The Shadow Over Innsmouth by alexandre-deschaumes The Shadow Over Innsmouth by alexandre-deschaumes
Infernal cauldron .. picture done in pure HP Lovecraft' inspiration . Reminding me of my numerous aquatic nightmares with sprawling creatures wandering through unfathomable commotion .

A very beautiful, dark and stormy photograph, it is one of those photos were I stop and just go "Wow" At first glance it looks very artistic and has went through a lot of manipulation but the work put in to the photo is astonishing. I love the the basic colours and tones, also the lightening is just perfect.

Its the calm before the storm and the mood is very mysterious and gives off a fantasy feel, as if Poseidon is living under the waves.

It's one of those scenes that just seems like its once in a lifetime and you've captured perfectly.
What do you think?

You can describe it as stunningly as you can capture it.

So much movement and emotion in those turbulent waves that may at any time turn treacherous. I wonder at your feelings about nature Alexandre, you are aware of and respect its power while paying tribute to the visual spectacle. You worship at the altar of Beauty I think.

Parfaitement Lovecraftien, en effet !
La pause de 1s rend parfaitement justice aux mouvements de l'eau, qui deviennent une chevelure démoniaque, capable d'envelopper comme des bras ...
Magnifique image !

So silly if I confess I was afraid for a moment when i stared the picture with concentration?
Yes, nightmare. Wild waters is sth I'm scared of. So amazing work that the sensation that this picture inspires scaped from the screen.

Je n'ai pas les mots pour décrire la phénomène de cette photo, parce que je ne peux pas m'arrêter à la regarder pour les trouver. (...désolée, j'espère que cette construction soit correcte.) Mais les couleurs et le mouvement de l'eau sont magnifique. :heart:
