British Columbia Blue Hour

This is a previously unpublished file photo I found while cleaning up the hard drive. It’s an image showing the beautiful coastline of the islands in British Columbia, Canada, during the Blue Hour on a summer evening in 2002. I think it’s an almost magical photo, especially the superb gradient from orange over light pink to dark blue. The clouds add detail and contrasting colors in the sky. At Photoshelter, you can download a high-resolution scan of the original slide.

I stumbled across that old album with the family photos, and I’d like to share these with you. Maybe you’re a photo collector and like the shots? Please contact me if you would like to have a high-end digital scan.

This photo is undated, but I’d estimate it to be from the 1920s, showing my grandmother in her youth. Shot by photographer Albert Giesler in Eutin, Germany. You can download a high-resolution scan from Photoshelter.

Flying at High Altitude

The wing of an airplane at high altitude

During one of my trips to the U.S. I had a seat in Lufthansa Business Class, allowing for this beautiful shot of the left wing of the aircraft at high altitude, probably above the Canadian East Coast. I love flying, I love long distance trips, so I love this shot. :-)
