A Short Trip To The North Sea

04 09 2014

...to pick up my daughter from horse riding camp.

I actually went the day before pick-up day to have a little extra time to photograph the enormous beach in Sankt Peter Ording.

I took my camera and two lenses, but the traffic jam up north was so bad that day, that I arrived really late just a bit before sunset.

I quickly headed to the beach and unpacked the camera... NO MEMORY CARD!!!  

Sigh...

Does this kind of stuff happen to you, too?

At least I had my phone with about 7%(!) remaining power so I managed to shoot a very few pictures and after the night some more.

I will show you those early morning pictures tomorrow.

Majorca - Calm Balearic Island

21 08 2014

The Balearic Islands are diverse. Beautiful mountain ranges, hidden coves, wide bays - sometimes with wild waves :-)

You can party all day but you can also find calm serene spots for meditation.

Especially in the early hours.

I took these pictures on my morning walk with an iPhone 5s.

Majorca - Wild Balearic Island

18 08 2014

Majorca - located in the Mediterranean Sea - is the largest island of the Balearic archipelago in Spain.

We have been there many times, because it's just a two hour flight from our home and the island is really beautiful for the largest parts.

In old times it was called "Island of Calm" but now many tourists come here. But if you avoid the touristic centers you can still find nice places.

This time we just wanted to swim and relax and stayed in Alcudia.

I was rarely online and just posted a bit on my Instagram.

Usually there are just some gentle waves in Alcudia in the afternoon but last week we had a day where it was windy and the ocean turned wild. 

Our kids - 11 and 14 years old - loved it! 

They are both good swimmers but we stayed close to the shore this afternoon so they could stand all the time.

The pictures were taken with a Nikon COOLPIX AW100.

Attention - it's going to be wet....

Whats Missing At The Moment?

09 06 2014

NOTHING!!! :-)

We had a long holiday weekend over here in Germany and today is still a free day for many.

But the best part: We have amazing weather right now with temperatures over 30 degree.

Even without a beach it feels very much like summer vacation.

We enjoy the deck in our new apartment - though it's not completely finished yet.

Once it will be all done i will you show you pictures of our outdoor space.

Meanwhile I hope you enjoy some photoblast from the past I shoot on Hawaii:

A quiet early morning from a vacation at Wailea Beach Maui...
