Low Tide at the Playa de las Catedrales

This month's image was taken in Northern Spain at the Playa de las Catedrales (in Galician: "Praia das Catedrais"), one of the most spectacular beaches we have ever been - unfortunately not nearly as secluded and lonesome as those on the [...]

Northern Lights Dancing

Northern Lights dancing in the sky - Lake Myvatn, Iceland

We just returned from Iceland and brought home quite a lot of new images. During 6 nights (out of 15) we saw some green aurora arcs and colorful lights dancing all across the arctic skies. And during the days we were either sleeping or shooting the beautiful fall foliage. [...]

Sunset at Second Beach at the Olympic Coast

Second Beach at the Olympic Coast

We took this sunset picture 4 years ago in June 2012 at Second Beach, a rather small sandy bay with a couple of sea stacks and a natural arch. Albeit its rather lousy name, it is definitely one of those very special places that makes a photographer's [...]

Checkered Lilies

While Steffen and I are still working on all the new images from our latest trip to the United States in February/March, we also paid a visit to the checkered lilies that grow on a meadow right here at our hometown Dresden.
