    Hi from Santurtzi (Spain)

    Hi, I'm Santos, a photo addict who loves abstract photography. But I love more subjects and I would like to share both photographs and ideas with you. I live in Santurtzi, a fishing village, near Bilbao, (Spain) next to the Cantabrian Sea. This sea has been the source of inspiration for most...

    A7III + Zeiss Batis 18mm f/2.8

    On a small walk near the river I made a couple of shots to keep evaluating the results of A7III + Zeiss Batis 18mm f/2.8 Full frame shot adjusted at taste in LR and CC So far so good. The results look a bit cooler than with the 24 GM

    Wale beach under very harsh light

    In the beginning of the XXth Century during Summer, people lived in this beach chasing wales which were appearing nearby. These days, of course... The light is very harsh but the way way not better. Many pebbles make it hard and dangerous. The Sun was very bright and strong, also.

    Polluted lake

    The group visited yesterday the 22 May a polluted area of a pyrite mine which has been abandoned for a long time. As the excavations went deed on earth, the phreatic surface of the waters comes up slowly degrading the ambient, showing some beautiful diversity of textures and colours.

    Four Days of Fog and Frost

    The Midwest has had some interesting weather these past few days. It started with some sloppy wet snow, followed by freezing rain, then a whole lot of widespread dense freezing fog. The combination is a painter/photographer's dream. When it continues for as long as this has, it becomes a...

    Moving water....

    Here are two views from a hike in Smoky Mountain National Park. This was my first ever use of a neutral density filter, something I had wanted to try for quite some time. Both of these images are 10-second exposures. In hindsight, I could have gotten away with somewhat shorter exposure times.

    Fairies and infrared

    This is an infrared photograph I took of a small pond on my farm. I love taking photos of this pond, especially in IR. This photo has flipped vertically in the center (or perhaps you could say it was rotated 180 degrees). The upper half of this image as shown here is all a reflection off of the...

It’s a haven for retirees because of the weather and lifestyle. It also has very respectable medical services dealing with old people...
