Hobie Beach, Rickenbacker Causeway, Miami, FL


This is my favorite tree on the beach. Unfortunately I am not ot only one that likes it, so it's difficult to get a shot without anyone else in the picture. The wide-angle lens really helped as I was almost leaning against it getting between everyone else and my tree. :-D


Please also have a look at the larger view on black.


Here are a few more shots featuring this tree: Vizcaya at Sunset and "You've Been Framed".

Running feels like Heaven


...and I say

We so down

But It's now or never baby

We don't mind

if this don't last forever

See the lights

But it won't last forever

Seize the time

'cos it's now or never baby



What do you think of it On Black?


Other than rotating and cropping (and sig), there was NO post processing of any kind done to this shot.


This is a single exposure.

Shot from Rickenbacker Cswy, Miami, FL


After the sunset colors all but vanished I climbed down the rocks that bordered the sea wall to get some of the rocks in the foreground. I didn't get too far as the ground was super soft, no surprise there really considering that at high(er) tide the whole area is under water.


Sitting at a super exciting workshop in Coral Gables right now... that's how far I am allowed to travel job wise... ha, ha. For people who don't know that's about 8 miiles south of where I work and 22 miles from where Iive. I am so thrilled... :-D

The light is beginning to disappear as Norfolk Southern intermodal train number 234 departs the Rickenbacker Intermodal Facility and crosses over to track one.

Here's another shot from the archives. I did go out shooting yesterday, from sunrise to sunset, but had no time yet to even download the pictures let alone process anything.

Well no strong foreground AKA rocks here, but I like the colors and on the larger view on black you maybe can see some textures from underwater seaweed just below the waters surface in the foreground. And this is a 70 seconds exposure, as it was already very dark. Time to pack up and go home.

Brickell at Sunset

Shot from Rickenbacker Causeway, Miami, FL


I was shooting the sunset on the south side of Hobie Beach and when I looked to the north I saw THIS.


You should have seen me sprinting along the beach to get to the end of the pier, under the Rickenbacker Causeway Bridge to the other side... LOL. I knew I didn't have too much time, because (i) it was already after sunset and (ii) the colors don't stay there for too long.


I managed a few more shots which I will upload once I have a bit more time, i.e. after I cleaned up the mess the dogs left behind.


They know I am leaving tonight and are a bit upset... I'll miss them too.

I didn't get a chance to go out and shoot anything new this weekend so I was nosing around in older folders if I have missed anything that was then second choice. I quite like how all the clouds seem to be drawn to Downtown Miami.

I am digging around in my archives, this is another shot I owe to two Miami CSI's. Without them stopping their van behind me and saying hello I would have left before the sky turned this pink color and would have missed this.

Update on my 40D: Canon finally "received" and "accepted it for repair under warranty" yesterday. Now it's probably another 10 working days till they ship it back to me, meaning another 2-3 weeks without it. I am so glad I still have my XT.

I hope you don't mind, but I HAD TO upload another shot from last Sunday's sunset. It's just too amazing not to share it with you. Mother nature put on a brilliant show... and that all free of charge. All you needed to do was to take it all in and... ENJOY!

Well not really, but I liked how the rocks "lined up"... sort of. :-) Could be a bit uncomfortable if one tried stepping on them.

I was walking past this hat shop at night in downtown Prescott, AZ and I literally shot from the hip. I didn't compose the picture as I was moving along.

My dear Flickr friends,


Sorry for disappearing so suddenly. I meant to leave this note yesterday, but it was extremely crazy at work and then my computer crashed just before I was about to leave to go to the airport.


I just arrived in Austria where I'll be visiting friends and family. I won't be online too much over the next three weeks but will check in as often as I can, if I can handle the slow dial-up internet connection at my parents' place that is... so not too often... cause it took me 5 minutes to get to the homepage... LOL. Uploads will be impossible at this rate.


Till later. Hugs!

