Old Wood in a former sea
Lens: DA*16-50 Camera: K-5 Photo Location: Hindeloopen, the Netherlands ISO: 80 Shutter Speed: Above 6s Aperture: F8 
Posted By: Fries, 03-10-2014, 04:32 PM

This is a site I have photographed a few times before. It is in the IJsselmeer which is now our biggest lake, but used to be a sea before we cut if off from the tides and the salty water. The building in some of the photo's is a former paviljoen for baders. For some of these photo's I used waders and the temperature dropped below zero celsius when I entered the water in the morning. I thought it was worthwhile and I hope you do too. The wood in the photo's is what remains of a old sea defense. Enjoy!

Cheers,

Remco

Thanks for posting, how interesting. The wood has been there so long it's developed an environment around and on it.

The first is stunning, well seen and captured.

So is this lake now fresh or brackish water?

Man, these are cool, Remco - each and every one. I really how like the feeling of "isolation" is implied by the last one.

John, thanks for confirming my suspicion!

I think the wood is standing where the shore used to be and it is just like people; the young ones are pretty but the older one's have character... This wood has plenty of character!

Thanks Jerry! It is springtime, the weather is good and it feels like a new, crisp, world. Most of these photo's should reflect that.

Thanks! Once I attended a two day training by a film&editing goeroe for my job and he showed us students something every photographer with some experience learns; that a scenic spot delivers a lot of different good shots and angles. These are only five, but I've gotten many more.

Thanks my friend! At my workplace they used my photo's in a very big way to soundproof the editing suites. Sorry for the crappy iPhone photo.

Thank you! I'm especially happy with how the second photo turned out. I used a black&white conversion from Nik's Analoge Efex Pro with some tweaks. The second one was done with Silver Efex from the same software company.

Thanks! I'm a fly fishermen with a thing for Scandinavian rivers and lakes and can handle the cold. With a extra long john on the only body parts the car heater had to take care of where some cold feet. The good thing about cold mornings and evenings is the ability to see very far! Using long shutter speeds (10 stop ND filter) makes the horizon and the edges of dry land come out even more pronounced.

Dave, thank you! This one is also destined for a place on the wall of one the eding suites.

Thanks! I already had this shot kind of thought out some time ago. I wanted to shoot this with the first delicate layer of ice in the winter and imagined it to be a 'cool' shot, but winter never really arrived here... The water is fresh and is being fed from the runoff from the land after a rainfall and one big river. To maintain a safe lever of water we use big sluices to dump al the 'extra' water in the sea. Unfortunately the way this is set up really messes with migrating fish like eel and there are plans to set up a artificial river that moves with the tides to rectify this problem.

Jer, thank you! On the water it always seems to be easier to find a quiet and isolated spot than on dry land.

Tess, thanks for your kind words. It is a privilege to try capture something beautiful and then get feedback like yours and all the other participants in this thread. Keeps me going!
