    Iceland and am OM D

    I'm on the road in Iceland with an H4D and an OM D. They have been a great combination. I only have the 12-35 which has been much better than I expected. None of these shots have had any work yet but I thought that they may be of interest.

    and apologies in advance for the last shot, not taken in Iceland. I have a severe dislike of stick families on cars.

    Ditto...

    To much spam...too little time.

    And Jeff would love to see the pics elsewhere.

    Thanks,

    Sorry folks, if I get time, I'll put a page on my website but it's a bit hectic. I didn't know that you had to sign up to look at stuff on FB.

    Wow, what a country for landscapes. I'm glad the two very different cameras are working well for you.

    Re: Iceland and am OM D

    Thanks Steve, it is an excellent combination. I could get a lot of shots with it that I just wouldn't try on the Hasselblad. I can also walk around with it for a long time, and use IBIS to get crisp images.
    Cheers,

    Re: Iceland and am OM D

    I'm back and starting to put some of the images on my own site. Any 16MP digital is OM D, and 40MP is the H4D. I'm working on the H stuff at the moment. I have loaded more onto FB for those who use it.

    Re: Iceland and am OM D

    Thanks. I put up a more eclectic mix on FB. A lot of them are unworked. It was more of a travelogue than fine art.

    Re: Iceland and am OM D

    Here's a collection in a private gallery on my site. This is a work in progress and has mainly H4D images at the moment, more Oly to follow as I work my way through the mass.

    Thanks Bob. It was certainly productive. It's taking me quite a while to work my way through the keepers.

    +1 - Great images Jeff.
    My wife promised me a trip to Iceland for a Christmas present about 10 years ago . . . somehow it hasn't happened. Maybe next year!

    Wonderful.

    Just this guy you know

    Re: Iceland and am OM D

    Lovely photos Jeff! Landmannalaugur is really something special. I have only been there once, despite living here about six years now. I shall try to remedy that!

    Jono -- do let me know if you ever make it over here. I would be happy to meet up or offer some suggestions about the place. For example, horses, whales and puffins...whether you want to look at them or eat them, I can probably help you!
    My photos are here: http://www.stuartrichardson.com and more recent work here: http://stuartrichardson.tumblr.com/ Please have a look at my book!

    Thanks gents, if you can get in a helicopter any time, grab the chance. I have had two flights and they were both absolutely gobsmacking. It's like photographer's heaven.

    I did see Minke whale on a lot of menus but just couldn't bring myself to eat it. Australia is currently engaged in a court battle with Japan over their 'scientific whaling'. I did, however, have cormorant and pink footed goose which were great.

    Re: Iceland and am OM D

    Really? I have not had those, nor seen them on offer. I am also not in favor of the whaling. Minke is not endangered, but still it does not seem to be a particularly good thing for Iceland, either ethically or economically. There are only a very few companies and people that benefit from whaling here, few Icelanders eat whale regularly and the tourism industry, for example dwarfs it in size and of course suffers from the negative publicity and effects of the whaling...whale watching and whale hunting don't go so well together in the same waters, for example.

    I will look into the helicopters, however. I have not been up in one here. I went up briefly in a small plane, and that was fun, but it was not over a particularly scenic area. Just flying across the country on a domestic flight is gorgeous, however...it is too high for most picture taking though.

    Re: Iceland and am OM D

    Úlfar Finnbjörnsson is the man. He prepared superb meals for us each night in a tent in a lava field. On the flights, it helps to have Hans Strand around guiding the pilot. I know that getting the helicopter there is horrendously expensive but it is a vastly superior platform to a fixed wing plane. Most of my aerials were taken about 200 meters up.

    Jeff, it's so nice to be able to see a lot of photographs at once in your working gallery. Again, the patterns made by partial snow cover are terrific.

    Re: Iceland and am OM D

    Thanks Steve. Glad you like the working gallery, only a few will make it my my site permanently but I wanted to show the full lot for a while. I do think that I was incredibly lucky with the timimg and light on the day. There were two other flights after mine, one got flat light, the other rain.
