About me


I am passionate, if not fanatic, about the Namib Desert in Namibia. It stretches along the coast of Namibia and is frequented daily by fog coming in from the Atlantic ocean in the afternoons and rolling out again in the mornings mostly accompanied by strong winds. This results in the most extraordinary light effects and an almost supernatural glow and always changing horizontal highlights. A mountain can be almost black at one moment and then glowing white the next moment. This also goes for the sand dunes, we have almost scarlet dunes in the south, beige ones in the middle and almost white ones in the north and always the play of fog and light. To those in a hurry the Namib desert will appear grey and desolate but for the sensitive and patient viewer it will unfold itself into the most uplifting scenery ranging from sublime subtleties to dramatic colour highlights. A most rewarding subject for those that are prepared to wait !
I have just changed from my very beloved Nikon F100 to digital Nikon D 700. At this stage I do not work on my photographs with Photoshop or similar programmes and submit the photographs as they were taken.

    Cathy Yes, I am fully satisfied with the TAMRON 150-600, especially that in you there is good light, he slips a bit in the lack of light, I will switch to manual focus.
    In terms of quality, according to tests it is as good as the 80-400 you use.
    I recommend it without hesitation.

    Oui Cathy, je suis pleinement satisfait du TAMRON 150-600, surtout que chez toi il y a de bonnes lumières, il patine un peu dans le manque de lumière, je passe alors en mise au point manuelle.
    Au niveau de la qualité, selon les essais il est aussi bon que le 80-400 que tu utilises.
    Je le recommande sans hésiter.

    Liebe Cathy,
    bitte mach mit den experimentellen Fotos weiter. Ich bin nun für längere Zeit zu Hause. Hier steht reichlich Arbeit an. Vielleicht geht es im Februar nach Nepal, ich möchte im Juni noch einmal in die Arktis in Richtung Nordpol und dann hoffe ich, dass Namibia wieder im Programm ist.
