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...

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...

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...

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...

A Forest

FUJIFILM X-T1 (95mm, f/6.4, 1/180 sec, ISO200) And what a forest that is. Sequoia NP in California. It’s our fifth time in the West of the USA but the first time we managed to visit the place. And the reason is simple: If we start...

I miss the road

It has been a while since our last road trip. For the past few months we have been focused on creative seeing mostly in large cities around the world. However, this year we would like to do a few road trips as well. There is...
