Rodenstock


Rodenstock is the name of the lens btw, not the flower. It was made with a home made mount of an old and extremely fast Rodenstock lens with a fixed focus (i.e. you focus by moving forward or backward) and is only suitable for macro work.

Thunderstorm over Basel

You know how I'm always freaking out when I come around a thunderstorm and find either my camera or the right lighting conditions missing. I adore thunderstorms. Everything about them is so terrifyingly beautiful (except maybe the lightning striking killing a person part), and in many ways, it is a photographic challenge that is all about preparation, reaction time and dynamic camera setting changes. With some equipment an a couple of cheap tricks, it may well work out though, that is if you're lucky of course. Yesterday, it all came down together in the single most amazing thunderstorm I've seen in a long time. It went on for hours, an the lightning frequency was very high. I almost rushed in my pajamas through the overly pouring rain and ice with my camera to the biocenter which usually offers a more stunning panorama, however I decided for my camera's sake that this would probably not be such a wise idea. Anyways, I got a couple of nice shots, and promise for the next storm a waterproof camera bag to the Biozentrum.

Trekking: Olten - Waldenburg

Last Sunday, Anke, Ania, Adi, Daniele and I went trekking in near-by Olten. It was our first trek for the year, which was probably not such a great choice, even more so that I had told Daniele and Ania they could do it without trekking shoes. After an initial problem of finding the starting point out of Olten, we found our trail and made some encounters with castles, old suicidal people, 30cm of snow and hurting feet. I say it was worth it! Here's the pix. And here's the Google earth kmz file.

Trip to Gruyère


Yesterday we went to see Gruyère which is not only notoriously difficult to spell but also home to the Gruyère cheese, the Gruyère castle and the Gruyère Giger museum. We got some 30% off since the SBB has a promotion in February, and after a 3h odysee we finally set foot on holy cheese land. Sliding upwards toward the castle, we entered a pitoresque small town with 50 touristic restaurants, and started off by visiting the castle which was moderately interesting (the way most castles are...) and enjoyed the spectacular view of the snowy mountain peaks. The tour finished by an not so interesting film about the history of the castle, after which we went to have a cheese fondue à volonté. After being extremely full of cheese, we went to the Giger museum just next to the castle, Giger being most famous for his designs of the Alien movie aliens. The museum was fantastic, he is truly a graphic genius and I highly recommend it to all fans of Sci-Fi, design and male repproductive organs (some of his paintings are quite explicit). Afterwards we had a drink in the Giger café which looked like an Alien hatchery and finished off by seeing the Schaukäserei, where they prepare Gruyère cheese. This was a spectacularly miserable visit and probably the most boring place on the northern hemisphere.
Here are the pics!

Passwang - Snow Trekking in the Basel Land


Yesterday we went to the Passwang to do some snow shoe trekking (without snow shoes in the end, as the snow wasn't that deep). Nadine, Julie, Ania, Aaron, Adi and me trekked some 12 km in the most beautiful snowy landscapes, took tons of pics and enjoyed the marvelous weather. A track with geotagged pix will follow, for now enjoy the pics here and the panoramas here and here (they're big!!!).

EDIT: I have now included the GPS track from my Garmin... It's a kmz file that opens with Google Earth. Enjoy!

Sylvester 08/09


It was a good new year's eve we had this year here in Basel. I had concluded that it was time to stay here in Basel for once and so Line and I invite a couple of people over. We prepared a Fondue Bourguignonne Betz style (i.e. beef, lamb, duck, pig and chicken meat, the most powerful garlic mayonnaise you can prepare on this hemisphere and oven roasted potatoes with our famous sour cream / cream cheese sauce), followed by an after mid-night Luxembourgish onion soup with cheese and finally an pineapple ice-cream. Recipies will follow... Here's the pix.

Julie & Aaron's Homewarming Party


Judging from the time I got back this morning, the amount of pictures taken, and all the fun we had their party was a big success. I only nearly cut myself to death by trying to open a bottle of an unknown beverage but otherwise it was a blast. So here's the pix, and please do contact me in case you want your picture to be removed, anyways I thought this was a better idea than placing them on Facebook.
NB for Simon: You have to click on the link to go to the pictures.

Vampires attack!


Nah, just kidding. This is a perfectly harmless (but very tasty!!!) fruit bat, one of the many that soar the Seychellian airs (although they mostly pass their time hanging upside down in fruit trees and making a terrible noise)... to the bat mobile!

Coco Dmer



Probably one of the most famous endemic species from the Seychelles is the Coco de Mer or Coco Fesse (you can guess why they call it like that). The nuts are absolutely stunning and can easily reach a weigth of 20 kg and more. Also, this palm reproduces with two seperate genders (i.e. male and female plants) and is apparently very difficult to grow even on the Seychelles.
