when gray finally turns colourful...
and so glad I'm not alone:

I do not regard myself as a photographer. I'm an ordinary man but extraordinarily obsessed with capturing all the memorable scenes that I encounter in my everyday life. It's like an excited traveller craving to record his memorable journey in a memorable way, but in my case, it's the journey of my life ... If I can record my encounters in such a way that they leave an image on the mind of myself and other viewers, it's a tremendous joy and some accomplishment...
In terms of photography, I'm trying to preserve the moments as my eyes see "something" and my heart feels it too. As such, I seldom feel interested in planned, arranged or manipulated photographs...

Very beautiful! I love that you caught the airplane in the sky. The sun just at the right moment, hovering over the buildings in the last light over the city. The magic hour haze is wonderful along with the shimmer over the water beyond the tanker. Just beautiful in so many ways. :)

Fantastic, Hugo, I like this wide panoramic full of details to enjoy. The sky is gorgeous and the sunset puts great colors. Good one.

@ordinaryimages: Oh, it's half an hour or so, I guess... but long enough to catch the diverse drama and change in mood!:-) Thanks Jerry! Have a nice day!

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

Now we have the pretty light and the still magnificent harbor. I love the light on the water and the airplane is a bonus. Great work as always, Hugo.

A lovely sunset shot. I'm glad you have so much sky in the shot as this makes the image for me.

A picture postcard Hugo! I really like it. But... the link to the shot with your 'companion' is a photo I much more enjoy looking at - as its got so much more to see. But that's not to detract from this excellent shot.

Stunning Hugo...from the boats in the water to the plane in the sky, with the sun setting over the skyline in between...the motion never stops...we travel continuously, by day and our search for....? Fantastic work my friend:)

The plane is the little icing on top of the pic, very nice tones (always so subtle are yours, Hugo) and the sun seems resting in balance on the roof. Bravo for the perfect timing and harmony in the whole frame*

Hi Hugo. I posted a picture today that was taken because I have been so enamored with your night shots. Not that it comes close, but I thought of you as I took it. :)
