(1/800, F4.5, ISO200, 17mm)
This time of year always comes with thoughts about how you spent the passing year and what will you do in the new one.
I´ve been very fortunate in 2014 to have been able to see so many new beautiful countries and places and meeting so many interesting people, that I can only think about the fact that if next year is gonna be anything like it, I will be happy as ever.
Only thing I can think of and I tried to start it up last month before my travels interrupted it, is to start exploring what the possibilities are to set up a real photo-business and website.
But as my friends and I always say when we raise another glass ´To better times!´.
If it is good it can always get better but when it´s not so good it will hopefully get better.
So thanks everyone of you that took the time to see, comment and support my photos.
Enjoy your holidays and best to all of you for 2015!
To better times!
(especially dedicated to those that need it)
Awesome shot! I especially like how you were able to convey the smooth texture of the water on the ground and the ridges of the metal sheet in this picture. Nice lighting as well!
Hello there, Ron! Have to say first, hope 2015 has been good to you so far, but truly – this image is so beautiful, crisp, clean and full of detail. Love it! On another note, I recently created a new site and blog at: http://www.lauriemerritt.photography/blog/. If/when you get a chance, I’d love to hear from you if for no other reason than to reconnect. I was “off the grid” for a couple of months to complete this project. Anyway, now I’m headed back to your posts… All the best!
I’m so far behind . . . . 😦 but so good catching up with you, your travels and all your great shots! 🙂
Hi Patti, talking about being behind, sometimes I am so bad in answering comments that I really appreciate, sorry for that, trying to improve 😉
Hope I´ll catch up and you´re doing well,
Stunning picture. Love the detail. Wish you a great 2015!

Thanks, Cardinal, just after I finished my beer(s) the golden hour, which wasnt more than 15 minutes started 😉
The entire composition tells many stories that are made bold by your capture.
Thats so kind of you to say and notice, Sally 😉
It was such a chaotic busy sight at the docks, everybody was carrying or doing something, i wanted a bit of that feel in here, and couldnt resist the reflection ofcourse!
Happy adventures to you and look forward to more of your off the beaten track travels.
Thank you very much, Liz same to you, so nice to follow/see all these sights all around the world here!
Happy travels and photographing to you, greetings, Ron.
Good luck in 2015 Ron. May the new year bring you happiness, good health and energy to continue your travel adventures. Some new camera gear is also on my list.
Muchas gracias, Eduardo! Hope the same for you, great health and happy travels, any plans?

Same to you, Karen, your start has been impressive 😉
Thanks and warm greetings, Ron
Mooie plaat Ron! De beste wensen voor 2015 en veel plezier met de afwegingen en acties om ‘pro’ te worden. Volgens mij ben je dat al in je kwaliteit, alleen is dat dan je baan 🙂
Dank je wel, Chris, jij ook de allerbeste wensen voor 2015!
Gelukkig is er geen (financiele) druk om er echt een baan van te maken, maar vind bovenal interressant om te zien wat er mogelijk is!
Tof om te horen dat je de kwaliteit in ieder geval al goed genoeg vindt 😉
Het is nooit verkeerd om meer opties in het leven te hebben!
En vooral als er geen druk achter zit 😉
Inderdaad! Leuk ding die Sony RX!
Fantastic shot. Happy New Year! Debbie
Happy new year to you, Debbie!

That is some great golden light!
Thanks, amigo, na een rijtje Myanmar-pilseners en paar uurkes lekker van ons afkieken, kon ik deze 10 minuten prachtlicht niet laten schieten, terwijl onze vrind ff een stokkie bbq-kip bij een stalletje verorberde 😉
Awaiting your website! Thanks for inviting us to see your wonderful world! Cheers!
Cheers to you, Carlos! Did do some trial-version back in November on photoshelter, but some travels got in the way of pushing it through 😉
Now I´m in the slow process of preparing to do it again!
All the best to you,
feels painterly…and warm.
Thanks, Hedy! The light turned golden for about 10 minutes so couldnt resist photographing 😉
yes the golden hour…lovely.
