We live 100 years or so. Sometimes we do suffer. Sometimes we wish we would last forever. Best idea? Take responsiblity and survive this moment.

All the energy in the world does not make us rule either. We are still searching, exploring, finding, developing. And our destination is not always seen clearly. Sometimes it is just magical. All that we have is this moment.

...a character study of a certain distinguished NF member, who by the way is very pleased with his new 50mm f/1.2 Nikkor for the Z system.

I use this lens for quite a while now. I bought it in December 2020. I guess I was one of the first owners in Germany.

Hans, Frank, and I went to the ferry landing to take the small ferry over to sky. However, the ferry engine just had broken down and thus no ferry crossing today. Probably  not while our stay lasts, either. Oh well. We had a nice coffee break at the tiny café close to the ferry landing instead and met interesting people there, and the coffee for once was enjoyable.

I shot some scenery with the adorable 35mm f/1.2 on the Z fc, but persistent rain foreced me back to the cottage lest I should have serious asthma issues. Frank and Hans continued their adventure ands I'm sure they have a tale or two to tell, or illustrate, when they return.

A fern, Dryopteris borreri, unfurling its spring-green fronds.

Z fc with the 35mm f/1.2 Nokton, at f/1.2. It was very windy and I think I missed critical sharpness due to the wind-induced movements. But still an enjoyable image resulted.

When we reached the top of the pass, the sun came out for a moment. Hans stepped out and I shot him from the car

I wish you all a great time, many laughter, and a pinch of malt whisky! Looking forward to more images from this NG get-together.
