Category: Night Shot


Photo challenge brought to you by Frizztext

Yesterday was a very beautiful sunset at pitkajarvi. There was not wind what so ever and the water was so still that even my breath was a disturbance. The reflection was AWESOME!! It was simply the most serine and calming scene ever. Too bad these pictures don’t show it all though.

Other S entries here.

Pitkäjärvi in finnish language means long lake( translated directly) and it has a length of 4.9 km and a maximum width of approximately 850 meters. Here are some pictures of the lake remaining from last nights sunset shot. I think the lake deserves a separate post since it is the nearest to where I like and I took so many pics of it through the years.

 

Today’s post is a very short story of the sky between 8 pm and 10pm today and how the sunset went down( although no sun) . I was gonna tell the story but then I thought, its better that I show it. The pics below explain what happened.

And in conclusion, this harmony of colors in just 2 hours.

 

I have been experimenting with such technique of focusing out a beautiful background and the results are rather awesome. Even though,  the subject might not be beautiful or doesn’t make sense by it self, the background makes a huge difference on the image. May be that is why they say, when taking a picture, the things to consider according to their priority are: source of light, background and finally the subject. What is your take on this?

Reflections at night

 

All of these pictures were taken during the last summer and hope the lakes’ surface go back to their liquid form soon.
