Sunrise in Reindlmühl, Austria

Hello my dear friends,

  It’s already been a month since i moved to Austria and i feel like a new person…There is no looking back or thoughts of doubt, it had to be done and i couldn’t be happier that i’m able to share it with you all.

  This weekend i visited my relatives in upper Austria, Gmunden and Altmünster. I had an amazing time and it was really lovely to see them all again after almost 8 years. It’s been too long since my last visit in Austria, when previously we used to visit almost every year. It still feels surreal that i actually live in Austria now but the breathtaking nature and the smiles i receive everyday make it real.

  Enjoy a panoramic view from the mountains in Reindlmühl area, it was really refreshing to wake up to this view for 2 days! I’m really lucky to have an aunt and uncle that live on the mountainside 😀 More photos to come!

Foggy day in my village

Yesterday was quite a peculiar day. The fog started early in the morning and lasted throughout the day, as a result of that, the smoke from the chimneys got trapped under the fog creating a rather unpleasant atmosphere. Of course i could not stay inside and not take any photos so i went for a quick walk around my house, when i got back i was couching and had a runny nose, today i’m fine though 🙂 Here are a few photos, with minimum edit, only contrast and white balance was enhanced from the raw files.

On the way to Drama, Greece, I encounter this foggy landscape with the river and the bridge…I just had to take a photo, 2 minutes later the fog was gone 🙂

The famous “White Tower” landmark of Thessaloniki, on a foggy day…


  I’m usually very strict with keeping a straight horizon and correct perspective in my photographs. After some comments about this matter on a photo “The Looming Decay (2013)” by infraredrobert , i remembered this specific one where i break all these rules but i think the result came out really interesting.

  It was a rather unusual and foggy day and that made it a perfect day for a walk. I don’t know what those black things that were sprayed on the ground were supposed to be, the next day they were gone. They do resemble caveman drawings, i think they look like people running and jumping, hunting down an animal? Anyway, i was fascinated by the fact that these drawings would add a unique touch to the most photographed subject of the city.

  I took this photo with my Canon 450 and the kit lens 18-55mm. I choose a low angle almost down to the ground, so i could include the drawings. When i noticed how distorted the tower became i played with the angle to make it even more dramatic. Nothing was done in photoshop to correct or exaggerate the result. The tree that has a natural incline to the right helps a lot to make the image look even more distorted.  What do you think?
