Another image of my “Fiction Series”. Location of the beach and beach chair is the coast resort Schillig in the National Park Wadden Sea. My famous puppet of my “Puppets Series” has been captured at a fashion fair in Frankfurt.
Early in the morning – the mist vanishes in the background, a transient moment. I like this type of weather… but it is usually restricted to autumn. Pah…only a few months to go and then my camera and me are ready again… for these transient moments.
This is image #3 of 4 of my series: Minimalism

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.

Can you see my heartbeat? Strong wind in today’s weather forecast. Come on over to me and let us get ready. Let us fly with the upcoming wind. To new borders and new limits. Let us hear the sound of the wind in my sails and feel the energy of the speed and motion.

18:50. Just finished a light dinner. Looking out of the window, there was fantastic light in the sky. A stunning sunset was on it’s way. Sunset was expected to be at 19:15. 30 minutes to go (drive). I picked up my gear and tripod and jumped into the car, heading for the nearby lake (10-15 minutes drive). I arrived at 19:05 at the parking lot by the lake. I rushed to the platform (new location) at the sailing boat club and set up my stuff. Tripod, adapter, Fuji X-T1, lens adapter, filter holder, big stopper + ND grad, cable release. Looked for the optimal focus point, f11, bulb mode. By then it was 19:15. More clouds showed up during this time. Ready for the first 90 sec. exposure. Too dark. Next one. 120 sec. Still too dark. 240 sec. Looked ok on the small screen of the X-T1. Turned the camera from right to left. Other composition. Where is the focus point? Ahhh, found it. Next shot. 300 sec. Too dark. Next one. 360 sec. Looked ok. It is over. No light left. 5 images. Lesson learned. Be in time. I forgot to change the aperture from 11 to 8 to 5.6 rather than enhancing the time. Next time I will be prepared, focused and in time.
Hope you still enjoy the last minute images. Have a nice weekend.
