Stranded / Nasedla

Category : Black & White, Infrared, Landscape · (2) Comments · by Jul 4th, 2016

A boy is sitting on a beach of Valtaki with the wreck of a stranded cargo ship Dimitrios behind him. The story says the ship was smuggling cigarettes from Turkey to Italy and got caught by the authorities in 1981. They are supposed to have untied the ship to let the sea currents carry it to the shore. It is stranded on this sandy beach ever since. Just as sun has set behind the mountains, it lit up the hills across the bay behid the wreck making for a magnificent display… Valtaki, Peloponnese peninsula, Greece.
The story behind how I made this photo is also interesting. At first I was photographing long expositions in the visible spectrum. Air was really dense and I could barely see the hills behind the shipwreck. As the sun has set behind the hills, I have called it a day and went to a beach bar for a frappe (my newly discovered addiction). While waiting for my order, I pulled out my IR camera just to test the visibility in these conditions. The hills I could barely see with my eyes, were simply spectacular…

Fant sedi na plaži z nasedlo tovorno ladjo Dimitrios. Legenda pravi, da je ladja tihotapila cigarete iz Turčije v Italijo, pri čemer so jo prijele oblasti leta 1981.Ti naj bi jo ponoči odvezali in pustili, da jo morski tokovi odnesejo na obalo, kjer je končala svojo morsko pot.
Ravno, ko je sonce zahajalo za hrib, je osvetlilo hribovje na drugi strani zaliva in pričaralo čudovito vzdušje in predstavo… Valtaki, Peloponeški polotok, Grčija.
Zgodba o nastanku te fotografije je tudi zanimiva. Sprva sem v vidnem spektru delal dolge ekspozicije. V zraku je bilo veliko vlage, vidljivost pa zelo nizka. Hribovje za razbitino se je komaj kaj videlo, zato sem pospravil opremo in se odpravil do bara na plaži na frape, mojo najnovejšo odvisnost. Med čakanjem na pijačo, sem iz torbe potegnil IR aparat in sklenil preveriti vidljivost v infrardečem spektru. Hribovje, ki ga s prostim očesom skoraj da nisem več videl, je zasijalo v vsej svoji lepoti…
