New Nature Photograph: Liliuokalani Palms

Fine Art Travel Photograph: Liliuokalani Palms by Nat Coalson

Hawaii is one of my favourite places on earth. There’s a feeling in the air—maybe the combined effects of sea, wind and sun—that creates a beautiful feeling of peace. In many places, too, there is a lovely aroma of flowers and tropical foliage.

Such is Queen Liliuokalani Gardens in the town of Hilo, on Hawaii Island. I spent a blissful afternoon exploring the park and gardens, and when I discovered this scene, I stayed a long while making many photographs.

New Collection: Seascapes in Monochrome

Fine Art Landscape Photography: Langs Beach (Monochrome) by Nat Coalson

I’ve recently begun working with a new client, through representation with one of my art consultants in London.

They sent me some examples of images they were looking for and asked if I had pictures in that style/genre.

As a result of the custom work on that project, I’ve created a new collection of nature/landscape photographs featuring dramatic rock formations set against the sea.

Here are a few of the new images; I’ll be adding more pictures to this collection so stay tuned!

New Landscape Photograph: The Bass Rock

Landscape Photograph: Bass Rock, Scotland by Nat Coalson

This landscape photograph shows Bass Rock, off the coast of North Berwick, Scotland, with a lone gannet flying in the blue sky.

Bass Rock is a steep-sided volcanic rock, 107 meters (351 ft) at its highest point. It is home to the world’s largest single rock colony of gannets, with over 150,000 birds. Viewed from the mainland, the surface of the rock appears white due to the number of birds and their droppings.

The rock is currently uninhabited, but historically has been settled by an early Christian hermit, and later was the site of an important castle, which was later used as a prison.

The island was in the ownership of the Lauder family for almost six centuries, and now belongs to Sir Hew Hamilton-Dalrymple.

The Bass Rock Lighthouse was constructed on the rock in 1902, and the remains of a chapel are located there.

The Bass Rock features in numerous works of fiction, including Robert Louis Stevenson’s Catriona and The Lion is Rampant by contemporary Scottish novelist Ross Laidlaw.

Fine art prints are available of this photograph. You can purchase standard prints online, or contact us for a custom quote.

New Scenic Travel Photograph: Ronda y Puente Nuevo

Scenic Travel Photograph: Ronda y Puente Nuevo by Nat Coalson

I made this scenic travel photograph at sunset in the village of Ronda, province of Malaga, Spain, during a two-week private photo tour with a client.

People have lived in the area around Ronda since prehistoric times. The town itself was founded by early Celts in the 6th century BC. The current town is of Roman origin and in the 2nd century BC received the title of city from Julius Caesar. Many centuries later, Ronda was conquered by the Islamic Berbers and served as the capital of a small kingdom. Islamic domination of Ronda came to an end in 1485 when the city was conquered by the Marquis of Cádiz.

Ronda was heavily affected by the Napoleonic Wars and the Spanish Civil War. Ernest Hemingway is believed to have modeled a story in ‘For Whom the Bell Tolls’ after events that occurred in Ronda.

The Puente Nuevo (‘New Bridge’) is one of three bridges that span El Tajo gorge, the deep canyon dividing the town. Building the bridge started in 1751 and was completed in 1793. It towers 120 meters (390 ft) above the canyon floor. The chamber beneath the central arch has been used for a variety of purposes, including a prison. During the 1936-1939 civil war both sides allegedly used the prison as a torture chamber for captured opponents, killing some by throwing them from the windows to the rocks at the bottom of the gorge.
