    Is this a photography ?

    My conference schedule allowed me a walk through the Berlin Tiergarten Park in the morning. Of course, with a cam handy. While I was sitting on the shore of the Landwehr Canal, I let myself be carried away by the waves.

    The waves made the reflections of the trees and bushes softly tremble. The resulting reflections became like paintings.

    The processing was carried out only with regard to brightness and colors. Lab colors were used. Light-dark-contrasts were given by the waves.

    Low water at Lake Constance

    This year we suffer from low snowfalls and low rainfalls during winter and spring. Since end of January we had blue sky and one only few clouds. It was nice to see the night sky and many phases of the Moon. But our garden is dry. 

    A short vacation at Lake Constance showed this drama. The shorelines around the island of Reichenau are becoming more visible than ever. And a boat on the lake shore is no longer a reliable means of traveling.
