2018-02-02   FIREWOOD IN TYROL

By | 2018-02-02T19:30:27+00:00 February 2nd, 2018|Tyrol|

In many areas of Tyrol, people gather wood during the summer and store it in front of their houses. Very cheap way to heat the homes in the winter months this way. Manual labor, effort and time are required, and you get a big pile of stovewood.

2017-12-08  PAZNAUN VALLEY IN TYROL

By | 2017-12-08T15:19:01+00:00 December 8th, 2017|Tyrol|

With my permission for drones, I am allowed to fly in nature. The rule is the area must be uninhabited, thinly populated with only shacks and barns, some hikers around. So you have a large field for drone flying in the Alps of Tyrol. In the cold winter months, the battery lasts only for 15 minutes, half the time of the warmer months. Better to have two pieces with you.

2017-11-09  SNOWY MOUNTAINS FROM A GLACIER

By | 2017-11-08T22:46:47+00:00 November 9th, 2017|Tyrol|

On a glacier, height over 3.000 meters, the air has a particular breath. It’s clear, clean and lighter. The view is excellent with the sunny weather; I could take shots from different mountain chains. Here the Silvretta Arena in Tyrol. I didn’t have skis with me, that day was reserved for photo shooting. I was the only person on the top with winter shoes under all the skiers. I walked around on the snow plateau of the Greitspitz, where downhill on the left side is Switzerland and Austria on the right.

2017-08-21  CORRIDOR AFTER CRYSTAL WORLDS EXIT

By | 2017-08-20T18:51:15+00:00 August 21st, 2017|Tyrol|

By leaving the exit door of the Swarovski Crystal Worlds exhibition, you go through that corridor which shows glass and crystal exhibits like full frame woman clothing,  animal sculptures like bulls or parrots, art antiques – all made of crystal. They are in boxes, lined with red velvet and lighted with LED lamps. The price tag is a bit from the higher side, so we stayed with a brio which had a crystal on its end, which we bought at the exhibition store.  🙂

2017-07-29  ROBOTS ARE THE FUTURE

By | 2017-07-26T20:00:41+00:00 July 29th, 2017|Tyrol|

Though that’s only a fun simulation of robotics, it represents the symbol of robots which will look like humans, as seen in Swarovski Crystal World. Many have already the vacuum cleaners, robotics lawn mowers or the swimming pool cleaners at home. Soon we will see the robots as helpers in the household, guides in hotels, autonomous drivers, physical avatars, a broad spectrum of use cases awaits us. I think there is no reason to get afraid; it will have a significant impact for the better. 🙂

2017-06-20  ZUCCHERO CONCERT ON THE MOUNTAINS

By | 2017-06-04T17:34:47+00:00 June 20th, 2017|Tyrol|

The Tyrolese ski resort Ischgl brought Italian superstar Zucchero (=sugar) for this year’s ski season closing concert. The show occurred on the Idalp, a mountain plateau at 2307m (2522 yds). Year by year about 20,000 people find their way up to this concert arena, which only can be reached by ski lifts. For me, it was one of the relatively rare occasions where I could use my Tele lenses. The event starts about 1 pm and lasts for about 3 hours, where party atmosphere takes place.  🙂 You got a cool Italian Prosecco/Aperol spritz drink.

The arena:

 

Closer to Zucchero, here I used my Sony FE 70-200 F/4 lens:

2017-06-13  CRYSTAL JELLYFISH

By | 2017-06-03T17:58:59+00:00 June 13th, 2017|Tyrol|

The Swarovski Crystal Worlds bring a new surprise in every room you enter. Where have you ever seen a crystal jellyfish in this colorfulness? In most of the rooms it’s dark, so take lenses with 1.4 or 1.8 F-stops and a camera which is capable of shooting high iso in good quality. I took my Sony Zeiss 24mm F2 and Sony A7S. Tripods are not allowed, often the rooms are small, and a steady flow of visitors are going.

2017-05-16  WOODLAND FROM METAL

By | 2017-05-15T19:16:48+00:00 May 16th, 2017|Tyrol|

Red crystals, stainless steel trunks, steel wool – ingredients for a woodland? In the Swarovski Crystal World, this phenomenon exists 🙂 , designed by contemporary artists like Cao Perrot, Kwangho Lee and others; you will visit an area full of inspiration and modern chic. I lost my companions two times minimum because I was so busy taking photos. I would plan minimum half a day for this great experience.

2017-04-28  BIRCHES IN THE SUN

By | 2017-04-25T19:36:36+00:00 April 28th, 2017|Tyrol|

It was near Wattens, Tyrol, where we stopped for a walk after a 6-hour drive. At every journey, trip or walk I have a camera with me, minimum my iPhone. That time it was my Sony A7S with the Sony Zeiss SAL 24 F2. And the opportunity arose, to shoot this photo of the beautiful birches at the wayside.

2017-02-05 TYPICAL LANDSCAPE IN TYROL

By | 2017-02-04T19:04:54+00:00 February 5th, 2017|Tyrol|

What makes a Tyrolean landscape? A green valley, a wild river, wooden huts, conifer forest and mixed forest on hills which grow up to a mountain, and fresh air  🙂  If you take your jogging sneakers on for nordic walking or a longer run in this nature, then you have made a good contribution for a healthy lifestyle.
