Boat on Oslo fjord, Norway, 1986 After having left the bus south of Oslo to walk to the camp site, I noticed the boat moving in the breeze.  Fasci­nated by the simple, somewhat perfect picture, I watched it for a while before I released the shutter. Ocean and clouds before sunset, Prazeres, Island of Madeira, 2005 From a viewpoint 510 m above sea level, 30 minutes before sunset, I observed the play of the sunlight and the clouds over the ocean. Ocean surf at Madeira's north coast, 1995 On my first day on Madeira, it took me hours to drive to the hotel because I felt overwhelmed by Madeira's natural beauty.  On one of my many stops, I saw how the Atlantic ocean met the rocks and produced a mighty surf.

Moonrise in Valdemarsvik, Sweden, 1986 I had just arrived at the Valdemars­vik camp site at Sweden's east coast, when I noticed that the moon was rising over the baltic sea's bay.  I managed to set up my tripod and get this photograph just before it hid behind the cloud layer. The Desert Islands (Ilhas desertas) southeast of Madeira at sunrise, 1997 I was going for day trip to Madeira's neighbour island Porto Santo and was waiting for the ferry to leave.  Shortly after the sunrise, the clouds over the neighboring so-called Desert Islands (Ilhas desertas) and the light cooperated in this dramatic performance. Ocean surf at Teneriffa's north coast, 1996 I spent an evening in Teneriffa's Northwest. The surf at the rocky beach was so strong that at one time, I had to take off my camera and run, otherwise a wave would have ran me down.
