From Belchen by Night

A great new years night walk to the Belchen, together with Alex Ziehe, table ten­nys buddy and fel­low pho­tog­ra­pher, offered us an exquis­ite round view. The light from the cities and vil­lages illu­mi­nat­ing the fog from below and the moon­light from above gave it’s magic touch to the land­scape.

Slow Walk in the Fog

Fog1Fog in Switzer­land can be received as depress­ing — or inspir­ing. To me, it is an incred­i­ble oppor­tu­nity to see dif­fer­ently. When the fog is mov­ing quickly, some­times a lit­tle win­dow opens for only a few sec­onds. Con­tinue read­ing

Lohengrin Revived

Sascha-Kramer-3Alt Bech­burg”, the 11th cen­tury cas­tle ruine above Holder­bank, was the ideal “back­drop” for the tal­ented young Swiss Tenor Sascha Kramer. We right away felt sur­rounded by Lohen­grin, Parzi­val, Tannhäuser and all the noble, brave and roman­tic medieval knights and singers. Con­tinue read­ing

Herbstmesse Basel

Herbstmesse5The “Herb­stmesse” (Autumn Mar­ket) in Basel is a col­or­ful event with tons of peo­ple and move­ment. Why not dive into it and lose con­trol. I went with the flow, enjoy­ing trmen­dously while tak­ing hun­dreds more or less ran­dom pics, hold­ing my cam­era in front of my belly. — And I’m also enjoy­ing the out­come tremen­dously. Los­ing con­trol as a pho­tog­ra­pher is phan­tas­tic! Try it! Con­tinue read­ing

Swiss Alps — An Autumn Trip

Larchs in Samnaun 1

Last week, it was the right time to go for a trip to the Swiss Alps. The weather for pho­tog­ra­phy was gor­geous. Lots of dra­matic light changes, fog and beau­ti­ful clouds, illu­mi­nat­ing the fall col­ors in incred­i­ble ways. Espe­cially the larchs (Lärchen) showed their most beau­ti­ful reds, oranges and yel­lows. Here some impres­sions of this trip for you to enjoy! Con­tinue read­ing
