A Walk in the Forest


holz-04While I’d had in mind to post these pictures in my own ‘elements‘ gallery – demonstrating that I am more at home with wood than with glass – I realized that today’s pictures also show what we saw on our walk in the nearby Stadtwald (“city forest”). So I decided to share these in the context of Jo’s Monday Walks. And so everybody can see where we were, I included the bottom picture.

[Although I am not into tech talk, I would have been grateful for this kind of information when I was trying to make up my mind about using Sony’s Alpha 6000 camera with Nikon AIS lenses – so here we go: The first picture was made with aforementioned camera and a Nikkor 85/2 AIS, the rest of them with my favourite lens, the Nikkor 28/2.8 AIS. They seem to quite work well with the camera. Though focusing manually can be a hassle  with the small EVF, it is also fun.]

  1. Always something to photograph in a woodland and you had some lovely sunshine streaming through the trees. Lovely texture details here.

    1. “Finding a certain vision” is actually my goal (although the process isn’t always entirely rational), so thank you for your kind comment!

    1. You’re welcome. And thank you, Jo, for providing us with a theme I still think is one of the smartest around – constantly reminding us to pick up a camera and walk. (The feet are a photogtaphers most important tool, as some people say. I tend to agree.)
