X-Files

Today is the 6th anniversary of my Fuji X-100. I used it for everything: street photography, landscape, architecture, nature, objects. I think this one will stay in my rucksack forever. I am still using it. But not as much as I should! I like the in camera black and white film simulation.

A reworked version of the “Rolling Hills” of Devon. Spectacular view and stunning landscape. Can’t beat that!

Rainbow Bridge

Mixed weather. Rain on one side, sunshine on the other side. While I was shooting this long exposure (180 sec) a rainbow appeared on the right side in the background for about 30 seconds. Enough to leave a trace in the image. A good start into your week! Smiles. Reinhold

I was lucky to meet 3 young men who were fishing at the lake. One of these guys positioned the net for me in the foreground. Very helpful!

Lighthouse (Fiction Series)

RSP - Reinhold Staden Photography - Lighthouse

Some of you know that I like to play around with Photoshop. Since I decided to concentrate at landscape photography there is no need and not much room left to create compositions in post. I start a “landscape fiction series” with this post. So… in between my regular landscape photography posts… I will create a Photoshop composition of 2 or more photographs I have taken.

This one is made of a lighthouse located in the harbour of Bremerhaven and sand dunes at the beach of Schillig. A lighthouse should have a beautiful spot at the coast.
