Rusty

An empty high mountain creek bed, where the remains of an old oil barrel (I suppose it is: I can’t be sure about what it was!) demonstrates what happens when laying on the bottom together with rolling stones and flowing water. The vivid rust color has a great contrast with the stone background, which seems a bit a lunar landscape.

Fishermen

Some fishermen were on the Ceresole Reale dam lake (yet quite empty in this season). I was fascinated by their positions and the few colors present: just the blue over the b/w. I had to wait until some cloud shadows came to help to avoid a too much white background. The result is an image with some fairy-tale setting.
