New on 500px : Brother by Barisparildar by Barisparildar

Last 10 days was all about having the greatest time with my brother. He has 2 kids and lives far from US. We did not have time together for a long time. So when he called and said he was gonna visit me couple months ago I have already decided what to do when he is in California with me, a long road trip.

We bought him a new camera as soon as he arrived to LA. He already knew using a camera but did not have time to practice. So I tried to show him lots of places and at the same time showed him some tricks about photography. How to expose, compose and other little stuff I learned in the past years.

I can’t describe how beautiful time has passed. He now knows his camera so well that sometimes he is faster than me to take a picture now.

I am grateful that I had this opportunity to spend time with him after years.

This is one of the many shots I took on the trip. We were unlucky about weather most of the time. There was fog everywhere we stopped. We didn’t see much of a good light. But at this moment clouds made a dramatic scene and created a beautiful light before sunset.

New on 500px : Low and Dry by Barisparildar by Barisparildar

Looking over the lowest, driest place in North America and the hottest place on Earth. It was 117°F when we were down there…

I would drive for years and never get bored in California…

Stars, ocean, snowy mountains, huge trees, sand dunes, waterfalls, rivers, wild animals and great people… I appreciate every moment I live here…

Have a great week everybody!!!

New on 500px : Wash your spirit clean by Barisparildar by Barisparildar

Keep close to Nature’s heart… and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.

New on 500px : Strangers and Waves by Barisparildar by Barisparildar

I was driving on PCH today, listening “Tool” on Pandora… Waves looked amazing all the way from Santa Monica to Malibu… 10 minutes before sunset, i pulled over my car, took my camera out and started looking for an interesting composition. Sunset was pretty regular. Colors were just not attracting me at all. Then i saw these people… Waves were breaking right behind them. It looked like a perfect moment to capture. This is the secret of photography. Don’t get stuck on one idea. Look around and observe. Something will come up eventually. If i insisted on taking a sunset picture i would never be able to catch this moment.
