A beautiful double rainbow, nice storm light and clouds featuring a little mountain stream and this green valley near Flesspass in Switzerland.
For those of you interested in some additional information behind the photo... we had not planned to end up there on the Flesspass surrounded by thunderstorms with only one hour until sunset on 2300m. At this point we were pretty lost and did not know where exactly we were going to. We started our eight hour hike in the early afternoon and planned to be back at the car before it gets dark. First everything went well. We hiked our way up to 2730m in time, enjoyed the spectacular view from Jöriflüelafurgga and had a copious picnic at one of the Jöri lakes. So far so good. We started our descent about five o'clock and planned to be back at the car at about seven. But then the first thunderstorm was coming in right over the peaks next to us. Dark fast moving clouds with rain and thunderbolts were rolling in. Scary. My girlfriend and I wanted to get down from the mountain as fast as possible and then it happended. We missed the right trail junction. At the point we realized that this had happend we could only go on down the current trail since we were surrounded by thunderstorms with lightning everywhere and only one hour until the sun sets and it gets dark. After approx. one hour of descent it startet to rain stronger but then we luckily met two italian women somewhere on the Flesspass who had a car at the end of the trail. They were kind enough to drive us back over another mountain pass road to our own car. My girlfriend and one of the Italian had to seat in the dog cage (with a huge dog in it of course) in the back of their old two-seat Range Rover. She was not that amused, but at the end of the day and after 1400 meter difference in altitude we were both happy to be back safely. _______________________________
i took this one '07 as i left my family and my friends back in germany to work in new york city, to live there on my own when i was 19. this photo should show that new york city is like a huge toy world where you can make (almost) everything possible or just to go there and have a great time like when you are 6 years old again and played with you toys. new york city is a toy, use it to make your dreams come true.
After spending a restful 4 days in Sedona, AZ, I decided to visit Monument Valley since it was only a few hours away. It had snowed the day before, so it would be a good photo opportunity. Monument Valley is a region of the Colorado Plateau characterized by a cluster of vast sandstone buttes, It is located on the Arizona-Utah state line (around 36°59′N 110°6′W), near the Four Corners area. The valley lies within the range of the Navajo Nation Reservation, and is accessible from U.S. Highway 163. East and West Mitten Buttes are two distinctive geological features found within Monument Valley in northeast Navajo County, Arizona.
This past weekend was spent exploring the Oregon Coast. This was our last stop on Sunday. The waterfall didn't have as much flow as I had hoped, so perhaps a return trip is in store at a wetter time of year.
The spectacular array of vibrant color caught my eye wherever I traveled up in north Washington state. I just happened to pick this particular Sunday to explore the area and I guess I hit it just perfectly!
A little slice of paradise. Rock falls in Havasu canyon in Arizona. I worked up some courage earlier that day and jumped off this into the white water below. Great memories! Natural occurring Lime in the water creates the beautiful turquoise hues.

The west coast of Lundy off the north coast of devon marks the point where the Bristol Channel Meets the Atlantic Ocean. There is a marked difference between the east coast and the west. This coastline is rough, rocky and weather exposed with inaccesible steep cliffs full of nesting seabirds. The east is gentle slopes, tidal coves, wildflowers and a lot less wind. This was photograhed in a constant buffeting wind, 2 exposures blended and masked together.
Although I was on Lundy for 4 days I only had one sunset and no sunrises due to the british weather.....
