Topping

As I discovered this location, I was instantly thinking of it when there’s some snow, the soft light of dawn and a common kingfisher as a topping somewhere in the frame. I went back there quite a few times since then and could observe a kingfisher for two times on this particular branch. There was […]

Soul Delight

This particular morning was nothing but priceless. Since I’m constantly visiting these wetlands for about five years now, I was always hoping for some deer to cross the water. And of course, I was also hoping for some decent conditions. But in all the years I only spotted a deer once in the far distance […]

Autumn Beat

Autumn Beat

Again I was out in the wetlands of Upper Austria hoping for a nice sunrise to do some backlit photography, but as often, things turned out different and it became a foggy but bright morning. At a nearby lake there are a couple of birch trees and since it was autumn they carried their fall […]

Familiar Lands

Although this area is certainly my most visited location, I guess I never did a landscape image there, because I’m actually always looking for wildlife in these wetlands. But this particular morning I decided to grab the wide angle instead of the telephoto lens to capture some of the beauty of spring. Hope you enjoy […]

Beside their fabulous beauty, it always amazes me how these lovely flowers seem to lighten up like little lanterns. Even when there’s just very poor light as on this image taken about an hour before sunrise.

Remote Familiarity

Corsica definitely doesn’t disappoint when it comes to stunning mountain vistas. We discovered this untouched hidden location already during our first days on the island and it was actually one of the most exciting montane gems I’ve ever explored. No matter in which direction I was looking, I was completely surrounded by breathtaking wild beauty. […]

Wasp Waist

Wasp Waist

I’m sure this crazy shaped rock called Kannesteinen is quite famous and probably photographed a million times. Nevertheless I haven’t heard or seen of it until we stumbled over it by accident during our 2015 Norway trip. Once there, I decided to give it a try. As I climbed down to the water I realized […]
