Alien in Berlin

For the last years I lived in a remote location in North Germany close to the coast. I have a beautiful lake, moors, woodlands and lots of animals in my neighbourhood.
And… not many people or tourists. It is usually very quiet and peaceful.
And now… Berlin.
Packed with people and tourists, noisy and traffic… 24h a day.
Thousands of restaurants and shops, memorials, architecture and many green areas where you can stop and rest for a few minutes, before you jump into action again. It is overwhelming, fascinating and exhausting.
I feel like an alien in Berlin. A landscape photographer trying to
create images in street photography and urban landscapes.
First thing I did, I left my tripod in my room. Second thing, I used my Fuji X100 for most of my images.
It is perfect for street photography. I plan long exposures and urban landscapes with my tripod. But this is next on my project list. In the moment I try to adopt to the new location. I wander through the streets of Berlin, mouth open, and try to capture my first impressions.
Stay tuned to read more about the advantages of an alien in Berlin. In the moment it still is the place in the world where I want to be. 1st week is over. Let’s see what’s in the basket for the next weeks.
The gallery shows a selection of my images so far.

Awakening of the moorland

Slowly but surely the moorland is awakening. You can hear it “breathing” if you walk by. The colors are dominated by red and orange and the white color of the birches fits nicely. Next week the weather forecast shows a lot of sunshine for this area and the moors. Happy days. Reinhold

I woke up late for this theme, but may be you too. So check out the other entries here: Awakening

Sweet 4

I remember I promised this. Model shooting details from last year.
Last year I did my first shooting of 14 young Golden Retriever. The period to sell the images to their new owners is over now. These are my sweet 4 of the group. I hope I will have a second shoot this year. So much fun! Happy days. Reinhold

Tour: Dänikhorster Moor

Never tried to capture the Dänikhorster Moor (Entrance Area) as a whole. I shot 10-12 individual images of each location and created 4 panoramic images. To shoot about 40 images was quite a challenge in the short time frame of the sun rising. But everything worked out quiet well. Hope you will enjoy the “tour” of the moor. Happy days.

Second day of our trip to the Baltic Sea. East Germany. An island attached to the baltic sea coast line. Poel Island. We have no rocks in the National Park Wadden Sea / North Sea … at our local access points (at home). But they always create some foreground interest in a composition. It was a moment of silence, frozen silence. Happy days! Reinhold

Weathered

This morning I missed the ground fog in our local moor by just 1 hour. But I still like to be there at any time of the day. In 5 years all these trees will be gone… weathered. Until then it is my favorite “go to” location. For more responses to the theme, please click Weathered. Happy days. Reinhold

A magic purple Glow in the Fintlandsmoor in the North of Germany. One of my favorite nature resorts which I visit on a regular basis. It is a remote location. Very quiet and peaceful. A place full of light and energy. Happy days. Reinhold
