homage to the redwoods
The redwood species contains the largest and tallest trees in the world. These trees can live for thousands of years. It was a short but fascinating walk through this wonder of mother nature. I still feel deeply impressed by the elegance of these majestic trees surviving lots of our generations. Lets take care of them and hope they will live thousands years more on earth!

Morning mist...
On our drive to Assynt we passed this beautiful area with a wonderful cover of early morning mist in the valley. We had to stop and take some photos of it, but a few minutes later the mist was gone and mystery away.

Rhue Lighthouse
A sunset shooting at Rhue Lighthouse. It took us several hours to get the final shots of this lighthouse shooting. The light changed every minute by the fast movements of the clouds.

Caminito del Rey
El Caminito del Rey (The King's Little Path) is a walkway, pinned along the steep walls of a narrow gorge in El Chorro, near Ardales in the province of Málaga, Spain. The name derives from the original name of Camino del Rey (King's Pathway), abbreviated locally to el caminito. The walkway had fallen into disrepair and was partially closed for over a decade. After four years of extensive repairs and renovations, the walkway re-opened in 2015. It has been known in the past as the "world's most dangerous walkway" following five deaths in 1999 and 2000.

Ronda, Anadalucía

City View - Big Apple
A few days as a stopover in Big Apple gave some good impressions of the city. But a few days is not enough to experience this area. After one week you know where to go to, where to take your shots, but nevertheless I tried to give an impression of this vibrant, helpful and intersting city.

Cherry Blossom easter eggs
During a sunrise in Fraxern, Austria. The sun came up the mountain and glowed into the tree for about 20 min. After that the sky got muddy with Sahara sand in the air and the glow of the 3 trees got disolved.

heavy load
A tour which was in two ways surprising.... first it was snowing that heavily that my backpack with the camera gear got covered with snow each time I took the camera out of the backpack. And second I found out that my lens is defect ... it stucks at 14mm and as you see is not sharp in the left area.

White dreams
Snow impressions from Sonnenkopf / AT. The avalanche risk was still high at level 3, but at the high and plain elevations of Sonnenkopf it was safe to walk around and enjoy the views. With snow heights of 3m were really heavy to walk through even with snowshoes and furthermore at -12°C with a nice wind blowing. But it was a great experience in nature..
2019
Winter Wonderland
The day started grey and cloudy and was most of the time like this. Nevertheless it was a winter day and the weather forecast says melting temperatures for the next days... so it was "a must" to go out and get some impressions of the first days of winter 2019. Hope you like it!

A different view...
A different time at the same place trying different exposures and different grayfilters. A lot of people asked me, how can you do a long exposure with the sun still that bright? But it was the perfect place for experiments and it looks some people got inspired :-)

Fight with the clouds...
Cleared up for minutes... A view from Fronalpstock down to Lake Lucerne and Lake Zug. It was a sunny day, but the top of Fronalpstock was always covered with heavy clouds so there was nearly no way to look down to the lakes. I waited nearly 2 hours for the sky to clear up a little bit and finally I got a slot of 3 minutes where the sky opened. After that I was glad when I could see something for the next 20 meters.

Wild fires
I think this is a view which lot of view might know, but it looks much different normally. At least the photos which I have seen from this place looked totally different. It's a mountain view in Grand Teton National Park at Jenny Lake, but actually you are glad, when you can see the mountains at all. The big fires in California and the northern parts of the USA cover the landscape in mist and smoke. This was a moment of a little clearer view, at the morning I could more or less only see some shadows of the mountains. I hoped for some colorviews during sunset or sunrise, but even during this time it didn't change, perhaps it got touched in a little more earthy or muddy tones. But such is the photographers life.... you have to stick with what you find in that moment. So as a result I did a photo of the Grand Tetons which is in this way very unusual..

Inspired by some very good fine art photographys from Richard Terpolillis I made a first step into this kind of workflow and came out with a result that at least I wanted to achieve when I looked at the untreated color version of it.

Ice Age
This series was taken the last day before the Silvretta High Alpine Road got closed for winter. It was a wonderful sunny day, freezing cold in the morning and much warmer over the day and the last chance to go to this place for this year. We had expected some more snow, but the ice floes were a good compensation. It was fascinating and a little scary hearing the drone of the cracking ice plates. A sound I've never heard before and which was much louder as I had expected it to be.

After the blue hour.....
A shot I did at nearly complete darkness. Only a little light between the clouds was available. We were on our way down the mountain and had hoped to arrive at our alpin hut with some light, but this view forced us to give up our earlier plans and take some shots with rest of the available light . For the walk down the mointain we then had to use our flashlights.
