autumn in the deep forest

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

still I am very busy processing all those hundreds of pictures from my Hong Kong trip but yet these autumn days are so demanding for roaming in the forest that I could not resist taking a few series. so here are a few from last weekend where we enjoyed all those almost summerly temperatures.

 

This forest is being dominated by birches, needle trees wild berries, heath and and very few other trees. On sandy soil this is a very long and extended strip at the bottom of our small mountains where the ocean of the early earth history found its natural border.

 

the first 3 are with Canon 5D MKII and Elmarit R 90 mm

The other 2 are with Leica X1

Dee,

many thanks - I roamed carried my camera on the tripod shouldered ready to stop many times, because there was so much to see.

 

Bill,

thank you so much. Yes. no 2 was interesting. I watched this light there, rumbled into the thicket and hurried to get a few shots, because sun was sinking very quickly. Then I discovered approaching nearer that these mossy "hills" were fallen trees almost being sucked back into the soil. So these features are showing the natural process of the forest vegetation.

 

Louis,

thank you very much, yes, youi are right: I'll do more in B&W and here it probably will work. I get my 2 new IR filters by the end of this week and then new experiments will be started.

 

Hank,

many thanks for your time watching this series. I am glad you like it, you are right about the b&w look, I'll work on it.

 

tedasa,

I am happy about you nice feedback, thank you very much.

 

Stig,

thanks a lot for your nice comment. I am happy it came out like this. It was an atmosphere between 2 worlds: a touch of warm sunrays and the already cool autumnal bluish dark parts. Somehow these trees were ghostlike messengers from fading nature.

Iduna,

 

A beautiful series with the magical light of the forest and the lovely colors. These pictures remind me of Eliot Porter's work.

      Landscape of my region in autumn 2018. This belongs to my first series with my "new" Leica R3 and Summicron 50 mm. Kodak 200 scanned with Epson 850 V Pro.

      Fallen crabapples mix with dead pine needles on an urban sidewalk in Southampton, England. They herald the onset of Fall and the start of the regeneration of life for next Spring. They are earlier than normal this year because of the very low rainfall and high heat but the cycle of life will continue as always.

      This is a street: a suburban street.  Shot from my front porch last November (2017).  Leica M3 using Fuji Pro 400H film.  The lens was a Canon 28mm Serenar f3.5 (ltm).  Negative scanned, and processed with Aurora software first, then Adobe Photoshop.

      This is another from the trial run in the garden with the M240 and Zeiss 50mm Sonnar f1.5. I love the colour palette of the M240.

      Having my M9 stuck in repair for a sensor replacement for 7 weeks and being told it would be at least another 6 weeks to get sorted, I decided on the spur of the moment that the only answer was to trade in my M7 and get a M240. The annoying thing is that the M9 went in for an unrelated problem and they said "whilst it is here we will replace the sensor for you".
       
      However I now have the M240 and took the first test shots with it today. The location was my back garden (not the most inspiring place in the world) and I was quite pleased with this one out of the very few I took. The lens was my Zeiss 50mm Sonnar f1.5.
