Incredible weather phenomena

I used to be able to photograph the effects of incredible hail. While it looks innocent in pictures, in fact it was not so nice to see what was left of it.Fortunately, the hailstorm is already a past and only pictures left after.                 continue reading

Sometimes bad weather is not so bad

The popular belief is that you can only take good photos on sunny days, but a day with storm clouds can give a dramatic and expressive atmosphere to a place that on sunny days is not so attractive to photograph,To take the picture of the first image, I simply measured the exposure in the clear area of the sky, that way everything else in the picture is dark, accentuating the silhouette of the city that is not important to detail in the composition and giving more Importance to bad weather clouds... continue reading

Weather and Sport

Having seen its night pictures before and having made a tour over it in the afternoon, I made up my mind to return there in the evening, when it is lightened with different colors.In fact, it was a warm clear day, but..... when we arrived with my wife to Allianz Arena in the dark about 9 p.m. the rain began...
