Traveling and photographing

Submitted by Jürgen Tenckhoff on Sat, 10/12/2019 - 15:33
Karin and I have been traveling around the world for over 40 years and have realized photo projects in many countries, which we now want to present in this internet presence in the form of illustrated short travel articles. Thus, the already established categories for continents and travel reports will fill up little by little with suitable contributions. In addition, we will set up categories on special topics of photography, such as startrail and infrared photography, etc., and explain our applied recording techniques in appropriate contributions.

Neuschwanstein Castle stands above Hohenschwangau near Füssen in the Allgäu. The building was built in 1869 for the Bavarian King Ludwig II. The king only lived in the castle for a few months; he died before the complex was completed. There are many stories about his death. Neuschwanstein was originally called New Hohenschwangau Castle, and has had its current name since 1886.


Visiting penguins in New Zealand

The sticker on my travel diary shows how important the protection of the penguins is in New Zealand. This sign was also found in large on New Zealand's roadsides. When we planned the trip it was clear that we would also try to see the different types of penguins in New Zealand. On the second day on the South Island, we started our first attempt from Christchurch and made our way to the coast.
