The soul of the Alps by StefanHefele

What is it that makes the Alps and mountains so fascinating? For sure it´s their unimaginable dimensions. The depth, the expanse. The dangers involved stimulate and challenges our primary instincts. But the sheer beauty that a mountain massif radiates is hard to put into words and will fulfill me in 2016 even more intensive.

Woods of Dreams by StefanHefele

“Woods of Dreams” – Azores

Even forests have their own magical charisma on the Azores. The thick soft and mossy ground combined with the fresh vegetation makes it very unique. I explored this woods while discovering some remote mountainous parts of Sao Miguel.

Night Affair by StefanHefele

“Night Affair” – Azores

I felt like an astronaut here, 350m above the crater lake in the twilight of the dawning day. If you ever have planned to visit the Azores: Do it! The variety of different sceneries on a very compressed space is a feast for body and mind.

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.

Creatures of the Sea by StefanHefele

“Creatures of the Sea” – Azores

The sea is not only water. It´s much more. It´s canvas, inspiration and sometimes even alive.

Crater Island by StefanHefele

“Crater Island” – Azores

I earlier posted something from this epic sunrise on my first morning. It looks like I have found a green coated moon. Haven´t seen such a landscape before, but this is definately a piece of paradise on earth.
