Sundays are always good

Keep it open ๐Ÿ™๐ŸŒฒ . . . Sundays are always good for recovering and looking back at some pictures from happy moments. When you're wandering in nature it's so much easier to feel your freedom. Our lives are packed with things to do, timetables and random chaos. To me, spending time in nature is the most therapeutic way to get back smiling ๐Ÿ˜Š . . . ๐Ÿ‘‰ ๐Ÿ“ท 29 mm F 5.0 1/200 Iso 100 photography photography theplanet

Silver

Reality can be dreamy as well ๐ŸŒณ๐Ÿƒ big . . . Silver birch trees glowing in the late noon's light while layers of grass bend under the rainy breeze. The stormy clouds in the background rolled in a few minutes later. Sometimes the best composition is the most simple one. Everything is in its own place, you just have to take that shot. The calm before the storm is something you can feel deeply, make sure to enjoy those elusive moments. . . . ๐Ÿ‘‰ ๐Ÿ“ท 41 mm F 6.3 1/100 Iso 100 thursday photography

Shaped by wind, water and time, it looked like a living sculpture, similar to a resting animal. Those unique, unpredictable details are what I look for when I'm walking with my camera.

Warm colours

Visual from a lost kingdom ๐Ÿฐ๐Ÿ” . . . Warm colours are giving way to colder ones and moody skies are bringing the first snow up in the mountains. It's a magical period of the year, and this castle looked freezed in time. It looks perfectly still while the season of the warm, vibrant leaves flows away and landscape in background turns white. Could you say this picture was made yesterday? To me, it was like a jump backwards in history ๐Ÿ”™โณ . . . ๐Ÿ‘‰ ๐Ÿ“ท 50 mm F 11 1/160 Iso 100 photography 500contest grams

Wanderers spotted by the autumn light ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚ . . . This picture was taken 10' far from my home in . I really enjoy autumn mood in photography (much more than in everyday life I guess) so I decided to bring my camera with me all the time while walking to the city or while having a stroll at the park. Definitely a rewarding choice as I managed to get a lot of shots which I couldn't get through my phone at all, like this one. When I looked back at the picture I loved to see how that little fella spotted me while I was taking it ๐Ÿ• . . . ๐Ÿ‘‰ ๐Ÿ“ท 50 mm F 13 1/20 Iso 250 photography

Misty detail of a golden birch wood ๐ŸŒณ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚ . . . I do believe that photography is all about light. Getting how it affects the large scale while you're into a wide scene and how it moves and bounces into a more complicated, narrow place to me is the most interesting thing about photography. This image comes from my last trip to , where we followed some deers into their habitat and found our way through this wonderful wood. There's something special deep in our hearts bonded with nature.

This wine season

Welcome to the Winelands ๐Ÿ‡๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚ . . . This wine season has been endangered by a dramatic drought which is still threatening rural areas and every kind of field all around Italy. Nevertheless people haven't stopped fighting for what they built in the hills. These vineyards and their owners suffered, but managed to get to the finish line of this season. Grapes had been harvested and wine will be drink, once again ๐Ÿท . . . ๐Ÿ‘‰ ๐Ÿ“ท 29 mm F 11 1/125 Iso 100

Moody tones around the hills ๐Ÿ‡๐Ÿ‚ . . . To me photography is often a way to dig deeper into my surroundings. I've been up in those hills many times, but yesterday was the first time I brought my camera with me. I enjoyed this place even more, as I was pushed to find the best way to capture this peaceful place.
