Rigi from above

Rigi from above

Hi Guys again… Last weekend we went to the top of the Rigi with the family. For sure I took my Mavic Air along to take some nice images from above. It was really windy and cold, but I was astonished how the drone stayed still in the air. So we walked down to Rigi Staffel Höhe, which was more in the wind-shade to fly the drone. It’s really astonishing what this little drone is delivering… Finally I have flown over…

Arosa in the Winter

Arosa in the Winter

Hi Folks, Again we spent a few days in Arosa this year. It had a lot of snow and the weather was really good. Some nice clouds, but also lot’s of sun. As always I brought along my camera (Nikon D850), tripod and a bag full of lenses… including my new 200-500mm one! Although I had about 5-6 lenses with me, I’ve only used the the 200-500mm and 24-70mm. On Sunday we went to the Weisshorn for breakfast. I sneaked…

Nikkor 200-500mm F5.6

Review of the Nikon 200-500mm F5.6 I made myself a little Christmas present with a new lense! I ordered the Nikon 200-500mm  F5.6 and wraped it up with Christmas paper… then I handed it oder to my wife, and told her that this would be my present to out under the Christmas tree! So she had little to no idea what I would get 😉 Needless to say that I’ve taken my little present to Arosa. In my last post…

The last autumn leaves

The last autumn leaves

The last autumn leaves   Sunday morning, little snow in the garden and it was raining… so not the day you like to go out. Having my kids around, I did not have much time to take some images… During breakfast I see over to the forest, and I’ve seen a few bushes/trees which still have some leaves on them, and they were sort of shining in the forest. I thought this could be a nice shot, but it should…

Autumn leaves and trees with the D850

Autumn leaves and trees with the D850

The trees on fire.. Today when I came home from some customer visits at about 4pm, I grabbed my new D850, the lenses and my bicycle. I again overfilled my backpack with too many lenses! I took, the 14-24mm, the 24-70mm, the 70-200mm and the 105 macro… and all my filters, ohh boy was the backpack heavy…. Never the less I’ve used the 24-70mm, 70-200mm and the 105 macro for these shots today. As the new D850 has soooo many…

First shots with the Nikon D850

First shots with the Nikon D850

The Nikon D850…. The long wait has ended… I heard roomers more than a year ago that Nikon should bring a successor to the Nikon D810. As a D600 and D610 owner, and traveling with Dominik who pushed me to get a decent camera, I wanted to wait for the arrival of the Nikon D850. After the roomers had set this summer, I did a pre-order at prophot.ch  for the next generation D810. And soon the date of October 7th was…
