Little Trabant adventures

Sorry for not posting lately. I somehow got lost in social media. Posting on Instagram and then I forget to post it here. Should think about using IFTTT to streamline such activities.

Not that spectacular right now, as winter has come and we got plenty of snow here as well. But the little Trabant has been with me at Weißsee Gletscherwelt last summer. Hopefully its journey will continue.

Kaprun High Mountain Reserviores


Dam and lake Wasserfallboden as seen from lake Mooserboden. Both lakes are forming the high mountain reserviores of Kaprun. Caused by the unfortunate weather I was not able to have a look at the surrounding summits (Kitzsteinhorn, Großes Wiesbachhorn etc.)

But hey, fresh snow and walking in the clouds! The photo was taken pretty much at 2000 m above sea level.

Frozen Summer



This photo perfectly describes my summer vacation this year. With its 2304m above sea level, this spot is a great starting point for hiking trips – if it would have been snowless. Lucky as I was, I got 10cm of fresh snow and a temperature slightly below zero. It would have been refreshing, if it was hot down in the valley. But it wasnt. Summer vacation in Austria this year: autumn with a touch of winter.

Still snowy.

Took this one in the early morning a few weeks ago. Can’t remember exactly about my thoughts at that moment but I guess I just was frustrated about the ongoing appearance of snow. I like the backlight situation and the resulting long shadows 

This photo was originally puplished on my Instagram account.


Snow fun

Time goes by too fast. I still haven’t touched alle the photos taken in 2013. I slowly crawl through all of them and will finish them. One day.
On the other hand I’m sometimes not sure in which way the different pictures I take should be published. Traditional way is to shoot with the camera, develop them on a computer (or in a lab in between) and publish them here first and sharing them on social media afterwards. But today, I photograph all that daily stuff with a smartphone and puplish the result instantly. If they have an art character, they will appear on Instagram first and maybe Twitter and Facebook afterwards. As I don’t use it frequently, most photos will not appear on Google+ or Tumblr. And the platforms I like most are completely bypassed by my smartphone photography: This website, DeviantArt and Flickr.
As already done on the posts before, I will repost particular photos of my Instagram stream here as well.
This photo here was taken on the way to Oberhof in December last year. The only snow I have seen this winter and we went there for an afternoon in the snow. Was fun!
