No summer this year but often some cool clouds … 🙂
… unmarried. 🙂
Friday is the big day! I must say, I’m already a bit nervous.
Little story about the photo:
I stood there watching the sky after the rain. As I say the rainbow I took a view through the viewfinder and realized that 24mm aren’t wide angle enough for that rainbow. Aaargh!! I ran back to my car like crazy, dropped the wrong lens, grabbed the 17mm and ran back to the place where I took this photo. Fortunately, the rainbow was still there. Phew!
Well, that’s whatI love in landscape photography. Sometimes you only have a few seconds for a photo and you have to concentrate 100% to do your best. I’m sure the world could break down behind me, I wouldn’t realize it in such a moment. Though that would be a good photo as well … 🙂
I dedicate this picture to my buddy Martin (kwerfeldein) who’s been in hospital since Monday because of gallstones. Seem like they’ll remove his gallbladder tomorrow.
I wish you a quick recovery, my friend! Cheer up!!
This is a long exposure with ND-filter taken at the beach of St. Peter Ording, North Sea.
You can also find this photo in the book “Extreme Exposure”, published by David Nightingale (chromasia.com).
Here are some shots:
Thank you, David. 🙂
This is a night shot! 130 sec. exposure time. I took during the recent full-moon night at 11 p.m. Though it was somewhat bright, it was kinda scary to stand there all alone on the field. There was a dead silence except some little owls screeching in the distance. Goosebumps and wide opened eyes guaranteed!!! Hehe! 🙂
But somehow I love that feeling … alone in the dark, blind, helpless, being at the mercy of nature. It shows me how small and weak we are … I just remember last year when I spend a whole night all alone on a mountain in the Black Forest. All alone with the owls circling above my head ….
