The drive to this spot, just outside of Cassis, was pretty difficult. The roads were really tight and I was adjusting to driving a manual transmission again for the first time in a few years. At one point, I was driving up a steep hill and a car came round the corner causing me to stall the car. The problem was I also rolled back about 2 yards. I have no idea how I avoided hitting the car behind me.

This is a calanque. It is a narrow-steep walled inlet carved into the limestone rock. When we got there, I had no idea it was going to be full of sailboats like this!

I haven’t posted anything from Bermuda in a long time and wanted to get something up from the island. I shot this time-lapse in summer with plans to stick it in a larger video, but thought I’d post this 8 seconds as a preview.

I’ve been wanting to photograph this for a while. Tonight I was out working on a new project in Bermuda and was inspired to finally get down and try to grab a shot of this old chimney. I’ve been wanting to try photographing the stars for a while now. I didn’t think I’d get a chance tonight as it was pretty stormy. When I got there, I realized that the clouds were sparse and moving quickly. By dragging my shutter I was able to stretch out the clouds and capture some of the stars behind them.

Iceland Progress

I wish I could say that I’ve missed the past couple of day’s posts because I didn’t have any internet. Instead, we’ve just been operating on a pretty exhausting schedule. We’re about to finish our circumnavigation of the country. Yesterday, I realized that I could film a pretty cool time-lapse while driving using my wide angle lens, my back-up camera, intervalometer and a Nikon lens cap someone left in our jeep before we picked it up. I realized this yesterday, on our second last day. I could have had a video of the entire journey, but I only realized it yesterday. It’s alright though, it just means I’ll have to come back, I’m thinking for the whole month of June next year. We’ve been talking about how to spend a month here as it’s painfully expensive – we’re dropping about $100 on gas alone every day. The country’s full of free campsites, so I think on my return I’ll be sleeping in a tent. It’s good though, as there’s no need to meet check-in times and you can decide to stop whenever you get too tired to go on. Today we head to Reykjavik, after backtracking a bit to the glacier bay. It was cloudy and rainy yesterday and last night, so decided to leave photographing the crystal blue chunks of ice until the sun was out this morning. Tonight, we’ll be snorkeling the rift under the midnight sun and then possibly touring the Golden Circle, which will get us truly back on the tourist trail.

Today’s Photo: Martello Tower

Back to Bermuda in a couple of days when I’ll actually get to process some Iceland photos! Here’s a shot from Bermuda taken a few weeks ago up at Ferry Reach.
