• Riverscapes in Sichuan Province, China

    An ongoing project I have is to capture moving bodies of water using long-time exposure. That image series is called waterscapes. While visiting the Sichuan province in China a few months ago, we stopped along a river to take a break. It was a great spot with a decent amount of water flowing over and […]


  • Pillar Point Harbor Fishing Pier

    I really got used to the gorgeous weather we had lately and when I ventured out this afternoon, I didn’t check any web cams to see if fog was in the air. Maybe that’s a good thing, otherwise I might have stayed home. Since I wasn’t thinking of fog, my original plan didn’t work. Still, […]


  • Sunset in Capitola

    Capitola is a small coastal town east of Santa Cruz, California, at the northern end of the Monterey Bay. Usually if you are on the pacific coast, you see the setting sun over the ocean. But the Capitola beach faces south east and not west. This means sun sets behind you. Lately we have one […]


  • Postcard from the Mendocino Coast

    As it has been a very long time since my last post so I thought to show you two images from last night. With them I wish you a wonderful holiday season!


  • Waterscapes – Big Sur

    I was in the process to prepare some images for printing when I realized, that I haven’t yet posted them on my blog. These images were created while I visited Big Sur a few months ago. It is a continuation of my Waterscapes project (link) where I explore the effect of long time exposure on […]


  • Oregon Coast – Boiler Bay and Otter Crest

    Lately, I went back to playing with long time exposure (LTE) imagery. Additionally, I like the look of black&white. Here I have a small collection of pictures taken at Boiler Bay and Otter Crest State Wayside during a recent trip down the Oregon coast.


  • Postcard from Sutro Baths

    I continue my pursuit of monochromatic images created using slow shutter speed. These two images were taken from the Sutro Baths ruins (wikipedia), a former indoor swimming pool built in 1896 by Adolph Sutro and destroyed by a fire in 1966.


  • San Francisco and Bay Bridge at Dusk

    A few months ago, we were on a pier next to the Ferry Building during the evening twilight hours. I was taking some long-time exposures of the waterfront and the Bay Bridge. I like the feeling these black&white images provide. Image exposure times of more than a minute help to smooth out movements. The ocean […]
