I love photographing the Dead Sea (though you will never see me inside it unless I was dragged inside by a tractor). It has something very peaceful, calm, it's just too bad I can't sit on the beach (the thought of the saltiness, minerals, and oils that wash to the shore and the possibility of me accidently touching them kills me) and so photography is the perfect solution for me!
I take pictures while standing up, and watch the outcome at home with the air-con on. A winning combo!
In our eyes, a drop falling is simply a drop, falling down and hitting the surface below, but what really happens is way more than that.
Two drops clashing together, a single drop hitting the surface and then bouncing back up, drop reflections - you can't usually see these, but with the right timing and the right equipment you can catch just that.
Even before I started photographing, nature had a really special spot in my heart. I would go out on trips with my family, be it to the north or to the south, to see the beauty and wonders of nature. It's just too bad that usually, this beauty lasts only for a while.
Every person has a moment in life he wished time would just freeze, and for me, nature photography is making that wish come true.
With my camera, I capture the magical moment in front of me and freeze it, so I'll be able to see it again and again afterwards, and share it with others.
A resting place. That's all they're asking for.
For them it doesn't matter if it's a whole tree, a single branch, an artificial twig or a simple fence, all they want is a place they can land on to rest their wings.
Once, I went out to photograph some birds and while I was preparing my second camera, a bird landed on the first. I was shocked.
I didn't believe such a thing could happen, but now that I knew, I decided to try and do it again.
It's important to say that the cameras had nothing on them. No water, food, or anything else that could attract birds. All the birds landed on the camera on their own free will.
So, what's the secret you ask? I have only three answers for this. Location, patience, and luck. Lots of luck.
At the dawn of a new day and at its end, the skies are colored in a variety of colors.
Each day it's different, unique, and eye-blinding, and every second they change even more.
Even among all the amazing sunsets and sunrises, there are always really exceptional ones.
Those that leave your mouth open with wonder and your eyes crave for more.
