The shiny silver Red Bull B-25J

I was quite lucky to go to the Botanical garden yesterday. The forecast for the rest of the week was rain, and they were right. It was raining the whole day today in Bratislava. Not really fit for nature photography. But to keep to the topic, here is a photo I took during a rainy day like today.

I visited Salzburg in Austria multiple times already. But I have yet to post a photo from there. The reason is, I have none. I have been there in the Summer and also in Winter. And each time, it rained. It rained heavily. So no photos were taken. But on my first visit few years back, since it was raining, we vent to the Red Bull museum there. It’s full of beautiful cars, helicopters and planes.

There were quite a few people inside, but since they allowed for tripods (not sure if it’s still like that), I decided to try to take some photos. And after few tries, I even managed one without any people in it. Ok, to be completely honest, there were some legs visible in the back, but those I could remove easily in Photoshop.

In this photo is the shiny silver Red Bull B-25J Mitchell World War 2 bomber that was displayed right in the middle of the museum. It makes for a bit of a busy photo, as the plane blends with the background, but I like it. It silver, so it reflects everything anyway. It’s a blend of three exposures, done in Photoshop.

If you want to visit the museum, it’s called Hangar 7 and here is it’s location on Google maps.

Evening panorama from Vienna

It’s always funny, that closer a place is, the harder it is to visit. Vienna is less than one hour drive away form Bratislava, and yet I have only few photos from there. Being so close, it makes it much easier to just say, I can go there anytime, and go somewhere else. Really have to fix that this year, and finally also put together a Top photography spots list for Vienna. Should have been done a long time ago.

Here is a panorama I took in Vienna already few years ago, but I never edited it. It’s a three shot panorama, each shot blended from two exposures. Combined, blended and finished in Photoshop.

AirMagic

Skylum software just announced a new piece of software to their lineup. AirMagic. This is a fully automatic AI powered software, that is designed to enhance photos taken with drones. I have yet to try it out, as I have not done much drone photos myself. Still, the promo video looks promising, even if probably one could get the result in a more traditional software, like Lightroom or Luminar. Still, for those who don’t like to spend much time editing, this could be something interesting.

They opened pre-orders today, and you can find out more on the official site here.

At the Hohe Wand skywalk

Must be a crazy feeling just jumping off a cliff and flying around. When I was at the Hohe want skywalk in Austria, there were quite a few para gliders flying around. And some of them even very close to the skywalk. I did try paragliding once, but not this kind. The kind where you have a big propeller behind you and a pilot in front of you. Was a great experience.

This photo is a blend of two exposures. Actually both para gliders in this shot are the same person. I captured a series of shots as he flown by, and then chosen two to put together. Edited in Photoshp.

Pink color at the horizon

The lighthouse at the Neusidlersee in Poddersdorf, Austria is a great place for sunset shots. The sun set’s right behind the lighthouse most of the year, and that can make for some stunning shots. But not always. Sometimes you get only a bit of color at the horizon, with nothing in the sky. Same happened the day I took this photo. But to get as much of the pink color into it, I decided to go with a panorama. Like that, the pink area was expanded, while having less of the empty blue sky.

This is a two shot panorama, each shot from three exposures, blended, combined and finished in Photoshop.

Bench with a view

There are places where you can sit down, enjoy the view and just relax. This is one of them. This bench is along the path you have to take to get to the 5 fingers platform high above Hallstatt in Austria. I have been to this spot already two times in the last few years. And I want to go back. Both times it was a bit hazy when I was there. I would love a nice clear day to get the best view but had no luck with it. A sunset would be also nice, but since the cable cars going up there don’t run in the evening, that will be a bit harder to accomplish.

This is a blend of three exposures, done in Photoshop.
