Treetops

When photographing landscapes in motion, many factors play a role in the result. The most obvious is the speed of travel and how the camera movement and exposure time relate to this. Another factor that only became clear to me in the course of the work is whether the detail I want to capture is in front of a light or a dark background.

Leaves and branches against a bright sky, as I see them when looking into the treetops, can develop a picturesque transparency through movement. The view into the moving treetops always fascinates me. Here I present a selection that stretches from Bavaria to India.
