We had a very special winter at our lake this year. Periods of rain and wind were followed by periods of sunshine, extreme cold and blizzards from the East. I created a video with some impressions of the winter, our lake and some awesome animals I saw on my photo walks. Now we have spring and I am out trying to find images for my next video. Spring at the lake.
Just the obvious: the headline is in German: Winter am Zwischenahner Meer. am = at the. Happy days. Reinhold
3 more images of the ice art at our lake yesterday. Temperature is back to normal and all of the ice is gone. One of my rules of photography. You have to be in the right spot at the right time… and hopefully carry a camera in your rucksack! Happy days. Reinhold
I left home 1 hour before sunrise. It was still raining and most of the snow turned into wet, heavy snow. I wasn’t sure if I could make an image out of this. But I decided to go on and drove 5 minutes to my planned location. My journey ended in front of a fallen tree. No access by car. I had to walk for 1 mile through the moor to the moor lakes. It is a challenge in dry conditions. But I know this area and it was a save walk. I was hoping to get at least one decent image.
At the moor lake the weather actually decided to get worse. I spent another hour and tried to get my image of the day. In the end I took 4 images, packed my stuff and left to get a decent breakfast and a nice, hot cup of tea. On my short way home I decided that everyday out in nature is a good day. Happy days.

Fuji X-T1 images:
It is 7:00 in the morning. I am planning to visit the Fintlandsmoor. Trying to get some snowy images of the wetlands and moor lakes. There is some snow left. But I think it is more rain than snow. It will be a cold and wet experience. I will see it in a few minutes. And you will see it later this afternoon.
Winter has arrived. First snow in the Dänikhorster Moor. It is usually a very quiet place. The snow has further reduced the sounds of animals and birds. I only heard the barking of a fox in the distance. Hopefully the snow will stay until tomorrow morning. I am planning to visit the Fintlandsmoor and the moor lakes to capture some snowy wetlands early in the morning. Fingers crossed! 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.

Image 2/20 – This image has been taken in Dezember last year. A sunset and emerging fog on a cold winter afternoon. The fog remained at its position when I walked into this area. It felt like walking into white…
