Cyclops Arch at the Alabama Hills


This month's image was taken three years ago. It shows Cyclops Arch, one of the largest natural arches at the Alabama Hills right at the foothills of the Sierra Nevada.
We stayed at Lone Pine that night and we wondered why Santa Claus forgot to fill our [...]

El Bufadero de la Garita on Gran Canaria

The ocean's heartbeat

There is one place at Gran Canaria where you can feel the ocean's heartbeat: El Bufadero on the coast at the town of La Garita. It consists of two large bowls carved out of the basalt shoreline which are regularly filled by the waves rolling in from underneath [...]

From behind the water curtain

We took this image last year in early October. It shows Kvernufoss, the "little brother" of nearby Skógafoss. Kvernufoss is a stunning waterfall dropping 30 m into a narrow canyon. Its main attraction is the path running into a deep alcove behind [...]

Mount Maelifell

A place from another world

Green Oasis at Maelifellsandur

Sunset at a Green Oasis on Maelifellsandur

Lupines in Iceland

Purple Lupines Fields at Vatnajökull National Park

A magic fairy must have woken me up in the middle of the night on June 30th, 2021. Steffen and I were not really happy when we got ready to bed at the "Potato Storage" (isn't it a funny name for a really cozy room!? ;-) ). We had been scouting the dense lupine fields in full bloom near a [...]

Puffins couple in Iceland

Happily ever after

They are the cutest little birds in Iceland. Each year during springtime, the Atlantic Puffins return to their nesting grounds along the coastline in search of their same old burrows. And after continuously tapping their bills together for a while and reinforcing their bond, the couples start raising a new [...]

Dresden Sykline at Night

City skyline towers of Dresden

It's been pretty much exactly ten years now that we took this image from our hometown. Instead of the usual classic city skyline view from the bridge (Carolabrücke) which crosses the river Elbe, we aimed for a rather seldom-seen perspective far away from any tourist attractions. [...]

Wildflowers in the US Southwest

Missing the US Southwest...

During the past 25 years there has never been such a long break between two US trips. It was in the late 1990s when Steffen and I started visiting the US, first separately and then as a couple from 2006 onwards. In most years we were there twice, but sometimes up to 3 times. [...]

Dyrholaey Arch at sunrise in Iceland


We just updated our "New Work Gallery" with 50 images from our last trip to Iceland in September/October 2020. We felt extremely lucky being able to travel during pandemic times (this island is the perfect place for social [...]
