Snapshots of today (iPhone)
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
Hansel and Gretel
Hansel and Gretel got lost in the forest,
It was so dark and so bitterly cold.
They came to a fine little gingerbread house.
Who could be the lord of this little house?
Yoo-hoo! Here comes an old witch!
She lures the children into the gingerbread house.
She appears quite friendly, but oh Hansel, what trouble!
She wants to bake them as brown as bread in the oven.
But when the witch looks into the oven,
She was pushed by Hansel and little Gretel.
The witch must bake, the children return home.
Now, the tale of Hansel and Gretel is over.
Found this one in our garden today. Couldn’t easily find a composition that worked. Hope you like this closeup. Happy days. Reinhold
Today I spent some time working on one of my images from my archive. I captured it last autumn. While I was working on it, that scene became one of my favorite images of 2019. It shows these lovely autumn birch trees and their vibrant color. I think I captured the peak of autumn in the North of Germany with this one and one which represents our local moor the best.
Happy days. Stay healthy and safe. Reinhold
Gray, dull, cold and rainy weather… I needed some colours in my life. So I sat down and create some abstracts for me and you. 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.
Happy days. Reinhold
Moorland – a small mysterious piece of land in the North. It is made up of a magic triangle. A lake, a black, dark moor and a white, light moor. No humans live there, just deer, foxes, birds and insects. Mmmmmh… no humans? Once in a while an old wizard walks into this area… trying to steal pictures of the landscape and wildlife with his magic cube.
But so far he couldn’t get past the guardian of the moor.
He doesn’t know the secret phrase. Do you know the phrase to get into Moorland? (to be continued)
Happy days. Reinhold
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,
I don’t know why, but I love sunflowers, and I just have this vivid memory of being in a field of sunflowers and how they felt like trees. They felt so tall.
This is an abstract created from a colorful ad sign in Berlin. For those of you who live in Berlin or have visited Berlin it is easier. The word has something to do with inspiration, creativity, … Happy days. Reinhold
