photography and digital art
That looks bitterly cold.
Well, it was high in the Caucasus – so it was pretty cold.
When I took the picture it was still okay – but later, when the rain came down it was pretty cold and wet.
Gorgeous little church, but it must miserable in winter.
Well, the nearest village (and we climbed up the hill for 2 hours to get to the church from there) is closed off from the rest of the country – so they must have enough provisions. (Well, if it is a hard winter there probably is a helicopter service or something like that.)
Definitely not the place where I would like to go in winter – I mean it was warm while the sun was shining – but later it got cloudy and rainy and there were only 5°C in May – so I can be pretty sure I wouldn’t survive a winter up there…
I really like this one. The light and dark, the clouds and mountains really go together. The church itself stands out so dramatically, and I love how the dark clouds seem to pull back from the top of the spire.
Thank you very much for the compliment.
It was really an experience climbing high above the clouds – and the lonely church on the mountain top makes for a very dramatic setting.
Wow that is hauntingly beautiful!
Really beautiful capture.
Great landscape and beautiful shot!
Thank you very much, Rafael.
Great image! Maybe a good spot for biking 🙂
Well, then you have to be very good – I barely managed to climb up the hill/mountain of foot.
But you can probably find some spots around the village which are better suited.
great image. nice sky and colors!!! well done
Thank you very much, Paulo.
This is great! I love the highlights in the foreground. that’s an interesting building. amazing shot
Thank you very much for the nice compliment.
spectacular shot!! did you tamper with this at all, or was it just glorious all by itself?? 🙂
It is a HDR – so the colours a bit stronger – but otherwise I didn’t do anything.
very cool…but what is an HDR?? high def…resolution?? do you have a special type of camera??
It means High Dynamic Rage. I usually take a picture three times – a regular one, a light one and a dark one and mix them together – that way the spectrum of the light is wider and one can use this to create various effects.
I do this with a regular camera.
Here also is the wiki definition.
thats so cool…but how do you go back and mix them when they are digital??? you’re blowing my mind!!! lol
Well, I do it with Photoshop, which has a HDR option – but there are also a lot of programs out there for HDR only.
You basically upload your pictures and then the program merges them to one. Later you can also adjust colours, saturation, etc.
very cool, thanks
Thank you for the compliment.
Surreal, love it 🙂
Great image. Tony
Thank you very much, Tony.
The picture makes me want to know more. Hope your having a great day…Hugs Paula xxxx
Well, you can probably find something about the Gergeti Trinity Church on the net – there also is a Wikipedia piece: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gergeti_Trinity_Church
Thanks for the compliment and have a fantastic day as well.
That’s great, thank you!! X
Thank you very much Paula.
Beautiful landscape picture. Awesome light!
Thank you again.
Someone needs to write a story about this beautiful capture!
Be my guest!
You are doing a great job here and I just want to say thank you for stopping by at my blog, really appreciate it.
Your very welcome – and thank you for the compliment as well.
Makes me want to go and climb the mountain myself. Fabulous shot!
Well, I did this – it is only 2-3 hours (from the nearest village) – but a bit steep, but you can manage it without being a professional climber.
…thanks for the compliment!
Sounds great to me, I’m guessing it was a worthwhile experience.
You’re welcome by the way!
Yes, it was a very worthwhile experience to climb up so high…
