This weekend I finally got around to uploading some pictures from our trip last fall to the Grand Canyon, Las Vegas (no pics), Death Valley, and Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks. The cave pictures at sequoia national park are from crystal cave.
Since we are going on a small vacation tomorrow I wanted to get a couple picture galleries up before I start filling my drive up with new pictures. These are all from small trips/excursions we took over the summer. Unfortunately no pictures from the canoe on the st. croix river.
A few weeks ago I stumbled across this recipe for making a cookie in a skillet http://www.sophistimom.com/one-pan-skillet-cookie and shared it with a few people because I though it looked cool. My wonderful wife then put “skillet” on our shopping list because she knows I can’t resist cookies, and yesterday we tried out the recipe. It was easy and […]
A few weeks ago we traveled a bit west and visited the Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks, I’ve finally gotten around to sorting through the pictures and uploading a few (well, actually a lot). I didn’t get around to editing and stitching the panorama photos together yet, or doing anything interesting with the GPS […]
Monday we headed over to St. Anthony Falls here in Minneapolis (Mississippi river). There is a Heritage Trail around the falls that gives you a nice view of the falls and surroundings.
We visited the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum last week, here are some impressions we captured with the camera ….
Some more pictures from around here. Let’s start off with the local zoo …. Now some pictures from our state capitol And last but not lease somce pictures from the Saint Paul Cathedral
Yesterday Steffi and I went geocaching, I took some photos while we were underway ….
I never got around to posting it, but a few weeks back the hard drive of my PC with Windows on it died … a little bit. Technically a large chunk of the harddrive is simply unaccessable. after poking and pushing I at least got windows to boot up again, but a large part of […]
We shot over 600 photos on our cruise. Anyone who missed it on Facebook: we visited Savona (Italy), Barcelona, Palma de Mallorca (both Spain), Tunis (Tunisia), La Valletta (Malta), Cantania and Rom (both Italy). Anyway, here is a selection of some of the photos. Took me the better of the day to sort out which […]
I always shoot in RAW + JPEG. For normal point-and-shoot vacation stuff I’m generally satisfied with the JPEG the camera spits out. But I would never shoot only JPEG. The additional information of RAW shouldn’t be underestimated, and to be honest I often tweak around. It makes a difference if you are working on the […]
I haven’t posted anything here in a while. Mostly I’ve been busy preparing a photo-shoot and -documentation of a wedding of friends. As a photographer you will always notice things, when looking at the finished fotos, where you say “hmm, maybe a differnet aperature/iso/flash/exposure setting would have produced an even better result”. but all in […]
Spent a day this week driving around and taking random photos ….
A few weeks ago we were in the Schwarzwald for a few days, and since we got a fair amount of snow while we were there I took some pics. I’ve uploaded my 30 favorite here ….
We went for a walk through the snow and some sledding today, here are the pics i shot ….
I made some of my cookies this evening and used the opportunity to take some pictures. The lighting wasn’t perfect, so everything has a slight yellow tint. I decided to leave the pictures that way instead of trying to correct the problem in Photoshop.
