In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: Shadow
Shadows in photography is one intriguing thing for sure… I love playing around with them, with the textures and shapes and filters of my camera. But because I keep taking loads of those pictures I’m going back a step and share a few very unimaginative landscape photographs with you. But I just remember hiking through the park as the sun was slowly setting, and not being able to stop trying out a few shots with my camera as the shadows kept changing and making new images all in all. The first shot intrigued me most – a strange pole sticking out of the lake, its reflection and shadow making the image even more strange… I hope you enjoy these nature shots as much as I enjoyed taking them.
Taken in Glenveagh National Park.
In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Early Bird.”
I’m not an early bird at all^^. I’m a night owl. I could stay up all night doing things. I feel more creative at night. You barely find me up and about in the early hours of the mornings 🙂 It is very, very seldomly that it happens. Only for special occasions, most of the time.
Like climbing Mount Sinai in Egypt to have a look at the sunrise. I cursed myself during most of the hike, repeatingly asking myself why on earth I would torture myself to do such a thing. My new hiking shoes were worn, but not worn for long enough, so I felt the blisters building up on my feet. But after all the effort and cursing, I was up on the top, happily awaiting the sunrise. And oh boy, what a sight, but specially – my camera-addicted heart skipped beats at the many beautiful sights to catch and behold forever.
Since I wasn’t able to participate on the last two Weekly Photo Challenges, I’ll share my three favourite shots of that early morning with you. I hope you enjoy them ❤
