| »I am particularly interested in creating a positive feeling. I want the person looking at the photo to think:
»This is where I want to go!«
The specific feature of landscape photography is the definition of space. On the one hand there is the width and the horizon. On the other hand there are the spatial boundaries or the elements that are shaping the space.
I pay attention to the changing seasons and their moods of light, the weather, the materials etc.:
How does the Portuguese granite glitter in the sun? How intense is the green of the grass in spring? How can one capture the wind in the tree tops? Furthermore I find it exciting to watch the dynamic that results from the use of space. But I also I like pictures without a human presence, because then the focus is on the landscape.«
