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.

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?
Schrammsteine
Schrammsteine

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.

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

View from the feet of Cristo Redentor, over the bay to Sugar Loaf Mountain. A panorama that never stops to reveal more details.
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...
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 :-)
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.

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.
Koblenz
Koblenz
Germany - 26.06.2011
Koblenz, situated on both banks of the Rhine at its confluence with the Moselle. One of Germany's oldest cities, established by Drusus about 8 BC, it's a bustling lively city of more than 100.000 inhabitants and UNESCO world heritage.
