Autumn Leaves and Fresh Air

I’ve talked about the drought that the country have suffered during the summer, which was very hot. But, luckily, autumn have brought some rain and fresh air. Time for a getaway to some nice woodland in northern Germany and trying to forget for some days the bad news we receive every day about the worldContinue reading “Autumn Leaves and Fresh Air”

The Party is Over

While summer is coming to a close, televisions and newspapers have reported about the drought that the country suffers. The woodlands are in a dreadful state, the trees died and the citizens have to save water. I wanted to say to summer goodbye and I visited the Kellerwald-Edersee National Park, in the middle of Germany.Continue reading “The Party is Over”

Days of Works and Books

I have a friend – a very good photographer – who used to make her own photo books. She bind the books with the Japanese and Leporello (often called concertina) binding. I was astonished with the results of her books. But I never had the patience to afford to do the job. And all atContinue reading “Days of Works and Books”

Has to Be a Photograph a Factual Rendition of Reality?

The judgement of whether a thing is a work of art is a simple one and can be answered unambiguously.

[…] What remains ambiguous and open to subjective judgement is not whetherContinue reading “Has to Be a Photograph a Factual Rendition of Reality?”

Noisy Society

In Germany there is always a road, a highway nearby, where cars and trucks come and go, or someone is working with a machine, or a plane crosses the sky… This days we are reaching high temperatures, the drought is a fact, and Coronavirus makes aContinue reading “Noisy Society”

Evolution of a Landscape

In mid-July, I visited the Lower Lusatia (Niederlausitz), a historical region stretching from the southeast of the German state of Brandenburg to the southwest of Lubusz Province in Poland. Lusatia provided much of the lignite, known as soft brown coal, that heated German homes and powered the country’s industrial rise. Lignite mining in Lusatia beganContinue reading “Evolution of a Landscape”

Do Trees Dream of Cleaner Soils, Water and Atmosphere?

One of the best things of landscape photography is that this craft allows a deeper look into the World around us. It is not only about aperture, shutter speed or composition rules. It is, as well, about, for example, Meteorology, Geography, and Biology. Working on my project Not Be Able to See the Trees forContinue reading “Do Trees Dream of Cleaner Soils, Water and Atmosphere?”

Getaway to the Red Cliffs

With the lockdown relaxing in Germany and other European countries, I decided to spend some days visiting a well-know Nature Conservation Area called Red Cliffs, in the basin of a tributary to the Rhine. The Red Cliffs are huge deposits of the reddish extrusive rock Rhyolite. The walk last around 3 hours, but taking picturesContinue reading “Getaway to the Red Cliffs”
