A little collection from my first Brocken-Challenge 80K participation. It's a charity ultra-marathon that leads from Göttingen to the top of Northern Germany's highest mountain, the Brocken.
It's a lovely course that passes open fields and villages before entering the Harz national forrest and finally leading up the mountain peak with alpine climate conditions.
While the last two years participants were struggeling with huge amounts of fresh snow along the way, this year's weather conditions were rather moderate. Whereas moderate says, you still better get some extra spikes or tracks beneath your feet.
It's a tremendous race, huge compliments towards all volunteers who cared so much for the runners, before, during and after the race.
If somebody's looking for a real challenge: here you have it!

This is one of the reasons why G+ has become that great!
 
The Setting Sun || A 2 bottle minimum

When I arrived in Venice last June, I was exhausted. I really didn’t want to do anything. -- This is rare for me too. I’m usually always amped up to go shooting. -- So knowing that I had a few days to get the shots I wanted, I resolved to grab a few cheap bottles of wine and call it a day.

Before I went out though, I decided to check the weather. You know, just to help mentally plan the next few days of shooting... And then...

##@^^#@#ER#$# ARRGGHHH!!!! The forecast called for the next 10 days of solid rain! WTF?! Really?!

To make a long (and angry) story short, this is one of the few photos that I shot in Venice. It was also one of the only spouts of real sun in a 10 day rainy spell.

On a little side note however, it turns out that my camera bag fits 2 bottles of wine inside the pockets. That’s a win for sure. ^_^

#Ingress is about to conclude its beta stadium.
 
We, at Niantic Labs at Google, are really excited to let you know that our biggest milestone since the introduction of Ingress is just around the corner: On December 14, 2013, when our worldwide 9-week, 39-city global player event called Operation #13MAGNUS concludes, Ingress will exit Beta.

So today, we have several important announcements to share:  

First off, we are dropping the invitation code requirement so that we can welcome all Android players into our Beta. We look forward to welcoming new Agents into the global Ingress community. Beginning now, you can join the worldwide action by downloading Ingress on Google Play at http://goo.gl/KIshWr

Niantic Labs would also like to thank Agents around the world who have supported us during the beta, so today we are also announcing a special one-time badge: The Founder Medal.  All Agents that reach Level 5 by December 14, 2013 will qualify for a special achievement for their early support of the Ingress experience.  

Additionally, we are excited to announce The Ingress Elite V challenge. From Monday, November 4 through the culmination of Operation #13MAGNUS on Saturday, December 14, all Ingress Agents will be eligible to participate in this challenge to identify the five (5) most elite Agents from around the world. Measured by a wide set of Ingress performance stats and a creative social media submission, the winning Ingress Agents will be flown to California for Top Secret Ingress briefings in February 2014 and a special interview with +Susanna Moyer from The Ingress Report at http://www.youtube.com/ingress. Details on the Ingress Elite V challenge can be found at http://goo.gl/Cxfo1b
 
As part of Operation #13MAGNUS, a new chapter in global gameplay is about to emerge. At the beginning of #13MAGNUS, the XM entity known as Roland Jarvis was shattered into 13 pieces. These shards scattered throughout the world. Now, Enlightened Agents must reunite them in order resurrect their leader. Resistance Agents will be seeking to destroy the shards, and by doing so, rid the world of Roland Jarvis forever. This effort will literally span the globe as Agents from the over 200 countries where Ingress is currently being played cooperate to achieve their goal, leading to the final confrontation at the end of #13MAGNUS on December 14, 2013.

"Ingress is a game of exploration and discovery in the real world, as well as a way to join in with an amazing global community of Ingress Agents," said +John Hanke, VP in charge of Google’s Niantic Labs. "Our journey over the past year has taken us to live events in more than 80 cities around the world, more than one million downloads of the Ingress app, and more than one million Portals discovered and submitted by Ingress Agents. Two ebooks, a comic book series, and a weekly YouTube show, ‘The Ingress Report’ paint a rich picture of the Ingress world. And Agents have made it their own with more than 2,000 Ingress user communities created on global social networks and countless designs for shirts, badges, jewelry and other objects. More than a dozen Agents have gone so far as to tattoo the Ingress logos on their bodies! A huge thank you to all of the amazing people that have been part of the Ingress journey so far. You have helped make Ingress what it is and have inspired us with so many amazing stories about meeting one another and finding new ways to explore and interact with our world. We can’t wait to see how players continue to make Ingress and the real world a more fun and inspiring place."

I know a lot of people who do know, yet I assume most of all people don't.
