Water, water everywhere...

September 04, 2012  •  3 Comments

Today I thought I'd share something a bit different from my travels, in particular a few abstract images that I took a couple of weeks ago whilst sailing on the overnight ferry to Baubau in South Sulawesi, affectionately known as the 'slave ship' because of its economy on personal space and the occasional clouds of diesel fumes that can give it an unnerving appearance at times. Anyway, these images were all taken as the sun was setting overhead, and, resisting the temptation to point my lens at the burning skies above, I decided to click on my longest lens and shoot the streaming sea below... for fellow shutter-monkeys out there, these were all taken at 300mm and speeds of approximately 1/10th of a second... enjoy...

 

 

 

Ahhh, I do like something a bit abstract and arty every now and then. I actually think these three would make a great triptych of canvas prints in somebody's home... I'll work on getting that ready and release it as a limited edition someday soon - go and find a suitable wall somewhere and I'll keep you informed when it's ready!

Final image for today just proves that it's not just us who like to play with water. I had another amazing morning with the yaki a few days ago, very sadly my last for now as I'm moving on to new projects as we speak... Many, many thanks once again to Harry Hilser and the team at Selamatkan Yaki for making me so welcome and showing me the beauty of these legends of the forest, I wish you every success in securing their future with us on this little blue/green rock spinning in space...

 

Clap clap your hands! He never did catch that dragonfly...

 

Right, that's all for me for now, I have to go and find a new, more powerful way of removing essence of trees and mud from my clothes... you can take the photographer out of the forest...
