Rainy roses

Passed by these roses after it rained yesterday here in Neckarau. Taken with my iPhone.

November sunflower

This year must have been way too warm – I passed by a sunflower in full blossom today across the street from my apartment… Taken with my Fuji x100t

Halloween pumpkins

Walking through Manhattan last Saturday I saw a lot of pumpkins with nice carvings ready for Halloween – like these. Taken with my Fuji x100t.

Autumn leaves

Finally autumn has arrived (however, with quite summerly temperatures) – as these leaves taken in Berlin last week show. Taken with my D700 and Nikon 85mm 1.4.


During our last day in Copenhagen we passed by these sunflowers out in Værløse. Taken with my D700 and 50mm 1.8.


Rosendals Trädgård also has an area where visitors can pick their own flowers (which they then have to pay for of course). Taken with my D700 and 16mm 2.8.


Autumn is rapidly approaching – however, while in Stockholm, summer was still noticeable. This sunflower growing at Rosendals Trädgård is proof of that. Taken with my D700 and 16mm 2.8.

Cactus blossom

One of my cacti started to blossom last week. Using the natural light in the kitchen I decided to take some pictures of the flowers with my Tamron 90mm Macro lens and my D700.

Autumn pumpkin

Continuing last week’s autumn theme here is a picture of a pumpkin taken during my recent visit to Berlin. Taken with my D700 and 85mm 1.4.

Autumn apples

While in Berlin we had some organic apples grown in Natascha’s garden which besides being tasty were very photogenic. Taken with my D700 and 85mm 1.4.

Here are some pictures from a recent visit to the Botanical Garden in Copenhagen:

Cactus blossom and off-camera flash

My cactus decided to blossom which was a good opportunity to try different kinds of flash photography. All pictures are taken with a Nikon D70s, a Nikkor AF-S 18-70mm 3.5-4.5 G ED DX lens and a Vivitar 285hv off-camera flash. The first picture is taken with a diffuser (sto-fen omni-bounce): The second picture is taken…Continue reading Cactus blossom and off-camera flash
