2 random landscapes and a rainbow
Lens: DA*16-50, FA43ltd and DA10-17FE Camera: K-7 Photo Location: Nuuk 
Posted By: Duplo, 08-02-2010, 03:39 PM

Well, having tried my hand at posting portraits, I think it is time to go back to something more familiar - Landscapes.

First of is an image from a recent trip to a river area where we spend a weekend tenting in some very dull weather.
However on the last day the weather cleared and on a short 4 hour hike I came across this image:
(K-7 and DA*16-50@22mm)


Second image is from a different trip to a closed down settlement, where they have an abandoned fish factory, combine it with a round of ice cubes left by the tide and you get this:
K-7 and FA43ltd)


Third image is one shot hanging out my living room window at second floor, grabbing the frame with my legs steadying me and shielding from the rain with one hand and the camera in the other, while trying to get a clear shot of the rainbow.
Not the best image, but I have never seen a rainbow like this one.
(K-7 and DA10-17FE @ 13mm)


Thanks for looking, comments and questions are as always welcome

To me 4 hours is a short hike, but point taken

I have to agree with you here Dave. As you know a four hour walk for me would be interesting though feeling better nbow that I have gone a year without smoking! Ok, the pictures. I really like this series. The first image is what it was meant to be B&W. Awesome shot. The last one, well that is one interesting rainbow. Did you have some sort of filter on? Thank you for sharing. JIM

I like these images. Especially the composition in the third one.

Also, they remind me of Greenland, which to me is a bonus. Am I close?

Congrats on that year Jim, I will round a year on November 3rd, odd thing is that i cannot feel the slightest difference having quit smoking, Ok save for the lack of complaints from my better half

Thanks for liking the images.

The third one is a rainbow unlike anything I have seen before. Sunset this time of year turns everything very red for a somewhat brief moment, first time I have seen that and a rainbow at the same time, but would not mind seeing it again better prepared.

Thanks for liking gfonso, means a lot to me.

Greenland is exactly where they are from.
#1 is from Ilorsuit, #2 from Qoornoq and #3 from Nuuk

Ha, I should have looked at the info on top and wouldn't have had to ask

Also, now I remember having seen (and loved) some of your arctic images in the dpreview forum.

I have a place in my heart for Greenland, I had a great trip there a few years ago, a 2-week unsupported kayaking traverse in the southwestern fjords, paddling among the icebergs and enjoying the almost incessant rain All those magnificent landscapes, and the light, motivated me to take photography seriously, even though (or maybe because) my 5 MP point and shoot managed to get me a few awesome photos. It was all in the subject, though.

I'd love to go back, but there's so much to see in this world...

Well I do not think I put Greenland in the tittle line, so no way to know for sure

Thanks for remembering and liking my past images, that too is greatly appreciated.

I am not much of a kayaking kind of guy, but I bump into kayakers all the time and I can definitely see why they feel it is so amazing.
Must have been an amazing trip.
