El norte de España — done

Refer­ring to a former post star­ted in June, I now com­pleted pub­lish­ing a fine series of black and white images of our trip back in 2016 through North­ern Spain. You can find the full series here on flickr. In case you’d like to com­ment, it’s appre­ci­ated … and maybe, you want to vis­it my web­site…… Con­tin­ue read­ing El norte de España — done

Perseids Meteor Shower

Anoth­er astro­nomy high­light was the Per­seids Met­eor Shower occur­ring in August and this year we were lucky, as it was new moon and so it was quite dark out­side, here in that rur­al region. The max­im­um hit rate was announced for Monday morn­ing around 4:30 GMT, I knew that I’d not wait that long. Start­ing…… Con­tin­ue read­ing Per­seids Met­eor Shower

Once in a mankind — Lunar Eclipse with Mars

My first thought was … argh … there will be mil­lions of beau­ti­ful, sharp and frame filling pic­tures on the inter­net already nano­seconds after this event has star­ted. Then I thought … let’s have a look … and I saw the dark brown moon rising over the south­east­ern hori­zon. Hm, … I fetched my bin­ocu­lar…… Con­tin­ue read­ing Once in a man­kind — Lun­ar Eclipse with Mars

Inspiration is the motor for improvement

Did I ever tell the story, … why I love a spe­cial kind of city sky­line images? It was some time ago, when I was look­ing for some­thing wide, some­thing quite wide, some­thing quite large and some­thing … quite old. I found a Zeiss Ikon Ercona, a 6x9 tech­nic­al won­der from the early fifties -…… Con­tin­ue read­ing Inspir­a­tion is the motor for improvement

El norte de España

In spring 2016 I trav­elled to North­ern Spain, vis­it­ing the Basque Coun­try, Can­tab­ria, Aragon and Castile and Leon. Fly­ing to Bil­bao and head­ing to our first loc­a­tion in San Sebasti­an, we made a stop­over in Zumaia. The little town is nice … but more fam­ous is its rock form­a­tion — The Fly­sch. The land­scape is…… Con­tin­ue read­ing El norte de España

Australian Adventure — Classic Cars

Nice inter­me­di­ate … in Mel­bourne, when vis­it­ing the Queen Vic­tor­ia Mar­ket, we found a Clas­sic Car Show with loads of beau­ti­ful cars. As men­tioned before, I find col­our and black&white very pleas­ing. This was a Cadillac Fleet­wood Series 75 Sedan (1960). Here the phant­ast­ic col­ours … … and here come the beau­ti­ful black&white. Enjoy 😉…… Con­tin­ue read­ing Aus­trali­an Adven­ture — Clas­sic Cars

Blossom Impressions …

The last days I had some fun in the garden, as lots of flowers are giv­ing their very best to make this time an amaz­ing col­our­ful one. I was lucky shoot­ing three cameras/lens com­bin­a­tions. Echin­acea / Sonnen­hut, shot with Pentax LX, Pentax‑A SMC 2.8/28mm, Agfa Vista 400. Anemone hupe­hen­sis / Herbst-Anemone shot with Fuji X100s…… Con­tin­ue read­ing Blos­som Impressions …
