2021-07-12 THE SILENCE OF THE LAKE

The large lake between Austria and Hungary is called Lake Neusiedl. It’s only 1.5-2 meters deep with a very muddy bottom. You often sink up to your knees in the mud. Reeds grow on the banks, the lake is called a steppe lake. Often one has the impression of standing in front of a sea, the horizon is so vast.

2021-07-03 MORNING SUN ON A GLACIER

To avoid the long queue of people, we were very early at the valley station of the Dachstein glacier. Once at the top, we were rewarded with sunshine between the dark clouds. A short time later, the sun outshone the clouds and began to illuminate the glacier.

2021-06-29 A HOT SUMMER DAY

We visited the garden exhibition at Eckartsau Palace with my brother Christian. At 33 degrees Celsius, it was a hot summer day. It would help if you took pictures with high shutter speeds at intense sunshine; I left that to the Leica M8, with the shutter wheel in the “A” position. The camera selected 1/1000 for the photo.

2021-06-12 THE TREES IN LAXENBURG

Laxenburg is an excursion destination for a leisurely afternoon. You walk between meadows, ponds, and tall trees. Sometimes I am surprised that I often like simple photos in nature better than I could imagine when I took the pictures.

2021-05-07 MOUNTAIN PEAKS IN TYROL

The Austrian state of Tyrol is located in the mountains. There are many ways to explore the mountains from the city of Ischgl. I am particularly taken with the mountain peaks, with the majestic masses of rock and snow.

2021-04-26 WILD BOAR

My wife Karin and I were able to take pictures of the wild boar unnoticed in the beginning. After a short time, we were noticed, and the animal headed towards us. A chain-link fence protected us but we still searched the distance. The wild boar tried to lift the fence with its trunk, good that we were then far away enough.

2021-04-10 LEICA 3D POP

While waiting for a Schnitzel-Burger I took some street portraits of my son Dorian. The Leica M9 combined with the Summilux 50mm 1.4 Gen 3 brings the often mentioned Leica 3D pop. The photo is out-of-camera.

Spring awakens, the warmth comes back. I rarely take photos of flowering plants, but then I am always fascinated by colors’ splendor.

2021-02-22 WALKING THROUGH THE FOG

This time we decided to take a Sunday morning walk. We were with friends on a hill called Bisamberg. Some were disappointed because we couldn’t enjoy the prospect of a unique view from the top but, for me, an opportunity to take photos of the foggy trees.
