Rainy Riverside

On our first night in London for a long time, we headed to Tower Bridge, where I had intended to shoot the bridge in the royal blue twilight light. The weather had other ideas.  As the darkness crept in, so did the rain, and it drizzled relentlessly as we cowered under the barely-adequate shelter outside... [more]

Tel Aviv Twilight

On our last night in Tel Aviv on this most recent trip (the second to Israel in 2013), I was determined to capture an image of Tel Aviv during the evening twilight. We headed to Yafo earlier in the evening before golden hour, where I captured a number of images in the warm light, before... [more]

Golden Tel Aviv

We have visited Tel Aviv twice in 2013, and I had been wanting to capture an image of the Tel Aviv skyline against the Mediterranean Sea from Yafo. On our last visit, we ran out of time and decided to give it a try on the next visit, which was already being planned. On our... [more]

Here is the image I shot: These days, each of these factors on its own is quite rare. Firstly, I seldom get time... [more]

Cape Town and Table Mountain

During our short stay in Cape Town in October of 2012, during the first few days we could barely see the summit of Table Mountain, due to the 'Tablecloth' - a large formation of cloud which blankets the mountain. On this particular day, it was the first time we had an uninterrupted view of Table... [more]

Shalom from Tel Aviv

Shalom from Tel Aviv. Xenedette and I are in Israel for a few weeks. Tonight we headed to the Azrieli Centre in central Tel Aviv, where I shot this twilight cityscape looking south-west over Tel Aviv and towards the Mediterranean Sea. Unbelievable as it may sound, our time in Israel so far has been wet... [more]
