Biography

Although I got my first digital camera already in 1999 and I took a lot of pictures since then, it is only since 2015 that I really tried to improve the quality of my photos. Especially as I do not like post production. A little cropping here or minor colour adjustment there I do not mind. Although the one operation I do most is: adjusting the horizon to be level. ;-)
Many of the photographs I will post here are probably from my other hobby: sailing. The yacht which I am sailing most of the time is based in Niendorf/Ostsee, Germany and from there we are sailing to Scandinavia, Baltics or even the North Sea and the English Channel.

      I reckon we may come to regret losing all those old lighthouses and radio beacons - everyone has become dependent on satnav ... but what happens if it goes wrong?
      • Jan E.
        9 months ago
        If I understood correctly it was put out of service as it was too high and low hanging clouds often obscured it. There is another lighthouse further north which is not so high above the sea: Hammerodde Fyr



        But generally you are right. I am sailing yachts now since 30 years - navigation really has changed a lot...

      I think the wood is an important subject, so prefer colour

        ;-) yes, they have a series called "NEXO KNIGHTS™" which might sound similar - especially to those who do not know what this slash through the o means.

        Thank you, Joe! As I did not have my ND filters on me, 5 seconds was the longest I could get.

          IMO that's all you needed. The sea looks very calm and more time would not add much difference, and the clouds are a heavy blanket so not too much motion either. I think this is perfect as you planned it :)

      very nice tones-I always thought one needed a small aperture to get the sun burst effect. Well done!
      • Jan E.
        1 year ago
        Thank you! Yes, I thought the same - and sometimes I regret that the smallest aperture of my camera is actually 8 - But I was really surprised when I realised that I even used the widest aperture available - and yet I do not even know why. ;-)
