Last week I surpassed 100 blog posts here on WordPress, which I feel is something of a milestone. I’d like to say a big thank you to everybody who continues to visit, like and comment here on Flights Camera Satisfaction. It really means the world to me! This adventure was born out of a desire to share and improve my travel photography, and I’m so happy to have you along for the ride.
I thought I’d put together a post with the five most popular shots I’ve posted in the short time I’ve been online. I considered picking my personal favourites, but being incredibly indecisive and self-critical I may well have reached 200 posts before making any final decision on those! Clicking the headers will take you to the original posts if you’re interested to read more.
This shot was the inspiration behind my Freshly Pressed post so it’s no surprise it’s the most liked shot I’ve published. It’s also probably the image I worked hardest on composition wise, so I’m pretty happy it’s sitting at number one.
Hanging on our living room wall in Geneva, this has always been one of my personal favourites. Believe it or not it’s also the least post-processed shot I’ve published online. It really was the most incredible sunset!
Watching the sun rise over the Andaman ocean whilst speed-boating toward the Phi Phi Islands of Thailand is undoubtedly one of my greatest travel memories. This image was pretty tricky due to the bumpy nature of the ride! But I kept on tweaking my camera settings and it paid off in the end.
A departure from my usual focus on landscapes, this image was heavily post-processed to convey the feeling of the Weekly Photo Challenge it was created to represent – Eerie. Bodie Ghost Town was a unique experience and one of the highlights of our trip to California.
Probably the most arty image I’ve published, the staircase of St Stephen’s Basilica in Budapest seemed to go on forever. I cropped this shot in an attempt to achieve the Golden Spiral in its composition, which is supposed to be visually appealing. I have to say I think it works!
