The lost rocket

Published March 27th, 2012

24th of August 2011 I was shoot interactive 360° spherical panoramas during the launch a Soyuz-U rocket carrying an unmanned Progress M-THC 12M cargo vehicle from the Baikonur Cosmodrome.

Unfortunately, due to an engine failure, it never reached orbit and crashed in Siberia just 340 seconds after launch. While this was bad news for the international space industry my panoramas brought more media and public attention to Russia's role as the gateway to the International Space Station. This panorama was featured in DER SPIEGEL's iPad issue number 35.

Sunset at Cabo da Roca

Published March 27th, 2012

During our trip to Palmela 2011 - International Panoramic Photography Festival, one day we had been in central part of Portugal. I had plans to go to Cape Roca and take pictures of the sunset there but the sky was overcast and rainy all day. On the way back to the hotel we decided to go anyway because this day was our only opportunity. When we arrived the sky was still overcast, but on the horizon there was a narrow strip of clear sky. Hooray!

I had just a few minutes to set up and photograph the panorama as the sun passed through this strip before sunset enveloped us in darkness...
