Pictures from three journeys to Guatemala

When I visited Guatemala the first time in 1989 it was as participant of the Proyecto Ecológico Quetzal , a project dedicated to the conservation and protection of cloud forests and to the Quetzal.
Fascinated by the nature, the landscape and the people of this colourful and manifold country I revisited Guatemala in 1995 and 1998. Here you will find some of my best photos showing nature, landscape and the living Mayan culture of Guatemala.

Costa Rica: Photos of nature and beaches

Compared to other countries in Central America Costa Rica is the one with a relativly high standard of living. It's easy to travel around and to access the many national parks which are among the most biologically intense places in the world. When travelling there in 2002 we focused on some of the most impressive national parks - and of course the beaches.

Shapes and colors of nature

When experimenting with photographie I found that sometimes details tell more then pictures glutted with information. The photos provided on these pages show some of those extracts with patterns, structures and colors representing the diversity and beauty of nature.
