Goods weeks at Weissensee with a load of publications in all the regional and national newspapers!
Once every few year, not only the smaller part of the Weissensee (AT) lake, but also the bigger part freezes over. This results in one giant black piece of ice, every iceskaters dream!
Portrait of the female icespeedskater with the most victories off all time on the natural ice of Weissensee (AT).
It is always the battle between the different natural ice rinks who can organise the first marathon on natural ice. This year it was Haaksbergen that won this race by being the first track to offer 3cm of pitch black ice combined with a good weather forecast for the evening. The woman started in the snow but finished under good conditions.
The man started and finished in good conditions and delivered the big crowd a great race. It was Gary Hekman that won the sprint of the leading group!
New racing suits for the KOGA marathon icespeedskating team. This means also new pictures! Busy on the icerink so had a hard time getting some clean shots. Thankfully succeeded eventually!

Experimenting some more with remotes during the ice speedskating season. Reach off the Pocketwizrads PlusIII's is incredible long with no misfires when mounted on a metal bridge over the ice, under a metal roof, over 100 meters away. Impressive!
The new Ice speedskating just started under a summerly 24 degrees Celcius. A new season of ice skating pictures with again a few nice teams to shoot for.
Some nice ideas for the coming races but I started with just some ordinary remote cameras on interesting places. Therefor I was abled to shoot two angles at the exact same time resulting in some nice pictures.
I was lucky the national television broadcasted the first race so a big metal scaffold was placed just after the finish. No better place to put a remote camera! Finish for second place from two different angles shows the power of remote cameras.
