SnowCamp '06 - Pictures

Well, I am back from the SnowCamp '06 in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. This post will show some of the 1000 Pictures we have taken out there. better-office has offered a great knowledge tour. I will write more about the things we've learned there at a later point. Today I want to show you some pictures Thorsten, Daniel, and I have taken there while going to the Zugspitze, largest mountain in Germany. Some are from other days, read the notes. ;-) All pictures are copyright by their owners, those not taken by myself are marked explicitly. Simply drop me a mail for a original of any of mine. Click on any of the pictures for a larger view.

On Tuesday most of us went sledding. It was great fun and sometimes quite fast ;-)

If you want to go to school, learning Delphi, you need to get a copy. Here we are, after geo-caching and finding our very own copy of the Borland Developer Studio 2006.

The mountains seen from Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Looks quite cool when the sun is setting, doesn't it?

The frozen Eibsee (Eib-Lake). It's temperature is a freezing 40°C below zero! You can see it from the cable car bringing you to the Zugspitze.

The same mountain, the same light settings, just different filter, effect and white balance correction settings. Looks great, doesn't it? <-- I could say that for almost any of the pictures we have taken up there ;-)

Six of us decided to stay a day longer (the Friday) and go up the Zugspitze and enjoy ourselves. And we did, though it was freezing cold, 16°C below zero. Though it felt much worse with the winds up there.

Daniel Wolf, administrator of the Delphi-PRAXiS looks quite cold, doesn't he? But he didn't mind, it was so beautiful up there.

Some more breath-taking views from up there. Remember, we are city-guys and we do not see such views everyday, as some of you may ;-)

Some big utility cars used to prepare the skiing pists. When we used sleds to go down the mountain, one was coming right at us. What a scary thought not getting your sled to stop in time.

Thorsten is inspecting the highest church in Germany. It's right at the Zugspitz-Glacier and all snown-in ;-)

Me in the snow ;-)

I told you, it is a snow camp. Sitting in the snow, starting your laptop and doing some delphi. Now, this way you got a freezing butt...

Daniel and me walking in the sun. Still freezing temperatures though...

I did try skiing. I've learned that I need to get a trainer next time. Did you know that skis are actually slippery? I knew before, but now I know that I can barely hold myself on them, let alone use them to get anywhere...

Thought so too. And it's just a random selection out of 1000 pictures :)

Maybe you have a chance to come next year, they probably will do something along this line again.
