Great holmertz 2014-04-04 11:22

Hello Kasia,
I admire your stamina. 70 minutes, at least, in the same spot on a cold evening. That almost equals sleeping in the car to get a perfect shot of dawn. To me your misery was worth every moment, so I could enjoy these fabulous pictures. In spite of the faint light, soon to disappear altogether, every detail of the mountains and the woods are still clearly visible. Maybe the most fascinating details are the lights from all along the waterfront, like a string of shining pearls. These three pictures are really very very good.
Kind regards,
PS Thanks for your comments on the mysterious girl. That is one of the few pictures from so long ago that I clearly remember taking, like it was yesterday. She left a kind of scar in me that will never heal.

Default To holmertz: Hardship of photography

Hi Gert
Thank you for your very kind comment! :-)
I was there longer than 70 minutes - closer to 2 and 1/2 hours. I set up for a dusk shot and waited for the lights on the church to be switched on (I had made an observation earlier, in the morning, that the church is lit at night) when this amazing sunset started to develop - something I had not really hoped for on that overcast day.
Some call it commitment, some call it OCD... ;-) But I count those moments among the happiest of my life. I promise I have many more stories of photographer's hardship to tell. :-)
Have a nice day
