King of the moguls

Another shot from the slopes during February’s trip to Telluride, Colorado. Riding up the Plunge lift one afternoon, the light was creating some striking definition of the Mammoth mogul run. I didn’t have my iPhone out so I was hoping that by the time I skied down and rode back up, the light hadn’t shifted too much. Luckily, the light was perfect and as I was shooting, a lone skier was coming down, making for a near-perfect composition. I hadn’t initially thought of it as a black and white shot but as I played around with it in PhotoToaster, the deep troughs of the bumps made it a no-brainer. Definitely one of my all-time favourite shots.

Taken in Telluride, Colorado (top of lift 5, Polar Queen, for ski bums). I was struck by the symmetry of rusted tin roof, the snow and the fir trees. Taken with iPhone 6 and messed with PhotoToaster and Snapseed to bring out some drama in the sky.

Tranquility

This shot of my kids sums up the beauty and peacefulness of a family holiday last summer, cruising the Nivernais Canal in the Bourgogne, France. Taken with iPhone 5 and given an artistic effect using Painteresque and Image Blender.

Football Fever

A random selection of crowd and local flavour shots from the FIFA World Cup in Brazil this summer. My son Toby (aged 11) and I spent three weeks watching games in Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Salvador and Belo Horizonte. Wonderful people, great atmosphere – and not a bad father-son bonding experience either!

These and the other Brazil photos in the previous post were shot on a pocket Canon Powershot SD1200 IS, iPhone 5 and iPod Touch.
