Trying to capture the world & life through my lenses
Introduction

What can I say? I love photography :)


2012 was the year of street photography, 

2013 I concentrated on landscapes and I have yet to decide what I will focus on in 2014.

Wohin geht's dieses Jahr?

Für einmal habe ich noch keine Pläne. Wie sieht's bei Euch aus? Hat jemand inspirierende Ideen? Wenn es geht, gerne irgendwohin, wo das Wetter besser ist als im Moment :)
For the first time in years it is January and I have no idea, where I will spend my vacation. Maybe it is time to start planning? Do you already know, where you plan to go? I hope it will be a drea...

Treppenhaus

Haben wir nicht alle schon mal so ein Bild geschossen? Speziell, wenn wir Bilder in schwarzweiss mögen. Und ehrlich gesagt, sind sie meistens langweilig. Gott sei Dank war jemand so freundlich, die Treppe und nicht den Lift zu nehmen :)
Haven't we all taken a shot like this? Specially if we like black and white photography. Stairways shot from above provide lines, structure and ... boredom. Lets face it. Anyway, lately I decided t...

Bitte hier landen

Es soll ja Leute geben, die noch an den Weihnachtsmann glauben. So wie dieser hier, der einfach mal stinkfrech eine Landebahn in den See gebaut hat und die Landelichter eingeschaltet hat :)
It is this time of the year again. When we rush into shops to get our christmas presents at the last minute. What a stress! But hold on, isn't there a simpler way? A more convinient one? One that d...

Madonna del Sasso, Tessin

Bei meinem letzten Versuch war es noch eingerüstet... Nun konnte ich die Kirche endlich in ihrer ganzen Schönheit bewundern :)
Und das nächste Mal time ich es so, dass ich auch in die Kirche rein kann...


In 2012, I visited Locarno for the first time and then wanted to hike up to the church which is high above the town. It is called Madonna del Sasso and is part of the "Camina di Santiago", the pilg...

Freezing water

I wonder how many cold days it takes to freeze this waterfall...

I would expect wind, quantity of water, speed of flow and other factors to affect the time it takes to freeze.
