  5. 5. “Smile, breathe and go slowly.” —THICH NHAT HANH
  6. 6. A snowy vineyard in South Moravia Martin Vorel, 2018
  7. 7. Baltic Sea in Poland Martin Vorel, 2018 To achieve the dreamy effect of the long exposure, which required an exposure of at least 20s, I had to wait until long after sunset. Because I didn't have an ND filter that can extend the exposure.
  8. 8. A dark winter lake on the outskirts of Prague Martin Vorel, 2021
  9. 9. Misty forest in Orava mountains, Slovakia Martin Vorel, 2018
  10. 10. A snowy tree in Prague Martin Vorel, 2018 I took this black & white photo on a hill in Prague. Fresh snow had just fallen and everything was beautifully white. In the background is a panorama of the Prague skyline, but it is hidden in "white darkness".
  11. 11. B&W FLOWERS
  12. 12. Nature Minimalism Martin Vorel, 2021 Minimalist abstract nature photography in pure clarity. Black and white silhouette of a twig in the shape of a wave with white snow in the background. On the day this photo was taken, I took the 3 most beautiful photos of the whole winter.
  13. 13. Tree in the Snow Black and white photo of a tiny tree in the snow. This is my second favorite photo I took that winter. As soon as I saw the tree, I knew I had to take a picture of it. I fell to my knees and took pictures for several tens of minutes. People walking around probably thought I was crazy. But I think it was worth it! Martin Vorel, 2021
  14. 14. Winter Minimalism Minimalist photography in the style of Japanese Zen Buddhism. Third photo in this series. When it snowed in January 2021, it stayed on the ground for about 14 days. This is very unusual. Normally, our snow melts by the next day. After a few days, I finally find time to go out with my camera. I felt like in paradise. There were so many beautiful twigs and trees growing from the snow :) Martin Vorel, 2021
  15. 15. Dead Thistle Flower Martin Vorel, 2022 Photograph of a dead thistle plant whose spines below the flower are twisted into a spiral, creating beautiful and photogenic shapes. The spines on dry thistle flowers almost always grow straight. Sometimes, however, they twist into spirals or into strange shapes where the flowers look like they are dancing.
  16. 16. Silhouette of Willow Branches Martin Vorel, 2018 B&W photo of thin twigs in the shape of curls. I was just going to work from my mother’s house when I noticed what beautiful shapes nature can create. If you want to find similar things, look not only around you but raise your head and look above you. You will definitely discover beautiful things!
  17. 17. Organic Shape Martin Vorel, 2021 Nature can create such beautiful geometric shapes. I often go out and look for them. Usually, I don’t find anything. But sometimes I’m lucky. This also happened one day I spent around the Konopiště chateau. I discovered a small meadow that was completely ordinary at first glance. On closer inspection, I noticed dozens of beautiful dry plants of strange shapes. I walked through the whole meadow and inspected each individual plant. In the end, I chose two and took them home. And so this and several other photographs were created.
  18. 18. Dead Flower Photograph of a dead thistle plant whose spines below the flower are twisted into a spiral. This photo is the most abstract of all in this series (Dead Thistle Plants). I only captured the spirally coiled spines growing directly under the bloom. Martin Vorel, 2021
  19. 19. B&W ARCHITECTURE
  20. 20. Abstract Prague Martin Vorel, 2022 The creation of this photograph has been in my mind for a long time and I’m really glad that I finally managed to make it happen. I shot by setting a high aperture of f/18.0 and a long exposure time of 1.6 seconds. I then pressed the shutter button and moved the camera up and down during the exposure to create the desired blur.
  21. 21. Prague Castle Silhouette Martin Vorel, 2022 This photograph was actually taken by accident. I was taking an abstract photo of Prague Castle and noticed that through the leaves, Prague Castle looks completely different from what we are all used to.
  22. 22. The Baroque granary Martin Vorel, 2022 This baroque building from the 18th century belonging to the farmstead of Týnice near Prague. The massive building made of rubble masonry is located in a dominant landscape position.
  23. 23. Fog in Prague Martin Vorel, 2021 I captured this serene moment while strolling along the Vltava river in Prague on a chilly January morning. The thick fog had enveloped the city for several days, adding an ethereal touch to the already mystical atmosphere of Prague.
  24. 24. Dark & Abstract Church in Prague Týn Cathedral is a famous and beautiful Gothic church on Old Town Square in Prague. I took this photo on my way home from shooting abstract photography of Prague Castle and I used the same method. A bit longer exposure time and moving the camera up and down during the shoot. Martin Vorel, 2022
  25. 25. Corpus Christi Chapel Martin Vorel, 2021 Abstract image of the interior of Corpus Christi Chapel in Kutná Hora. Beautiful gothic vault and columns illuminated by the sun rays shining through the small windows.
