höhenrausch 4

rf_20140928_DSCF7959-1.RAF_LR_devthe “linzer höhenrausch” (thrill of heights) – which took place in it’s 4th edition in 2014 – really is one of my annual long awaited and favorite events in linz.
beside the cultural context and great ideas the artists came up with, it always has to offer some magnificent angles, structures and patterns – stuff i really enjoy to play with.

rf_20140928_DSCF7952-1.RAF_LR_devwaiting for sunny autumn weather last year postponed my vistiting date and i feared, that the event will close the doors before i had the opportunity too shoot, but finally the weather god had mercy with me at the end of september, allowing me and my family to take some fabulous pictures.

if you are interested in the various artistic installation, which can be seen in my pictures, then you might take a stop at the official homepage for some more information (in english).

please move on to my gallery to watch all images i’ve taken – enjoy!




There are plenty of wonderful cornfields just around the corner of my workplace.
Despite to the amount of corn it seems, that there’s just one single harvester available for all local farmers, which leads to half harvested fields or sometimes last the whole autumn untouched and therefore can be looked at for a long period of time – under different weather conditions a simple “must shoot” for photographers :)


Especially in the evening, when the light is low and the sunset generates a warm, golden and magic ambient worth taking some pictures.


In conjunction with the some nice filter effects from the nik collection one easily gets some very pleasing pictures. Quite understandable why it sometimes is so hard forme to pick the best shot out of very different moods…
a very simple explanation why i simply show them all :) or at least a few! i invite you to watch them all here in my gallery.




rf_20140421_DSCF2119-1.RAF_LR_devthe “urfix”, which is the loving and colloquial abbreviation for “urfahraner jahrmarkt” – an amusement fair held twice a year in the northern part of linz (urfahr) since decades near the river danube – offers pretty much too shoot: forinstance as an street-art event with plenty of crowdy young people, long exposures in the night, freezing movements in stills or – as I did this year – as a still place with polished machinery before the big opening, offering deep and intense colors not often seen in such a static scenery. polished up a litte bit with the help of nik filters :)
