Because there were no major trips possible in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic, I used the time and picked out the best pictures of of our numerous visits to Venice and Burano , the small lagoon island, and created another two calendars. All 12 calendars can be ordered in bookshops, via amazon* or from Calvendo*.
Below you can find the title and back pages of the calendars. By clicking on the title pages you will be forwarded to the corresponding product pages of amazon*.
In addition, selected pictures of my calendars from Kenya, Tanzania and from my Japan calendar are now available as canvas prints* in sizes up to 120x80cm and some also as 1000 piece puzzles*.
Venice - From dusk till dawn
Beautiful pictures from Venice, the city of palaces, canals and bridges. Away from the masses of visitors and outside the visiting hours of the day tourists, the lagoon city seems to be fallen out of time. In 13 atmospheric pictures, the proud city shows itself in the glory of the past centuries. You can see more pictures of Venice in my Gallery.
Burano - the colourful island
Burano, the small island in the lagoon of Venice is known for its colourful houses. Legend says that the colours were used by the fishermen to find their way home on foggy days - or when they were drunk. The colours of the houses are not chosen arbitrarily. For centuries it has been established that a new coat of paint must be applied for at the authorities and the colour must be agreed upon. You can see more pictures of Venice in my Gallery.
Leopards in the wild
Leopards are the most beautiful cats of prey in Africa. Since they are loners and mostly hidden in bushes, they are difficult to find. This calendar contains unique pictures of these fascinating animals in the wild. All photos were taken in the wild in Kenya and Tanzania.
Safari in Masai Mara
Africa is regarded as the cradle of mankind, nowhere else you can find untouched nature with such a large and diverse animal wealth. In addition to unique wildlife shots, this calendar also contains wonderful lighting scenes that are unique to Africa. All pictures were taken in December and January in the Masai Mara, Kenya’s famous and most animal-rich game reserve. You can find more pictures in my Masai Mara Gallery. If you are interested in a safari to Masai Mara for yourself, see our travelogue for detailes informations.
