A world of ash
Aceste 3 fotografii (dintre care una doar reprocesata) sunt de acum mai bine de 2 ani, din Islanda. Va amintiti norul acela de cenusa vulcanica ce a blocat intregul trafic aerian din Europa ? El e. Iar intregul peisaj ce se forma in urma lui era parca o serie de imagini din “the Road”. Goale, gri, lipsite de viata si de vizibilitate, lipsite de oxigen si lumina directa a soarelui. Ca un nor mare de ceata format din miliarde de granule de nisip fin, uscat, intepator la gust. Fiecare fotografie facuta in afara masinii a fost facuta in 5-10 secunde, rapid, fara respiratie si chiar si asa ajunsesem gri cu totul si cu narile si ochii plini de cenusa. 1 an dupa asta si obiectivele de la aparat inca nu au scapat de huruiala datorata prafului din ele.
Ashes to ashes
So the second day at the volcano (oh yeah, I have the habit of being non-coherent regarding date and posts order) I woke up in the car to a beautiful sunrise directly in the volcano cloud. The ground was shaking and I could hear the rumble of the mountain in the distance. The view was nothing short of amazing. Since the previous day I did get behind the mountain offroad and there was no lava or even steam coming from the crater I taught I’l follow the trail of ash that was heading south-east, towards the little town of Vik, 70km away. Vik is a beautiful town in the far south of the island that I have some photos from last time I was there (the ones with a black beach and big waves). Also a very nice place to try to spot the cute puffins that are so hard to find. And that was the plan to do when I get there, however things were a little differend from last time.Read More
Besides the new layout and functionality, upon requests I added a wallpapers category that you can access from the top menu. You can download them for the most common screen resolutions and use them for non commercial purposes, without removing the watermark. Here are the first 3, from Iceland:Read More
My flight got canceled yesterday. Maybe with all this talk about closing the airspace because of the volcanic ash cloud I should not have booked a flight that same day. So anyway, the name of the volcano kept ringing a bell. Then I realized that I have been there less than a year ago.Read More
Yet again Iceland, I’m starting to get lost myself among the huge pile of photos that collected through time and most of them from the past have not even been published, but I’m doing my best 🙂
Also I fixed the characters settings on the blog so romanian and also chinese characters appear correctly now. Because it seems that THIS post started a real fuzz and some people are just not used to see nudity, find it offensive. I think it’s just funny to see people denying their own nature and brainwashed by modern false moral and unnatural uprising. And I find the guy from Barcelona rather funny, and when I’l see him again I will make sure I make a longer and more in depth series of photos.
Oh well, at least it made my blog well known 😀
Before the never coming night
I like to use all kind of word plays related to the fact that in Iceland in summer the day lasts forever :).
ps: and hopefully the posting problem is fixed once and for all (seem that there was a second problem, one of the plugins tried to connect to an external database and it gave a ping timeout or something).
