Sunday, 3 July 2022

I'm happy to announce, that two of my images have been awarded at the renowned BioPhoto Contest and I highly recommend to check out the fantastic collection of photographs on their website. Fun fact: The Chess Flower image is called "Fairy Lights" and the Beautiful Demoiselle image is called "Light Fairy".

This image of an adorable Chess Flower, showing some gorgeous pre-sunrise-glow, was awarded in the plants and fungi category.

I took this shot of a Beautiful Demoiselle for my project Natürliche Nähe, and I'm delighted, it was awarded in the other animals category.

Going east - New gallery

Monday, 16 May 2022

About two weeks ago, I did a short nine day trip to three of Austria's six national parks, running a workshop, working on my archives and an upcoming exhibition (more on that soon). After I spent two nights at the Gesäuse National Park, I hit the road at night to arrive at the Neusiedler See - Seewinkel National Park at dawn, where I finally stayed for four nights, before I went to the Donau-Auen National Park on my way back home. Of course, spring is a fantastic time to go to the Seewinkel and so I was quite happy to experience some more memorable moments. So, as of now you can find some of them in an other new temporary gallery, called the 2022 Seewinkel spring gallery. Enjoy :)

A Ruff takes off during gorgeous afternoon light .

The European Tree Frog. Probably the cutest frog out there.

A Savi‘s Warbler performing its unmistakeable songs in the reed belt of Lake Neusiedl in the very early morning hours, as the moon rises in gorgeous tones of orange and red.

Unfortunately the water level decreases actually every year and so all the shallow lakes are already drying out in mid April.

The Eurasien Hoopoe. Definitely on of my favorite birds and always a great excitement to spot one.

I'm still super excited about my very first Red Deer sightings in the areas of this national park. As on most of my images, I recommend to have a pretty close look ;)

The beatuy of a bright day.

Avocets are just super graceful birds. Even more in beautiful evening light.

Valley of peace - New gallery

Wednesday, 4 May 2022

About a year ago, I made a few-days-spring-trip to the small but pretty lovely Thaya Valley National Park at the borders of Austria and the Czech Republic. Actually nothing spectacular, just a few cozy days in a gorgeous environment, I deeply enjoy ever time I go there. So, the next small temporary gallery is about this trip. If you're curious and would like to check it out, just take a look at this 2021 Thaya Valley gallery.
