Twilight calm in the fjord.

Magenta gives way to blue at the day’s end in Reyðarfjörður in east Iceland.

In the third image, an incoming freight ship is guided into the harbour by a small tugboat (dráttarbátur in Icelandic).

    I like the third photograph. It maybe the ambient blue colour or the minimalism in the photograph, I am not sure what it is, but surely it has a calming effect. Very well done!ReplyCancel

Goa is the home of Shantadurga, a gentler, kinder aspect of the devi dear to Goan Hindus. Of the several beautiful temples dedicated to the goddess, the one in the village of Tivrem has the most captivating setting.

Nature in monochrome.

This is the inaugural post of a new series of Icelandic winter scenes that look like they could be recreated with charcoal strokes on an artists’ canvas. To abide by the spirit of that theme, the post-processing has been kept to a minimum.

All posts on this theme are collected here.

    While both photos are exceptional, I really enjoy your first photo and its resemblance to an etching. Minimalism is wonderful!ReplyCancel

Home delivery.

Fisherwomen making their daily rounds, bringing fresh catch of the day to your doorstep, was once an important feature of Goan life. Today it is an uncommon sight. These images are from 2007.
