Moonlight over the “Rheinfall” by ManuelMartin1972

A few weeks ago I was once again on the „Rheinfall“, because I wanted to photograph this natural spectacle in the autumn. Have you ever seen the „Rheinfall“ by night? And I mean really by night without any artificial light? The light you see here in the picture comes completely from the moonlight. I got up really early and made my way to one of the largest waterfalls in Europe and had still a few hours until dawn. I couldn’t almost see the waterfall because it was dark as in the stomach of a cow. But I could hear the waterfall. And thanks to the moonlight I could make this shot here. On the left you can see just a little arm of the cascade. The main part of this natural wonder isn’t visible from my position here, but you can see the tremendous effect of the impact of the waterfall with the river farther back on the right.

Thank you for your time and interest in my photos, your visit is most appreciated 🙂

Thunderstorm over Elba by ManuelMartin1972

What can I say? Despite the excellent weather without clouds (for most of the time) we had during 2 days the chance to see a huge thunderstorm over the island! Ha ha ha … how cool it was for me to make some shots 😉 It was evening and very hot and I was sitting in front of our tent … and I could observe how all the people were collecting everything lying around in a nervous manner. I looked to the distance and saw how a storm front was approaching the island. YEEESSS! I took my backpack with my photography equipment and made my way to the beach. It was really funny to see how everyone on the beach was leaving very quickly the area … except of me he he he 🙂 And everyone I met on my way was saying to me to leave the place and that I was on the wrong way! To give always the same answer was a bit annoying … so I began to change my answers: „Yes, I know … but I want to make some shots and therefore …“, „Yes, thank you so much, but you know … it’s … bla bla bla …“, „Thank you, very kind of you, for sure I will go away from here, just one photo and then …“, „Oh boy, I already know about the storm, but thank you“, „My god, you too … OK, I got it!“, „ Yes, thank you, but I forgot something!“, „Really? Thank you … smile!“, „Dangerous? Not for me!“, „A storm? Unbelievable, isn’t it he he he!“, „I’m a meteorologist! This is my job!“, „Don’t worry, I’m living on the beach!“, „Ha! No panic! I’m strong like a lion!“, „I want to say good night to my wife, she’s a mermaid!“, „Look behind you, there is a sand troll.“, „It’s because I want to die.“, „No worry, I’m the weather god!“ … my god, it was like in a circus, but very funny he he he 🙂 And finally on the rocks of the beach I could make this photo before the thunderstorm reached the area!

Thank you for your time and interest in my photos, your visit is most appreciated 🙂

The Coronation of Bavaria by StefanHefele

“The Coronation of Bavaria” – Allgäuer Hochalpen

What a tour! Probably my last, before it´s getting back to familybusiness for a while. A ridgewalk already was in my mind for long. The heavenly green, grassy and steep slopes of the Allgäu Alps were perfectly for my undertaking. While a small thunderstorm built up in the front, the landscape revealed in its purest beauty. A beauty that is not describable. One has to experience it.
