Home of the birds part II

Thursday, 28 June 2018

I prepared three series of images which contain new spring pictures of the Neusiedler See - Seewinkel National Park. Two of them are bird only and as you can see this is the second one. Although I was only out a few times, this spring sessions were actually quite productive for me. As mostly I was just wandering around with my telephoto lens looking what will come my way. For me the most pleasant kind of photography. So I'm already looking forward to my upcoming trips into this area.

Actually I would love to write longer articles in my blog entries, because there are so many stories behind all these images, but unfortunately I just cannot find the time. So at least I basically decide to show some of the new photographs without losing much words. Hope you agree.

The setting sun paints the skies while this little guy performs somewhere in the reed.

When the foliage gets lush again in spring, the birds are way more difficult to discover.

A Great Egret and Gray Geese with ducklings leery crossing each other in the shallow waters of Lake Neusiedl.

One of the most beautiful and rarest birds of Austria.

Low water levels because of the heat and drought druing this late spring.

A Blue Heron hunting in great evening light.

What a romantic morning ;)

Picking up foreign feathers for the own nest.

Definitely one of my favorite birds but mostly very well hidden in the trees.

Home of the birds part I

Sunday, 24 June 2018

Long time no see ... Although half of the year is already over, it's the first time I could manage to go through and process some of my new images and to upload them here. But of course, there's already much more of 2018 in the pipeline and one day I'll find the time to show a little more of my new work here ;) This first set contains bird pictures from Austria's easternmost national park called Neusiedler See - Seewinkel. Since my last exhibition took place in the visitor center of the park, I spent a few days in the area for the installation and the demounting and I could also find some time to grab my camera to take a few images. And as always, to experience the birdlife of the national park was a great pleasure.

A Marsh Harrier spying out the reeds around Lake Neusiedl for prey, while I’m spying out the bird.

Maybe one of the most underestimated birds.

A lovely encounter in the late morning.

Life for young animals mostly isn't as cozy as it looks like ...

Silent hunter in the shallow waters of Lake Neusiedl as the sun sets.

Another Blue Heron looking for dinner right between the edge of the reed and the open water.

Just because I prefer small scale images doesn't mean that I don't have something else in my archive ;) So here's a common kestrel in flight showing its beauty.

Taking a little rest high up in the trees.

Probably the most common bird in the national park.

As you probably already noticed in the title of this blog entry, there will come more bird pictures of this location in one of my next series.

BioPhotoContest 2018

Saturday, 23 June 2018

Again I'm very pleased to announce that some of my images received an award in a prestigious international competition, this time the BioPhotoContest. The yearly topic of this competition always refers to one of the erath's biomes. This year "Prairies, steppes and savannah". So it was actually quite a challenge to compete with Africa's amazing grasslands ;) You can see my successful images below.

Alpine meadows in Austria's highest mountain region.

​A real treasure in an ocean of dew on a meadow in Styria, Austria.

Patagonia also offers lots of vast open spaces dominated by grass and bushes.

What an amazing year so far :) For the first time I succeeded with three photographs in one contest. Make sure to check out all the awarded works. Congratulations to everyone!
