Soft…

So today I was in the forest with only a DSLR. Thanks to the high ISO used, I could afford to take photos even in places where some light would be useful. Pleasantly soft images were created, of course, thanks to the software. In the previous post, I presented what I didn’t like in the forest this morning. Now I present what I like in the forest, apart from the divine peace. Just a few ordinary edited photos😉🙃🙂📷

the ecstasy of gold

Even this forest will not be more than a meadow in a few months. The wood will be harvested and, as is our custom, sold far beyond our borders. For a few crumbs from the table….. the stumps like a cross foreach tree. Who is the good or the bad or the ugly? Are we going to plant a new forest on Mars if we can’t take care of the one that exists?

Cumulonimbus…

Local thunderstorms swept through our valley today. I couldn’t do it and on the way home I stopped and took a picture of a typical Cumulonimbus anvil. The opening image shows Cumulus congestus. When I took my meteorology exams a long time ago, for my pilot’s license, I had to know every type of cloud cover. Paragliding under Cumulus congestus or Cumulonimbus is extremely dangerous. Such a cloud sucks you in and there is not much chance of getting down healthy.

On the wall…

From time to time my wife wishes for some new wall decoration. So I took two pictures with a tea filter(Elementrix). When she returns from her trip on Wednesday, the approval process will begin… This year’s Perseids could not be photographed due to bad weather 😦

what you see is not what you see…

It is so. We like to be fooled by what we see. And I’m not even talking about how easily we get fooled by what we hear. The opening photo shows a rippled water surface in which treetops are reflected. The problem is that it is the roof of a car after a hailstorm 😁😁😁📷

so yesterday…

…I was finally able to start repairing the car. I ordered the necessary tools, a new windshield and turned the garden into a temporary car workshop. After removing the windshield, it started to rain. The bumblebees that made a nest under the old smokehouse disturbed me while I was working and posed on the blooms. I just had to pick up my camera…

As good as it gets…

On the way up the stairs to the photo chamber, I noticed a blue bucket on which the sun was shining through the skylight. I went back down to get my camera and took a picture with the exposure on the midle tone , another with the exposure on the brightest spot… and finally I switched the camera to BW mode because my world is black and white.

quick lesson…

last night my son showed me some photos on Instagram. He was very interested in how the photographer did it. So I showed him a very quick trick on how to achieve the same result. Of course, this is not a technique that can be used in documentary. It’s a technique for creative photographers. Feel free to cover the lens with your fingers, or use transparent adhesive tape, paper with several holes, grease the filter with vaseline (I use lard). The son was surprised how quickly the desired effect can be achieved without subsequent editing.Just be creative….😉📷🖼.

painted by the brain…

Our brain evaluates everything based on previous experiences. The eyes will give him some data and he will take care of the rest himself. That is why we experience, for example, déjà vu. In fact, we hardly read words letter by letter anymore. If you shuffle letters in the middle of a written word, the brain will eventually put this mixture together correctly very quickly. The brain is your only true friend… even if it sometimes doesn’t tell the truth😉😁📷 BauetifluTeusday for all🌞📷🧠
