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.

2019-11-10 POPPIES IN BLOOM

My wife Karin and I were in the “Poppy-Village” Armschlag in the Waldviertel. You get noodles, marmalade, jam, chocolate – everything mixed with poppy seeds. The poppy trail shows dozens of different poppy varieties, and it was luck; all were blooming in full splendor.

2019-11-04 MY DAUGHTER’S BIRTHDAY

The family was sitting in the Restaurant Plachutta. After order, before the food arrived, I was ready to take some birthday photos from my daughter Cara. Not the best light, but with the lens fully open and adjusted ISO no problem at all.

2019-11-03 FOLK MUSIC

Different countries, different folk music. I attended with my wife and friends the pumpkin festival in Zellerndorf. The village lies in the rural region of Lower Austria. We were sitting with a marinated pork roast sandwich and a sparkling Rose Prosecco at a wine cellar. Behind me, the musicians started with their performance — the right time to bring out my Leica X Vario and take some photos of the concert.

2019-10-28 WE WANT TO REACH THE GOAL

When hiking, it is very helpful to note the signs. A detour can extend over several kilometers, and then the return journey could be very tedious. Especially if you are already in the dark. I’ve already experienced myself and have just made it to the valley.

2019-10-10 MY DAUGHTER IN A CASTLE

On Sunday we were invited to a classical concert in Eckartsau Castle. My mother-in-law is a singer in a choir, and her conductor organized the event. I took the opportunity to shoot several photos of my daughter in the corridors of the castle. And again, an excellent opportunity to use my Leica M240.

2019-09-29 UP ON THE MOUNTAINS

The last meters up, the way was surrounded by traipses, my daughter Cara was fit anyway, she likes spinning and going to the gym. A mountain walk is not that challenge for her. This plateau on the Rax was relatively easy to handle. Interesting to see some little snowfields on 2000 meters, though it was mid-summer.

2019-09-22 MOUNTAIN HUT ON THE RAX

After a long march on the mountain plateau, we look forward to stopping in the mountain hut. There were hearty meals such as ploughman’s lunch and roast pork. For dessert we ordered a Germknödel, this is a fluffy yeast duff dumpling. A classic meal in the Austrian mountains.
