Sandra Bartocha - Melancholy Winter Day


That shot was taken on New Year’s Day 2012. A rainy and stormy day. In the afternoon we went out in order to get some fresh air and we came across that beautiful birch with leaves from last year …
In the light of the fading day I managed to get a few shots of the leaves against a dark blue background.

    It is highly inspiring your capacity to mix banal words to produce poetry.
    I take not of your use of a 400mm for such a motive,

    Absolutely stunning. The drops seem like tiny crystals. I love the colours chosen and the way you've blurred certain parts of the photo. One of the favourite photos I've seen this month. It has some sort of magic.
    Kind regards from Slovenia
