The Alps - rocky cliffs and bizarre mountains next to crystal clear lakes and fresh flowering meadows. The Slovenian Triglav National Park still contains some jungle-like forests topped with turquoise creeks and waterfalls. Even in mid-June I sometimes had to struggle with waist-deep snow. But spending only one solitary night under the starry sky, all hardships are forgotten.
Paradisiacal islands in the Indian Ocean. Besides beautiful and palm fringed beaches, breathtaking rock formations I could explore the tropical rainforest in the mountainous interior. Despite the rainy season, I was gifted with almost every twilight phase with unique lighting. Enjoy the break!
In early February 2013, I was allowed to photograph the rugged beauty of the Lofoten, an island-chain crisscrossed by fjords and 1000 m high mountains beyond the Arctic Circle.
