probably my last landscape photo

… unmarried. ๐Ÿ™‚
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 … ๐Ÿ™‚


the night of the owls

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! ๐Ÿ™‚
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 ….
