frost-covered leaves

Last weekend we went on a trip to the „Viennese local mountains“. At an altitude of just over 1000 meters above sea level, we finally came over the fog hanging in the valley. And after the border between Lower Austria and Styria, we even found a bit of winter 🙂 Am vergangenen Wochenende machten wir einen Ausflug […]

little islands

The autumn leaves on the trees, shone on by the sun, were reflected in the water. The overgrown stones looked like two small islands in the golden river. Im Wasser spiegelte sich das von der Sonne angeschienen herbstliche Laub auf den Bäumen. Die bewachsenen Steine wirkten wie zwei kleine Inseln im goldenen Fluss. Image Details […]

typical waldviertel

typical waldviertel

In autumn I like to visit the rivers of the Waldviertel. The reddish-colored water, due to the high iron content, in combination with the mossy stones and the colorful autumnal foliage enables countless motifs. This time I also found a discolored fern, which additionally opened up new perspectives. Im Herbst besuche ich gerne die Flüsse […]

The other side

The other side

Last weekend our highest mountain, the Gr0ßglockner, presented itself pearly-white in front of glorious blue sky. The autumn-colored larches in the Kodnitztal in East Tyrol rounded out the sight for the perfect postcard. But the joy was short-lived. Less than half an hour later, the first bands of clouds moved in front of the mountain and covered […]

dangerous beauty

A fantastic sight with hundreds of these pink flowers was presented to me in Marchfeld last week. This meadow in pink and green gave a spring-like impression. Only the cold, stormy wind brought me back to the autumn reality. Fortunately, there are still meadows that are not used economically and allow such accumulations of poisonous flowers. […]

Numerous motifs can still be found in September. This adult caterpillar of the Spurge Hawk-moth / Hyles euphorbiae is already shortly before pupation.

Predatory Bush Cricket

Predatory Bush Cricket

Although the Predatory Bush Cricket/ Saga pedo is one of the largest insects in our homeland, it is the most difficult for me to find due to its excellent camouflage. And when I do have one in front of the lens, taking pictures with the 180mm macro is a special challenge 😉 Obwohl die Große […]

bewitching

The scent of the European alpine cyclamen (Cyclamen purpurascens) in the Vienna Woods is bewitching. The forests near Vienna are currently full of them. The best opportunity to experience this for yourself is now 😉 Schon frühmorgens ist der Duft der Eurpäischen Alpen-Zyklamen, auch Alpenveilchen (Cyclamen purpurascens), im Wienerwald betörend. In der Nähe von Wien sind zur […]
