Konigsee https://www.ahmadphotography.com/blog/2018/1/konigsee One of the most beautiful locations in Germany, and possibly all of Europe. Situated amongst picturesque Berchtesgaden in Bavaria, Germany. The water is amazingly clear, and the silence is something to be experienced owing to only electric or rowing boats being allowed on the lake.

Lahore Fort https://www.ahmadphotography.com/blog/2015/11/lahore-fort The Lahore Fort is worth visiting if you find yourself in Lahore. I studied in Lahore for many years but rarely took the time out to visit it properly. On our last visit to Pakistan we decided to take the kids to this sprawling complex to "educate" them on the history of the Mughals, their rise, and ultimate decline. A visit to this location is a poignant affair, it's a story of the "end of empire", and more so, a reflection on the glorious architectural heritage left behind by the Mughals. The area has been cleaned up recently, and has started to draw many more tourists than usual. The weather wasn't that great, fog as usual, which is a common occurrence during the winter months in the low lying Punjab. A dull sky did not lend much in the way of "classic" photography images, but it was good fun nevertheless.

Dharmarajika https://www.ahmadphotography.com/blog/2015/11/dharmarajika  

The Dharmarajika is a large Buddhist stupa in Taxila, near Islamabad in Pakistan. It is thought that it was established by the emperor Ashoka in the 3rd century BCE and included the relics of Budha. The stupa is also popularly called as 'Chir Tope.'The site of divided into two parts: the stupa area in the south and the monastic area in the north (Source: Wikipedia)

These images were taken one evening on a quick tour of the area last December. Pakistan is not really a safe place to travel especially in the evening. We arrived late  as the sun was already setting. Thankfully I had my tripod with me and managed to take a few quick snaps whilst the family waited patiently. The ruins are nicely preserved (by local standards, that is) and there was a guide who riddled us with information in the few short minutes he spent with us. Amusing stuff.

I had always wanted to visit the ruins, they are part of a number of similar Buddhist sites dotted around the area but we had to head back to Islamabad before it got dark. Which is a shame really.

Side note: we had lunch (a simple "truck hotel" daal roti - lentils with leavened bread) near Taxila, It was one of the best meals we had during our whole trip.

Quarry https://www.ahmadphotography.com/blog/2015/10/quarry This other worldly place is all that remains of what used to be a mountain range near Sargodha in Pakistan. The demand for crushed stone has led to huge mountains being dug up. Over time, rainfall has resulted in the formation of deep crater lakes, calm, serene, and dangerous if you were to slip and fall into the deep pools. Just to give you an idea of scale, the large column in the middle image rises nearly 40 metres high from the surface.

Fishermen's Memorial https://www.ahmadphotography.com/blog/2014/11/fishermens-memorial Urk is a lovely and active fishing village in the Netherlands but like every fishing village it too has more than it's fair share of tragedies. The statue here is to commemorate those who did not return from their fishing trips. Known as the "Urker VissersMemorial" in Dutch, it shows a woman looking out to see waiting for her loved one(s) to return. Very poignant indeed. On the side walls are shields bearing the names of those who did not return. The names also remind us that fishing was a family business with many having the same surname. The lighthouse is another iconic part of this place.

Photokina 2014, a mini report https://www.ahmadphotography.com/blog/2014/11/photokina-2014-a-mini-report I can say I was there, although I tried my best not to be. I had heard about Photokina a few years ago when I adopted photography in earnest and thought about making the trip from Amsterdam in 2012 but never got around to it. This year I was quite keen to attend. The photography sites I usually haunt  mentioned that it's not as great in terms of product releases and announcements as it used to be. So naturally I was a bit hesitant to make the trip just to see a load of camera gear. I paid for the tickets online in advance but kept wondering whether it was worth it. Finally, on the last day of the event I pushed myself free from my lethargy and drove down to Cologne, The nice thing is that Cologne is only a couple of hours away from Amsterdam so it was an easy trip to make. 
In short, I arrived as pretty much everyone was leaving - it was about 4 PM in the afternoon! I only had a short time to visit some of the exhibitors - mainly Nikon, Zeiss, and Leica. It's a huge exhibition with hundreds of exhibitors. I felt depressed as I entered the Exhibition Centre as it dawned on me that I should have made the trip earlier. One full day can barely do this event justice, you need at least a couple of days. The models had packed up when I arrived, the Birds of Prey were conducting their final fly pasts, exhibitors were packing up, and I was one of the last visitors to leave. The event is a must see, not just because of the gear, but also owing to the exhibitions which I found very interesting, It is so nice to see images printed large. The other nice element is that there is no pressure to sell and you can try everything from expensive cameras to lenses and everything in-between. It was also amusing to see so many people taking images of  cameras and lenses, perhaps they were all reviewers - who isn't nowadays?
2016 - the dates are already in the diary!

