After our visit to the Pacific Coast of Colombia we flew up North to Santa Marta and from there made our way into the mountains.
When I was planning this part of the trip I had set one objective for myself: getting up to Cerro Kennedy one morning for sunrise. To be able to do this I had to find an a
It's been nearly twenty years since my first trip to the USA. Back then I visited Chicago for a few days, long before I started with photography. That's kind of a shame, because Chicago is such a photogenic place.
So, as work required me to travel to Detroit for 10 days last month, I instantly booke
Two weeks after my last photography and hiking trip into the Alps I shouldered my heavy backpack once more, this time to explore the Kleinwalsertal just across the border near Oberstdorf.
As I started my hike after four hours of driving in Mittelberg the sun was burning. There were some clouds, but
It's summer, which means it's finally time for some overnighters in the Alps again. When it's hot down in the valleys, it's just great to breathe some fresh mountain air while enjoying a spectacular view.
The only problem with such trips into the Alps for me is that I only have time at the weekend -
After years of using the Gopro Hero 4 Silver to record my Vlogs and travel videos, I finally made an upgrade. For a long time I was contemplating getting a mirrorless camera for vlogging, but eventually decided to stick with Gopro because of the ease of use and robustness of their cameras.
Vilcabamba is a little town within a mountainous area in the south of Ecuador. It lies at around 1500 meters above sea level and the surrounding mountains rise up to more than 2000 meters. Although I hadn‘t seen many photos of that area I was sure that I’d be able to find some nice viewpoints to pho
Time to continue the article series about my travels around the world back in 2016...
After nine days on the Galapagos islands we flew back to the ecuadorian mainland to continue our travels. In Guayaquil we had a short layover before taking a bus to Puerto Lopez.
A few months ago a heavy earthquake
In the final part of my Photographing Morocco series I show you Casablanca and Fes.
Casablanca was our first stop after Essaouira - just a layover on our way to Fes. And I have to be honest here: Casablanca is not the most beautiful city. For Moroccan standards it's a bit boring, without the charm w
After two wonderful days in the desert we continued our tour with Wild Morocco and drove through the vast Iriqui Lake, which could easily have been a setting for Mad Max Fury Road. Then we went past an impressive, jagged mountain range until after nearly two hours of off-road driving we went back in
With this article we take a little break from my world travel series. Last months I visited Morocco for 15 days and I just have to share some impressions and photos with you. For a long time it has been a dream of mine to visit and photograph the desert. While we travelled through Peru a few years a
In the center of the Galapagos archipelago, right below Baltra, lies Santa Cruz. This island is not as large as Isabela, but it’s much more crowded because most of the visitors to the Galapagos Islands start their trip here. For us it was already the third stop on our travel around the world.
The second part of our long time travel brought us to the Galapagos Islands, roughly 1000km west of Ecuador. From Quito it was a short two hours flight to Baltra, a little island north of Santa Cruz and right in the center of the archipelago.
We had only a short stop there, because on Baltra itself
