This picture was taken in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany. It was winter time and I found those small barns in the middle of very uneven field. An excellent candidate for tilt&shift lens and the miniature effect.

I took this photo during the day when I was scouting for an interesting location to come back and take some photos at sunset. This small chapel is in Santa Magdalena village in Dolomites.

This is still part of Au Pont Saint Martin restaurant, which is next to the main building. We were hoping to have out dinner there, but no way… apparently good client distribution is more important than level of client’s happiness 😉

Here’s a POV experience of a weekend trip to Salbitschijen, Switzerland.

The Salbitschijen is a mountain in the Urner Alps, overlooking Göschenen in the canton of Uri. It lies at the southern extremity of the range of the Fleckistock.

Took this photo while I was hiking in the Schönau am Königssee. I found this small pond above the Königssee lake and I couldn’t resist the view and stop there to take a few shots. There also were other hikers, so hey, I hope they don’t mind this shot 😉

I don’t have the luxury of living in a place where the light pollution is so low that it could allow to capture the Milky Way. That being said, last weekend I finally found myself in a position to photograph it, during my stay in Swiss Alps. Here are the results.
