Drone pictures from my Easter tours to Minas de Riotinto in 2022 and 2023
In March 2022 I visited Rio Tinto for the first time. I had seen pictures of this Mars-like landscape on Instagram and was immediately and totally hooked. What I did not know then, was, how difficult it actually is to find one's way around in this mountainous arid and torrid region... READ MORE
Summertime - time for butterflies and other tiny beauties. It also means setting up the alarm for around 4 o‘clock in the morning which is definitely not my favorite time to get out of bed….it’s still dark outside and usually cold... READ MORE
A collection of early flowering plants - hepatica, pheasant's eye, wood anemones and pulsatillas I took over several years partly during workshops with Stefan Imig and partly on my own in the Tauber Valley and in several nature reserves around Karlstadt.
Since my first visit in Kerkini in January 2018 I’ve come back 6 more times to this tiny village that is situated nestled in between the mountains on the shore of Lake Kerkini to the north of Thessaloniki... READ MORE
The Tauber Valley between Wertheim to the North and Bad Mergentheim to the South is well known for its existence of rare wild orchids. You can find lady's slippers, bee orchids, early and late spider orchids, lizard orchids and many more. Most of them have their peak blossom period during the month of May, some of them a little later.
Due to the long duration of sunshine, warmth and dryness above average the hills of the Tauber Valley are very suitable for cultivating fruit trees such as cherries, apples and pears. In springtime a sea of blossoms is covering the hills and the rape fields are shining in bright yellow - what a wonderful sight!
A collection of my chess flower (Fritillary meleagris) pics from two workshops with Uwe Hasubek on two different locations in the surroundings of Hamburg. There are only very few locations in Germany where you can find both the red and the white kind. These pretty flowers are highly endangered and specially protected in Germany.

I’ve been to Iceland 8 times so far always en route in all kinds of wind and weather with wanderlust, a thirst for adventure and my camera to catch special moments in this absolutely stunning country. But this time - the ninth time - was going to be a very different trip: for the first time I had brought a drone... READ MORE
There’s a little forest in the Allgäu where you can photograph curious and rather tame squirrels as well as nutcrackers from a very close distance “in the wild”. During the week and outside school holidays there’s a good chance to do that in peace... READ MORE
Although I had read a pile of books and travel guides about Japan before I boarded the plane to Tokyo, the “Land of the Rising Sun” just took my breath away…being so completely different from what I’ve seen before. We were extremely lucky in having perfect winter weather conditions – softly falling snow for the ballerina-like courtship dances of the Red-crowned cranes... READ MORE

Rügen is the biggest German Island situated in the Baltic Sea. It's famous for its impressive white chalk cliffs, beautiful sand beaches and lush natural beech woods. I only spent a couple of days here with Stefan Imig wandering along the shores and through the colourful autumnal woods.

Pictures from a very rainy and still very good workshop in the Swiss Verzasca Valley with Radomir Jakubowski. There had been a really bad storm with so much rain only few days before the workshop so that the Verzasca had swollen quite a bit and the biggest part of the beautiful rocks were still flooded - really difficult conditions...
As soon as I had set eyes on some photographs of Dalmatian Pelicans on the internet I knew that I was going to visit them, I was so deeply enchanted by them. Half a year later I was standing on the shores of Lake Kerkini ...
Or: If it doesn’t challenge you, it won’t change you!
To tell the truth: I’m not a real winter type, I don’t like it too cold, I hate slipping on icy ground and I’m afraid of getting lost in the dark. But I love the soft winter light, so I plucked up all my courage and decided to do a winter trip to Iceland... READ MORE
