Gentle roughness part II

Tuesday, 14 August 2018

It's time for some more photographs of Corsica's landscapes. I took these images back in May during a two weeks trip on the island which provides lots of different and very beautiful places with countless wonderful views of unaffected land. Enjoy.

Amazing coastlines made of red rocks high above the sea illumintated by the warm setting sun.

Have you ever touched a Cork Oak? The softness of the bark of these trees is really fascinating and special.

On Corsica's coasts some wonderful shaped and patterned rock formations can be found.

Red rock covered in yellow lichens make a great foreground in front of some still snow coverd mountains.

One can find wild herbs almost everywhere on the island. Like rosemary bushes in the size of a car, for example.

Just one of the countless crystal clear and refreshing montane streams.

Already on the first morning I discovered this shore made of this lovely rocks.

I just love how this fallen tree turned into a natural well.

I was out this evening looking for mouflons unsuccessfully. So I ended up enjoying the great landscape.

Gentle roughness part I

Saturday, 4 August 2018

I know the final third set of my last series is still missing. But since I took a lot of new images in the meantime, which actually also belong to these sets, I decided to continue later. Today I would like to start with the first images of the beuatiful Corsican landscapes. Sabine an me, we spent about two weeks there in May exploring the rocky island. Although the coastlines are also pretty lovely we seemed to enjoy the hinterlands even more. Actually I didn't expect so many stunning montane sceneries, crystal clear creeks and unaffected terrain. And we almost always easily found a place to spend the night, so we could just stay wherever we liked. Especially one of our first destinations, the Asco Valley, really impressed us a lot with its wonderful montane streams, rough rocky mountains and gorgreous pine trees. Without much effort we found numerious untouched spots, which at least gave the impression that there has never been anybody before.

This area actually reminded me of Patagonia. Rough untouched mountain sceneries in each direction.

Another, probably more popular, mountain area, called Col de Bavella. We experienced, and deeply enjoyed, numerious pretty wet hikes on the island.

Taken already during our first morning on Corsica. Crazy shaped and patterned eroded coastal rocks.

We got soaking wet quite a few times, but there's hardly anything better than a drenched montane scenery in spring after some heavy rain.

Asco Valley again. What a delightful morning this was. We also had our first encounter with mouflons there.

Everything you can ask for.

There are so many natural pools which are extremely inviting to take a bath.

The yellow lichens make the purple colored rocks even more fascinating.

Depending on the area the moutains and rocks of Corsica can look quite different. But they actually always look great.

Corsica definitely doesn't disappoint when it comes to stunning mountain vistas. And the, on islands actually quite common, changeable and often dramatic weather conditions make these settings even more exciting. So stay tuned for more. I hope some of you will check back here later again for the next few images of the Corsican landaces.

Home of the birds part II

Thursday, 28 June 2018

I prepared three series of images which contain new spring pictures of the Neusiedler See - Seewinkel National Park. Two of them are bird only and as you can see this is the second one. Although I was only out a few times, this spring sessions were actually quite productive for me. As mostly I was just wandering around with my telephoto lens looking what will come my way. For me the most pleasant kind of photography. So I'm already looking forward to my upcoming trips into this area.

Actually I would love to write longer articles in my blog entries, because there are so many stories behind all these images, but unfortunately I just cannot find the time. So at least I basically decide to show some of the new photographs without losing much words. Hope you agree.

Home of the birds part II

The setting sun paints the skies while this little guy performs somewhere in the reed.

When the foliage gets lush again in spring, the birds are way more difficult to discover.

A Great Egret and Gray Geese with ducklings leery crossing each other in the shallow waters of Lake Neusiedl.

One of the most beautiful and rarest birds of Austria.

Low water levels because of the heat and drought druing this late spring.

A Blue Heron hunting in great evening light.

What a romantic morning ;)

Picking up foreign feathers for the own nest.

Definitely one of my favorite birds but mostly very well hidden in the trees.
