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.
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.
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.
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.
