2020-06-15 THE FLAIR OF THE FRENCH ALLEYS

Some bars, restaurants, dim lightning, the old alleys of French cities like here in Bordeaux have a unique flair. Hopping between the pubs and letting all have a good time. I shot this photo at my first half roundtrip through France, starting in Nantes and ending in Nice.

2020-06-14 ENTRY TO THE WINE GARDENS OF THE MEDOC

The photo shows the flat landscape of the Medoc, the large area where the Bordeaux wine grows. It is fascinating to see the endless grapevines perfectly aligned. Chalets, wine gardens, streets, that’s the Medoc. If you are there, don’t forget to attend a wine tasting.

2020-04-26  CHURCH IN FRANCE

I think it was in Toulouse, where I could shoot photos inside of that marvelous church. In churches, you have to prepare the right settings for your photography, that the highlights don’t get too blown out, compared to the darker walls.

2020-04-09  FRENCH FARMHOUSE

On the way to Mont Sainte-Victoire, we stopped searching for a parking space. I wanted to have a look at the mountain as Paul Cezanne did. We found a parking lot near some farmhouses, which became a French expressionist photo.

2020-04-04  PALACE IN AVIGNON

Take the visitor tour in the Palais des Papes; you will get a tablet with a navigation screen and a computer game to make the experience digital. The impressive rooms and halls are one of a kind. I often think of the architects and workers who built these buildings with simpler construction equipment compared to today.

2020-03-31  TREES IN FRANCE

One of the photos from my Tour de France. The journey was from Nantes to Nice by rental car along the west coast. I have seen a dozen of cities and the rural landscape. In a few years, I would like to take a tour from Nice to Paris along the east coast.

2020-02-27  LIFE AT THE BEACH

My wife Karin and I had only one afternoon on the Atlantic coast in France. We took the extra drive of about three hours, but it was completely worth it. A broad and fine-grained sandy beach with the rushing waves of the Atlantic. Some surfers in the back, otherwise only the beach and the sea. Combined with a fresh wind, it was an afternoon to remember.

2020-02-08  ATLANTIC COAST IN FRANCE

The weather was too cold and windy to take a bath in the sea. The windsurfers were dressed in a wetsuit. So I used the whole afternoon for shooting photos. Then my wife Karin pressured me to take a break and sit down in a cafe. It offered fresh oysters, an excellent opportunity to try one. You get oysters very hard in Austria, so it was a welcome meal with the taste of the Atlantic.

2020-01-16  UNKNOWN PLACE IN FRANCE

With the rental car starting from Nantes and driving to Nice, my wife Karin and I passed so many villages and landscapes, that I cannot remember where I shot that photo. I like the picture. The color of the old hut combined with the tree and the blue sky, where the moon shines through, is a beautiful combination.

2019-12-11  SITTING IN THE GRASS

The unique promenade in Bordeaux. People who make themselves comfortable in the high grass. On the other side, the street dancers. A pleasant illumination of the bridges, paths, and bicycle lanes. A very relaxed nightlife in Bordeaux.
