Jetty

My favorite jetty at our lake. Not always accessible. It is the end piece of jetty with sailing boats. Access is restricted to “Opening Hours”. They open later and close earlier than sunrise and sunset. This time they owner stayed a bit longer… fishing. Lucky me! I asked him if I could enter the jetty to capture a few images. After a friendly approval I shot 3 long exposures. This one is for a duration of 30 seconds at f6.4 using a LEE big stopper. (the others where 20 and 10 seconds)

It is also the only one which includes the rope as a foreground interest. What a difference to those without the rope. Happy days. Reinhold

Wouldn’t it be awesome if one could paint an image like this?
I captured the underlying image in Amsterdam and stumbled upon it today while I was cleaning up my files. Always nice to go back to these older images and to play around with them.

Happy days.

I left Berlin for the weekend and drove back home. We had beautiful weather. Sunshine and very mild temperatures at our lake. I sat on the terrace and watched the clouds passing by. While I was watching I asked myself how would a perfect cloud look like? I sat there for quite a while and captured this small, cool looking, perfect cloud. Now I am back in Berlin… and I can still see it passing by.

Happy and sunny days!

Tempodrom: founded by Irene Moessinger, it opened in 1980 next to the Berlin Wall on the west side of Potsdamer Platz, housed in a large circus tent. After several changes of location it is now housed in a permanent building in the Kreuzberg neighborhood.

That’s been one of my mantras – focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.

Tomorrow it will melt like ice in the sunshine. But today the wind still creates some beautiful ice art at our lake. This easter wind will remain for another night. And tomorrow we will have sunshine and temperatures above the freezing point. Happy days. Reinhold

3 more images of the ice art at our lake yesterday. Temperature is back to normal and all of the ice is gone. One of my rules of photography. You have to be in the right spot at the right time… and hopefully carry a camera in your rucksack! Happy days. Reinhold

Freezing cold, wind, waves, sunshine… and nature at our local lake created some really magic ice art. I just returned from the lake and I am still in the process of viewing and selecting images. May be some more to follow tomorrow. Until then. Happy days. Reinhold