  26. 26. B&W ANIMALS
  27. 27. A Swan in Prague I took this photo by pure chance. I waited more than an hour in line for antigen tests on Covid-19 on the banks of the Vltava River in Prague. Then the swans arrived. I came very close and they didn’t run anywhere because they were waiting to get something to eat. The contrast of dark water, white swans, and snow was beautiful. Martin Vorel, 2021
  28. 28. Great Egret Martin Vorel, 2021 At this pond I usually see many beautiful animals such as Grey herons, cormorants, nutria or swans. But I saw a white heron for the first time here. It was sitting on the other side of the large pond but luckily I had my Nikkor 200-500mm telephoto lens with me. I set the lens to 500mm, exposure time to 1/640s, aperture to f/16 and ISO to 1600.
  29. 29. Snail Shell Martin Vorel, 2021 The snail shell has long been an example of nature's perfection and symmetry. I collected shells and searched for the most beautiful one, then I placed the shell on a black blanket, illuminated it from the side with a building reflector, and with the help of a Tamron 90mm macro lens I took dozens of different photos. And this was the best.
  30. 30. Highland cattle Martin Vorel, 2021 I took this photo on the outskirts of a small village near Benesov in central Bohemia. Although cattle were not traditionally bred here, they have become very popular nowadays. To get a portrait of the cow's head, I had to use a long telephoto lens set at 450mm. Thanks to the low aperture of f/5.6, only the head is in focus and the rest of the body is slightly blurred.
  31. 31. The Swan Martin Vorel, 2018 Black and white photograph of a beautiful swan swimming on the dark surface of a lake. There was only this one swan on the whole pond that day. She must have been a little bored or hungry because as soon as I approached the water she swam right up to me. At first I was a bit scared of her as she came dangerously close to me 🙂 But eventually we became friends and she followed me wherever I went.
  32. 32. B&W ABSTRACT
  33. 33. Birches in motion Martin Vorel, 2021 Another photo was taken at my favourite place near the village of Dubeč. On the opposite shore there were two beautiful groups of white birches surrounded by dark deciduous trees. I tried to photograph the white trees and their reflections on the surface of the water so that they were vertically blurred. This technique is sometimes called 'painting with light'. The idea is to set a slightly longer exposure time and move the camera up and down during the exposure. This creates this interesting "vertical blur" effect.
  34. 34. Abstract tree Martin Vorel, 2021 Winter photography of the famous tree in Prague - Modřany. Taken by moving the lens zoom during exposure. This photo is part of a series in which I try to capture the most beautiful trees in the Czech Republic in an unusual way.
  35. 35. Mushrooms in the dark Martin Vorel, 2020 A group of white mushrooms on a black background. I took this photo in the woods near our house. I found a group of mushrooms at the base of a tree. Their white bodies shone beautifully even though they were hidden in the shade.
  36. 36. The old fisherman and the sea Martin Vorel, 2020 I took this long exposure photo of the coast near the town of Makarska in Croatia. That day I took dozens of photos of the coast that I thought would be interesting. And I completely forgot about this one. I was all the more surprised when I found it among all the other boring photos. The small fishing boat bobbing on the waves, appearing every evening when all the other boats and yachts were in port.
  37. 37. Poplars in motion Martin Vorel, 2022 I took this photo in a village near Prague. There are several poplar trees in a row. I wanted to make an abstract photo, so I used a longer exposure time of 0.60s. I moved the camera up and down while taking the photo. With this type of photography it is quite difficult to find the right combination of shutter speed, camera movement speed and also to create the desired composition.
  38. 38. B&W PEOPLE
  39. 39. Sand Dune in Mongolia Martin Vorel, 2019 In the westernmost part of the Khongoryn Els sand dunes in the Mongolian Gobi Desert is the highest dune, with a peak of more than 200m. Every day before sunset, dozens of tourists from nearby yurt camps arrive in tourist minibuses. They all have one goal. To climb the highest peak and watch the sun set behind the dunes.
  40. 40. People and fishermen silhouettes Martin Vorel, 2020 I took this photo in the town of Makarska on the coast of Croatia. I found a concrete jetty with a beautiful view of the cliffs opposite. A great place for silhouette photography. I set up a tripod on the stone breakwaters at the jetty and waited for the perfect composition. And I think it was worth the wait.
  41. 41. The Buddha Martin Vorel, 2021 A simple photograph of Buddha in meditation. Minimalist composition using the silhouette of a wooden Buddha statue that was once given to me by my mother.
  42. 42. Sad lonely man I took this photo in the Podolí district of Prague on my way home from work. I usually take the quickest way home. I was in a bad mood that day and needed to take a walk. A lonely man was sitting on the wall of Vyšehrad looking dreamily at the cityscape, so I took a telephoto lens and photographed him. Martin Vorel, 2019
