The shadow of the day

    Newer Older

    Había algún tempo que quería ter pasado polo mosteiro de Santa Catalina, e por fin puiden entrar. A falta de luz (abre polas tardes de 6 a 8 en outono) propia desta época fixo que as fotos quedasen un tanto frías para o meu gusto ou, mellor dito, para a miña intención.

    ...Ata que baixando polo camiño de volta tiven que parar, deixa-lo coche na cuneta e sacar como 15 tomas distintas desta posta de sol.

    Non estou seguro de ter captado a beleza do momento, pero debo dicir que unha parella que baixaba andando cos fillos pequenos estaba flipando e dicindo que a alguén que coñecían lle gustaría moitísimo estar aló.

    E, bueh, cando ía marchar parou unha parella de xubilados a sacar fotos coa súa compacta. Supoño que é un deses momentos nos que merece a pena estar alí, custe o que custe. Está tal cual saíu da cámara... volvendo ás orixes ;-)

    --------------------------------------

    I wanted to pay a visit to the monastery of Santa Catalina (Saint Katherine... more or less), and I finally could get in. The lack of light (it opens from 6pm to 8pm in Autumn) proper of this time of the year made the pictures kind of cold to my likes or, better said, to my intention.

    ...Until I had to stop the car when I was coming back down the hill, leave the car aside the road and take about 15 different pictures of this sunset.

    I'm not quite sure to have captured the beauty of the moment, but I must say there was a couple walking down with their kids, amazed by this sunset and talking about someone they know and how much he (or was it a she?) would love to be there.

    And, well, when I was leaving the place, a retired couple stopped there to take pictures with their compact camera. I guess it's one of those moments worth to be there, whatever it takes. It's just as it came out of the camera... coming back to the origins ;-)

      Que ceo! Como me gusta o sol, e que característico da túa fotografía amigo! O sol buscando rendixas por onde escapar.

      >>> Herr Metz, piove_prsempre, Joost N., Valentini Andrea, ~ olivia ~, Peter Fields, .Meanderthal., Mauricio Sanchesco: Gracias! Thank you! Grace! Graciñas! Merci! Danke schön!

      Contremo... se o dis ti... terá que selo xD graciñas!

      Aguiso2009, o mérito é todo alleo ó fotógrafo, eu so pasaba por alí e axustei un pouco a cámara, case é accidental :D, gracias!

      Ramón... si, característico dalgunhas fotos miñas pero, mira por onde, igual que na primeira, neste caso tampouco buscaba ese efecto. A diferencia é que daquela vez saiu sen querer, e desta xa estaba alí. Gracias!

      Milutxo, moitas gracias... agás que se trata dunha posta de sol ;-)

      Fabulous photograph, and I really like the portrait format!

      masahiro miyasaka thank you :D

      AhnjF, thank you :D, I took several pictures, in both formats, and I have to say the portrait suits much better than the horizontal one.

      Boísima foto!. Sen dúbida mereceu a pena.

      Danielle thank you!

      Fernando gracias! e tanto que a mereceu. So o feito de asistir en persoa a unha posta de sol así xa a merece, e logo conseguir captala para os demáis (aínda que non acadase reflicti-la beleza do momento) fai que un quede a gusto :D
