It was well past midnight on a hot, heavy night in the city of Rab. Sultry air was oozing through the stony streets and yet the streets were almost empty. Perfect setting for some pictures of stones to be taken. No stroy behind these pictures, just pure impressions. So follow the line and come with me.

So it seems to be quite a stony place. Full of beautiful stones. It has a fairytale touch to it. :)

Yes, Mediterranean cities are often like that. Really charming with their old, narrow streets. And quite magic at night when tourists go back to their hotels. :)

I am constantly impressed with how well you use or create light to perfect your photos...

I think I just use it. I rarely ever use some aditional light sources. And I really don't like flash. I'd rather go for grainy high ISO shots than freeze the time with flash.

Those are cool. The blur on the first one is cool. It's such a suttle blurring the farther away the frame goes. The one with the tower and people is amazing.

Thanks, David. I used F2.8 to make the distant places disappear. And I was lucky there were some ladies at the tower to add some life. Streets were more or less empty at half past midnight.

Yes, it's really lovely. We were there for four days this time. Igor and I spent quite some time on island Rab in the past few years.

There is so much beauty in the world and I fear there will not be enough years in my life to rediscover it all.

There is a lot of beauty in the world and, yes, we won't have enough time to see it all, so let's get all the beauty we can get in that little moment in time and space we are enjoying now.

Thanks, Bill. Blame it on that charming island Rab. And the city of Rab. :)

LOVELY! I want to go there, walk in the night, become one with it.
What a lovely sense of peace and calm I get from these images.

It looked really pretty, but it was hot.

And, yes, it definitely was calm.
