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

Jetty

My favorite jetty at our lake. Not always accessible. It is the end piece of jetty with sailing boats. Access is restricted to “Opening Hours”. They open later and close earlier than sunrise and sunset. This time they owner stayed a bit longer… fishing. Lucky me! I asked him if I could enter the jetty to capture a few images. After a friendly approval I shot 3 long exposures. This one is for a duration of 30 seconds at f6.4 using a LEE big stopper. (the others where 20 and 10 seconds)

It is also the only one which includes the rope as a foreground interest. What a difference to those without the rope. Happy days. Reinhold

First portrait shoot: Virginia

My (our) first portrait shoot ever. This time our story was “HAIR”. What an experience. We had so much fun during our first session. And we had no ideal conditions. Outdoor, in bright sunlight… using the Fuji X100F in ACROS mode. But at the end of our session we had 20 images for a new portfolio. We have already planned another project in 3 weeks. This time the theme will be “WIND”.  Autumn in North Germany is the ideal spot for that theme. Looking forward to that. Bye for now and happy days. Reinhold

Wouldn’t it be awesome if one could paint an image like this?
I captured the underlying image in Amsterdam and stumbled upon it today while I was cleaning up my files. Always nice to go back to these older images and to play around with them.

Happy days.
