Wild Beauty of Nature

While I was walking around my favourite lake “Eibensee” near my home town today I took some pictures of the blooming nature.

These flowers might not be as colourful and lush like  tulips or roses, but they have their own wild beauty.

If you wonder about the bottle cap, this seems to be a remnant of someone’s picnic at the lake including typical Austrian beer…:-)

 

Best Nature Shots

I selected some of my nature shots to apply some changes in photoshop here and there.
What I like is to play around with slight changes in colour, light or background.

I also like to combine two pictures which are somehow related, like the picture of the lake and the foliage.

Cutting into Wood

Last week I bought some wooden panels and did my first woodcuts.

If you choose a soft wood like limetree, cutting into wood doesn’t require much more strength than cutting into a lino plate.

You can also use linocut colours for printing.

Here are the first results:

 

Small is Beautiful

Having bought a macro lens for my camera, I wanted to try it out as soon as possible.

This winter holiday we’re not going anywhere so we have just been walking around taking pictures of the beautiful nature surrounding as here in Austria.

Nature’s beauty can be seen in every little detail…
