Magic Light

Filtered light throught the trees in the forest in Tharandt, Saxony, Germany

Tharandt, Germany, January 2017

One of the best lights for taking pictures is in frozen cold, but sunny winter days. In such days, with clear blue skies, yet loads of snow laying on the ground, the real beauty of winter, in all its splendor is revealed. All the usual shades of brownish and grey reveal that they are actually composed of myriad of other tones, from yellow to violet, only waiting for the gentle sun rays to put them in a better light.

The Gramophone in the Woods

Dry mushroom on a log covered in moss in the forest in Saxony, Germany

Laußnitzer Heide, Germany, October 2016

The nature created in the forest a gramophone out of an old tree log and a mushroom. It covered the log in moss like pure green velvet, to make it look hip and posh. It gave the mushroom an intricate structure and wonderful velvety shades of black. I think at night it plays loud music at the fairies or witches parties.
