Montserrat i el paller de tot l'any

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'.

Fire and the Pirinees

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.
