Today I spent some time working on one of my images from my archive. I captured it last autumn. While I was working on it, that scene became one of my favorite images of 2019. It shows these lovely autumn birch trees and their vibrant color. I think I captured the peak of autumn in the North of Germany with this one and one which represents our local moor the best.
I captured this image beginning of November in one of our local moors in the morning before sunrise when the fog was still in the air. It was difficult to get to this position and to find a suitable position for my tripod. I used my Fuji X-T1 / 18-55 kit zoom / f9 / 1/60 sec and a ND grad (3 stops) filter to balance the brighter sky against the darker foreground. 10 sec timer. Happy days. Reinhold
Autumn leaves the North. Only a few trees are still in their beautiful dress of autumn leaves in vivid colors. After an exceptional summer we had an awesome autumn. Now I am looking forward to see some snow soon. Hopefully the year ends like it started. Exceptional.
The old wizard stood in front of the Guardian of the Moor and said the secret phrase: Intriguing… Nevermoor. The Guardian opened the gates to the moor and the old wizard came to a junction opening a path to the white, light moor and another one to the black, dark moor. For today he decided to follow the hidden path to the white, light moor.
Following this path he arrived at a beautiful viewpoint and took out his magic cube. He stole 8 images of the landscape and created a wide overview of the white, light moor.
After that the light disappeared and the old wizard was a bit tired. Coming back to the junction he decided to steal some images of the black, dark moor tomorrow.
Moorland – a small mysterious piece of land in the North. It is made up of a magic triangle. A lake, a black, dark moor and a white, light moor. No humans live there, just deer, foxes, birds and insects. Mmmmmh… no humans? Once in a while an old wizard walks into this area… trying to steal pictures of the landscape and wildlife with his magic cube.
But so far he couldn’t get past the guardian of the moor.
He doesn’t know the secret phrase. Do you know the phrase to get into Moorland? (to be continued)
Today I started a new and exiting approach of presenting images to my clients. At least for me… new and exciting.
This is a sample: the wall above shows the last 4 images I posted on this blog. They all belong into the gallery “autumn”. I want to create the feeling as if the viewer is standing in a gallery looking at framed or unframed images in different sizes or may be different materials.
