Snow at Sedona Red Rock Wilderness

Early morning at the Red Rock Wilderness in Sedona

For us this is one of the most magic contrasts in nature: fresh white snow partly covering the red rocks in the American Southwest. The town of Sedona and its surrounding Red Rocks Wilderness can turn incredibly beautiful during wintertime. But this [...]

Leaf-Peeping in Colorado

Colorful Colorado - enjoying the vibrant hues of autumn

We love to do "leaf-peeping" and we were really looking forward to this trip. It has been a decade now since our last trip to Colorado during fall season. But the Rocky Mountains are definitely one of the most scenic places during this time of the year. High and [...]

Alien Throne at the San Juan Badlands

Sky on fire after heavy rains

On our last photo trip, we did a lot of leaf-peeping in the Rocky Mountains, but we also spent some days in the Hanksville area, around Moab and in northern New Mexico. Steffen and I flew in from Frankfurt [...]

Geothermal Area in Iceland

Boiling mudpots at sunset

This month's image was taken three years ago in late August, just a couple of hours after we had landed at Keflavik International Airport. Iceland's geothermal areas are incredibly fascinating and rich in color. There are not many clear springs and geysers, but you will hear fumaroles and [...]

Lupines at Stokksnes

Blooming Lupines at Stokksnes

This month's image was taken last year by the end of June. As you may notice, the lupine flowers were not in their full peak by then yet. Unusual cool weather in spring have resulted in a somewhat delayed bloom along Iceland's south and east coast. The lupines here at Stokksnes as well as the ones at [...]

Sunset at Alstrom Point

Sunset at Alstrom Point 

This month's image was taken in spring 2019. Due to an ongoing extreme drought the water level of Lake Powell was already low by then. But things changed for the worse. Currently in May 2022, there would be hardly any water visible anymore in this type of image taken at Alstrom Point. Most marinas and [...]

Northern Lights Corona


Whenever the Aurora Borealis lights up the night and starts dancing across the sky, it is not easy to stay focused on photography. It gets even worse as soon as the green bow moves towards the "highest point" on the celestial sphere and then - all of a sudden - bursts. You really feel immobilized seeing [...]
