Stoney Weather by gilad Stoney Weather by gilad

The mirror shows some cracks
It's still me in there, but I don't look the same
Do you still see me for who I am?
Now that I am not what you think I am

Somebody turned off the light
And now I can't hear your voice
I can't see you, can't feel you
Though it's your hands hugging me in the dark

They are still playing our songs on the radio
But they don't sound the same
I think the rhythm seems to be too fast
Or is it us that are getting to be too slow?

The sun still comes out every day
But it doesn't feel to be warm anymore
I think stoney weather times have arrived
For my girl and I


****

The winter comes to Israel, and with it the stormy Ideas... :D

Watch in full view to realize the details.
Just a simple reflection from a thin layer of water, on the wet sand.
I see from the comments it's not completly understood..
No manipulation

Thank to for the brilliant title suggestion.

I also recommend you take a listen to the music composed from the words I wrote to this.
I truly appreciate his interpatation to my words. [link] If you like it, be sure to tell him.

oh my.
This is very beautiful.
I can't believe I haven't come across it until now.

It looks like someone took a tinfoil with a metallic-y sky pattern on it and wrapped it over the sand.
I've never seen sand act as a mirror like that before.
This is amazing.

Amazing work as always, truely the king of relfections. I dug your interveiw...very inspireing, i try to do the similar things with reflections but i can never seem to get them to come out crisp enough to be visible and appealing. Do you have any shutterspeed, aperture, or white balance tips for reflective sucess?

It's a manip. 2 layers, one sky with a dropped opacity over a sand image. The small puddle of water beside the rock gives away how much water there really is.

Just a thought, but surely if the sand was wet & reflecting that much sky color the rock also would be wet & reflecting at least some of the sky color? It seems like a very good manipulation to me ;)

Amazing colour and texture and depth of field, and of course the very idea itself is original and inspired.
