Thorvaldsen Museum, Copenhagen

 Thorvaldsen Museum, Copenhagen. 2023. I invite you to look closely at this one, there’s a fair bit happening (despite the main subject being chizelled out of stone)

Moody skies, Svalbard

Svalbard, 2023. Moody skies can really make a photograph. Other than the black and white conversion, this image is almost straight out of camera. ~KD

Early morning at the pond

Early morning in Kahna Tiger Reserve in India,  not a breath of wind and the pond has a glass-like reflective sheen.    It’s worth pausing from our pursuit of tigers and other wildlife to take in the scene and consider the photographic possibilities.

Monochrome or Colour – St Michael’s Mount

The mount has been the subject of myth and legend for centuries. Some of these stories, recorded as far back as 495AD. I do like the blue sky but I think there is a heightened sense of drama with the monochrome. Only minor adjustments were made to contrast values.

Winchester Cathedral interior

Photographing Winchester Cathedral

Winchester Cathedral, one of the largest in Europe, with the greatest overall length of any Gothic cathedral. I decided to go with the sepia toned monochrome treatment for this interior shot.

Mausoleum of General San Martín.

Cathedral in monochrome, Buenos Aires.

Buenos Aires Metropolitan Cathedral interior images lend themselves well to black and white.
