These are images from Saturday. In the morning I had a portrait session, and late in the afternoon, when I drove to the lake, I used the 70-300 to dive into another world.
This is not a long trip, only 20 minutes by car, and I guess over the years I have taken photographs all along the way, but our world really is fractal. Regardless of how close you have looked, there is always something closer.
Take those fields. They look unspectacular when you drive by, but when you lie on your belly, when you put your camera into manual focus mode, zoom out to 300 mm and slowly change focus from far to very near, when you do that, you see a constantly changing world.
In the last image I am back to the macroscopic, ending up seeing the landscape as an abstract composition of triangles.
For almost a day I have searched for a title and a Song of the Day, but nothing would fit. I finally gave up and so I ask you: What is it, the proper Song of the Day?
Edit: OK, “redskiesatnight” contributed the solution. The Song of the Day is “Fields of Gold” by Sting, but I felt compelled to add a touch of my own. I’ll propose the version by Sting together with Corsica’s “I Muvrini”, available on their 2005 album “A Strada“. See the video on YouTube. I’ve been three times on Corsica, and this island, not much bigger than Carinthia, not more then eight hours away from here, this island is paradise, or to say it in their toungue, “U Paradisu”. Corsu, sempre Corsu!
