Waiting for more

A taste of fall time on Mt Etna - 2nd November 2014

Another taste of fall time on mt Etna

I know way more captivating beauty could be found but I have to find occasion and being properly awake

Waiting…

meanwhile each time I have 20 free minutes I check what I have been able to collect so far and I try to figure out what I have to fix to get more

Experiments in the wood

November 11, 2014

Experiments in the wood - 26th October 2014

Wood,

almost totally new setting for me.

Still have to figure out how to behave,

I am not unhappy with results but I see there are a lot of new things to grasp

Poor whoever is around who will be carried to this (or similar) woods for pictures taking

So far the unfortunate friends/relatives and, of course, The Webmaster seemed to have enjoyed trip for beauty “hunting”

Lucky me!

🙂

Having a break

November 9, 2014

Lunch location - 26th October 2014

I had to keep my main computer off due to super bad weather in Sicily

Finally today I had time to use it for a few minutes so let’s check the “archive”  and what I find: my lunch location of 2 weeks ago

One of the new “favorite” point on mt Etna I discovered in the last weeks

Challenging fog

November 4, 2014

Fog challenge/Alternative restaurant - 2nd November 2014

Last Sunday we went for a little trip around Monti Sartorius and Rifugio Citelli area

My plan was to catch the “yellowing” trees

We left our hometown where sun was shining

The closer we got to the our destination

The more the sky was cloudy till

Till the moment we had to slow down for fog

Soon later we had to stop to switch on car fog light

It was new/unusual but yet normal, at the end we were on a mountain

Till the very last moment I hoped that fog went away

We reached our destination, I was a little upset for it was clear I was not going to take the pictures I wanted to take

What to do? Closing eyes? Going back home?

Nah, it’s a challenge and I have never took pictures in the fog in a wood.

We stopped by this half-dead birch tree for lunch.

Fog was moving faster than I could image,

the view changed continuously during the lunch break (and later as well)

Yes, I guess this is going to be one of my favorite “restaurants”

It felt magic.

The fog was challenging my eyes and I am glad I didn’t run away.

Scratching beauty

November 3, 2014

Scratching beauty - 2nd November 2014 (monti sartorius)

I didn’t know it was possible

I had a clue but I didn’t know it was possible to consider beautiful
and (unusually) elegant a dead, or looking dead, tree

Maybe is the fog,

something rare to find in  my hometown

 something easy to find on mt Etna

or maybe it was my mood too,

I do not know.

All I know that what I saw yesterday was
sad, disturbing and amazing all at the same time

Maybe I can call it “scratching beauty”

I just hope it’s not a “memento mori” message

😀

Pride?

November 2, 2014

On tip of a crater, fighting natural laws - 2nd November 2014

On the tip of a crater

Looking a weird creature, partially tree, partially stone… or maybe the stone is its treasure? A life that looks spent in constant fight with all natural laws

Therefore captiving

Where are the stairs?

November 1, 2014

Hole, tree in the cave - 18th October 2014 (grotta dei ladroni)

Look, there is light up there!

Do not waste time!

Look! There is a tree growing in the rock and the top of it is outside catching the light!

So what?

Have you ever seen a tree like that?

I don’t see why I should care of trees

Do you think there is a way to go up there?

Don’t be an idiot! Colors, light, beauty, they are NOT real!

But I can see all these 

Illusions!
Lies!
Go ahead walking in the cave

But it’s so dark in the cave, can’t you see?
Going ahead for what reason?
At the end of the cave there is an exit to go up there in the light?

No exit, just the cave, your world is this accept it, do not be a fool!

I doubt, I’ll keep looking for stairs to go up there, you stay here in darkness if you pleased

You are a loser!
You are nut!

Well…

The wrong way

October 30, 2014

along the wrong way - 26th October 2014

We were late and trying to leave the wood before it was totally dark

I took this picture but few minutes later we realised that we had been walking for 5-10 minutes along on the wrong path

Panic! Fear last for second but really, it had been an unpleasant feeling so confused about which is the path to get back to our cars, i knew direction but I couldn’t find the path

Ok, I was not alone, but walking in a wood when sun is gone is not a pleasant experience, it was getting a little too cold as well

Anyway, soon later we found the way back to our car and all was fine

Choosing the wrong path wasn’t a totally bad decision,
I mean, it’s thanks to the wrong decision that I found myself in the spot from where I took the above picture

but well, maybe next time giving up a picture chance and taking a wiser decision about “which is the path to follow” might be a nicer thing to do

🙂
