'i cannot help but feel so small when standing in front of those massive mountains. helps me get things in perspective.'
Seceda sunburst, Dolomites (Italy)
It was tough to get up there from the hut we stayed the night at. But it was all worth it. This pano is a great memory of an unforgettable and very cold sunrise.
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.
Hamnøy aurora (Lofoten Norway)
One of the most beautiful places in the world: the view from the bridge at Hamnøy, Lofoten. It was a special night when the aurora danced making this place even more special.
the teeth of the Dolomites (Italy)
Hard to imagine that these almost 3.000 m high fabled mountains had been a coral reef more than 200 million years ago. Impressively to watch those mountains with clouds hanging in them inside the deep rising sun.
Drei Zinnen and a bush, Dolomites (Italy)
The iconic peaks of Tre Cime (or Drei Zinnen) are probably the most photographed mountains in the Dolomites. Can you tell why?
Alpe di Siusi dusk, Dolomites (Italy)
The ever impressive view at Seiser Alm, Dolomites. I guess this place never disappoints no matter what time of day.
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.
Seiser morning, Alpe di Siusi (Italy)
Pure eye candy: the Seiser Alm or Alpe di Siusi how it is called in Italian. The majestic peaks of Langkofel complete the sight with those beautiful valleys and lone trees.
Starkregen, Monte Pic Dolomites (Italy)
While I was waiting to photograph the sunset at Seceda I noticed dramatic rain clouds come in and soak the mountain in the valley below. Through cracks in the clouds the sun came through providing some warm, yet dramatic light.
Drei Zinnen starry sunrise, Dolomites (Italy)
One of the most unforgettable sunrises I have ever witnessed. In front of the majestic peaks of Drei Zinnen with the last stars of the night twinkling in the sky.
Lago di Braies (Italy)
Some say this lake has changed its name to Lago di Instagram because of the dizzying number of images from there. That aside: this place is simply gorgeous and symbol for mountain life beauty.
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.
shapes, Dolomites (Italy)
There was a short moment when the late afternoon sun made its way through the thick clouds during my hike along the Drei Zinnen peaks. The soft light beautifully highlighted the valley and the rocks. Mountain beauty: rough but gorgeous.
smokey Zinnen, Tre Cime (Italy)
The icon of the Dolomites: Drei Zinnen, or Tre Cime as it is called in Italian. This mountain is as impressive as one thinks. I was in complete awe when the iconic peaks were finally revealed by the clouds.
Hintersee blue, Berchtesgaden (Germany)
A panorama shoot of the late blue hour during an unforgettable morning at this beautiful lake.
Seceda gold, Dolomites (Italy)
Demanding to hike up there but a more than rewarding view across the mountain peaks: Seceda.
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.
Twilight and trees, Hintersee Berchtesgaden (Germany)
A rather ghosty mood at the ever calm Hintersee.
The beauty of Villnöss, Val di Funes (Italy)
The layers and framing are the real treat in this shot of the Alpenglow at Geisslerspitzen above the small chapel San Giovanni. Actually it wasn't that easy to find the best angle to shoot. But I am happy with this this one after climbing a field to gain some height to shoot.
hell´s pretty garden, Dolomites (Italy)
The early morning light caresses the rough mountain peaks of the Dolomites. I took this shot while waiting for the sunlight to hit the peaks of Tre Cime.
