Magical sunrise at Richmond Park, London

Early Sunday last week I went for a long run as one of the final training runs before the upcoming marathon. I ran through the Richmond Park and the sunrise I’ve witnessed left me stunned. It was one of the most beautiful scenes I’ve ever seen. I’ve started early, around 5AM. I passed first 1…

Hiking on Tenerife: Cruz del Carmen in Anaga Mountains

Anaga Mountains found on the northeastern side of Tenerife offer an entirely different environment than the rest of the island. Green, humid forest, the variety of plants and trees makes them an excellent area for hiking and exploration. One of my last days on Tenerife I went for a long hike…

Hiking on Tenerife: Arona to Roque del Conde to Roque de los Brezos and back

In the area of Arona, there are many distinct mountains. They each reach up to 1000 meters high, but their height makes a big impression because you can observe them almost from the sea level. So one afternoon I’ve decided to go for a hike to a nearby mountain with quite interesting, flat top. To…

Photographing the 2018 London Marathon

The time went by so fast, and I didn’t realize it was almost a year since the last event. This year the Virgin Money London Marathon was set on 22 April 2018. I wasn’t watching the date, so almost by accident, I found out that it will happen on the last Sunday. Of course, I couldn’t miss it. I…

Visiting England's South Coast

At the turn of September and October, I took few days of vacation and together with my wife we’ve spent three days on the southern coast of UK. In this post, you can find a collection of memories from places we’ve visited. It was the first time we’ve been to the UK’s coast, so we were excited to…

Box Hill hike in Surrey

Last weekend on sunny Sunday, together with some friends, we went for our first hike in London’s neighbourhood. The weather was pleasant and this moderate length hike was very enjoyable. The event was quite spontaneous. Just the evening before Dan asked us to join him and his lovely wife Ale. I didn…

Photographing the 2017 London Marathon

The 2017 London Marathon was one of my first attempt to street & event photography in London. I didn’t set many expectations about the outcome as I haven’t done much of this kind of shoots in the past. So instead, I’ve turned my mindset towards exploration and fun. Catching up with elite runners My…

Catching the light

It was 8 PM, the day before when I’ve got the crazy idea of going for a trip to photograph the sunrise from the top of Babia Góra. I would later see, that clouds almost entirely covered the peak and no sun for me, but it was one of best hikes I’ve ever had. I was still on the short run when the…

Streets of Hamburg

So my last post was about running in Hamburg. But I also did some walking. Here are some interesting places and moments I’ve captured on a short walk near Alster and city center. Enjoy. Let’s start at the Barmbek station. I admire fast, good and reliable transport. S- and U-Bahns are great way to…

2014 Beskidy Ultra Trail report

Niestety nie wystartowałem w tegorocznej edycji Beskidy Ultra Trail. I choć złożyło się na to kilka powodów, ostatecznie jestem z tego mimo wszystko zadowolony. Udało mi się za to pojawić z aparatem na trasie wyścigu i zrobić kilka zdjęć uczestnikom. Okazało się to samo w sobie organizacyjnym…

Na Babią, po zachód słońca!

W ostatni weekend, sobotę, 7. czerwca postanowiłem się wybrać na Babią Górę fotografować zachód słońca. Dawno temu miałem okazję być tam ze znajomymi na wschodzie, ale nie udało mi się jeszcze zobaczyć schyłku dnia. Akurat prognoza sugerowała idealne okno pogodowe, dzień wcześniej było deszczowo a i…

Of we go, czyli Śnieżka 2014

W połowie maja miałem okazję spędzić kilka dni we Wrocławiu. Natalia coachowała na Rails Girls Wrocław, a ja wykorzystałem wolną sobotę, żeby wybrać się w Karkonosze. Jeszcze nigdy wcześniej nie byłem w tamtych okolicach, może poza zimowym pobytem w Pecu pod Śnieżką, prawie 6 lat temu. Tym razem cel…
