Seydisfjördur to Myvatn part 1

August 25, 2016

Best morning in Iceland! We drive from our fjördur to Borgarfjördur Eystri. It’s a super tiny village (luckily though including a petrol station, it would have been a long way to push the car back to town) with about 30’000 pairs of nesting puffins. There is a small harbor with a viewing platform where you […]

Skaftafell to Seydisfjördur – part 1

August 23, 2016

To avoid the rain in Skaftafell we drive another 8km and pitch our tent in Svinafell, another nice campsite and without rain. The weather is very local here, especially close to the glaciers. Luckily it stopped raining in Skaftafell overnight and we get back there in the morning for the walk to the Skaftafellsjökull glacier […]

Mirador Torres del Paine

August 2, 2015

end of the hike was promising the second best view of the cuernos. we arrived up there after a steep hike, rather windy, took my time to find a location and this is the only picture i managed to take before a sudden mist follow by snow kicked in. it snowed all night long till […]

Torres del Paine – the W hike

July 30, 2015

the famous hike around Torres del Paine , the “W hike” due to its shape is about 90km long, takes 5 days of moderate hike, sure it could be done in 4 as well. the treks are so nicely marked i really cannot understand why some hikers had a guide with them. anyone that likes […]

Torres del Paine

July 22, 2015

i’ve been obsessed with Torres del Paine ever since childhood when i read “Toate panzele sus!” (sails up) with Speranta crew’s(Hope’s) adventures around the Tierra del Fuego, the name was just inspiring. some years later when i’ve seen a sunset picture of the cuernos i knew i will end up there sooner or later, even […]

Fitzroy and Cerro Torre

July 20, 2015

time to say goodbye to El CHalten, the nicest mountain village i’ve ever seen, yes a swiss said that, 2nd class swiss as some say 🙂 on the way out still clouds, what else, but at least this time the view was far better than few days ago. Coming back to El Chalten and drop […]

Laguna Los Tres

July 18, 2015

the trail from El Chalten to Laguna Los Tres is the most popular hike in the region. the hike is pretty decent, 5 hrs each way with a total altitude difference of just little over 1’000m through an amazing landscape…that’s how is advertised, when you have to do the hike in pouring rain that even […]

Perito Moreno and Los Glaciares National Park

July 8, 2015

home to 47 big glaciers and 200 small ones Los Glaciares National Park is a must see in Argentina. we took a ferry ride, full day to see some of the biggest glaciers and what a sight that is. The size of these glaciers puts the european ones i’ve seen to utter shame. the most […]

El Chalten

July 1, 2015

the home of the Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre hikes, El Chalten lays few hours away from El Calafate. along the route you get to see the Fitz Roy closer and closer driving the last kilometres in a agonising slow speed, believing after each next curve the famous view will lay ahead. the weather hasn’t […]

Mythen (grosse und kleine)

June 6, 2015

last weekend was the first hike of the season and when reached this place i thought it would make a nice picture, luckily the farmer was kind enough to let us camp on his ground. It was a rough night with a…hmm…best described as dry storm, now we know the tent can take heavy winds

Matterhorn at dawn

August 1, 2011

this is the first attempt at capturing stars-trail over matterhorn, i only got these two pictures then the clouds rose…waited and waited…to realize the best view would’ve been from the hotel window not down there in the cloud watching the dew freezing on camera…i’ll go again in 3 weeks time, the moon will be at […]

Bachalpsee (long time obsession)

June 13, 2011

this sunday we’ve been hiking along the Schynige Platte, one of the nicest hikes in Switzerland, being rewarded at the end of it with this magnificant lake. I am waiting for almost 3 years to photograph this lake during the night with stars trails and reflection of the mountains on the water…but is not easy […]

Isle of Arran

summer night dream

August 30, 2010

my favorite picture and the last from the Provence trip. Many thanks to Vlad who had the patience to wait for me, even if it was almost 1am and we had about 2 hrs to drive ahead of us! I am always amazed by how much light a full moon provides, and the unexpected colors […]

welcoming France

July 26, 2010

last weekend i had a surprise visit from Oana and Vlad resulting in a surprising weekend in Provence, France. As soon as we crossed the border we had this amazing storm coming up, only if we’d been five minutes earlier…for unbelievers the only processing is split toning (warming up the sky) and a bit of […]
