This coming weekend I will heading to Turin, Italy (you might recognize it as Torino, where the Winter Olympics were held back in 2006). I am pretty excited to ge out of Naples for a weekend, and always enjoy exploring and photographing a new place! Stay tuned for a new adventure and photos!
Today I wanted to share a photo that may be a bit cliché, but one I enjoy nonetheless. While trekking up Monte Terminio in Avellino this past weekend, I looked up to see this impressive scene. The sky was full of fragmented clouds, providing a wonderful backdrop to the scraggly branches.
To make an image like this, you would need a fairly open lens, something in the 10-20mm range. A fisheye would work terrifically. I used my 14-24mm Wine Angle to get all of the branches to look like a natural roof. Now obviously the branches are not horizontally covering me, but are all straight. The wide focal length bends them inward to give the trees this appearance. I always enjoy seeing these types of natural abstracts.
