Gaewern, Bastard Countryside.. Over the years Ive photographed in many abandoned mines across North Wales. To make this particular picture I had to abseil down a cliff and inflate a small raft. There was some natural light coming through a large crack top left so I used a really long exposure with a bit of fill-in from a powerful torch to get the shot you see here.
Invalid Data: Kati Thanda / Lake Eyre 12/03/2017. Scientists at Geoscience Australia use satellite images to track environmental change over time, and they use complex algorithms to filter clouds from the data because they obscure the view of the land. Using the same algorithms but inverting normal scientific process, this Landsat 8 satellite image shows a dramatic cloud formation occurring over Kati Thanda / Lake Eyre on the 12th of March 2017.

Apex. A rise in the ocean's swell, colliding perfectly to create an Apex. I remember the anticipation and moments before capturing this image. I swam and watched as two waves tracked each other, on course to collide. I yelled in excitement as the ocean formed a large mountain in front of me. This is the exhilarating feeling that keeps me coming back for more. tallemmensphoto.com @tallemmens

As the Devil Descends Upon The Earth. An afternoon stroll turned dark very quickly. Immersed in conversation and not noticing the colour fading from all around us. Darkness descended, draining the life out of the grass, the trees , the flowers.
