A diptych of Alpenglow on the Loferer Steinberge range in Austria. I just stumbled over this old, old set of images. They’re from November 2008, which was my second year “into” photography with a DSLR (and my second camera body already, the unique Fuji Finepix S5pro* – too bad Fuji stopped making DSLRs based on Nikon bodies!).
A few impressions from a twilight walk in the woods around the Huckinger lakes in Austria.
This is an archive post, added to the site in December 2018, and dated back to September 2010, when I actually made the photos. “Ents” has been online as part of my “Huckinger Seen” portfolio for a very long time. Fine art prints of Huckinger See are available in my print-on-demand store (if you wish to have a photo as print that is missing in the store, please contact me).
Cornflowers (Centaurea cyanus) are the prettiest heralds of summer – their intensely blue colored ray florets reflect a lot of ultraviolet light and are easily notable and highly attractive in fields of young grains like wheat, barley, rye or oat. Each cornflower is a bouquet! They have a ring of ray florets surrounding a central cluster of disc florets.
Visiting Huckinger See (Hucking Lakes) after a rainfall, late in May. It’s quiet, the birds are still hiding, the only sound is the dripping of water when the wind moves the branches and they gently shake off the rain onto the forest floor and into the little moory ponds.
Between Ettenhausen in Bavaria (Germany) and Kössen in Tyrol (Austria), the “Tiroler Ache” river found its way through through vertically rising layers of rocks. One particularly interesting area are the narrows at “Entenlochklamm”, where the steep rocky walls rise on both sides of the river.
