Autumnal Impressions

On the mountains the changes of autumn can already be seen…

 

 

 

Awakening Nature

Strolling through a forest in spring is always inspiring, especially when you look at nature with a macro lens. These are some of my experiments…

Country of the Master Painters

 

Most Europeans travel to Amsterdam once or twice when they are young for obvious reasons.
I have never been to the capital of the Netherlands before, which I kind of regret.

The city is really  charming and a paradise for lovers of fine art.

Besides whole museums devoted to master painters like Rembrandt and Van Gogh, you will find a beautiful idyllic landscape with windmills and green pastures, which makes it easy to imagine how this country has been a source of inspiration for the most skillful artists ever.

New Close-ups

Since I got myself a Christmas present, a new macro lens for my camera, I couldn’t wait to try it out as soon as possible…

 

 

Fall at the Lake

There is a small town situated at a dark and deep lake in the middle of Austria. If you visit this town called Hallstatt, you will find a most idyllic place, preserved and protected from the changes of time.

Try to visit it late in the day to avoid the tourist buses and walk the small path above the main lake esplanade, then you might still catch the mystic beauty of this place.

 

 

Lost Horizon Country

Nepal is a country of extremes. Snow-capped mountain ranges, tropical jungles, lush vegetation during monsoon season, colourful prayer flags flying in the wind – impressions even the experienced traveller will never forget…

Alpine Beauty

Hiking in the “Dachstein” region is just amazing – no wonder this part of Austria belongs to the world heritage sites. And if you´re not into hiking, you simply take the cable car uphill…

 

Rainy Day at the Lakeside

There is a beautiful little village at the “Traunsee”, called “Traunkirchen”, which I like to visit all year round.

Although it’s very nice there in summer, when you enjoy the cool breeze from the cold lake, only on a rainy day you will find this kind of mystical atmosphere…
