The past year has been very slow on my website. So many things good and bad have happened that photography was moved to the background for a long time. And it’s not that I’m really back now, I only go out and shoot whenever I feel inspired, so don’t expect a sudden surge of new work over here just yet.
Anyway, autumn certainly is a time of year to inspire me. So I decided to drive to the German Eifel region last week to shoot at the Irreler Wasserfälle. It’s a four hour drive and all the way I drove I saw the colours change slowly. These parts are always slightly ahead of us with fall foliage as they are a bit higher up. Some trees were even past their peak, but especially the birches were still incredibly bright.
I had never been to the Irreler Wasserfälle (‘waterfalls of Irrel’, though technically not really waterfalls) in a season other than spring before. It’s one of my favourite places near home to shoot a fast flowing river and now I know that it’s beautiful in autumn too. I should go here in winter sometime :).
On my way back I made the usual stop at the bridge of the Schiessentümpel in Luxembourg. But it seems a huge boulder had slipped from the rock wall on the side and it was mostly fenced off. The only way to reach it was to wade through the shallow water, so I just got a quick shot from this place and went back home again.
