Beautiful day after the temperature rollercoaster

Today was the first day that I felt fit enough to go for a photo walk, after having gotten ill last week. After long stretches of stable and warm weather I forget, that I need to put on warmer clothes and shoes when it gets colder again. This keeps happening to me again and again. ...

Oded Wagenstein – Ageing in the tundra “Forgotten Like Last Year’s Snow“

A dream come true: Whale Watching

Hey guys, Today I don’t want to say a lot but mainly let the pictures I took speak for themselves.

Mountains, forests, beaches and cities provide the perfect scenery for this. Often underestimated but no less beautiful is the extraordinary and colorful underwater world. We have summarized a ...

Picture vs. life? Volcano tourism on Hawaii

The pictures traveled around the world. At present Hawaii has been struck by one of the strongest volcano eruptions for decades. Although Hawaiians have always lived with their volcanoes and been aware of the risks and although most inhabitants have already experienced several eruptions, the situation now is quite different. The Kilauea (translation “the spewing ...
