Last Week’s Instagram

Once a week—or every so often—I will display one of my photos captured and/or processed with Instagram over the last week (this photo is actually more than a week old, but I haven’t posted any new material the last week). It’s a way for me to show photography that usually is quite different from my regular work. Except for the technical details beneath the pictures are displayed without any comments, hoping they will stand on their own. But I still very much appreciate any comments you may have.

Facts about the photo: The photo was taken with a Panasonic Lumix LX-100 with the lens set at 26.3 mm (the equivalent of a 58 mm for a full frame camera). Shutter speed: 1/500 of a second. Aperture: f/5.6. The photo was transferred to my cell phone and then processed with the Snapseed app with the Drama filter.

  1. Stunning image and lovely soft colour. Now that’s an image I’d like to hang on my wall (and I don’t say that often). Love the simplicity of the composition.

      1. I’ve wondered that myself. My joke is that “X marks the spot and someone’s keeping track of me!” LOL. I’ve seen several now on my vacation drives; a couple of which I have photographed. They simply don’t have the drama of your capture 🙂

  2. This is magic …. the view .. the colors … and the cloud formation. There is drama in the image … and there in calmness plus the beauty.

  3. I love your Instagram series, Otto! You’ve opened up new worl for me, too, as I’ve learned about apps from your posts. Being able to create “art” on the sidelines of baseball games between innings has brought me a lot of joy. 🙂 This particular image feels very transcendent with the composition of a small earth and a massive, dramatic sky. Gorgeous!

  4. I look at this phenomenal photograph and wonder how man thinks he rules over nature. The contrast of that tiny boat floating in a large body of water, framed by those majestic mountains, and then the clouds above?!! Need I say more?? 😉

  5. Truly a beautiful shot, Otto! I’ll not bore you by repeating what the others have said 😉

  6. I love what you have done with this photograph Otto, the results are amazing. I really love the mix of soft and hard hues. It’s very intriguing and lovely.

  7. The textures and layers in this photo are simply amazing, Otto. I’m amazed at how you’ve captured the far distance and still brought the sky so prominently forward. It’s a wonderful photo!
