The photo of the week

Week after week I will try to catalog (or just insert) my favorite photo here, updating date and location and, if possible, some data on the used lens (for now I have two so I don't have many alternatives)


December 2019

With the arrival of cold and winter, very often in the morning we see images of this type ... but we do not always have time to photograph them

October 2019
This was perhaps the last trip before the arrival of winter cold ... On a mild late-October morning, near the Bratislava train station, these still semi-empty pedestrian bridges, transport people through the city.

A week later, when a few days of vacation allowed me to take some pictures around, I returned to the same place last week but a little higher up. It took a couple of kilometers and maybe different weather conditions to see this show!
This is proof that it is never taken for granted to return to the same place twice to take photographs.
And to think that I was about to go back thinking it was useless!

I didn't spend a month without taking pictures! Never! Simply, between one commitment and another there has not been much time to update this page.
Anyway. On this hot August weekend, I took the opportunity to go a few hours at 1000 meters of altitude during the sunset hours with my new Sigma lens (120-400mm).
Among the beautiful photos that I seem to have done, this is my favorite: it represents the mountain in its "essence". Moreover, the photo seems "clean" to me, without noise or defect.

It's been four days since I took this picture from the balcony on the 6th floor of the hotel room in Rhodes where I was staying.
Maybe I made more beautiful ones. Of photos. But this is my favorite.
For the time I waited for the sunset. For the time I waited for the ship to pass under the sun.
In short, a photo that took me time and patience but came as I wanted.

Frankfurt, Germany: it was difficult to choose one of the many photos of this German weekend even though, among those out of focus, the really obscene one and others, this is perhaps the one I like
The iron bridge over the river Main.

Via Emilia, Italy

Hours 9 pm  approx. Cars pass from a roundabout on Via Emilia, a historic street that crosses several cities in Northern Italy. I didn't use a tripod because a storm was coming and I didn't want to waste time mounting and reassembling the camera.

Cervia (RA), Italy

This is one of the river channels that carry water to the Adriatic Sea, crossing an incredible place, a protected area: The Saline of Cervia.
In this photo, modified with Photoshop Express, I tried to immortalize the path of the river along the fields and through the bodies of water.
Lens 75-300 mm and obviously my Canon

Monterenzio (BO), Italy:
I took this picture at the top of a hill a few minutes from home.
I liked the subject: the road that goes up to the house with the red roof in the middle of the meadows.
I used a 75-300mm lens and my Canon of course.
Then I retouched the photo a bit with Photoshop Express to make the roof stand out. The original meadows are green. The rest I believe is the same
