Still life without woodpecker

Venue: Vitosha mountain, Sofia

Camera & Lens: Nikon D750, Nikkor 50 mm f/1.4 – here at aperture f/1.8 and shutter speed 1/3200s, ISO 100

Music: ERA – Ameno (

Two weeks ago I went on a small hike and a picnic with friends up on Vitosha mountain and of course I brought my camera with me. Here is the photo I like the most, and I feel it brings something new to this blog – it is actually the first photo here that shows no people or objects that are man-made. In the same time I think I managed to put a bit of a mystical and darker feel to it, showing the grass on focus lightened up and the darkened silhouette of the pine tree up the hill (which I obtained using some of the standard Photoshop preset filters). I am not really sure if the photo has the same feel to everyone, but I decided to call it like this for its abstract nature and the book I’m currently reading. Probably after processing this image I realized I also enjoy trying some more conceptual photos, and you’ll soon see plenty more photos with an abstract theme.
