For the second year, here is the Casey Station resupply timelapse, in Antarctica.
Just a quick little request for those who have an Instagram account, Follow me!
Here are a few of the latest posts:
📷🐘 Elephant Seals. Browning Peninsula, Antarctica. I found these guys again this year down at their landing spot on the coast. They hang on the rocks all day and sleep, looking so relaxed. They only move to reshuffle and occasionally yawn like in this image. Such gentle giants on land. Probably killers in the water. #aad #antarctica #antarctic #adventure #earth #explore #expedition #exploration #travel #photography #photo #life #nature #wildlifephotography #world #wildlife #seal #elephantseal #globalwarming #climatechange #canon @canonaustralia @bestintravel @lonelyplanet @natgeotravel @natgeo #canonaustralia
Monsters of the Deep.
During my time down at Casey Station in Antarctica this season, i got to go out on a ‘burg cruise’ in the IRB’s. A trip on the boats to drive around some of the giants in the southern ocean. These iceburgs are huge from a distance and massive up close. They are big on top of the water and monsters under the surface. Some are grounded and dont move for years. Others float back and forth daily. Overall it was such a amazing experience i will never forget.
Here are some photos i got from my GoPro camera half underwater trying to show the size of them. The last is from the Canon showing what it looks like on top. Remember 10% on top 90% underneath.
Well, a time has come for me to get ‘back’ into film. I say ‘back’ like that because i never really was seriously into photography before digital. I always had a small camera of some kind, but it was for fun and nothing of any thought. The last 4 years or so i have had a DSLR and have been learning from others and teaching myself on all kinds of YouTube tutorials and camera forum threads. Endless forums… Lately i have felt the need to slow down my photography. To know what each shot feels like when i click that shutter. To take my time and take in the world and my surroundings. So, film rangefinders it is. I like the rangefinder because it almost is like an extension of my eye. I can look through the rangefinder and see pretty much what i see without it there. The 0.85 finder and 35mm lens is a great combination. Real life. Now, i have a few film cameras. All of which i like.
Except this one.
It is a Leica M6.
And i love it!
Leica M6 ttl with a 0.85 finder to be exact. Plus a Voigtlander 35mm ƒ/2.5 lens on it.
Don’t get me wrong, i will still love my DSLR and use it for most things, but this little beauty will be with me everywhere and be documenting my life around me more than ever. It is built so well and even though it’s over 10 years old, it’s in mint condition. It feels like something that’ll out last me and keep on going. Many thanks to Bellamy at Japancamerahunter.com for finding this for me. He’s a legend.
Now to just find some bulk film and setup a home developing studio.
Here are a handful of images i took with my 100mm macro and the 5dmkIII to show you some details of this fine camera. The last one is a shot of my bag setup when shooting film only. Ready for anything.
