I just love the Dolomites area. It is large and jaw dropping beautiful. Here is a collection of just a few places I have photographed during my multiple visits to that area. Already looking forward to my next visit!

Aurora season is ending. I guess nobody really notices anyways because traveling isn’t possible. So I just dream myself away into green memories.

Vareid - I finally picked up one of the images I took at Lofoten last year. Actually the best moment of light I had throughout that short and sometimes nightmare like trip. ...what took me so long to edit this? Well, first of all I have a tendency to leave the images I consider best laying around the longest because I feel I want to do those images extra justice and put in some extra work. And the moment just has to feel right. And what really kept me away here was going through about 80-100 different exposures with different wave motions or stages of light. That’s something that usually always drives me crazy about seascapes: the picking of the one or two best wave formations. In this case i had a very hard time deciding to pick up a long exposure instead of one with actual visible wave action. I might do that one, too, some day. But for now I am glad as is. See the full version by swiping to the side.

Valley of light- one of my personal favorites from last year’s summer visit to Iceland. That depth and view still fascinates me.

Magic moment at the Faroe Islands - back when traveling was still a thing we could do.

Arteries - Rivers with milky water run through the volcanic soil of Iceland. I have sat down long to edit these shots a bit differently now to achieve a better quality for print and get a natural look of this wonder of the Icelandic landscape. Light was dim when I took these images, keeping the shutter as low as at least 1/1000 sec while flying with the plane and still have a not too high ISO (with the aperture almost all the way opened up) the images turned out well underexposed. Not ideal at all because pulling up the exposure in the edit produces more grain. But there are different ways to edit your raw files in these situations which can produce great results despite non ideal conditions. 
Anyways, most people won’t really care about how the image was shot and edited. And rightfully so: I don’t marvel bread for the baking skills of the baker man but for the taste. And the best you can say about an image is how much you can connect with it and it touches and moves you. Best case scenario: you don’t even think about the edit while looking at it. So, I hope you like the image for what it is and care less for how it was made. But if you do for the latter you can look forward to an article I wrote for a photo magazine for next month. And of course you can hit me for editing trainings as well. .

On top of Madeira - it’s not like Madeira wasn’t known for its photographic opportunities when I planned my trip and tried to look up for photo spots. But back in 2018 there surely wasn’t this abundance of photos from this wonderful island like there is now. Well, it’s just a great place to photograph. And I would really like to go back. .

Pillars of eternity - the remains of an old harbor in the rough sea of the Faroe Islands. I like the drama of this shot with the wind pushing up the water of the waterfall in the distance and the waves crashing into the cliffs. And these pillars stir my fantasy about ancient times when fisher men who battled the sea arrived back home...if they ever.. I also like the fact that this is a spot I haven’t seen on social media, yet. At least not from this angle. And why not keep it that way?! So in case you asked in the comments or via dm and I refer you to read the captions: no harm intended but my lips are closed this time. The people on the Faroes aren’t crazy about the tourists anyways.

The burning - as I was standing at the plateau of Lagazuoi I was witnessing a great sunset. I used my 100-400 lens to capture this dramatic moment. Doesn’t get much better than having fiery clouds hanging in jugged peaks. (Thanks to my buddies @hansgunnaraslaksen and @mbeiter who gave me some help in my final edit in making do the final tweaks. That’s what friends are for. Truly appreciate it!)

I miss the Dolomites. And I would love to go back. I know the places and people there go through a rough time. Well we all do, I know. I don’t get paid for saying this, they don’t even know I do: but when things will be better again and we are all healthy and can go again please check out @hotelicaro_dolomites as a place to stay. Great people and great hotel in a fantastic place: Seiser Alm. (I know, I have to call this #ad/werbung now. So be it.). All the best to the lovely people in Italy. All the best to everyone everywhere.
