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...

Gold

FUJIFILM X-T1 (104.9mm, f/7.1, 1/80 sec, ISO200) Gold! Mountains of gold! It’s hard to describe what’s so special about the desert but two things stand out for me. The silence and the colours at early morning or late evening. What can look boring or even...

Beyond The Sea(level)

FUJIFILM X-T1 (128mm, f/10, 1/160 sec, ISO200) Of course every visit to Death Valley is incomplete without the bad water basin. The deepest point in the USA. In my trips in the USA I broke my record for the highest and lowest elevation. And that...

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...

Back Where We Belong

SONY ILCE-6000 (18mm, f/9, 1/200 sec, ISO100) We all belong somewhere. Usually it’s the place where we are born. But strangely there are also far away places that gives us this feeling. The South West of the USA, or more specifically the deserts of the...
