I cannot resist a nice afternoon: It is something I can easily see coming …quite unlike a nice morning!
Maybe sunrises have great light too… but there is less guesswork with sunsets in my cloudy tropical country. Continue reading Looking up, and to the sides too!
Happy New Year! I am happy I have met you over the Blogosphere. I leave you with this view from my hometown. All the best for 2016!

I admit it: I have periodic episodes of lens testing mania. This time it was the bokeh stuff. As we all know, lens testing is a disease that can develop into the dreaded Gear Acquisition Syndrome… Continue reading Pixel peeping or photo shooting?
Yesterday I decided I had to go hiking after a fairly intensive working week. Of course for a photographer hiking means “shooting outdoors with half a mile walk between shots” Continue reading A lesson from the field… well, two actually
If you have read my post “DX vs FX cameras: Don’t switch, keep both!” you will know I really enjoy carrying two cameras: a DX body with a 70-300 mm lens and am FX body with a 18-35 mm.
