Acid fluids

This (small) waterfall is dedicated to Mónica. This image is from our last vacations at Caviahue, a magical place with these black rocks! The water is acidified by volcanic fluids from Copahue volcano, the sulfuric smell is horrible but who cares, if you can have these views! :) Read More!

Dancing in the Dark

11comments
candle smokeThis image is dedicated to Victor, who asked for a dark shot... i think he mentioned he likes candle shots, so here you have my friend. This image is Much easier to obtain than this one...

Main tips to get this shot
1) Use a black fabric as backdrop (or something that doesn't refleclect light).
2) Focus (manually!) on the smoke.
3) Use an external light/flash located behind and at some side of the scene (avoiding entering light on your frame).
4) Try with different camera settings!

EXIF. ISO: 200, Exposure: 1/100 sec, Aperture: 5.6, Focal Length: 50mm, Flash Used: Yes. Post-processing: PS. Read More!

Countryside

8comments
campo“I roamed the countryside searching for answers to things I did not understand. Why thunder lasts longer than that which causes it, and why immediately on its creation the lightning becomes visible to the eye while thunder requires time to travel. How the various circles of water form around the spot which has been struck by a stone and why a bird sustains itself in the air. These questions and other strange phenomena engaged my thought throughout my life.”
Da Vinci, Leonardo

If you still have landscapes lake this around go there and enjoy it... while it lasts:

“Wildness and silence disappeared from the countryside, sweetness fell from the air, not because anyone wished them to vanish or fall but because throughways had to floor the meadows with cement to carry the automobiles which advancing technology produced.”

Plenty of people (at least 5 persons in last 2 weeks!) asked for Translation of my blog, so here you have: Automatic Translation by Google. Please don't click on the above flags to get your translation because this is just (part of) a screenshot! The actual Translation Flags are located on every page (at the very bottom), just above of my Copyright note (as you see it in the image at the top of this post).

Most of my posts are written in English because English is the "Universal Language" and I want to reach the whole world! ;) So why I have the US Flag as the 1st choice even when posts are written in English? Because sometimes comments are posted in Spanish, Portuguese or Italian... so clicking on the US flag will give you "full" English. :)

Note: even tags are translated so you can have a better idea about the image... you can even click on them and google will do its job! :)

So... very nice flags but where is the image of today? Wait! I will come up with something soon!

Porque a veces los comentarios se publican en español, portugués o italiano... Por lo tanto al hacer clic en la bandera de los EE.UU. obtendrá "pleno" Inglés. :)

Nota: las etiquetas son incluso traducidas para que pueda tener una mejor idea acerca de la imagen... Incluso se puede hacer clic en ellas y Google hará su trabajo! :) :),

Así que... banderas muy bonitas pero ¿dónde está la imagen de hoy? Espere! Ya vendré con algo pronto!

And now a Jawaharlal Nehru (Indian Prime Minister. 1889-1964) quote i like:

G-oldie Ponte Veccio

Ponte VeccioThe Ponte Vecchio (Italian for "Old Bridge") is a Medieval bridge over the Arno River, in Florence, Italy, noted for still having shops built along it, as was once common. Butchers initially occupied the shops; the present tenants are jewelers, art dealers and souvenir sellers... and since there are a lot of jewels on this bridge I've choosed this golden tone.
