Been recently on the road, travelling all the way from London to Granada. One of the nicest spots we stopped at was Mount Saint-Michel. Awarded as a UNESCO World Heritage site since long time ago this tiny little village lies on a tidal island about 1km off the North coast of Normandy.
Kind of overcrowded by tourists, the impressive views get a bit spoiled by the amount of cars parked at the end of the causeway connecting the island to mainland, but it remains an amazing view nonetheless.
The picture is a single exposure (handheld) hdr, mostly to enhance the texture as overall weather was kind of cloudy/diffuse light, so there wasn’t much need for the extended dynamic range.
This was another of the pics I took dunring the snow days before Christmas time in London. It was so cold outside that the city looked like a ghost town, even around usually crowded areas. The canals in the Docklands, by the Canary Wharf, were almost forzen and the snowed boats made a really nice visual impression.
Hope you like it!
Docklands near the Canary Wharf in London, during a snowy winter day.
During the last years prior to going digital I was shooting almost exclusively black and white film. For some reason, I have done it so much lately, so it was fun trying it for a little bit.
This picture was taken right after the big snow in London last Christmas, when the airports got closed and almost everyone tried to stay at home. I went for a walk from home to the almost empty Canary Wharf, it was wonderfully refreshing seeing all the normally crowded places completely empty. Somehow the black and white fitted well the mood of the day. Enjoy!
