Zero Point

Zero Point

Yesterday, while I was shooting the Formula 18 boat race at our local lake, I took a rest at the shore of the lake. After a while I saw these lines of blue water and light with the duck as a zero point. It was so nice to have this warm and sunny day after all the bad weather in the last months. I really enjoyed it.

“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”
— Elliott Erwitt

This image has been taken at the coastline of the National Park Wadden Sea.

After Dinner

RSP - Reinhold Staden Photography - Evanescent
Evanescent – Soon passing out of sight, memory, or existence; quickly fading or disappearing…

After Dinner – we had seafood, wine and candle light…and suddenly she was gone. What is left is the smell of the ocean, the wind and the sound of the approaching waves. I have to wake up. Because who actually has a dinner in the wadden sea?

May be you will find memories of other dinner parties here: Evanescent

Droplets Highway

I have captured this image last week. I was scouting a well known area in the woodlands nearby. Couldn’t find anything spectacular. So I was looking for some intimate compositions. I found these three leaves overlapping each other. And I love droplets. So… here we go. Droplets Highway!

Heritage Wadden Sea

I sometimes call this our “coast of nothingness”. No rocks, no cliffs, no waves, no foreground interest. And could you believe that? They have taken away the remains of this old pier and built a concrete stone “wave breaker” into the wadden sea. What are they doing? Killing the last pieces of interest? I felt miserable when I saw it last weekend. 😦

WADDEN SEA

The Wadden Sea is the largest unbroken system of intertidal sand and mud flats in the world. The site covers the Dutch Wadden Sea Conservation Area, the German Wadden Sea National Parks of Lower Saxony and Schleswig-Holstein, and most of the Danish Wadden Sea maritime conservation area. It is a large, temperate, relatively flat coastal wetland environment, formed by the intricate interactions between physical and biological factors that have given rise to a multitude of transitional habitats with tidal channels, sandy shoals, sea-grass meadows, mussel beds, sandbars, mudflats, salt marshes, estuaries, beaches and dunes. The area is home to numerous plant and animal species, including marine mammals such as the harbour seal, grey seal and harbour porpoise. Wadden Sea is one of the last remaining large-scale, intertidal ecosystems where natural processes continue to function largely undisturbed.

Halfpipe of God

Church: Halfpipe of God

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.

Reflections are always reflecting my type of landscape photography. I am fascinated by the amazing light and stunning shapes reflecting in water. These images have been captured at a local lake with my Fuji X100 and X-T1. Converted into black and white with Lightroom and Photoshop.

Across the Moor

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.

Winds of Light

Winds of Light

Yesterday in the Fintlandsmoor. It is still cold and windy. The rain had stopped for a day. The moor blooms. It was a quiet moment. A mild wind created patterns of light in the blooming grass. I heard only the wind and some birds in the distance. A perfect moment to stop for a moment or two. A am currently working on a new video. It will show the creation of this image and some others. I will see if I get this finished by the weekend. Happy days! Reinhold

This image is part of my series: Develop my personal style

January 2015. Storm “Felix” on its way to hit the coast of North Germany. I wanted to capture those amazing cloud formations. In the top left side of the view finder I saw this aircraft passing the storm. Actually I think the aircraft was flying above the storm field. But in this moment it looked a bit “dangerous” to me.
