There are certain things that can not be expressed and understood in words, but only with our heart.
Things that we must entrust to silence, to its poetry and to its quiet power of framing everything perfectly, even if only for a moment…
The same silence should be given to those moments spent in touch with nature.
Those precious moments that we can finally dedicate to ourselves when we are not too busy with work or when we are not too tired to be able to appreciate the beauty that
The same silence of the other day, where cold air and the mornings’ first light slowly revealed details of immense beauty, in that little portion of planet that I could see.
The same silence of the fog that surprised me with its gentle movement, to the point where I moved away from my viewfinder to give myself a few minutes to imprint in my memory the image of a perfect moment, where you can not hear anything other than your heart beating very strongly.
Everything really is more beautiful when it’s wrapped in a thin veil of fog.
Fog, it can transform ones surroundings into a quiet poem but it can be quite difficult to photograph.
Photos taken on foggy days can sometimes seem flat, there may be no shadows at all and colors may be weak, but these are just particular conditions that we need to understand and work with.
Here’s my suggestions for you:
Enjoy the silence, be patient, experiment different settings and make sure you have a tripod with you.
This time I used the MANFROTTO XPRO MONOPOD +, a new series of ultra compact monopods designed to give maximum performance in some classical genres of photography, such as travel or nature photography.
I can easily say that it was perfect and allowed me to capture images of a day that I will always carry in my heart.
