I’ve entered some new work in the The Open  a world wide photography competition. In 2012 my Sunrise in the Sunset shot was included in the final 200 images.

I entered a night time aerial view of San francisco, and five aerials from my Iceland trip. My submission included two new abstract views of the Ölfusá River

My aerial of the Sunset district took 3rd place in the Architecture - Cityscapes category and my Salt ponds shot got an Honorable Mention in Nature - Aerial category.

This year the 2013 International Photography Awards received nearly 15,000 submissions from 104 countries across the globe. The jury included respected magazine photo editors, curators and art buyers.

It’s always a great feeling to have been selected for an award and to check out the other winners work. 

Icelandic Roads from the air

I only had time for a quick shoot during my Iceland trip but the landscape near Reykjavik changes pretty dramatically in only 15 minutes of flying.

Bláfjallavegur Road looked amazing curving through the snow covered lava fields near the Thrihnukagigur Volcano. The lava fields had some interesting patterns so I spent a little time trying to get some more abstract views with a hint of road for scale.

Colourful apartment buildings in Reykjavik, Iceland

Scandinavian houses use a lot of colour for the exteriors. I’m not sure why, but it makes for some great photos. It’s good to see that the tradition also applies to larger buildings such as these blocks of flats ( apartments ) in Reykjavik.

Salt ponds near the Dumbarton Bridge, San Francisco Bay.

These ponds can range in color from pale green to bright red depending on the salinity of the pond.

I’ll have to spend some more time shooting the vibrant colors and the abstract shapes these salt ponds make. I want to go back again for another shoot when they are bright red !
