Iceland and photography are like peanut butter and toast, they go together. It’s where glaciers, waterfalls and other-worldly landscapes await you and your camera, ready to provide the adventure of a lifetime.
Travel Photography – Behind the Scenes This year has been the biggest so far for The Wandering Lens and I wanted to take some time to share a little summary of the photography adventures I’ve had in 2017 with a few behind the scenes stories thrown in for fun.
Japan Photo Tour – Day One Sunrise at Sensoji Temple Walking through the historic streets of Asakusa at 5:30am, it was hard not to wonder what on earth we were doing awake.
Dubai – Photography Experience Aerial photography has long been one of my fascinations. Seeing the world from above; the patterns, formations and colours of nature, it’s like mother nature has creatively laid out all her goods ready to capture.
I know a place… Where frozen landscapes blend with sunset skies… Where reindeer forage in snow covered forests… Where the darkness is illuminated by dancing waves of green magic… Lapland is a paradise of another kind.
Every now and then I see the work of a photographer and am blown away. That happened when I saw an image of two buffalo drinking at a waterhole in South Africa under the stars.
So trash might not always be the word to use here but for the following story it is. In photography, part of the fun is attempting to create new angles, seek unique perspectives or just mix things up a little and get crazy creative.
Walking in a Winter Wonderland… The landscapes of Swedish Lapland in winter are like a snow globe come to life. White, bright and dreamy with a sky filled of constant dusk.
Paros Island is where white washed fishing villages, rocky coastlines and olive plantations meet the sparkling Aegean Sea. I like to think of it as the chilled out little sister to the more popular neighbouring islands of Mykonos, Ios and Santorini.
Remember when photography meant taking 24 photos per roll of film? Crossing your fingers as you waited for the roll to be developed, hoping at least one had okay lighting and colours?
Beautiful Beaches to Photograph Around the World Coastal landscapes have a way of drawing photographers to their shores. Whether it’s their crystal white sands, alluring clear waters, rugged rock formations or people watching potential.
When it comes to the business of inspiring wanderlust, travel photography plays a crucial role. It’s a profession about creating images that encapsulate the culture and sense of place along with the landscape and light.
When we look closely at the world there is a myriad of colourful palettes mixed within the landscapes. Sure snow is white, the sea is blue and trees are green but look even closer and you’ll see shades varying from light to dark, bright to dull.
Wanderlust is obviously something anyone reading a travel blog shares. We all dream of the next trip, that one place to escape, explore and see with our very own eyes.
Looking at this colourful fishing village on the Italian coast today you would never believe that four years ago it was buried four metres deep in mud.
