If you got nothing in the foreground, nothing in the middle and just a horizon line in the background you have nothing left to lose… so I took an image of the wet sand reflecting the sunset. We are still having an endless period of bad weather, cold with lots of wind and rain and gray skies. Not ideal for landscape photography. Hopefully my design will brighten up your day and will create a smile on your face while you are listening to the music. Happy days. Reinhold
This is one of the reasons why I always carry a “walking stick” with me when I go into the moor. If it is cold and wet you can see the network of player #1. If it is dark or sunny but dry weather you don’t. And they don’t stop at the regular tracks through the moor. I always use my stick a bit ahead of my face. Otherwise I soon will be part of the network… and without a Facebook, Instagram or Twitter account I am not really a “network” guy. But without all these networks in my face I am quite happy exploring my Moorland.
Today I finished my design for the upcoming art craft market in June. If you want to support this activity of local artists, please follow this link to my homepage.
A little bit of “traffic” will help to find us with the keyword “Kunsthandwerkermarkt Bad Zwischenahn” in search engines. Happy days! Reinhold
It is getting colder in the North. First frozen leaves in frozen thin ice at our lake. I spent an hour walking my way to the village and back and enjoyed the cold, fresh air. Hopefully the weather stays like that. Enjoy whatever season you may have. Happy days. Reinhold
Autumn leaves the North. Only a few trees are still in their beautiful dress of autumn leaves in vivid colors. After an exceptional summer we had an awesome autumn. Now I am looking forward to see some snow soon. Hopefully the year ends like it started. Exceptional.
Sunrise in my local moor. Moorland. Fintlandsmoor. A magic piece of landscape just round the corner. I had two choices. Capture thick fog with minimal light or wait for the light which lightens the fog as well. I like dark and moody images but this time I decided to wait for the light, the colors in the sky.
Happy days and may the light be with you,
It is October. Nearly all tourists have left the coast line. The tide is coming and going. It is colder now, the wind is blowing from the North and nature is preparing for autumn and winter. Now I have this location of tranquility and silence nearly on my own. A creative and inspriring space for 6 months. The Nationalpark Wadden Sea.
I am thinking about a photography workshop during these months. Not me teaching photography but 4-5 photographers who like to exchange and share ideas and their way of photography with others. May be just enjoying the company of others who think and speak photography. 3 days in a location at our lake with tours to the lake, the moors and the National Park. Lots of photography. Good food and some drinks in the evening. I plan to hire a 9-seater van and would be the driver during these days. I know these places can be very challenging. Wind, rain, cold… but also blue skies and sunshine. Nearly unpredictable. But I would never run a workshop in the main season. Not sure if people would enjoy early starts, extreme conditions, long hikes and late evenings. That is why I always put this idea back into the “one of these days” folder.
This idea is in my “pipeline of things to do” for quiet a while. I should sit down, make a plan and come up with a concrete option. And get it out of this folder.
This is #1 of one of my 2018 photography projects. 2 images of 1 location. Focus is to show the same spot/object/person in 2 different compositions. This image has been taken in Krummhörn in the National Park Wadden Sea. The other side of the bay is already a different country. The Netherlands. Happy days. Reinhold
A church at the coast of North Germany. The sea resort Schillig in the National Park Wadden Sea has this quite modern church. It is located in the town center. The nickname is “Halfpipe of God”. The real name “St. Marien”. Pretty unusual compared to the more traditional churches in our area.
Across the Moor – for those of you who like to see a few of my landscape photography locations. The Fintlandsmoor is a very unique place and a beautiful nature resort in the district Ammerland in North Germany. Again filmed with my iPhone 5s. I have to get a decent video camera in one of these days. Awesome music by Ben Sound.
