greetings, from, sunset, bay, glacier, jökulsarlon, camera, iceland, 2016Hi there, we're back from an awesome trip through Iceland. In the last weeks we drove more than 4000km all over the island and had really close encounters with wild puffins, seals and huge humpback whales, saw breathtaking Northern Lights dancing directly above our heads and all around us, paddled through huge glacier bays filled with icebergs, had nice sunsets and interesting river crossings in the highlands on the F-roads and had some fun with our Jeep, not to forget all the hiking and the thousands of waterfalls and rainbows along the road and simply the interesting and active volcanic landscapes ...

sunset, roadshot, mountain, forest, trees, italy, 2016During the last two weeks we were finally on the road again and drove a few thousand kilometers from the Baltic Sea in the North of Germany south to the Dolomites in Italy. We had lots of new impressions, experiences, awesome scenic drives and beautiful grand vistas. And, in contrast to some previous trips, this time we were incredibly lucky with the weather. We enjoyed a very good mix of sunny weather with blue bird skies to relax and spend some time at the beach and some dynamic mountain weather with a lot of drama in the sky which is perfect for landscape photography. I will not write a ... Continue reading →

sunset, sun, summer, mountains, forest, view, rugged, saxon switzerland, germany, 2016Last weekend, after a period of very unstable weather with lots of thunderstorms and heavy rain here in Germany, on Friday, the forecast for the next two days looked stable and promising enough for me to go on my mountain summit bivouac in Saxon Switzerland National Park. I planned this trip around a possible sunrise shooting at a peak called Heringstein, where I wasn't before. I wanted to explore the area and scout possible new locations for upcoming trips into the region. Between early June and mid-July the suns position at sunrise would be exactly between two peaks you see from Heringstein ... Continue reading →

greetings, from, autumn, valley, forest, harz, germany, 2015Last weekend I re-visited the Elendstal in the Harz region. A pretty nice valley I first explored in this years winter season. The weather was overcast and a little rainy which is actually pretty good for forest photography because the rain pushes the natural colors and with a polarizer filter you can easily boost the overall contrast and at the same time reduces reflections of the water which makes a huge positive difference on the image. But unfortunately due to our autumn trip to the Dolomites and the massive rainfalls and strong winds during the last weeks I was a bit late to capture autumns ... Continue reading →

lake, reflection, autumn, fall, trees, mountains, alpes, dolomites, italy, 2015, latestThis year we have visited and explored the Italian Dolomites during the autumn season in October. In the beginning of the year we originally planed to go to the famous Aletsch Glacier and the Matterhorn region around the village Zermatt in Switzerland but after a little online research in Google Maps, Earth and The Photographer's Ephemeris for possible photo opportunities, locations, sights and things to do there (beside hiking and photographing) and how to actually get there we both decided to look for an alternative and postpone the trip to an early summer season when the wild flowers ...

greetings, from, river, stream, national park, jungle, valley, forest, czech republic, 2015Last weekend, after literally months of incredibly hot weather here in Germany this year, I once again left the comfort zone of my regular life with our cozy appartment, the large comfortable bed, my digital darkroom / computer & gaming room with new inspirational and entertaining digital adventures like Witcher III waiting for me to be consumed as well as the strong, hot and tasty coffee in the morning. All in exchange for another real experience and to really feel alive and enjoy being out in nature in the central German uplands of Saxon-Switzerland National Park as well as the fore ...

mountain, snow, roadshot, street, norway, 2015At the beginning of the year we thought about possible travels for this summer. The most important questions were first and foremost where to go and secondly what type of travel do we actually want to do. After some consideration and research we decided to do a roadtrip through Fjord Norway and travel and sleep in a camping van for the first time. Due to some social obligations in June and July the only possible timeframe for the trip was May, which means we would visit Norway before the main season when most of the campsites, streets and trails are literally full with people, tents and camping ...

sunset, forest, sunstar, garlic, flower, spring, leipzig, germanyAt the end of April / beginning of May is the season for the blooming wild garlic (or bear's garlic) in and around the forests and parks of Leipzig. During this two or three weeks almost everywhere and as far as one can see the woods are full of this blooming wild garlic and its special smell. It really looks like a white carpet in the forests. During the last fours years or so I tried to create quite some good photos of this natural phenomenon and I am pretty satisfied with those photos but this year I wanted to create an image with a bit more specials or magic features like a little stream ...

sunrise, greetings from, golden, mountain, saxon switzerland, germany, 2015I recently again spent some days in Saxon Switzerland National Park hiking some peaks and exploring the area while sleeping in the car at night with the focus not on creating photos but primarily to enjoy being outdoors with no goals to capture or any possible photos in mind. One morning, after spending a pretty cold night in the car, I enjoyed this nice golden and warm sunrise on "Kleiner Winterberg" in Saxony-Switzerland, Germany. More processed photos will follow soon.

wolfswarte, winter, harz, sunset, snow, sun, germany, 2015Yesterday I have enjoyed a nice but incredibly windy and cold sunset on the Wolfswarte in Harz, Germany. In these moments when you're in nature and feel your body and the cold you really know you're still alive and not only yet another zombie sitting at the computer (or using any mobile device) the whole day. Spending some time outdoors in nature away from any devices and media and whatnot is always a good idea to clear one's head again. So, go out and play... RSS consumers of this site will automatically get informed about the final image of this shooting. **UPDATE** ... Continue reading →
