One of the places where Zeus was said to have hid his affairs with mortal women from his wife Hera. The sparkling water provides its bather an invisible armour against the hot for the next couple of hours even in August of Kusadası. The relatively large enterance of the cave separating the cool and dim inside making the vapour of your breath visible, also explains the reason why many an image shot as a single long exposure typical for low light scenarios would end up with burned foregrounds and blackout backgrounds.

I watched the man on the balcony. It was a beautiful composition, but something was missing. And suddenly there came a Pigeon in one second. A perfect composition in a wonderful day. Saint Tropez, France, May 2010. Camera Nikon D300, program manual, exposure 1/1000, aperture f/4.8, focal length 32mm. No photoshop, no HDR. Without edition, without retouching. Juan Rubiano

River Bank, Zhenyuan, China
Photo and caption by Fred Wang
This photo was taken in Zhenyuan, Guizhou Province, China this summer. I was taking a walk along the river bank of Wuyang in the mist of a late afternoon shower. Refreshing smell after rain was mixed with the aroma from nearby food stands. In the distance, kids were playing and laughing. The tranquil and harmonious life of the local people reminds me of the joyful time I grew up in a similar small town in the Southwest China.
