Something different from the usual landscapes. Saw this barber shop during a late evening stroll, grabbed my phone so I could think about it at home. Hanging around at a closed shop late in the evening is a bit weird, so I wanted go back with a clear idea of what I wanted to do. Came back two days later with the neccessary equipment, set it up, snapped twice (you never know), and was gone in 5 minutes. :-)
Yes it’s a cliché, but it’s a cliché for a reason. The ship directly under the sun was a nice bonus. :-)
Polder View 1
Been a while, but regular viewers are already used to this. :-) This image was shot the same morning as the sunrinse in my previous post. I’ve done some photography over the past year, but just didn’t feel like processing them… Sometimes photography itself is more fun than developing.
Anyway, this is the environment I live in. Flat polder farmland. And I think it’s just as pretty and photogenic as mountains and forests. :-)
An older image, but somehow I forgot to post this one on any online platform except Facebook. So I just uploaded it to Flickr, and to my own little corner on the web ofcourse.
Hard Drive 2
We’re entering the most boring part of the year again, when autumn is gone and winter hasn’t arrived yet. So we have to search for different subjects for a while.
Big Star Moss
Another macro from the same location, date and time as the mushroom in my previous post. Big Star moss is named after its star shaped leaves, but I think the sporophytes are a lot more interesting.
Oops, sorry to interrupt you, little friend. I didn’t know this mushroom was already taken. I’ll find another one. :-)
Shot in the Speulderbos again, this time on November 17th. The light was very disappointing compared to a week earlier, so I decided to switch to plan B and get on my knees.
The fourth and probably last shot from the 10th of November. This time we’re back in deciduous woods, with a very orange/brown color theme. While I had trees at different distances to add depth in the previous images, this time I chose to get on my knees and use a trunk instead.
The third shot from a wonderful morning I had in the Speulderbos in the Netherlands. The light and haze were perfect for about two hours, so I had a lot of opportunities for great shots. This time I chose a shot of a pinetree area. The Speulderbos is a mixed forest. While deciduous forests turn orange in this time of year, the floor of pine forests actually turns green because of moss and new pine trees coming up.
This image was captured only 3 minutes after the previous post. Note how much the light changed in such a short time. The classic 3:2 image ratio is still my favorite, and I think this second composition suits that ratio better. That’s why the previous post was in 16:9.
