RUND UM mit einem Sonnenuntergang

Letztes Jahr war die Rundum kurz vor dem America’s Cup in Bermuda, eigentlich bin ich wegen der Rudum ein paar Tage zu späht nach Bermuda gereist. Der Sonnenuntergang in der Region Überlingen hat es aber voll kompensiert.

Nun war ich wir wieder auf dem Bodensee. Die Wettervorhersage war nicht ideal. Wenn man den Himmel betrachtet war klar das da noch ein Gewitter kommen wird und genau das sorgt für das gewisse etwas. Die Sonne verschwand ein paar Mal hinter den Wolkenschichten, und so wechselte das Licht fast alle 5 Minuten. Leider waren die Zeitfenster für eindrucksvolle Aufnahmen somit etwas kürzer als sonst.

Es ist immmer wieder aufs neue Eindrucksvoll die Natur zu beobachten, sie ist immer anders und überascht uns immer wider aufs neue.
Mit einem Click auf die Bilder gelangen sie zu weiteren Aufnahmen.


Seit einigen Jahren träume ich davon ein paar Monate lang auf und rund um den Bodensee ununterbrochen während mehreren Monate den See und die Umgebung zu fotografieren, und danach ein Buch zu Publizieren mit diesen Aufnahmen. Währe schön wenn sich das mal realisieren lässt.

Reflections Act 2

Blu26 Schweizermeisterschaft 2018 Zug

I’ve been looking at the reflection on the water for quite a few years, and as more I think about them, they become more interesting for me – the reflections are abstract and provide a wide space for imagination. I find something new in it every time when looking at the photos.

Last weekend I was photographing the Blu26 regatta in Switzerland on a lake which is known for not being the windiest place on earth, and yes, we had flat water for three days (sigh).

Time to be creative with the reflections, what do you see in them?

These and more images are now available as Fine Art Prints. Click here or on one of the photos to see the complete selection.

Modern Nature

Have been sitting by the water so many times and for so many reasons. Was it to find a solution for a problem, or simply to relax a bit and to enjoy time. Water is a magic element powerful, dangerous and beautiful. Can you hear the peaceful sound of this small waves hitting the the shoreline is so peaceful.
This harmonic shapes of reflections looks so modern, but in reality they have been here longtime before the humanity.

Live is clear today, we try to look into the future, it’s bright? That’s what we all hope, is it clear, what will it be?

Nazaré Big Waves

JK_BIG_WAVES_4823

Portugal Atlantic coast in Nazaré, that’s as big as it get’s. Thank’s to a big underwater canyon finishing right in front of the Praia do Norte, the swell comes to the shore and the end of the canyon will be build up the wave to what we know the Nazaré wave.

This waves are from the crazy Wednesday in November 2018. Over night the waves were building up. Right before midnight I drove down to the faro the lighthouse from Nazaré, it was dark no light no stars and no moon. No horror movie will ever be as impressive as the noise of the waves crashing in the rocks below the lighthouse.
The next morning with the first light I finally could see with my eyes the Nazaré waves.

High Resolution Panorama from Hong Kong Skyline for the New Year

cropped-tumblr_inline_o0itj3wdcp1qcd3or_540.jpg

Happy New Year !

A few years ago this would have been a high budget almost impossible shooting producing a photo which can be printed with all details visible even on a size of 10m wide.

The base is a Nikon D810e the resolution of 36 megapixel and a great dynamic range capturing bright and dark areas in never seen quality for DSLR cameras. 10 perfectly captured photos stitched together give this panorama image resulting in a photo with 264 megapixel.

Detail view….

Not that we want to see what’s happeing inside the appartments of Hong Kongs citizens but we could if we keep zooming.

Zurich’s harborcrane during the #‎dasischzüri‬ photo contest and exhibition

A unusual photoexhibition in the streets of Zurich organized and promoted by the local Radio 24. 100 photos representing the city of Zurich in a unusual way have been choosen by a jury and are now in display on billbords in the streets. Very creative idea way better than the usual postcards subjects from the last decades.

The harborcrane “Hafenkan” installed last summer on the Limmat was the source for controversial discussions. Is it art or simply a waste of money?
Gear used: Nikon D800 Nikon 12-24mm 2.8 Lense
