The old power plant "Kraftwerk" today serves as a eventlocation and also houses some bureaus. This chair was used for a quick chillout in the sun by the people working there!

What you see here is a Live-Composite shot of a LED floodlight. There were many insects flying around this light. So I decided to try to capture their motion. As I looked at the result I was blown away! Cou can clearly see each flap of their wings. I really love the chaotic lines of their paths!

My new friend. First he landed perfectly on the tip of my nose. After talking to him about me feeling kinda unconfortable like this, he decided to sit on my finger instead. He stayed there the whole way home. He then was kind enough to wait for me to grab my 60mm macro lens. Stay tuned for this upcoming closeup shot:)

Oh my gosh... he was fast. Faster as my own camera movement. Unfortunately all shots had some unacceptable motion blur in it. But I was curious to see what Lightroom could do with this 4 shots, taken in burst mode. After some fiddeling around with the panorama merge function, this is what I got. I'm really suprised and happy with the outcome - enjoy!

What a surprise this morning... Suddenly we heard loud goose screams. A look into the garden and out of the window... no goose there. I just couldn't find the source of the noise. A look out of the skylight up to the gable gave me the answer. These two sat comfortably there and talked loudly.

What a suprise today. I went for a little hike today in order to get some nice winter photos of the local birds. I found a nice place where I could get closer to a spot where some birds were digging up the ground to find something to eat. So I was kneeling down behind a hedge and took some photos when this beauty showed up out of thin air. I tried my best not to move (and to breathe). He did not see or recognize me for a long time. He calcmly ate some leaves and small twigs and slowly walked around the hedge I was hiding behind. Carefully I turned around to him and for a very short time I had this unobstructed view. Thank you handsome roebuck for this wonderful photo!

These wonderful, intelligent and beautiful creatures were one of the highlights on my Madeira trip. The group of wild dolphins we met on the open ocean were playing with us! As we parked our boat the curious animals came to us, jumped out of the water and watched us as we watched them. As we accelerated the boat to drive away they swam close to us and sometimes jumped out of the water as you can see on this photo! This was quite a bumpy ride and hard to get some good photos... but here is my favourite!

Would you believe me if I tell you that this photo was taken about 5 km away from the magical forest you can see in my earlier shots?Here you see the open highland of Madeira. The wind is blowing quite strong from the cold northern side of the iisland up to the highland. Thats why there are many wind turbines like this one up here. In 2013 they produced over 46.2 MW of energy for the population of this beautiful island!

The Magic Forest in Fanal is one of my favourite places of Madeira. Here you have fog and clouds most of the time. Sometimes the sun manages to break throuh here and there and creates these wonderful mood. The high humidity (of 100%) is great for the moss which grows everywhere!

Madeira is very famous for the so called "Levadas". These water canals were built to transport water from the rainy north and highlands of the island to the dry and sunny southern areas. There are more than 2000km of levada canals on the island. There are many Levadas with wonderful servicing paths aside which are great for beautiful walks!

This is the new train station in the east of Lisbon.In 1994, the station was proposed as part of the modernization of the Linha do Norte, a modification to the rail line to facilitate the future development of an Oriente station. The station was inaugurated on 19 May 1998, as part of the celebrations marking the opening of the Expo '98 world's fair. Oriente Station is one of the world's largest rail stations, with 75 million passengers per year, making it as busy as Grand Central Terminal in New York. At the time of its opening it was considered the largest intermodal station in Portugal winning the Brunel Award on 7 October 1998, in the category of large new construction projects. [Wiki]

Die barocke Colomanskirche liegt bei Schwangau in Bayern. Sie entstand in ihrer heutigen Form im 17. Jahrhundert auf einem Vorläuferbau, der zu Ehren des heiligen Koloman errichtet wurde. Der irische Pilger soll im Sommer 1012 bei seiner Pilgerreise ins Heilige Land an dieser Stelle gerastet haben. Die Kirche ist wegen ihrer Lage am Fuß der Schwangauer Berge und der Nähe zum weltbekannten Schloss Neuschwanstein eine der bekanntesten Sehenswürdigkeiten Bayerns.

It is a wonderful thing to get to see so many wonderful animals right in front of you without having to go out in the dangeous wilderness. But this comes with the price the animals have to pay - their lack of freedoom. Germany, Wilhelma Stuttgart

A very closeup photo of this beautiful creature. Unfortunately my only lens at this time was the 12-40mm 2.8... so I had to get very close to this bird!

Its fun to play with all the possibilities you have in Lightroom. But this time I may gone to far. I tried the filter collection called "Silver Efex Pro" by google and I'm not sure if I will need the additional features for my future work... What do you think? Somebody here using the Nik Collection?You can get it free from here: https://www.google.com/intl/de/nikcollection/
