Fiery sunset at Nimfaio mountain, Greece | HDR made in Photomatix, by combining 7 shots -3,-2,-1,0,1,2,+3


Β  This may be most beautiful sunset i have ever witnessed πŸ™‚ It was a really cold day and after hiking for many hours, you could feel the chill in your bones as the daylight was slowly going away. We were ready to leave, already dreaming of our warm homes but at that very moment, a symphony ofΒ  golden colors flooded the sky and it’s incredible how the warmth of the sun managed to warm my heart…

Golden Banded Garden Spider (Banded Argiope)

Banded Argiope Spider 23.09.2013
Banded Argiope Spider | 23.09.2013

Another Banded Argiope spider that i found laying around at some blackberry bushes next to my house. This photo was taken at sundown so i used a ring flash to illuminate the spider. Again i used the trick of placing a black piece of paper behind the spider to cut out the annoying background and make the spider web more visible.

Canon 60D, Sigma AF 17-70mm f/2.8-4.5 DC macro HSM, Shutter speed: 1/200s, Aperture: f/8, Iso: 640

Β  It’s still windy here. Hence the shutter speed and the not so great depth of field. The spider it self doesn’t move if not poked, so i could have used a slower shutter speed and an aperture of f22+ to maybe get the web focused too. This is the last of the 6 spiders i had located around my house…and unfortunately i don’t think it will be here for much longer.
