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. 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.

  1. Perhaps I simply haven’t run across it, but I don’t remember seeing many photos that make use of a foreground blur as effectively as you have here. It suggests the movement of the people playing in the snow, but allowed their images to remain sharp — a neat trick!

  2. are they going to ski through those clouds? 🙂 i love it when the clouds kiss the ground… heaven hugging earth, it’s so beautiful… LOVE this pic

  3. I love this apparently endless landscape. It’s not very like the Pyrenees, but it reminds me of them, and of their wildness: and of people visiting to enjoy this wildness in their own way.

  4. What a wonderful image, Otto. It captures the overall beauty and thrill of being on the mountain and how cold it must feel but what I also love the lines. The parallels of the foreground with the ski lift and then the zig zags from front to back of the mountains. Gorgeous.

  5. I love the shadows against the white snow! It adds to the “feeling” of cold! It also reminds me not to be so afraid of shadows in photographs. They add to this composition!

  6. I have only been skiing twice…if you can call my crashes skiing. Your photo really brings the experience back to me.

  7. Great picture Otto thank you for sharing your work! You have such wonderful gifts – thank you for sharing both your ability to take wonderful pictures and also to write such thought-provoking articles. A rare gift indeed. This picture captures the cold and I don’t care how well you dress, cold is cold… brrrr LOL

  8. A beautiful confluence of blue and white that is composed both on the sky and on the ground. The lines and shades of the mountains make the picture complete!
    Have a nice weekend!
