A new Day

An diesem Tag sollte auf den Lofoten die Sonne das erste mal seit vielen Wochen wieder über dem Horizont zu sehen sein. Das war ein fantastisches Erlebnis und kurz vor diesem Moment habe ich das als Gelegenheit genutzt mein erstes "Selfie" zu machen :) Gleichzeitig steht es auch dafür das man vor lauter Fotografieren einfach mal den Moment in sich aufsaugen und alles auf sich wirken lassen sollte :)

In diesem Sinne, schönen Tag euch allen! :)

the bend

Shot at one of the rare mornings on my trip when the weather was really fantastic. The sunrise/sunset/blue hour which is almost the same during this time of the Year (January) at the Arctic circle, lasts for around 4 hours between 10am and 2pm. On this day we had really luck and the weather god treated us well and we stayed at a beautiful location :) The real show was going on behind me while i shot this one, but this is the story of another picture :)

Have a great evening everybody!

Unfortunately i had not much time the last days to process the shots from my trip to the North. So while i start to process another Landscape shot, here you see our Rorbuer were we stayed the last few days on the Lofoten.

Leider hab ich momentan nicht viel Zeit zum bearbeiten der Bilder von meiner Reise in den Norden. Bis ich das nächste Landschaftsbild fertig habe, seht ihr hier unsere Rorbuer die für die letzten paar Tage unser Zuhause auf den Lofoten waren.

Enjoy your evening everybody!
Schönen Abend euch allen!

vanishing water

Taking a picture on the Lofoten without a Mountain in it is not simple. While i searched my folders i found one and thought it is worth showing you even if it`s not one of my favourites from my trip.
I was standing on a small rock, soaked by the rushing waves and i tried to capture the water during the retreat into the sea. After a while - half soaked shoes and frozen fingers later i was reasonably satisfied :)

I wish you all a great evening!

Wild Sea

What i really love about my recent trip to the North is that it is impossible to describe the feelings when you stand in the middle of that stunning Landscapes. I love to feel the Elements and the Power of Nature and that`s why i love Landscape Photography so much :) So even in the case some of the shots wouldn`t turn out good, the pictures in your head will stay there forever :)

Have a great Sunday everybody!

Lofoten Nights

Our plan was to chase the Northern Lights during the night, but unfortunately we hadn`t much luck with the weather. Mostly it was very cloudy.. but thats fine for me because my main goal was to explore the beautiful Lofoten with all the Mountains and Fjords. And here you can`t be disappointed :D This shot was taken at around 4:30pm and it was almost pitch dark, because the sun sets at 1:30pm at this period of the Year. So it was a real challenge to walk around searching for a composition with your head light and at the same time watching out that you don`t disturb the other guys while they shooting. We had a lot of fun :D

Have a great Sunday everybody!

Check out this stunning Shot from my buddy +Felix Inden! And please check out his Feed, too! He has a fantastic Portfolio! 

Please comment and +1 on his Post :)
"the roaring sea"
The ocean was very violent and the monochromous stormy sky really enhanced the scenery, so even out of camera it was a menacing and wild scenery, which i then tought would be a good base for the following processing.
These seascapes are my favourite form of photographing.
Combine a nice seascape with some epic mountains in the backdrop and i´m in heaven. On the other hand this form of photography really harms your equipment and put´s you in danger of ruining it all for one shot.
I guess i have been a fan of "no risk no fun" since my youth and so i enjoy it a lot, even if on a coastline like this in plain winter it can get quite cold lol.
Countless waves splashed over me and i think i should send my camera to service before i start the next travel in some weeks.

You can make me a happy photographer if you spread my work, i also appreciate your comments and questions and i have to say a massive 
THANK YOU GUYS for all the feedback and response from you in the last weeks. 
This way i really enjoy to send you on a visual trip to Lofoten islands :)

I send over some greetz to my friends +Arild Heitmann   and +Stian Klo   Photography who are at Lofoten right now with  +Lofotentours  - your local guide based phototour company for the arctic regions of this planet :)

Arctic Paradise

Finally i`m back on G+ and also from my recent trip to the Lofoten in Northern Norway. I expected much and i got even more! it was a real blast :D we had everything you could expect from a trip to the arctic circle in winter- snowstorms, hailshowers, sometimes freezing cold temperatures, Epic Locations and at one evening Northern Lights!. One whole day we were trapped in our cabins due a super strong storm.. so it was a real adventure :D

Anyways it was really hard to choose wich picture i should process first and so i thought i will give this one the go. The reason is, this was our Basecamp the first few days.

I hope you enjoy!

Dusk over Dettingen

At the moment there is really bad weather in South Germany. A good chance for digging into my harddrive for unprocessed shots. This was shot in August during a hike with my buddy to a Viewpoint near "Bad Urach" in South Germany. We had a great time up there talking about everything and drinking a Beer :)

A great weekend to all of you out there - cheers! :D
