KAP ....Kite Aerial Photography

Thankx 4 exploring my picture, # 370

a countryside just before nightfall

Some of you might have seen my last two shots from Rügen.... Those were from the same day like this one but during dawn. They were the typical planned shots, where you go scouting the day before, pic some nice place for the shoot and come back the next day with enough time for the light to show....

 

This one is the complete opposite. Not planned at all, nearly missed the light and the place was picked by pure chance... that's also why this is one of my favourites from my Rügen trip. We went to Kap Arkona with still more than one hour till sunset.. I'd thought we'd have enough time to do some scouting and would find some nice subjets to shoot. After all when you look for shots of Kap arkona you always get the same scene with some old ruin standing in the water, which looks quite nice.. So I thought well we'd give it a try.

 

I thought we'd arrive there drive right to the coast and just walk down the cliff path... but what we didn't know was, it's not allowed for cars to drive to the front where you just needed to walk down.. no during day there are busses running from the parking lot which is more than 2kilometers away.. but in the evening you just have to walk. Not to far you might think but with the magic hour light starting it feels like an eternity. When the sun came down under the clouds and such great rays where showing I got a little disheartened and even wanted to go back to the car and just let this sunset be... but we walked on and finally arrived at the top of the cliffs just to see, that the place I had intended to shoot, the ruin, was in complete shade... hmm damn it. So I gave up and we thought at least we'd explore the place a bit so without rush we walke a bit north. Where we were now standing in the trees there was nearly no light showing at all.. just thousands of mosquitos ;-)

 

Then coming out of some trees I couldn't believe the sky I was seein with the crimson sun a big disk above the horizon.. now I got excited for just 100 meters farther there was another way down the cliff to the coast so I gave it a run. Well the sun was gone when I was down but the light was even better and now comes the best part, you see it in the photo. That great rock-pool. I saw it, walked through the muck, put up my tripod and snapped the shots.. No thinking at all, I instantly knew how it should look and this is how it came out.

 

Hope you like it, because me and my tripod had to walk through slippery muck to get it. My hybrid shoos are still smelling a bit...

PS: I'll start with some photoshop tips here .. Every shot one tip. Some might know them but for some it might be something new. So here's a great tip for your workflow

 

Photoshop-Tip : When you are painting in masks or do other painting or erasing you often don't know which oppacity is the right one. So most of the time you select a low one and do repeated strokes to build up the oppacity. That's no bad way to do it .. But here's my approach ->

 

When not knowing what oppacity to paint with use 50 percent do your stroke and then hit SHIFT+CTRL+F and you'll get the fade slider. Then you use this slider to get the oppacity you want. A great way to speed up your workflow. I use it all the time when painting in my layer masks to reveal or hide some effects.

 

cheers

The Love Of a Family Is Life's Greatest Blessing.

Der am äußersten Ende des Kap Espichel eingepflanzte architektonische Komplex des sogenannten Heiligtums der Muttergottes von Stone Mua ist zweifellos der wichtigste und charakteristischste der Gemeinde. In dieser wertvollen Sammlung von Gebäuden, von der antiken Eremitage der Erinnerung bis zur Kirche aus dem 16. Jahrhundert, von den rustikalen Körpern der "Hostessen" bis hin zum Aquädukt und dem "Haus des Wassers", eine Einheit grafischer Werte, die uns die unterschiedlichen Stile vergessen ließ. Der Kult der Muttergottes vom Kap ist im Nebel der Zeit versunken, und es ist anzunehmen, dass das Kap Espichel vor seiner Verehrung - aus dem 15. Jahrhundert - ein Pilgerzentrum war.

Der heutige Kult geht auf das Jahr 1410 zurück, als das verehrte Bildnis der Muttergottes vom Kap am Ende von Cabo Espichel von zwei alten Männern aus Caparica und Alcabideche entdeckt wurde, die in zufälligen Träumen vom Himmel gewarnt worden wären. 1701 - Datum der Errichtung der heutigen Kirche - das Lager war umgeben von Häusern für die Pilger, die sich nicht an die besondere Ausrichtung hielten und die um den primitiven Tempel herum angeordnet waren. Ab 1715 zwang der große Zustrom von Tapiren zum Kap Häuser mit Häusern und Geschäften.

Die Bögen, die neben zwei Körpern verlaufen, können auf konstruktive Arrangements des gelehrten Profils zurückgreifen. Die Arbeit der Herbergen begann 1715, wurde aber nur zwischen 1745 und 1760 auf die heutigen Dimensionen erweitert. Die heutige Kirche stammt aus dem Jahr 1701 und ist die eigentliche Initiative von D. Pedro II. Beim Betreten des Tempels durch einen guten hölzernen Windschutz Brasiliens sehen wir das breite und gut proportionierte Kirchenschiff, das von einer Holzdecke mit einer Ölzusammensetzung bedeckt ist, die die Himmelfahrt der Jungfrau darstellt. Dies ist ein Werk des Malers Lourenço da Cunha . Mit Blick auf die Klippen, die sich am Ende des Kaps Espichel, im Westen der Kirche und der Gastgeber, erheben, befindet sich die Eremitage der Erinnerung, ein Templinho, der sich genau dort befindet, wo die Überlieferung der Erscheinung der Jungfrau geschenkt wurde.
