Sandra Bartocha - Rose Hips


As usual I spent my days over the years at the island of Rügen with some friends. Last year (2010/2011) we were rewarded with tons of snow and ice. This year we had 8-10°C, rain, a little fog and dreary forests and landscapes scenes. First I was a little disappointed in the possibilties to create that great light classic shots of impressive winter landscapes … but soon I discovered that the beauty of photography lies excactly in these moments – absorbing emotions … and capturing simple scenes.

    A simple but powefull masterpiece! The red of the rose hips it is so vibrant that almost makes one forget oof the deep grey on the background, and that water drop, right on focus... it deserved an Haiku!...
