Covid-19 is seriously impairing travel. While the job that pays the bills used to come with lots of business travel, I’ve been restricted to work from home since beginning of March. Also private travel is significantly reduced in Europe, and the streets of Nuremberg haven’t seen many visitors either. But our night sky has been graced by a very special visitor from outer space, comet Neowise.

“Good friends are like stars, you don’t always see them, but you know they’re always there”, an old saying goes.
A Milky Way shot to open the photography year 2020. Taken with the Olympus OM-D E-M1 and the mZuiko 7-14mm F/2.8. Image specs 20 sec (camera on a tripod) @ f/2.8 , ISO 3200 and 7mm focal length.
Postprocessing of the RAW in Lightroom Classic – mainly using haze reduction and increasing clarity in parts of the Milky Way, plus some overall sharpness masking and noise reduction.
Wish you a great Thursday!
Now that we are near to the finish line of the annual Christmas Rally I want to dedicate this photo from the Christkindlesmarkt in Nuremberg, together with my respect and my sincerest gratitude, to all the vendors of Christmas decorations, ornaments, crafts, food, drinks and many things more that sit for endless hours in their cold wooden stalls on all those Christmas Markets to give us passing visitors something to enjoy, to look at, to photograph and to help us opening us to the magic of the festive season! Thanks to all of you! For me you all are my employees of the month!
Have a blessed Christmas!
