I was lacking a place to share my photography wanderings.

I took a pretty close to total one. Sigma lens, no filters of any kind, just f22, 1/4000 shutter and 50 ISO to try and make it as little hurtful to the sensor as possible.

Plans are already in the works for me and mine to be in the path, near the middle of that map-- southern tip of Illinois.

Re: Sebastien's Photography Thread

Wow, I'd completely forgotten this thread even existed.

I spent two weeks in the Alps this summer, hiking and taking pictures along the way. Here's a first work, more should come.

Not kidding, is there somewhere I can get a nice high-res of The Wall? My triple monitor setup thanks you in advance.

Hiding In Plain Sight

 
https://drscdn.500px.org/photo/294998021/m%3D900/v2?user_id=1154575&webp=true&sig=d014a89676aa52f54b48e1f5989419823f0a72f61ed6a49b5a8f03137aeabf39

(that title made me think of Eddie; suddendoty.jpg)

There's a recurring theme in what I search for in photography, what we can't reach. This is a feeling I often get while contemplating high mountains. They always seem to me to be a universe of their own, hiding in their huge scale. It's very similar when I look at galaxies : they're finite objects we can more or less absorb with a single glimpse of the eye, but they hold billions of elements, maybe life, way beyond our grasp. Our imagination has the ability to make them infinite.

(this after-the-fact comment is actually the closest I've yet come to explaining such a feeling. I'm self-stealing it for my Facebook page.)

A sort of three-part texture study on the icy-rock mountains I keep bumping into in Northern Norway. Very ghostly, very Skyrim-like.

Throwback to a night out in the wild during a stay in Savoie in 2016, and a powerful sunset on the mountains looming over us. It took us a while to realize the biggest one in the distance (not pictured here) was Mont Blanc. We didn't recognize it from that unusual angle.

I actually processed that picture back in '16 but never published it. I gave it a finishing touch two days ago and sit for a while in front of it, trying to put into words how the scene made me feel. I was recalled of that feeling that the mountains were angry and spitting a fire before going to sleep. A "deafening silence" as I call it, followed by a quiet emptiness. It certainly was a memorable bivouac for us.
