"One night wandering in the Everglades..." since I heard this strophe from "Dance Of Death" by Iron Maiden I always desired to visit such magical place. When the road, casually, brought us in Everglades City (200 souls) we had the luck to assist to a incredible, unforgettable, terrific sunset like this. A thunderstorm was incoming, the clouds were getting heavier and heavier, a flock of birds was flying far from it, toward the setting sun. And we were there, wandering in the Everglades. Pure magic.
...Take me away... A minivan enjoys a sunset at Formentera in the Balearic Island. The scene inspired in me an idea of freedom and relax that I have not resisted to frame while thinking to the famous Doors song (Spanish Caravan).
This photo has been awarded as Photo of the day on Yahoo on 2 Feb 2014 and as Photo of the day on ViewBug on 21 Feb 2014.
Broadway, the 5th and the 6th Avenue (Avenue of the Americas) illuminated, like the arteries of a giant living being, and shot from the top of the Empire State Building after the sunset, during the blue hour, when the City begins to switch on his lights. The cars draw long trails on the camera film, the gold of the pinnacles shimmers as the sky turns to dark purple.. I can say I've traveled to NY to obtain exactly this photo for my collection.. The picture is composed of 5 long exposition HDR (from till 30secs) printed on a big surface reveals an incredible number of invisible small particulars. The native resolution is 34.1Mp (7148x4764) and can be printed without loosing details up to huge dimensions.
Almost all of these old acacias have more than one hundred year each, if summed all ages the Avenue counts more than 5000 years. The light of the sunset during the fall season, coming from the right gives to the place a magic mood.
A sailboat floats alone in front of a huge incoming tropical storm after the sunset in the blue hour in front of Isla Mujeres in Mexico. Everything assumes a magical light, the sensation of calm of this caribbean paradise lets the worries go away and nothing bad can happen today, even a storm will pass by.
A thunderstorm surprised me just few seconds after I finished to shooting the sunset in the Everglades, close to Everglades City. The lightnings were were so frequent, that I captured one of them freehand, no long exposition, no triggered shot. The event brought to my memory a sentence: "the concept of one shot, one photo."
This is my preferred interpretation of the famous monument. It will enter in my restricted collection of "my way" photos with New York, Rome, Paris, and some more. I can say this is another shot for which I have traveled till there to obtain it. The only unexpected thing were some works of building and restructuration, with a lot of machinery and a mess of mud and gates under the walls, so I had to cut them off from the framing. Soon, when the work will be over, I will go back and take this same photo with the new road and the water, for now, please enjoy this one. I think that even without the classic view from water level has his charm.
Some people, casting long shadows on the road, are waiting the sunset from one of the highest panoramic points in Formentera, from here it is possible to see the whole Island. On the right the small village of Es Calò.
The sun rays behind some red clouds, in a dramatic color explosion, over the white cliffs of Etretat, in Upper Normandy. Coming back from the shooting of a golden sunset scene over the small town the sky gifted us this stunning show. An really exclusive spectacle for us and for someone else who is enjoying it on the top of the cliffs.
