Thank you guys!!
... sharing a moment of calm in a beautiful nature .
Peter, you are very right. Trubachtal is located in Franconian Switzerland. Franconian Switzerland was given its name by Romantic artists and poets in the 19th century who compared its landscape to Switzerland. The Franconian Switzerland is famous for its high density of traditional breweries. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Franconian_Switzerland.
Ideal for families who want to be out of the way of event vacations, looking for a quite and calm area, where you have time four yourself and your family.
... These slides should be a pleasure to look at projected on a large screen !
I agree. Sometimes I find the time for visiting a public slide show. One of my favourites was Reinhold Messner. His slides, although taken on 35mm film, were excellent. But nothing in comparison to 6x6 slide shows. You can project 6x6 slides on giant screens, and you are overwhelmed by excellent details, colors and sharpness.
Unfortunately, this discipline is sentenced to death. The modern world is digital with its pixel bolides, but the quality of affordable beamers are far away from the quality of a medium format projector, for a fraction of the price of a really good beamer.
Quite a lens (and quite a price right now on Ebay!).
Harold, yesterday evening, after I posted this contribution, I checked the prices for this lens on Ebay. I was surprised that some bidders offers to buy this lense for about 1200~1400€, while normal auctions tends to 500~700€.
I bought this lens as I mentioned about 1987 for DM 2500, about 1250€. To this time, it was a lot of money, and somehow crazy. On the other side, this lens worked for 30 years without any fault, everything is still like new. I have the feeling the old Zeiss lenses for Hasselblad are made for the eternity.
...Well Hanoi I thought you were just a digi camera guy
excalibur, I hate it to disappoint you, but I am more a digi camera guy than a film shooter. Eventhough I have to admit since I have the Nikon FM2 back, I am using film more frequently.
I know that you are still using films, and you can be be sure, I admire that. Somehow, it is a completely different approach. When I am using film, its more a celebration of taking photos. Not this click and click and click. Not only because of the extra money for developing the film, it is more to deal carefully with the film resource, which is limited to 24 or 36 images, for 6x6 only to 12. And the extra time you have to wait for getting the film back.
But I have very issues with my eyesight, focusing without electronic help is very difficult for me. You may imagine the disappointments when you get a film back, and the most images are out of focus.
