Mono Lake California

While I have seen hundreds of images from Mono Lake and I took hundreds as well with the few hours I had there as well most I find have a similar tone unless shot in winter. I remember taking this well past sunset when a majority of the crowds had left for the day. With just a few photographers scattered around the shoreline we pretty much had the place to ourselves bar the howling coyotes in the distance.

I had taken several images before this series of images and was still looking for the right angle and time for the perfect shot. Mono Lake itself is a huge area and lies below sea level so the water is very salty and only really home to brine shrimp, flies and migratory birds that come to feed on the flies and shrimp ( yuk )

I am looking to having this printed at around 60-65 inches and mounted for my own home, maybe in my study or lounge …

The image can be printed up to around 70 inches in length and is available through the website page here : Mono Lake ….

Queensland Beautiful One Day Perfect The Next

Not much wrong with that saying. While I have visited Queensland many many times over the past 20 or so years it only has been in recent years I have taken my time and look at the photography before the vacation aspect of a Queensland break.

This was taken one evening on the way back from visiting a few waterfalls during the day and while the days shooting was not very good due to poor light, the evening was more of a success … A sunset overlooking the Australian Bush looking over towards the Pacific Ocean …

Lake Tahoe

Scouring over some old files to find something that could work with a tone that caught my attention earlier today. I am not sure how to describe it other than to say for me it looks like a silvery chocolate … Finding that right combination took a little time but after processing the image in color first then going to the black and white stage. Only after I was happy with the final black and white image did I start looking at colors that could match the tone I was looking for … Silvery Chocolate … Yeah I know not very technical, but thats what I get for the tone …

Enjoy …
