Hello everybody. I’m back from my vacations and I really hope everyone is enjoying the summertime. Well, I’m still in the post process workflow of my shots I made in the Swiss Alps and therefore I thought I show you in the meantime this image here I made last year. I was having a short walk with my dog along the Rhine before sunrise and I was searching for new spots and found this location here! And I must say that the sunrise was really epic and for nothing in the world I would want to miss this moment. I hope you enjoy my vision of this moment here :-)
I do not remember exactly when I began searching for waterfalls with my kids in the woods of Switzerland. But our little adventures developed into a family hobby. At some point in time my children have begun to say to all people we met on our trips „We are waterfall chasers!“. Well, a few weeks after I had found this little waterfall here, I also led my friend Sam form the USA to this place in a fairytale forest. And the clan of „Waterfall chasers“ has grown by one member from overseas.
Well, those who follow me on Facebook already saw my post of this location here. It was a selfie made at sunrise with my buddy Olaf and Nadia. We were here on Sunday before last and it was such an enchanting place! Both Olaf and me we were ready to hike some time through forests or mountain slopes. But nothing of this happened. I must confess, I was never in my life so quick at such a beautiful waterfall without walking. We parked the car on the roadside in a forest, went down about 80 steps of a stairs … down a ravine … and voila … we were at the location! What … so quick? I couldn’t believe that such a place was so easy accessible! Well, more time for the preparation before sunrise he he he. And I must repeat … it’s always such a great experience and great fun to shoot with friends.
After some time Olaf and Nadia began to make some portrait shootings and I took the chance to explore more the grotto from the inside! And thanks to the light of the sunrise and the wonderful green tones of the water the grotto began to shimmer in yellow and green tones in a subtle way. It was like in an Emerald Cave! This was the perfect moment for me to make this shot here. I hope you like it!
