Vacation in the mountains due to heat wave

Finally it’s here – the summer we’ve been yearning for a long time. The days are endless, the motivation and energies refreshed and the desire for ice-cold drinks at the water is huge. But after a few days of full urban heat which, as every year, spreads between the houses, I nicely accepted some vacation ...

The SIGMA 17-50mm f/2.8 in a warm spring rain

On the fotogenerell blog, the SIGMA 17-50mm f/2.8 EX DC OS HSM lens has often received a lot of positive feedback and in my opinion it is one of SIGMA’s evergreens. And this isn’t the case for no good reason – the all-round lens from SIGMA’s promising Contemporary series guarantees what the manufacturer promises. Compared ...

Nature Photo Blog

32 nature photographers for 365 days a year. That’s the concept of the Nature Photo Blog and I’m most likely one of its biggest fans. It’s almost become a ritual by now: Every morning when I start my laptop or switch on my smartphone, the first thing I do is to take a look at ...
