Never reaching the end... by Michel-Lag-Chavarria Never reaching the end... by Michel-Lag-Chavarria
Men,
In their religious fever,
Always try to reach
The End,
The Way,
The Answer,
Or the Highest,
Or what could be
Just the Beginning,
Of something
Before anything:
THEMSELVES...
But always caricatured in a silent God...

Sometimes,
On the way to try to reach their souls,
They build some awesome Art works...
...
..
.

Mont Saint Michel, France…

Canon EOS 300D + 18-55 mm Canon zoom @ 55 mm
Contrast and clarity with Photoshop Elements 2.0, noise reduction and frame with Paint Shop Pro...
Note: the sky is absolutely natural; I’ve just used a UV filter on the lens... as usual...

The sky is so beautiful...

The two slightly curved trails of light make this already stunning photograph even more so. It makes you wonder if that wasn't among the reasons why mankind felt the desire to touch the skies...the reason why they built that building in the first place. So long as they remember the ground they stand on, to have a strong foundation, to not get too carried away with dreams and desires...to remember that there are also wonders here in places, things and peoples still undiscovered.

Among the ageless sky and the ancient building, the bird included brings in life to the otherwise beautiful but unreachable image.

just a question-did U do any collage with the sky, 'cause the scale doesn't really fit the island scale... i have never seen such huuuuge clouds...

No, I never make any "manipilation" in my pictures, I mean that I never add any external element or subject, or change the physical reality... The picture is entire and, of course, worked in Photoshop but with only 1 layer. I just correct the "levels", "contrast", "saturation" sometimes, "noise reduction" always and some touches of "burn" and "dodge", that's all... So all my clouds are real...
Thank you for commenting... :hug:
