A Moment of Silence / Trenutek tišine

Category : Black & White, Infrared, Landscape · by Feb 8th, 2016

Yesterday was mostly grey and rainy with some wind and occasioal sun shining through. Right after lunch it got a bit dark and I decided it is a good time to go out and do some landscape photos. I had a pretty strong idea about what shot I want to do, but didn’t really know what conditions await for me and wether I will find the right spot or not before it gets dark. I saw these wind turbines on the top of the hill with a dark front approaching. With just minutes to spare, I rushed to a side road and was lucky enough to find a location. Probably even the best one around. I managed to get a shot which is pretty much what I had in mind for it. It was really amazing, because just before it started raining, the wind stopped and the turbines slowed down for a brief moment. The landscape went silent for brief a moment…

Cel včerajšnji dan je deževalo. Bilo je tudi vetrovno z občasnimi žarki sonca. Po kosilu se je precej stemnilo, zato sem se odločil narediti nekaj krajinskih fotografij.  Imel sem precej jasno idejo kaj hočem narediti, nisem pa vedel kakšne pogoje bom imel in ali bom našel lokacijo pred temo. Med vožnjo sem na vrhu hriba opazil te štiri vetrnice in sklenil poskusiti priti bliže in najti dober pogled na njih. Zavil sem na stransko cesto, po kakšnem kilometru se mi je odprl pogled in zdrvel sem iz avta, postavil stojalo in začel fotografirati. Vedel sem, da nimam veliko časa. Naredil sem fotografijo, točno tako, kot sem si jo doma zamislil! Bilo pa je neverjetno, saj se je v trenutku pred dežjem veter umiril, vetrnice pa upočasnile. Pokrajina je za kratek trenutek povsem utihnila…

I brought along my IR converted camera too and managed to do a rainy infrared shot as well, you know, for the instagram feed. I just wanted to see what comes out on a rainy winter day. The outcome is totally different. It is no lie, I prefer the upper one, but I really find it interesting how different this landscape looks above 830 nm wavelength.

S seboj sem vzel tudi IR fotoaparat, s katerim sem uspel narediti eno deževno infrardečo fotografijo. Saj veste, za moj instagram, da vidim, kaj nastane pozimi v dežju v infrardečem spektru. Rezultat je precej drugačen od zgornje fotografije. Sicer mi je zgornja bolj všeč, vseeno pa mi je zanimivo videti, kako drugače zgleda ta ista pokrajina v valovni dolžini nad 830 nm.

It started raining really hard, so I packed my gear and decided to head home, but the photographer’s curiosity got me to take the long road back. You know, just to see what lies ahead behind the next turn. A few minutes later, I just got to the other side of this hill when the rain stopped and the skies opened up.  I am not really a sunset type of photographer, although I enjoy watching them in person. But this one was really amazing! Especially after making the above shots just a couple of minutes earlier…

Prišel je precej močan dež, zato sem pospravil svojo opremo in se odpravil proti domu, a fotografska radovednost me je odpeljala po dolgi poti. Saj veste, kaj pa če se za naslednjim ovinkom še kaj skriva?! Nekaj minut kasneje sem se pripeljal na drugo stran tega hriba, ko je dež ponehal, nebo pa se je odprlo. Čeprav zelo rad vidim lep sončni zahod, nisem ravno tip fotogafa, ki bi jih pretirano rad slikal. A ta me je pritegnil že kot kontrast zgornjim fotografijam, ki so bile narejene zgolj nekaj minut prej…

Wonderful landscapes, they look so different with the different light and angle, as if it were not the same hill. But the clouds are what make them fantastic, great captures!

    Thank you PK. I find it interesting how we percieve landscapes to be very static although they are changing every minute of the day. Light is a magnificent and versatile painter, istn’t it?

    Najlepša hvala za kompliment! Najlepše je, ko mi uspe vzdušje ujeti in ga skozi zajeto fotografijo prenesti naprej!
    lp, Luka
