The Olympiastadion (Olympic Stadium) is a sports stadium in Berlin, Germany. There have been two stadiums on the site: the present facility, and one that is called the Deutsches Stadion which was built for the aborted 1916 Summer Olympics. Both were designed by members of the same family, the first by Otto March and the second by his son Werner March. It is the second biggest stadium in Germany behind Signal Iduna Park. It is the home stadium of the Hertha Berlin football team playing in the German Bundesliga.
The current Olympiastadion was originally built for the 1936 Summer Olympics in the southern part of the Reichssportfeld (today Olympiapark Berlin). During World War II, the area suffered little damage. After the war, the British military occupation used the northern part of the Reichssportfeld as its headquarters until 1994. From 1951 to 2005, the Olympischer Platz had a giant antenna transmitting for all the portable radios in Berlin.
Aside from its use as an Olympic stadium, the Olympiastadion has a strong footballing tradition. Historically, it is the ground of club Hertha BSC since 1963. It was also used for 3 matches in the 1974 FIFA World Cup. It hosted six matches, including the final, in the 2006 FIFA World Cup and was renovated for that reason. The German Cup final match is held each year at the Olympiastadion. The stadium sees use in other sports as well; at one point it held the world record for the attendance of a baseball game, thought to be over 110,000.
The elusive Aurora Borealis brought out a lot of photographers on this night. Astrophysicists predicted a level 2 geomagnetic storm which caused a lot of hustle and bustle in the local photography scene. Minnewanka Lake provides a fantastic vantage point to the northern sky where the Aurora was expected. Unfortunately it was a bust in this part of the world. Can't say I didn't stay up late enough as I got home at 4:30AM.
Nach diesem Bild war ich von Kopf bis Fuß Staub bedeckt. Ich finde das wars wert. Was meint ihr?
Taken for the DIYPhotography's Bag O' Goodies Assignment (Sports).
I won! Congrats to the runners ups, nice competition!
Snooted 580s on each side of the swimming pool, bare 580 II for the backlight, all of them almost at ground level.
Yongnuo remotes (the swimming pool is 25 meters long).
Fog machine for the fog ^^
Easy DIY used: the snoots are made out of Tetra Briks, black spray paint on the outside, black tape for the borders.

I decided to mix it up a bit and post something a bit outside my norm, in fact, you could say it's almost the exact opposite of the peaceful, calm, people-free landscapes I typically post. Football season is upon us and I was able to go to the Seattle Seahwaks home opener at Qwest Field a few weeks ago. Rather than bring my super long telephoto like all the other photographers at the stadium, I decided to bring my wide angle lens and see just how wide it could get. Combined with the full frame of the D700, I was blown away at how much I was able to get in with the 14mm wide angle lens. I thought this perspective was rather interesting as not only did it really show how large the stadium is, but it also really led your eye to the city skyline backdrop in the distance. Here's a fun fact, though Seattle is known to get it's fair share of rain, both of the sports stadiums are open-air (though the baseball stadium, SAFECO field, does have a roof that closes).
About the shot, this was a 9 shot HDR that was hand-held. This was very tricky without a tripod and I had to set my ISO up higher than I'm usually comfortable with in order to be able to take the shot. I was surprised at little noise there was but still did give it a quick pass in NoiseWare. Then just some standard post processing for levels and contrast to balance out the image. Definitely need to view this one stadium size to appreciate the detail. Hope you all have a wonderful week!

It was standing-room-only on Sunday at Miller Park, home of the Milwaukee Brewers major league baseball team. A notable feature of the 13-year-old park is its complex and massive convertible roof that can be opened or closed in less than 10 minutes. With temperatures only in the 40s F and a strong chance of rain, the roof was closed on Sunday, making this the best view of the sky available. The day was even gloomier for Milwaukee fans, as the last-place Chicago Cubs knocked off the first-place Brewers by a 4-0 score.

Tele2 Arena and the road beside it. Kind of nice juxtaposition, I thought! The first proper photowalk of 2015.
