Travel Plans | Where should I go?
Weather is rainy and I have time to plan one of my next photo trips. The plan is to discover France and a small part of the Italian Coast. Here are my current plans but good photo locations and tips are welcome. :)

Alpine Landscape | Tirol, Austria
BEST VIEWED LARGE - English description is below

~~~~ Deutsch ~~~~
Dieses Bild konnte ich vor einiger Zeit im schönen Wipptal bei Matrei am Brenner aufnehmen. Nachdem ich wiedermal, wie sooft ziemlich spät dran war, konnte ich gerade noch die letzten Sonnenstrahlen nützen.


~~~~ English ~~~~
This one is a bit older. I took the shot in the Wipptal valley in Tirol, Austria. One more time, I was quite late at this location, but I could use the last sun rays quite well and I really like the light I got there.

Pertisau | Tirol, Austria

~~~~ DEUTSCH ~~~~
Habe gerade bemerkt, dass ich die 20.000 Follower-Marke hier auf Google+ geknackt habe. Vielen Dank an Alle für's Folgen, Ansehen, Kommentieren und Teilen meiner Fotos. Ich hoffe dieses Bild gefällt euch auch. :)
Auf diesem Foto ist Pertisau am Abend zu sehen und im Vordergrund sorgt der Achensee für schöne Reflexionen.
Diese Aufnahme hatte ich schon etwas länger geplant, konnte das Foto aber nie machen, da ich auf Schnee und passendes Wetter ca. 3 Monate warten musste.


~~~~ English ~~~~
I just reached 20.000 followers, so at first thank you to all my followers for the likes, comments and shares. I hope you will also enjoy my work in future.
This photo was a bit challenging because I had to wait for about 3 month to do this shot. I had to wait for snow quite long this winter, and I also needed to wait for good weather.
But finally I could do this one. Well I'm not completely satisfied, because I planed to shoot from a different position, but due to snow I wasn't able to drive there. So I had to change my plans a little.

Geysir | Iceland
~~~~ Deutsch  ~~~~ (scroll down for English Version)
Hatte etwas Zeit um meine Bilder von Island durchzusehen. Dabei bin ich auf dieses Bild vom Geysir Strokkur gestolpert. Ursprünglich hatte ich dieses Bild schon aussortiert, da ich mich normalerweise mehr auf Motive die noch nicht so bekannt sind, zu konzentrieren versuche. Inzwischen bin ich aber mit dem Bild doch recht zufrieden, daher zeige ich das Bild doch noch her. Ich hoffe, dass es euch gefällt. :-)

~~~~ English ~~~~ 
I had some time to go through my older Iceland shots from 2013. So I discovered this image, I had sorted it out but now I'm quite happy with the image. Even though it is a very classic and well known picture and I normally try to avoid such images.

Santa Maddalena | Alto Adige, Italia
BEST VIEWED LARGE - English description is below

~~~~ Deutsch ~~~~
Letztes Wochenende wollten wir 2 Bilder machen, die ich schon länger im Kopf hatte. Leider hat das nicht ganz geklappt. Mein erstes Motiv wäre ein See gewesen, allerdings hatte ich bei meiner Recherche nicht darauf geachtet, dass dieser See auf 1600m Seehöhe liegt. Daher hab ich einen zugefrorenen See und ca. einen Meter hohe Schneewände, neben der Straße vorgefunden.
Aber zumindest hat dann mein zweites geplantes Motiv geklappt. Sankt Magdalena am Fuß der Dolomiten erreichten wir am späten Nachmittag. Es war teilweise bewölkt, zwischen den Wolken kam die Sonne immer wieder durch und kreierte eine interessante, sich ständig verändernde Licht/Schatten-Stimmung. Ich hoffe, dass euch das Bild gefällt.


~~~~ English ~~~~
I had planed to shoot two locations last weekend. My first location should have been a lake in the mountains, but unfortunately it was still frozen and there where about 1 meter high snow walls beside the street. Now I know the lake's sea-level is about 1600 meter. Learning of the day: I should consider the sea-level next time. ;-)
The second location was Santa Maddalena in front of the iconic Dolomites. This shot worked quite well. We had some nice light, which was continuously changing due to some fast moving clouds. So I could get quite nice lights and shadows. I hope you will like the shot too.

