One misty morning in November...

... on my way to work

There was no time for a real photo shoot - so I just stopped my car and took this picture with my Android mobile phone.

I love those misty mornings in autumn!

Moonlit Seashore

Today I´d like to show you one of my husband´s photographs - to be honest - I think he´s a much more creative photographer than I am... unfortunately he doesn´t photograph too much.

Last year in Croatia we decided to do some night photography before dinner... we started to shoot in the Blue Hour and continued until it was really dark night.

The Croatian Coast near Split was so very beautiful with all that hundreds of lights!

I shot an overview image, which did not really satisfy me... but my husband had a much better approach: he zoomed in and captured the moonlight reflected by the sea so beautifully:

For comparison - this is my not very spectacular attempt to capture the scene:

Another one of my "trial and error" shots:

 ... the next time I´ll set the focus to infinity, choose an aperture of about 8-11 and keep the shutter open for 15-30 seconds.... manual focussing didn´t work for me... anyway, it was a gorgeous experience and I´ll try to make it better next time! We never stop learning!
Have a nice day!

Be sure to be prepared!

One night in Croatia we saw sheet lightning in the sky for about an hour - I ran to the beach and tried to catch it with my camera - BUT - I was not prepared!
I did not know how to photograph lightnings and I forgot to take things with me that I would have needed, such as a small torch, my remote-control release etc.  ... I was  n o t  prepared for that -> huge mistake!
But neverless I like this one - even though it´s slightly unsharp... and trust me - I´ll be prepared the next time!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Diamonds in the sky

Night photography is one of my newest passions... it gives the most surprising results!

My first try on star trails...

My next goal is a nice shot from the Milky Way... not as easy as I thought (focusing is tricky and there´s too much light in this part of the world at night)

Useful hints are welcome :-)
