Essaouira, Morocco

This photograph was taken on the shore of Essaouira, Morocco. It depicts a fantasia, which is a traditional equestrian performance we can see during Moroccan festivals. Groups of men on horses speed face to face and fire their gunpowder guns in the sky all at once. The tradition is inspired from historical wartime attacks of Berber and desert knights. It is quite a rare and impressive sight. I was lucky enough to witness this real practice as I set foot in Essaouira after a long drive from Marrakesh. As a photographer, I couldn't be happier.

Rhône, Montelimar, Drome, France

Rhône, Montelimar, Drome, France postcard from

The River Rhône near Monetlimar in France in the early morning sunshine. A commercial barge or péniche is waiting for a lock to be ready, and by the jetties there are two fisherman on the bank. The river runs from it's source in Valais, Switzerland, to the Mediterranean Sea, running through lake Geneva on the way. It's a fast flowing river with modernised locks for commercial traffic, and power generating barrages supplying a good percentage of electricity. In the background is the 12th century hilltop cathedral at Viviers.

Brooklyn Bridge, New York, USA

The Brooklyn Bridge from Manhatten to Brooklyn in New York City is all lit up in the evening. When I used to live in Brooklyn, I took the subway to Wall Street and always looked out over the bridge at the most magnificent panoramic views of the water. It sometimes was a 45 minute ride to Wall Street where I worked. The structure and architecture of the bridge is so intricate. There's no where like this in the world.

Shenandoah National Park , Virginia, USA

This beautiful photo was taken on Skyline Drive in the Shenandoah National Park last spring when the rhodedendron were in bloom. Skyline Drive has 75 overlooks so when you see a scene that looks photo worthy you should be able to find a place to stop. The spring was beautiful last year and I was able to get some good roadscapes. I love to shoot curvy mountain roads and when you add blooming bushes in it is even better!
