Geger Beach, Nusa Dua, Bali, Indonesia

The photographer writes about this photo: “My memories of Geger go way back to my first trip about 13 years ago. We were trying to promote seaweed mariculture and ground zero was Geger. Strolling by the beach once again and surveying the now-thriving industry make me proud.

I will never tire of revisiting Indonesia. Couldn’t wait for next week…”

beach of kvalvika - lofoten islands (another “perfect” place that stays in my memory),
originally uploaded by Reinhard.Pantke.

The photographer: this beach is north of the arctic circle, on the west side of lofoten. You reach the place after a hike, the water temperature is here around 12-14 degrees celsius (well in summer). Next stop to the west is greenland!!! But its a great place!”

Mono Lake Winter Kayaking2

Mono Lake Winter Kayaking2
The photographer: ” shot this with Fuji Velvia 50 and a 2-stop hard GND filter and scanned it with a Nikon Coolscan IV. No real “processing” other than to try and match the original slide. It was a stormy late afternoon and I was near Paoha Island out in Mono Lake looking west towards the Sierra crest. This was a multi-day mid-winter solo kayak trip. The water color in the shallows had a greenish tint but the deeper water was quite blue. Mono Lake is 3 times saltier than the ocean which is why it’s not frozen in winter.”

Gateway to hell



Gateway to hell, originally uploaded by hkvam “Námaskarđ has very active solfataras (sulphurous mud springs) and fumaroles (steam springs), none of which contain pure water. The mud craters are uncommonly large and are well worthy of the travelers attention, whereas many of the steam craters are drilling holes that have been covered with rocks. There is no vegetation in this high temperature area and the ground is sterile and very acidic due to the effects of the fumes from the mud springs.”

Lens: Sigma 10-20mm at 10mm.

I am NOT the Tourism Board., originally uploaded by ahmedzahid.

The photographer: When I was working at Sun Island ( www.villahotels.com/sun/index.htm )
this used to be a favourite spot.
Off limits for the tourists, (because of unloading and other back-house activities) this jetty is bypassed by many, as uninteresting and Ugly.

I find many photo opportunities, of both action and scenery, here.

Beauty, they say, is in the eye of the beholder.”

heaven and hell



heaven and hell, originally uploaded by awfulsara.

The photographer: “This is one of my all time favorites, the first photo I took that blew me away, opened my eyes to the possibilities before me.

Taken in February of last year in Yellowstone National Park. The scene was even more surreal than a still photo can do justice, with steam rolling over the rise, creating backlit shifting patterns and shrouding the trees from view completely. Then for a moment, just a tiny moment, it would clear and the scene would split in half - all color and light and pristine snow on one side and twisted, tortured trees & steaming algae covered rock on the other.

I was a newbie to my 10D, and SLR photography in general, and had goofy settings - 800 ISO among other ridiculousness - which makes this shot one I would desperately desire to “redo” although I doubt I could recreate this if I tried. I will say this: if you ever get the opportunity to visit Yellowstone in the winter, for the love of Pete take that opportunity and run with it. Algae & Ice was taken the same morning…
