… and another shot from my last series.
I planned to watch this year’s Perseid meteor shower at a mountain cabin (‘Mödlingerhütte’), at an altitude of 1523m. Unfortunately the sky was quite overcast and only a part of the southern night sky was clear for viewing the stars. Nevertheless, I enjoyed being outside at night and tried to capture a few interesting shots.
Equipment used: E-M5II & 12mm f2.0 lens.
As an afternoon activity, I practiced a bit on macro-photography today.
I used a small self-built model of Darth Vader’s TIE fighter in front of a dark background and added light and smoke effects with some LEDs and an electronic cigarette (*g*). The whole setup was quite simple with a flashlight as the light source and not much else besides the added ‘special effects’.
Both images were taken with the E-M5 kit lens in macro mode and post-processed in Lightroom to tweak the colors.
At the start of my vacation and roundtrip in Tyrol & Bavaria, I visited the Bergisel ski jumping hill and stadium in Innsbruck, Austria.
In the mostly empty stadium the colorful patterns immediately appealed to me and I enjoyed trying out various angles and compositions with only one available focal length.
All images were taken with my M-Zuiko 25mm f1.8 lens – this was my choice as a single ‘travel lens’ (due to the restriction of having only 1 small backpack with me).
