Moorland – Dark Moor

After the old wizard passed the Guardian of the Moor and entered the path to the White, Light Moor he returned to the junction and slept there for the night. He looked at the images in his magic cube and was happy about the stolen results.
In the morning when the fog was still covering the landscape he accessed the black, dark moor through another secret path.

Path to Dark Moor

The black dark moor was covered with fog and the silhouettes of the trees, which looked like marching giants and warriors frightens the old wizard. He quickly stole a few images of the scene and returned to his home and a hot cup of tea.

Thank you for your interest and patience.
In my next post I will explain what the “Moorland Photography Concept” is all about.

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.

Perfect Cloud

Perfect Cloud

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!

The National Park Wadden Sea

World Heritage and National Park. The coastline of North Germany. Wadden Sea or Wattenmeer. No big waves, a flat coastline, no rocks… but open space. As a photographer you always look for some interest in the foreground. So I am happy to find something like a fence. A fence into the sea? Now you have to know some additional facts to understand this. At our coastline, we have separate beaches for people with dogs and with no dogs. Sometimes the beaches are separated by a fence. Because of the flat coast line it would be easy to walk around the fence. And here is the solution. The fence is built into the sea. That makes it difficult to walk around the fence without getting your feet wet.
No… we have no other problems over here.
Hope you will still enjoy my image.
It is a long exposure using a LEE big stopper and a ND hard grad (0.6 / 2 stops) filter.

PS: I posted a similar image a while ago in color.

Happy days,
Reinhold

Dartmoor National Park – one of my favorite places in England. Unfortunately it was raining the whole day. We were wet and cold when we came to this magic place. I wonder how it would look like with a bit of soft light on the trees and rocks. After that we had a delicious tea and scones. What more to expect! May be to be there next year at sunrise or sunset? Plans are looking good! Happy Days! Reinhold

Another image of my “Minimalism” series. Flowers are not my favorite subject. But I bought this one when I saw it and captured it at home. I did the post processing in Lightroom and Photoshop. And when my wife came home, I had a little surprise waiting for her. 🙂
