Carinthia is a rural part of Austria with a nice mix of lakes, soft valleys and high mountains. This image has been taken in one of the more mountainous regions. The bit of snow on the roof of this small wooden chapel, along with the snow-capped mountain in the background even gives an impression of winter.
One of the marvels of digital photography is the option to correct perspective. I don’t do it always, but in this case it was inevitable.
I stood in front of that building, a do-it-yourself store, and I took an image of the reflection in the upper story window. The angle was quite steep, the distortion extreme, but I believe it took not more than a button click on Lightroom’s automatic correction to give me this image, devoid of my own reflection.
Sankt Peter am Wallersberg is the name of this small village on a hill in Carinthia.
I already ordered the Mitakon Speedmaster 25/0.95 in September, but it took until end of November to finally arrive. When it did, I got it two days after my second copy of the 60/2.8. It’s small wonder that the spectacular f0.95 lens got all my attention.
Nevertheless, I keep using the unspectacular macro lens from time to time, and the longer I do so, the more I love it. I sold it once, but I’ll never do that again 🙂
Valbruna is a village at the mouth of a side-valley just south of Tarvisio. At the end is this, a steep cliff facing north, a place that looks like the home of winter 🙂
