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.

Morning View II by johannesnollmeyer

I’m glad to introduce “Morning View II” on Germany’s Horseshoe Bend called “Saarschleife”.

After shooting the photo “Morning View” in May this year, i began to plan the next one and decided to wait until october to get some mist like this in the morning. many tries and lots of sunrises later, i finally got the conditions i’ve been waiting for.

I decided to take the photo about 20min. before sunrise. luckily the sky was clear and the moon was alone on the sky and continued with some different shots as you might have seen earlier.

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.

Alpine Paradise by StefanHefele

“Alpine Paradise” – Sonnenspitze – Austrian Alps

Hard work mostly gets rewarded. What I´m talking about is climbing on a mountain with heavy gear. What was a great experience with my brother! Waiting the whole night until dawn starts and hoping for some nice conditions. The view was great here. The hardest part here was to find a compelling foreground. A touch of warm sidelight from the rising sun that honors the Sonnenspitze (sun peak) on the left. Germanys highest mountain Zugspitze sits enthroned in the background and complements the frame.

Highland Myth by StefanHefele

“Highland Myth” – Scotland

Back to Scotland: Many legends and stories are born in the Scottish Highlands. While hiking in the wilderness this myth was omnipresent. Here I was again fascinated by the ever-changing play of light on the green hills. For me this was a perfect moment to pause and wait for the best mood.

Lost in Caradhras by StefanHefele

“Lost in Caradhras” – Hautes Alpes – France

Even in summer the mountain range in the Misty Mountains seems bizarre and icy. Framed by black pinnacles that rise skyward, the glassy blue mirror lake is situated like a pearl.
Since my last photo tour into the Alps I fell more and more in love with the world of fantasy stories. This is for sure also due to the bizarre landscapes.
But when I think back, I always had an affinity for the fairytale.
Well, as you see, dream and reality are closer together than often assumed. For me one reason to even delve deeper into this fascinating world.
