2018-02-24   THEME PARK IN EDINBURGH

The theme park in Edinburgh presented itself as a colorful wonderland with dozens of attractions for the younger and older. A fun walk tour to watch and explore. I found a parapet to place my mini-tripod and take some long exposure shots to catch all the lights and colors. Making the pictures with lower iso was essential. Otherwise, the lights would look blown out in some cases. That’s the reason, why I am more and more a fan of mini-tripods. 🙂

2018-02-23   SAN FRANCISCO FROM THE TWIN PEAKS

Here I was standing on the Twin Peaks observation deck above San Francisco. The name Twin Peaks has nothing to do with the TV series of David Lynch, those are two hills with height at about 275 m (925 ft) which gives a great view of the city and the surrounding areas like the harbor and the sea. I was lucky, no fog, clear and blue sky, I used that perfect weather conditions for some nice city view shots.  🙂

2018-02-22   MUSEUM IN EDINBURGH

The entry into the Edinburgh National Museum was utterly free of charge; it presents a broad range of exhibits from science to biology to fashion. The balconies on the higher floors were perfect to place my camera to enable stabilized wide angle shots. Some rooms and halls reminded my of picture-books with a vast amount of exhibits to explore.

2018-02-21   EXHIBITION IN THE CELLARS

The Schlumberger cellars show you the history and production of their renowned champagne. There must have been used millions of bricks to build those massive cellar-vaults. The different stations of the exhibition show barrels, bottles in particular positions for the vinification and some funny exhibits like this bottle on a pedestal, which you can see in the photo.

2018-02-20   SHEIKH ZAYED MOSQUE IN THE EVENING

I think I stayed in this mosque from later afternoon until night. It is one of the buildings I will ever remember. With the beginning of the evening, I tried to capture the light, shining from the arches. The lightning is part of the architecture and harmonized with the colors and structure of the building.

2018-02-19   WALK THROUGH SAGRADA FAMILIA

Filming the impressive church Sagrada Familia – this was the plan. I placed my YI 4K Action cam on an appropriate bezel which I stuck on a Zhiyun gimbal. I started on the west entrance, walked through into the big hall and went a whole round. Although many tourists were inside, I got a good impression of this one-of-a-kind building. Inside was heavy construction work, the structure of this great church continues and will last until 2026.

2018-02-18   SHOP WINDOWS IN VIENNA

On one of my evening trips through the inner city of Vienna, I saw that correctly crafted shop windows. Such interior decors differ from the rest and are real art-pieces to look at. Always well for a photo which stands out from the traditional shopping street.

2018-02-17   FLOWERS IN SINGAPORE

Walking out of the ArtScience Museum I saw that little water lake with waterlilies. I placed my camera to focus on the flower, to get that blurry background of the buildings and the mirroring of the scene in the still water. I was lucky that I could catch the sunset during the golden hour.  🙂

2018-02-16   NARROW STREETS IN MALTA

Some of the older streets in Malta fit only for pedestrians or motor scooters. They are narrow and contorted; it’s a unique experience to walk through these city-parts and look at the entry-doors and shops. This photo shows a street near Mdina. There was a famous pastizzi shop very near, they baked fresh, and people were waiting in a long line to get that specialty.

2018-02-15   GARDENS OF THE BAY IN BLUE

You have to go up on the 6th floor of the Marina Bay Sands and walk over a bridge to the observation deck. Be sure to be there half an hour before the lightning spectacle starts. The place gets crowded very fast, and some minutes before the start, there is a bit a turmoil where everyone takes his smartphone or camera and positions for shooting. However, I could defend my place and got cool photos of that area in many different colors. 🙂
