Why do we eat eggs at Easter?
Where does the tradition of eating eggs at Easter come from? We’re glad you asked…
My favorite places for landscape photography are mountains as they offer the right atmosphere for strong, emotional images. I visited the Koktebel region in Crimea.
I was walking in the Koktebel hills in Crimea when I saw this view. The fascinating peak in the background is called Otlu-Kaya (Holy Mountain) and, for me, this image really captures the spirit of Crimea.
It was in exactly such landscapes that ancient battles took place, and such sunsets that fell in mournful silence over the many battlefields of the peninsula. I love this place and enjoy the atmosphere conjured up by this image so much.
The photo of the Black Sea is a classic example of an absolutely spontaneous photo. My attention was attracted by the amusing cloud and I made a shot. Then the small ship came into the frame and I suddenly had an image with a story. I love such unexpected photographs.
For landscape photography, I use three lenses: Nikkor 16-35/4, Nikkor 50/1,8, Nikkor 80-200/2,8. I do not use wide angle primes because a zoom gives me more control.
If I need to make the background stronger, for example, I can change quickly zoom in a little and take one or two steps back without changing lenses. I also use a strong tripod which can resist winds and fast streams.
