Upgrade...

After three years the backend needed an overhaul. Fortunately my webhost offered an easy switch to wordpress. It is yet another photoblog and the plugin came in handy.

So: site got upgraded, season has started.
Coming next: This year ought to see another trip to Norway, so more pictures of vast landscapes, clouds, glaciers and few people.

Orpierre

The hamlet of Orpierre has seen its days as a climbing mecca come and gone. While still featuring a wide range of climbs in all difficulties as well as several easy and mid-level multi-pitch-routes there are few extremely hard routes and stars of the climbing scene will hardly pay Orpierre a visit.

Whoever turns of the A51 between Aix-en-Provence and Gap will find the sleeping village with the basic set of facilities. One camping ground and a couple of gite, one super market, one bistro and one climbing-store.

The pictured peak towers above Orpierre, catching the afternoon-sun.

halflife in iceland

This bridge leads over the outlet of Jökulsárlón. Here one of the largest glaciers, Vatnajökull extends a glacier tongue called Breiðamerkurjökull. Gradually ice is breaking off and floats towards the sea.

The bridge is part of the ring road which leads around Iceland. Bridges usually are „einbreid bru“, meaning only one lane for both directions.

We had to rise early to catch the sunrise awakening the glacier and the lake. At noon the place is crowded with tourists, and even at five in the morning we were not alone. Some tourists had slept beside the lake in their van and where doing yoga exercises – not exactly an icelandish tradition, but with the magical atmosphere it didn’t appear to be out of place.
