Bamburgh Castle, Northumberland

Bamburgh Castle, Northumberland

On my second visit at Bamburgh I shot this picture not long after sunrise. It shows Bamburgh Castle as seen from the rocks near the golf court a little to the north. The clouds broken by some sun beams made this interesting light.

Northern lights at Jökulsárlón, Iceland

Northern lights at Jökulsárlón, Iceland

In wintertime chances are quite good to see northern lights in Iceland. It was one of the most impressive things I could ever enjoy in nature. There are no words that can describe this phenomenon, pictures don't really show its true nature, you just have to see it with your own eyes.

Barley field

In densly populated countries like Switzerland agriculture and nature reserves border on each other. As a consequence there are often conflicts. Nonetheless a look to the other side is sometimes very attractive.

Reflections

Reflections

The view up would have shown some trees with nice foliage and blue sky. On the contrary thanks to the view down a picture with several layers came out, consisting of the reflection and the highlights on the water. This photo was taken during a session with frogs at the Rohrer Schachen near Aarau, Switzerland.

More stars than our eyes can see...

More stars than our eyes can see...

People living in cities are often excited seeing just one star in the skye above. If you ever go to an area in the high mountains or in the desert, far away from any civilization, you might suddenly realize that our planet Earth or our star Sun are just one among many many others. The number of stars you may see is uncountable, and just belong to the Milky Way, our galaxy. And although they are uncountable they are just one corn of sand on the beach of our universe.

Sunrise above the Pre-Alps

Sunrise above the Pre-Alps

A unexpected sight of the mountain Säntis. I have to admit that I was hoping for or even expecing a sensational sunrise that morning, but I did not expect at all to see Säntis. That was a big surprise. On this picture I could finally fulfill my desire of layered mountain ranges with graduated intensity. To achieve this kind of picture you need to be at the right place at the right time, there is no other way.

Glarus Thrust

Glarus Thrust

In the center of the UNESCO world nature heritage there is the village of Elm, well known because of the ex skier Vreni Schneider, the lemonade named after the village and the Martinsloch. Later can be seen on this picture in dramatic light.

Lonelyness

Lonelyness

Steep rocks surround the narrow piece of soil where these three trees stand agains the forces of nature. A little family with no real perspectives, ready to fall any moment because of snow, storm or rock fall. And still: The do what they have to - life

Nebelstimmung

Nebelstimmung

Frühmorgens bin mit dem Auto an den Belchen gefahren, um dann feststellen zu müssen, dass die Bergstrasse ein einzig Eisfeld ist. Also einfach eine andere Strasse rauf auf den nächsten Pass und dann halt zu Fuss etwas weiter laufen. Auf dem Weg zur Belchenflue ging bereits die Sonne auf, das Lichtspiel im Nebelmeer über dem Mittelland war wunderschön.

Mountains in Costa Rica

When spending my holidays in Costa Rica in 2008 I climbed Chirripó. It is the highest mountain of Costa Rica. In the early morning when starting the trek the surrounding mountains presented themselves as shown on the picture.

Blaue Stunde auf der Ramsflue

Nach dem Sonnenuntergang nutzte ich die vorherrschenden Winde, um eine interessante Langzeitbelichtung des Abendhimmels zu realisieren.

Sonnenblumenfeld

So schnell und spontan wie dieses Photo habe ich noch selten eines gemacht: Sitze im Zug zwischen Lyss und Bern, fahren in Bahnhof ein, die Türe geht auf und draussen sehe ich dieses Bild. Also packe ich so schnell wie möglich die Kamera aus dem Rucksack, renne zur Türe, fokusiere, drücke ab und die Türe geht wieder zu.

Avenue du Baobab, Madagascar

Although this picture was declined by the agencies: For me it is one of the most beautiful pictures I have ever taken. One of the most picturesque places on this planet, and suddenly there is a biker riding his way. It represents how simple life is in Madagascar.
