    Puffins of Iceland

    I just watched my Puffin video ( 45 min ) from Iceland.I need to download it then upload it, which is going to take some time in bad old germany.I hope you can enjoy it then.Also on the tape a Fumarole, very huge , maybe a former geysir.Lavafields.Myvatn Lake.A huge vulcano crater I visited in 89 when noone was going there before.A whale tours puffin part of the tour.I will upload bits and pieces maybe 5 minutes of the 90 minute tape.Upload speed is still slow.
    Those moments with the puffins were some of the most overwhelming of my life.

    Tanner:Thanks.Maybe I go to Lech this spring yet.Hope with stem cells next seson I am 100 % recovered.I however did nothing dangerous, just intentional hostile interaction caused my injury.Sure the Frankfurt Main street is closed down now due to my cross road with one and a half circle with bike crossing in which 8 cars had less than 1 cm each from my bike.But I tell you this was supersave.My injury is the result of an intentional attack on me, solely.
    I am glad to hear you took this to your heart and said fuck skiing, I am recovering, I will do this shit right and not ski to early again.
    Fucking glad you are getting back on the track and keep your long hair.

    If you check under my name on youtube you will find my 133 MB video there.It is even sharp unlike many of the puffin vids.Problem is depth of field in diffuse light and with grass in front on many layers.There are other good puffin vids and such ones dehumanising them made by hunters.
    People may say my footage ain´t good but what can they say ? My ma was best of year in medical school ( was ! ) and my granddad best of Bavaria in university.I like my footage a lot and I made it just as good as I could.
    It is a point of view thing.

    Your video really conveyed the erratic flight patterns of the atlantic puffins. It was like putting a POV cam on the wing - thrilling!

    You should go to Alaska - they're like pigeons up there.

    Hi !

    Yea, I had no stativ and could not get one there anyhow and had to hold it steady or rest it on a stone or so - if you just vibrate then it shakes like mad at 300 fold magnification.
    You need to stay as far as possible and yet get them as well as possible.Also the grass makes the camera think the motiv is somewhere else than the Puffin.As you either get out of the grass making all puffins fly away or film through it, you gotta zoom it till you got the puffin depth of field.And mine like most modern videocams have no handzoom.
    Then you gotta make a nice movie in terms of angles etc. and show everything flight colony family holes young silver eels in mouth the food dive beak etc. I got 22 minutes of it and it is wonderful I think.Hope I will even get better someday, but I won´t do it at the cost of harrassing them.
