2018 B-Sides part I

Wednesday, 15 January 2020

Welcome to my 200th blog post. Crazy, isn't it? Anyway ... there are still a few quite different images from 2018, which didn't fit into any of my previous blog entries. But nevertheless I would like to display some of them here as of now. The pictures are pretty mixed-up and in this first set they all have been taken either in Austria or on Corsica, France. Hope you like this little potpourri.

The stunning color of the Blood Moon matched pretty well to the color of Mars.

Montane detail of some of the highest summits in this country.

A handheld snapshot during one of my Alpine Ibex trips showing Austria's biggest glacier.

A Roe Deer in early dawn on a small open meadow behind some dense bushes.

During our stay on Corsica, we spent some time looking for Mouflons and I'm pretty happy we could finally spot a few. Mouflons are only native to Corsica and Sardinia but have been introduced to different countries in Central Europe for hunting purposes.

If you look very closely, you can see, that the fish seemed to gather around the bird, which is pretty fascinating to me, because they're actually the prey the Cormorant is looking for.

I little detail discovered during my Lady's Slipper sessions in 2018.

What a gorgeous and mainly unaffected scenery in Lower Austria.

Unknown peak during a lovely winter setting in Tyrol.

Fairy lands part III - New Zealand part IX

Monday, 13 January 2020

It's time for the third and last set of my Fiordland images. As mostly I hope the pictures can speak a little bit for themselves and it's not necessary to write that much. Just one more thing to say: Beside enjoying the overwhelming beauty of the natural world there, it was such a huge delight to witness the excitement of our son during all the hikes, especially about the forests and the sounds of the birds. So enriching for all of us.

Wonderful elevated wetland above the rainforest.

There are literally thousands of temporary waterfalls on all the steeps slopes which are coming down the walls all of a sudden after some heavy rainfalls.

Super lovely light and colors on a super rainy day.

Fog is always a great pleasure for me when it comes to forest photography.

The colors of the moss above the dense forest are quite different to the ones in lower areas.

Most of the time the skies are coverd in thick clouds ...

... but every now and then it also clears up.

Most areas of the forests are rather impenetrable and so hiking trails are sometimes a good opportunity to set up the tripod.

One of the wet entrances to this wonderland.

Fairy lands part II - New Zealand part VIII

Thursday, 9 January 2020

Finally I managed to process all my New Zealand images, which only took me nine months ;P So, it's time again to share some of them and after my little Recap 2019 I'll continue with the second set of Fiordland pictures. The Fiordland National Park was established back in 1952 and it's New Zealand's largest national park stretching over an area of 12,500 km2. This fantastic place is one of the areas with the highest rainfalls on earth which are responsible for the mesmerizing evergreen flora containing about 700 species which can only be found there. But beside the obvious amazing habitat of rainforests and mountains on land, the park also implicates ten marine reserves which cover 100 km2 of inner fiord marine habitat. Hope you'll enjoy the images. Cheers.

My attempt of creating a hopefully rather uncommon image of Mitre Peak.

Moss and ferns covering almost everything.

After the thick rain clouds started to scatter a bit, they revealed a brief glimpse to the surrounding mountains.

If you look closely you can see, that everthing is completely soaked.

Of course, there are also times of sunshine.

Green as far as one can see.

The outgoing tide offered a view to the interesting structures on the ground.

Streams, rivers and the fiords are actually the only lower areas which are not covered in green.

There are also pretty heavy winds in the fiords quite often, which can totally blow away the water falls coming down the steep slopes.

On this occasion I would like to point out to the last DIN A3 "Habitats 2020" calendars I still have in stock. Take a look at the entrie preview here.
