Nothern Territory Australia. I arrived in Darwin without any plans what to do the next few days. Luckily a the next day there was starting a 3 day tour into the Kakadu Nationalpark. Sometimes you have just to embrace life and let things happen.

Flamingo in the Sahara Tunisia. Found this little bugger at an oasis. In the background you can see some dunes.

Into the dunes of the Sahara. With this backlight shot i will show you, why its important to bring sunglasses to the desert :-) I took this picture in the afternoon after we reached our spot for camping. The first thing you do after arriving at the camping spot, you unsaddle the camels. Then you set up your tent or spend the night outdoors like I do. It was not to cold like 5 degrees Celsius at night. But still cold enough not to let the spiders crawl into your mouth while sleeping ;-)

Dunes in the Sahara. You can hike barefoot in the morning for the first hour. Then the sand is getting really hot. I recommend hiking sandals. The thing with hiking boots is, you get a lot of sand in your boots and you are sweating a lot and its a lot easier to walk on sand with sandals. You won´t sink so deep into the sand as you do with boots.

Sunset in the Sahara. Here i want to give an example on how the wind is forming the structures in the sand. I promise, i did not raise the saturation in this picture :-)

Hiking in the Sahara in Tunisia, so no shower, no bed and no freezer. But its really fun to be out in the wilderness and at a special place like this.

India 2012. I had a nice time back in the days in 2012 in India. I did a 18 days trip in India and visiting places like this one, a mausoleum with really beautiful buildings. As you see, even with old cameras you can make good picures :-). I shot this picrure with the EOS 5 D Mark I, but i still use the 17-40 lens today.

Gloriette Vienna - Dont shoot only with sunshine. You may miss some dramatic situations like this one. I took this picture at the top of the hill at castle Schönbrunn. The gloriette was used for dining and ballroom as well as a breakfast room. Nowadays there is a cafe inside.
