Half-moon, Germany, 2001 On a hike though Germany's Upper Danube valley, I relished the rock faces in the fading evening light. The rising half-moon was bright enough for this picture. Cloudy evening sky over Porto Santo (Madeira's neighbor island), 1997 On the ferry back to Madeira, as the last sun­light slowly faded, a host of fleecy clouds shimmered in delicate colors. Sunset at Madeira's south coast, 1999 On a February evening, I went to a viewpoint at Madeira's south coast. I relished the sun­set in the warmth while it was bitter winter in Germany.

Evening sky in Gamle Skagen, Denmark, 1990 I was in Skagen when I noticed that the evening light had turned an un­usual yellow. When I left the house, the sky seemed to burn in in­tense colors. Moon behind cloud on evening sky, Germany, 1984 When the dusk was falling, I climbed up on the roof to get a time ex­posure of the moon and the evening sky. The clouds are blurred because they were moving during the exposure. Northern lights, Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, Canada, 1992 The strange thing glowing in a faint green was not a cloud but a northern light. The yellow spot at the bottom is the moon that was just about to rise. Its gentle movements appear blurred in this time ex­posure.
