2803 – Welcome To The Machine III

What could possibly be wrong with more snow cannons? This time we’re looking right into them.

I’ve used the 12-40/2.8 PRO for these shots and while it’s clearly the better lens than the tiny and light Panasonic 12-32, it’s the opposite in any other regard. The lens is big and heavy, and I guess for my upcoming trip to northern Italy I’ll happily take the 12-32. That’s for that 🙂

The Song of the Day is “Welcome To The Machine” from the Pink Floyd masterpiece “Wish You Were Here”. Hear it on YouTube.

2802 – Need A Cannon?

Carinthia is one of Austria’s prime tourist destinations, and although there are higher mountains in Tyrol, at least as many lakes in Salzburg and much more culture almost everywhere, the mix is working outstandingly well.

For winter sports you need snow, and in times of global warming (doubt it if you want), the way we make sure there is snow, is the good old snow cannon. We’ve got many of them and if you’ve ever asked yourself where they are kept while they are not needed, don’t ask no more. Seltschach is the place and I was there 🙂

The Song of the Day is “Cannon” from the self-titled 1999 White Stripes debut album. Hear it on YouTube.
