Monochrome Madness 4-51

It’s still coupling season for the grey seals. So, this big male tries to convince the smaller female below him to give him a try ūüôā Despite this looks like a fight, it wasn’t.

Paris is calling! Le Centre Pompidou is a very modern building in the middle of Paris. Here you can find some more images, taken during my first trip to Paris in February 2012 (one of my carnival escape trips).

This is my contribution to Monochrome Madness organized by Leanne Cole.¬†Soon, we’re celebrating the fourth anniversary. This time we have a theme for the images again. It’s “from below”.

Here we are in Bavaria. Mid February I was in Allg√§u with a few friends for our annual carnival escape. This time, we didn’t choose a warm region. Instead, our destination was the Allg√§u, a region in the Bavarian Alps. I don’t want to tell much about that trip now. But, here I have one of the images taken there.

We’ve had surprisingly little snow. But, most of the time there were low standing, thick clouds.

Who said, in landscape photography, you don’t need big telephoto lenses? The above image taken from Helgoland shows the southern beach of the small neighbour island D√ľne with the lighthouse you already know, when you’re a frequent reader of this blog.

DX, 310mm (= 465 mm FX), f/5.6, ISO 800, 1/2000

The longer the lens, the heavier it is. The heavier a lens is, the more likely you’ll get unsharp blurry images because of unintentional tiniest camera movements (i.e. a breath or simply a heartbeat). ¬†That’s especially true, when standing on of of a cliff during heavy weather or a storm. A tripod might help a bit, but sometimes the wind is strong enough to move the whole tripod. So, only very short exposure times can help, getting a sharp image.

When I read this week’s theme, an old movie came up to my mind: Telephone from 1977 with Charles Bronson as the Russian officer Major Grigori Borzov, who is sent to USA to try and stop sleeper agents who will mindlessly attack government entities when they hear certain coded words spoken to them at the telephone by another Russian agent with the name Nicolai Dalchimsky. He picked the sleepers (a relict from the Cold War) from his list of all Russian sleepers based in the USA by using their Initial to ‘write’ his name (Dalchimsky) at the map of the USA (i.e. Denver, Atlanta, Louisville, Cincinnati, Houston – you got the idea). While¬†Nicolai Dalchimsky tries to rise the 3rd World War,¬†Grigori Borzov tries to find and eliminate him silently.

This telephone, instead, is not in the USA,it hangs in Barcelona, Spain.
