Part 2 of the journey: Several old chateaux and churches. The area was very rich in former times, hence the big buildings.

During our session we stumbled upon an oldtimer race. Though we did not have much time, the old habour made a good background for these cars.

Training the eye in the woods
Woods are very difficult to take with the camera, since pictures will get messy and chaotic very easily. A few hours in the Niendorfer Gehege together with Marting is a good training. All images were taken in a radius of about 100 meters.

The third part of the photos of our trip to the artic, the wildlife. Polar bears, blue whales, seals and reindeers. Since they don't know us humans, they usually react nosy and curious.

France - Nice
Nice and it's surrounding areas. Most beautiful are the little mountain villages where time seems to be standing still.
