Some pictures from 2014, taken with VTNÖ colleagues at the Tauplitzalm, the National Park Donauauen and in Eastern Styria, among others.

Many of you know that 2014 was a busy year for us, we spent most of our time with the move to our new house. There was not a lot of time left for photography, but there were still quite a few opportunities. Finally, I have now sorted my 2014 pictures and would like to share some of the highlights.

Locations

  • In Eastern Styria, we met Ewald Neffe and Herfried Marek, both active VTNÖ members,  for some macro and wildlife photography. By the way, this was the weekend where I decided to switch to Micro Four Thirds because my backpack was just too heavy to lug around all the time.
  • National Park Donauauen: we met our Naturfotoworkshop friends, Herbert Koeppel and Franz Kovacs, both are also VTNÖ members. The Donauauen are right in front of our doorstep, and we enjoyed spending some time with fellow photographers exploring a well-known area.
  • Tauplitzalm: what an amazing experience, again with Ewald Neffe and Herfried Marek. The night before we arrived, it had snowed so much that we could no longer drive to the hotel. Instead, we enjoyed a short ride on a snow mobile. The next morning, the landscape was beautiful, everything covered in snow. I did a lot of experiments with my Infrared camera.

As always, I had to include various Black & White conversions as well as some Infrared pictures. I realize that 2014 was certainly not overwhelming from a picture section point of view, but I can already promise some interesting projects for 2015!
