This winter something very extraordinary happened in Japan…it snowed. While not being anything special in the North of the country, Tokyo barely sees more than an annual 5mm of this white magic. But instead of freaking out like most of my Japanese colleagues (who are able to have hour long conversations about the weather) I just enjoyed it!



To be honest I was a bit too late! Most of the leaves were already gone; but I think I still got a few nice shots. That’s the beauty that only mother nature can bring us…

It has been a little while since I posted something; mainly because I left Gunma (a rural prefecture in Japan) to work again in Saitama (right next to Tokyo). Before I officially end the Chapter “Gunma” I want to post one last time some of the stunning sunset impression that I experienced there. There are not many places in Japan that paint the evening as colourful as this little prefecture

Gunma I’ll miss you (but only a little bit…)

I promise you, you won’t find anything like that in Tokyo!!

Right now I am living in Gunma (群馬県). It feels like the whole prefecture is countryside. Gunma doesn’t have much but its sunsets are simply stunning. I usually finish work late at night, but whenever I get out of work a bit earlier (and on Sunday, my only day off) I am taking my camera with me and try to capture the beauty of Gunma’s sunsets.

There is no Japanese summer without Cicadas!

Here there are flying giants making such  strong noise that you barely hear the birds. When one of these monster Insects found the way into my apartment I could not refrain from taking some shots. So here they are my first Macro-shots from Japan…More will follow!

This will be the last post for a little while. On Tuesday I will move to Japan to start a “new Life” there. So it will probably take some time until I have time to post new pictures or stories. However in order to make the waiting more bearable I share with you some special macro pictures. Me and my friend Elisa went on a little garden-safari. We ‘discovered’ many different wild creatures but one animal in particular turned out to be quite photogenic. Enjoy the close-ups of the most terrible and horrifying creature in the whole of Germany: The SPIDER

Dies wird der letzte Eintrag für eine kleine Weile sein. Am Dienstag werde ich nach Japan “umsiedeln” um dort mein neues Leben anzufangen. Es wird deshalb ein bisschen dauern bis ich wieder Zeit für neue Fotos oder Geschichten haben werde. Nichts desto trotz möchte ich euch das Warten noch ein bisschen erleichtern und hab deshalb ganz besondere Makro Bilder hochgeladen. Ich und meine Freundin Elisa sind auf eine kleine Garten-Safari gegangen. Wir haben viele wilde Kreaturen endecken können, aber ein Tier war besonders fotogen. Lehnen Sie sich zurück und genießen sie die Nahaufnahmen der schrecklichsten und furchteinflößesten Kreatur Deutschlands: Die SPINNE
