Today by Laanscapes
Today
..:: Today ::..
(Schwarzwald, Germany)

My work generally involves rigorous planning. When would be the best time to capture a shot; at which angle should I position the camera – etc. Weeks, even months would go into planning a particular grand landscape.

And then there are the occasional hits like “Today”. On the last day of a short break from the flat countryside of the Netherlands, we decided to visit a castle while still in the foothills of the German Schwarzwald. During our return trip, this plan quickly went out the window when the mist was carried out from the valleys as the sun rose above the mountains.

“Today” was captured with the D7100 at 80mm.

f/13, 1/60s, ISO100.

Creatures of the Stars by Laanscapes
Creatures of the Stars
..:: Creatures of the Stars ::.. - Schneeberg, Vosges, France

When the night eventually does fall during the summer, the night sky can look truly spectacular at altitude. No wonder man has given many interesting names to the constellations over the course of human history.

And we still do. To my mind, naming a certain star Proxima Centauri isn’t very different than naming a group of stars for example ‘lesser dog’ or ‘Canis Minor’. It’s within our nature to recognise and identify patterns. It has helped us tell interesting stories, navigate the globe and shed light upon where we come from.

The summer months mostly do not produce spectacular starry skies, except for very dry areas near the equator. This is because the warm air collects and holds much more moisture than the cooler winter air does. Over the course of the evening, the air cools and the moisture condenses, obscuring a clear view to the heavens above.

From out of the valleys in France’s mountainous Vosges region, rises the Schneeberg, from which this image has been captured. At about a kilometre high, the cooler air settles in the valleys instead. Combined with the facts that air is less dense at that altitude and that it’s marginally closer to the edge of space, the Milky Way pops out like it does on a Hubble image.

Creatures of the Stars was captured with the D600 at 14mm.

f/4, 20s, ISO5000.

Invitation by Laanscapes
Invitation
..:: Invitation ::.. - Lac de la Maix, Vosges, France

laanscapes.com/portfolio/invit…

// Please share this image if you like it! This helps me out a lot. Thanks! \\

Over the course of a week-long hike through France’s Vosges, one of Europe’s largest wooded areas; we came across a lake that had some interesting photo opportunities.
In discussion with a dear friend and fellow photographer, we talked about how peaceful and quiet Lac de la Maix appeared to us during our well-deserved stop at its shoreline. As we agreed to how much this scene before us unfolded like a painting, we could not share our vision of which art-form we each saw in the same scene.

I find this to be insightful of how the human mind and its associations work. My friend, who has a keen photographic eye about natural history, didn’t share the same artistic association of this abstract scene I came home with. We both went to the same lake. We had both hiked equally far that day and we both photographed same scene from practically the same spot…

It is true that we both used different lenses to capture our ideas, but isn’t it interesting that we had completely different views of what we saw? This leads to believe that no matter how many times a particular subject has been captured, every image is unique. Cameras do not capture a photograph. Photographers do.

====

Invitation was captured with the D600 at 85mm

Shifting the camera while pulling the ISO under the camera’s specification made it possible to capture some vertical movement in the woods across the lake, as well as the reflection in it.

f/14, 1/10, ISO80 (low 1).
