Cheserys Lake by RobertoBertero Cheserys Lake by RobertoBertero

Yesterday I realized that I have, here and there in my hard disks, a few never posted shots depicting the area of Cheserys lakes, in the Aiguilles Rouges over Chamonix, right in front of his majesty the Mont Blanc! ...
well, no problem at all, since this utterly famous area isn't certainly waiting for my photographic contribution! However occasionally I'll post something, because I really love this place :-)

In this sunset shot you can see the Mont Blanc massif, from the Aiguille Verte to the Aiguille du Goûter, "unusually mirroring" into the rough waters of the alpine lake.
When water is moving fast it turns out "magic" if captured in a slightly long exposure.

I must say, and I am obviously speaking of personal taste, that I begin to find a little "too predictable" pictures with perfect reflections, or perhaps I've already taken too many of this kind... I don't know. In any case I am truly more interested in subliminal reflections, abstract, impressionist... maybe in a few months I'll change again my mind! who knows... I guess variety is important, change constantly, exploring new possibilities, and so on.

Ciao Roberto!

Location e luce ok, purtroppo l'acqua mossa ti ha rovinato una foto che altrimenti sarebbe stata ottima, secondo me.
Penso che personalmente vedendo lo specchio d'acqua così agitato avrei optato per un punto di ripresa diverso, ma qua entrano in gioco tanti se, tanti ma e tanti fattori soggettivi.

Ovviamente solo la mia opinione! ;)

Ciao Marco! figurati e grazie mille della tua opinione, è sempre bello sentire tutti i punti di vista!
e non lo dico come frase fatta eh :-)

Però io sto cercando altro... come ho scritto nella didascalia che accompagna questa foto, da un po' di tempo a questa parte i riflessi a specchio "perfetti" mi hanno un po' stancato... nel senso che li trovo molto più prevedibili... fanno molto cliché... forse ne ho già visti e fotografati troppi, non so, può essere... ma è un fatto oggettivo che "vedo sotto, al contrario, ciò che già vedo sopra" e non c'è molta varietà in tale dinamica...
mentre, invece, un riflesso "spazzolato" tipo questo lo ambisco molto di più, perché non raddoppia nulla, anzi aumenta il numero di elementi in gioco

al momento la vedo così, poi magari tra qualche mese chissà che riflessi andrò cercando! ahah

saluti cari!
