Lonely Tree at Blue Bay on Crimea

Ukraine, Crimea, Black sea, Novyi Svet village, Blue Bay. (Yevgen Timashov | timashov.com)

December 2009, Novyi Svet village, Crimea, Ukraine. This is Blue Bay in Novyi Svet village. After morning shooting I decided to go to it’s another side and look for sunset spot. I noticed this tree from far away and instantly thought: “That’s the goods!”. I love unusual trees. They are hard pressed in the mountains. And their appearance sometimes more expressive than any other words.

Panorama of Longsheng Rice Terraces in China

June 2010. Longsheng rice terraces, Ping An Village, China. There are two main spots in Ping An’s rice terraces, but it was more interesting for me to find nearer viewpoints for “inside” photographs. One of such places was found by itself on the way to upper ground. Huge amount of lines within the frame make significant depth and you are instantly drew into the image.

Cloud and ship

December 2009, Ai-Petri Mountain, Crimea, Ukraine. This is classic example of absolutely spontaneous and unexpected shot. Firstly my attention was attracted by amusing cloud. I made a shot. And I’ve got an image with amusing cloud. After that a small ship came to the frame. I made a shot again. And I’ve got an image with story. I love unexpected photographs. By the way, this image take third place in “Landscape” nomination of Russian photo contest “Best Photographer 2010″. And the same image was selected among other works from National Geographic photo contest by “The Big Picture” website. I think this is my most well-known and recognizable photograph. For the present I hope.

Oak spider (Aculepeira ceropegia)

July 2010, Dzembronya village, Carpathian mountains, Ukraine. It was early foggy morning. There were great number of spider traps everywhere. The dew was falling that morning and webs were embroidered by beautiful water drops. Spiders sit inside their possessions immovably and only light wind slightly prevented focusing to right point.

Morning Fog in Yablunitsa Village, Ukraine

September 2009, Yablunitsa village, Carpathian mountains, Ukraine. Fog covered the scene, penetrated every hollow, cloaked in houses and trees. It was yet very dark. Sky barely started changing from black to pink. My eyes could see very little in this semidarkness, which was more “darkness” than “semi”. And only when I made first shot I gasped with surprise. It was just any first open spot but next 30 minutes I couldn’t leave it. I appreciated every minute of these conditions and I was afraid of going away because they could disappear at the same time.
