2019-09-30 SAN DIEGO INTERCONTINENTAL

My wife was working in her early twenties at the Hotel Intercontinental Vienna. Therefore, there is an emotional connection to this hotel chain. We give it a try and stayed two nights in Intercontinental San Diego, a top hotel, a 5-star recommendation from my side. On a trip home, I could catch a night-time photo with the Google Pixel 3 XL smartphone. With the “Night-Sight” modus an easy task, to get decent pictures.

2019-09-29 UP ON THE MOUNTAINS

The last meters up, the way was surrounded by traipses, my daughter Cara was fit anyway, she likes spinning and going to the gym. A mountain walk is not that challenge for her. This plateau on the Rax was relatively easy to handle. Interesting to see some little snowfields on 2000 meters, though it was mid-summer.

2019-09-27 ENTRY OF THE MOSQUE IN ABU DHABI

The first stop in Abu Dhabi was the Sheikh Zayek Grande Mosque. I wanted to capture additional details of this magnificent building in photos. Here I stood in front of one of the beautiful entrance gates wherein the background the buildings in the courtyard merged into a harmonious whole.

2019-09-25 TREE ON BEACH IN LANGKAWI

I’m not the type to lie on the beach for long. That’s why I took the time to shoot photos in Langkawi. The beach is bordered by tropical trees, behind it is rainforest. On the spot lies the Andaman Sea, it spans up to Thailand.

2019-09-24 TOULOUSE CITY HALL

My wife Karin was standing in the line for ice cream. I used the time for photo shooting in Toulouse. I had the city hall in front of me and chose a wide-angle lens to capture the big building. As my wife came back with the ice cream, I had already finished my shootings. It was funny ice; the French icemen made patterns of hearts and flowers of the ice toppings, which made eating it even more enjoyable.

2019-09-23 CACTI IN CALIFORNIA

Better not to touch the spines of this cactus. The field is in the middle of the Joshua Tree National Park and called Colla Cactus Garden; any first aid is far away. I stayed with photographing these unique cacti. There were hundreds of these at that place, but only on that place, while driving around in the park, I never saw these cacti again. The area looks so surreal; I thought to be on a faraway planet, like in a science-fiction movie.

2019-09-22 MOUNTAIN HUT ON THE RAX

After a long march on the mountain plateau, we look forward to stopping in the mountain hut. There were hearty meals such as ploughman’s lunch and roast pork. For dessert we ordered a Germknödel, this is a fluffy yeast duff dumpling. A classic meal in the Austrian mountains.

2019-09-21 STATUES IN PRAGUE

I can not remember from which tower I took the telephoto picture. Here you can see the richness of detail and the artistic design of the holy figures and ornaments. From the road, you throw up usually only a short view and has no binoculars, not the opportunity to explore the entire relief.

2019-09-20 NOCTURNAL WALK IN COMO

Como represents the perfect Italian town. Walking around in the evening, seeing the many bars and restaurants, feeling a pleasant breeze and looking at many buildings to wonder.

2019-09-19 DON’T MISS THE PRAGUE CASTLE

Don’t miss Prague Castle in the night. I was on one of the towers, beneath the Charles Bridge. You have to conquer at least a dozen wooden steps to get to the top of the tower. There I placed my camera with a mini-tripod between the castle battlements. It was the right time to photograph the Prague Castle in full illumination.
