Sudan 2017 gallery is online

I have selected a couple of pictures of my recent trip to the Sudan. They may be seen here in my gallery.

MY Aurora

I am still searching for the wreck of the Aurora, lying at Wingate Reef. As far as I know, she sank on November 23rd 2004 during a storm. She is reported to lie at about 20 meters depth in the vicinity of the Umbria. The image shows the Aurora on her last trip in October 2002.

I am glad about any hint leading me to the exact position of the wreck. If you know about the wreck, please tell me through my contact form.

Back from Sudan

I was diving the area south of Port Sudan towards the Eritrean border. I used the trip to test dive computers and to do some research on the position of a wreck I’m looking for. Pictures of the trip will be shown in the gallery soon.

Back from South America!

I have been on an expedition in South America. We wanted to dive a crater lake at 5900m altitude to test outdoor and diving equipment. Sadly, the weather was too bad to achieve our goal. Nevertheless, I had a great time in Bolivia and Chile. During the next few days, I will process pictures from the trip and upload them to a gallery on this site.

Bodies of Sound

Finally, I made it happen. After several years of planning, sketching and research, I was able to take the photos for a new project. With the great help of Reinhard Wagner, I took a picture series at his studio in Rocksdorf on December 16th and 17th.

Now it is time to select the best shots and prepare them for printing. Thanks to the highly professional team that helped me to create great pictures. After selecting, processing, printing and framing the pictures, a series of exhibitions in Austria and Germany is planned. More about this in a couple of weeks on my blog.

Back from Indonesia!

I’ve been travelling Indonesia for six weeks. I spent the time with diving, testing dive computers and visiting friends.I also took loads of pictures that will be sorted and processed to be shown in my gallery.

I wasn’t online very often. The islands of eastern Indonesia are still very remote, regarding network connections. Depending on weather or simply the availabliity of a stable electrical power supply, the netwoks are unreliable and sometimes won’t operate for several days. Please apologize for delayed answers to requests. I’m back now and response times will be again as short as usual.

Angle-finder adapter for the OM-D E-M1 II

Olympus presented the new µFT camera flagship as a prototype. Technical details are very promising. First reviewers pointed out, that the missing accessory port doesn’t allow to use teh electronic swivel viewfinders.

There is a solution to this problem. The receptacle for teh eyepiece is very similar to the one of the predecessor. That means, that my angle finder adapter I built for the E-M1 will also fit the E-M1 II. Therefore, the optical viewfinder VA-1 can ve used with the coming camera!
