Amazing red colored sunset over the glacier of Morteratsch. I started shooting black and white shots that evening, because of the bad light conditions. But suddenly the clouds high over the glacier turned into a deep saturated red color. I quickly changed my composition and was lucky to capture this light spectacle.

Ein unglaublicher roter Sonnenuntergang über den Morteratschgletscher. Ich war gerade dabei wegen des schlechten Lichts Schwarz/Weiß Fotos zu schießen, als plötzlich die Wolken hoch über dem Gletscher anfingen rot zu glühen. Ich änderte schnell meine Bildkomposition und konnte so das unglaubliche Farbspiel einfangen.

One of the last big storm cloud of that evening is moving across the coast of Elgol and divides the sky into a cloudy and cloudless part.

It was one of the most amazing sunrise I've ever seen. Unfortunately I only had my compact camera with me, a Panasonic Lumix LX3, and not the big DSLR. Together with a little tripod I took three photos in a row in order to capture the whole dynamic range of the scenery. The resulting full resolution image is somewhat noisy (not visible here), but I'm very impressed with the result that came out of this little cam.

A stranded branch from nowhere - the rain, water and wind formed interesting patterns around this little branch.

Sand dunes formed by the strong winds at the beach. The light of the very low positioned sun created beautiful patterns and structures in the sand.

Shot on my way to work on a cool October morning. The mist over the water cleared very quickly with the rising sun, which brought the flowers in the foreground to shine.

Just next to the walking path to the Cullin Mountains, this little gorge accompanies the hiker. I didn't walked much further than this point and enjoyed the beautiful view with the mountains in the background.

Near to Neist Point, Isle Of Skye, Scotland

I was wondering about the dead sheep I found at the coast near to Neist Point. From what I know, animals searches for a quiet place to die when they feel that the end is near. This sheep, however, lied just in the middle of the grass. It seemed to me that this was an immediate death. This can happen to all of us at any time. You cannot be sure that you will the next minute. Death is instantaneous - as same as live is. Live the moment.

Ich wunderte mich über das tote Schaf, dass ich an der Küste in der Nähe des Neist Points entdeckt hatte. Soweit ich weiß, suchen Tiere einen ruhigen Platz zum sterben, wenn sie merken, dass ihre Zeit gekommen ist. Bei diesem Schaf schien es jedoch anderes gewesen zu sein und es lag mitten auf dem Gras. Es schien fast so, als ob es von Jetzt auf Gleich gestorben ist. Dies kann uns allen passieren. Du kannst Dir nicht sicher sein, dass Du die nächste Minute erleben wirst. Der Tod passiert im Augenblick - genauso wie das Leben. Lebe den Augenblick.

It was an evening with magical light. I took that shot just a few minutes before the sun vanished behind some clouds.
On the top of the rocks on the right side, there's a banana plantation, as nearly everywhere at the west coast. Sometimes it's not possible to hide such things when taking a photo.Photo: The Majestic Waterfall

After a rainy day we decided to visit the pass between Lærdal and Aurland again. Just before sunset the sky cleared a bit, so that the sun had a chance to paint the sky in beautiful colors.

Nach einem sehr regnerischen Tag entschlossen wir uns noch einmal die Passstraße zwischen Lærdal und Aurland zu fahren. Kurz vor Sonnenuntergang klarte der Himmel auf und gab der Sonne für einen kurzen Moment die Möglichkeit die Wolken in schönen Farben zu tauchen.

I entitled this photo "forgotten world" because of the mystic feeling I get when looking at this photo. The rock in the foreground reminds me to a head of a dinosaur or dragon, lying there for thousands of years.



Ich wählte den Titel "Forgotten Beach" - also "der vergessene Strand", da für mich der Strand auf diesem Foto sehr geheimnisvoll aussieht. Der große Felsblock im Vordergrund erinnert mich an einen Dinosaurier oder Drachenkopf, der bereits tausende von Jahren dort herumliegt.

At the Brittany coast, the vegetation nearly reaches the sea - together with the little bays, which are nicely framed by some rocks, the landscape has an exotic touch.
