Autumn photography

 Autumn is here!

The turning of the season is always a great opportunity to capture the change of the surroundings.

Autumn marks the transition from summer to winter.  One of its main features is the shedding of leaves from deciduous trees and plants. The  leaves are changing colors and become yellow, orange, red and brown.

Red, yellow, orange and brown  leaves are blending all together and create a colorful veil, which is embracing the earth and transforms the surroundings into a spectacular view.


Sunset silhouettes

I love sunsets. The sky and the sea are painted with such great colors and it is fairly called the golden hourIt is also known as “magic hour” but in photography, the first hour of light after sunrise, and the last hour of light before sunset, during which daylight is redder and softer, we prefer the term the golden hour.

In photography, a silhouette is defined as an outline that appears dark against a light background.  More specifically, it is where our subject is seen as a black shape without detail against a brighter background.  This effect can be achieved with any kind of bright light source, but the most commonly used is the sun around sunrise or sunset.


These past few days, I have been going for a walk along the sea shore during sunset and the view it’s just breathtaking!
