New on 500px : Autumn beauty by MartinKrajczy by MartinKrajczy

Misty morning in the woods in eastern Germany. It was a misty morning but when i started for my second tour on this day the mist already disappeared at my hotel. A hour later i arrived in this area close to the czech border. This area is really „the end of the world“ the road ends there and it ist he highest area in this region. When i arrived there the high mist was still there. It was really a surprise so i did hurry up to get into the woods. My best shots of this tour i took within the first hour while the mist was still in the woods. Later the sun broke through and the magic was gone. I really like this misty conditions which bring silence into the woods and my compositions. via Tumblr http://bit.ly/1ZLzUPh

Sunrise on a misty morning in eastern Germany. The weather conditions at this morning were great. It was a combination of low mist and high mist with a partially cloudy sky. About a hour after sunrise the sun did break through the high mist and turned the valley into a soft light while the colors of the autumn leaves were really a highlight in the lower mist areas. Such a lovely scene with soft tones and light. But it did only last for a few minutes before the sun dissapeared again behind the high mist. It was my fourth visit at this place during my stay in this area and it did pay off for all efforts. via Tumblr http://bit.ly/1RaNvyq

Liquid of life in the Namib desert. We did follow this thunderstorm for a few hours . The rain fall was always on our left hand side. It was great to observe it moving through the desert building a stripe of grass. After a few hours we nearly had to drive through… tough winds were coming up out of nothing and the silence of the hot desert during afternoon suddenly was gone. It was just awesome to observe the nature forces at work. Since that i know why you drive for hours through a dry landscape with no animals and suddenly there are hundreds of them…. such a thunderstorm happend exactly there 2-3 weeks ago…a miracle of life — Re-mastered version of a shot taken in March this year in the Namib desert via Tumblr http://ift.tt/1RZsoxP

Fog and sun are a photographers best friends. In combination they are unbeatable. This early morning backlight shot is a good example for this. You would never stop at this place without fog and sun as backlight. Nature generates such a beauty if we take the time to see it. I wish you all many of such magical moments. This is a re-mastered versions…as style changes with the time running bye 🙂 via Tumblr http://ift.tt/1PdjsUP

Panorama shot out of eight single frames. I was searching for the fog at this morning and finally found it. The weather situation was difficult as the fog was only in specific areas. In other areas he disappeared already due to the sun breaking through. It was the first time that i did stop at this place but the light was just perfect. I quickly set up my camera and tripod and walked around to find the right position. When i finished with my shooting 15 minutes later the fog was gone. Another version of this shot made it into the top101 of the „International landscape photographer of the world 2014“. via Tumblr http://ift.tt/1T3plD9

New on 500px : Autumn silence by MartinKrajczy by MartinKrajczy

Panorama shot out of seven single frames. This is a typical weather situation in late autumn / early winter in Germany. The last leaves (mainly orange) on the trees and the red / brown leaves on the ground are a great contrast to the misty situations in the forest. In some years we have many misty situations in other years these weather situation are rare. This is a re-mastered shot from 2013. The current weather situations doen´t allow such shots…too warm and rainy conditions. via Tumblr http://ift.tt/1YgtrhS

This is a re-mastered version of a shot i published half a year ago – you might remember the time with a preview on 500px in square format ☺. This re-mastered version won two awards in the meantime. It was selected into the „Top101 Landscape photographer of the year“ award. It also reached the top 50 shots with an silver award in the „International EPSON panorama awards“ and the top 10 of the fine art category.
The shot (panorama out of 7 single frames) is taken on a cold, silent autumn morning with a crane migration happening during the shooting. A really awesome place and masterpiece of bridge architecture. I saw recently some shots with people on top of the bridge. I am not a supporter of such shots because it only demonstrates that these people have no respect for the subject they are taking photographs off. It is of course forbidden to climb on the bridge for many good reasons. So if my photo inspires you to go there please respect the nature and the architecture work and have a great time there. via Tumblr http://bit.ly/1l7fD7V

New on 500px : Into the autumn light by MartinKrajczy by MartinKrajczy

This beautiful light on this day with high mist was ideal for taking photos at this location. Only a few people were walking along this canyon at this day. The color of the leaves were awesome. I spend more than a hour at this one place until i left this awesome location and continued wit my walk in the canyon. via Tumblr http://ift.tt/1kWDUO5

New on 500px : Loneliness by MartinKrajczy by MartinKrajczy

Sunset in the Namib desert. In this frame you can see the two sides of this sunset. On the right side the sun doesn´t reach the blue/grey sky anymore while on the left side the sunset is still in his yellow / orange phase. It was great to observe this while having the camera setup with a 90 degree angle to the direct sunlight. This area is close to the border of the Skeleton national parc in the northwest region of Namibia. In the lower season it can happen that you do not see any other human beings for days. One of my favourite areas in Namibia because you can also observe desert elephants in this region if you are lucky. The tree on the left side is standing in the middle of an epidemic stream. This is the reason for the sand line to the hill in the foreground on the left side. Must be great to see water in such an epidemic stream … coming out of nothing. via Tumblr http://ift.tt/1QrlLRR
