On a fairly warm, early autumn day in the valley near the Partnach gorge, the surrounding peaks received their first dusting of the season. The transition of the seasons was in full swing in the Bavarian Alps, as illustrated in this view towards the King's House on Schachen (Königshaus am Schachen) and the Partenkirchener Dreitorspitze, a prominent 2,633m (8,638 ft) multi-peak in the Wetterstein mountain massif. The small castle, built by Ludwig II of Bavaria, can only be reached by a three to four hour hike. It's perched on ridge in front of the gap between the Dreitorspitze on the left and the Oberreintalschrofen on the right. (Someone please correct me if I got those peaks wrong!)

Here's the first image I want to share with you guys on G+ from my trip into Aigüestortes National Park in the Pyrenees.
I intentionally kept this on the dark and moody side, to accentuate the sky clearing after a heavy thunderstorm with hail and crazy wind gusts. I hope you enjoy this. More to come, should I actually have some time on my hands.

Stars over Canyonlands NP's iconic Mesa Arch during a full moon night, about an hour before the actual sunrise. Full moon nights, or nights with any moon can be tricky and you don't see as much stars due to the brightness of the moon in the night sky. In the desert however, far away from light pollution of the cities, even full moon nights can be worth photographing and the brightness provided by the moon creates a soft, even light across the landscape.

A thick layer of rime ice covers the highest branches in a stand of large beech trees, shortly after the sun climbed above an inversion layer on the German-Czech border.
I uploaded a short video of the beech trees making all kinds of dicey sounds, swaying in the wind; to my FB page. A very unsettling feeling, considering beech trees' tendency to drop large limbs under their own weight, even without wind and/or a thick layer of ice.
