Epic Light on Mallorca

March 22nd, 2020 | Behind the Shot, Landscape Photography

A few weeks ago I visited Mallorca for 10 days. Of those 10 days I stayed six days up in the North near the Formentor peninsula, and afterwards four days in the South near Ses Salines. During that time I went out to photograph sunrise and sunset nearly every day, while during the day I[…]

Photographing Colombia – Tayrona National Park

December 8th, 2019 | Behind the Shot, Landscape Photography

A visit to the Caribbean Coast of Colombia concluded our stay in this beautiful and diverse country.

As I started my hike after four hours of driving in Mittelberg the sun was burning. There were some clouds, but those only provided[…]

Mountain Photography in the Alps

July 3rd, 2019 | Behind the Shot, Landscape Photography

It’s summer, which means it’s finally time for some overnighters in the Alps again. When it’s hot down in the valleys, it’s just great to breathe some fresh mountain air while enjoying a spectacular view. The only problem with such trips into the Alps for me is that I only have time at the weekend[…]
