fifty2:sixteen – Green II

A week full of sunshine! Every day, a sunny day. Perfect for outdoor activities and I did so, from Monday till Sunday. As summer is arriving, all the trees are getting green and that is wonderful.

Photography was not priority number one, but I did a couple of shots after I picked up my camera from sensor cleaning. Now I don’t need to clone/repair the dust spots. I still try to get some good focus stacking results, but surprisingly I need to train more and more.s

fifty2:six – Winter Moment

It was getting cold this week. On yet another walk in the park, the seabirds were standing on the frozen sea. The photo is not my favorite style of photography. I like to do landscapes with impressive color. But since it’s typical German winter, I have to take what comes. But I like this photo, it is a very good composition in my mind. I’m pleased this week.

fifty2:five – Eurasian coot

Another week has passed by. It’s already February.Time for a short review of the 52 project. First of all, I have posted a photo every week so far! Great. It feels good to take photos and exercise. On the other hand, the pressure to have to do it feels make me thinking. Organize catalogue, edit pictures, selecting one and publish it, no matter what but at least one image. That does not spark creativity. I have to spend much time and energy on my day job. Then, at the weekend I also have to do the project. But, I don’t want to complain. Let’s see how it works at the end of the year.

This image shows a Eurasian Coot. It was taken during a walk.

fifty2:three – CGN airport

Not all weeks are shiny, beautiful and eventful. This week was good, a lot of work to do. There was also a storm rolling over Germany this week. But anyway, the Mountain Bike season needs to be prepared. I see the view in the picture more often these days. It is the end of the runway of Cologne/Bonn airport, you can see the tower in the background. It is part of my training route. Quite interesting if you hear the turbines powering and smell the burned fuel. The day I took the photo was a two hour ride, 2mm rain, 2.8 degree Celsius. Not nice.

fifty2:two – Nutria on the run

Yeah, I’m a bit surprised┬áthat I have managed a second 52 photo project picture. The workload increased significantly this week, but I took a lot of pictures.

This week, I was on a walk with my wife and we visited a lake, where a nutria is living. This animal looks like a mix of the Biever and a rat, but very cute. Its origin was in South America, so it is not common here in Germany. The other animals in the lake somehow dislike it. In this case, it is chased by a swan. But it is just a beef between animals, nothing serious.

fifty2:one

As many people have, I have picked some New Years resolutions. As I’m interested in photography but didn’t have shot much in the past two years, I want to do more. I want to do some projects and one of them is a 52-week project. If you’re not familiar with it, it means that I shoot and publish a picture every week for a year. This is just to stick with photography, get some creative mojo and practice the craft. So don’t expect awesome fine-art photos every week.

This is my first photo. The whole week here was mostly overcast, rainy and some winter storms (without snow). One day in the evening on a walk, the sun came out to say goodbye for the day.
