Not night anymore, not day yet

Not night anymore, not day yet

I know! I posted a similar image not too long ago. But this one here with the moon in it – I find much better! (Nice to see progress, huh!?). I shot it this morning, in this in-between kind of light. Not night anymore, but also not daylight yet. I find this almost the best time of the day! Do you agree?


the fog is alive!

The fog is alive!

Did you know that fog is a living organ?

This morning I was sitting in thick fog, not able to see the next door neighbour (which is of course not a bad thing), but it was cold and dark and wet. But then, from one second to the next, the fog decided to climb down 20 meter and the result of that you can see in the picture!

So it turned out that the fog decided to play games with me all day. Up a little [me in the fog] – down a little [me in the sun] – up a little [me in the fog], down a little…
Guess that is a fun way to spend a Sunday! ;-)


Size matters!

Eiger, Mönch, Jungfrau

Mind you, the title referres to the people in the image, who do make look these mountains even more gigantic.

I read the other day one should always try to include people into a landscape image, in order to make the image more interesting.

“I do not agree.”

But in this case, I think, well, yes, there is that!

Again, if you can’t spot the people, click on the image to enlarge it.

“Size matters!”



Find the ibex!

Find the ibex

Did you find the ibex in the image?

(You might want to click on it to enlarge him…!)

It was one of these days… I went hiking, knowing it is going to be a very steep hike, so I only took my lightest lens (40 mm F2.8 panecake*) with me. Up up up all day long. Almost at the top of the mountain I encountered this fellow here!

“Hurray – an ibex!”

“But noooo, damn, I was looking all summer long to spot one – and now this, I only carry a 40 mm lens with me!”

So I took his portrait anyway. Does he not look like a tiny little mini ibex on this image? But trust me. In real, he was an impressive dude!

Do you know this problem, almost always bringing the wrong lens along with you?

Let’s talk about it!


* this lens is – apart from not ideal for capturing ibexs – a wonderful toy to play around with!

Not quite perfect

Sulsee, Switzerland

Even though the sunlight was rather harsh at this hot summer afternoon, I could not resist taking this image. The mirror is not quite perfect – but the light breeze that caused the ripples in this little mountain lake was very welcome anyway!

… and yes, we certainly removed all our hiking cloths and jumped in! :-)


Bern. The capital.

Bern. The capital.


Well, for a few months now I am driving every Saturday morning (!) to Bern, the capital of Switzerland, to attend classes in communications. Last Saturday (actually yesterday) I decided to take my camera with me.

So class starts at 9am (which means I get up at 5.56 am every S.a.t.u.r.d.a.y morning.)  <= please note and adore!

So when I hurried from the railway station in Bern to where my class is, I looked up from my coffee-to-go which I held in my hand. I realised that “the light was oh so wonderful”. So I quickly did a detour and hurried to a terrace (actually this is THE terrace in Bern, the terrace behind the Federal Palace.)

And it made me smile when I saw this scenery. The dark peaks (with backlight) in the foreground and the bright ones far away in the background.
