This morning at our lake. A fisherman is leaving the harbour heading towards the other side of the lake. No expensive camera. No prime lens. No time to think about composition. Just my iPhone. Capturing one moment in time. Happy days. Reinhold
Landscape photography and dog walking. Do they go together well? I think no… or yes if you know the traps. Over the years I created a habit which a landscape photographer should always optimize. I scan everything in front, I often turn around to see things from a different angle. I look to the left and to the right. I step forward and back to finalize my composition. Boomer was always watching me doing this. I didn’t recognize that he was developing the same habit. He started to think that I was scanning the surrounding to detect enemies early. He started to become aware and alerted of other people walking or jogging by, bicycles, cars… and other dogs. I created myself a problem. With the help of a fantastic dog trainer, I slowly return to normal. I use a marker word and clicker and focus at him while we walk. I think we will be fine very soon. If you are a landscape photographer and you plan to get a dog… watch out. Don’t fall into the same trap. Boomer is definitely worth any effort to get him back to normal. We joined an obedience rally team which helps a lot to train him to accept my habits as a landscape photographer. Now we are communicating at the same level with the same meanings. Autumn is coming and we have to prepare ourselves for various photography trips. Stay safe and healthy. Happy days. Reinhold and Boomer.
Boomer and I found a new spot for our daily walks. Happy days. Reinhold & Boomer
Happy days. Reinhold
Me and Boomer are back online. You can expect new posts from us. He is back to normal. Running around, playing and walking and having fun. See you soon… walking my dog Boomer. Happy days. Reinhold
I will be offline for a few days. Boomer (my dog) has to face an operation tomorrow morning. I hope everything will be fine. But I am pretty nervous. Stay safe and happy days to you. Reinhold
From my archive: An evening walk in the moor. Happy days. Reinhold
Hey folks, how are you! It is raining all day long. No long walks, no action. Just brainwork. Search games, learning commands and some paper rolls to destroy. Boring. But we will visit the local Christmas market this evening. If the rain stops for an hour or two. See you soon with updates from my walks. Happy days!
A few hot days. > 30° C / 90° F. No rain.
The rain started last night. At 2 am. It rained the whole night.
When I got out this morning to shoot this image I was wet within minutes. Not because it was still raining. No… the rain had stopped. But humidity was extremely high.
I had to convince myself that it was okay to get wet feet and wet clothes. Next time I see Michelangelo I will have a word with him.
Happy days. Reinhold
I just opened a new section in my online gallery. Cityland. The first 3 galleries contain images of Berlin. During the next days and weeks more images of Berlin, Hamburg and Frankfurt will be added. If you are in the first gallery, just click on the “Door” icon to “walk” into the next gallery. Happy days. Reinhold
My christmas / advent calendar is divided into 3 sections:
Day 1-8: mimic the objects in the frame with the day no
Day 9-16: Moorland – images of my new photography concept
Day 17-24: Winter photography
Section 1 is complete. This is the first image of section 2. Hope you enjoy it!
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.
Happy days. Reinhold
