Two days ago a tree (silver fir) ended it’s natural life cycle.
Since it was tilted towards the houses the decision was taken to tear it down.

I recommend you to watch these pictures in full resolution – just click on them and then zoom in :).

Adrenaline junkie:
IMG_7740 IMG_7773 You know you’re a real man when you’re photogenic even while working with a chainsaw at insane altitudes, supported by two thin ropes only. An you’ve even got time to pose:IMG_7780IMG_7787 And the last cut: IMG_7833

And now guess, who has to clean it all up? 🙂

Old Castle Ruins

So… Seems like I have taken “Picture a Day” challenge very “seriously”.

Well… Next year I will take part in all of them (In my hopes and dreams).

Few days back me and my girlfriend took a walk in Old Castle ruins located near the town where I grew up.
In the ruins we found a very well lit suspension bridge and fortunately I had my camera with a tripod handy (the best gift for christmas this year).
There should be EXIF with the file, but in case you are wondering:
HDR bracket: (-2;2)
ISO: 100
Exposure: 2 ; 1/2 / 8
Aparture: 8
Lens used: Canon EFS 17-85; 1:4-5.6 IS USM (Manual focus, Stabililizer off). Focal lenght: 17mm
Camera Used: My PrEcIoUs Canon EOS 400D with firmware upgrade.

Software used: Adobe Photoshop + NIK filters (Boosted Red layer, removed some noise, merged HDR).

And here is the result:

A suspension bridge in Old Castle Ruins located in the town near which I grew up.

In case I won’t get here before it’s time: Have a nice New Year’s Eve!
