The Breath Of Fresh Air

After having spent many weeks in the hospital it is such a relief to see the sky and breath fresh air.

Crouching Tiger Hidden Future

Every time I see one of these marvelous cats - on images or in the zoo - I cannot help to feel very saddened about their plight in the wild. I consider myself so fortunate and privileged to have experienced wild tigers up close. Save the Tiger!

Another preview off my upcoming e-Book "Life Between Sand And Sea", a parched river bed along the Skeleton Coast of Namibia.

Wrecked Resting Place

I am working on an e-Book about Namibia's Skeleton Coast with the title "Between Sand And Sea". The layout and image selection is done and I am 2/3 in writing it - so hopefully it will be finished soon.

Allow me to share a sneak preview.

The history of the Skeleton Coast is full of tales about trechereous waters and abandonded victims. Some of them true, some of them colorful sailor’s yarn.

There is unquestionable proof for past tragedies in form of pictoresque shipwrecks which have accumulated along the coast these last centuries. They stand in stark contrast to the surrounding landscape and lend an air of adventure and mystery to the area.

Nature has a way of reclaiming back what was stolen from her. These cape cormorants take advantage of the otherwise almost non-existing possibility to perge and nest up high along the coast.

The bright sunlight and fast shutter speed, to freeze the bird in midair, make this almost a black and white photograph. I was lucky as the scene combines essential elements within one image which make the Skeleton Coast so unique.

Forest Ghost

Fall is upon us
dark silhouettes move silently
on a carpet of leaves
thru growing silence
in the forest.
