Widescapes

Friday, 23 November 2018

Although I only create very few panorama images, I did a handful this year and I would also like to display some of them here. Sometimes the sceneries are just to big for one singel shot ... Since we only did one easy journey in 2018, all the images are either made in Austria or on Corsica, France. Of course all of them actually should be printed in large formats instead of being reduced to this tiny scale here ;)

This image shows a gorgeous sunrise in "my" wetlands in Upper Austria. Although this is the place I probably visited most often during the last couple of years, I only did a few landscape shots during this particular morning. All the other time I'm always looking for wildlife in this area.

I took this one just about a week back rather close to my home. November is the best time to experience fantastic sceneries like this one, when the sun breaks through the fog in the forest.

A world of green and red. We only could catch a glimpse to tise peak for one brief moment before it disappeared in the clouds again.

The rising sun finally hits the glaciers and the massive peak of Austria's highest mountain, Mount Großglockner, as a young Alpine Ibex climbes up into higher terrain for the upcoming day.

Sunset at the Gesäuse National Park in Styria, Austria. Due to the very dry conditions this summer and fall, the water level of the Enns River is pretty low and the colors of the fall foliage actually never popped up like usually.

We deeply enjoyed this hike in heavy rain, observing the fast moving clouds as we wandered through the lush greens of late spring.

An extremely pleasant sunrise high up in the mountains of Corsica with a stunning view to the sea in the far distance.

Another one from the Gesäuse National Park. Wet and rainy weather is always a treat when it comes to creek photography.

Also in rather unappealing forests some lovely little hidden gems like this one can be found.

Wild water, steep rock part III

Monday, 19 November 2018

Here we go with the third and final set of my 2018 Gesäuse National Park impressions. As I already mentioned, I will lead two workshops there in 2019 and therefore I did some location scouting. Nevertheless there is still so much more for me to discover in the national park and I will definitely try to spend much more time there in the future. So I'm already looking forward to my upcoming stays along the wild water surrounded by steep rock.

In periods of high water the river also carries large pieces of driftwood like this big log which finally got wedged here.

A cloudless sunny autumn day ends peacefully.

The fallen red fall foliage makes a great contrast to the moss covered green rocks along this creek.

The tiny moon as a forerunner of the slowly rising sun above the peaks of the so called Hochtorguppe.

To my pleasure all of a sudden this nutcracker appeared on a treetop druing this rainy morning.

In early summer most of the meadows in the national park are full of beautiful orchids and lots of other wildflowers.

Some autumn mushrooms in their wet habitat along the river.

Long after the sun has already set the rock faces are still illuminated by some soft glow.

First snow on the higher peaks of the area.

Wild water, steep rock part II

Thursday, 15 November 2018

Today I would like to serve you the second series of images I took this year in the Gesäuse National Park in Styria, during my location scouting trips. I mainly focused on easy reachable places, mostly along the Enns River which runs all the way through the park surrounded by numerous massive peaks and delicious forests. Hope you'll enjoy my impressions.

A closer look at the slopes after some intense rainfalls.

The slowly setting sun paints the autumn woods in even more gold, while the blue waters of the river make a lovely color contrast.

Moss coverd and quite slippery rocks can be found all along the Enns River.

Floating water, floating foliage.

Preparations for the upcoming day.

Another dew covered tiny meadow resident.

It actually took me quite a while this day to catch a short glimpse on the mountains before the rain clouds hid them again.

A lovely little pond hidden between trees and reed.

My view at the mountains through some lovely fall foliage.
