Wet feet

RSP - Reinhold Staden Photography - Get your feet wet

Sometimes you have to get your feet wet. I was desperate to reach the position for the above composition. There was no trail or route to reach it. Except… walking into the lake. No problem. I was wearing my wellies and walked into the lake. Too eager to reach this position I suddenly felt water making its way into the wellies and I felt my feet getting cold and wet. I was still not at the position I wanted to reach. At that point it was pointless to care any more. I continued walking into the lake. Wellies filled up with water I walked until the water was “above” my knees. Made the shot and walked back. What a feeling and sound to walk. Sitting at a dry spot at the beach I tried to get the water out of my wellies by lifting my legs. May be not the best idea. But finally it was cold and wet only and I continued the shoot. After 30 minutes the sound of walking with wet feet disappeared and the feet felt warm but still wet. When I reached the car I swapped my wellies with my walking shoes. After a short drive home I walked into the shower… to get my feet wet. But this time with hot water. Heaven!

  1. Sehr schöne Bildaufteilung, die für mich durch den Horizont und die lange Reflexion der Sonne entsteht. Obwohl das Bild ja nicht sehr viele Objekte hat, macht es gerade durch dies Aufteilung Spaß, viel in diesem Foto zu entdecken.

    Hey, und ganz nebenbei hast du auch noch ‘Nessie’ eingefangen. Glückwunsch. 🙂

    LG, Markus

    • Hehe, nasse Füsse in Gummistiefeln. Ein Geräusch aus einen Sci-Fi Film. Du hast recht… Nessie gibt es scheinbar überall. In Schottland habe ich Nessie nicht gefunden / gesehen. Da muss ich an die Bornhorster Seen fahren und Nessie zu finden. Freut mich das Dir mein “durchnässtes” Bild gefällt. Im Moment der Aufnahme habe ich mehr an das Wasser in meinen Stiefeln, als an die Komposition gedacht. Aber es ging ja gerade noch mal gut. Liebe Grüsse. Reinhold

      • Du, mit meinen trockenen Füßen hier zu hause hatte ich eine 100%gen Betrachtergenuss, ohne Einschränkung. Trotzdem Hut ab für dich und deinen Einsatz. Reinhold, du weißt doch, die Fotografie ist eine grausame Geliebte! 🙂

    • Hihi, yes Laura… no landscape photography anymore… but adventure photography. LOL. Indiana Reinhold lost in the wild lakes of North Germany. 🙂 It was fun. These images now have a story. I am still working on the “beauties of the lake”. Another reason for getting my feet wet. But it will take a few moments. Can’t make up my mind which way to go in post processing. Have a nice week and I saw your post on my iPad. I will finish my commenting and then I pop over to your image. Looks great! Reinhold
