So this year I have the plan to get out to the Baltic Sea every month to document the changes on the shore line. The constant winds, ice, snow, harsh sun, breaking waves all work together to create and take land every minute. It is amazing to see the drift wood coming on shore after a strong storm or the coast line retreating after days with high surfs. At the end of the year I seek to have created a story that details the constant change and the unique moments that come with it.The winter was quite mild this year, but I have some early results showing what a mild and briefly cold winter can look like.here in Rostock. Stay tuned for the end of the year. #StoryTelling
Frozen in time. Temperatures dropped below -10C here in Rostock for a week or so, which was the first time since we came back from Canada. This has resulted in the River Warnow freezing in only two days. Pictured here is the night time view from Gehlsdorf over to Rostock on a moonlit night, with one wooden pole fighting off the ice!
I recently attended a conference in Linz, Austria and to get there flying into Munich was the best option. In Munich I met with friends I had made during our time in Edmonton and after discussing some business we were off to chase some beautiful scenes just an hour south of Munich. Starting in Schlehdorf at the beautiful Kochelsee, we attempted to shoot sunrise, however, on that morning the sun never came up leaving us standing in grayish dull light. But we still had a great scenery unfolding with the famous three boat houses and some amazing foreground structures, but see for yourself.
From there we headed to the Schliersee area, where a 12m high waterfall was waiting. Getting there was painful in the morning rush hour on only highways, but after 1.5 hrs we arrived and had only 10 min to walk up the falls. It was snowing, which made it really difficult to keep the lens free of water, but the snow also helped to reveal the face of Josefthaler Waterfalls. But look for yourself.
After that I greeted my friend Marc goodbye and headed towards Salzburg in Austria, where I quickly stopped at the famous Gollinger Waterfalls near Kremml. The path to the falls was slippery but the scenes there amazing, with lush greens , turquoise water and a tamed waterfall due to the low water levels in winter. I called it a day after that and headed to Linz and made to my conference well in time. Here are some of my favorite shots from that morning! Enjoy.
