Fire and Ice Results – Alan Ernst

Below are Alan’s six favorites from the Fire and Ice photo tour. We had ‘interesting’ weather that forced participants to dig deep to come up with creative images. As you can see from Alan’s images below, there is always something to shoot no matter what kind of light and weather nature throws at you.

  2. Veronica Barrett Says:

    Absolutely gorgeous, Alan! I marvel at the way you always find the most interesting shots whatever the conditions…best wishes, Roni

  3. Superb compositions.

    The elongated portrait style is very interesting

  4. Beautiful images Alan. Do you use the 4:3 aspect ratio for these wide angle shots? They look very much taller than wide for 4:3.

    • Alan Ernst Says:

      Hi Linda,
      My favourite aspect ratio is 16:9 landscape. On last week’s tour I wanted to look for subjects where I could apply it vertically. One of the main advantages of my Lumix system is that I can change aspect ratios on the fly, so I crop most of my images in the field to either 16:9, 3:2, 1:1 or 4:3, whereby 4:3 seems to be my least popular aspect ratio.
      Take care and hope to see you again one of these days at the lodge.

  5. These images are amazing, Alan…love the fairyland gate image…
