Last Day On The Beach

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (55mm, f/9, 1/850 sec, ISO200) The last day on the beach always feels sad. Simply because I know that it will take some time until I will stand on a beach again. I’m from Austria. It’s a beautiful place and we got almost...

Lunch With a View

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (23.3mm, f/9, 1/800 sec, ISO200) Morro Bay one more time. I think I forgot to include the iconic 550 feet high rock that makes Morro Bay so special. But from my former blog post you know that it’s not just the rock or...

Sea Otters, Pelicans, Young Lovers

SONY ILCE-6000 (57mm, f/9, 1/250 sec, ISO100) And a massive power plant. That’s Morro Bay. But worry not, the power plant is out of operation now. This is a place that I passed a couple of times on my way down to Los Angeles and...

Under The Boardwalk

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (10mm, f/10, 1/320 sec, ISO200) I love the beach and I love wooden boardwalks so Pismo Beach seems to be the perfect spot for me. Especially when the sun is about to set you get those beautiful shadows from the boardwalk. I put...

Back To The Beach

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (18mm, f/7.1, 1/340 sec, ISO200) June 2016 was crazy hot especially in the South West of the USA. Because of the heat we changed our trip and we ended up at the beach again much earlier that we have planned. Carpinteria, a small town South...

Palm Springs Museum

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (16mm, f/2.8, 1/80 sec, ISO1000) Another visit to the Palm Springs museum. A place we both love not only for its exhibits but mostly for its architecture. An amazing place. All images are taken with one lens: the Fuji XF 16/1.4 WR. FUJIFILM...

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...
