Splendor of Santorini #2

More photos from the streets of Oia. One thing I learned, albeit too late, is that the only way to get clear shot of the streets is to wake up early and get out before the sunrise while most of vacationers are still in their beds. Although village of Oia is known for its majestic sunsets, from photographer’s point of view it is better to leave your camera in a hotel room and book nice dinner table for that hour. Then once the sun is down and dinner is over it may be worth to stroll through the streets and get some evening dusk shots.

Aspen Glow XXL

Customer asked for 130″ wide print. So I had to break it into 3 panels. Had to say I was surprised how nice it turned out. Was somewhat a trick to route edges of 3 panels simultaneously but finally all worked out fine.



View of Manarola

Manarola  is a small town, a frazione of the comune (municipality) of Riomaggiore, in the province of La Spezia, Liguria, northern Italy. It is the second-smallest of the famous Cinque Terre towns frequented by tourists. Manarola may be the oldest of the towns in the Cinque Terre dating from 1338.

Icy Adventure

Its been a while since I was going out to look for new places to photograph. This time it turned out to be mostly about ice. Many times I felt regret that I didn’t bring any soda with me as I was near unique opportunity to have 10,000 year rocks in my drink.

Anyway. Here is the cave inside Athabasca glacier! Enjoy.

And this is Nick who was kind enough to give me a kick, that got me out of multi-month photographic coma and put me on a trail again. Thank you Nick!
