NIKON D40X (150mm, f/5.6, 1/402 sec, ISO100) The oblique light which graze the snow make it looking similar to velvet. Light and shadows give the idea of smooth waves. I was impressed by the poetry of the evening light, and I tried to capture it.
NIKON D40X (38mm, f/4.5, 1/40 sec, ISO100) Flying over the Alps, coming back home in the evening, I noticed the clouds below moved by strong winds in many waves, following the orography of the mountains. I found interesting this effect, especially if compared with the clear sky over them. I choose to use black and white because it stress the attention to the wave shapes.

Unlike its color version, this b/w image highlights the wave-like shape of the clouds, and so I prefer this version. At a closer look, the tiles on the roofs seem to align in waves too, thus blending the two parts of the image
That old piece of wood root on the beach was intriguing. I had just started to examinate it when I shoot this picture, where the sea waves looks to have so much respect for that root that they did not have the courage to touch it, and prefer to keep around.
