This rock in Capitol Reef NP has been shaped over thousand of years. Once in an ocean and today in the desert, one can see the traces of time.
Grand Staircase Escalante in Utah is fascinating for every photographer. The rock formations ignite your phantasy and you start photographing. Enjoy!
I had the opportunity to photograph these hikers in the Great Sand Dunes national Park in Colorado. These sand dunes are incredibly high and fascinating. I was told that the sand is 140 degree Fahrenheit (60 degree Celsius) hot. Protective shoes are a must!
Spring in the High Sierra Nevada means melting snow and the beginning of plant growth. I photographed this small creek at about 9000 feet. Normally it is a very small creek but currently the water is just gushing down. The bushes in the front are just beginning to grow new leaves and the mountains in the background are still partially snow covered.
Photography is the first step of creating an image. Editing and converting a picture the second. Here I photographed the palm trees in Rahilly park in Merced. I walk in this park almost every day and usually I carry a camera with me. At home I work with my images. Here I converted my image into a watercolor painting. Enjoy!
“Kissing Cousins” is a rock formation close to Monterey, CA. Enjoy!
Each year in February the sun illuminates the Horsetail Fall in Yosemite National Park creating the impression of a “Fire Fall”. Of course many photographers are trying to capture the moment since Galen Rowell did so in 1973.
Since the clouds moved in in the afternoon I was just about ready to give up and drive home when suddenly the sun rays broke through the clouds. I was very happy capturing this image!
Yesterday my wife and I were hiking in Pinnacles National Park in Central California. The Park is relatively small and unknown but there are breathtaking vistas and interesting rocks. Enjoy the image!
We (Wolfgang, David and I) photographed early at the Merced Game Refuge. Our goal was to photograph spider webs at sunrise. Enjoy!
