Black Ice Land

There is a melancholic feel to Michael Schlegel’s beautiful landscape photography.German photographer Martin Schlegel often revist the scenes of his photograps at different times of day to capture the perfect balance between light and weather. “These moments often occur at dawn or dusk, or even at night, because light situations without direct sunlight hold more potential.” says Michael Schlegel.

Photographing under these circumstances often require long exposure times, which adds to the sometimes surreal feel of his photographs. There is a stark graphical quality to the images and a quiet sense of longing.

Lots more photos on his website.
