my next phototrip: The Wave in North Arizona

The Wave

Foto: Synnatschke

The Wave is located on the Colorado Plateau, near the Utah and Arizona border. The area is a gallery of gruesomely twisted sandstone, resembling deformed pillars, cones, mushrooms and other odd creations. Deposits of iron claim some of the responsibility for the unique blending of color twisted in the rock, creating a dramatic rainbow of pastel yellows, pinks and reds.

The foto above is from well known photographer Steffen Synnatschke who’s wonderful photobook/guide “Wonderland of Rocks” is a must for every USA Southwest enthusiast.

Did you see that ludicrous display last night? (*1)

The first time after month I really enjoyed a FC Bayern Bundesliga match. What did new coach Heynckes change in so little time after takeing over from Klinsmann. Or what did Klinsmann do with a functional team to let them look so bad in the last month’. After 50 min I already graded Ribery in world class constitution: seems he is showing his best for observers  from Real Madrid? Two times passing the ball on the right and overtaking oponent on the left, fantastic stop of long high ball during a right turn, always running like a maniac, many assists and one goal. Also amazing goal from Toni in impossible position. The whole team played great. They seem to believe to make it again for the German championchip. Thats fun being live in the Allianz arena.  Two matches remaining …

(*1) Quote from It Crowd series 3 episode 3


Ribery, Toni and Van Bommel after Ribery’s 2:0 . Schweinsteiger right.

Mods Mayday 2009 Birmingham

Just returned from a long weekend in Birmingham where we visited the Mods Mayday 2009 concerts. We enjoyed the weekend away from home and escaping for a short time daily routine.  We followed around 10 of the 20 bands performing, and also had some time to see Birmingham. We knew hat English Hotel rooms are not very spacious, but our Hotel Room in the NiteNite Hotel was the smallest Hotel room we ever had, and I am quite sure we will never again  expeience such a small room. Here some photos of our Birmingham Mods Weekend
