When my city got covered with ice, a very good friend of mine, working in a bank sphere, towed me along to take pictures of that ice. We arrived at the beach and started strolling along the frozen sea looking for icy beauty.

But I got bored quite soon. I took only three pictures and after putting my camera back to the bag entertained myself by watching people manically taking pictures of themselves against the icy see.

At that moment I became completely sure, that nature photography is boring for me. I would with a greater pleasure shoot a girl against this ice or even more, I would put a tasty dish on this beautiful texture.

And what about nature? I’ll leave it to the real fans.
