I captured this image (these images) in the Fintlandsmoor. I used a leveled tripod, a 14mm lens and shot 9 overlapping shots to create this panorama. I created the basic panorama image in Lightroom and did the rest of the work in Photoshop. The image has a size of 10.000 x 4000 px.

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!

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

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

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.

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

Yesterday. Early in the morning. In the moor. The rising sun is throwing flames of light at this tree. It only lasts for a minute. I nearly missed that moment. The routine of setting up the tripod, mounting camera and lens, attaching the filter holder, mounting the filter and doing all the settings works better in these days. It’s all about practice. A few months ago I would have missed that moment.

Image 17/20 –  it is a German word. It is made from “wandern”, which means walking and “Lust” desire. For me it means discovering new places. I feel Wanderlust this weekend. Smiles. Reinhold

In Love

Image 7/20 – In Love… storchs in the wetlands. I was lucky the day before. I came to a place packed with storchs. I own no long lens. So I had to go with my 18-55mm zoom hunting the fast flying birds. Used the new focus features of my X-T1 for the first time. It was fun and may be I go back on the weekend. Practice… practice… practice…

The remaining images are dedicated to Amy. I was inspired by her “birds in the air” shots. So I hope I am closing the gap between her skills shooting birds in motion a little bit. She is still master of the game! Go and check out her birdies. 🙂

Wetland Fog

Image 5/20 – This shot has been taken early in the morning in the wetlands. Fuji X-T1 and LEE Filter System to balance the light. This was one of the last shots into the sunlight. I stopped doing that. When I see a nice sunset / sunrise today I take the shot before or after the sun dominates the sky. Or I turn round and take a shot in the opposite direction. The light is much nicer / softer. In this case it still works because of the fog over the wetlands. It is magic to be there at this time of the day.
