  • Amden and hunting for Eagle

    Last few months were not very productive regarding my photographic adventures, mostly because of the poor weather, secondly because I was missing my inspiration. Nevertheless, after many weeks of rain and overcast sky, a time of good weather visited Switzerland. To enjoy views and also not to overextend ourselves, we decided to go to Amden…
  • Raspberry Pi based home made light meter for analogue camera

    As soon as I bought my first medium format camera, Yashica MAT 124G I realized that there will have a problem with exposure meter. First of all, camera was released in 1970, so the light meter is not very accurate. Secondly, it uses mercury 1.35V batteries which are no longer available and only expensive and…

    Finally! Second part of of pictures from our La Reunion Adventures. After calm beginning on the island we slowly started to discover south and middle part of La Reunion.

    This year our annual hiking day was organized late September in St. Galen canton. Early in the morning we took the train and the bus to reach our destination which was St. Johann. We hiked a little and had a lunch BBQ in a beautiful valley close to the pond. Second part of the hike, however,…
  • Analog Diary I

    For already quite some time I am an enthusiast of analogue photography. Everything started in late 2015 when I have won Nikon FE on auction for 17 CHF. I have never shot before with analogue so it was a completely new experience. My first roll had only 40% of good pictures - rest of them…
  • Como – Italian Adventure

    In the middle of June, together with friends, we went for a weekend to Italy. Silvia, my italian lab mate, organized a wonderful trip to Como and Cantu. What should I write more? Perfect weather, delicious food and Como lake. Weather was ideal for sunbathing but unfortunately not so great for photos - very hard…
  • Walensee and Weesen hike

    Few weeks ago we wanted to go somewhere for a hike but possibly close to lake. Because Zurich lake is almost fully urbanised and there are very few real hiking routs we chose to go to the next bigger lake - Walensee. It was already our third hike in the Walensee area but this time…
  • Hiking day in Filzbach

    For a long time we wanted to visit Filzbach and mountains in the neighborhood because of the excellent view on the Walensee and Walenstadt and a cable-car which allows to start hiking already at the decent height. It is also good to mention that it takes only 1h to get there from Zurich HB. We took…

I took it with the old Nikon D60 and Sigma 17-50 mm during my first real winter hike in Switzerland. From the pictures sent in the competition I really liked the…
