February wrap-up

It's been a quiet unproductive month for me due to the meteorological circumstances and the start of my time-consuming civilian service ... BUT there are some photos I still want to show! You might already know them from my flickr or RedBubble pages. If you haven't been there yet, check them out ;-).So here are the photos, enjoy ...The first photos show a weather effect we don't have very often in Austria - freezing rain. Due to the sub-zero temperatures of raindrops they form a layer of ice when hitting surfaces like branches and leafs for example ... and leave some really nice patterns & "ice sculptures". For instance the "floating" ice drop in the first photo.Next thing's an available light photo of my grandfather's 40+ years old Canon FT QL (I FINALLY bought 3 films for this analogue gem). A really nice SLR with a great 55mm f/1.2 lens. Expect some scans once I filled and developed a film :-)And to close this post: The stars in the eyes of Nero ...Have a nice week-end and come back for more great photos! Also, check out my flickr/deviantArt/RedBubble pages. You might discover some shots that were not featured in my blog.Thanks for reading

Hinterstoder, Super-G

Good evening readers!I'm back again and I've brought some new photos with me :-) This time from Hinterstoder (Austria) where I had the chance to capture the men's Super-G ... Well, not the Super-G itself nor the athletes. I simply had no clear vision towards the finish line (too many flags, drunks & poles). So I focused on people and landscape.Ok, I'll cut the usual chit-chat. Enjoy the photos ...Live on Stage: StarMixAward CeremonyPOSNationNameTime+/-1AUTReichelt, Hannes1:43.91---2AUTRaich, Benjamin1:44.25+ 0.343USAMiller, Bode1:44.84+ 0.934SUIJanka, Carlo1:45.06+ 1.155CROKostelic, Ivica1:45.10+ 1.196FRAPinturault, Alexis1:45.15+ 1.24PS: Some girl kindly asked me to take a picture of her and her friends.
