Hot July sunday at the Place-Moulin lake. Very quiet an with beautiful greenish color on the water too. Just some side detail to show a bit of depth to the image, but the water colour would have been enough anyway.
Taken from the Loccia lake, at the beginning of the Belvedere glacier in Macugnaga (NW Italy), during a day where the weather changed several times, showing the sinuosity of the various snow layers. Another image which is inspired by the Ansel Adams works (obviously).
I took this picture during an airshow. It’s a classical warbird (WW II era) carefully restored. It’s a classical picture, which I like because the wing has the same inclination as the far background clouds (the plane was turning around a pylon).
NIKON D40X (18mm, f/8, 1/250 sec, ISO100) Walking around the base of the castle of Les Baux de Provence (southern France)I saw this nice texture effect of the water flowing in the centuries on the vertical rocks, and I couldn’t resist to take a shoot. Despite to the apparencies, it’s not an HDR image.
NIKON D40X (170mm, f/5.6, 1/320 sec, ISO100) Some pink flamingos in Camargue (France). I was impressed by their ability to sleep on a single leg with their long neck so bend. In this season they’re not so pink, but the wing underneath is much more colored.
NIKON 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.
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.
