The beautiful Hundertwasser Haus surrounded by snow! 😀 I finally had the rare opportunity to take a photo of it without people walking all around but unfortunately the cars parked next to it, seem to always be there! It has become one of my goals to take a photo of this building without any cars and people around! One day…
Nope, it’s not snowing again. After the “snowstorm”, we had so many amazing and sunny days, with clear blue skies and i must admit i spent most of my time taking really long walks, 15km every day at least and kinda lacked any motivation to sit down and edit grey and snowy photos. Today it’s been raining so i thought it was about time, old snowy photos are coming up!!! ❄❄❄
Yesterday we had a little snowstorm in Vienna! 😀 I might have been the only person who was really excited and was running outside with a huge smile, ignoring the strong wind and the dense snowfall! What a day it was! 😀 Today it is all gone but since yours truly spend more than 3 hours taking photos yesterday, there are many shots to be posted in the following days! 😉
P.s. The Rainsleeve thingy i bought from eBay to protect my camera from rain/snow, worked quite well. I had to tape the lens opening side on the lens hood itself cause the drawstring didn’t secure tightly enough and would move exposing the lens when i focused…but for 7$ / 2 pieces, you can’t complain 🙂
As you probably already know, i spend my Christmas in upper Austria…and there was snow…a lot of snow! 😀 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!😂) for not getting all wet, cause the snow at some parts of the mountain was knee high! I was ready for some serious action!
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 😎 Say, snowcovered-icy-cheeeeeeese!!!❆❆❆
