“The way the day begins decides the shade of everything...”. Stop motion of a New York sunrise with both the Chrysler Tower and the Empire State Building from my hotel window.
Güneşli gün görmelere hasret kaldık. Her mevsim ayrı güzel, ayrı faydalı elbette. Ama şuradan bahara dönsek ne güzel olur. Zor zamanlar geçiriyorsanız, hasretle ve sabırsızlıkla güzel günleri bekliyorsanız içinizde umut hep var olsun. Ümitvar olun. Hayatın güzü de var kışı da... Bu günlerden sonra insanın içini yaşama sevinci dolduran, güne ayrı güzel başlatan bahar var, yaz var. Unutmayın, yaşanacak günlerimizin en güzelleri henüz yaşamadıklarımızdır.

Sunsets and bikes. Oh Amsterdam 🤩
Waterfalls of Java. 🇮🇩 I recently spent a few days exploring sooooooo many waterfalls with Niklas. Helping him with a shoot which I’ll be sharing soon. I’m back in Scotland now after an exciting project in Switzerland which I’ll be sharing in late April. In other news, I also bought an apartment which is exciting. Adult life is kicking in. 👴🏼
Rays in the mist at Alpe di Siusi 💛
Let Osprey for another beautiful day 🙏🏽
🇫🇷🌲 Congratulations to our long time customer Laurent Bachelin for taking delivery of his 5th AFM harvesting head!
The Bachelin family has a long history in logging. The great-grandfather of Laurent started to work in the logging industry in 1905.
Needless to say logging is a way of life in the Bachelin Family! #afmfamily #afmforest #forestry #afm75 @timberpro1 @forestpioneer
Some people play not to lose and some play to win.
Namie (once ~ 20k people) is one of the towns that was evacuated as a result of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster.
Now, partly, has been declared safe to live. Although during the day you see cars passing , and some people working, it’s not clear if somebody lives there. Only after sunset some houses get alive as people get back home.

A few weeks ago, as I was driving out to California, I thought “wouldn’t it be cool to shoot some celestial object above MT Whitney?” I knew the iconic view of it was facing west, and I couldn’t remember if I had ever seen anyone shoot the sky above it with a notable object in the frame. I knew Orion set in the west and was curious about the alignment. I did my homework, I scouted via photo pills and google maps. I even dove into plan it pro! Everything was planned out and set!
But of course then there’s execution and weather, the two things that occasionally haunt us. Try number one: I arrived, set up, tracker was dead and I didn’t have extra batteries. Try number two: the clouds did not want to reveal the mountains so it was just a hazy sky above clouds. That morning I woke up to some awesome morning light and a realization that I didn’t like the composition and something was off. I took that morning to re scout the area and found something I liked a lot better.
Try number three: clouds again. This time they were fast moving in the sky and on the mountain. Mt Whitney just did not want to show it’s face! This was going to be my last night shooting and I was determined to get something. That night the fast moving weather made me work. I shot 3 unsuccessful pano sequences where fast moving clouds jumped into the shots and made them unusable. I ended up having to adjust and make changes to how I normally shoot to compensate for fast moving weather. With some patience I was able to catch a full sequence of sky with minimal cloud and moisture haze just as the nebula was about to set behind the mountains. And luckily right after I finished the sky it held out long enough for me to do the fg also. Glad I was patient enough to wait and try over and over again, as well as adjust when things didn’t totally go as planned. I’m happy with the payout!
In this shot you see Sirius on your left, Orion Nebula above the ridge, Betelgeuse above Mt Whitney, and Hyades on the ridge on the far right. Kind of a cool alignment🤷🏻♂️ This is a pano that was tracked and shot as sky and foreground separately and then blended.
