Best Landscape Photography Images of 2015

2015 has been a fantastic year for me in terms of landscape photography. With visits to Thailand, Cambodia, Alberta, Oregon, California, Utah, Nevada and British Columbia, I’ve seen more stunning locations this year than at any other time in my life, so I’m feeling pretty blessed.

It’s also been a really good year in terms of gear releases too. With the release of the Sony A7RII camera I’m able to capture even higher resolution for those wall sized prints and Zeiss have really stepped up their game with new E-Mount lens releases.

I thought I’d put together a compilation of my most popular images of 2015. These are the images that have gained the biggest response on Flickr and Google+ so I hope you enjoy them. Feel free to post any questions or comments if you’d like to know more about any of these images or how they were made.

Here’s hoping 2016 is just as productive.

Happy New Year

  6. great images!
    I see a lot of long exposure shots with the a7rii.
    How does it handle in real-life cases? I’m doing similar shots, as well as up to 5-10 minutes exposures (iso 100) and I’m worried about all that talk about chroma noise..

  7. Out of this world captures.
