Happiness, true happiness, is an inner quality. It is a state of mind. If your mind is at peace, you are happy. If your mind is at peace, but you have nothing else, you can be happy. If you have everything the world can give – pleasure, possessions, power – but lack peace of mind, you can never be happy. – Dada Vaswani
Water is always a support or a healing thing apart from, you know, love or peace of mind. – Nastassja Kinski
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.
A new morning in North Germany. Hot days, cold nights. Ideal for mist and fog. I hope autumn will be stunning and awesome this year. I really need a motivation boost to dive into landscape photography again.
If I could save time in a bottle… 10 seconds were enough to save this time in an image. Already pretty cold in the morning. Fog is slowly creeping through the landscape. I guess autumn is coming. Hurra. The “green” time is over. It is time to take the dust of my gear, get my rucksack and head out of the door. Catching time.
Added more sky on Photoshop to the top image. More breathing space for the poles. Stopped letters “Area 51” from fighting against the poles. Added “51” to the sign in the bottom left corner. Now the UFO is flying towards the car. Added a little bit of blurred, red color to the breaking lights of the car. Added a bit of fog/smoke around the space ship. Cleaned the image up from distracting objects. The road starts as a leading line in the bottom right corner. Changed the font of the quote. Changed the crop to 5:4.
You can find the “old” version at the end of the post.
