Mission accomplished!

Took some photos, did something for my stamina (photo tour by bike), took a dive in the river (with camera) - That's the summary of yesterday's photo trip! It has been quiet a busy day but I'm pleased with the results:derelic #1derelic #2So this is the old cistern of the railroad (according to my grandfather). It's situated on the western top of the hill "Spitzberg" in Attnang and as you can see, graffiti artists & not-so-artistic sprayers added some color to the gray concrete. Due to its isolated location the place in front of the cistern is a popular place for teens to hang out, have small parties or hide while skipping school.The next photos show a small affluent of the river "Ager" and the flotsam crane of the small embankment dam ... out of ordera silent placeThat's it for today! Stay tuned and eventually leave a comment! :-)

Dear blog,

I'm sooo sorry for neglecting you for 16 long and lonely days! I was lazy but as a German proverb says: "Laziness is the mother of all progress."Dear reader,I therefor want to present the latest photos to you (which actually don't really SHOW "progress" but I've never really tried this kind of photo shooting). They are about water droplets in a sink! Shooting droplets is easy and fun and additionally you can experiment with the flash, shutter priority, aperture and so on. Anyway! Here are two photos summing up the "extremes" of shutter priority ...very short exporureExposure time1/250 sAperturef 5.6looooong exposureExposure time5 sAperturef 22That's it! Hope you like the photos.I'm planning to visit Attnang's derelict cistern on Spitzberg tomorrow if the weather is fine so stay tuned!
