This Slovak photographer captures some of the most peacefully poetic glimpses of nature that I’ve seen in a long time. Veronika Gilková has a lot of different series of photos on her website, but I chose today to concentrate on her “Smoke Stories” (and a few other pictures that included smoke, while not being in the Smoke Stories category). Contrast is a thing that I love in photography and art in general –I like the way of combining pure, calm and beautiful landscapes, sublimed by the vivid color of blue or yellow smoke. A very specific color palette was chosen for those pictures, and that’s a thing I highly appreciate, especially those including snow –god damn, those are gorgeous! Take a minute to sink deep into the dreamy world of Veronika Gilková and maybe check her other works out on her facebook or tumblr.
