Wishes for 2014

These days, what can one wish for the new year? Well, that it is just as good (or bad) as the one that is finishing. I mean, we did manage through this one, didn’t we?
For what it’s worth, may the year that is coming be whatever we wish it to be.

Look over your shoulder

Quite often, when I am out and about to take a few shots of the sunset (or sunrise, for that matter) I end up missing great opportunities for some colourful photos because I forget to look behind my back. Facing west, obsessed with catching the full colour pallet of the sky, whilst trying to avoid burning part of the shot by the sun, I tend to forget to look around. This was not one of those cases, though.

Kick off

Today I am feeling bold. So... I am starting this web site and this blog as a way to share my passion for photography and, hopefully, to use it as a log for my evolution as a photographer. I have no idea whatsoever what this will turn out to be. So, bear with me...

Just after sunset on a late November day, facing NW, I mounted my tripod with the lowest point of view possible, just short of getting my shoes wet.
