02/52 - Birds at Lake of Constance

Was out with my wife's D5300 and the 200-500mm to practice shooting.
I didn't found the birds I've expected, but these guys looked good too.

(1) A flock of gulls


(2) Resting


(3) All kinds...


Was it cold that day...

03/52 - Allgäu - Paradies

After 6 weeks of mist, fog and clouds I took my car and drove to the Allgäu. 300m higher I reached the sun.
There's a place called "Paradies" (paradise) and I took a small walk there.

(1) Panorama to the south. That are the Austrian Alps.


(2) Frozen snow - so it felt a kind of crunchy...


Kind regards
Klaus

04/52 - River "Argen" iced

This week I like to show you some pictures of the river Argen.
The Argen is the only river to Lake of Constance that stayed natural in it's apearance.

(1) The ghost


(2) Bubbly water ...


(3) ... to be continued


(4) Fallen tree


The shooting was curious...
I had my D5300 equipped with the 200-500mm for shooting birds. Much to loooooong for a river shooting. So I got these detail shots.

Regards
Klaus

07/52 - The old times...

Well, excuse me for posting belated. First I was scanning old pictures and the the influenca got me :confused:.

I was scanning old pictures from the early 90's last week.
Perhaps you know, I was a big vintage car fan for decades. From 1978 to 1995 I drove an Opel GT, later a 69 Corvette.

These two pictures were taken analogue in 1993 when we had a meeting in Vienna / Austria.

(1) The fourth car on the left side was mine.


(2) The Stefan's cathedral downtown


Scanned the pictures with 600 dpi and made a PS treatment to all of them.
What a progress the DSLRs are... :love::D(y).

Kind regards
Klaus

09/52 - Durlesbach

Eh? What? Where? ...

Durlesbach is a very little village somewhere in Schwabian - the bigger region I'm living.
This village got famous by the nursery rhyme "Auf der schwäbschen Eisenbahne". OK, I'll try a translation: "Riding the Schwabian railroad".
You have to know that this railroad from Ulm to Friedrichshafen stopped at every village, don't matter how small it was.

The legend tells, one day there was a farmer who was very closefisted came back from market. He had bought a billy-goat and don't wanted to pay a seperate ticket for it.
So he tied it at the back of the last waggon. Imagine what happed...

This memorial was erected by Alfons Walz in 1991. He bought that train in Poland and ordered the figurines from the artist Rene Auer. To honor Mr. Walz, the conductor got the face of him.

(1) The station


(2) The farmer and the goat


(3) A concerned passenger


(4) The farmer


(5) The conductor


All pictures were taken with the D700 and the infamous 14-24mm f2.8.

Here'a a link to the nursery rhym:

Have fun
Klaus
