Intimate views

Fortunately we have a contact ban only. So far. We can still leave our homes (supermarket, pharmacy, walking Boomer, walking alone or as a couple) but we have to avoid contact to other people. Usually pretty easy in our small, remote village. But sometimes difficult in our supermarket. But people still behave like responsible human beings (most of them). At least our local weather is playing on our side. Forecast looks pretty promising. I have positioned the grill on our terrace, checked the wine and meat stock, baked some fresh bread and will isolate ourselves as much as possible to our home and garden. Starting today (April 1) Boomer is not allowed to run free for a period of a few months. We are living in a nature resort and have to protect breeding birds.

I have ordered 2 macro rings for my Fuji. This will turn my kit zoom (18-55mm) into a type of macro lens. Reviews were promising. So I try to focus on macro photography for the next weeks and stay at home.
Hopefully we will get some plants and flowers in our garden to dig into macro photography.

Stay save my blogging friends where ever you are and try to enjoy life even under these weird conditions.
Happy days and smiles.

Dartmoor National Park – one of my favorite places in England. Unfortunately it was raining the whole day. We were wet and cold when we came to this magic place. I wonder how it would look like with a bit of soft light on the trees and rocks. After that we had a delicious tea and scones. What more to expect! May be to be there next year at sunrise or sunset? Plans are looking good! Happy Days! Reinhold

I’m fascinated by intimate landscapes. These are the subjects that many people might simply walk past. The PSD file has a dimension of 10,000 x 6,000 px and is optimized for large scale printing.

Image 3/20 – An old tree in the frozen wetlands at sunset last winter. No color (bronze) adjustments to this image. The effect has been created with a long exposure and a graduated filter using my LEE filter / my Fuji X-T1. Only minor adjustments in Lightroom.
