Oaks in the fields near Heidenau

We were cycling through the fields between Sittensen and Buchholz when we passed this beautiful group of oaks. I always love the time with the soft veil clouds in the sky, which develop their drama only in infrared photography.

Here the eye is led from the top right along the cloud to the oak tree. I think that’s what’s special about the composition.

Many evenings I walk along these fields, with the view of the houses at the Country inn Hoheluft, which is located above the small village of Meilsen on the main road. Every evening the mood is different — now, just before midsummer, the sun sets behind the houses in the northwest.

On this evening we were exactly on the spot at the right time. Exactly in extension of the footpath between the fields, the sun hung glowing red between the trees and above it a fantastic cloud front, which absorbed some of the light. An atmosphere to enjoy!

This morning was a day full of dramatic clouds and I was finally back in Hamburg on a short photo trip along the harbour. It’s great that there were only short moments of sunlight that bathed Blohm + Voss in the light, but not the river Elbe before that. And the sky above was full of dramatic clouds. So I love the light for my infrared photography!

I have always noticed how beautiful the small path past the fields is for me. Big stately trees form a small footpath avenue and at the beginning there is a beech hedge on one side. But right after a rain shower I hadn’t been here in spring to see how the creek on the path shimmers only green because all the spring leaves are reflected in it.

For me it is just a beautiful, a wonderful natural spectacle and I always enjoy rediscovering the area around my home!

When the golden evening light falls on the trunks and the young green of the trees is my favorite time to be outside in spring. Again and again I am drawn to the small footpath alley at the edge of the fields of Steinbeck, which is lined with stately oaks and birches. And again and again I look up at the trunks of the trees into the treetops. Do you not sometimes feel the same way?

Goodbye to April

April 2020 was unusual. The weather was rather cloudless and without rain. From the society the Corona Lockdown, which has meant many weeks of work from the home office for me, too. Luckily we didn’t have a strict curfew in Germany and so my wife and I went for walks regularly — mostly along the fields of Meilsen. But with pure blue sky and the fields still lying fallow, that wasn’t an interesting motive.

How happy I was when at the end of April rain clouds finally came up in the sky again and in addition the fields were cultivated again.
