Sevilla, when it’s still cold at home — Part 6

Sunday, December 2nd, 2018

Walk­ing through town, where it’s always worth mak­ing a pic­ture … or two. Same in the old World’s Fair area, where the EXPO ’92 was hos­ted and where so many nice spots were left behind.

Con­trary to Lis­bon (EXPO ’98) in Seville no one seems to be proud of this area and what has been built. No one recom­men­ded … Read the rest

Real Alcaz­ar is one of the mir­acles of Span­ish his­tory, built for king Peter of Castile between 1350 and 1369.  It is the old­est roy­al palace in Europe still in use.

Wednesday, October 17th, 2018

Bull­fight­ing is still a cul­tur­al high­light in this part of spain — wheth­er you like it or not. The Placa de Tor­os is worth vis­it­ing nev­er­the­less — even out­side the sea­son.

A won­der­ful span­ish mar­ket can be found at the Mer­cado de Tri­ana — its one of the old­est mar­kets in town opened 1823, built on the rem­nants of the … Read the rest

Sevilla, when it’s still cold at home — Part 2

Wednesday, October 10th, 2018

Calle Sierpes is a won­der­ful shop­ping lane in the old cen­ter of Sevilla. I found tons of beau­ti­ful sub­jects (bet­ter objects) which give an impres­sion of the ancient his­tory of this beau­ti­ful and amaz­ing town.

As so many times before, I made two albums, one in col­our and one in black and white, as both show their spe­cial mood.… Read the rest

El norte de España

Wednesday, June 13th, 2018

In spring 2016 I trav­elled to North­ern Spain, vis­it­ing the Basque Coun­try, Can­tab­ria, Aragon and Castile and Leon.

The land­scape is stun­ning and so we stayed … Read the rest

Hiking the Burgruine Weissenstein

Between the years we were hik­ing to the Burg Weis­sen­stein in the Upper Palat­in­ates Stone­wood Forest. Dur­ing a snowstorm, in a winter won­der­land, we found the Burg covered by an ice shield. This area is one of my favor­ite hik­ing regions dur­ing all sea­sons.
