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!
When winter temperaturs and summer sun are combined, what results is shadows dancing over the natural ice.
Portrait of the female icespeedskater with the most victories off all time on the natural ice of Weissensee (AT).
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!

Got my hands on a second hand Fanotec pole. This carbon fibre pole with a maximum extended length of 6 meter offers the ability to get aerial pictures where drones are not allowed. Tested the pole for the first time this weekend but did not extend it to the full length due to the strong winds. Still managed to get a few decent shots from the icerink.
Will use it the comming few weeks during indoor events.
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.
