By chance, when using my 24-70 zoom I have discovered a special effect that owes nothing to Lightroom. I used the trick a couple of times in the forest near Chaville. That was in Autumn. An then again in Fontainebleau at the height of Spring on a very hot day. The light is a lot more interesting... Continue Reading →
Today I finally managed to make time for posting my last and final picture for the Friday Photo Challenge. I must admit that I was pretty much dispirited when I spotted the news — somewhat belatedly — that the challenge was now over and that there would be no more postings. It's a bit sad...

I went through all my files of the past 6 years in... Continue Reading →
I discovered the Ariege in the 2000s. It's a nice place, in the middle of nowhere where not much happens. Apart from gadding about amongts the trees surrounded by beautiful mountains, not much unlikely happens. Fine, you might run into the odd bear (there are 40 of them now) but the buggers are rather afraid... Continue Reading →
