El norte de España

Wednesday, June 13th, 2018

In spring 2016 I travelled to Northern Spain, visiting the Basque Country, Cantabria, Aragon and Castile and Leon. Flying to Bilbao and heading to our first location in San Sebastian, we made a stopover in Zumaia. The little town is nice … but more famous is its rock formation – The Flysch. The landscape is stunning and so we stayed some hours before going to San Sebastian.

The workhorse was – again – the Olympus OM-D E-M1 with its M.Zuiko 12-40mm PRO lens, completed by an iPhone 5s. So this was again a pure digital journey. This time I’ll try staying at B&W only, knowing that the colours here were wonderful too.

Over the next weeks I’ll post more of this trip – here on my blog, but also on my flickr page.

Homeland – Amaryllis

Sunday, February 18th, 2018

That day the weather was cold but sunny – at least  in the morning. Sun was coming in through the large windows and gave some beautiful lighting.
This Amaryllis is going on now since Christmas and it’s still not at it’s end.

As I’m currently experimenting with a Sony A7R2 and old glass, I had mounted a Contax Carl Zeiss Planar 1.4/50mm.
This lens gives some very very beautiful results. As often, I have tried a black&white version too.

I applied some presets in Nik’s Color Efex and Silver Efex applications and I’m getting more and more pleased with the results.

Enjoy 😉
