The ripe grapes of autumn, waiting to be picked, sweet, soft and full of sun. Shot at castle Villandry, France.

View over the bay, a sea of golden yellow, shortly before sunset. We have been warned, being out on the streets after dark in Salvador, Brazil.
Flow of Light
Flow of Light
United States
Underground, in the canyon washed out by millions of years. The sunlight paints patterns on the walls, and the rest of the world seems very far away.
Wakulla Springs
Wakulla Springs
United States
Crystal clear water, trees overgrown with moss, a symphony of of green and blue. A paradise for the fish, birds and manatees that live here, and place of tranquility and eternal beauty.
Sea of Yellow

Germany
Just a field full of yellow canola flowers, soon to be scythed and fed to farm animals. But in this moment, in their bloom, they are beautiful. 
Lego City
Lego City
Germany - 06.08.2002
A very special, very dear place - Lego City, the place where all the little Legomen and women live and where the Lego bricks are manufactured. I'd wish I could live there :-)
Venice
Venice
Italy - 24.04.2009

Pergamon-Museum
Pergamon-Museum
Germany - 22.01.2012
The Pergamon Museum is the star of Berlin's Museum Island. The Pergamon houses original-sized, reconstructed monumental buildings excavated in Babylon, Uruk, Assur, Miletus, Priene and Egypt by German archeologists in the late 19th century and transported to Berlin. The museum is named after the Great Altar of Pergamon, a massive stone podium about one hundred feet long and thirty-five feet high, that has been rebuilt in the main hall and can be entered by the visitors. Until September 2012 the museum also hosts the fantastic Asisi panorama of Pergamon, and the hall of statues has been (finally!) dramatically refurbished too - it's definitively worth a visit...
Berlin
Berlin
Germany - 09.11.2008
A regular city gate, one out of 18 surrounding the city, turned into a main national symbol of Berlin and Germany. Somehow it was always in the center of events, saw revolutions, demonstrations, war, separation and reunion, it wore the red flag, saw presidents and parties.
Mondsee
Mondsee
Germany - 02.02.2012
Mondsee, Austria. A freezing early morning with minus 10 degrees, snapping with sharp teeth at all body parts not wrapped in layers of clothes.  
Schloss Brühl
Schloss Brühl
Germany - 13.02.2011
A monument of overwhelming beauty and pomp, built on debt and rarely used by it's owner; a last rococo statement before time overturned the old order of things...
