Lucie Debelkova Travel & Landscape Photography from over 90 countries around the world, particularly from Middle East region - Yemen, Iran, Kuwait, Oman, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Qatar, Bahrain, Syria, Jordan and others. Large collections from Asia (from far and distant Mongolia to super modern HongKong) & Europe (from historical marvels of Prague to the most northen point of Europe - North Cape - where the sun never sets during few months a year).
The biggest selection of my work can be always found on my personal web :

My philosophy is to take positive photographs highlighting the best a place has to offer, whether that is the vibrancy of the landscapes, the architectural grandeur of ancient monuments or modern architecture, the warmth and friendliness of the people or the magic of my favorite part of day - Twilight - the Blue hour.
The blue hour, coming from a "French expression "l'heure bleue," refers to twilight, the period each morning and evening where there is neither full daylight nor complete darkness. The time is considered special because of the quality of the light."
I enjoy capturing places in an eye-catching and colourful way; from the very old traditional or very modern places of the Middle East region to bustling backstreets of Asia to the spectacular cities of Europe. My collection of images focused primarily on low light scenes; from iconic travel destinations to lesser known places and the people who inhabit them.
Compositionally I aim for clarity and often simplicity to communicate my ideas and look for balance wherever possible. I seek out spectacular and vivid light to create a sense of wonder. Colour is a tonic to me and something I actively seek out.
The photographs on this site show all the success I have had with my images but none of the failures. For every sucessful trip where there has been good light there a 5 times as many that produce very little in the way of images. Landscape & travel photography is hard work and requires a significant amount of time and dedication.
