Good day dear reader, thank you for being here, for coming back and following my blog. How are you today?
I feel humbled by the beautiful feedback and comments I am getting. Thank you so much! Since I also receive so wonderful words about my photography, I thought to take you behind the camera. Maybe it is a cliché, but for me it is true: I am rarely in front of the camera, and I do prefer to be behind it.
Sometimes, though, my husband succeeds in taking a shot whilst I am taking pictures or I took one where I also appear. From time to time, I even ask for it being taken, because it needed to be on camera :0).
Small things and flowers are definitely something I am drawn to. This then may look like this:
In the middle of flowers after rain on Lanzarote
In the Australian Outback
Taking macro shots in the Swiss Alps
My camera is as often in my hands as possible. The first two of the following pictures are from a few years back when I was still using a Minolta taking pictures on film. Can you believe it? The last one is with my today’s baby, the DSLR Nikon.
Finding the best spot to get a picture of this scenery in Australia
Often I go down low…
And even more so, I go up…
Some fun ones. Kangaroos came so close where we pitched tent in the Kosciuszko National Park in Australia that we needed proof of the happening ;0). And while preparing a cup of coffee after climbing Big Daddy in Sossuslvei/Namibia, the idea with the kettle came to my mind.
Sometimes no zoom is needed
Preparing a cuppa coffee. Why not taking a photograph as well.
Shadows are a very easy way to have me in the picture. If it is along the ocean, it is even better of course, because it means sandy feet!
Sandy feet! My favourite
I get to relax, too. Many of my photos I take while travelling, driving long distances on huge continents, hiking up mountains and/or spending time in hot climates.

Seeing you like this makes me really happy… in action, in the middle of nature, fully embracing your true self, leaning in, exploring all perspectives and making the most of them, behind the camera and at the same time being one with it… that’s why your beautiful photographs breathe your unique spirit.
Thank so much for sharing your adventures and these personal peeks behind your camera.
