Misty Red by justeline Misty Red by justeline
Another photo that fills in a gap in *KirlianCamera’s visual diary of our holiday in The Northern part of Greece. Silent Luciditywas the sunset of Day One, this is the sunrise of the same day at Orestiada [link]

I think I’m starting to become infamous for my tendency to write way too much in the background description of my photos, so I’ll try to keep it short this time. This was our very first X-mas trip sunrise and the first time I fully realized what a pain in the @&$# cold could be while sitting there waiting for the right light. Oh, yes, I had been warned and thought I was really prepared. I was very uncomfortably bundled up in multiple layers, feeling like an onion. I even had leather fingerless gloves. FingerLESS is the key word here and that’s how I felt very soon. I had absolutely no command over my fingers, no sense of feeling whatsoever and that can be a real problem while trying to mount and unmount filters or handle your tripod. Hell, I was pretty sure my tongue would get stuck on the frigging thing had I any desire to lick it! Even more frustrating the fact that I was attempting for the first time to shoot landscape and not waterscape and I was feeling literally like a fish outside the water. Anyways, after much locating and relocating and after the shock of seeing my tripod and camera tripping over (saved it at the last instant :phew: ) I finally found a composition that included all the elements I wanted.

Contrast, levels and curves adjusted during RAW conversion in Nikon Capture NX2 .

Hope you enjoy your visit here!

I like the warm red colors and how they are contrasted by the leafless trees and barren fields. A very nice winter impression! :nod:

aww, so you've been here! I'm so glad you liked it Helen, hope you'll be able to visit Greece again, there are lots of lovely places to see here.
I've only been to London about 10 years ago (wasn't into photography back then) for educational purposed and totally loved it and I was very lucky with the weather too. Stayed there for a whole month in July and there was not even one rainy day! :hug:

Thank you so much Drew! You're right, it's one of my favorite shots! I think it kind of disappointed the waterscapes fans but I'm always so happy whenever I have the chance to try my hand at slightly different things!
Really glad you like it my friend! :hug:

It shouldn't matter if it doesn't please the crowd, as long as your happy with it then that's all that matters. That's how I feel about most of my works anyway. Keep on shooting :)

I'm so glad (and a little ashamed for myself) you came to realize this truth so quickly Drew!
it took me so much more. :blushes:
I guess it's a question of self-confidence, I still have a long way to go concerning that aspect :hug:
