i always wanted to compose and process a copper engraving like image of our wonderful lake, the bodensee. today the time had come. there was really strong wind, gusting over 30km/h. so on the one hand all the soft components of an image were supposed to be definitely blurred when captured with a longer exposure time, on the other hand the alps were clearly visible on the horizon because of the consistent west wind. and finally due to the built-in stabiliser of the sel 35 i was able to work without a tripod in the course of a short stop at the lakeside.

in the language of the currently extremely bashed instagram today's image could be definitely tagged with the string #nofilterneeded. today in the morning when i walked from the parking to the company area, on the horizon the alps were shaded in a strong, intense orange and the dark clouds above beautifully illuminated in purple and magenta.

anytime i'm going to watch this spectacle from a summit in the middle of the mountains.

principally you can escape from wet and cold only temporarily. anytime everybody has to clench his teeth and stand his ground.

both wet and cold are tolerable if they don't appear together at the same moment. currently temperatures are rising a bit so that the pleasant cold with crystal-like snow is turning into a nasty mishmash of medium low temperatures and additionally wet snowfall. hopefully this is only a temporary condition, too.

in times of passages from one season to the other the forces of both usually fight very hard against each other. thereby the opponents conduct war by every trick in the book - providing cover is only one of the applied methods.

there are images that suggest thinking about different kinds of stories. with today's pic i could tell stories about seeing light at the end of the tunnel and so on. but i actually don't want to talk about such negative things although the dark clouds that are currently gathering here at work state something different.

i for one know that no matter what happens, if everything should collapse anytime there will be a fall back position at home at my girl's shoulder. so let's look ahead instead and marvel at the craftsman who was working in a sun-like, warm light all the afternoon. he was the only one who got out of the grey today and deservedly so because he is one of the men who get our corridors in pretty and neat order again.
