Im Holz. 2
A contribution for Magic Letters: I. The challenge is to photograph Innen: the inside. Im Holz means ‘in the wood’ and this part shows a fruit tree fracture that only occurred during last summer’s storms. The wood is still relatively fresh.
Im Holz. 1
A contribution for Magic Letters: I. The challenge is to photograph Innen which means ‘the inside’ but also carries a connotation of ‘inward’ or even ‘subjectivity’. Im Holz would be ‘in the wood’ in English – which could also have been a title I liked – and part one features two older fruit tree fractures. Life goes on here.
Afloat. Adrift. Ashore.
Ever the optimist, I guess: When I read this week’s photo challenge, I immediately had to think of the waste afloat on our oceans. Well, here is my contribution: What goes around, comes around. Literally.
Lots of converging lines in the first picture; but if you look hard (but not overly hard) they are also there in the second one.
Minimalist Life Story
After this year’s summer storms, our forest was no longer the same. But something is always sprouting… My second contribution for this week’s Photo Challenge: “Find an interesting texture, color, or silhouette. Maybe there is a story that you can tell with your minimalist photo. Try an interesting angle with your composition to turn a traditional scene into a minimalist one, by eliminating as much of the extra detail in the background as possible.”

An interpretation of the Weekly Photo Challenge.
The Weekly Photo Challenge inspired me to try what I have been thinking about for a while now: I experimented with backlit dead leaves here, aiming at the silhouettes (and the compositions).
Volume / Density
Travelling Scotland, I picked up a small cloud guide (you cannot help taking interest in weather in Scotland, it seems). I found that weather is quite an interesting field, and then I thought, well if I am that interested, why not photograph the sky?
I took the photo above from our balcony, and I think it illustrates the fact that there are several distinct altitudes for clouds. The sun is on its way down, and I just caught it between two “floors”. The photo below shows just how dramatic weather can be.
