Landmannalaugar in the summer

February 10th, 2018

Landmannalaugar is located in the highlands in Iceland. This was taken during a 10km hike around this incredible place, quite difficult to get to regardless of conditions.

Cosmic Cliffs in the Carina Nebula

July 12th, 2022

What looks much like craggy mountains on a moonlit evening is actually the edge of a nearby, young, star-forming region NGC 3324 in the Carina Nebula. Captured in infrared light by the Near-Infrared Camera (NIRCam) on NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope, this image reveals previously obscured areas of star birth.

Called the Cosmic Cliffs, the region is actually the edge of a gigantic, gaseous cavity within NGC 3324, roughly 7,600 light-years away. The cavernous area has been carved from the nebula by the intense ultraviolet radiation and stellar winds from extremely massive, hot, young stars located in the center of the bubble, above the area shown in this image. The high-energy radiation from these stars is sculpting the nebula’s wall by slowly eroding it away.

NIRCam – with its crisp resolution and unparalleled sensitivity – unveils hundreds of previously hidden stars, and even numerous background galaxies. Several prominent features in this image are described below.

  • The “steam” that appears to rise from the celestial “mountains” is actually hot, ionized gas and hot dust streaming away from the nebula due to intense, ultraviolet radiation.
  • Dramatic pillars rise above the glowing wall of gas, resisting the blistering ultraviolet radiation from the young stars.
  • Bubbles and cavities are being blown by the intense radiation and stellar winds of newborn stars.
  • Protostellar jets and outflows, which appear in gold, shoot from dust-enshrouded, nascent stars.
  • A “blow-out” erupts at the top-center of the ridge, spewing gas and dust into the interstellar medium.
  • An unusual “arch” appears, looking like a bent-over cylinder.

This period of very early star formation is difficult to capture because, for an individual star, it lasts only about 50,000 to 100,000 years – but Webb’s extreme sensitivity and exquisite spatial resolution have chronicled this rare event.

Located roughly 7,600 light-years away, NGC 3324 was first catalogued by James Dunlop in 1826. Visible from the Southern Hemisphere, it is located at the northwest corner of the Carina Nebula (NGC 3372), which resides in the constellation Carina. The Carina Nebula is home to the Keyhole Nebula and the active, unstable supergiant star called Eta Carinae.

NIRCam was built by a team at the University of Arizona and Lockheed Martin’s Advanced Technology Center.

Siblings

December 11th, 2012

It was raining all day but I decided to go out shooting... This kind of weather usually creates beautiful lighting conditions when the Sun is setting. I was very lucky because it stopped raining just about five minutes before this shot was taken.

Baby Beach Sunset

January 15th, 2018

The lack of clouds had me expecting a pretty boring sunset, but I was pleasantly surprised when the one decent cloud in the sky seemed to be perfectly placed in front of the sun. A Maui local pointed out that the tops of these mountains are rarely seen at sunset, usually buried in clouds, so I was capturing something unique. It was a lovely evening!

Wings of Angels - Northern Lights on Iceland

January 22nd, 2018

I'm currently on Iceland and was quite disappointed the last time when I travelled here (drone crash, bad weather and almost no northern lights).

This time however, my return to Iceland was awarded with the most powerful northern lights I've ever seen!

Shot from the summit of Smith Rock, outside Bend, Oregon. If you ever go here I can't emphasize enough to take the Misery Ridge trail.

Switzerland Vastness

September 18th, 2013

This picture was taken from an outlook platform with a 360-degree view of the beautiful and mind-blowing Mount Pilatus, Switzerland. Definitely a whorthwhile trip for anyone visiting the Swiss Alps.

The Birthplace of Rivendell

November 29th, 2016

It is said that Tolkien travelled through the landscape of Switzerland to the Lauterbrunnen Valley, a deep valley that many people now believe was the direct inspiration for the valley of Rivendell, a place instrumental to events both in The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.

The name Rivendell itself means "Deeply Cloven Valley" and the Lauterbrunnen, with its steep sides and many waterfalls (72 to be exact), certainly fits this description, with the mountains of the Eiger, Monch, and Jungfrau lying beyond.

Victoria's View

May 7th, 2017

View from Victoria Peak onto Hong Kong, Kowloon and the surrounding areas.

Taken with Canon EOS 5DS R and the Zeiss Milvus 18mm lens, the sharpness and the level of detail are absolutely insane. You will need some time to practice because there is no autofocus on those lenses but its so much fun (and results are so insane) once you got used to it.
