Ripening Oranges

Ripening Oranges

The Andalusian orange trees bear their delicious fruits in summer, but it takes them a couple of months to fully ripen: harvest-time usually starts shorty after the first freeze in December – and that’s when supermarkets all over Europe are offering those cheap orange-buckets.


Andalusia in HDR

When I visited Andalusia for the first time in October 2009, I was completely awe-struck by the inspiring beauty of the landscape and the intense colors. Jim Morrison captured the region’s spirit in the Doors song “Spanisch Caravan”:

Carry me Caravan take me away
Take me to Portugal, take me to Spain
Andalusia with fields full of grain
I have to see you again and again.

In two weeks I took about 2.000 pictures and started my first HDR experiments – this technique is perfect to capture the high contrasts and brilliant colors of the region.
