Our DAV (German Alpine Association) photo workshop has been a great success. Perfect weather conditions and very nice and dedicated participants.
UPDATE: Found someone very talented!
For my actual project about Japan I would need some (paid!) support of a manga artist. During the trip I have been swimming in an more than icy lake near Fuji mountain. Unfortunately also the showers after have been cold – for which I got a slap in my face from the girl I have been swimming with. Ouch 🙂
As there are no pictures from this story I’d like to tell it in a Manga like style, about five or six Manga drawings. I could provide photos from the lake, the campsite, me and the girl and so on.
Anyone interested in doing the drawing? I of course going to pay for it!
Edition 02/15 of German “trekking Magazin” is out. Contains two articles of mine about volcano trekking (Link to German article) and about a short hiking tour in Switzerland (Link to German article). And, big honor, I was asked to write the foreword!
Finally I’ve found a (very simple) solution to remote control my MacBook Pro 15” Retina and thus also Fotomagico, my program for developing my Multimedia-Shows. There is a small dongle called ‘Flirc’ (Amazon link). Just insert it into a USB port and it will connect with the original Apple IR remote control. With only 6 clicks you may allocate the buttons from the rc and everything works fine. Took me not more than 2 minutes!

My friend Chris Weber today published one pic of the rare smoke rings coming out of Etna volcano. It was taken during his foto expedition on 3.350 meter high winterly Mt. Etna in Sicily with stronger eruptive activity during last week.
Explanation: When there is potential higher activity and some pulsing powerfull degassing or even material eruption out of an Etna crater, those rare gas rings can occure. Needed for this phenomena is a somehow deep crater pit with circular vertical walls like a chimney. Pressure release roll up the gas to a ring which than released into the air, keeps rolling in itself and stays like this for many minutes stabel in cold winter air without turbulences. Ring seen on the image was already 5 minutes released and between 30 and 100 meters wide.
