Pamukkale, Turkey

Pamukkale, Turkey

Pamukkale is a fascinating natural wonder in South-Western Turkey. The sides of a large hill are covered in Travertine Terraces – calcium carbonate deposits left by thermal spring waters. I visited on an overcast day, so the photos I got don’t do the site justice. You’ll find plenty of photos online of snow-white slopes against bright blue skies… The drizzle...

Cloud Forest Silhouette

Cloud Forest Silhouette

I recently had a photoshoot with a dancer, and got some great photos of her in silhouette. Once I had processed the silhouette in black and white, I was then inspired by two of Magritte’s paintings, and here’s what I came up with. The inspirational Magritte paintings: The Blank Check (left) and The Large Family...

While there were few photogenic subjects in the city, the Botanic Gardens contained a wealth of stunning visual treats. I also put together another Colour & Form montage from the Botanic Gardens . Purple Pansies Close-up of...

One of the displays demonstrated the phenomenon of sublimation (see the Wikipedia article on sublimation for a more detailed background). The simple set-up allowed small pellets of solid carbon dioxide (dry ice) to come into...

Red vs Green

Red vs Green

The back of the New Court building in St. John’s is covered in vines. From spring to summer, they’re a verdant green, and towards autumn, they turn red before falling. I managed to get photographs of the leaves when green, and then again when red (a week before they fell), and noticed that I had photos of the same windows before and after the colours...
