These pictures are from another day – as you can see the weather was much friendlier.

I love those mountain streams. (Long time exposure with ND filter)

Nice snow on top and blue sky – such a beautiful day…
More photos from that hike to follow soon.
Have a great weekend!

Chapel View – Mountain Trip 2020

I don’t have to say much today with so many things going on in the world right now. Just wanted to share this nice place with you – perhaps it can disctract you from your worries for a moment.

(Shot taken with my Samsung NX3000 and 30mm 1:2 lens)

Chill a bit, y’all! 😉

For a nice mountain trip you also have to visit some lakes. So here you go.
If you want to know which cameras I used for this trip, have a look at my previous blog post.
It’s interesting to see what a difference the time of the day and lighting conditions can make to the atmosphere and look of a picture.

This one here was taken during sunset when this mountain range was lit by warm sun rays.

More pictures to come in the coming weeks – stay safe!


One plus one equals one

Or 1+1=1.
This reminds me of one episode of the tv series “Life” from 2007 (not the newer series with the same name):

“What we learned as children, that one plus one equals two, we know to be false. One plus one equals one. We even have a word for when you, plus another, equals one. That word is love.”

No, I don’t say these trees love each other, I just thought that was a nice symbolism here.

On the technical side:
The somewhat extreme perspective is due to an ultra wide angle lens I used – the focal length is 13mm!
While a fisheye lens would have resulted in curved trees and other strange effects, with an ultra wide angle lens straight lines stay straight, but you still get a dramatic perspective.

Evening Hike 1

In summer I like to go on a short hike in the evening when it’s not so hot anymore. On the downside, the sun had already been setting, so there was not too much available light in the forest. 😉
