Last Month’s Instagram

Once a month I will display one of my photos captured and/or processed with Instagram over the last month. 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. For more photos; visit

  1. Oh, dear….slippery rocks, an opening high up among the trees. Looks like a good story here, Otto. Wonderful photo.

  2. I like this one a lot, probably partly because it came as a surprise to what I expect from your work. It’s nice to give the brain a little surprise now and then. It’s beautifully crafted, sucked me right into the heart of the scene.

  3. I see some other people have shared my reaction – a bit of mystery, an opening for a story, the stone-paved platform as a stepping-off point for exploration.

  4. This is very intriguing, Otto. I don’t know if I’m looking at sunshine, fog, or perhaps something else in the atmosphere. It makes a very dramatic effect, open to interpretation. Very nice!

  5. A single word came to mind as soon as I looked at this: Transfiguration. Centuries of artists from Fra Angelico to Titian to Raphael have tried to convey the Biblical account of the Transfiguration of Christ on the mountain with their paintings, but I think your photo outshines them all.

  6. looks like the place they had to go look for the ring in Lord of the Rings lol kinda skeeeeery xoxoxoxoxoxoxox

  7. Great shot and I love the light on the stone you’ve captured. This is an image I wouldn’t mind framed and hanging on my lounge wall. It has so much atmosphere. 🙂

      1. I’ve been known to do some pretty dumb things. I will never forget how thrilled my friend and I were to be offered wine at the top of Half Dome by a young couple who wanted to congratulate two old dames for navigating up the chains. 😉 Now I try to carry my own supply of celebratory joy.

  8. I love this photograph, such mystery, such wonderful light and texture. I feel I have stepped out onto the over hang of an Italian mansion, perhaps deserted and occasionally haunted ! So many facets.
