2014 has been a great year for me, travel-wise. Even though I didn’t travel to exotic destinations, I’ve visited eight foreign countries and had the opportunity to take a huge number of photos in some really beautiful places. With this post, I am starting a series where I will be reminiscing about all those travels and showing you some of my best pictures collected during them.
Since I didn’t do any travels in January, I will start with February, when not much happened, apart from a two-day business trip to Barcelona, Spain. However, on the single morning I was there I planned a visit to the Sagrada Familia for sunrise and got some great pictures, especially when I decided to concentrate on the reflection of the church in the pond within the small part that lies on its eastern side.
By trying to shoot when the wind was not blowing too strong, I was able to get some reflections with an impressionistic effect. The one below, which has actually been flipped upside-down to hide the fact that it is indeed a reflection, I consider one of my best photos ever and it reminds me a bit of a painting by Monet. I hope you will agree with me.
