Gentle wilderness - New gallery

Sunday, 3 April 2022

In early autumn 2021 Sabine and me, we spent about a month camping in Scandinavia with our son Tim and our unborn baby girl. Actually our main stay was in Norway, but we also spent some time in Sweden on our ways up and down. Of course, both countries are extremely rich of untouched wild places full of beauty and also perfect camping destinations, with endless treasures to discover and adventures to share, like observing moose, exploring wolf tracks or just light a campfire for breakfast after a frosty night. If you'd like to have a look at a few images I captured during that time, just follow this link to the temporary and hidden 2021 Scandinavia gallery. ... and, no worries, you won't find any family pics in the gallery, but I just couldn't resist to share a few in this blog post ;)

Mesmerizing cloud display in the Norwegian mountains at sunrise.

Literally countless wonderful lakes surrounded by gorgeous forests are waiting to be enjoyed.

Waterlilies and some kind of grass hit by the harsh light around noon.

Blue hour nearby one of Norway's numerous glaciers.

A picturesque rainbow above the distant glacier.

A quite huge moose bull approaching by crossing a rather shallow river in Norway.

Tim fooling around after having some delicious blueberries in Sweden.

I just love the way he's exploring and observing the surroundings, even in rather nasty weather conditions.

Endless playgrounds, full of experiences and adventures.

Mountains of diversity - New gallery

Tuesday, 8 March 2022

The High Tauern National Park is Austria's oldest and biggest national park, established in 1981, and since 2019 also home of one of this country's two wilderness areas. But, more important of course, the huge protected areas of the park are home to a very diverse fullness of life, habitats and eco systems. So, every time I can mange to visit this place it's an immense delight and fortunately I've been there numerous times in 2021. Sometimes on my own and sometimes with my little family, which is probably the most rewarding way to explore the outdoors, providing countless memorable moments, like the one, when I could show our two year old son a Bearded Vulture in the wild, for example. If you're curious, what kind of impressions I captured last year in these mountains, I kindly invite you to browse through the temporary 2021 High Tauern gallery.

As if this setting of trees, rocks and clouds wouldn't have been exciting enough, a massive Bearded Vulture appeared and we all could experience this wild and special moment of beauty.

There are literally countless waterfalls in the national park and so many of them are pretty impressive.

The amount and diversity of gorgeous wildflowers, like this Martagon Lily, on some of the rather unaffected montane meadows sometimes seem sheer endless.

The current gallery contains quite a lot super-tiny-scale-wildlife-shots like this one of Alpine Ibexes, ...

... this one of an Alpine Chough ...

... or this one of a Chamois. So, as always, I recommend to have a pretty close look.

An other Alpine Chough easily dealing with the changeable and sometimes rough conditions in its habitat.

And, of course, you'll find lots of Alpine Ibex images in this selection. They are just too photogenic.

Also rather small animals feel comfortable in this rough environment.

Delights nearby - New gallery

Tuesday, 22 February 2022

There are six national parks in Austria and I visit five of them quite frequently since I started taking pictures. Just the one, which is located nearest to my hometown, is the one I haven't been for about eight years or so. Don't ask me why ... So my autumn trip in 2021 to the Limestone Alps National Park was definitely long overdue and I extremely enjoyed these days there. And since I finally went through all the impressions I captured there during my stay, I would like to share an other temporary gallery here, the 2021 Limestone Alps gallery. So, if you're curious, just hit the link. Hope you enjoy.

Lucky me, I experienced these awesome peaceful vista during the last day of my trip.

Personality of a tree.

Gentle morning fog during the blue hour providing beautiful calm conditions of soft colors and silence.

Always super delightful moments to spot some Red Deer.

Soul delights.

I was just sitting there for hours watching the wonderful changeable conditions.
