I am getting so excited to return to #CostaRica ! I have been once before, but it was a last minute trip and I mostly just hung out in a hotel with @thepalateprincess. Though she did make sure I got to achieve a my dream of meeting a sloth in person! Other than try to meet more sloths like this beauty, what should I do in Costa Rica? I’ll be spending about a week on the Caribbean coast in April.

Marsaxlokk, Malta. An underrated place at the very south of an isolated Mediterranean island. Characterised with fishing boats this village is Malta's largest fishing hub.
I must admit, I am hooked 💯🤷♂️ @djiglobal changed the game of photography for me for ever. Probably many of you can say the same as me. The perspectives that we can capture today, we could only dream about them before. Now it is like eating a piece of cake!
This is one of my favorite images I capture when me and @_fabiozingg went to Kalsoy back in February. Standing there after a steep hike we made it to the point of view that we had in mind.
It was a really good and productive even I must say. We saw some amazing light that evening. #roamthefaroeislands

Just getting back to reality and having a chance to look through all my photos from Europe. Had an amazing time but it was so cold 🥶 I was not prepared but that’s my fault for thinking Scandinavia in February was a good idea! A few locals told me that apparently that time last year it had been -25 degrees. I think that was their way of telling me to stop moaning 😄
These photos are taken on Suomenlinna, an island fortress a quick ferry ride from Helsinki. Its a UNESCO World Heritage Site now but theres a little community that live there in the old army barracks and officers houses. Well worth a visit if anyone is heading that way - just wear layers!

As photographers we are constantly chasing light, often subconsciously. We understand that light can change a mood or give a total different look to the scene. We can intuitively use light to our advantage or manipulate it so we get the effect that we’re after. Light or the void of it can drastically alter an appearance, perception or perspective.
Standing in the late afternoon wooded area, the smell of the marsh reached my nostrils bringing thoughts of Papa’s ivory shrimp boots and his dark grey felt hat. Sunday dinners at my grandparents down the bayou lingered in my mind.
Like ancient trees decaying and the ground soggily coming back to life after an unexpectedly bipolar winter, I waited patiently. Unable to see with the naked eye, I was happily aware of a barn owl who stopped in his travels to visit. He was the proud new occupant of a deep burrow within an aged cedar tree.
Licorice lace adorned George the owl’s window and with my lens I could barely see his masterful face. I’m sure he was aware of me, my 5’2” presence, perhaps a tiny giant in his sight. In anticipation, I scanned the trees as darkened tones of rose gold light fell heavily. My eyes and camera adjusted focus, it was still winter and a sharp cold wind blew on my face reminding me that nightfall was near.
March, in like a lion. Roar.
A few flurries dreamingly landed on my lens as I watched the light fade. The dark shadows grew larger, traveling from trunk to trunk, limb to limb. A symphony rang in my ears, birds calling, chirping, one toad croaking. It often reminded me of the dangers and absolute beauty of the many inhabitants that surrounded me.
The landscape changed characteristics as last of the gold gave warmth, revealing some trees that wore blankets of lichen and darkness, clinging on to trunks and limb, the dark retreating when it was lit by the sun.
In my lifetime I’ve come to realize that we have both light and dark within us and it’s our personal decision to choose what we act upon. We can’t be all sun or all moon and it’s the depth of the lightness or darkness of who we are that makes life most significant. - Nancy Marie ♥️

Jacques Gabriel Bridge, Blois.
Making a weekend trip around the Loire Valley seems a good idea with a good weather. Have a nice weekend everybody.
If you make a day road trip from Paris around the Loire Valley, I think it is a good idea to drive all the way to the furthest point and start with Château de Chenonceau. You can adjust yourself for the rest of your trip according to your time left.
You have to pay the entrance fee even to enter the gardens, which is the only way to see the palace from outside.
Tip for the photographers: For the reflection photo, try first the right hand side when you face the entrance of the palace.
