Boats on Sanur Beach

Sanur is considered the original upmarket tourist destination on the Indonesian island of Bali, and remains a photographically spectacular place today. The long beach looks over towards Nusa Penida island (which can be seen in the background of this image). I only had a couple of days in Bali on this trip as I was…

Waking Up in Positano

After a successful shoot in the blue hour from the eastern overlook of Positano, I decided to go back to the same location for sunrise photos the next morning. The early backlighting from the sun behind cast a really nice light over the township, lighting the surrounding mountains up with a beautiful golden hue, and…

Atrani by Night

One of the many gorgeous townships on Italy's Amalfi Coast is Atrani, a village literally 10 minutes by foot from Amalfi. Atrani is a pretty town cutting into another gap in the coastal mountain range, quickly rising up from sea level to the heights above. Our day trip to Amalfi and Atrani (from our base…

Positano Sunrise

Apart from the lack of crowds, one of the distinctive things about low season in Positano is that the days are quite short. As the late, great photographer, Galen Rowell, once said: "You only get one sunrise and one sunset a day, and you only get so many days on the planet. A good photographer…

Sunset Silhouette

I like a good silhouette, but find this type of photography to be challenging. I think that's because there needs to be a healthy balance between light and shadow (balanced light), strong features, colour and negative space. After making some sunset photos on the beach during our first evening in the beautiful Amalfi Coast town…

East from Positano

The classic view of Positano is from the outlook at the eastern end of the township, near the Sponda bus-stop. This view is very oft the first stop for photographers visiting Positano1. This is exactly why its a good idea to sometimes shoot the opposite view, so after watching Elia Locardi's Photographing the World part…

Six Passengers

Famous for its spectacular coastline, seascapes and mountain vistas, life in Positano is literally built around the sea. The township is a year round magnet for tourists, and the crystal blue seas are a way that many get to and from the area, and are a major part of their enjoyment of it. Swimming, snorkelling,…

Looking Up from Positano

Like the other towns on Italy's Amalfi Coast, Positano stretches from its beautiful coastline up into the surrounding mountains. Standing on the beach, the signature dome of the church of Santa Maria Assunta is framed between an enclave in the ridge-line of the mountains. Buildings stretch much of the way up. This image was made…

Positano Blue

Positano on Italy's Amalfi Coast is a spectacularly stunning township, rising up from the sea into the heights of the surrounding mountains. We visited in late Autumn, the low season for tourism, and we loved the fact that we could truly explore the coast, and the whole township without having to battle any crowds whatsoever.…

Chapel by the Sea

The fishing village of Georgiopoulos in Crete was an interesting short photo adventure sortie from Souda Bay, one of our stops on Northern Trident 2015. About an hour by taxi from Souda Bay, we went to Geogiopoulos for a single reason - to get sunset and blue hour photos of this little chapel that is…

Phare du Petit Minou

One of the landmarks clearly seen on entering the magnificent port of Brest in France is the lighthouse known as the Phare du Petit Minou. For mariners of today and days past, lighthouses guide the way to safety around hidden dangers. A lighthouse seen from an appropriate distance can provide comfort, but a lighthouse seen…

Narrabeen Pool

Narrabeen Dawn by Des Paroz on 500px Sydney has a lot of wonderful ocean pools, most of which are photogenic, particularly at sunrise and sunset. The pool at Narrabeen on the Northern Beaches is perhaps one of the most interesting photographically, and is an extremely worthwhile destination for pre-sunrise photography. The beautiful light in the…
