So, Now that all my 2015 photos are already shared, I finally get to share some more recent ones with you ;). The winter is a pretty warm one this year. Ever since I started to realize the world around me, I was more and more happy about the place I live in. It’s in an altitude of about 400 meters and is just beneath one of the mid-height mountain ranges of our country. This means we have snow in winter and can go skiing. But we also have sub-tropical temperatures in summer and have a couple of lakes scattered around for swimming or we can take a mountain hike. As I say, just perfect.
As said, this winter is a VERY warm one! The skiing conditions are reeally bad…it was only about two weeks of perfect conditions and now all we have is heavy and wet technical snow. But this yo-yo weather gives me a quite frequent opportunity to take photos of dewdrops on the plants. For this job, I love my Tokina 75-260 f4.5 in macro mode. It focuses from about 40 cm, so it’s even comfortable (despite weighing a whopping kilogram!). The second one I use is Canon 35-105 f3.5 in macro. And I can’t forget the I think best combo I just love to use – couple of macro rings with Industar 28mm f2.8. To process the photos, I rely most on RawTherapee’s Wavelet decompose – this thing works wonders but it’s almost impossible for me to come up with some universal “default” setting. Also, I just love the film emulation made by Pat David (thanks Pat!).
Well, hare you go and have fun!
