Free time at Haifa Harbour, Israel

Haifa is the city for work, Tel Aviv for relax, Jerusalem for praying, Acco for history … so they say. Still, some relax you can find also in Haifa, at the docks.

Wild-life shooting in Camargue National Park

In Camargue national park (France) I counted the highest number of … flamingos? Horses? Mosquitoes? No, the amount of huge and professional zoom objectives overwhelmed everything else. Although feeling somehow ashamed, I shot some pictures with my 70-300 while biking around with my wife for a short holiday. Wildlife and panoramas in this area are quite peculiar: because of birds and salt flats everything looks “pink”. The foam created by the constant and strong wings on salty lagoons added that touch of craziness. Judge my art in the new gallery “Camargue pinks and blues”!
