Curious gentoo penguins on iceberg ready to jump into the icy antarctic ocean water. Antarctica.
Several thousands of Emperor Penguin breeding in large colony, South Georgia Island.
Earlier this year I made a 12 day trip though the United Arab Emirates.. and… guess what? YES :-), i had my camera with me..- you can see some places i visited there in the wild, wild middle east…the UAE & Dubai are really surreal places – worth a visit!
I am sure there will be much, much more tourism in the next years, as the whole emirates are a kind of “building-up a miniature world in the desert” – so in between bentleys, rolexes, jackob & co. watches, vertu cell phones, prada, cartier, gucci, dsquared & fashion colleagues, i prefered visiting the ‘nature areas’ of the united arab emirates, as i didn`t want to make holidays in “NY 5th Avenue II” or “Zuerich Bahnhof-Strasse”, whatever… i looked for tranquility and relaxation, and yes again, you can find it there. (but: you need to rent a car!) ((no, a ‘hummer’ jeep is NOT essential!)). Here you see some of the shots i uploaded in 2007 from this trip:

Until the end of february 2007 i was for 3.5 weeks on a russian icebreaker vessel driving from the tip of argentina (ushuaia) through the falklands, south georgia, south shetland islands and the antarctic peninsula. Now some months later now, I`m still thinking and sometimes dreaming (or daydreaming) about the beauty of nature I saw there. Everytime i’m processing some of the photos I took it`s a kind of jump back into this experience.
silence is sexy. yes it is.
Here is an overview of the shots from Antarctica I finishes the last 6 months. I’m far away from being through all the shots from this trip, so there will come more shots from there in the near future.