Garður Lighthouse | Iceland
BEST VIEWED LARGE - English description is below
~~~~ Deutsch ~~~~
Nachdem ich in den letzten Wochen leider krank war und aktuell noch ziemlich viel Zeit zum planen meiner nächsten Fototouren aufwende, poste ich heute ein, bis jetzt noch nicht veröffentlichtes Foto vom letzten Jahr.
Auf dem Bild ist der Leuchtturm von Gardur zu sehen.Der Leuchtturm befindet sich nicht allzuweit von Reykjavik entfernt und ist meiner Meinung nach, vorallem bei Ebbe ein super Fotomotiv.
Praktisch ist auch, dass wir direkt beim Leuchtturm einen Stellplatz für unseren Campingbus hatten. So konnten wir direkt vor dem Leuchtturm übernachten und auf Ebbe warten. 


~~~~ English ~~~~
It's a while since my last post, but I had to recover from a illness and I had and still have a lot to plan for our next photo trips. So this is an older photo from last year. 
On the photo there is the lighthouse at Gardur in Iceland. It's quite close to Reykjavik and a great place to take photos. Especially at low tide, I enjoyed it very much.
Another great detail was that we where able to park our camping van directly at this spot. So we could sleep directly in front of the lighthouse and had perfect conditions in the morning.

Große Raubmöwe | Island
BEST VIEWED LARGE - Scroll down for English text.
~~~~ DEUTSCH ~~~~
Kollision in der Luft
Normalerweise konzentriere ich mich mehr auf Landschaftsfotos, falls sich aber mal die Gelegenheit bietet versuche ich mich auch mal an Tieren. In diesem Fall waren wir in Island mit +Einar Sigurdsson, in einem abgelegenen Gebiet um Vögel zu fotografieren.
Einar kennt das Gebiet und die Vögel sehr gut und hat auch immer darauf geachtet, dass wir die Tiere nicht stören.
Um dorthin zu kommen muss man zuerst einen relativ tiefen Fluss durchqueren. Wir hatten das mit einem Traktor gerade so geschafft. Aber dafür wird man mit mit einem nahezu unberührten Naturgebiet belohnt.
In diesem Gebiet brüten unter anderem Papageientaucher und Große Raubmöwen.

Auf den Bild sieht man zwei großen Raubmöwen, die gerade Ihre Nester verteidigen. Allerdings scheint ein Vogel dem anderen zu nahe gekommen zu sein. Auf dem Bild sieht man wie ein Vogel vom anderen vertrieben wird und die Flucht ergreift. Kurz vor der Aufnahme waren beide sogar in der Luft kollidiert.
Diese Vögel haben übrigens eine Flügelspannweite von 125 bis 140 cm - sind also daher nicht so ganz klein. ;-)


~~~~ English ~~~~
Great Skua Collision | Iceland
Normally I concentrate more on landscape photos, but If I get the opportunity I try to do some animal shots as well, just for fun. So we tried to do some animal shots with our guide +Einar Sigurdsson.
It's quite difficult to get to this area, because we had to pass a quite deep river, to get to this remote area.
On the photo there are two Great Skuas who where defending there nests. A second before the shot was taken these two birds collided in the air, and one got banished by the other one.

Jökulsarlon | Iceland
BEST VIEWED LARGE - Scroll down for English text.
~~~~ DEUTSCH ~~~~
Nachdem heute der lang erwartete Schnee gekommen ist, hab ich mal ein bisschen in meinem Archiv gekramt und ein passende  Bild von meiner letzten Island-Reise herausgesucht.

Die Gletscherlagune Jökulsarlon gehört zu den absoluten Top Attraktionen in Island. In dieser Lagune sammeln sich kleinere Eisschollen und Eisberge die vom Gletscher Breiðamerkurjökull abbrechen.

Bei dem Foto hab ich versucht durch eine etwas längere Belichtungszeit Bewegungen von Eis und Wasser einzufangen. Gleichzeitig sieht man durch das klare Gletscherwasser bis zum Grund der Lagune.
Ich hoffe dass euch das Bild gefällt.

~~~~ English ~~~~
This photo was taken during my last year's Icelandtrip at Jökulsárlón. I tried to capture the floating water and the movement of the smaller pieces of ice. I tried also to capture the clearity of the water. 
I hope you will like this one.
