The earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that in glory and in triumph they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot. Think of the endless cruelties visited by the inhabitants of one corner of the dot on scarcely distinguishable inhabitants of some other corner of the dot. How frequent their misunderstandings, how eager they are to kill one another, how fervent their hatreds. Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the universe, are challenged by this point of pale light. Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity -- in all this vastness -- there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves. It is up to us. It's been said that astronomy is a humbling, and I might add, a character-building experience. To my mind, there is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly and compassionately with one another and to preserve and cherish that pale blue dot, the only home we've ever known. -Carl Sagan
A little crystal love during this blackout ☺️🌑⚡️⚡️⚡️

Maybe it meant something. Maybe not, in the long run, but no explanation, no mix of words or music or memories can touch that sense of knowing that you were there and alive in that corner of time and the world. Whatever it meant.

Well there's not much to say about that one. Except the fact that the sun was hiding itself behind those coulds. But good news is that it gave totally another feel to the whole scene, felt so warm and soft at the same time. It got me thinking that, sometime, you can plan your shot as much as you want to but the unexpected ones often ends up being among the best one. in fact the composition is really simple compared to those where I waited for hours to have a perfectly alined sun. But feel is still there.

Well I think I just like when things are well aligned together. Just another snap of the sun perfectly going to take a rest between two branches of the tree. Looking back at it closely , we can see a sort of balance, bright enough to still see something and dark enough to be able to get those magnificent colors in the sky.

Hey guys, hope you are doing all well. Another shot from that road trip down to the south of the island, that one was snapped pretty rapidly, as I was just walking towards the car to get my camera due to these wonderful colors. I saw like the reflection of those colors on the side of the car, so I just got the camera , framed the shot and took it. Now it's among one of my favorite shots and also the easiest one I ever took. Then I came to realise that when you think about it, life itself as never been complicated or anything, I think that we just tend to make it difficult by overthinking way too much on what could possibly be instead of what can we possibly make.
Wanted to thank your suggestions next theme is street photography ( I think 😂 ) well at least working on it, you'll see soon enough guys ✌️ __________________________

Long story short, I was going back home when I just had a look to the side. Saw this famous mountain formation surrounded by those beautiful colors.
Just got time to stop, took a bottle filled with water so I could get a subject and then take the shot. It turned out prettier than I expected.
Then it made me think that, sometimes you literally do not need much things to get a shot, just you and your creativity.
As requested sunsets are coming 😊✌️. Well that shot is months old, it was taken during a road trip to the south. .
Magnificent part of the island, with mesmerizing sunsets. This place is so peaceful that by just sitting there I couldn't be able to notice the hours passing by. Yup nearly missed the shot as always 😂.
Do you like sunsets guys ?
Let me know what you think ✌️😊 __________________________

For that one I was just walking in the forest when I stated that, light was able to penetrate only through some holes in between of tree leaves.
Looking down where light was hitting the floor, I saw that, contrast between the growing plants and the dead leaves was incredibly beautiful with how the light was hitting only one part of the frame.
And it made me see a sort a balance in how life and nature shapes and organize things ... _________________________________
Keep in mind that sometimes simple is beautiful ...
~ Another mountain shot.
Well that one was particular as I was standing in the middle of the highway to get the composition i wanted to get.
So yeah stopped cars just to get a shot.
Life is only defined by your true will of doing what it takes to get what you want ...
~ Something a little different today no quote ✌️ ... Went to eau bleu the other day, for ones who doesn't know what it is, it is supposed to be a waterfall with an incredibly blue water contrasting the vegetation surrounding it.
This place being so attractive I decided to have a look and some shots, buuut, things turned out differently, pond was completely empty due the weather conditions. So this I what I was left with, this magestic waterfall was just an empty point of water with trees and rocks.
Been a bit disappointed because I knew I couldn't get the shot I wanted to get. Fact is that as I went there I decided to just have a rest on the rock and admire nature's calmness. As my eyes were looking forward at those leaves and this wall of rocks I saw that place as I could have never possibly see it through a photograph , then came time to get this shot, still a wonderful place but just different ,
What I mean is that being different is just fine, otherwise you would not be you who brings a little more to this world.
Peace guys ✌️
