2nd Beach at Sunset | La Push

Sunset at 2nd Beach, La Push

This breathtakingly beautiful place on the Pacific northwest coast in Washington State, is just a 15 minute or so walk through forest from the roadside car park. It’s definitely worth the effort and was virtually deserted when we visited late one September afternoon. As I lined up this shot, some of the seagulls started to take off which really finished it off for me. This is a single raw file edited in Lightroom and Photoshop CC with a bit of Topaz Clarity and OnOne Perfect Effects.

Stokksnes Lighthouse | Iceland

Stokksnes lighthouse in Iceland long exposure photograph

Stokksnes Lighthouse in Iceland

Stokksnes is a headland just to the east of Hofn and is reached via an unmade up road from route 1 next to the western end of the Almannaskard Tunnel. The lighthouse is next to a radar station, which was once a NATO base but is now used for commercial air traffic control. Nearby is a beach with black sand dunes and we spent a good couple of hours in the area taking photos. This photo is a four minute long exposure using 10 and 6 stop Formatt Hitech IRND filters stacked together.

The City of London

The City of London

The landscape of the City of London financial district has changed a lot in recent years with new iconic towers appearing to alter the skyline of the square mile. This is a four minute long exposure photograph taken from the south bank in front of City Hall. The dominant landmark here is 20 Fenchurch Street which was designed by the architect Rafael Viñoly. It is known informally as the Walkie-Talkie building because of its distinctive shape. Moving to the right, you can also see Tower 42, 122 Leadenhall Street (The Cheesegrater) and 30 St Mary Axe (The Gherkin), with The Heron Tower peeping out from behind it.

This was taken on a recent photo walk with my friend and amazing photographer Julia Anna Gospodarou, who was visiting London at the time. If you like architectural photography and particularly long exposures, then you probably know her work already, but you should certainly check it out if you don’t.

Ice Age | Jokulsarlon

Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon

Jokulsarlon is a large glacier lagoon in the south east of Iceland, on the edge of the Vatnajokull National Park. The lake formed when the glacier started to recede from the coast and has grown four times larger in the past forty years. It is more than 248 metres deep and regularly releases small icebergs into the Atlantic Ocean.

This is a long exposure of just over four minutes which has smoothed out the clouds and the gentle ripples on the water. I decided not to completely correct the colour cast from the ND filters as I like the surreal feel that it gives the image.

Leadenhall Market

Leadenhall Market | City of London

Leadenhall Market is a covered shopping area in the City of London and is one of the oldest markets in London, having been there since the 14th century. The attractive architecture and picturesque cobbled streets make it a popular location for tourists and city workers. It has also been used as a film location a few times, most famously for the first Harry Potter movie. I’d wanted to get a shot like this of it for a long time, but it is usually crowded when I am there or I just haven’t had my tripod with me. I got the chance a few months ago when I came here with a few friends on a Saturday evening after an Instagram meetup and this is the result.
