• 5 Days of Black and White Photo Challenge

    Half Dome with rising moon

    A while ago, my friend Regis challenged me to take part of the Five Day Black and White Photo Challenge. The aim is to post a new b/w image for five consecutive days and invite someone each day to join the quest. I have posted the images on social media, but thought it would be nice to […]


  • Postcard from Hörnli, Switzerland

    Swiss alps panorama

    Yesterday we went for a short hike to the top of the Hörnli, our local mountain. It is only 1,133 meters (3,717 ft) high, but still much higher than the surrounding hills. Often this is the escape to see the sun when the lower elevations are covered in fog. We arrived a bit too late to see […]


  • Louis Vuitton Cup, Race 8, ETNZ vs. LR

    ETNZ and LR after mark 1 in the fog.

    This post is part of my America’s Cup in San Francisco blog post series. Today was race 8 of the Louis Vuitton Cup. With a win, Emirates Team New Zealand could close the series. But the weather was much different than in the past few races. The wind was hovering just below 10 kts and the Golden […]


  • AC72s training in the foggy bay

    This post is part of my America’s Cup in San Francisco blog post series. Today was the first time Oracle raced their two AC72’s in the bay. At one point I was able to capture a sequence where one of their boats made a quick turn while foiling (edit: that’s called gybing on foils)! This is just […]


  • Oregon Coast – Florence

    Siuslaw River Bridge with Fog

    Over Thanksgiving, we visited Oregon and its coast. We stayed one night in Florence right on the Siuslaw river. When we arrived – pretty late, everything was covered in a thick layer of fog. It really looked mystic and I had to take some pictures before having dinner. Right next to the hotel were several […]


  • San Francisco’s Sutro Tower at Sunset

    San Francisco's Sutro Tower at Sunset

    There is not that much to say…  An other beautiful sunset here in San Francisco. Under a big sky, Twin Peaks is covered in a thick layer of fog through which the Sutro Tower antennas stick out.


  • Golden Gate Bridge in the Fog

    San Francisco and fog are almost synonyms, at least during summer. Spring and fall are the sunny seasons with little fog. We just had some gorgeous spring days and then the fogged rolled in again. Having some fog in the picture is always better than having just a clear blue sky. So I ventured out […]
