Hard to believe but yet again a year is gone.
Hardly know what we have done this year. But then looking back
at some of our images we feel quite well with the photographic
work in 2006.
What are the key areas we explored in 2006?
- Dunes portfolio got extended
- Some new IR photos
- Oak trees from our local area make great subjects
- Finaly we got more happy with our B&W work
- Our Alcatraz photos show that combining multiple images can
create fine results
Selecting the top 10 photos is challenging. We have
definitely shot more nice photos in 2006 but these ten photos
kind of represent our work in 2006.
Dunes will be one of our main portfolio subjects also for 2007.
There is so much to explore.

Pismo Beach Pier
We love Piers and the Pismo Beach
Pier is so much fun to photograph.

We love the shape of California oak trees. Here
a storm provided the perfect backdrop.

We like IR photography but have still to improve
on our technique. Here are some nice results.

combined from 3 exposures in Photomatix.

We only show one B&W photo here but got quite a

Exploring the Leica M8
In 2006 we started to use the Leica M8 rangefinder
camera. This will likely lead to new ways to explore all kinds

Last minute bonus photo
We could not resist to add an
extra photo we took just before Xmas.

We sell prints of these photos (print 15x10" ond
13x19" paper). You can order here.
We often work still on older images
from the last 2-4 years (about 30K RAW files) and manage to create
new portfolio prints.
