Pure Magic at Zabriskie Point

FUJIFILM X-T1 (55mm, f/3.5, 1/210 sec, ISO200) I love sunsets and I have experienced thousands. I also love sunrises but I have experienced far less especially in June. Of course it’s easy to see why and also why I had to see this one. After a very...

Too Hot to Walk

SONY ILCE-6000 (23mm, f/8, 1/125 sec, ISO100) I think the images of that blog post are not in the correct chronological order. I guess I missed to check the time, date setting on my cameras before the trip. That’s only one of the things you...

500 – Got My Mojo Working

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (23mm, f/4, 1/1250 sec, ISO200) Blog post 500! I started this blog about five years ago. My major inspiration was the Fuji X100. Now my main camera is the Fuji X Pro-2. Seems that very little has changed. But that’s not true. I...

Early in The Morning

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (26.5mm, f/8, 1/45 sec, ISO200) Okay I know. This is blogpost number six from Lone Pine. Definitely the last until we go there again of course. And we will come here again for sure. It is a wonderful location. I took this from...

All It Takes

FUJIFILM X-T1 (81.9mm, f/8, 1/100 sec, ISO200) Just one more blogpost from Long Pine. In case you how missed the others. There are four more posts dealing with this little town. On the first I have posted some images from exactly the same spot just...

Take a Ride on the Wild Side

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (18mm, f/9, 1/750 sec, ISO200) This is the third blog post covering one late afternoon in Lone Pine just in case you ask yourself if Lone Pine is worth a visit. This is such a fantastic place and it’s easy to see why...

Take the Slow Road

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (18mm, f/5.6, 1/40 sec, ISO200) The single most important thing that I have learned in almost 30 years of traveling. If you want to see more you have to travel slow. We are used to rush. Most of us hurry through breakfast to...

California Girls

FUJIFILM X-T1 (46.3mm, f/8, 1/600 sec, ISO200) California is about beaches. This is one our favourite. Carpinteria State Beach, about 10 miles east of Santa Barbara. Less fancy and busy than Santa Barbara. In one word: prefect. During our visit visit in the USA we...

In The Dutch Mountains

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (121.8mm, f/8, 1/850 sec, ISO200) You are right. That’s not the Netherlands. Regarding landscape it is the exact opposite. A long time ago I read a book by Cees Nooteboom. The title of its english translation: In the Dutch Mountains. It’s also a...

Drive South

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (63.8mm, f/9, 1/450 sec, ISO200) From Monterrey to San Simeon. Direction South on Highway number 1. Leave the clouds behind. This is a fantastic stretch of road! US highways as we know them from our trips in the South West are long, lonely roads that are...
