Golden morning, Hintersee Berchtesgaden (Germany)
Golden morning, Hintersee Berchtesgaden (Germany)It took a while after sunrise until the sunlight made it onto those trees on the rocks. But than it made for an amazing view with a perfect reflection.

Bastei (Germany)
Bastei (Germany)The classic view at Bastei bridge in Elbsandsteingebirge, Germany, in soft morning light.
Rakotzbrücke (Germany)
Rakotzbrücke (Germany)I thought I add something different to a shot that has been taken a million times already. So I threw a stone.
Hintersee night, Berchtesgaden (Germany)
Hintersee night, Berchtesgaden (Germany)I was still inside the water with my wellies when the moon threw a beautiful light onto the scene that had a ghostly feel with the twinkling stars and moving clouds. The artificial lights of the hotel troubled me until I had the idea to capture a lighttrail of a moving car to balance the artificial light of the hotels. I think it worked out pretty good with natural and artificial light well balanced, yet separated, in the shot. 
quiet beauty, Ammersee (Germany)
quiet beauty, Ammersee (Germany)it was an unforgettable night at Ammersee, Bavaria Germany. I found a very quiet place all for myself to shoot sunset and later into the night. If you need to cleanse your soul, that´s the way.

Rügen sunset, Dranske (Germany)After a thunderstorm the sky cleared up and gave way for a gorgeous sunset with a still raging sea.
Usedom sunrise, Heringsdorf (Germany)
Usedom sunrise, Heringsdorf (Germany)One of my first sunrise shootings. A beautiful and ever so quiet morning at the jetty of Heringsdorf. 
Zingst (Germany)
Zingst (Germany)Zingst was the last stop on my short baltic trip in 2016. That day at the beach of Zingst meant relaxing mainly. But oh well, a shot or two...
Geroldsee sunrise (Germany)
Geroldsee sunrise (Germany)a gorgeous sunrise at the stunning landscape of Geroldsee, Bavaria (Germany). That was the kick-off to my tour through the Alps.
Königssee layers (Germany)
Königssee layers (Germany)On the way back from Obersee at Berchtesgaden, Germany, I had my camera sitting on my lap while the boat slowly made its way across Koenigssee. I sat inside and watched the beautiful mountain landscape pass. When a sunlit valley came up with that small hut underneath. I took the camera, waited until the different layers aligned and pressed the shutter. ...an unexpected but so nicely layered autumn shot.  
Hintersee sunset, Berchtesgaden (Germany)
Hintersee sunset, Berchtesgaden (Germany)This lake is one of my favorite spots in Germany: Hintersee. The calmness is breathtaking. As was this sunset with a perfect reflection in the calm water.
Hintersee blue, Berchtesgaden (Germany)
Hintersee blue, Berchtesgaden (Germany)A panorama shoot of the late blue hour during an unforgettable morning at this beautiful lake.
Twilight and trees, Hintersee Berchtesgaden (Germany)

Zauberwald falls, Berchtesgaden (Germany)
Zauberwald falls, Berchtesgaden (Germany)Zauberwald (Berchtesgaden), GermanyHintersee right behind that forest is well known and often photographed (from me as well). Surprisingly there are not so many shots from this gorgeous enchanted forest and its stream Ache. A real beauty with moss covered branches that make it appear like fallen out of time. 
Westerhever (Germany)
Westerhever (Germany)This is a composite of a shot I took at the North-Sea of Germany at Westerhever. I combined it with a sky-shot I had taken from outside my bathroom window.
Obersee hut, Berchtesgaden (Germany)
Obersee hut, Berchtesgaden (Germany)We took our time and enjoyed the area. Had something to drink and eat and waited out until the sun moved around the mountain peak. Then we started shooting this lovely spot that was nicely framed by the incredible reflection of the lake, the high mountains around and the autumn leaves.
Elbsandsteingebirge (Germany)
Elbsandsteingebirge (Germany)It is a special area in the very east of Germany: Elb sandstone mountains in Saxon Switzerland. I was hoping for low clouds when I photographed the sunrise. And luckily I got just that.
End of night (Germany)
End of night (Germany)After a heavy thunderstorm the night before the early morning greeted with a calm blue hour. Even the moon said "good morning" when I sat up my tripod to shoot this beautiful area. 
Bastei (Germany)
Bastei (Germany)It looks like straight out of a movie: Bastei at Saxon Switzerland. How fitting that a film team was there to shoot a scene while I was photographing the place. 
Epic poppies (Germany)
Epic poppies (Germany)I saw this impressive sunset sky, hurried outside and looked for the next best composition to capture this moment. This field of poppies not far from where I live made for a good foreground.
Lighthouse Westerheversand (Germany)
Lighthouse Westerheversand (Germany)A classic postcard shot from the German North-sea coast area.
Lichtenhainer waterfall
Lichtenhainer waterfallOne of the more hidden gems in Saxon Switzerland, Germany, is this waterfall. Kind of cranked into a corner in the midst of the rock, a house and a small beer garden. Makes it very accessible but also a little less impressive.Until you play around with long exposures and nice light. Then this waterfall comes to life and shows its original beauty.
