As a small recap for 2017, I want to share some highlights from my summer vacation in Denmark which I missed to blog previously. I visited Gilleleje, a beautiful small town in the Hovedstaden region. Here I experienced one of the most impressive sunrises I have seen so far (as a reward after having a quite sleepless night). The image above is a 15 sec. exposure including a cruise-ship passing in the background shortly after […]
During a walk on the last day of 2017, I came through this dark and gloomy forest patch with a few spots of light shining through to the ground. Fortunately I had my camera with me.. So, finally after a long break without finding much free time for photography, I want to start the new year with this post and plan to update this blog regularly again. Let me wish you all a good start into […]
After walking through the Höllental gorge, my next stop was the peak of the “Schwarzenkopf” at ~1800m altitude. Even though the fog was quite persistent, a few glimpses from the peak to Garmisch-Partenkirchen and the surrounding area were possible.

Continuing my photo series from this year’s vacation in Tyrol and Bavaria, I want to share a few images of the impressive Höllental and its gorge. Going through the gorge and passing several bridges and cave passages near the waterfalls, I was quite happy about the E-M5’s waterproofing :)
… and another shot from my last series.
I planned to watch this year’s Perseid meteor shower at a mountain cabin (‘Mödlingerhütte’), at an altitude of 1523m. Unfortunately the sky was quite overcast and only a part of the southern night sky was clear for viewing the stars. Nevertheless, I enjoyed being outside at night and tried to capture a few interesting shots. Equipment used: E-M5II & 12mm f2.0 lens.
