Lens-Artists Photo Challange 163: “keep walking”

“keep walking” is the topic for this week’s Lens-Artist’s Photo Challenge hosted by Amy.

Today, I have a fun pic for you. I took it a couple of years ago in Belgium. This young guy apparently didn’t want to get sandy feet. So his girlfriend (?) or sister (?) had to carry him.

 

 

Take care!

This weekend, I was reminded of my visit to Zingst 4 years ago. I was there to visit the Photo Festival “Horizonte”. During that week, I attended one workshop (photographing trees in the famous forest of Zingst). We had a guide to find some of the centuries-old trees in the National Park. In the evening we had to select our images and present 10, as a result, the next morning. 2 out of these 10 were selected to be presented in a slideshow that evening at the beach to a huge auditorium. Both of my selected images for the daily slideshow were in monochrome. You can find the other image here

This image was even selected for the final slideshow containing the best 15 images of the festival.

Btw. I’m currently running a raffle. You can win a license of Excire Foto. Check it out!

Take care!

Monochrome Monday 8-01

Today I’m starting in the 8th year of this continuously running series of presenting monochrome images and I still love doing it.

Today, we’re back in Iceland again. This is Djúpalónssandur beach located on the south-western edge of Snæfellsnes peninsula.

Take care!

Travel Tuesday: a sunny day at the coast

feels kind of strange in Scotland (at least for me). Having such wonderful weather while being on the coast and even have a sandy beach and wearing a warm jacket is strange. Although I was already on Helgoland in mid-January, this felt kind of wrong.

On the other hand, the Icelandic beaches are different. Even when having one of these warm days hours with a blue sky, the beaches are black and the waves huge. They don’t invite for a bath.

Take care!
