At the “Kugelbake” I had the luck today for the first time to take pictures of the Snow Bunting wintering here. Since the storfront Victoria was still present, a large number of Ruddy Turnstones were also close to the path in search of food.
Due to offshore winds, the stormfront Sabine was not very spectacular on Sunday. Meanwhile, the newspaper reported that the high water was lower than usual. So the trip to Obereversand was not really worthwhile.
Not spectacular, but finally some sun. Although it was really very cold and the wind did the rest. Very windy for the small drone, but still quite stable shot, although the copter itself swayed and wobbled precariously in the air.
Sooner or later, the weather really gets on your nerves… Anyway, just took a quick look if I get something in front of the lens; and, lo and behold, a Eurasian Treecreeper. Actually I was looking for the kingfisher in the area, but he did not show up today.
Test of the automatic release with the DJI. In this case, the Mavic Mini takes a picture every 2 seconds. If you let it slowly rotate around its own axis, you can easily create a 360° panorama from the individual images. The image quality is also not too bad for the small sensor. However, the […]
Yesterday we started a second round of testing in much better conditions. A few shots in Cappel-Neufeld, Berensch and Lüdingworth are not even that bad. Of course the flying has to get a bit better, but the little Mavic is doing really well. No comparison to the Phantom I had 6 years ago. For the […]
First test flight with the Mavic Mini in modest weather (and it was cold to boot). The flight characteristics of the small drone are enormous. Despite icy winds the little Mavic stands very calm in the air. The telephone battery did not like the temperatures at all. After 20 minutes the battery had gone from […]
Today I made an infrared picture with the Nikon D80, Nikkor 16-85 and the Hoya R72 filter. It is rather something for spring and summer, but with subsequent retro-style conversion to Lightroom, it can also be used in winter.
Difficult to photograph. You stand very close to it and even with a 24mm TS-lens it is not enough to put the camera in balance on the tripod. An attempt with 18mm fails almost as well. The tripod head has to be moved out of balance or it is not possible without cutting off the […]
Early this morning in Balje. Light frost and hardly any wind. Although the sunrise cannot directly be seen from the position I stood, even in winter; a great sky above the lighthouse showed up. The colors in the image above have been slightly reduced in the post-production, they were a little more blatant in nature. […]