Finally we got some clouds tonight and I just made it in time to catch the sunset on Virginia Key. On the way back I stopped at Hobie Beach Island Park to get a few shots of the Brickell skyline at low tide. I haven't seen such a low tide in quite a while (it's almost a years since I took this shot) and for a change it also wasn't windy resulting in some nice reflections in Biscyane Bay.

The cop was already waiting and I didn't want to push my luck, so this was my last shot of the evening. I didn't miss too much as a minute later all the colors in the sky had vanished and the show was over.

Brickell at Night, Miami, FL


I've been to this spot fairly often, but never saw such a clear reflection, I guess a combination of relatively calm weather and low tide.


I wanted to get a more interesting foreground, i.e. hoped to find a few rocks to spice things up a bit, but it was sooooo muddy... and pitch black. I was worried to whether get stuck in the mud or fall over one of the rocks I was looking for.


Here is a large view on black.


Flickr is having serious hiccups lately. Due to a Flickr bug, lots of contacts photos can´t be seen or aren't being updated. If you are using Firefox, there is a Mozilla script available, which solves the problem in such a way as to highlighting the photos in your contacts that are outdated. Go ahead and install it... :)

Another oldie from the archives... And just as the colors turned real nice the cops kicked us out. "The beach is closed. Leave!" Arrgh...

It didn't look like there will be a spectacular sunset, but we still waited, ignoring the cop telling people almost 45 minutes before sunset that the beach is closed. Then all of a sudden the sun broke briefly through the clouds and as it disappeared painted the cloud and water of Biscayne Bay in a deep red. That's when the cop stopped behind us, a sure sign that it's our turn to leave now... I really had to bite my tongue not to say anything...

On Saturday in Boston, our son-in-law skillfully maneuvered us around the city while I was able to capture a few of my favorite sites from the backseat window! This bridge hadn't been built when I lived in Bean Town in the 60's! Was fun to revisit as a tourist!

The sunset wasn't too spectacular, but I kinda liked the clouds and the cops for a change didn't kick me out 20 minutes before sunset. They only showed up 20 minutes after sunset. And as they drove along the beach they kept talking in Spanish so I ignored them. ;-)

Start of a Very Hot and Humid Day, Shot from Rickenbacker Causeway, Miami, FL


I wanted to be a few more miles south to shoot this, but in the end I was just glad that I made it to a spot that offered a view of the sunrise over water.

Biscayne Bay - Miami, Florida


Click For Best Way To View


Yesterday, on a morning bike-ride back home, I had this very unique - I mean, very unique - view of Miami from the Rickenbacker Causeway. From the "cotton ball" clouds to the lighting, to the single fishing boat - named "Cabo" - crossing the scene, to the crisp looking bay, I believe that my chances to experience and also capture a view like this again are close to nil. There will be other views but one like this will be very difficult to replicate.

I have been crossing this bridge on my bike, back and forth from Key Biscayne, a few time a week for many years. I've never seen a view like this, especially with the unique detail of a single boat at the distance and angle it was captured. Almost looks staged!

To my luck, I was riding with my Canon 6D in a backpack and two lenses. When I approached the long bridge for the hard pedaling ascend I saw a fishing boat turning direction on the bay. The lighting on the skyline was very interesting due to the clouded sky. I got this idea... if everything worked out right.

I pedaled high enough on the bridge to get the right shooting angle, got off my bike and took the camera out of my backpack. I calculated the distance the boat had to move into my panoramic scene once I started shooting the images from left to right. It all worked out!


This panoramic image was made from 4 hand-held horizontal captures with my 50mm prime and stitched it in CS6. The uploaded file is reduced from it's final HighRes size of about 10,000 px wide @ 300 dpi.

chasing sunsets is real fun. sometimes you get lucky and get some amazing colors. but sometimes like a day before yesterday you wount believe what sun can do with you. here i am standing on the beach, ready to take some supposedly beautiful sunset shots. and then i couldn't believe my eyes what happened. the sun had just disappeared within seconds and there was not even a single pink or orange cloud. i took my tail between legs and headed home. i am talking about a day before this sexy sunset. feel free to click below
