“A frozen wave of sandstone” – This is how I would try to describe this magic place in one short sentence. After a first visit in the year 2000, I continuously keep coming to this place. Here, some works from my ongoing series “Landart – The Wave” …
Bad weather is good weather for the landscape photographer. If I remember one shooting where this statement could not be more to the point, then it was at Lake Powell back in 2005.
The biggest challenge was to keep the camera gear dry and working. With strong winds from the side, water was everywhere. But it was absolutely worth challenging man and gear. After only 15 minutes, this spectacular shooting was over.
The Wave below the ground is a pretty matching description for the Slot Canyons. Pure magic of forms, shapes and light.
Difficult terrain should not stop one from getting to fascinating places. The Narrows located in Zion National Park are a good example. The best angle – close to the surface of the water – called for me and the tripod to be standing in the middle of the stream for most of the shots.
In order to transport the special atmosphere down there, I decided to make the enlargements as Cyanotype Prints.
Razor sharp – This is the only description that can do justice to the lava fields in the Vulcano National Park, Hawaii.
The enormous power and dynamics of this liquid landscape is unrivaled.
The enormous dimensions of the Grand Canyon alone make it a spectacular place. The beauty of this location, already intensively studied by Ansel Adams, is breathtaking.
Yosemite National Park is probably most known for its massive granite dome, split in half millions of years ago. With a rise of 1.4 km above the valley it became the iconic rock formation of the Park. The best time to capture it in a cross sectional view is from Glacier Point early in the morning.
