The beginning of the summer and couple free days resulted to a short road trip to Croatia and Slovenia. The weather was nice, despite being a little too hot for the hiking trip we made along the coast of southern Istrija peninsula. The rocky coast, sunsets and relics of ancient Rome architecture provided plenty of opportunities for photography.
The autumn is my favourite time of the year. I like colorful forests with the typical smell of decaying foliage, misty mornings and first freeze. I’ve selected few of my autumn pictures for you, enjoy!
Forest paths deep in Moravian Karst are very colorful – but only for a few days in a year.
Lonely beech tree in the Highlands spruce forests shows some interesting contrasts in the late sun.
Little zooming and colorful maple leafs can produce some nice results.
Colorful small beech tree is like a bright lantern in the dark forest.
Bright yellow maple leafs against the dark water can make a nice background photo.
It really took me a while before I managed to get a decent autumnal forest photo like this.
I was very unsure about photographing the lunar eclipse. The only tele lens I have is cheap Tamron 70-300 with awful load of chromatic aberation. And it is not long enough. The afternoon was all cloudy but the sky cleared later in the evening. So I somehow managed to move myself outside into the damn cold night. The magnification was not great at all so I’ve decided to try a timelapse. The result is pretty ok for the first attempt of such task.
Some of the test shots before the timelapse.
And here we go – 29 minutes with 4 frames per minute, 25 fps video.
