The Beauty of Nature

Alpine Huts

This day indeed was special as I wanted to scout a couple of locations that I had discovered before. So, we drove there and hiked to a couple of spots to check if there’s a scenic and/or interesting composition around. By chance it happened that we went for a walk with some friends afterwards. And while we were walking along this alm and having a good chat, I discovered this composition that immediately caught my attention.

Lonesome Borders

We started a nice hike on a yet unknown track. The path on the map looked promising, the weather was forecast to be sunny, slightly hazy, not too warm, … ideal hiking conditions! The first part of the track was along a forest road – nothing really special. But later on the views were just amazing.

Wild Isar Valley

The valley in the upper part of the Isar river is not just a nature protection zone but also one of the last areas where the river is kept wild – as much as possible. And in some parts it holds some unique views ..

Practicing for rain

“There’s no such thing as bad weather, just the wrong gear”
For photography “bad weather” conditions can be attractive! Dark clouds can add drama, rivers and creeks have more water than usual and the visibility might be lower than in clear bright sky. But are you really prepared for all the circumstances?

Misty Trees

I usually don’t go out a lot during rain – neither for hiking nor for photography. But this time it paid off to go out and look for foggy scenes in the forests!

The winding Bridge

I’ve seen the bridge various times in the past decades – usually in commercials from above. This S-curve just gives such a nice dynamic mood with mountains, forest and lake around. Not too long ago, I tried to do my own shots of the bridge. – And I realized that it’s not as easy as I expected!
