Paname, Paname.. Paris is a city I love. I usually can’t stand huge cities, with all their chaotic traffic, fast-paced life and lack of human warmth. I prefer smaller towns, where people actually smile at each other and where faces become familiar after a while. I prefer to walk everywhere than to jump in a car [...]
**Click on image for a bigger view** The Great Blasket Island is the main and biggest Island of the Blasket Isles facing the Kerry County in the South-West of Ireland. The island was inhabited in the past with about 150 people living in 30 basic cottages but has been abandoned since 1953 when the last [...]
Hidden deep inside the Jabal Shams mountains, surrounded by rocks and barely accessible by a winding dirt road, lies the tiny village of Balad Seet in the Sultanate of Oman. A popular destination for adventure seekers, Balad Seet reveals to the visitor the secret of the Omani people’s hard working nature, culture, tradition since many [...]
While driving towards the Rough River lake for a weekend, I managed to get this barn from the car window against the “Simpson Sky”. My girlfriend told me I captured what can easily represent Western Kentucky: Red old barns, vast green fields of corn, soya beans or tobacco, and blue skies with white puffy clouds [...]
Last weekend I took a break away from Internet and went relaxing at the Rough River Lake in Kentucky, USA. It’s a 51,000 acre man-made reservoir after a dam was built on the Rough River for flood control. We stayed in a beautiful cabin overlooking the lake, surrounded by nature. Main attractions here are chilling, [...]
A shot taken in the Sweihan area, near Al Ain in the United Arab Emirates. We very often used to go camping in the desert or by the sea during weekends when I used to live in the UAE. It was a nice way to escape the chaos of the city and have some time [...]
I know I haven’t been posting much. Jet-lag, holidays and helping for a wedding (no, not my wedding) took most of my free time so I haven’t been able to work on photos and post anything interesting. I also had a lot of other work to catch up with. I am enjoying my time in [...]
I’ve been extremely busy lately and had to catch up with a lot of work, which is the reason why I haven’t posted much. While you’re reading this, I’ll be already on my way to the US for a month to enjoy some good time in rural Kentucky :) I’ll update with more information as [...]
Just a little “postcard photo” in black and white of a fishing boat patiently waiting during low tide in Chumphon, Thailand. This is the spot where you take the ferry boat to head out to Koh Samui, our last destination during our bike tour with Beyond Boundaries Travel to rest and unwind. These fishing boats [...]
There are times when you notice a beautiful scene, raise the camera to your eye, compose, adjust the exposure and click. Then you go home, upload your shot on your computer and stare at it.. And you find it just ‘perfect’ the way it is. I took this shot in the Netherlands, on a beach [...]
A little cliché shot of windmills in the Netherlands. I spent some time shooting in Alkmaar, a nice little town with a very laid back atmosphere and canals and windmills all around, like many places in Holland. There was a huge storm coming while a few friends and I were walking around for some photos. I [...]
Well, not exactly from the clouds, but from an airplane window, above the clouds. I got this nice view of Krung Thep (the real name of Bangkok in Thai, short version) while flying from Koh Samui to Chiang Mai. I was on my way back home after a week of biking tour in the South [...]
A beautiful shot of the setting sun behind the mountains around Chiang Mai in Thailand.
A shot of the beautiful Wadi Nakhr, also known as the Grand Canyon of the Middle-East.
~~oOo~~ The pilgrim walks and walks knowing that the goal is never clear nor important, but the journey is endless and enlightening. Many of these pilgrims (now good friends) that I have come across keep on walking, again and again, either physically or spiritually. Many don’t always know where they are heading in life, but [...]
~~oOo~~ If you’ve been following my website, you probably know by now that one of my favorite provinces in Spain is Galicia, located on the North-Western part, right above Portugal. Although it’s the most rainy region, I find it extremely beautiful with its mountains, forests and surprising Celtic culture. As I was walking on the [...]
~~oOo~~ Chiang Mai, like most of Thailand, has about 2 seasons: the Hot Season and the Rainy Season (although it gets chillier here in winter). The Rainy Season in Chiang Mai is from around June to October with August and September being the rainiest months. It brings respite from the heat and is a great [...]
~~oOo~~ Last year I went to visit China around the South coast. We spent a weekend together in Zhuhai, a prefecture-level city bordering Macau. Zhuhai is in the province of Guangdong, in the Pearl river delta. It is a popular touristic place for the Chinese and is often called the “Chinese Riviera“. We went walking on [...]
~~oOo~~ For my 30th birthday, I decided to visit two countries that always made me dream: Ireland and Iceland. No need to mention how awesome my trip was and how I fell in love with both countries. They are truly some of the most ‘magical’ places on this planet. During my stay, I think I’ve [...]
~~oOo~~ La Rioja is the home of Spanish Red Wine. A province and autonomous community of Northern Spain, La Rioja is crossed by the Camino de Santiago. The name comes from the river Oja that flows through the region (Rio Oja). La Rioja is also the second province with the smallest population in Spain. The [...]
~~oOo~~ Today is Valentine’s day. So how about a beautiful photo of a couple walking together in a park in Perigueux, along the Isle River in France. watched by the naked tall trees on the way? Hope everybody’s enjoying a special time with their partners. I know Valentine’s day is a commercial holiday but it’s [...]
Most photographers will tell you that the best time to take nice photos outdoors is during sunrise and sunset: The Golden Hour.
I know this is just a bubble shot but it’s not any kind of bubble!
It is captured a few milliseconds before it erupted into a tower of water and steam about 30 meters (~ 100 feet) up in the air.
