One morning me and my friend took a drive to a peninsula, our cameras with us. The day was sunny but cold. Before we noticed we had been taking photos for an hour and a half. Feet and hands quite cold already, we climbed up a hill and sat down on a huge rock to admire the view and drink warm tea. What a great way to spend a morning.

Have a wonderful week ahead everyone!

    What a great way to spend a day, doing what you like and enjoying a hot cup of tea- though my beverage of choice would be a coffee. And I can go for hours never actually feeling the cold when I am shooting. But when it is hot? I just want to stay indoors! Love the photos of this area! Great job, Elina!

    1. I agree a wonderful way to spend a day, and coffee would be a good choice also. πŸ™‚ I do get cold easily but strangely I didn’t notice my hands and feet starting to freeze until I stopped photographing for a while. I wouldn’t know about shooting in such heat as you have there in Las Vegas… but I think I’d prefer to stay indoors as well. Thank you for your kind words Emilio, have a great day! πŸ™‚

    What a perfect outing. The cold made the warm tea and friendship even better.
    Love that reflection (of course … I always love the reflections).
    Such a beautiful series!

  3. These are some great shots Elina! I have learned from these photos how much shallow DoF can greatly increase the impact of a photo. I do try to implement that a lot in my own photos but seeing others do it as well is inspirational and makes me want to go shoot. It also helps give me ideas on photos I can create with places that I am close to.

    I know what you mean about being about shooting in the cold for awhile before realizing it’s getting too cold. The only exception to that though is when it’s in the single digits or below zero. Then you wish it was a bit warmer so you could stay out a bit longer to get more shots. Next weekend I plan on getting my first winter shots of the year and it’ll be in the lower 20’s. I’m prepared for it though. πŸ™‚

    1. What a wonderful comment Justin, thank you! I think it’s so nice that we can be inspired by each others’ work. πŸ™‚

      I’m glad to hear you liked these photos and got some inspiration. Have fun with getting those first winter shots of the year, and keep warm! πŸ™‚
