today i did another boat trip on the zürich lake, after getting up pretty early. it was really nice, as the weather was great (the sun was burning, but not too bad), and it was pretty empty. i got one of the seats in the very front of the boat. listening to great music (unholy‘s really great for that, as is vintersorg’s a cosmic genesis). here are some impressions:
posts about telephoto lens. (page 1.)
on the way to sundance canyon.
to reach the sundance canyon, one has to walk a bit through beautiful nature.
the first picture still belongs to the way to the canyon. the canyon itself is going upwards, a small river is floating downwards. it’s pretty steep, as you can see. when one reaches the top, one gets a pretty neat view.
on the way back.
the way back featured several other great views.
finally, we reached the banff hot springs, which are not in use anymore to ensure the living of the banff springs snail. this is a kind of snail which basically only lives at exactly this place.
the banff springs hotel.
the bow falls.
another thing one can see from there are the bow falls, a pretty low (just a few meters) waterfall.
well, last but not least, a really big thanks to all involved in making this trip possible!
yesterday, i made a short trip to downtown calgary. the first time during my stay. after a quick walk through downtown, i decided to walk trough some parks. here are some impressions. enjoy!
on monday, before barbecuing, my friend and mine went out another time to fly with his quadcopter. this time, i brought my not so new anymore toy. here’s a small excerpt out of the tons of pictures i took:
its fascinating to see the quality of the pictures, compared to the ones from last time: almost no blurring (mainly because of faster shutter speed), way less noise (which, if happening, is not as disturbing as the resolution is way higher), better zoom, and so on…
i recently read that there was a study which showed that in germany, the weather is statistical significantly worse on weekends. well, if i compare the last two day’s sky—filled with clouds—to today’s sky—bright light—, i’d say that’s right. well, on the evening, shortly before it became dark (but, well, there was still way more light than on the two previous days), i took a small walk through the neighborhood and shot some photos. here are some of the results.
i agan managed to catch a flying bird; see the three pictures to the right. i’m not sure whether the one on the left is the same (or of the same kind) as the one on the right…
i also made a few zooms. two of them i think are especially good. the first is this one:
the second is this one:
some more photos from today:
the barbwire picture is actually a 1:1 excerpt from the image generated by the camera. and the ivy picture is a downsampled version of a 3616 × 6368 panorama made out of five photos.
today, the sun was shining bright, even though it was really cold outside. i decided to do a small trip. here are some impressions, taken in another nature protection area nearby:
actually, i was able to catch a bird flying high up in the sky with my telephoto lens:
i’ve got another toy:
well, it’s more a tool than a toy, and it’ll become an integral component of my daily life… at least, for the next three months. here are some close-ups:
well. today i did my first outdoor tests with my new toy. here are some of the results, which i like .
i took the following pictures in the nature protection area next to the place where i’m staying at the moment.
i like trees, as some of you probably already noticed :)
besides trees, i also like my new telephoto lens.
