Rusty

DSC_3376NIKON D40X (36mm, f/14, 1/60 sec, ISO100)
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.

Naked trees and sky

Looking to the sky I saw this color contrast between the evening blue and the reddish clouds. I moved to a position where the winterly naked trees could be included in the image. They added a sort of silhouette and texture to the image, so to avoid  a picture quite similar to a flag reproduction. I see this image both graphic and abstract as well as a style research picture.
