Pont d’en Gil

Come, now there are few of Menorca (LOL) this today, like the other day, is accompanied by a timelapse made with SONY HDR AS100VR. It is a natural stone bridge that the waiter recommended at the Chinese we ate in front of the apartment.


EXIF:
  • Aperture: ƒ/4
  • Camera: Canon EOS 7D
  • Focal length: 12mm
  • ISO: 640
  • Location: 40° 0.681′ 0″ N 3° 47.7215′ 0″ E
  • Shutter speed: 160s

The truth is that we really did not know home.
The lighting of the bridge is of Augustus, and the front of me and the moon.

The video has some noise at the end (the little camera ISO is not so good, but it is not meant to night timelapse)

Hope you like it and i’m waiting your comments.

Macarelleta

We continue the trip to Menorca, and not just at night as man lives … here you have a panoramic Macarelleta Creek (the Macarella is right, but barely visible)

The truth is that these beaches have nothing to envy to the beaches of the islands of Thailand (and we caught closer)


EXIF:
  • Camera: Canon EOS 7D

Today’s entry is short, it’s late and I do not want to tire yourself. You know, come back soon and will not tell you.

The soundtrack on the other hand comes in triplicate:

The original version:

The cover of “The Lost Fingers” I met some cracks on the “Escépticos” ETB (too bad they do not make more chapters or more programs like this)

And the cover of the cover (as they say in gomaespuma “shit yourself little parrot”)

Who gives more?

Favàritx

This week ended yesterday we broke all records in my website and facebook, so first of all … THANK YOU, and then … another photo from the trip to Menorca … until you tell me that you are already bored in the comments;-)

It’s Favàritx Lighthouse, located north of the city of Mahon. I do not think that is the last photo that I put the web from that day… I have a few and this is only the first I’ve encountered (and still was not completely dark)


EXIF:
  • Camera: Canon EOS 7D
  • ISO: 100

As we arrived early and had time until nightfall, other than photos, we entertained doing a time lapse that I put below … do not miss my friend Augusto skating from the middle of the video, lol.

Until next time.

Photo contest Carlet 2014

Now that the awards are public I can make public the photos submitted to the contest. From here take the opportunity to offer my congratulations to the winners (and specially to the only girl which I do not remember the name, but she has made the picture that caught my attention, with the permission of the other winners)

Since photography is an art (or so they say) is also linked to subjectivity, so everyone has his own opinion and preferences.

I’ll start with a photo you already know, since I posted one of the same series some time ago:
This is a photo of the Hermitage of San Bernat (which is the only with heptagonal plant in Europe, shit yourself little parrot!)

EXIF:
  • Aperture: ƒ/5.6

  • Shutter speed: 178s

This is the train station of Carlet, which also has its charm within the FGV subway line 1:

I hope that instead of the awards that I didn’t won you leave a comment, no?

By the way, here also take the opportunity to offer my congratulations to the City of Carlet for the initiative and organizing the competition, because although I did not receive any prize all of us got a vest that I’m using a lot in the nights.

The tune of today’s is from PFC’s childrens singing a Bobby McFerrin song:

Cala Pregonda star trails

Not to relax, here I show you the star trail we did while dining in Cala Pregonda, a very cool beach that can only be reached by car if you have a lot of money. For the rest of us we had to walk about 25-30 minutes (with all the photographic equipment).

We were accompanied by Mayte’s cousin, Josep’s, who very kindly made us a guide but had to leave sooner than he wanted.

EXIF:
  • Aperture: ƒ/4

  • ISO: 400
  • Location: 40° 3.45′ 0″ N 4° 2.4333′ 0″ E
  • Shutter speed: 29s


At the weirdos (if not geeks) you will have recognized this beach because it appears on an album by Mike Oldfield called Incantations.

At the bottom right of the picture there’s a distant light, it is the beacon of Cavalry. You will have picture if all goes well.

The musical accompaniment if you please It’s by Mike Oldfield with the song “Islands” who plays Bonnie Tyler.

