Description Ice floating on one of the lakes in the Upper Enchantments, Alpine Lakes Wilderness, Washignton, USA. The water reflected the golden glow of the mountains in the early morning sun. July 2006.
Gilbert Weidinger, Dresden, Germany Member Since November 2008 Artist Statement Since I started to take pictures a couple years ago, I have learned to see my surroundings much more intensively. That's what I like most about photography: that it opens one's eyes to the beauty of the world. That's why I also mainly take pictures of nature. And being a photographer motivates me to go that extra mile to be at a beautiful plave at sunrise or sunset, when the light transform the landscape into a surreal, magical place.
I shoot both digital and on Fuji Velvia slide film.
I've lived in Seattle, USA, from 2002 - 2006. Now I'm in Dresden, Germany, where I work as a scientist.
