After several days of rain, we awoke to a beautiful sunrise near Fifi beach on La Désirade. La Désirade is a little island in the Caribbean 10 miles away from ‘mainland’ Guadeloupe. There are several beaches where fishermen leave their boats anchored near the shore or directly on the beach. Along with tourism, fishing is […]

Since I already planed to go to Hawk Hill in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area to photograph the fly-by of the Space Shuttle Endeavour (link), I decided to get up a few hours earlier to capture the sunrise as well. This is something I wanted to do for a long time but never had […]
This post is part of my Mongolia blog post series. The following pictures were taken at sunrise in the Khongoryn Els sand dunes, from a slightly different location than the previous night (link). The dunes were a little bit smaller so it was easier to climb them. Once at the top, the view was magnificent, beautiful lines of […]
A while back, we decided to make a short detour via the Merced National Wildlife Refuge on our way to Yosemite. I miscalculated when we had to get up to be at the wildlife refuge to capture the early morning light. So we arrived a bit too late. Just before arriving at the gate, the sun rose […]
Right now in late October is a good time to make sunrise pictures. The light is beautiful and sunrise is rather late in the morning. For a while now, I was looking forward to photograph the famous Elm tree in Yosemite’s Cook’s Meadow backlit by the rising sun. As it turned out, I was not […]
This was a very busy year and I clearly didn’t spend enough time blogging about my different photographic adventures. My photo catalog tells me, that I took more than 15,000 images. Wow! Although I lacked posting many of the new images, I did catalog them. This made it much easier to select my 10 favorite […]
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. […]
We had reserved a cabin in Yosemite’s Curry Village several months ago without knowing what weather to expect. Late November is kind of in between seasons, a bit late for fall colors and a bit early for a snow covered winter landscape. While preparing for last weekend’s trip, we obviously checked the weather forecast and were […]
I love being outside at night and gazing at the stars. Due to the light pollution around big cities, only a small part of the night sky is visible. To avoid this, one has to travel far away to have a chance to see the dark sky glowing with stars and maybe even the milky […]
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 […]
