End of day

Facebook page First day at Grand Teton National Park, on my way back from Solitude lake after hiking more than 10 hours, half of the time on a fully snowy trail. The sun was setting down on a tiny lake along the path. We stopped just a few minutes in this absolutely quiet place, as we still had a long way to come back to the campground. I wished I could stay longer to enjoy the sunset, but I was still 4 hours away from the camp. I had to finish the trail hiking by night in the bear territory, but it was worth every step.

Shadows of Vik

The famous rocks of Vik, Iceland in June. I've never seen Vik under the sun, but the last time I came, the weather offered me an amazing storm scene for the blue hour from Reynisfjara beach. --- Canon EOS 5D Mark III + EF24-105mm f/4L IS USM @60mm, f/6.3, iso400, 103 sec (Lee Filter Big stopper)

Out of the fog

First rays of sun on the Machu Picchu, the fog disappears slowly to discover the entire site. A magic moment Canon EOS 5D Mark III + EF24-105mm f/4L IS USM @28mm, ISO100, 1/200, f/9 - DRI from 5 Raws (-1,3/+1,3IL)

Rum at sunset

During an overnight trip in the Wadi Rum desert in the south of Jordan, our bedouin guide bring us on the best spot he knows, far away from anything, to enjoy the sunset while he was starting up a fire to prepare the tea

The North Face

Last evening before hiking the Stampede trail to the "Magic Bus", and for the very first time since we arrived in Alaska, a quite good weather. As I felt like I've missed too much things due to the climate, this was my last chance to discover Denali mountains and glacier with offering me a trip over Denali in an aircraft. An amazing 1 hour flight, a few meters from the ridges. --- Canon EOS 5D Mark III + EF24-105mm f/4L IS USM @58mm, f/6.3, iso200, 1/640

Parinacota

A few minutes before crossing the border between Chile and Bolivia, on my way to the altiplano. Natural border of Chile and Bolivia, the Parinacota (6,348 m/20,827 ft) is a potentially active volcano Canon EOS 5D Mark III + EF24-105mm f/4L IS USM @40mm, ISO200, 1/1000, f/5.6

The three of night

An amazing three, along the road to Lough Ennell lake, Ireland. I wish I was here for the sunset, but I only got the blue hourCanon EOS 5D Mark III + EF24-105mm f/4L IS USM @40mm, f/7.1, 1.6s, ISO 400 (tripoded)

Destination Calais

A few seconds after the beginning of the 10th edition of la route du Rhum, a transatlantic single-handed yacht race. An apocalyptic mood, with a last ray of sun before the storm, producing an absolutely stunning light. --- Canon EOS 5D Mark III + EF35-350mm f/3.5-5.6L USM @110mm, f/5, 1/6400, ISO800

Into the fog

Despite of my expectation, the weather was quite bad when I arrived to the famous Jokulsarlon in Iceland. Low clouds, iceberg entirely surrounded by the fog, rain and poor visibility (Basic icelandic weather so¬タᆭ). After waiting 2 hours, the visibility improved a little bit, with sometimes a very shy sunray to warm the place and create a foggy atmosphere at the surface around the floating iceberg --- Canon EOS 5D Mark III + EF24-105mm f/4L IS USM @105MM, 1/320, ISO50, f/6.3

Milky Rum

During an overnight trip in a tiny bedouin camp in the Wadi Rum desert, an usually amazing photospot for crazies skyscapes. It was unfortunately a full-moon night. Alarm set at 4.00am, ouch, just after the moonset, barely 30 minutes before the first lights of the sunrise. I rubbed my eyes, put a jacket and took my tripod. Temperature is fine, sky is great, but to be honest not as much as I imagined, but this is anyway a great moment. A few minutes to find an appropriate foreground, and the milky way began to disappear slowly, a new day began over Jordan --- Canon EOS 5D Mark III + EF17-40mm f/4L USM @17mm, 30s, f/4, ISO6400 (+a second shot 30 minutes later to get a better-exposed foreground)

Treasury in the night

On our way back to the city of Petra at the end of the day, the treasury place full of light candles and dim lighting, ready for the "Petra by night" event. If the so-called 'show' is a real joke imao, the moment before the tourists arrive definitely worth the 12 dinars --- Canon EOS 5D Mark III + EF17-40mm f/4L USM @17mm, f/5.6, 5S, ISO 1250

Atlantic Road

The famous national road 64 section, in Norway, also known as "The Atlantic Road", before sunset. An 8km road which runs through small islands, spanned by eight bridges and several landfills along the Atlantic. Drove it 3 times in a row, a very nice moment on a such uncommon road. --- Canon EOS 60D + EF24-105mm f/4L IS USM @105mm, f/8, 1/30, iso 200

Behind the fall

Before coming to iceland, I imagined being at Seljalandsfoss for an amazing sunset, and get a terrific shot of this wonderful place. That was unfortunately just a dream, I tried 2 different days, but the only thing I got was a heavy rain on a windy day. Any long exposure shot had finished with a dozen of water drops on the lens, but that's part of Icelandic magic. I finally left the fall with this one (DRI with 2 shots), wet but happy anyway --- Canon EOS 5D Mark III + EF17-40mm f/4L USM @17mm, f/9, ISO50, 1/13

Kilimanjaro shadow

The 3rd and last day before the summit of Kilimanjaro, Tanzania. Same weather each day, blue sky on the morning over a cloud sea, then the clouds rose slowly in the early afternoon till fully covering the summit. A wonderful point of view which truly deserves his nickname of "Roof of Africa", I'll never forget the sunrise at the summit after climbing all night long.

Golden rays

Sunrise thought the forest down the Villarrica, one of Chile's most active volcanoes, a few minutes after starting to climb. Snowboard fixed to my backpack, ready for a 5 hours climb till the crater and his smokes. After saying a few minutes at the summit (due to toxical smokes), time to climb down in snowboard, one of the coolest memories in my life. Follow me on FB: https://www.facebook.com/bgspix

Tram Trails

Trams trails in Budapest, Hungary. I had to wait almost 1 hour to get the shot I wanted, as there was only 1 tram every 10 minutes. I used my pop-up flash (2nd curtain) to freeze the tram at the end of the exposure. Canon EOS 60D + EF 25-105 f/4L IS @ 24mm, f/11, iso200, 2s + pop-up flash (2nd curtain), tripoded

Good Morning Africa

During a night in a camp site located very close to Manyara Lake National Park in Tanzania, an amazing point of view over the park and the rift Valley a few minutes before the sunrise, with amazing pastel tones in the sky. Alone to enjoy this moment, a really nice feeling of freedom.

An incredible place for photographers, so much lines, perspectives and different textures.

United Colors of Yellowstone

Overview on Grand Prismatic Spring, probably the most amazing treasury of Yellowstone National Park, and one of the largest hot spring in the world. The most frustrating thing in this incredible place is probably the lack of any high point surrounding the spring to get a better perspective, might be a perfect place for drone photography¬タᆭ --- Canon EOS 5D Mark III + EF24-105mm f/4L IS USM @105mm, f/6.3, 1/125, iso 50 (Polar filter)
