Cheeky Pleasures

I was already pretty excited to spot that lovely wild bunny in this gorgeous back-lit-wildflower-sunrise-setting. But as I noticed, that two Hoopoes also appeared somewhere behind the little bank of sand, I knew I had to be prepared to press the shutter. Finally I got about two appealing frames of this experience. Image Details Location: […]

Beauty surrounds us

Beauty surrounds us

Austria’s largest nature reserve, the High Tauern National Park, really offers countless stunning landscapes, important habitats and mainly unaffected terrain, well worth to protect (from being degraded to a backdrop for tourism and livestock pasture).

A Narcissus at the edge of a forest during a sunny afternoon. Due to the Corona lockdown, so much more Narcissuses could be found this year, because the extensive harvestings for all the Narcissus festivals didn’t take place.

Essential Beat

Essential Beat

I can hardly think of anything more rewarding than spending some time in a forest like this. Meanwhile I was lucky enough to visit such places already for a few times, but (at least for me) I still think it’s impossible to pay them justice in a single image. You can definitely feel nature’s heartbeat […]
