The end of the month is here, some of my best photos are up on Stocksy United, so I tought about making a top 5 at the end of each month. So here are my top 5 favorite photos that have been accepted on Stocksy in January:
I am delighted that 9 new images are now part of the Stocksy collection:
As you can see the dominant theme is the winter, courtesy of the holiday season that is approaching, but this latest batch is sprinkled with some autumn photos and also some interesting experiments.
You can get them and many others exclusively on Stocksy
Although I usually like muted tones, earth colors and atmospheric landscapes, I also enjoy looking for special patches of color in nature, small details that can be easily omitted by the naked eye. I like searching for interesting colors and textures in nature and then capturing them with my macro lens. I won’t get too technical, I use a 90 mm macro lens that does it’s job quite well. Looking closely I can find subjects that evade my sight when I am out to find bigger landscapes.
The photo above was taken when I was exploring a very interesting and hidden valley, while resting for a couple of minutes. What caught my eye was the really thick spider web with sand grains in it, but I realized I was looking at something interesting when I spotted the colors in the background, so I spend some time trying to capture something unique, and I am really glad I did because this is one of the most appreciated abstract photos of mine. It manages to have a strange atmosphere even though the colors are happier than usual.
I think it’s the micro-cosmos that captivates me in these kinds of images. It’s all about scale. Our world is huge compared to the tiny micro world, but tiny when compared to the immensity of space, just a sand grain caught in the web of time and space. This is why I like these small worlds I encounter on my journeys.
