Oriol Alamany - SPIDER ON RED
An splash of color after so many white pictures in the recent days. In the last year I have been working in a book about Collserola Natural Park. In this mediterranean sierra there is one very curious place with a small pond filled by the ferruginous water coming from an old mine. A very cloudy afternoon I was taking pictures of that pond. Shot after shot I started to work more an more close to the reeds, with the water appearing only as a red out of focus background. The polarizer filter make the red color gorgeous. Suddenly I discovered this tiny spider, the subject I needed to put a point of interest in the composition. A few shots later a big rainstorm fall over me and my camera!
