Alone In The Dark

Alone In The Dark

Alone In The Dark, Mülheim an der Ruhr, Germany© Frank Lüdtke Only about 10 minutes away from my home, I took the opportunity to photograph the super moon in early April 2020. The photo was taken in the middle of the corona crisis and again I was impressed, which possibilities are just around the corner even without a long journey. The title refers to the moon and should remind us of the current crisis – the isolation and the being alone. — Nur etwa 10 Minuten von mir Zuhause entfernt, hatte ich die Gelegenheit genutzt den Supermond Anfang April 2020 zu fotografieren. Das Foto wurde inmitten der Coronakrise aufgenommen und ich war wieder erstaunt, welche Möglichkeiten direkt um die Ecke auch ohne große Reise liegen. Der Titel bezieht sich auf den Mond und soll an die aktuelle Krise erinnern – an die Isolierung und das Alleine Sein.

Deep Space

Deep Space

Deep Space, Arctic Norway © Frank Lüdtke Spectacular light show just above my head on a cold night on the Lofoten. I headed the camera straight up to the sky to capture this amazing  playing norther lights. — Spektakuläre Lichtshow direkt über meinem Kopf in einer kalten Nacht auf den Lofoten. Ich richtete die Kamera geradewegs auf den Himmel aus, um diese fantastischen Nordlichter einzufangen.

The Inner Source

The Inner Source – Partnachklamm, Germany © Frank Lüdtke In the canyons of Partnachklamm, the spray of a little waterfall was illuminated by the sun, creating a mystical effect. — In den Schluchten der Partnachklamm wurde die Gischt eines kleinen Wasserfalls von der hoch stehenden Sonne angestrahlt und erzeugte dadurch einen mystischen Effekt.

Double Rainbow

Milford Sound, Fjordland NP, South Island, New Zealand © Frank Lüdtke One of my rare photos which I took free hand without a tripod. That one was shot on a beautiful boat cruise at Milford Sound. The captain steered the nose of the boat directly into a big waterfall and the sun created incredible rainbows which you could walk into. My camera got really wet but it was worth the fun 😉 I could image that this spectacle is really seldom, because Milford Sound has about 300 days of rain in one year – however, I enjoyed every second there!

Fern Wall

South Island, New Zealand © Frank Lüdtke While driving somewhere at the west coast, I suddenly saw that great wall of fern. I stopped my camper van some meters later, took my tripod and shot some fast exposures while standing on the road. To make it more interesting for the eye I included the little tree together with the fern to give some point to focus.
