This photo was taken at Eibsee. It’s a lake in Germany located at the border with Austria. Its amazing colours and surrounding mountains make this lake our favourite to photograph.

This photo was taken right outside of Füssen, Germany during one of our trip to Bavaria. We found this place when we were looking for a full mountain range view. The lake in front of you is called Bannwaldsee and in the background you can see the beginnig of beautiful Alps.

I took this photo at Elbsee located south of Germany at the Austrian border. In fact, because of how the border is created, the quickest way to get there was through Austria. I was a sunrise casting this amazing light on the trees and burning the morning fog. (Click to see larger)

Real sunrise happens very late when you’re surrounded by mountains. By the time the sun reaches your subject, it’s already high and the light very harsh. Luckily, there are many other components that make the photograph: the burning fog, spots of light on colorful trees and of course a small harbor as the main subject. This photo was taken late morning at Elbsee, Germany. (Click to see larger)

This photo was taken in the late morning after the sun started coming up from behind those gorgeous mountains, creating those nice spots of light in the lake and trees around. What’s very characteristic about this lake is it’s green or turquoise color when it’s lit. (Click to see larger)

Cold morning

Hi guys! A couple of months ago I want for a weekend trip to Garmisch-Partenkirchen to explore that part of Bavaria and take some photos if it. I decided to go there because I’ve seen some photos on the internet, believe me, there are some beautiful mountains there. The problem is that you can’t see any of that beautiful landscape if the clouds are too low, as they cover the whole mountains and what you end up is just grayness. Well, I wouldn’t be myself if I couldn’t…

TripToSchwangau-9

Greetings Folks! How often you go back to your old photos which you have buried in your Lightroom library? I don’t do that very often, but, every time I do, there’s always something to discover, something that I’ve never thought of being even worth to start to process it.

Fussen-12

Greetings Folks! A few weeks ago I went for a longer weekend to photograph Füssen and the area around. I had a couple of ideas of where to shoot, but ultimately, I ended up with shooting everywhere but Füssen 🙂 Don’t get me wrong, it was a good thing as the are around is just amazing! I’ve done some research before and I had a few spots from which I wanted to photograph.

Morskie-Oko-1

A couple of months ago I went back to Poland for a week to visit my family during the Easter time. Using this opportunity I decided to go to the Tatra Mountains for a weekend, I always wanted to see one of the most famous lakes in Poland which is basically surrounded by Tatra mountains – Morskie Oko. I don’t think there’s an English translation for it, but the direct translation goes like “Eye of the Sea”.

NeuschwansteinAtNight-1

Hi Folks! Is you remember, I’ve already written a blog post about my trip to Schwangau and posted a few pictures of the Neuschwanstein Castle. Recently, however, I went through my pictures from that trip again, and I found one of the Neuschwanstein Castle that I took from the balcony of my hotel room at night. Noooo… it isn’t something extraordinary in that area, most of places there have a view at the castle, I guess 😉
