My birthplace.


This last summer I went to my birthplace. It is a small village in the middle of nowhere, almost. Someone told me to visit a tree. A tree that is 4 or 5 kilometres from my family home. Apparently it is an interesting tree, a really old one. So one afternoon I went on walking to the place. I was on holidays, with nothing else to do, so it was a good plan, as good as any other. It was a really nice walk, the light and the weather was great. It takes almost an hour, depending on how fast you walk, or how distracted by the surroundings you are.

The warm colours of this pictures are mostly because I had a wrong white balance setting on my camera. Later I tried to fix it post process, something that is easy if you shoot in RAW. But at the end, I ended with some very similar result to the wrong one. Tweaking the white balance is an easy way to get interesting (or completely wrong) colours in your pictures. And in this case, I like the results.

Ps. A print from this gallery is available here

  1. I like them all, but the one with the shack (No 5, I think) comes through as my clear favourite and is already inspring thoughts for my current outline… Thanks so much.
