Autumn on the creek

Autumn on the creek

Every year, it makes a lot of fun to find places where I can take pictures of colorful autumn leaves in combination with running water. Es macht mir jedes Jahr aufs neue großen Spass, Plätze zu suchen wo ich Bilder von buntem Herbstlaub in Kombination mit fließendem Wasser fotografieren kann.

Autumn in the Seewinkel

Autumn in the Seewinkel

While in the vineyards in Seewinkel the leaves gradually changes from green to orange and red, it shines violet on the shores of the small salt water lakes and some meadows. Every year I’m fascinated of the „Sea side aster“-blossoms (Tripolium pannonicum) again. Während sich in den Weingärten im Seewinkel allmählich das Laub von grün […]

Spring feelings

Spring feelings

They still exist – meadows without commercial use and fertilization. Human interventions only take in form of regulatory mowing. And at the sight of a meadow in which thousands of autumn crocus bloom, the comparison with a spring-like crocus meadow is obvious. Es gibt sie doch noch. Wiesen die keinerlei wirtschaftliche Nutzung erfahren und wo […]

Natural Ikebana

This year, we started looking for new places to photograph European Cyclamen (Cyclamen purpurascens).  This group, which spontaneously reminded me of Ikebana, we found next to a road along the Salza. In diesem Jahr machten wir uns auf die Suche nach neuen Plätzen für das Fotografieren von Europäische Alpenveilchen (Cyclamen purpurascens). Diese Gruppe, die mich […]

That evening, we wanted to see the lunar eclipse and maybe take some photos. On the way we found a few praying mantises. She also stopped long enough and I was able to take some pictures of her. An diesem Abend wollten wir die Mondfinsternis sehen und vielleicht auch fotografieren. Auf dem Weg dorthin fanden […]

Mountain Apollo

Mountain Apollo

After we had to change our vacation plans, I had already given up the hope to be able to photograph a Apollo this year. We accidentally found this Mountain Apollo-lady during a short break on the way home from a trip to an orchid place.   Nachdem wir unsere Urlaubspläne wieder einmal kurzfristig ändern mussten, […]

Field of flowers

Field of flowers

The Marsh gladiolus, also sword lily (Gladiolus palustris), grow only in wet meadows and unfortunately have become very rare. They are considered „severely endangered“ in Austria, in some federal states they are already „threatened with extinction“. How long they will delight us with their colourful appearance depends on us. Die Sumpf-Siegwurzen, auch Sumpf-Gladiolen (Gladiolus palustris), […]

Curly head

Curly head

The Adriatic Lizard Orchid (Himantoglossum adriaticum) is one of the most impressive orchids in Austria for me. Like little males, the individual flowers are „hanging“ on the inflorescence. Seen from a distance, the tongues look like little curls. The plants can also get a bit bigger. I’ve seen plants that reach up to my waist […]
