Red Chard in the Snow

Winter is over and here they are: the snow pictures. Sadly we did not have a lot of snow this year. I think I had only like two or three occasions to run out and take some pictures.

I focused on the red and yellow chard which was still growing in a bed in a corner of our garden. Some of the pictures are slightly over exposed but I like the powerful colors (so it’s more about the colors than about the motif itself).

Portraits of the Carnival

Since 19 years the “Carnival der Kulturen” (carnival of cultures) takes place in Bielefeld. It is always a colorful procession with a lot of creative and beautiful costumes and a good occasion for shooting nice pictures.
This year I took my 70-300 mm lens with me and made a lot of portrait shots.

You can find more information about the Carnival der Kulturen on their homepage and more photos on my post from last year’s carnival.
