This was the Photoadventure 2018. Those two days were - as always - very intense. For the first time we presented our new project "Conifer needles in cross section" to a broader audience. The feedback was very positive and motivating to continue with the new topic. The FineArt prints were done by Sepp. Thanks for your effort to meet our narrow timeframe.
