Sundays, you know? This lazy feeling, and then on a day like this. According to the web cam on mount Dobratsch, even above the dense fog cover, it was cloudy and the light was flat. No reason to drive up the mountain, instead I have squeezed one more image out of yesterday’s collection.

The result is maybe not too bad, I have even made it another wallpaper in my small collection of downloadable wallpapers. The problem is, most of my images are composed for exactly the format that they are published in. In this case, with the trees that are cut off anyway, it was possible to produce wallpapers in the most common sizes, without really changing the character of the image.

It’s interesting: the wallpapers are the most popular content on this blog. Of course I have expected them to be popular, but the extent took me by surprise 😀

The Song of the Day is one more time “Postcards From Italy” from the fantastic 2006 Beirut album “Gulag Orkestar”. See the video on YouTube. It’s a somehow melancholic song and I like it greatly.

  1. Wonderful warm light playing off these trees.

  2. What a perfectly solid stand of the trees – ballet. Love the warm light on this scene! Sunny greetings

    • I’ve always wanted to make an image of these arrays of trees. They are very typical for northern Italy and can’t be found anywhere in Austria. Of course winter is a good time for that 🙂

  3. Just lovely, Andreas. The composition, the light, the post processing all add up to a very peaceful image. I love it!!

    • Thanks! Interestingly enough, while I took this, I had to think about your camera motion experiments. Funny that you comment on this one 🙂

  4. That warm side light with those trees is simply stunning. Well done.


  5. I’m never disppointed when I visit your blog…
    This winter harvest is very, very good.

  6. This is now my wallpaper of choice and everyone who has seen is just bowled over by it. Absolutely stunning!

  7. My wallpaper too! Absolutely great foto, Andreas!
