Shot at Frankfurt International Airport. An airport that truly reminds of this great quote from Douglas Adams:
“It can hardly be a coincidence that no language on Earth has ever produced the expression ‘As pretty as an airport.’ Airports are ugly. Some are very ugly. Some attain a degree of ugliness that can only be the result of a special effort. This ugliness arises because airports are full of people who are tired, cross, and have just discovered that their luggage has landed in Murmansk (Murmansk airport is the only exception of this otherwise infallible rule), and architects have on the whole tried to reflect this in their designs.”
Mount Damavand (5,610 meters tall) in the Alborz mountain range, north of Tehran, Iran.
This is a composition of two shots, one from Mount Damavand and one from a village nearby.
Dawn at the Ekbatan Complex in Tehran, Iran. The mountain creating the gigantic light shaft is mount Damavand, which is 5610 meters tall.
Multiple exposure composite, shot at SFU’s Burnaby campus.
The Seabus station at Lonsdale Quay, in North Vancouver, Canada.
Mount Baker, fitting perfectly under Lions Gate Bridge in Vancouver, BC. The mountain is 120 kms away in Washington, USA, and is 3286 meters tall.
Shot near Jasper, Canada, in May 2014. Those of you interested in the post-processing performed on this image can check out the short video below. Feedback is welcome! And if it’s positive, I’ll continue doing this for future photos. I suggest watching in 1080p and fullscreen.
Weather inversion in Greater Vancouver, British Columbia. This is when sea level land is completely immersed in fog, but tall buildings and higher land enjoy the sun. Shot at SFU’s Burnaby campus.
Moose Lake in British Columbia, Canada. This is a heavily processed shot. From my point of view, the goal in landscape photography is not necessarily to imitate the natural look of the scene, or what the eyes see. I sometimes try to augment the scene into a visually stunning yet still somehow believable image. I admit the balance is pretty difficult to find, and that this image may look thoroughly fake to you!
Here are the post-processing steps taken on this photo, in time-lapse form:
The W.A.C Bennet Library in SFU’s Burnaby campus. For those of you interested in the technical aspects, this is a blend of 6 exposures; five of them for the foreground and to diminish the overexposure from the lights in the walkway, and one for the stars.
A little mind bender this time. Totally out of my comfort zone. A futile attempt at creating art!
An experimental creation for me. The sky was artificially created out of another photo of mine (real long exposure never turns out like this). I thought the combination turned out interesting.
A frozen Maligne Lake in Alberta, Canada. Shot in May 2014. The view itself was pretty colourless apart from the trees, so I slightly boosted the blues to get these colder tones.
Panorama shot from Lonsdale Quay in North Vancouver.
A new post processing take on one of my older panoramas of downtown Vancouver.
Downtown Vancouver, as seen from up north in West Vancouver.
Shot at the western hills of Vienna, in the Penzing district.
