Started my Season

Recommended Posts

andreas

Yesterday I started my fossil season 2018. It was the first real warm spring weekend this year. What a good feeling to get out again on such a beautyful day.

Fortune was along with me and so I found several Triassic ammonoids. The small ones in the block are of upper Carnian(Tuvalian) age. The black Arcestes are of Norian age.

Much snow is still on the higher mountains so it will last longer to start collecting at higher locations this year.

 

regards

Andreas

I don't think I could stop taking pictures long enough to find any fossils here. How can you even bring yourself to look down instead of out!? Lucky!!!

No problem, fortunately, we have this scenery day in - day out. So there are indeed a few moments in between to look down for fossils ;).

Yes, I've found Cochloceras and Rhabdoceras. Peripleurites and Vandaites are on my list. You can view a slab with Cochloceras from that area in my album.

 

Malcomt, this is near Salzburg like Roger said. He was there with me. 360°pic was taken with one leg in Germany and one leg in Austria. On the left end of the panorama you can see the runway of Salzburg airport and the town Salzburg in the distance.

 

RJB and Tidgy's Dad there are more scenery and Triassic ammonids on my blogs. Please be free to read it if you are interested.

 

Devoniandigger, to look down is the easier part of the game, to bring down what you find is sometimes harder.

 

FranzBernhard is right, we are blessed with nature. But beauty always is in the eye of the beholder and of course everyone can get used to it.

Dunno why, but the images from there remind me of the Cascade range out west.

Congratulations on your ammonoid finds. The scenery is magnificent. I would love to see the Alps again. What a great place to collect. Thanks for sharing your adventures with us.

Just the beautiful peaceful scenery would make any fossil collecting trip worthwhile, even if no fossils were found. :)
