Run with fox and deer

The autumn season is near. The moors are changing their green for a colourful dress. The lakes are waiting for awesome sunsets with fog and mist. I think Boomer will look with eyes wide open when I wake him up in the middle of the night. He is old enough (18 months) to follow me to my photography spots. Now we have to wait for the season to start. All images are archived images of my tours from last year. Hopefully we can beat them as a the new team. Happy days. Reinhold & Boomer

Wait for me… I am on my way

Sounds of silence


Change of season. Summer is leaving and autumn is just round the corner. Many tourists and their dogs left the lake and it is much quieter than a few days ago. Hopefully it stays like this for a while. I am looking forward to an awesome autumn season with lots of fog and vivid colours. 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

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.

Wet feet

RSP - Reinhold Staden Photography - Get your feet wet

Sometimes you have to get your feet wet. I was desperate to reach the position for the above composition. There was no trail or route to reach it. Except… walking into the lake. No problem. I was wearing my wellies and walked into the lake. Too eager to reach this position I suddenly felt water making its way into the wellies and I felt my feet getting cold and wet. I was still not at the position I wanted to reach. At that point it was pointless to care any more. I continued walking into the lake. Wellies filled up with water I walked until the water was “above” my knees. Made the shot and walked back. What a feeling and sound to walk. Sitting at a dry spot at the beach I tried to get the water out of my wellies by lifting my legs. May be not the best idea. But finally it was cold and wet only and I continued the shoot. After 30 minutes the sound of walking with wet feet disappeared and the feet felt warm but still wet. When I reached the car I swapped my wellies with my walking shoes. After a short drive home I walked into the shower… to get my feet wet. But this time with hot water. Heaven!
