After two years of absence we finally managed to return to an old habit to spent New Year’s Eve in the Netherlands, together with friends. Today went for a nice little walk along the beach and were observed by this little seal. Guess he just wanted to wish you all a happy and delightful new year – so do I. Happy new year!
Every 5 years, I meet up with some friends from highschool and usually we rent a old shed in Isny/Allgäu to spent a long weekend together. This year we were too slow and undecisive and the Hammerschmiede (that’ s the name of the old house) was already occupied. We ended up with a new stay nearby which was, in contrast to the old one, atop of a vast meadow, with tons of birds around and plain view. This night I sneaked away from the daily booze and chat and setup my camera. No real startrails, but nice, non the less….
The sea is a good place to think things over. Nothing more to say…
Okay, it is not wearing a bandana and isn’t that cute like in the old kiddie flick Biene Maja, but beautyful in a way. Found it in Karins garden, not far from our veranda.
Day 7 of our trip and we reached Preikestolen, a huge plateau, 604m above the sea. Here’s the spectaculare view, along the Lysefjord. Sadly, the sun won’t come out but is still a great sight.
A lot of rainy days, we had on our trainings camp, Flühlen, Switzerland, 1400 above sea level.
One picture form the first set, I took with my new D50. Weather was fairly bad that day and sun was about to disappear. I had to hunt down something in my appartment. So Krümelmonster, as he is calledn in germany, was my first victim. I should have undusted him in first place, but I bet you know what it is like to have a new toy: You don’t care about details. That’s why the whole image is not sharp eather. I just wanted it to be the first post here, as it was almost the first picture I took….
