The day before I attended the Festival of Colors in Spanish Fork, Utah. I was on a whole day photo walk with a bunch of awesome photographers, some of us ended up on Antelope Island, just as the sun was setting. And we were given an utter most epic sunset.
I made a lot of photos that day, but those I’ll post later on.
I walked a little further ahead, right past that tree you can see in the middle of the frame, when all of a sudden a thunder-storm came rolling in over the mountains, and a few seconds later it started pouring down.
I started running back to My car, where I thought I would find My girlfriend sitting nice and dry. When I got back there I was totally soaked, and so was she, course she had been out looking for me right when the rain started. We dumped our wet clothes in the trunk of the car, and drove all the way back to our hotel in our underwear.
My friend Brian convinced me that we should hike up this mountain on the other side of the fjord from where they live. He said we could do it in an hour, but I wasn’t so sure, I mean it was pretty high and steep.
We started to hike out around an hour before sunset, and he was right we did it in an hour, but I was almost dying of exhaustion and had a bad taste of blood in My mouth, when we got to the top, course it was a damn hard trip, I must admit I’m in no shape at all for hiking mountains, and on top of that I had to carry all My photo gear.
But man was it well worth it, I mean the view we had where just amazing.
Thanks for making me believe that I could make the hike, Buddy.
This is Lago di Carezza(Lake Carezza in English) in south Tyrol, where I spend almost 2 hours this summer, waiting for the lake to get nice and calm, so I could get the perfect reflection, and it just got better that the sun was setting at the same time, I could easily have spent few more hours here, but I had an almost 4 hour drive back to my hotel in Patsch, Austria.
Continued from yesterday.
So I ended up spend most of the day with Markus – that’s the name of the son – making photos of the hotel.
I was rather fun and a bit of a challenge to try to make those kind of commercial photos you see every, but still keep my own touch and style in there.
I really had a great time running around all over the place making photos I thought would make a great impression of the hotel.
The one above we made from the top of their barn , which lies right next to the hotel, in order to get up high enough we had to climb out onto the roof of the barn, which was quiet slippery, but we both made it – Markus with ease, because he is used to climbing mountains – out and back again without breaking anything.
I’ll finish up the story tomorrow.
