Zero Point

Zero Point

Yesterday, while I was shooting the Formula 18 boat race at our local lake, I took a rest at the shore of the lake. After a while I saw these lines of blue water and light with the duck as a zero point. It was so nice to have this warm and sunny day after all the bad weather in the last months. I really enjoyed it.

After Dinner

Evanescent – Soon passing out of sight, memory, or existence; quickly fading or disappearing…

After Dinner – we had seafood, wine and candle light…and suddenly she was gone. What is left is the smell of the ocean, the wind and the sound of the approaching waves. I have to wake up. Because who actually has a dinner in the wadden sea?

May be you will find memories of other dinner parties here: Evanescent

Reflections are always reflecting my type of landscape photography. I am fascinated by the amazing light and stunning shapes reflecting in water. These images have been captured at a local lake with my Fuji X100 and X-T1. Converted into black and white with Lightroom and Photoshop.

Winds of Light

Winds of Light

Yesterday in the Fintlandsmoor. It is still cold and windy. The rain had stopped for a day. The moor blooms. It was a quiet moment. A mild wind created patterns of light in the blooming grass. I heard only the wind and some birds in the distance. A perfect moment to stop for a moment or two. A am currently working on a new video. It will show the creation of this image and some others. I will see if I get this finished by the weekend. Happy days! Reinhold

Busy week this week. Digging my way further into Equine Photography. Lesson learnt: Gear matters, but… to start in this area of photography it doesn’t have to be top of the list. I bought the cheapest “training” lens ever. The Fujinon XC 50-230 consumer zoom. It even comes with image stabilization. It has a price tag of 249 €. When it comes to low light conditions I have to increase the ISO beyond 800 / 1600. This is not ideal. But if the sun shines and the light is OK it delivers quite good results. At least for a start. Image 1,3 and 4 are unedited files, image 2 has been edited to eliminate some dirt spots in the face. Enjoy the weekend.  Forecast of sunshine on Sunday in my area. 🙂

Image 11/20 – Hansel and Gretel taken by Surprise… I was surprised to find this old barn at the lake near to where I live. I never walked this road before. But I definitely will visit this place again.

Dreaming… I saw me walking through the moor, the wetlands of the North… moving on into a world without fear, hate, politics, war, anger… I must be dreaming. Afraid to wake up. My dream will be continued tomorrow. See you there!
