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. 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. Wow! what a stunning image. Such a spectacular scene and beautifully captured. The chill (or mist?) over the city in the valley lends a certain mystical quality. The contrast between the figure on the craggy mountain and the orderly arrangement of the modern city below is really quite extraordinary.

  2. At first glance, I thought this was a roiling ocean – a wildly, storm tossed sea. I zoomed in to see what the white boxes were in the foreground – lost cargo from a ship perhaps? I was dumbfounded to see the actual photo! Magnificent! And the treasure of a human, standing on the precipice, adds even more contemplation and perspective. Astounding image. Thanks Otto~

  3. I first saw this as a mountain-and-ocean scene only, with roiling sea fog atop the waves. What a surprise to see the city beneath that “ocean”: not 20,000 leagues beneath, perhaps, but far enough below to create an arresting image.

  4. This photo confuses me. Is it a scene of cold snow in the valley? No. A scene of smoke laying over the valley, I don’t think so. It’s really quite mystical. I can’t quite wrap my head around it. Love the poignancy of the figure in the foreground.

  5. Well, if it’s smog, it sure is pretty smog. 😉 The image is so incredibly well composed – everything has an air of being snug and settled into the contours of the land, an aspect I like a lot, and then you can see far off, where it’s just the land itself. Lovely.

  6. Wow! seems to be the common reaction here and I can’t think of a better reaction so, Wow! It makes you feel like the person has just painstakingly made a journey across the foreground which has the impression of vastness and desolateness. Now they have reached the end of their journey and are surveying the reward.
