I am a new member and i would like to share one of my source of happiness -- Landscape Photography.
Photos from a recent trip to an uninhabited island west of The Philippines -- Capones Island
(1) Cloudless, despite of that this sunrise shot worked because of an amazing pre-dawn light.
(2) Wave Action, i'ts always interesting to shoot waves. Proper speed and timing is needed to make it work.
(3) Image like this doesn't need description, it's beyond words.
(4) Landscape photography is not for the lazy. Indeed, it is not. Images like this and those above can only be had if you can get out of bed faster than the sun coming out of the horizon.
I wish i was able to contribute to this forum by sharing those 4 fave photos of mine from this trip. I will try to contribute as often as i can. That means getting off my bed in the dark hours of the morning frequently. Enjoy!
This little island does offer so much for a landscape photographer. There's a sunrise and sunset spots, infrared in the middle of the day, and if you are still up to it, star trails or milky way shoot at night won't disappoint. I guess, this will be the destination of the year as our 2-day weekend trip just barely scratches what this island offers.
So, the first weekend of April had been fantastic! The troops went out on a 4 day camping and photography trip in a remote cove west of The Philippine islands. We had been blessed with great light for most of the trip. I'll share some of my takes that i like best.
The first sunset on the cove. Awesome Blues and Golds!
As soon as the light faded out of the horizon, we turn our attention to the burning bushes the farmers started so they can farm the land. It was such an experience seeing such a huge land area on fire for the first time. The crackling sound created by fire is quite scary.
Feeling we have not shot the place well enough the other day, we went back to same spot. Again, the light was amazing!
Then a bit of zoomed up frame from the same angle to emphasize the boat
