Landscape photography is so much more than driving out to a remote location and snapping a few images. It takes time, dedication, planning, and lots of trial and error. When we first came across these incredible images from Franz Sußbauer for his series ‘Winter in Norway,’ we that they were something special. Anyone can go out and snap some landscape snapshots, but capturing nature’s emotion, the ebb and flow, and to do so in such detail – that takes talent and know how. “My plan was to make great pictures of a great landscape. Pictures like paintings with a hyper-realistic mood.”Franz said of the series.
Given the unpredictable nature of the weather and conditions that far north we wanted to ask Franz a little about how he approached the challenge. “It was the water and the wind.” Franz said of the environment, “It was very hard to stay dry and keep clean the lenses and filters especially during long exposures up to 8 min. with a ND 3.0 Filter.”
Those of you looking for some great landscape inspiration need look no further. These beautiful images brilliantly capture not only the landscape, but the chaos of winter in the north. See for yourself…
