A Room with a View

Category : Black & White, Landscape · No Comments · by Dec 9th, 2017

One of the biggest benefits of bicycle touring and camping in Scandinavia is being able to choose a private spot to spend a night almost anywhere you please. So, after about a 100 kilometres we pedalled on that day, we arrived to a beautiful tiny lake in Sweden. It had numerous fishing peers and also a wind shelter with a fire place where we set camp for the night. The photo was actually made from the location where our tent stood. It is nature in it’s purest form that is captured in this photo. Well, except for some artefacts of civilisation… It was a beautiful evening for sure.

Down by the Water

Category : Black & White, Landscape · No Comments · by Dec 5th, 2016

I like going to this place. It is calm and beautiful. The irony is, it is an industrial lake where they dig pebbles. 
This time around I visited it with a homemade lens that I got once in a trade deal on an antique market. It looks funny and is not particularly sharp, but I can easily say that it doesn’t lack character.

Orchard House / Hiša v sadovnjaku

Category : Black & White, Infrared, Landscape · No Comments · by Aug 28th, 2016

Wow, I can’t believe it has been so long since I have posted my last blog and I never have been so busy before. Last few months were really crazy exciting! I finally made the big step and made my long lasting dreams come true. I opened my own  photography business in Germany, where I’ve been living for over a year now. Well, I actually made two big steps, as I also changed my permanent address to Germany… Long live bureaucracy!  So from now on, I guess I’ll be geting my voting poll abroad.

Today I woke up early, went for an early morning ride with my bike and took my infrared camera along for a spin. It was refreshing to photograph something just for me, not for a client after a while… I drove past this amazing dream-like orchard and stopped there for a while to make a few photos. I am very pleased with the outcome.

Oh, I almost forgot to admit I got an instant-karma lesson today. I’ve picked a plum from the tree and ate it. Well, it was protein enriched, if you get what I mean. It’s a good thing I had a home made flap-jack bar with me to cover up the taste…

Huh, ne morem verjetni, da je že tako dolgo minilo, odkar sem zadnjič objavil nekaj na blogu. Zadnjih nekaj mesecev je bilo resnično razburljivih! Končno sem naredil velik korak v življenju in z odprtjem lastnega podjetja tu v Nemčiji uresničil svoje dolgoletne želje!  No, pravzaprav sem naredil dva velika koraka, saj sem bil nekako iz birokratskih razlogov prisiljen spremeniti tudi svoj stalni naslov. Izgleda, da bom od sedaj naprej svoj glas na volitvah oddajal preko pošte…

Kakorkoli, danes je bil lep dan. Zbudil sem se zjutraj, sedel na kolo in s seboj vzel svoj infrardeč aparat. Po dolgem času je prav pasalo fotografirati nekaj samo zame, za dušo. Sprazniti glavo in izostriti pogled. Peljal sem se mimo tega čudovitega sadovnjaka, kjer sem se ustavil za nekaj časa in naredil par posnetkov. Nekaj jih je prav čudovitih!

No, pa da ne pozabim, dobil sem tudi lekcijo instant karme. Iz sadovnjaka sem odtrgal eno zrelo slivo, ki pa je bila nekako obogatena z beljakovinami, če me razumete… Še dobro, da sem imel s seboj domačo energijsko ploščico, s katero sem si popravil okus…

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…

A Moment of Silence / Trenutek tišine

A Moment of Silence / Trenutek tišine

Yesterday was mostly grey and rainy with some wind and occasioal sun shining through. Right after lunch it got a bit…

Morning Greys / Jutranje sivine

Category : Black & White, Landscape, Nature · No Comments · by Jan 16th, 2016

I got up early this morning as the weather forecast said it is going to be snowing and I really wanted to do some winter photos. Well, there was definitely no snow to be seen anywhere, so I grabbed my infrared camera and decided to make a photo that at least looks like its winter.

Zjutraj sem prav zgodaj vstal, saj je vremenska napoved napovedovala sneg, jaz pa sem si resnično želel narediti eno zimsko fotografijo. No, snega vsekakor ni bilo nikjer, zato sem pograbil svoj infrardeč aparat in se odločil narediti fotografijo, ki vsaj izgleda kot zimska.
