Landscape photography

Spiritual cleansing

Landscape Photography by Jack Dykinga.... or the definition of quality time: about 5 minutes standing before one of Dykinga's landscapes - I mean, being actually there - with Roger Water's "5:06AM (Every Strangers Eyes)" loud on your headphones. Spiritual cleansing.

A photographer's dull life - Part II

There are many photos that I see on the web that really make me envy the photographers who took them. I envy their talent, their skills and the opportunities they have to be there, on whichever magnificent beach, desert, mountain, jungle, river, and so on, where they captured their fantastic photos. It is a healthy form of envy, though, one that I try to turn into learning, one that keeps me dreaming about the day that I will (or would, by now...) have their opportunities, their talent and their skills. On Nature Photo Blog I find many photos that are truly inspiring and this photo by Luciano Gaudenzio is one of the countless examples I could choose in that blog. This is also one of those photos that makes me question whether someone who spends most of his day in front of his computer can expect to ever have a proper portfolio, as I did in my post “A photographer's dull life - Part I” on the blog page. I guess, however, that someone who will ever have a chance to have this kind of opportunities will always be someone who will do something about it, rather than whining on his blog over his dull life.
