Early morning in Paris

It was on early September morning in Paris. As I climbed stairs on opposite site of Eiffel tower the Sun just raised and offered me a spectacular image. I just missed a cloud or two, but for that I ll have to go to Paris one more time.

Idrija in Unesco

Idrija a city where I used to work few years ago with its rich mercury mining heritage is Finlay included on UNESCO world heritage list.

The city is small and very interesting, and on every step reminds us on 500 years of mercury mining history. The mine is now closed, and most of it buildings are now a museum.

It offers a ton of sights to shoot, both outside and under ground.

 These are images I made in 3 visits of Idrija and surroundings.  Shooting in Anton's shaft was far the most interesting experience. Low and unpredictable light and very interesting underground scenery was really fun.

Move in few seconds of time

After making the two shots from previous posts i rushed to nearby location near church Saint Jerome which is about two minutes of driving away and still caught sun on late evening sky.

The wind made some nice effects on closest trees.  After making this shot the sun went behind clouds and most of dramatic light disappeared.

Switch the lense

If we wanto so change a shot we dont ned to mage a great change...

OK the shot in previous post was made with 14-24mm lens, but I hat do try something else so I switched to 50mm prime and repeat the shot. This is the result.

Red Devil Script

So you see, you don't need to do much to make another different image. Longer lens puts more stress on valley and hills in middle ground and less on sky background.

I havent stopped writting!

OK so I was a little bit down after a failed experience in shooting Venice in beginning of July but I am back.

This was really bad experience which showed me, that booking a Hotel and sleeping on site is the cheapest way to do shootings at dawn. Of course I am still waiting for bill for speeding on my way to Venice.

I was in so bad mood that I had to make some more shots on location nearby later in the afternoon that day. These shots made me feel a lot better.

Venice part 3

Canal Grande at sunrise.

So in early morning hours I rushed to the bridge at Academia, to shoot the church at the end of Canal Grnade. When I arrived on top of the bridge I set my tripod and start shooting... which turned out to be a mistake... Well I was lucky. Elder photographer was shooting a bit lower on the bridge. He called me down and made me realise, that the view is much more spectacular. Well we all know that first possible position is never the best. 

I took my camera and tripod lower and made this shot with view of canal opening into lagoon.

Immense opportunities of st. Marks place

As soon as I arrived to st. Marks place in venice I realised that there are dozen of photographers with their tripods. Actually the place is verry dirty with lots of trash around as cleaners stert to work at 5am and some trash must be phisically removed if you dont want to spend hours in photoshop.

Walking around st Marks square oppens opportuoiti for new great shot on every step.

Trip to Venice...

As I live only 110 miles away from Venice any trip there means only a day of preparation and night without sleep. As I haven't been there for quite a long time my next trip there is only a matter of time measured in weeks.
Red Devil Script


Last time I went there for shooting city not carnival was in late July 2011. I started at 1 am and arrived on Piazale Roma at 3:30 am. The city looks very hostile at night, many streets are very dark with almost no street lights.

And than I arrived to Canal Grande very close to main bridge Rialto. 
Red Devil Script


I headed straight to Piazza san Marco.

Red Devil Script

I heard that there are no people around at 4 am in Venice... well that is true... no people, only photographers. I must admit that I rarely see so many photographers with tripods....

Kasbah

Fortified villages with their magnificent views made me breathless. Of course there are many in Morocco, but Ait ben Haddou is the most beautiful and it is included in Unesco world heritage.
Many movies and other spots were made near this site.

Red Devil Script


That part of Morocco is like a movie studio outside as there are many places similar to some famous sites, but their only purpose is using to record movies. One such example is a Kasbah which is just 10 miles away from Ait ben Haddou.

 Both images were shot during golden hour, first just after sunrise and second just after sunset.

Again at alpine lake in northern Italy

Another shot from Predil lake, hour was still very early, but few steps in each direction opened new magnificent views of little lake!

Red Devil Script

Final results were worth of night without sleep, but there was still few hours of driving home, which were not the prettiest, as I was very tired. But at the end the final result counts.

Turn around

I was hoping to repeat the previous trip and to make some great HDRs, but shortly after start I realized that places I was headed to were in severe storms. I turned around and went to another location to mount Nanos where I had this spectacular view of st. Jerome church on the mountain and Vipava valley.

Some times it is good to give up first plans and use backup.

The trip

Sometimes the trip is the purpose.

Yesterday as weather was horrible I took the trip to a mountain plateau just to discover new spots worth of taking photos. 

I drove for about 4 hours and made a 100 miles lap, I wasn't very fast driver though. 

All the time there was a hard rain so I could not leave the car, but I spotted some great spots to photograph and I ll repeat the trip few times till the end of May, because those places were so beautiful you cant imagine. 

So scouting for places is also a part of photography, especially if you don't want to hang on some place waiting for golden hour or coming to a place too late.

Ancient bridge in Vipava

I really like bridges... of course only old and beautiful ones. Yesterday as I had few minutes of time I went to one that I saw last weekend and It impressed me.

For shots like this fishing boots will be necessary as we must go to middle of the river. And check the depth of water before plunging in.

I had some doubts about quality of image as river flow was pretty strong and tripod was shaking a bit, but image turned out very good and sharp, even though exposure times were long.

As I was waiting for streetlights to turn on some clouds slided over sky and made the shot even more interesting.

Romantic ruins on ancient salt pans

Ancient Salt pans in Sečovlje (eastern part of Slovenian coast) are really great area for good photography. At golden hours they turn into magical area of sky colors and reflections in canals.
