Jet contrails in the evening




NIKON D40X (200mm, f/5.6, 1/80 sec, ISO200)

A curious effect of low horizon light in the evening and the time evolution of some contrail few minutes after the jets passed. Nice and poetic (and no, they are not chemtrails, which are just baloney)

Hoar frosted countryside

Coming back home and looking to the opposite side of the upcoming setting sun, I saw these hoar frosted trees and their background. The dark sky behind was too much appealing to just look and forget, so I quickly stopped (it was really cold) to take this shoot , an unperfect one, but -again- I liked too much the colors to avoid taking this one.

Eremo antenna towers

Late evening, exiting as last visitors of the Infini.To Astronomical Park, I discovered this contrast between the Eremo technological antenna towers and the Alps behind them in their dusk colors. I just played a little bit with the colors to get a more realistic contrast feeling between the clouds (still in the sun) and the ground (already in the dark). I think that the contrast between the “vertical modern” and the “horizontal natural” subjects is an interesting comparison.

Straight to the sky

Often we do not note how many things are just over our normal line of sight. If you try to leave the horizon out, just keeping what points directly to the sky, a different world appears. That’s what I’ve done with this picture, where what looks like envious signs of the human attempt to reach the sky remains in their inadequacy if compared with the target.
