Snoqualmie Pass in 85mm

At the end of last winter after a trip to Colorado I discovered how awesome snowshoeing can be. I also realised around that same time how neglected my 85mm lens was. I tried to think of a somewhat unconvential way to get creative with it, and showshoeing gave me an idea. What if I used it to shoot subject traditionally shot wide, and see if I can make it equally (or more) visually appealing?

I took the Df and the 85mm along with me in a little throw bag, and set off for a little hike amongst the snow and trees. I figured I'd be crammed in at 85mm, but when I found a little clearing and had a view, I found something that really fit the lens quite well.

As this winter approaches, I can't wait to explore this concept a lot more, along with a lot more snowshoeing!

Smoky Bay

I'm returning to Iceland this week on my blog. I've visited the country twice, once in 2012 and 2013, and for some reason I've felt this place calling me to return again. I'll be going through some images that are new (in that I've never posted them) this week, while I look to plan the time to return to this beautiful island country.

This is the view of downtown Reykjavik, as seen from the top of Hallgrimskirkja, one of the tallest buildings in Iceland and a Lutheran church. I just love the look of this beautiful European city!

Wizard of Grimsey

I'm returning to Iceland this week on my blog. I've visited the country twice, once in 2012 and 2013, and for some reason I've felt this place calling me to return again. I'll be going through some images that are new (in that I've never posted them) this week, while I look to plan the time to return to this beautiful island country.

This image, of my good friend Rod Hoekstra who travelled with me to the country in 2013, somehow managed to convince a flock of arctic terns to do his bidding one fateful morning, north of the arctic circle on Grimsey Island.

Majestic Southern Shore

I'm returning to Iceland this week on my blog. I've visited the country twice, once in 2012 and 2013, and for some reason I've felt this place calling me to return again. I'll be going through some images that are new (in that I've never posted them) this week, while I look to plan the time to return to this beautiful island country.

This image is from one of my favourite locations in Iceland, Jokulsarlon. It's a huge glacier lagoon where chunks of ice rush in from the ocean, just as quickly as they rush back out to sea. It's a wonderful playground for photographers on the shore, as well as out on the lagoon itself. Most of the images I took here were wide, however this was one of the few were I went long and got tight in on the location. It's a lot of fun to re-visit images from the past, I don't know why I never posted this -- I think it's one of my favourites from this trip!

Vik Coastline

I'm returning to Iceland this week on my blog. I've visited the country twice, once in 2012 and 2013, and for some reason I've felt this place calling me to return again. I'll be going through some images that are new (in that I've never posted them) this week, while I look to plan the time to return to this beautiful island country.

This image is from a place called Vik on the southern coast. Rough arctic waters rush up on the shoreline, covered with rocky spires and outcroppings. It's such a fun place to explore!
