Robert Burden. I´m very pleased about this because not only did I provided the main cover photograph (a Tuscany Landscape) but also did the picture search for the book´s subjects (Joseph Conrad, E.M. Forster, D.H, Lawrence, Edith Wharton and Henry James) and the photo montage. The book, published by Ashgate Publishing Limited, in the USA, will be appearing soon.
As the light fades, the colour goes and the shapes remain.
I´ve just got back from a few days in the Fanes-Sennes-Prags National Park in the Dolomites. The weather was not bad, with blue skies but a freezingly cold and blustery wind. Unfortunately there´s not much snow on the souther side of the Alps which was bad for the ski-mountaineers, but I got along better with my snow-shoes. I took this shot near the Fanes hut the night before last. It was a cold, starry night but the wind made it rather unpleasant to stand around for long – which is the what one has to do with night time photography. The wind game in great gusts which I fortunately could hear coming a way away which meant I could try and get the exposures in before it hit – sometimes without success, one very strong gust blew my camera and tripod over, I just caught it before it hit the snow!
Another photograph taken in Venice. I can understand why the place is so loved by both photographers and painters – there is a shot to be had on nearly every corner.
