📰 Photography News Digest 📰

“No place is boring as long as you’ve had a good night’s sleep and a pocket full of unexposed film.” 
Robert Adams

  • The newsletter’s late this week, I’m gonna blame March Break and too much wine over the weekend. To kick things off, congratulations to Gonzalo Ruiz Calvera again for his February win. We’ve posted a full recap of the month’s best images on our blog: PIXEO Photo Challenge February Recap.
  • This week in gear we’re lusting after Leica’s latest release. Leica Q2 has hit the street and DP Review has had a look under the hood. The verdict: it remains one of the best all-in-one, lightweight, fixed-lens cameras on the market.
  • I’m on a 12 step program trying to kick my clarity addiction. It’s a struggle but I am making progress. This video from Mark Denney really is helping.
  • I had a blast researching and exploring this week’s feature photography destination. Check out the White Temple, Wat Rong Khun on the PIXEO Blog and add this wild Buddhist Temple to your bucket list!

Las Setas De Sevilla - Photo by Ashley Garvin

Not satisfied with picking just one, we also decided to include this shot from Ashley Garvin as a finalist this week. Ashley’s viewpoint from the top of Setas de Sevilla captures one of our favourite locations beautifully. The contrast of yellow and blue again makes this shot amazing with soft magenta tones in the city. Amazing work Ashley!   This image is our shot of the week for the PIXEO Photo Challenge.

📸 Top Photo Destinations of the Week 📸

Manhattan City Skyline

Manhattan Skyline from Brooklyn - Photo by Kuki Bastos
Next, we have a new user, Kuki Bastos, who captured this scenic view looking out over Old Pier 1 along the East River in New York. A great location for shooting the Manhattan skyline, I’m amazed by the silky smooth water of the long exposure combined with the seabirds nesting on the tops of the what I assume are breakwater posts.
Kuki has a great website here  👉 kuxkix.darkroom.tech

Ford Street Bridge

Ford Street Bridge in Llano, Texas - Photo by Darren Fast
Darren Fast is in Texas this week, with this cool shot of Ford Street Bridge over the Llano River. A lovely trestle bridge near a dam, this area begs to be photographed.

Florence City Skyline

Florence Italy City Skyline - Photo by Vinicius Melo
Vinicius Melo photographed this scenic view looking out over the Florence cityscape from the Piazzale Michelangiolo. This is a superb shooting location where you can see the ancient cities skyline and the beautiful Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore in the distance.

Tulip Falls

Tulip Creek Waterfall - Photo by Scott Goldsworthy
Scott Goldsworthy followed a small roadside trail to discover the beautiful frozen Tulip Creek waterfall.  This very short trail is located within Syringa Creek Park. The trail follows Tulip Creek into an impressive canyon marked by red-stained rock walls covered by velvety moss and the occasional fern. An impressive double cascade fall makes this scenic spot both winter and summer.

Niagara Canyon at Goldstream

Goldstream Provincial Park - Photo by Shawn M. Kent

Another from my adventures on Vancouver Island this week. I was in seventh heaven shooting Goldstream Provincial Park. This is a view up the Niagara Canyon from the footbridge near the base of the canyon.

🏢 Meanwhile at PIXEO HQ 🏢

So begins March Break for us here in Ottawa. Finally, temperatures are starting to turn and I am excited for the shooting opportunities that spring will bring. As the snow and ice melt, the waterfalls, creeks and rapids in the area will be at their best. If you’re looking for me there’s a good chance I will be with my camera and tripod knee deep in some rushing water. Hope to see you there too!

Tafraoute
I love finding unique locations to add to our #PIXEO collection and the Blue Rocks of Tafraoute are definitely that. In the middle of the sandy #Moroccan countryside there's a grouping of huge rocks that have been painted the brightest #blue.
