I’d like again to visit these sunny places, between two oceans… but this time, with Ani! :-)

Grass and Sun…

Sunday, July 19th, 2009

One of my favourite things to shoot, during Summer…

grass & sun

The photo is from July 13th, near Borissov’s Garden… we were on some sort of photowalk, but no shot of mine turned out to be good, with the exception of this one, maybe… :)

(Here’s a variant, with a bit of sharpening applied…)

European Green Lizard (Lacerta Viridis)

Friday, May 15th, 2009

On our short trip, last week-end, I took a shot of a very nice green-blue lizard.

An amazing green-blue lizard

Later, me and Ani discovered that actually this lizard is called European green lizard, and is also known as Lacerta viridis.

Its name contains only ‘green’, but I would have called it green-blue, as its back is really green, but its stomach has a very intensive blue color (as you can see from the photo, too).

So I decided to publish a few more shots of it:

A small trip to the East…

Thursday, May 14th, 2009

Last Saturday, we met my grand-pa for the first time. On Sunday, he turned 95! :-)

Here, I’d like to share a few shots from this trip (we traveled from Sofia around 200 km to the East to meet him):

I love the grass, the Sun, the rain, the colors… :-)

This is the European Peacock butterfly (Inachis io)

(I’d say that Canon S5 IS has a lot of downsides, but sometimes its macro mode is amazingly good!:-)

The shot is from April 4th this year, from near the town of Svoge.

Light Trails (experiment)

Thursday, April 16th, 2009

Light Trails (Canon S5 IS)

This is a photo experiment from a few days ago… It’s nothing spectacular (and with a Canon S5 IS this is almost the maximum you can achieve)… I added a bit of contrast and one effect (using Adobe Fireworks).

Still, I kinda like it. And sometimes I dream of the moment when I can make a photo using F 21 number and 2 minutes exposition time (at least)… :-)
