Pannonian moments - New gallery

Monday, 27 September 2021

Today I would like to launch another temporary gallery. It shows a few impressions, encounters and sightings of Austria's Neusiedler See - Seewinkel National Park. The images have been taken this year on a trip in late spring and some of them also during a little family camping trip in summer. If you'd like to see more than the nine pictures below, just follow this link to my 2021 Seewinkel gallery. Enjoy.

Pannonian moments - New gallery

A little, and probably very decimated, Gray Goose family gliding through the massive reed belt of Lake Neusiedl.

Black bird, colorful trees.

Actually I was happily shooting some orchids, as this Roe Deer family suddenly crossed the shallow waters at late dusk.

A Crested Grebe completing this gorgeous early morning scene full of pastels and tranquility.

Probably the cutest frogs species here in Austria. The European Tree Frog.

A Marsh Harrier scanning the reed for prey.

A Long-Eared Owl hiding in the trees ...

... and another Long-Eared Owl hiding in the trees.

The chicks and the nest of eggs of ground-breeding birds like the Black-Winged Stilt are extremely hard to spot because of their almost perfect camouflage. So they're facing the threat of being trampled down by humans, as soon as they enter breeding areas.

Presentation changes - 2021 Chess Flowers

Friday, 3 September 2021

Since I'm still more and more struggling to fill this blog with new and meaningful content in time, I was just forced to think about a few changes and finally I decided to end the way I formerly displayed my newer images here in the blog. Due to technical reasons, I could only show up to nine images in one blog post and I just cannot find the time to make as many blog entries as are necessary to show all the images I'd like to and even more I cannot find the time to fit out all these images with the framings, as I did in the past. But for me it's still crucial to show at least a few of my photographs, because that's what they are made for. To be seen. And, unfortunately, I'm also unable to tell all the stories, experiences and thoughts, which actually go hand in hand with the creation of my images. So, as of now, I will create a new hidden and temporary gallery for every new set of pictures I'd like to show. You will find the links to these galleries only here in my news blog entries and I will delete these galleries sooner or later. But, of course, some of the images will finally get a title, framing, watermark/signature, short description, as you know it, and will make it in one of the permanent galleries and/or project galleries and/or the showcase. Hope you agree :) The first of these new temporary galleries shows the long overdue (remaining) Chess Flower pictures of 2021. Enjoy.

Presentation changes - 2021 Chess Flowers

There's hardly anything I enjoy more than looking towards the rising sun on a dew covered meadow of wildflowers ...

... but also the moments of very early dawn are super delightful an soothing.

Bildband Natürliche Nähe

Monday, 28 June 2021

Der Natur mit Fotos ihrer selbst gerecht zu werden, ist wohl kaum möglich. Der Natur mit stark reduzierten Aufnahmen im Internet gerecht zu werden, ist definitiv nicht möglich. Daher steht bereits seit Beginn meines Projektes Natürliche Nähe die Produktion eines Bildbandes als wesentlicher physischer Output und wichtiger Bestandteil fest und es ist nun Zeit für einen ersten Einblick und Teaser.

Bildband Natürliche Nähe

Wie beim gesamten Projekt ist auch hier der Anspruch ein visuell-ästhetischer und weniger ein sachlich-dokumentarischer.

Der Transport von Emotionen, als Schlüssel zur Anerkennung des umfassenden Wertes dieser naturnahen Gebiete, steht klar im Vordergrund.

Neben unzähligen Fotografien aus den oberösterreichischen Augebieten, wird das Werk selbstverständlich auch das eine oder andere Wissenswerte oder Unbekannte, vor allem aber auch kurzweilige persönliche Geschichten zu besonderen Erlebnissen, beinhalten.

Ein Buch zum Schmökern, Inspirieren lassen, Staunen, Träumen und als Motivation aktiv zu werden.

Die Verwirklichung des Bildbandes wird noch einige Zeit in Anspruch nehmen, erscheinen wird dieser voraussichtlich im Frühjahr 2022.

Details, wie etwa Preis oder Seitenzahl werden in den kommenden Wochen bekanntgegeben, das Format steht mit 31x22cm geschlossen bereits fest.

Die Darstellungen zeigen das derzeitige Layout, der fertige Bildband kann davon abweichen.

Alle jene, die nach dieser ersten kleinen Ankündigung bereits Interesse an dem Buch haben, sei herzlich gedankt, wenn sie sich vorab unter photo@rupertkogler.com melden. So wird es wesentlich leichter sein, die Höhe der Auflage vernünftig abzuschätzen.
