I went to the World Naked Bike Ride 2010 in London and Brighton again to take some photographs. Every year in cities around the world people ride bikes naked to celebrate cycling and the human body. The ride demonstrates the vulnerability of cyclists on the road and is a protest against car culture. I have uploaded some galleries on

Below is on of the images from the London ride.

Due to the second volcanic ash cloud, coming  as a result of the eruption of Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull volcano, our return flights from Lanzarote have been delayed by seven days. This gave me more opportunity to take photographs, including shots from a nightdive and some exciting kite-surf stunts.

I love freediving and Lanzarote offers a lot of different places to explore the underwater world where you can find school of small to large fish, Angel Sharks, Stingrays, TriggerFish, Sepia and more.

One  amazing location for freediving is a spot between Puerto del Carmen and Porto Calero. If you swim about 70 meters off shore, you can view 2 wrecks in around 20 meters depth. I have managed to take a panorama of both of these, which I will include in my Lanzarote Gallery.

Below is one of the panoramas of the wrecks I have explored

Having spent our Christmas Eve with friends in the country side, we were able to enjoy a nice walk through a quite winterly landscape. Gogi, their companion came along and obviously enjoyed running through the snow and playing with other dogs that passed us along the way. Below you can see Gogi waiting up for us.


I have never seen such a well fed squirrel before, until we got stalked by this very friendly example. Just a moment before it fed on some wheat someone put out for the birds I assume, when it noticed us and provided a perfect model for this photograph.

Just came back from Tolouse in France and enjoyed myself for a few days. We had a walk with friends on the Rivert Garonne in the early evening hours. The bridge “Pont Neuf”, which is actually the oldest bridge of Toulouse featured a lovely display of changing colours introduced by illumination from below.

I went to the Clapham Common Fireworks Display, which started yesterday at 7.30pm. The display was really great and surprisingly was free to attend. If you go to the Battersea Park one on Saturday, then you will have to fork out £7….

Made me feel like new year!

Just got back from the London Freeze, a London Snowboard, Ski and Music Festival. They built a 35 meter high ramp with a length of 100 meters, from which spectators can get nice and close to the Best in Snowboarding and Skiing.

Whilst freediving with my brother in Sistiana/Italy we found a sunk submarine from the World War II. The wreck was in approximately 10m depth and could only be seen from around 1 – 2m distance, as the visibility was very bad. Of course we have taken quite a large amount of images, which will be put in a gallery very soon.

The first sample below:
