Restless Spirits by Handie

Restless Spirits

by Handie in Winter

Our local cemetery. This morning was SO cold. The wind was very strong and it was gusting. It was uncomfortable as hell - but it was also kicking up the dusting of snow and giving me some great effects.

    This is a cemetery, there are dead. There is snow everywhere, it's so cold. But the sun light is so beautiful that the whole becomes immersive in something warming.
    A deep serenity.

    I knew this was your work before I saw your name! Yet again you have achieved that sense of quiet, serene peace and it evokes, in me, the feeling that I wouldn't mind sleeping here for eternity! Well done again.:)

      Thank you so much!! The morning I shot this was so cold and windy - yet it was magical at the same time with the wind and the light. Thank you for your comment - it means a great deal to me!

    Great effect indeed! Nice capture, I like the contrast of the warm sun and the cold surroundings.

    Thank you! This is not HDR - I've been wondering if I should try it that way. This was one of the first shoots I did when I got my camera and it's not even shot in RAW - so I don't know if I could get it any better than this. I guess I won't know until I try.....

    This is amazing Han. If it's hdr maybe you can still get the cloud on the overexposure part decently
