The luscious Grotto by StefanHefele

“The luscious Grotto” – Azores

There are still locations that are not mentioned in the (German) tourist guides but are definately worth a visit. I was thrown back into the Columbia River Gorge as I entered this green cathedral. Lush, green, mossy and everywhere sounds of nature around me. One of my favourite natural landscapes to take photos beside mountains.

Wild Paradise by StefanHefele

“Wild Paradise” – Swiss Mountains

On my tours through remote places on our planet I often stumble upon paradisical places that take my breath away. When I think they are worth a great photo, I decide to wait or return when the light and hence the atmosphere is more unique. It was a long hike deep into the Swiss mountains. If you then, however, encounter the paradise, you feel closer to heaven.

The Light Show by StefanHefele

“The Light Show” – Quiraing

Is this the best known place in Scotland? Probably… But one more reason for me to catch this very unique place in a rather attractive way. Early in the morning, when just a handful people strolled through the area and magic light was in the air, I was blown away from the natural beauty. No wonder, that everyone wants to visit this magical wonderland.

Scottish Paradise by StefanHefele

“Scottish Paradise”

This is what Scotland is all about. Green lovely hills mixed with rough landscape. Bathed in the first light of a wonderful morning I briefly felt connected to paradise.
