… clear skies. Since at least one week I wait to be able to photograph the comet C/2020 Neowise. Last night it finally worked out. However, there were no NLCs last night, but maybe this possibility will open up again next week. Here is a stack of 16 images at 200mm with the Nikon D850 […]

The Corona period had its moments. It was unbelievably crowded at the beach in Sahlenburg, so that I quickly left the place again. Two panoramas and a regular 16:9 picture are still left. All shots freehand with the Fuji X-T20 and the 18-55mm standard zoom.
From yesterday evening once again a video from Holte-Spangen. With sunsets and sunrises like this, the Mavic Mini camera will of course fail. This dynamic is a bit too much for the small sensor. This applies even more to the video recordings, where you can get even less out of them with post-processing (at least […]
Yesterday in the early evening, a rainbow appeared over the Elbe in the direction of Brunsbüttel. The small Fuji is really good compared to the sensor size. Since it is very small, it is ideal for “just quickly” taking along.
Yesterday I made my first, halfway useable, hyperlapse at the “Alte Liebe” in Cuxhaven. The video was made from 250 shots, inserted forwards and backwards in the video, with the Fuji X-T20 and the 18-55mm lens with the help of a monopod.
Here are two somewhat abstract experiments on a wheat field. Both shots with the Nikon D850 and the Nikkor 24f/3.5 PCE. The first image is a multi-exposure of two shots, processed in Lightroom, Photoshop and finally in Silver Efex Pro. The second image, with similar processing, but only a single exposure.
A short flight west of Cuxhaven. On one side Cuxhaven in the back light and in the background … … on the other side you can still see Sahlenburg in the background above Holte-Spangen and the Küstenheiden nature reserve. It was slightly hazy, but already too late to have more ground fog on the pictures.
This morning in Bremerhaven I was almost late. The light was barely on before it got too harsh. The Alexander von Humboldt II obscured a better view of the Hotel Atlantic from the lock, but does not matter in this case. All pictures were taken with the Fuji X and the 18-55mm Fujinon. There are […]
First attempt with the Fuji X-T20. The operating concept does not appeal to me as a Nikon user, but the camera is small, light and accordingly “just quickly taken along”. In the – unfair – comparison to the Nikon D850, but also to the much older D800, the image quality is – still – not […]
Today’s evening shot with the modified Nikon D80, Nikkor 16-85 and the Hoya R72 Infrared, converted to black/white
