Photographing sunsets and sunrises around l’Escala, Girona

Location: Cala Mateua // Time: to photograph sunrise at L’Escala, and some sunsets too

Sunrise at L'escala, Cala Mateua

This summer 2016 was the first time in a long stretch that I had the chance to devote some time to one of my favorite things: chasing the sun as it goes through the horizon. I usually prefer it going down, as I like sleeping over in the morning. But living close to an east coast is synonym of sunrises… but lucky me, camping next to Cala Mateua would bring me the opportunity to photograph the sunrise and the sunset from the same spot, and the Mediterranean right in front of me.

Location: Montserrat, Barcelona // Time: for an unexpected sunset

Sunset in Montserrat

Lately I have not much time left for photography. And even less time for extensive posts on how I do the things I do. Life gets busy, very busy sometimes, and it’s probably best to accept it and relax. Better times will come when I can get back to the things I am passionate about. For now, here’s a shot I took while being away during the weekend. I really enjoyed that unexpected sunset in Montserrat.

In his new album, titled Absències, Catalan composer Enric Carreras let the memories of his Dad guide him in this intimate and personal studio work.

D500 vs D7200, or why I didn’t buy the new Nikon D500 (owning a D300) and bought a D7200 instead

Location: from the comfort of home // Time: to talk about D500 vs D7200

Nikon D500 vs D7200 and its box, together with the Nikkor 50mm f/1.8

I have been waiting for it for 8 years, which in the digital era, equals to forever. I had even given up on it. And then, when all of us thought the possibility of a D400 was pure internet mythology, the D500 came along to prove us all wrong. Here I will tell you why, as a D300 owner, I decided to not upgrade to the best Nikon Dx camera ever made, the D500, and went with the D7200 instead.  Here is the D500 vs D7200 post you have been waiting for.
