Bastei, Elbe, Germany – Boris Buschardt

Bori’s landscapes are absolutely breathtaking- i’m sure you will agree: I’ve really struggled to pick “favourites” but here are a few more tasters!

Enter Boris

I started with travel photography 27 years ago at the age of 17 with a two month trip through the USA. My first serious camera was a Nikon F3 with just a 50 mm lens. As a student I spent nearly three months in the rainforest of Costa Rica taking macro images of insects, frogs and reptiles.
Since 1999 I’ve specialised in landscape photography in and around the wild places of this planet. I’m always looking for dramatic and beautiful light and clean compositions. My preferred subjects at the moment are flowing water and rainforests. Typically I use lenses in the range between 15 mm and 60 mm and often GND and ND filters.

The image was shot on a weekend photography trip together with some friends from the Fred Miranda Alt Forum. Since I know this place very well, the hardest things was to get up early enough to be there one hour before sunrise. And we really had some luck with the fog combined with some great light, which you won’t get very often at this place.

All post processing was done in Lightroom besides some slight adjustments of white point, black point, contrast etc. I used the great digital GND function of LR to darken the sky a bit.

Camera: Leica M9
Lens: Leica Super-Elmar 3.8/18mm Asph
Settings: 1/2 sec, f/11, ISO 160, 18mm
