Finding the joy.

I decided that I needed some fresh air. And found it here:

Some family issues are keeping me too busy to find inspiration or try new things. Let's say I'm .... weary, worn out.
Then I decided to take part in the 2010 workshop. Akthough I was not an active forum member, all the indications, assignments, sugestions, ideas... all were fresh air.
Thanks Kelly Willete, for it helped. It was kinda therapeutic.
I recommend this workshop whatever your needs are!
New and fresh projects are now waiting in my bag! And sure I'll complete them!

underwater with Starblitz.

With temperatures higher than 35ÂșC, underwater is the best place to be.
And my point and shoot went underwater too.
underwater is cooler

This plastic bag proved to be effective, it was cheap, the quality is good, and it is waaaaay fun!
Only 5 metres deep, but enough.

landscape: La Mancha, Don Quixote's land.

I wish I had had more time to take some more photos, as this is a land of spectacular contrasts, so dry, but so rich, humble, but exhuberant, a land of colors, of beauty.
The land of Don Quixote.
land of beautiful colors
This photo was taken from my car. I wasn't driving, but we couldn't stop, as we were on the highway.
I photoshopped it to clean the spots on the windscreen. Colors are intensified by the polarizer filter the camera had on.

same tree, different settings.

It makes a big difference!
All the shots were made at f13 and lowest ISO; shutter speed varies between 160 and 250, and white balance was set at sun and bulb.
