This photo was taken early morning at Alpsee (located in Hohenschwangau, Bavaria, Germany). I was counting for a nice sunrise but instead it was very foggy.

Dolomites are very famous for those amazing peaks painted with red at the sunset. That’s also the reason why I chose this place to shoot a sunset, hoping for strong direct light hitting the mountains during last few minutes of a spectacular sunset.

This photo was taken during the sunrise at Piazza San Marco. It was our second trip to Venice and soon we’ll write more about it. In the meanwhile, however, enjoy this amazing view πŸ™‚ Sunrise it’s the only time you’ll see the square almost empty!

This picture was taken from the top of St Mark’s Campanile in Venice.


The view is amazing but it would be much better if the photo was taken at sunrise or sunset. Unfortunately, the campanile is open only between 10:00 and 16:00 or so, no chance for a good light πŸ˜‰ I still like the photo and the way the buildings and the canal are intertwined.

This time we take you for a drive through one of out favorite routes – Sella Pass in Dolomites. Also this time, we added a short video from that drive πŸ™‚


I always had this idea of taking a photo of my car somewhere in the mountains. Driving through Dolomites was an amazing experience, to the point that I only remembered to take this picture on the very last day, with not so good weather. Oh well, you know what they say, the best model is the one who doesn’t complain about the rain πŸ˜‰

Driving in Dolomites

One of our favorite routes was Sella Pass. Driving this route was just unique, we enjoyed it a lot and Natalia even recorded a short video with her iPhone while we were driving. It’s difficult do drive to fast in this area, actually, not difficult, you just don’t want to drive faster to enjoy the view a little bit longer πŸ™‚
Note that we never had any intention of sharing this video with others, it was recorded before we got a GoPro into our hands, we new nothing about making videos, it was even before we came up with the idea of launching Lost Backpackers Travel Blog πŸ™‚ But you know what, watch it anyway, the view is gorgeous!!

Now we know how to do things so stay tuned for next videos! πŸ™‚

As you probably know, a few months ago I started license my photos, initially through ImageBrief, but since I’ve signed the contract with GettyImages, most of the photos will go to them (currently I’m in the middle of moving my photos to Getty).
It happens sometimes that I license a photo directly to a client. Recently, one of the clients happened to be Bosch India. Below you can see a cover of one of their brochures where they use my photo.

Despite the fact that this type of photography is not really my thing, this particular photo was on my list since I first bought a camera, but I never had a chance to do it. One day, however, I decided to pull myself together and, here it is. Below I attach the photo which I made last year together with Natalia, on our way to a grocery store πŸ™‚

This is one of the photos I took during our second trip to Venice. One of the advantages traveling to this city is that you’ll find a photo on every corner! πŸ™‚
