Spirit Island

I have struggled to get back with this image of one of the most famous views of the Canadian Rockies. This place is gorgeous but is relatively remote and not easily accessible if one wants to avoid the touristic 90-minutes scenic boat cruise. It requires hiking off the posted trails and the distance is well […]


Horseshoe Bend Sunrise by Jean-Christophe Pourbaix

Horseshoe Bend Sunrise by Jean-Christophe Pourbaix

  Please have a look to this stunning image by my colleague & friend Jean-Christophe Pourbaix. Jean-Christophe took that picture a few minutes after sunrise. I of course like the glow of the rising sun at the top of the image but I’m even more thrilled by the dark color of the water, the reflection […]


“You should go to the Canadian Rockies” …

I met professional photographer Jon Cornforth in Death Valley National Park last year during our spring break vacation in the Southwest. My family and I woke up very early that day. We drove about 40 minutes, hiked another 20 and casually met Jon at the top of the Mesquite Sand Dunes. We both were there, waiting […]

Our goal was experimenting the newly acquired equipment and capturing long exposures of the skyline at dusk. It was very windy and it has been a challenge […]


Joshua Tree – Death Valley

We have enjoyed the place for the diversity of its landscapes: sand dunes, canyons, badlands, saltgrass, mountain ranges, etc. We have even been fortunate enough to come accross an area covered with fresh-blown desert flowers resulting from unusal amounts of rain earlier […]


Hoodoos Glowing at Sunrise

  We woke up very early that morning to get to the rim of Bryce Amphitheater before sunrise. I started framing a very wide view of this majestic landscape. While the sun was rising up I was appealed by the nice glow on these hoodoos formations near the bottom of the amphi. I immediately zoomed […]


Antelope Canyon

Antelope Canyon is known for its beams of sunlight radiating down from openings in the top of the canyon. This image is not featuring any light beam but I like the glow and the tones, especially the purple reflections on the curved sandstone walls in the foreground. Slot canyons are challenging to photograph as they are […]
