Dandelion… or little paratroopers of light

Inspired by Agnes blog post, I took my camera and a tripod and drove with my bicycle to a nearby field to shoot some dandelion (Pusteblumen). Now… it is windy up here in the north of Germany. The dandelions were in motion, nearly all the time. I had to wait for the wind to calm down. Then a tried to get the “lucky shot”. It was next to impossible to get theses guys to stand still. But I had to take these photos today. I think tomorrow they will be gone… like little paratroopers of light.

Man at work

I took this shot with my Fuji X100 (f 8, 1/1800 sec, ISO 200, 0EV) walking the beach with this lovely sunset. Color FX Pro (Sunlight filter) and Silver FX 2 (Black and White). My wife was at my side and was grateful for not having to wait for the “perfect moment”. Normally I am in the position of the “Man at Work”, but this time, I enjoyed just this perfect moment on the beach and still taking some photographs.
