Cloud Trail

The World Ski and Snowboard Festival has been and gone in Whistler.  Unfortunately I missed most of it as I left the country for a week.  The good news is I was gone to attend a wedding.  A fantastic wedding.  I was actually put into a suit.  Outrageous.

English House

While I was in Norfolk I experimented with a new photo technique.  I took the technique I use when taking star trails and applied it to clouds.  I was relatively happy with my first attempt and I cannot wait to play around with this more over the next few months.

What do you think? Any comments, advice or ideas?

Star Trail in Chamonix

Awhile ago now, when I was in Chamonix in January, I wanted to attempt a star trail photograph in the French Alps.  Unfortunately the view towards the more dramatic peaks and the Aiguille du Midi was obscured by blowing snow.  So I aimed my camera at the only space in the sky that was clear.  It’s not perfect however this is what I came up with.

Balcons Star Trail

What do you think? Is it better in colour or black and white?