Val di Gardena https://www.ahmadphotography.com/blog/2014/11/val-di-gardena A morning spent driving around the Val di Gardena and Sasso Lungo passes in the Dolomites. Lovely weather, and it seemed I had the whole area to myself, with barely anyone else around. There were some mini landslides on the road and it impressive to note that the Italian Road Agency was already on site clearing the snow off the road. Images were taken with a combination of the Fuji X-E1 (18-55mm) and the Panasonic G3 (9-18mm lens).

Memories of Spring https://www.ahmadphotography.com/blog/2014/10/memories-of-spring I was only able to visit the Tulip fields in and around Lisse twice this year. A combination of poor weather, work commitments and lethargy kept me away. A shame really as it is quite magical, especially when the weather cooperates.

Keukenhof - Spring Past https://www.ahmadphotography.com/blog/2014/10/keukenhof---spring-past We usually visit Keukenhof in the Netherlands at least a couple of times annually. This year we only managed to visit once, even though I had bought a "season pass". These are from a brief afternoon trip to the famous gardens in North Holland. They even had a "funky chicken" on display this year. I thought I would post these images as Autumn sets in and the days grow colder.

A walkabout on the North and South Embankments of the Thames around the Palace of Westminster in London. Tony Benn, a much loved Member of Parliament had passed away a few days earlier. There were tributes and flowers left in a small designated area in Parliament Square. Unsure of the name of the MP responding to reporters questions … send me an email if you have a clue.

St Andrew, Alfriston https://www.ahmadphotography.com/blog/2014/1/alfriston-church St Andrew's Church is the parish church of Alfriston, East Sussex, England. This Grade I listed building was built in the 1370s and is also known as the 'Cathedral of the Downs'. It sits on a small, flint-walled mound, indicating that it was the site of a pre-Christian place of worship. It is located in the middle of the local village green and overlooks  River Cuckmere. source

When things go wrong ... https://www.ahmadphotography.com/blog/2013/12/when-things-go-wrong I had always wanted to photography this iconic London location. Whilst on a recent trip to the UK, I decided to make a beeline for the South Bank after the conference I was attending finished early. I had already packed my cameras, tripods (yes, multiple), batteries charged etc, etc.

The sun had already set when I arrived (tip: Parking in London is expensive, park in the Royal National Theatre in the evening for relatively cheap and secure parking). I grabbled my camera bag and tripod only to realise that the release plate on my small travel tripod was missing. I had been out the day before at the London Eye and Palace of Westminster and must have left it on the "other" camera. Oh dear. Thankfully I had my heavier tripod with me (though was in no mood to carry it) so I picked it up wearily and started making my way across the South London Embankment. Literally ran to the Millennium Bridge, opened up my tripod, took out my camera and voila; there was the release plate for the smaller tripod. No harm done. Yet. Once I set my camera on the tripod I noticed something was wrong, the tripod head was loose! And I needed an Allen key to tighten the top. I doubt visitors to St Pauls' Cathedral, or even the City of London for that matter, had heard so many profanities prior to that day.

I hoped for the best, and tried to capture a few images but the tripod head was too loose and wobbled continuously. Pedestrian traffic did not help either. My best attempt of what could have been a lovely evening out is before. The second one below is hand held - my consolation picture.

The moral of the story, plan, recheck, and double check .. everything!.  And thanks to the photographer who loaned me his Allen key after 30 minutes of begging every cyclist and photographer I could locate. But by that time, the blue hour was over, and darkness had descended over the Thames.

Corfe and Castle, Dorset https://www.ahmadphotography.com/blog/2013/4/corfe-and-castle-dorset  

In and around Corfe and the famous Castle, in Dorset. Shame the National Trust closed the site at 15:30 on this lovely afternoon. 

The first image is with a Fuji X100, and the remainder three with a Sony RX100. Don't ask why I was carrying both with me ....

Frankfurt Old Town https://www.ahmadphotography.com/blog/2013/4/frankfurt-old-town  

A weekend trip to Frankfurt am Main, Germany, a quite pleasing blend of new and old. Wonderful skyline with many buildings going up in the new part of town. Will have to visit again to capture them in the blue hour. The old town - Romerberg - is also quite interesting though the whole place was dug up owing to roadworks. 

Fuji X100.

Polder White out https://www.ahmadphotography.com/blog/2013/1/polder-white-out  

Walkabout on Bovenkerk Polder in Amstelveen near our home. It is quite convenient carrying the Sony RX100 rather than a larger camera for this type of photography. The white background is a result of the snow coming down hard. A polder is reclaimed (marshy) land in Dutch.

Rowing practise in the Bosbaan, Amsterdamse Bos. Bosbaan is the oldest artificial rowing course in the world. It is 2.2 km in length.

A sequence of images from preparation to rowing off. You can see the trainer and 'time keeper' standing on the mooring and giving instructions. The trainer will follow the rowers along the cycle path that runs parallel to the rowing lake and use a megaphone to instruct and motivate the teams. It can be loud.
