Crete 2010 #28 Gingilios pass

Posted by
Johan Dierckx (Wijnegem, Belgium) on 11 February 2011 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

In April 2010 I made a photo-trip to Crete. The main goal was surching and documenting the wild orchids and endimic flora of the Island. I already posted some of the species back in april (all images posted between 23/04/2010 and 15/05/2010).
In this series I will be posting mainly cityscapes and landscapes taken on the island during that trip.
For me it is a good occasion to review my images and select only the best and most representative ones from this trip.

Love it!! beautiful details! how do you achieve the clarity of the details, the fresh colors? beautiful beautiful!

@sunstone_maria: Thanks, Maria. The uwa-lens I use has great performance in details, clarity and colors. (Sigma 10-20 F3.5 EX DC HSM). I'd like to experiment with a 10 stop ND-filter (I think you use one regularly for your images ?) but can't find one in the right diameter for this lens. Think the effects would be very nice.

@anne: Een "doorkijkje" doet het altijd :-))). Grootste probleem was om nog voldoende structuur in de rotsen te houden om geen volledig zwarte vlakken te krijgen. Fijne dag nog, Anne.

Olivier from Manage, Belgium

Excellent cadrage, d'un paysage typiquement méditérannéen...

Interesting tree and nice composition. It looks very steep.

@Julie Brown: There are many places along the path where one may not fear hights but is one of the nicest walks one can make in that area of the island. Greetz, Julie !
