blue hour Basilica

On the same walk where I shot the evening sky, on my way back to the car, I noticed the Basilica Mariatrost in a really great evening light. I have no tripod with me, so I took the shot with the 70-200mm freehand, what left some room open for composition. Well, next time.

A shot from  last winter – we are still waiting for snow here in middle Europe. I like the simplicity in this one…

Another group of swans

Another shot from the Murauen, south of Graz, Austria. Seems that a not so small group of swans (more than in the picture) has chosen that place as their home over the winter. So I’m sure will return in the coming weeks the seek for more shooting opportunities.

studio ducks

I got some little lighting gadgets recently. Well, maybe they seem little to me, because I normally have some “bigger” toys at my disposal. Anyway, I had to start to experiment with these stands and umbrellas and flashes immediately, and this little yellow fellow was just right for me.

snow capped

I know, it can’t compete with what is up snow-wise in the US at the moment – but this is my first landscape shot with snow at the season.
