A little while ago a few of my colleague photo club members and I started a little project on photographing water droplets. We had been reading on it and had seen some examples. You don’t need a lot of kit or a difficult setup. And the good thing is: you can all do it during one night. Which is good when you try to find a free spot in the calendar of five people :-).

After practising a little and getting the light right the shooting could start! Here are my results:

Some more winter…

Although spring is finally there and temperatures are getting up again, I would like to post one more winter shot. It’s taken on Glacier 3000 near Gstaad in Switzerland.

The shot below is still a colour photo! Only minor adjustments are made in Lightroom.

I used this picture for the assignment on minimalism within our photo club. You can check the results of my fellow photographers here!

During the night temperatures in Germany dropped to -30°C. A new record. On our way back to the car we passed this little terrace…
