کسی که مدام خواهان ترقی است، باید منتظر باشد روزی به سرگیجه دچار شود. سرگیجه چیست؟
ترس از افتادن؟ اما چرا روی بلندی حفاظ دار ساختمان هم دچار سرگیجه می شویم؟
چون سرگیجه چیز دیگری، غیر از ترس از افتادن است. در واقع، آوای فضای خالی زیر پایمان ما را به سوی خود جلب می کند و تمایل به سقوط - که لحظه ای بعد با ترس در برابرش مقاومت می کنیم - سراسر وجود ما را فرا می گیرد.
Taillefer and Milky Way ! Went on a hike last weekend to camp at a summit (2857m) Stunning view from the top over the #alps ! Managed to get a shot of the #milkyway despite being out of the best season and a bit late in the night because of the moon.
You may find yourself thinking, upon visiting Seville’s cathedral that there is something rather Islamic about its famous belfry, the Giralda. If so, you wouldn’t be entirely wrong, for it is almost all that remains of the Almohad mosque that stood here before. Commissioned by Caliph Abu Yaqub Yusuf, work began on what was intended to be Ishbiliya’s main mosque, in 1172. Though the mosque was in use from 1182, the minaret wasn’t finished until 1198 and was sufficiently spacious for beasts of burden to climb its ramps, which must have been helpful for elderly or tired muezzins, who would otherwise have had to make the original 51-metre climb five times a day on foot. Fifty years later, the mosque was no more. In 1248, Seville was captured by the Reconquista. Abu Yaqub’s mosque was swiftly repurposed, initially by being repartitioned and ‘Christianised’ but later, in 1434, most of it was pulled down to make way for the construction of the city’s new (and massive) Gothic cathedral. Despite this, it is still possible to get a glimpse of how the mosque would once have looked. This can be done by standing in the Patio of the Orange Trees, which was the former mosque’s sahn, where Muslims performed their ritual ablutions before prayers. From here, the Giralda rises so steeply, that the Christian additions atop become less visible and as the sun sets, it’s almost possible to imagine the call to prayer once again emanating from above.
My wonderful bride was lighting assistant this night. Just shooting the #templeoftheson was perfect. Trying to light up the #templeofthemoon proved a bit more difficult. Even with walkie talkies there was a struggle. Them came the question that I had no answer for as she was moving in brush and trying to keep the light low "are there things that could bite me?" Well we are in a desert. And yes, yes there could be. The interesting fact is with low level lighting, she could not see how well or poorly things were lit up. It was only through the long exposure. So I made the decision to get my shots as best as I could so she could return to the SUV before something did bite her. She is awesome.
9 shots stacked in sequator
Foreground was 25 seconds.
It didn't turn out as well as I liked but I did get a really good shot of just the temple of the sun with the milky way. I learned a lot and we had a lot of fun. Plus with the drive, I know I made it to a place that not many folks will ever travel to let alone see it under the stars like we did.
