Freedom

This one is from a falconer show. It's impressive to see these rather big birds fly. The falconers guide the birds quite close above the heads of the audience. I used a Nikon D7000 with a Nikkor 70-300mm lens to take that photo. Camera was set to high ISO and rapid fire to be able to shoot lots of photos at a high shutter speed. Slightly developed with Aperture.

Diana en el patio interno del castillo Kreuzenstein vista desde la entrada. Al fondo se ve el pozo del castillo (con su techo puntiagudo). El castillo está construido en capas concentricas. Cada una tiene su propia puerta y patio. Es como si hubiera un castillo dentro de otro.

Diana y Laura en el puente levadizo para personas del castillo Kreuzenstein. Existe otro más grande para carruajes. En caso de un ataque se eleva el puente para cerrar la entrada al castillo. La fosa bajo el puente es muy profunda (pero no tiene cocodrilos).

Patio interno del castillo Kreuzenstein mirando hacia la entrada. En primer plano está el pozo del castillo. En caso de un ataque, el pozo del castyillo era la única fuente de agua. El ataque podía durar años!

A blad eagle prepares to land. On the falconry workshop we were actually supposed to handle one of those - but she was simple too fed up to fly. So we had to play with the griffon vulture :)

At Castle Kreuzenstein there is an eagle show with falcons, eagles, owls and other birds of prey. Very amazing and quite intimidating when they fly only centimeters above your head!

According to general belief these are a good wise owl, a bad predating hawk and an ugly necrophagous vulture, but for me all three of them are amazingly beautiful and fascinating!
