Finally Framed

Took quite a long time till I got some custom frames and glass for my prints, but actually it looks really great! The two large ones are 90 x 60 cm in size and the smaller one 60 x 40 cm!

Radenthein Winterpanorama

A panorama, taken on February 4th, 2014, consisting of 6 single exposures stitched together. The original resolution is > 70Mpix. In winter 2013/14 we got snow late, at the end of January, but really a lot of it. In some other parts of Carinthia there is snow 3m high on top of the houses. Some towns were disconnected from the grid for some days, schools were closed and so on. Doesn't sound that funny, but better like this, than green winter. Just my opinion. We here in Radenthein have around 1m of snow in sum till now, forecast predicts snow for next week again!

Wordpress Blog: My Stock Photo Portfolios

I wanted to write some lines for a long time over there on #wordpress too, so here's it. Think the style looks a bit cleaner than the  one from #blogspot :

Will try to update both in future a little bit, if you show me some support :) Still under development, as I have started to give it a try this morning, so please don't look at it in a too critical way. Hope I can improve the layout and content a little bit the next days if I have time.

Nightview On Döbriach From Raven's Wall

Two days before going up there by night I went there by daylight to check out the location and to know how long it takes me to reach this viewpoint. About half an hour of walk through the woods. There was still some snow on the way, which didn't make hiking up there easy but as always the view compensates the effort!
