“I wish that all of nature’s magnificence, the emotion of the land, the living energy of a place could be photographed.”
— Annie Leibovitz

“It’s weird that photographers spend years or even a whole lifetime, trying to capture moments that added together, don’t even amount to a couple of hours.”
— James Lalropui Keivom

Autumn Light

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

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

Sunrise and Fog

Sunrise and Fog

Sunrise in my local moor. Moorland. Fintlandsmoor. A magic piece of landscape just round the corner. I had two choices. Capture thick fog with minimal light or wait for the light which lightens the fog as well. I like dark and moody images but this time I decided to wait for the light, the colors in the sky.

Happy days and may the light be with you,

A winter morning… freezing cold… the mist is still floating over the marshland… you can already smell the coast and wadden sea. I have to move faster to reach the coastline before the fog is gone.

Wetland Fog

Image 5/20 – This shot has been taken early in the morning in the wetlands. Fuji X-T1 and LEE Filter System to balance the light. This was one of the last shots into the sunlight. I stopped doing that. When I see a nice sunset / sunrise today I take the shot before or after the sun dominates the sky. Or I turn round and take a shot in the opposite direction. The light is much nicer / softer. In this case it still works because of the fog over the wetlands. It is magic to be there at this time of the day.
