During wintertime, here in December, the water in the dips and the little developed swamp areas froze deeply. That Winter was very cold, for several weeks the temperature dropped below -20°C, it was a struggle for everyone.
The swamps that arise in our forests from lot´s of rainfall which isn´t absorbed, develop biotopes that establish another form of landscape. The lining and frozen surface inspired us for this abstract photographic edition.
Winter is omnipresent in germany. Last year we had 7 months of blistering cold and grey weather. To get the idea of beautiful landscapes in our home country, we are spending our time, finding spots for our works and coincidently in search for the beauty and moments of nature.
This beautiful sunset we captured in a clearing in a nearby forest. We knew the location and when the sun begins to set; by revoking the color we created a calm atmosphere, there´s no kitsch left, just the motive like we saw it.
Here we captured these exceptional blue toning again in the freezing wintertime in Germany a few years ago. There´s still some foliage left on the beech trees but it´s already decayed. The setting sun spoils our motive with a warm lighting ambience, diverting from the surrounding frostiness.
