2020-07-03 MY WIFE ON THE BIKE

After the Czech border visit, we were on the way to my brother’s wife’s house. The wheat fields continued in Austria. For this photo, I could catch a storehouse for the wheat after harvesting. That’s typical for the rural areas in Lower Austria.

2020-06-11 TREE IN THE DANUBE FLOODPLAINS

While I was walking with my brother in the Danube Floodplains, I was searching for some photo opportunities. The landscape there is flat and green with grass and bushes, that’s it. But in this clearing, I found my picture of the day. A majestic tree is always good for a photo.

2020-06-06 THE MYSTERY GARDEN AROUND THE CASTLE

I saw that garden around the Eckartsau Castle, which got a mystery touch with the Leica M240 jpg-setting for “strong color film.” With this style, the garden can be used for scary movies where a group of teenagers explore an old castle and get into trouble during their excursion. Or a Hitchcock thriller where the showdown ends in a castle.

2020-05-29 THE DOOR OF THE CASTLE

I revisited the wedding castle of my brother Christian, together with his wife. Such old buildings often bring unique opportunities for photos. When I saw the entrance with the incoming sunlight, it was immediately apparent what the picture of the day would be. I waited until some action occurred. The Eckartsau castle was the hunting lodge of the Austrian heir to the throne, Franz Ferdinand.

2020-05-14  SUNSET AT THE WÖRTHER SEE

The lake I love most is the Wörther See in Austria. Surrounded by green mountains with crystal clear water it’s a joy to jump into and swim. As you can see, also the sunsets are wonderful. Therefore in the evening, it’s time for a photography session.

2020-04-30  THE FLAT LAND

Burgenland is the flattest state in Austria. Peaty soils and a Pannonian climate characterize the area around Lake Neusiedl. A quiet landscape without dramatic mountains, waterfalls, and exotic plants, which is reduced to a few colors and restrained accents.

2020-04-14  MY LAST VISITED HOTEL

The photo shows my room in the hotel Tulbingerkogel. It was at the yearly congress of my company where we discuss the strategies and future developments. Currently, all hotels are closed in Austria. The earliest will be the end of May for the tourism sector to open again.

2020-02-03  MUSIC IN KITZBÜHEL

This band brought Rock ‘n Roll. Equipped with wind instruments and drums, they marched through the old town of Kitzbühel and stopped in front of the Hahnehnkamm slope to give a concert. I had to work my way through several rows of visitors to get this photo.

2019-11-29  THE WORKING MAN

This man is doing a real craft. It is called woodturning, similar to a lathe for metalworking. In the shop next door, you could buy chairs and tables. For some, it’s a hobby, for only a few a profession. The scene was shot in Lower Austria.

2019-11-16 THE GREAT BOKEH

I think the Leica Vario Elmar 35-70mm is one of the best lenses I ever owned. Even with F4, which is fully open, it produces impressing bokeh. The color rendition is perfect. It is so good on the Sony A7S that I preferred it over the Leica M240 on my last photo tour. The real reason is that focusing is a bit easier. Since it is a Leica R lens, you have to use it with an adapter on the Leica M and the Leica electronic viewfinder. And you can get this lens under € 400.
