Some shots taken during a walk through the forest in Sahlenburg. I had the D800 with the Zeiss 50f1.4 and the D2x with the Sigma 30f1.4 with me. Both are excellent lenses that provide sharp and gracious looking pictures.
Spent a good hour to take some shots of the sunrise in the wadden sea close to Cuxhaven monument “Kugelbake”. Using the Sigma 35mm attached to the D2x and the Sigma 50mm at the D800 which gives comparable angles of view. Nice but not excellent performance of the Sigma with the D800. The 35mm is […]

Some photos from the excellent workshop in Mecklenburg Vorpommern that was run by Rangertours. 2 action tours where the white-tailed sea eagles are baited from a boat with the ability to shoot close distance photos in action and 2 days in hides to shoot raptors and other scavengers at a baiting place. In addition some informal practice sessions with […]

Result were 42 portrait-mode pictures out of which 34 were used to create the panorama. I uploaded the picture in nearly full size to allow viewing […]
Always had the problem to keep my laptop and desktop in sync for the Lightroom and Photoshop settings, presets, etc. The solution to this is to make use of a “cloud-sync” which keeps the files used still local and does sync automatically between the machines. I am using the Synology CloudStation for this, but it […]

The whole traveling distance I tracked with my Garmin was 5490km. Using the 2 cameras I had with me I did 4549 pictures. Main lens on the D800 was the Sigma 24-105f4 Art. With the D4 I used nearly all lenses except the Sigma Zoom. Most pictures of the Birds were shot with the D4. The EV […]
