Who says you need a wide angle for landscape shots? This image of a partially burnt Araucaria forest near Villa Pehuenia in Northern Patagonia was shot handheld with @ 400mm focal length on a 7DII body, so effectively 640mm.
I love the ability of the long lens to separate a small part of the scenery from its surroundings.

Absolutely beautiful! Certainly no need for a wide lens if you can get a shot like this :)

Everest Nepal Basecamp. This is already 9 years ago, but it might give a clearer view of the disaster that happened last week.

You will need to see the original 400mp 360 Panorama for the details, but the destructive avalanche that killed several climbers came from the icefall on the 'V' shaped bit of the ridge leding right from PumoRi, the white peak on the right third of the image.

360degree Pano 3 rows of photos.

Loving our planet
Introduction
I am: Photographer of ExposedPlanet.com , Adventurer, climber @7summits.com, cyclist @ WorldOnaBike.com.

Humanitarian, trying to share the beauty of the planet and to improve the parts that need it.

I have started ExposedPlanet.com not only as a way to show my portfolio, but also to share the beauty of our planet. Nowadays negative press & media might make people scared of everything foreign or different: culture, religion, people and the places themselves.

This xenophobia is taking over our lives and prevents us from seeing the real world as it is: a wonderful place with beautiful people. There are no bad or evil countries, religions or people. There is bad and good people in every culture, including your own.

I hope I can share a bit of the amazement I have enjoyed while traveling the 7 continents. The more I see, the more I know I still have to see and I will.

Life is too short to focus on not-existing enemies & fears.

I hope that my images will sparkle your imagination, make you curious or even just educate you a bit, being maybe the 3 most important aspects of society in my view.

A picture can say more than a 1000 wars and can maybe help understand the world around us.

It’s a small place, so maybe we can make the best of it together.

Bragging rights
Happiest with little or no stuff. Can cook a meal outside at -40 degrees. Built my own 5-string bassguitar. Climbed 7 summits, published photographs & stories in many magazines and books, cycled Alaska-Patagonia, wrote 4 books. Saved and improved lives by replacing thousands of kerosene lamps in Africa and Asia by a self-developed solar-powered LED light. My sons & wife.
