Hiking tour La Isleta



Some shots from my hiking tour north of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (La Isleta). It was an overcast day but I liked the atmosphere and took a couple of pictures.

A nice view over the city of Las Palmas.

A solitaire withstands the continuous waves from the Atlantic Ocean. There is a some difference between low and high tide here. The locals are using this spot for surfing.

Capo Testa, Sardegna, Italy


, , , ,

When I travel to Sardegra for motorbiking  I usually visit Capo Testa to take a couple of pictures.  It is a beautiful bizarre place where wind and rain has formed the rocks. If I’m lucky the sky has nice clouds and the air is clear.

The lighthouse

Last time I took a tripod with me to take series of pictures to give HDR a try. I’ve used it modest to keep the pictures realistic.

Here are my first attempts.

This landscape looks also beautiful in black&white.

Deep holes are drilled into the rocks.

Some of the rocks looking like animals. I see a falcon watching here …

Sydney at night

During my 10 days visit in Sydney, Australia I took my camera and a little tripod out at night.

I could not resist to take even this one which is probably one of the most photographed view of Sydney.

A lot of nice restaurants are placed around the ferry boarding

This one you should not miss: the famous “Cafe de Wheels” where you can have a pie with mash and gravy. It is located at the waterfront of the Woolloomooloo Bay.

Venice, Italy


, ,

I’m currently planning my next trip to Venice. Good time to have a look at the pictures from the last visit.


I like this nice reflections and having the multiple layers in one image.

Even if Venice is a very crowded you can find a silent place for drawing.


Some people have no aversion against the flying rats (pigeons) as I have
