Thought you guys might get some ideas and inspiration from these two pro landscape photographers one from South Africa and one from the area I stay in Australia - both areas offer dramatic landscapes to work with but both then do magic with their knowledge, lenses and patience.
There is no electronic altering.

In tropical Australia
About the Photographer :: Peter Jarver Fine Art Photography
his early death was a loss to the world.
I own this - just getting it framed


Where There's Water There's Life :: Peter Jarver Fine Art Photography

and his black and white are wonderful as well. His main gallery is in the tiny town of Kuranda that I will retire to....the varied landscapes in the area with savannah, rain forest and barrier reef all next to each other were endless subjects for him


In South Africa....Liesel Kerschoff drama queen of landscape photography. - I own this one


Landscape Photography: Liesel Kershoff: About

Talking to Leisel she said she sells so few in her home country as the landscape itself is dramatic.

I thought it might inspire all of use in framing and light. I love the use of reflection in the Peter Jarver we bought.
One of my clients knew him personally and said it was quite a loss to the community.

It's very worthwhile in my view to cruise their galleries and carefully look at lighting and composition.
Some just take my breath away when you see them in the gallery .
There is one by Peter of a lilypad that I REALLY wanted.

Both are excellent photos...

But today's post capture technology is a great tool and it does not diminish nor really elevate these photographers in camera accomplishments as there is much that can be achieved in post that cannot be achieved in camera...

All that one needs to do is to look at some of the Rayograms of Man Ray to know that you can make great photos, that have nothing to do with a camera at all, to know that photography is a very broad spectrum of possibilities and the technical means by which one achieves those ends is more or less irrelevant... It is simply the final image that is most important.

Perhaps a different set of values in play. The point of the exercise was to demonstrate what can be done without any post processing and see what two successful photographers present as their finest images.

If it gives ideas on composition and lighting great, and the photos themselves, many are just stunning. In both cases it's one reason I love traveling to SA and tropical Aus. Dramatic landscapes.
Ontario has it's areas and delights especially spring and fall but the crazy range of landscapes and contrasts in both antipode nations are visual eye candy.

Just seeing some of my photos from Aus on the Cinema display for the first time and found a few keepers I had not noticed. Cropped this and like the sweep the of the clouds.

This is on the Captain Cook Highway on the way up to Cape Tribulation ( where he put a hole in his boat - hence the name )



this is certainly my fav photo of the trip up the Daintree....what a lovely two nights we had.

When trees are scarce as in this part of the Little Karoo desert in Western Cape South Africa..... build with what's available in quantity

Again in western cape = the farm house had been there for about 100 years. - Lovely old wooden beams and odd curves.
Was not sure how to frame this as loved the curve and the wood but wanted to catch cat trying to decide to call it a night.



same place in the brilliant Cape sunshine...classic Boer building.


Full size you can see the limits of the lens show up on the left.

Boosted up to the Bruce Peninsula today - a last bid for freedom before I take on a new gig to take me through the next several months. Incidental water feature, Cape Croker area. Dang, this is some of the most glorious country I've seen in all of Ontario. This particular photo gives no evidence of the scope of magnificent rugged vistas that are simply stunning in their raw intrinsic beauty; but hey, to a habituated city slicker like myself, starved for some au naturel wonderment, I'll take what I can get.
