• Cut Favorites – 2016

    There are a few images that didn’t make the cut for the Favorites post from a few days ago. But I wanted to share them with you as well since they really are close to my heart.                        


  • Favorites – 2016

    It is this time of the year where one revisits the past 12 months. For me, among others, this means reviewing some of the 13,000 images I took during the year and select my favorites. Let me tell you that’s not an easy task! Already during the year, I pre select candidates.  But at the end, […]


  • Favorites 2016 – Abstracts

    I am working on the selection of my favorite images of 2016. But there are some that don’t really fit into in with my regular images. So I put them in a separate gallery. The camera doesn’t always need to show what our eyes see. Sometimes moving the camera creates interesting patterns. The images shown […]


  • Favorites – 2015

    This is the fifth time that I have made a selection of my 10 favorite images of the year. It is always a very informative and fulfilling exercise. Here are the links to the previous year’s selections: 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 My Lightroom catalog tells me that I took almost 20,000 images in 2015. […]


  • Black and White Favorites from the Past

    When I was asked to join the black&white photo challenge, I immediately knew that I did not want to use already published images. So I either selected unpublished work or created new work.  But during this process I thought it would be nice to highlight some of previously published oldies as well. So here we go. […]


  • My Favorites – 2014

    2014 was an exciting year.  One of its highlights was definitely my first trip to China where I visited Guizhou Province and Shanghai. Many other trips were closer to home: journeys up and down the California coast, to the Eastern Sierra, to Tahoe, to Yosemite, to Oregon, to … Well, it was very fulfilling.  It […]

    Favorites 2013

    This is the third time after 2011 and 2012 that I compile my favorite images of the year. It all started for me by Jim Goldstein‘s project ‘Your Best Photos From 2011’  where he asked photographers to submit their best photos to his compilation (Thank you, Jim!). I think it is very rewarding to go through […]


  • Favorites – 2012

    This is the second installment of my 10 favorite photos of the year compilation. Here is the link to last year’s favorites in case you want to see them (again). Apart from shooting in my backyard (San Francisco Bay Area), up and down the Pacific coast and in the Sierra Nevada (especially Yosemite), I traveled to […]


  • Favorites – 2011

    Over the holidays, I spent some time to revisit the pictures taken during 2011. It is always fun to review pictures taken during a year. It is not only the pictures, but all the  memories associated with them. Yeah, this was a good year! Here I have ten favorites. It was tough to select them […]
