Incredibly beautiful photos, Christopher. I lived in Russia for 6 months and took some shots of fire and ice. Now I live in Turkey and walk on castle walls by the Mediterranean Sea. I’m doing an eBook of my Turkish adventures. Here is my photo of details I agonized over, putting my camera near the top of the castle wall in Alanya to catch it: http://lonnalisawilliams.wordpress.com/2013/03/04/on-the-road-walk-with-me/
I added photos in my “Digital Journal” photo essay (I write for them). What do you think? http://www.digitaljournal.com/article/344743
My photos are not as large, beautiful, and flawless as yours are. But I write simple stories to go with them and invite people simply to Walk with Me.
Keep up the great work! I’ve been to parts of British Columbia in winter. It is lovely there!

Just a quick comment regarding the Word Press Weekly Challenge: Lost in Details.
Terrific topic, well documented, and enjoyed you images. Good job!

Your work is exceptional. I’m so glad that I found you through the weekly photo challenge. While looking through the images of the monks, so many emotions stirred. To say your art is moving would be a gross understatement. It transports one into the moment captured. Thank you. I look forward to exploring your site and learning from your gift.
Blessings and Light,

Hello again! I just wanted to add that your photographs of the monks and nuns…there really are no words. The monks at sunset- the contrasts of color in some of the other shots. So, so, incredible and breathtaking. You must have won awards for these??

Christopher – I just wanted to send you a quick note of thanks for the Photo Challenge topic! I love getting lost in the detail with just about every photo that I take! I find myself prostrate on the ground quite a bit to get some great shots! Thanks again! – B

Amazing photos! Just one question about ISO 6400. Doesn’t make the picture blurry (if you want to enlarge it)?
March 1, 2013 at 12:54 pm
Hi Svetlana – it really depends on the sensor in the camera. With a small sensor (like those in point and shoot cameras), ISO 6400 will very likely look terrible particularly if you want to print them large. With SLR sized sensors (APS-C, full frame, increasingly with Micro 4/3 format, etc.) they handle low light, high ISO so well these days that you can enlarge, print, etc. with a lot of flexibility. The key is always with capturing the best image you can in-camera. For the night image in question, I needed a high ISO in order to get the short exposure time and still have decent depth of field gained by using f/8. As I compared in my post, I would not have been able to make this image the same way with an older model of dSLR. The high ISO did get too noisy – the image linked to in my post from a couple of years before was much noisier than I would print or enlarge. With the 5D Mark III (or any of the latest dSLRs and equivalents from Nikon, Canon, Pentax, Sony, etc.) the sensor is great at gathering light in dark scenes and the processors are very good at reducing noise while leaving the images sharp. For this particular night image of Elbow Falls, it has good sharpness and I would have little hesitation enlarging it for print or display.

Amazing photography. Thank you for sharing it. I’m particularly fond of dragonflies. Those photos made it feel like I was standing there watching them fly.
