Achadas da Cruz, located on Madeiras west coast. Accessible by a steep cable car from a 450m high cliff.
Ponta de São Lourenço. Different spot on Madeira, another magnificient view. This time over the most eastern part.
Leftover from vacation. Awesome waves. Did you know that swim tubes are an adequate surf board replacement? I mean… in lack of a surf board. Even as an adult… 🤷🏼♂️😅🤙🏽
That disgusting moment when surfacing through a cloud of jellyfishes. But I needed fresh air.
The queen (or captain, can‘t decide) watching for dolphins. Successfully!
Approx. 10.000 years ago, lava from an Etna eruption cooled down rapidly when hitting the water of the Alcantara river. The result are prismatic basalts, violently twisted and broken. Gole dell’Alcantara is an awesome place to spend time while bathing in the cold river.
The bell of „Chiesa di S. Antonia“. St. Anthony’s church is a rock chapell, built into the cliffs of Capo Milazzo.
This picture is pretty much similar to the previous one and it is not this kind of photographs I usually do. But sometimes you have to look over the fence and try other things. This is a panorama shot taken at the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles. I made 7 pictures with a Tamron 11-18mm lens at 18mm and stitched them afterwards.
You can see the whole Los Angeles Basin from Downtown L.A. on the left till Century City and Santa Monica behind on the right as well as the Pacific Ocean. Also note the Hollywood sign on the far right. A city of an unbelievable size (and I thought Mexico City was big).
I did these photographs a few weeks after Apple has released iOS 6 which brought a panorama function to the iPhone 4S and newer and even it was a few weeks out, you could here this remarkable “beep” of the iPhone’s panorama function everywhere around the observatory. Other phones have a similar function, but when I was there it seemed like everyone was using an iPhone.
So what did I do? I just took the iPhone as well and made panorama photo by using the new function. If you want to see the comparision between a panorama of 7 raw shots where an iMac Core Duo needed several minutes to stitch it and a panorama, taken on a mobile device and ready to use immediately after releasing the shutter – then click here…
