Cerro Tinajita

Cerro Tinajita

Two weeks ago, I went for a hike with new friends to see that really nice site. Cerro Tinajita de San Ramón. In raining season usually it’s cloudy up in this mountains. But that didn’t even impact the experience in a negative way. The clouds evoked a magic mood and thereby spawned this dreamy scenery

The Bakery

The Bakery

I had the chance to portrait a German bakery in Costa Rica. Around here good bread is seldom if you are used to german bread quality standard, but sometimes you are lucky to catch a nice piece of bread even down here in Central America. The work I did for them, which even includes a

Cerro Pelado

Hiking Cerro Pelado was definitely one of the nicest hikes so far I did in Costa Rica. Compared to trips like Cerro Chirripó, that one is quite easy to achieve. That’s good since it’s easier to concentrate on photography. We started around 3.30 AM to catch some stars and later be there on the top

La Palmera

Palmera Punta Uva

This series is dedicated to my favourite palm tree on my favourite beach. It did not follow a strict concept, rather was I trying to play around with different perspectives and exposure times to visualize that feeling of deep relaxation (or let’s say ‘meditation’) one has, observing the slight movements of plants and ocean, cleaning up the

Hiking Cruz de Alajuelita in dry season

Cruz de Alajuelita in Dry Season

After hiking Cruz de Alajuelita in rainy season I was quite curious to return there during dry season. In fact that up there at 2000 meters above sea level there is never really a “dry season”. The climate at this altitude is all year around kind of wet and green. Anyway one does not need

Atitlan

On my trip through Guatemala, of course I couldn’t miss out idyllic lake Atitlan. I used my visit to experiment with a ND1000 Filter and did some long exposures of the lake around noon.

Alex

The “Fernsehturm” of Berlin – occassionally called “Alex Tower” – is Germany’s highest building and one of the highest in Europe. Because of its height, you obviously see it almost from many spots in the city. I took a day, to catch it from different perspectives and light situations.

Cruz de Alajuelita in Rainy Season

Why I love rainy season in Costa Rica? Definitely not, when I have to go to the center of San José in the afternoon, to organize something and suddenly it starts to “rain cats and dogs”, as they say here. But indeed it can have its sugar candy sides. For example when you start early

Time’s square

Times Square

Right after leaving “The Rock”, where I took some Sunset shots of the Big Apple, I went ahead to the famous Times Square. I remember, in University we saw a documentary about Adorno and Horkheimer’s Dialectic of Enlightenment and about their exile in the United States. They were also talking about their cultural shock, when

Big Apple Sunset

Big Apple Sunset

During my visit in New York City, I went up the Rockefeller Center to gain some shots of the Big Apple from above. During sunset the light was changing almost every time I fired the shutter of my camera. Besides the powerful scenery of the landscape it’s even spectacular to take a closer look at the
