Last week I went to a frozen lake to take some aerial shots from the shore line. I was really surprised when I saw the structure of the ice surface from above. I did a visual study of the ice patterns. It looks like some detail shots and they are in a way but of a bigger scale then you might guess. All shots where taken from around 100 meter above the surface. The distance from left the right is about 80 meter.
Winter is unveiling some interesting structures in cultivated landscapes. This is my first aerial photo series, showing reforestation in it’s earlier stadium at a tree nursery farm.
Worked on a new photo series »misty mountains« shot during a foggy week in the bavarian alps.
This year I went on a trip to the balearen islands in the mediterranen sea. It was my first time there and I was really surprised about the beauty of landscape they offer. Now as the days are getting shorter I find time to process to output to a new photo series.
For half a year I’ve been planing and researching for some new kind of photography. Finally I found a solution, that suits my standards in photography. Now I’m exploring a new perspective on landscape photography with a very graphical approach.
A few days ago I went again hiking in the swiss »Alpstein Gebirge«. I started at 4pm and reached the summit of »Hoher Kasten« just before sunset. Looking down from about 1.800 meter into the valley and across the shieling was a very calm experience.
Today I took my bike on a ride around the north shore of lake Bodensee, Germany and the camera on the back. The greens are very vivid right now and the leaves are light so that a lot of light is going through. Just perfect for capturing some german forest scenery.
On Tuesday I went to the Alpstein region in Switzerland. I knew that there had been the first snow for the winter so I wanted to make my way up to a summit the take photos of the mountain ridge during sunset.
As I got there I recognized that the snow was much more than I expected. The trail up to the summit was completely covered with 40-50cm snow and they took down all the signage. Luckily enough somebody walked my way a day before. Otherwise you would have been just lost. It was quit a hustle to make the 1000 meters altitude and I didn’t make it to the summit I wanted to because the snow was to high and therefore to dangerous. But I went to another hut called „Äscher“ which was located beneath a 120 meter high cliff. The view to the Seealpsee down in the valley was stunning and paid all the effort off.
In August I spent some days in the southern part of Norway. I was mainly traveling along the coast from Bergen to Trondheim and did some detours into the fjords. Weatherwise we got perfect conditions for hiking and camping so we could do some spectacular dusks and dawns in the fjords. I just uploaded a new project „Norway“ with some impressions of the journey.
I just returned from a photo trip to the US. Did a couple of thousand miles exploring some of the finest national parks I’ve seen so far.
There are some stunning projects to come! This one is from Arizona.
I just added a new project to my studio portfolio. It’s all about the aesthetic of sliced vegetables and fruits. I was fascinated by the colour, structure and shape, why I decided to take a series of it. You’ll find this project in the studio section.
My photo series about Iceland is making progress. There a still quite a few photos which need a hand on.
This one is close the the ring road around Iceland, in the southern part where the glaciers are located.
I’m working on a new photo series of the Iceland highlands. It shows the bizarre, spacious and unreal terrains of an very young Island. Some Shots are already processed. I’m guessing to display it on my portfolio during the next weeks.
