What has impressed me on the boat rides leaving Rausu (Hokkaido) and heading into the bay or street of Kunashirskiy at 44 degree north was this unique light. So I have put Svalbard on my destination list in 2018, at the end of the summer, when the midnight sun gives place to sunrises and sunset.
From Febr 18 to March 1 I have the tremendous pleasure to spend time in Japan with a group guided by Ade. My friend and photo colleague Pierre will be part of the party. So, as I have not done photography in these winterly conditions, preparation is taking more time than usual. What to bring along, what is too much and what is too heavy is getting quite an obsession.
BTW: this picture has been shot on Jan 15th out of the roof window of our home in Savigny with my mobile phone...
From August 29th to September I have the exciting pleasure to make a trip to Amboseli NP in Kenya for a few days and the to fly into the Maasai Mara again. The small group will be guided by Federico Veronesi.
