The Waves of Fascination

Sometimes it happens just like that. You see the motive, and you get caught in action! Can't turn around, go away, you simply have to shoot, your attention is caught! Latest addition to my Water series is a single photo of a sea wave, splashing right in front of my camera, just a few feet away! I felt like watching the first few seconds of creation of the Universe!

Welcome to my world of photography!

For more than four decades this amazing kind of culture was and still is my favorite way of expressing my attitude and my feelings! Times have been changing, technologies too. Digital eventually surpassed analog, but my passion remained the same!

So, let me take you to a walk through my world of light, where you can visit different places and people. 

I am certain more than ever that the images captured and presented here express

The Light Coming Straight From My Heart!

The photo above:  Christmas 2009 at Bajer Lake on the southern edge of Osijek, the capital of region Slavonija in Croatia. There was unusual warm weather, 22 degrees C, so I went for a "desert style" photo of this sunset.
Canon 350D, Canon EF 90-300 lens, set to full 300 mm, and aperture wide open at 4.0

The photo left: 

Zagreb, Croatia, June 2009, sky phenomenon above downtown area.
