If you read this blog on a regular basis, you may have noticed that I’m fond of macro photography. The reason is that things do look different when you get very close, and I like to find new ways to see familiar objects or scenes. This is why I also love time lapse photography. Time lapse shows the world in a way you are not used to, and people haven’t been saturated with it yet.
Sunsets, on the other hand, have been shot over and over again, so you may wonder why there are sunset photos on my blog. The warm colours of sunset light and the nostalgia of a day gone by evoke strong emotions in me. So once in a while, I still like to take pictures of sunsets. Now if I’m going to take a sunset photograph, why not try something that has been done less often? For example, a close-up shot with the out of focus setting sun in the background, as in the above photograph taken during the winter in my hometown of Lausanne, Switzerland.
