I’m definitely more alive than those Namibian trees, I swear. It’s incredible how much unpublished content I want to share with you all, yet my days are so busy right now it’s been difficult to find a 30-min period behind my laptop to edit images. My resolution for this autumn though is to slowly get back to a frequency of one post a day. I’m working on this :) Happy 🍁🍂 season to you all!
What difference in a scenery just a few minutes can make! . Last week I was invited by @nikonfr in the Lofoten, Norway, along with some journalists to try their recently announced full-frame mirrorless camera, the Nikon Z7. Those shots were taken using the new Nikkor 35mm f/1.8 S (Z-mount). Head over my stories to read my feedback about that new camera. Honest review, not sponsored. #nikonzlofoten
I’ve been incredibly busy since I returned from my latest European tour around France-Spain-Portugal last July/August, and I cannot wait to share with you soon the reason why. That being said, I finally managed to get some editing time behind my laptop today, and went back through this summer photos. Here’s one from of a favorite location, in the French Pyrenees.
There’s still hope to see this beautiful animal live many more centuries if not millennia on Earth, but we need to take actions now. Since the start of the 20th century, the population of wild African elephants declined from 3.5million to only 415,000. If you do the math, that’s an average of 26,411 wild elephants that died or have been killed each year since 1901. 26,411!!! WWF estimates that 20,000 is the number of wild African elephants being killed each year for their ivory (that’s 55 a day!). But this isn’t taking into accounts other causes such as the loss of their habitat (halved over the last 40 years, and that now is only 15% of the surface they used to have centuries ago). Now, what can you do to help the population increase again? Take a few minutes and visit www.savetheelephants.org. Many interesting resources that need to be read, and if you ever want to get involved you can always donate to help the charity with their mission. Let’s do our best so our children, grand-children and further generations will also be able to live in a world where elephants still exist, and where those creatures live a peaceful and protected life side by side with humans. 🙏 #worldelephantday
Two hours earlier, we were surrounded by 500 people on an overcrowded beach. We then decided to drive to the mountains, just 45min south, in order to find peace. That’s the beauty of Asturias. #peaksofeurope
It’s one thing to witness this kind of view, but the happiness that comes after hiking for hours in thick fog and eventually emerging above the clouds to see glowing mountains in the distance is almost indescribable. That evening in the French Pyrenees will be remembered for years to come. >> @lolosjohan
