Additions to Iceland gallery

Some months ago I browsed my Iceland picutre folder and finished three more pictures which I uploaded only on social media so far. If you like my work make sure to follow me on social media, I update content more often over there. Please find the respective links in the “About” section.


New prints arrived

Some weeks ago I received new prints. It’s a good mix of colourful landscapes and abstract modern architecture prints. I had the idea to create a little abstract b/w square gallery at home, hence the many squares. For that I might have to clean one of the walls first, they are already full of prints, so I might sell some of them later.

The prints on the first image are (top left to right): 2x HD metal alu-dibond, 1x canvas print
The second image shows a print on fabric and the third image shows normal alu-dibon prints.

I placed a recent buy (CD album INTERVALS – The Shape of Colour) next to my prints for size comparison 😉
Thank you WhiteWall for providing such high quality prints, I really love those HD metal alu-dibond prints!

Sirui tripod repairs

Remember the post Finally a new tripod from approx. 3 years ago?

Finally my Sirui M-3204X (nowadays N-3204X) tripod  has shown some wear and it was about time to get it repaired. Nothing actually broke, only the half shells – which are part of the sliding mechanism – in the upper segment were worn out and sliding out the segment was really hard or not possible at all. Sometimes the sement even came off, like shown in the picture on the right.

Actually I wanted to get it repaired already earlier but never was sure whether I would get it b14215410_1032975160154142_1926410967_oack in time for planned photography trips. After I returned from the Faroe Islands a bit more than a week ago I knew that I can spare the tripod for a while because no other photography trips were planned.

What can I say, I sent the tripod in for service and received it back within 4 days only! Fully repaired and covered by the warranty (which is 6 years) coming with a nice letter stating what has been exchanged and repaired. Wow, when I received it back I couldn’t believe that it took not even a week. I’m impressed Sirui! This makes me confident to keep recommending Sirui tripods to other people. The price / value ratio is amazing!
