Wetlands of gold part II

Tuesday, 10 September 2019

Time for some more (misty) morning impressions of "my" wetlands. I always deeply enjoy to stroll around there only with my camera and mounted telephoto lens in my hands and no particular plan or intention in mind. As long as I go out without an expectations, I will always experience something rewarding. All of these pictures have also been taken already back in 2018. May the fog be with you ;)

A Great Egret approaching as the rising sun sets the fog on fire.

This subadult Roe Deer is following its mother, which already crossed the stream.

The first light hits this beautiful big wetland tree and the egret, while there's still shadow in the background.

I published this one already in my 2018 recap. Definitely a moment to remember.

Pretty interesting clouds creating great patterns on the morning skies.

A very peaceful moment during this eye contact encounter.

Wetlands of gold part I

Tuesday, 3 September 2019

As most of you may already know, one of my favorite easy-to-reach photography locations is a particular area in the Traun-Danube Wetlands in Upper Austria. And since I visite this place quite frequently, I already experienced a wide range of different conditions there. In my upcoming two blog entries, I would like to display a handful of shots I took there in the early morning, mostly during misty conditions, which are for sure one of the most exciting and photogenic ones. And if I'm lucky enough to encounter one of the wetland residents at the right time every now and then, things are perfect.

I was probably out there already about 100 times, but I only experienced a stunning scenery like this once.

What a wonderful calm place to spend a few hours before breakfast.

At the right time of the year, the very first sunlight makes its way through the trees and bushes and when there's also mist on the water and no cloud in the sky, the air can be illuminated with a quite surreal red.

A little glittering right before the sunlight will finally lighten up all the mist.

One of my favorite and certainly most exciting encounters there. Taken without the use of a hide, like actually all of my images.

Liquid souls part II

Wednesday, 21 August 2019

Here we go with the second part of my long overdue spring flower reflection images. Unfortunately this year I couldn't take images of scenes like these. On the one hand due to our stay in New Zealand and on the other hand because of the fact, that there was a dog training place established right at the edge of this particular forest, where I could find these perfect combination of flowers, water and light. Although forests in Austria are free to enter for everyone and there is neither a sign nor a fence, these "very well trained police dogs" are running around in the woods free. I had a really horrible encounter with two of them back in 2018 and I'm still happy I survived unscathed while the dogs were "just doing what they're trained for" (I still dread to think what could have happened when I would have been there with our little son for example). Now I'm actually forced to stay away from this beloved area. This is a real pity, because this place was by far the best spot I know to capture moments like you can see below and it's also located so close to my home, which gave me the opportunity to go there every day in spring as soon as the conditions were interesting. But unfortunatley I really don't dare to go there again and lie myself down on the forest floor to take pictures ... But enough on that, that's another sad story. Enjoy the images!

Mesmerizing glitter on the moving water surface.

Defocused Pilewort dancing with the reflections.

A good example for the high contrast between the harsh sunlight and the dark forest shadows.

One of my 2018 favorites.

The reflection of the sun appears as a fairylike creature on the stream.

Frozen movement.

Just the shadow of a little Wood Anemone.

Hit by some spotlight.

Although the left flower is out of focus it appears sharp as a shadow.
