Star Trails over Turtle Lake

Last weekend we were invite to a friends cottage. Aside from enjoying the company of wonderful friends and relaxing in beautiful surroundings I was most excited to try my hand at shooting star trails and the Perseid Meteor Showers that occurred over the weekend.

Here’s one of first attempts at star trails. This was a 15 minute exposure.

Blue Hour at the Pier

This image was taken on the same evening as the previous post with a more expansive view of the pier and the old town in Malaga.

Malaga Sunset

I was fortunate to be staying at a hotel that had a rooftop swimming pool. Never did use the pool but it was a perfect spot to capture the sunset over the old town of Malaga.

Beach Day in Malaga

Our next stop on our Spain adventure was the beach town of Malaga, birthplace of Pablo Picasso and Antonio Banderas. Naturally the first stop was the beach.

Alhambra Reflections

On our way to Malaga from Barcelona we stopped in Granada to tour The Alhambra. Make sure that if you’re planning a trip you purchase your tickets online well in advance. We actually saw people turned away because there were no more tickets that day.

The reflecting pools that have been built directly in front of the palaces visually increases their size by the mirror like effect. It creates a beautiful scene to behold.

We’re On A Roll!

One of my most favourite cities in the world is New York and I’ve been fortunate enough to be able to visit often. I was there at the beginning of July for a long weekend and the reason for this latest trip was more then just a weekend getaway but it was also to do a bit more shooting underground in the subway. There was a very special reason for this which I will reveal over the next few weeks so stay tuned.

I did manage to stay above ground as well and spent a day in Brooklyn shooting on a very hot, humid and rainy day.
