Evening Landscape With River and A Hill

Recommended Posts

Two days ago we had a nice summer day and so was its evening. The vantage point was deep in the forest opposite the sight. We found a fine bench and picnic facilites even. So we enjoyd a few hours from golden light until dusk.

Iduna, this is beautiful and well worth the time that you put in waiting for the light. This landscape has such a European feeling, it could have

been taken nowhere else in the world. The roads crossing the river and curving around the hill add to the strength of the composition and the

colours are lovely, dark but glowing. The little temple-like building on the hill sits, perfectly balanced, against the lightest part of the sky and you

have managed to get some detail in the foreground trees....all great! Well done to you!

thanks always for your regular visits!




your nice comment makes me very happy and it is appreciated very much for it is so encouraging.

Interesting, that you recognized is a typical European. Perhaps the reason are those small dimensions where you have a combination of everything. This makes it difficult to isolate one particular feature. you have always and every where marks of human existence. Thee is no lonely forest without traces of the nearby living.

In those hours I shot quite a number of photos and used a ND filter with which I could balance the difference between bright and dark quite well. The glowing was so strong that without filter it would not have worked out satisfyingly.




thank you so much

      I have a trip planned for January 2020 to the Azores and Lisbon. I plan on bringing my M240 with 35 Cron, and 28 Ultron VM. I want to do some landscape and seascape images and would like to get a wide or ultra wide angle lens. I'm looking for suggestions or user experience on what is available. Right now my top choices are the Voigtlander 12mm f5.6 (which i can use on my Xpro2 as well) or Voigtlander 15mm f4.5 which will be cheaper but won't be useful on my crop sensor (I already have that focal length covered). 
      My other option would be the Leica 21mm f3.4 SEM... which I hear is an excellent lens but would require me to sell some gear fast to afford it. 
      Anyone have any other suggestions or can give me insight on their experience with the choices i have listed?
