The last weeks I limited in time for extensive phototrips, but the few (short) trips were quite productive. Therefore I can even show you two autumn series.
Today I want to start with the "colorful version", of the local beech and pine forests.
I was able to explore some areas already 2 years ago. I fiddled a bit with the title: 2 pictures were taken in the “Sauerland”, but all other pictures were taken in the Ruhr area. Can you guess
The Ruhr area really has a very large selection of beautiful and partly natural forests, so this series was a lot of fun.
A technical side note (more interesting for photographers): Exactly one year ago I bought the big version of my Gitzo tripod (GT3543XLS) and was already happy to use the overlength several times
this year. But this and the upcoming fall series was quite extreme: in about half of the pictures it was clearly advantageous to use the overlength and in about 20% of the pictures the motif was
even only possible this way. The main goal was to fade out bright parts of the sky in the forest behind. Including the height of the ball head, the eyepiece of the camera was usually located at a
height of about 2.10-2.40m, which is no problem anymore since the invention of the flip-up display 😉 I had not expected this usage rate before I bought it. But if you have the height available,
you can use it really well in the forest and heath (see also the upcoming quite extensive series).
Now I wish you a lot of fun with the series!
I hope you enjoyed the series!
