Photographer's Note

I thought since the winter Olympics were going on, I would pull out some pictures I took of the Bergisel Ski Jump in Innsbruk, Austria. While it was not used in the two Olympics held in Innsbruk (Construction completed in 2002 and replaced earlier jumps), two yearly competitions are held here; the International Four-Hill Ski-Jumping competition in January and the summer jumping competition as part of the summer Grand Prix in August.

The building seen at the top was designed by Zaha Hadid, and has three levels consisting of a restaurant and an observation deck, in which a fantastic view of the surrounding area can be seen from 250 m above Innsbruck.

More pictures to come in the upcomming days.