You know … see you soon;-)

Nati Lighthouse

Well, here is the second photo from Menorca (of many to come, I hope…)

This is the Nati Point lighthouse, you can see that if I do not say I’m in Menorca seems Mars or some distant planet. The truth is that as Adri told me, the landscape is very different from the southern part to the northern part of the island.


EXIF:
  • Camera: Canon EOS 7D
  • ISO: 320
  • Location: 40° 3.0167′ 0″ N 3° 49.4167′ 0″ E

The Nati Point, which is the name of the lighthouse, was at the end of a road that we had to reverse back over 500m in the car, an adventure.

Hope you like it.

Incidentally, the last post I do not recommended any song (I don’t know if you don’t like what I recommend) but here is the music recommendation today. It’s a song I knew by the Unplugged from Eric Clapton, it seems that has been writen by Jimmy Cox and here is played by a girl whose youtube channel I’ve recently signed:

“Nobody Knows You When You’re Down and Out” (Live) – Sara Niemietz, Snuffy Walden & Marty Schwartz

If you want to comment on the photo, or whether I should or not make music recommendations… here are the comments below;-)

Artrutx lighthouse

Uff how long, no? 6 months? Oh boy !!… had the desire, the photos … but things are happening, and this, like everything else, if you do not organize well, stays to the end that never comes.

I know I’ve said it before, but I’ll try to come more often here and leave you more photos. I know many who pass by here but don’t write any comments … if you let your comment it will encourage me to put more photos… lol

What you see here is a photo of the last photographic journey that I made, this time to Menorca, with friend Zuguzz (the frog don’t come). We went for 5 days and we really enjoyed it and did maaaaany photos. Now you will go see some.

Today I begin with the first session, the Artrutx lighthouse at the south of Ciutadella, near where we had the apartment. Hope you like it and you comment.

Timelapse Torre Aledua

Today I bring you a short little entry and easy to digest. They say a picture is worth a thousand words… and a video?

Yes, what I bring is a video I made ​​from 4 timelapses I did in two sessions in Aledua Tower (Llombai term). The result of one of them can be viewed in the previous post.

Hope you like:

Alèdua (control) Tower

After a few days dating and canceling the appointment at the last minute after a broken clutch and an awkward exit to the “pinets” finally we have the startrails that we wanted from Aledua Tower. As the title says, it seemed like an airport, with all this light up and down. The truth is that it is a place very close and we did not visit very often (we’ll repeat, and Sergio will have also his startrails).

As for making, it’s a startrails with 180 shots, for 30” and with 1” between shots (in one stripe plane can be seen):

  • Shutter speed: 29s

The later edition was with Lightroom, adjusting levels and temperature, and then tried stacking with Gimp, but change the layer to “lighten only” one by one was a bit tedious and by professional deformation I thought that someone would have already found with this problem, so I searched a bit and found this script (createStack.sh) that solved my problem, belongs to a post that you can see here on how to startrails with linux.

Some (the few who dare to comment on the blog), will have seen that now must login in order to comment. It was imperative, they were owning me with Spam, sorry.

As for the tune, and after a couple of scares we’ve had this week I want a song that always makes me go on, which for me is a celebration of life and we always have to play “kick and forth”

Altura

I continue pulling file because weather does not allow us to do what we want, when we want… lol. Let’s see if tomorrow could be. Led by José Manuel Pastor and some of his friends of which I only remember the name of Namor (apologies to the rest) we had a very pleasant night in a former monastery in the town of Altura.
That night I learned a lot and the truth is that the place was awesome.

The first was that well that Augusto illuminated enterely:

As a soundtrack i have this 3 videos (awesome!). Speaking of height… “Higher ground” is a song I knew by the Red Hot Chili Peppers (pay atention to the bassist pants):

But the song is Steve Wonder’s, he has what is known as perfect pitch (it would be nice for me in the dictates!) and very evil for him to play with me… He can hear every mistake in a song…lol :

And one of the most current Playing for a Change version(pay atention to voice of Clarence Bekker (Amsterdam), whom I had the opportunity to see in the Turia River a couple of years ago and I got goosebumps):
