   The Raiffeisen Tower, built in 2010-2012, conquers position number 25 in the list of the highest buildings in Vienna. Measuring 78meters height and featuring 22 floors that house only offices, it might not win you over with its size but for me it’s a winner when it comes to design! A creation of architects: Dieter Hayde, Ernst Maurer, Radovan Tajder, the Raiffeisen Tower is a beauty standing right next to the Donau canal, reflecting its mood and mirroring every precious moment of the day.

Hello my dear friends,

  As much as i enjoy sunny weather, when it comes to my photography i prefer this kind of weather! Gloomy, about to rain and really dramatic! ☁ ☁ ☁ I cannot help but feel that it gives another dimension to otherwise not so interesting themes. What do you think? Am i the only one who gets inspired by this kind of weather? Let me know if i’m crazy or not! Hahaha! XD

Crazy Rain Cloud

  That just happened! The crazy weather and the storms are not stopping any time soon. That cloud was moving insanely fast, it was a matter of seconds before the whole sky turned dark and crazy amounts of rain started pouring down. The storm lasted about an hour, leaving us without electricity. I spend that time with my guitar, playing spooky music, trying to create the soundtrack of a horror movie. Storms inspire me, i can see that. One thing i am grateful for is that it only rained and we didn’t have any hail, my mom’s awesome garden would be destroyed 😦

Hello my friends 😀

  The weather here has been very stormy lately but that was a great opportunity for me to take some new photos. I always found thunderstorms very fascinating and it would be an understatement to say that i’m not in love with them. My grandmother is terrified by them and here i am running outside with my tripod as soon as i hear a thunder 🙂

  So last night it was a distant thunderstorm, i didn’t hear any thunders, i didn’t see any lightnings. I had reports from several of my friends who live in Thessaloniki that there was a storm there and i thought to check it out. From my balcony i could see some action in the distance. I began taking some wide angle photos but the lightnings were not strong enough to make the scene interesting so i decided to pull out a zoom lens and try to get closer to the center of the storm.

  After a while i  realized the storm wasn’t moving very fast so i could predict where to focus and how to compose my shots. The heavy clouds most of the times covered the shapes of the lightnings passing through them but that created a very interesting light play.

  Most of my exposures are about 7-9 seconds long. In the first images that i did a longer exposure you can see the movement in the clouds which was not an effect i liked. As for post-processing i did add some saturation and contrast to make them more colorful and dramatic but the difference in color tones was there and that’s how this storm felt to me. I hope you enjoy 😉

Hello my friends! 🙂

  I’m sorry for my absence but i had some really annoying problems with my computer. My main hard disk failed and i had to buy a new one, install windows and all my programs from scratch only to have my computer freeze all the time because as i found out later my network adapter card was not compatible with a new update that windows had recently released. To make long story short, i spent too much time and energy to make my computer work again that i just needed a break from it all. Right now i’m re-organizing myself and my time so i can come back with lots of new projects 🙂 I hope you’re all doing well. Tomorrow i’ll be checking on all the posts i missed all these days 😉
