A work from my last trip in the Swiss Alps. I reached this area long before sunrise and could experience how the entire area were transformed from something dark and not visible into something so magical and charming. Every sunrise has its own beauty and as I was not so often in this area I was running to all places I knew to capture the wonderful and unique moment of this special light! It was so exciting to observe how the light was touching gently only some areas and I felt a great happiness when I found this little pond here.
A couple of weeks ago I decided to visit this place in the middle of the Swiss Alps with my buddy Olaf! A fantastic small walk to get at this location … well honestly I have to say that the small walk felt like a strong and long hike under a pitiless and hot sun in the afternoon to get there for the sunset ha ha ha :-) Man we were slow like a snail with rheumatism … carrying a heavy backpack with too much equipment. Even older people overtook us with ease during out trip to the location he he he ;-) But it was a lot of fun … to shoot with a friend is really so cool ;-))
Well, some weeks ago I was at this wonderful place with two friends of mine (Olaf and Nadia). We had the idea to chase the sunset over the lake „Bodensee“ on the isle Reichenau. For me it was wonderful to have the chance to make shots without hiking for hours … it was just a trip of one hour by car … and hey, after that we were there he he he! But, it was easier said than done! First of all we had absolutely no idea about the location as it was a spontaneous idea to visit this place and second … almost every beautiful spot was a private facility … and therefore not much access to the shore. For me completely a new situation because normally where I’m hiking everything is free for mankind ha ha ha! And third … now I know what the real death squads are!!!! MOSQUITOES!!! Small poisonous beasts coming through every clothing and driving us three to madness!!! But hey … we survived. And we had a lot of fun and a fantastic sunset … and this is the only important thing. Olaf and Nadia … I have to thank you for the wonderful time fighting together against small soldiers and for all the laughs we had together!
Thank you for your time and interest in my photos, your visit is most appreciated :-)
