Hello my dear friends,

ย  As you probably already know, i spend my Christmas in upper Austria…and there was snow…a lot of snow! ๐Ÿ˜€ In the next days i will upload some of the photos i took there before we return to the usual Vienna posts. So this was actually my first contact with snow after many years of seeing none in Greece. You can imagine that i was ecstatic but also really not well prepared! Thankfully i had my uncle lent me some warm gloves, hiking shoes and gaiters (German: Gamaschen, i finally managed to learn that word!๐Ÿ˜‚) for not getting all wet, cause the snow at some parts of the mountain was knee high! I was ready for some serious action!

ย  It was still snowing relentlessly when we decided to go for a hike and while it was really beautiful it made taking photos very hard. I ended up taking most photos with my mobile phone (coming up on the next post) and only a few with my DSLR. My one and only Canon 60D is not really weather sealed so i couldn’t risk it. What do you use to protect your camera from getting all wet? Cause the umbrella sure didn’t work, with being windy and all that, my camera got covered in snow in a matter of seconds! I dared to take only a few shots, before putting it back in my backpack…but my uncle had enough time to snap a cool backstage photo ๐Ÿ˜Ž Say, snowcovered-icy-cheeeeeeese!!!โ†โ†โ†

ย  Well, i’ve been trying to find interesting views to photograph my village. Seeing the place you grew up and spend most of your life with different eyes can be very challenging but since i’m still trapped here, i have to make the best out of it. I really enjoy walking and hiking so i thought to try and cover the rural part of it, since the center doesn’t have anything worth seeing and remembering, it was just developed fast and ugly to accommodate tourists in the summer…
