I always wanted to shoot this beacon, but since it is very remote from the place where i live, i had to wait for a weekend to travel there. It is situated in Burgenland, Austria at Lake Neusiedl (Podersdorf) and it is the only beacon we have in Austria. The birds use Lake Neusiedl as a waypoint on their way from the north to their winter quarters in Africa.

Canon 50d and Sigma 10-20mm at 13mm, f/ 16 iso 100, Fader MkII, three bracketed images merged in Photomatix.

I am a Hobby Photographer from Austria who likes to shoot a mixed bag of subjects ranging from car racing to airshows, architecture, landscape and nature and have not specialized on a specific topic.
I also like to look at all the beautiful artwork here to find some inspiration.
Thank’s to all of you for looking and commenting on my work.

    Worth waiting for, I’d say. Great shot, I like the transition of light from warm to cool across the image and it has nice leading lines and reflection, too. Ticks all the boxes!

  • Thank you so much Odille for your kind words!
