Two perfectly aligned adult guanacos caught my eye in Chile’s Torres del Paine National Park. The animals are always very attentive and constantly watching out for pumas I guess. Since I really love capturing animals as silhouettes, I knew this might be a good chance for a lovely image. I decided to close the aperture […]

A classic view but still one of my favorite landscape vistas in Austria during one of the best conditions I experienced there so far. Actually I was out looking for orchids in late afternoon light about ten kilometers away from Lake Almsee and intended to return home in the evening but finally I found myself […]

Actually I was always fascinated by the tiny water deformations Water Striders create with their legs, because these deformations can cause really stunning reflections but I never payed enough attention to them.
