A few hot days. > 30° C / 90° F. No rain. The rain started last night. At 2 am. It rained the whole night. When I got out this morning to shoot this image I was wet within minutes. Not because it was still raining. No… the rain had stopped. But humidity was extremely high. I had to convince myself that it was okay to get wet feet and wet clothes. Next time I see Michelangelo I will have a word with him.
A new morning in North Germany. Hot days, cold nights. Ideal for mist and fog. I hope autumn will be stunning and awesome this year. I really need a motivation boost to dive into landscape photography again.
If I could save time in a bottle… 10 seconds were enough to save this time in an image. Already pretty cold in the morning. Fog is slowly creeping through the landscape. I guess autumn is coming. Hurra. The “green” time is over. It is time to take the dust of my gear, get my rucksack and head out of the door. Catching time.
As landscape lovers that should not be a difficult question to answer. Nature and therefor our future has to come first. No country and no single person. And definitely not me. We avoid plastic where we can, we save water where we can and many other things which should be obvious to a human being. And we enjoy nature. And we try to infect people around us to do the same. Hope you like my poster design from today.
If you got nothing in the foreground, nothing in the middle and just a horizon line in the background you have nothing left to lose… so I took an image of the wet sand reflecting the sunset. We are still having an endless period of bad weather, cold with lots of wind and rain and gray skies. Not ideal for landscape photography. Hopefully my design will brighten up your day and will create a smile on your face while you are listening to the music. Happy days. Reinhold
This is one of the reasons why I always carry a “walking stick” with me when I go into the moor. If it is cold and wet you can see the network of player #1. If it is dark or sunny but dry weather you don’t. And they don’t stop at the regular tracks through the moor. I always use my stick a bit ahead of my face. Otherwise I soon will be part of the network… and without a Facebook, Instagram or Twitter account I am not really a “network” guy. But without all these networks in my face I am quite happy exploring my Moorland.
Today I finished my design for the upcoming art craft market in June. If you want to support this activity of local artists, please follow this link to my homepage.
A little bit of “traffic” will help to find us with the keyword “Kunsthandwerkermarkt Bad Zwischenahn” in search engines. Happy days! Reinhold
During my workshops and tours we also touch pano shoots. Obviously not an easy exercise. We often have trees and bushes in our composition and the ground is pretty unstable, often wet and muddy. I have created a series of “5” (tips) cards (also for my own memory) which I carry with me and which I handout to the members of my party. May be they could be useful for you as well. Best printed in 4×6” format using your local printer and stored in your camera bag. Happy days. Reinhold
