You should know me now, and you know I love waterfalls. And this time I went to a really far place to photograph a waterfall, to the other side of the island, near Cagliari. The trip has been very long, for my standard photography trips, and in order to turn up early, I set off at four o'clock in the morning. After three hours I've got there without a driving rest. But the scenery was worth it. Here I won't put the map, because you can read it in a Viewpointarticle.
But let's get started!!
The trail until the waterfall is quite easy, a bit slippery in some part, but not very dangerous, despite in the video I said the opposite
Anyway, let's continue with the diary. As I said the trail is easy, but I advise you to wear a couple of wellingtons because you need to cross the stream somewhere, so be careful. It takes about 10 minutes for getting there, so don't worry about carrying on a lot of stuff like food, water, surviving kit.... ehmmmm it doesn't need a surviving kit!!!
The day was pretty perfect: mild temperature, no wind, no hard light, no anyone!!! Yes, I was alone, fortunately, and I had the opportunity to admire the waterfall and the place without any trouble or human noise.
But now I quit speaking and I'll let speak the photos.
In these two pictures, I started with a straightforward view of the waterfall using the Sigma 14mm f/1.8, in order to capture the environment around the waterfall as well.
After I tried changing composition, but only a little bit. In fact, I moved only a few meters on the right side of the small lake below the waterfall, and I also took a photo of the trees in front of the waterfall.
In the last photo, I moved again on the right side, for capturing the waterfall between those two trees, and this is my favourite picture of the day. I like how the trees frame the waterfall with the left branch in the direction of the waterfall.
I could spend only a few hours in the place, then I had to get back home, but I was really happy of the short session because it was a long time that I didn't do anything. Now, at writing time I'm at home in lockdown, due to hour government. Yes, I know, it's for our safety, but I'm also thinking about the shops and the small company that are not able to reopen after the lockdown. We'll lose a lot of jobs, unfortunately...
As you know, there's my YouTube channel, so you can see the video, also here if you want. I'd be really glad if you subscribe in the channel, so I'll wait you.
In order to have also the old gallery ordinates by species, I've added the menu item "Galleries by species" under the item Gallery, that it's still working.
As always leave me a message if you find some issue, or to ask me something.
Finally Sony has revealed its new camera, and never will be the same story. With this new monster Sony has created a new generation of Alpha camera, doing a step further in the mirrorless camera.
As a wildlife photographer having a complete silent shutter capable of shooting 30fps is very fantastic and woould give me the opportunity to capture every single moment of an action, like a bird taking off or a landing on a perch.
But you need to be careful, because its price it's very "professional", and it won't be for everybody, not me at least and not for now, unfortunately.
