Original Art Photography Series by @velimir #196 'Two Skies'

'Two Skies'

I feel the winter sun coming through the naked branches of several old trees. Even though the feeling I get is not warm but rather cold to the point of strange, it is always nice to see the sun in winter time.

It is one sky, of course, regardless of the title. We all live under the same one, just like those two old trees. I named it after the blue and cyan colours that halve the background of the image, each taking its own side and letting the sun take charge of the middle. The light area under the sun appears as if it's coming down from the sun. It creates the third part of the background.

The foreground is fully graphical, its linear treatment adds a touch of a scent of fear but, I believe that it is very much softened by the treatment of colours, thus presenting a perfect example of colour working against linearity. Very dark, strongly subdued green ground under the trees definitely 'grounds' the image, giving it a strong base. I made a version without the ground, too. That one is more 'airy' and far more abstract. Decided to publish this one but the other one is not bad at all. Only different.

I could say the beauty of this one is hidden in its ambiguity. The atmosphere is moody but the sun is present. The colours are cold but the light is there and we're happy to see it. It is about sky and air, but it's strongly grounded all at the same time.

How do you feel this one? :)

Enjoy! :)

It's fantastic! The photo is better than other shots I saw possibly because of the enhanced colors. I can't tell for sure but it's very eye-catchy and relaxing at the same time.


Fantastic vote friend is very powerful I invite you to support me if you can with one of your votes dear friend I will be grateful greetings


@velimir your work is really inspiring, I really love trees and the blue is perfect.
I'm an artist who has just joined steemit. I created digital work using 3d software and other programme, i just wrote and intro, appreciate support and welcome from art community. check the intro here


The colors are a simple contrast to the level of detain in the branches.

Beautiful. The colors look stunning.

I don't know what it is about tree limbs reaching upward and outward in silhouettes against a beautifully lit sky, but I also love capturing my perspective of these striking visuals whenever they call to me. Although this photo has a contrasted darkness to it, I feel it is illuminated with light and warmth and only brings joy and connection to the life around us.


I like how the colors are a simple contrast to the heavy amount of detail in the branches.

thanks for sharing!

Beautifull picture.. it also reflects that in dark moments the sun will always
shine through! With hardships always comes ease! Great picture!

Great photo!!!! The color combination is perfect!!!!!

Really like the positive vibe you are trying to generate amidst all these negative things.Great job!!!!!

This photo is so beautiful, but it makes me a little sad too

Wowww just Awesome your photography make me to paint this picture on canvas i will paint it on canvas soon..:)


let me know if you do! :)


Yeah sure hope it will become same as you captured it:) ^_^

Without reading your text under the photograph, I will describe my first feelings - the cold and association with the "bare" winter. Naked just because the winter in the usual sense is snow. But the photo feels winter cold - but there is no snow.
After reading the text, I understand that I was partially right. The processed photo thanks to shades can really cause feeling of pavor. But I would not call it so, it's more a sense of confusion when you do not fully understand what's going on. You look at the picture, you have certain feelings, but you are in turmoil .... good work @velimir, good work

Beautifully described with superb photo.I always follow your post it gives me sheer pleasure and joy.@upvoted

Wow..Thats very good photography...I appreciate to see this photo... That's amazing looking so much ..

Lolz! I could have wondered how many skies do we now have. The view you took the shot was just perfect. The trees, the sun inbetween 2 colorful sky.

Very beautiful! A perfect combination of the sun, the trees against the sky of different shades

More than a wonderful painting of nature and @velimir

I love to see that place where you can have a quiet time to think about life. And having a good conversation to God as well...

Wow thats outstanding art , i like this @velimir

Deferent feel when you see the sky in the winter and summer, I think for me when I seen it in the dessert in Morocco 10 years ago lovely feel.

really cant wait

Wow fantastic images

I feel like this place would have a bit airy and scary yet a calm place. I'd always love to stay in a place like this alone. I am an earth dragon that's probably why I love the smell of the ground after a light drizzle. I think I am like the nature, silent at most times but scary when angry. By the way, the photo is very impressive. I love the colors that the sky is giving. Though, the woods give me the idea of Taylor Swift song's 'Into the Woods'. hehehe

Dear good luck you are work hard for photograpy

As we know that plants can not move where to find matahri. However, plants can grow in the direction of sunlight. As it grows in the sunlight, it uses the food stored in the tubers.

a very precise point of view with lighting

Your beautiful photograph conveys a strange but pleasant sensation. I think it's about the color combination that you managed to capture. Thank you very much for that image.

@velimer hi sir, this is the first time that I saw your work. I got inspired on how you capture a photo, there is really a feelings. I am not a photographer, but being a photographer is one of my dreams, but you know I only have an android phone to capture events. I am not a pro but I want to learn.. You are such an inspiration.

Now that's atmospheric.

this photo is able to attract attention. the composition is very good, I think it's hard to get the same hanging moments at a later time.

very very very nice photo.
