Picture of the month: close encounter

Close encounter of the third kind


Close encounter of the third kind: “UFO encounters in which an animated creature is present. These include humanoids, robots, and humans who seem to be occupants or pilots of a UFO“.


Everything is true (or almost):

Back in 2013 I witnessed this strange phenomenon. While taking a picture of my friends in the park, we were suddenly caught in a dense fog. We heard a loud hissing sound and, all of a sudden, seemingly out of nowhere, these “humanoids” or “entities” appeared. My friends quickly turned around and managed to snap a few shots of these “beings” with their cellphone, while I pressed the shutter to capture a picture of them surrounded by these strange creatures. The whole thing lasted only for a few seconds, then the fog cleared and everything was normal again….

“Gour Blue” is one of the most beautiful falls on the river Hérisson and part of the “Cascades du Hérisson”, located in the French Jura. A more detailed description of this location and some tips on how to photograph waterfalls can be found in this post.

I just got back from a fabulous trip to the French Jura mountains. I went there mainly to shoot waterfalls, although I knew it was not the best time of the year for these kind of shots. In summer there’s simply not a lot of water in the small mountain rivers, so most waterfalls look kind of smallish and not very compelling. However, I managed to find some interesting falls, despite the lack of water.
