From my weekend in Binéfar.
The image is taken from top of a high defense tower. Lucky me it was with the last sun lights of the day.
As it is common practice in this blog the image has been craftly enhanced. In this case I've joined 2 jpeg images from the same RAW. The clowds are exposed at -0.8EV and the church at +0.5EV. The church looked foggy in contrast to the dark rich saturated sky so I had to darken it -6 points while increasing the contrast +12 points. This preserved a good dark color for the grass while enhancing the bright details of the church's roof and cementery's walls.
More details of it's location in the wikipedia

This summer Florence was full of Bengaly inmigrants selling this flying toys to the tourists. The toy consists on a 4 wing disc with a color led at each wing. The led's are located at different distances. They are powered at different rates depending on their location on the wing. The more outwards, that have to travel more, are powered the most. In this way at rotation they draw circles of constant light.

My brother saw the little caterpillar from the image below. When I went to his home during the weekend I could do the picture above. And finally when I call him the other day to check how the chrysalis was doing he told me that he let a red yellow butterfly out of the room without realizing that the cocoon was alredy empty.
It did the transformation in 9 days.
How they do it? Nature is amazing!

The girls found Tadpoles in a torrent four weeks ago. We could not resist the temptation to bring them home. We had been feeding them and see them transform onto frogs. Maybe they are toads?, I don't know, what do you think?
Now it¡s time to go back to the torrent. Bye bye tadpoles.
* as allways in this blog, don't asume the image comes straight from the camera

Early lights from this saturday morning.
Well... and a little bit of photoshop massage.
Katie is helping me to grow as a photographer, I take many good ideas from her blog (I will do one day my own version of the firecamp sparks under the stars). So I'm glad to explain what I modified here from my original picture:
1.- Increased the contrast of montserrat, the mountain at the end of the image and it's sourounding sky.
2.- Increase the lightnes of the whole mountain in the middle (paller de tot l'any) with all it's beautifull oak trees.
3.- Give light to the rocks in the middle term by increasing its saturation. This gives the sense that the sun is warming them. In fact the sun was doing so but at the capture of my picture a cloud decided to hide the sun, that means I'm not cheeting, I'm just reproducing artificially what I really saw.
4.- A little bit of 'sharpening'.

There is something magic on fire that atract us. If it's cold outside, you feel the warm radiation, you smell it's smoke and your eyes get lost in it's sparkles no one needs to tell you, you know that fire is magic.
The picture is from last spring. I hope this spring I can climb a mountain with the nice snow conditions as they were last year.

My father in law was challenging me about the low precision of my compact camera to capture a precise moment. Certainly the G10 it's not as fast as my 350 were the instant I push the button it takes the picture, but it's not as bad as my old S60. You can see it here were I captured the precise moment were I squize the peel of an orange into a candle.

This is my oficial certificate of ordination from the church of the latter-day dude.
Last saturday I saw the big levowsky and turned it to be a mistical revelation, a message from the universe to me.
After some web browsing and aknowledging the grate philosophers that are included in dudeism, like Lao Tzu, Kurt Vonnegut, Ghandi and Snoopy himself I decided to fully embrace this, my new religion.
Peace for all of you dudes,
And take it easy ;-)
