450 – Freezing

I’m back to Vienna, it’s ghastly late, let’s keep it short 🙂

This image, like most images lately, was shot with the Sigma 70/2.8 Macro, and if you still need evidence that this lens can be fine for landscapes, then I can deliver more. I shot this particular image down in the valley at the storage lake, just some seconds before the sun vanished behind the trees.

The Song of the Day is “Freezing“. Lyrics by Suzanne Vega, music by Philip Glass, the beautiful voice by Linda Ronstadt. It’s from the 1990 album “Songs from Liquid Days“. We already had the title song in “209 – Liquid Days“. Hear “Freezing” on YouTube.

  1. very harmonious. I love the curves flowing gently, the small patch of direct golden reflection of the mountain and the larger, soft indirect reflection of the sun.

    Really excellent.

  2. Sometimes the whirled’s particularly mellow. I’m sitting here lunching at The Lancaster Brewery, happily alone with a big Rueben sandwich, a glass of Arnold Palmer, and my laptop on this Indian Summer day. It’s all delicious and flavored by a talk-radio show peppering through my earpods. Hey, what a way to get away from the office and travel a quarter of the way around the globe.

    On my screen’s a (literally cool) S curve of what? Asphalt popping out of a semi frozen lake shore? Does the “semi” part of that mean that the Indians have also lugged some summer back to Austria? I’m particularly intrigued by the way you’ve managed to puddle the setting sun into both of the spoon cups of your S. And the cool blues of winter day slash through those puddles of gold almost as if they writhed into place while you stood and directed.

    Technically it’s a nifty interplay of shape and texture Andreas. Thoughtfully it’s a poster for a movie called, “Nostalgia” which balances the warm memories of an ending day with the surge of a frostily impending night.

    How often your images work on many levels. You’ve grown so comfortable with your style and machinery that we can look through as well as at much of what you do, enjoying not just what you take images of, but what you make images about.
