A storm was coming

Giumalau Mountains, SV
Giumalau Mountains, SV

I was somewhere, on a peak at 1858 meters altitude (around 6095 ft) and the scenery was just amazing for me.

You see, even if I live in a country which has many mountains (we have 14 peaks over 2500 meters, and about 240 peaks over 2000 meters ) until last year I climbed none. But there is enough time for anything.
The speed of the clouds was fantastic. It was like a dance, small and big clouds, turning all around. I didn’t know what to admire, when to take photos and when to watch.
Unfortunately, I didn’t climbed this mountain only by foot… someone took me and my colleagues and drove us for more than 90% of the way.
It wasn’t great to get there so fast and meet people so tired after climbing for many hours. But sometimes you have some chances and you must be grateful.

And another thing, after I returned to my room, I realized I had no moment for myself. All the time I was in  hurry, I was thinking what to capture with my small camera.

And there is a question for myself: when I should take photos and when I should not?
I am still searching an answer but if you have some advice, I would be more than thankful .

  1. It is important to take time to enjoy the views for their own sake. I would advise you to look around for one or two views which you think will make good images and concentrate on them for a short while. This should leave you time to enjoy yourself.

  2. Lovely photo, Cornel! Fantastic that you climbed a mountain, regardless of the method! Ah, when to take a photo and when not… you always think of the most difficult questions! If I am honest, I think you absorb more of the atmosphere of a place when you leave the camera at home. But for me, now, it would take a lot of self discipline to do that!

    1. Thank you!
      Indeed, we absorb more of the atmosphere of a place when we leave our cameras at home, but almost all the time I am thinking “Oh my God, how much I would like my friends/my relatives/ my colleagues/etc. to see this! I must take a photo of it!”And be sure I take more than just one photo.

  3. I actually take the opposite view. I find that bringing my camera causes me to look more intensely and “see” more. But that is a personal perspective – we are all different.
