Blue City
Blue City
United States
The blue hour in the city that never sleeps. Not far away and so near, away from the hustle and bustle of it's busy streets. This is the place...
Venetian Morning
Venetian Morning
Italy
An early, cold morning, the city still fast asleep, the gondolas still moored from last night. These are the precious, tranquil moments, alone with the city and the cold light. 
Suwannee River
Suwannee River
United States
An overwhelming composition of green, gold and blue. Bathed in warm, sweet air, filled with the last rays of sunlight. Is there a better place?
Dead Forrest
Dead Forrest
United States
Acid smoke hissing out of fumaroles, bubbling hot springs and mud pots issuing sulfuric gases, trees that have died because the surface temperature has risen up to 100°C.
Schrammsteine
Schrammsteine
Germany

Five days of rain, mist and grey skies in an autumnal Swiss Saxony. A photographic nightmare. And then, one afternoon, the sun comes out, into a brief misty sunset. Now time is of essence.

Steyr

Austria - 04.10.2010
Water has moved this city from time immemorial. Route of transport for trade in iron, power source for the craftsmen who brought riches and prosperity to the city. An important city in medieval times it has preserved it's romantic center into modern times.
Venice
Venice
Italy - 24.04.2009
Arriving in Venice from the train station was like entering a palace through the servants entrance and that one should always travel across the ocean to the most improbable of cities.
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.
Weikersheim
Weikersheim
Germany - 19.10.2010

A rural residence of a minor dynasty of noblemen, who tried to create a representative residence in a forgotten part of the realm. For centuries neglected by it's owners today it's a master example of pure pre-baroque design.

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...   
Koblenz
