A new view onto the world.

Hello everybody!
I am astro particle physicist and since one year also a passionate time lapse photographer.
Shooting time lapse movies in crowded places is not that easy. The image left shows an example from a fairground which takes place annually at the place I live. People think that a photographer with a big camera and a tripod must be a professional party photographer and they keep on trying to get onto the picture... To counteract, long time exposure above 2 seconds help quite a lot, because these people hardly can stay still.
The final result with more shots from Wadenswil and Sta Cruz de La Palma is on vimeo, a great video sharing site for enthusiasts!

If you want to watch it in high definition (1080p), you have to go to vimeo itself.
