Dramatic Skies

Dramatic Skies

This was during the same crossing as the previous post. The storm had passed and the wind had dies down again, but the skies were still dark and threatening. The clouds parted behind us and the sun came out illuminating this HUMBLE abode.
I think this is one of my favourite images of the trip taken with the newly released 12-50 mounted on the OM-D. Actualy, although I don't think much of this lens (there are better out there) I was thankful that I had the lens with me on this occasion. It is after all splash proof and it did come in handy mounted on the OM-D.

Dramatic Skies

Dramatic sky as we crossed Lake Garda. The reason I mentioned in an earlier post that Lake Garda was just like a small ocean to me is because it acts like a small ocean. We took a ferry around the lake, one that stops at different town along the coast. A great way to get around because the traffic is a nightmare. It's the fastest way to get to one town to the next. Now, it just happened that while we were on the ferry a storm blew up and believe me, I thought the ferry wasn't going to make it. Because of their flat bottoms the ferries don't normally run in bad weather but when your in the middle of a crossing, there's not much else you can do.
The image shows the sky as the storm passed. It was amazing how quickly it came, and it passed just as quickly. The spook was over in about 30 minutes, but it wasn't a pleasant 30 minutes.
 
At this spoint I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas
and a happy New Year to you and yours.
All the best for the coming year.

Lake Garda, Italy

Lake Garda, Italy

I was admiring the view of this village with my wife when all of a sudden the sun just broke through and illuminated the whole village front. Not the lake in front or the mountains behind the village, just the village front. The image above shows exactly what it looked like. I was just amazed, and my mind got to thinking had the town planners planned for this? Did they know that at a certain time of year the sun illuminated just that part of Lake Garda and built the village with that in mind? Honestly, if they did plan it, congratulations on a fine job; if they didn't plan it, a lot of luck came into play when someone built this village exactly where it stands today.

I think I would class this image as a bit of minimalist shot aswell. Not a lot there apart from that crazy looking cloud in the top left being highlighted. I just like these type of images, where less is more.

I got back to my minimalist photography while strolling along the shores of Lake Garda in Italy last September. This lake is so huge you really can't consider it a lake, it's like a small ocean to me. On one day it was quite calm as sunset was approaching and I saw that these two wooden pylons were being lit by the sun. You couldn't see the far shore for haze and there were no vessels out at the time. Perfect minimalist shot.
