The Surfer

An early morning shoot that yielded no significant sunrise but the early spring fog and the cool weather provided for a good backdrop. The surfers were out as were the joggers and little ole me with my tripod and gear getting ready to do some long exposures on the beach in Tel Aviv.

This surfer came out of the water and I was able to pivot and turn quickly to capture this shot.

Zurich at Night

The view of Zurich from our hotel was just as spectacular at night as it was during the day (only just a bit trickier to capture).

Westfield World Trade Center

The Westfield World Trade Center was completed and opened in August 2016. It replaces The Mall at the World Trade Center which located on the concourse level of the original World Trade Center which was destroyed on September 11, 2001.

The architecture of this mall is pretty spectacular and if you stand in the right spot you can see the new World Trade Center through the slats. I took this picture last fall but I’m heading back to NYC in a few weeks and I intend to pay it another visit.

Along the Limmat River

The Limmat river runs through the city of Zurich and commences right to Lake Zurich. Okay…had to let you know the details but the beauty of it is just walking along the river on a beautiful, sunny, pre-spring day.

Layered View of Zurich

Sometimes you just get lucky. We checked into our hotel, the Marriott Hotel Zurich, and we entered our room we were met with this view.

Alone at Last!

I love shooting at night when the crowds die down. This particular evening it was about 10:30pm when my husband and I returned from dinner. We went to our room and I grabbed my camera and headed out, quickly yelling behind me, “I’ll be back in 1/2 hour.” I think it was after midnight when I finally got back but the beach in Tel Aviv always does that to me. I seem to get lost in the calm, the gentle rolling of the waves.

I wasn’t quite alone though. Different parts of the beach told different stories…the beach restaurant with the bright lights &  roaring music; the treasure hunter combing the sand for lost treasure; the backpackers enjoying a bonfire and claiming their real estate for the night and the young couple finding the perfect spot by the lifeguard station to steal away some romantic time alone.
