Artist Statement

As a photographer, I have been fascinated by the constantly changing, often very intense or pastel colors of the sea and the sky for 40 years. As a physicist, I often think about how these colors come about. This knowledge lets me take a closer look and discover nuances that I would otherwise not have seen and could not capture in the photo. Many photos in this series were taken with a 300 mm telephoto lens. They only show a small section of the horizon that is particularly interesting in terms of color. With regard to the colors, the photos have not been edited afterwards.
Green is the most common color in the sea. It can arise in different ways.
In this case sunlight penetrates the water, the red component is increasingly absorbed by the water. What remains is initially green, then blue light. If there are many cloudy substances in the water (e.g. after a storm) the green light is already scattered back to the surface from a depth of a few meters and can thus reach our eyes.
