Located in Jökulsárgljúfur canyon a few kilometers downstream of Dettifoss this is my favorite waterfall in Iceland. This view can only be achieved by hiking down into the canyon. The height of Hafragilsfoss is 27 m.

The lake Kaska Kaitumjaure seen from the cliff edge of Čihkkumbákti. The view was absolutely stunning. It is difficult to convey the dimensions in a photograph. I set up my tent nearby in the early afternoon and watched the changing weather during the remainder of the day. With this photo I was lucky as the sun peeked through the clouds for a brief moment in time.

For my strenuous climb in the dark of the early morning I was rewarded with beautiful colors.

Large vs. Small
Large dunes are surrounded by smaller ones that are all aligned with the main direction of the wind.
It took me a lot of tries until I was able to capture this wave breaking on a large piece of ice.
Amrum is a small island (about 10 km from north to south tip) just situated in the North Sea, off the coast of Germany. It is part of the Frisian Islands archipelago and is known for its vast sandy beaches and sand dunes. It is a popular destinatipm, however, it never gets too crowded as there is only limited accommodation available.
My photographic interest was in particular in the dunes, some of which are overgrown with grasses and heather. In the following you can find some of the images I captured during my one-week stay on the island.
Unfortunately, it is are that we get proper snowfall in Hamburg and its surroundings. If the snow doesn’t melt right away, it usually lasts only for a short while. For me, the last two days were special as the snow really stuck to the trees transforming the landscape into a winter wonderland. As expected, after two days it is already mostly gone.
I went out to capture some of those fleeting moments.
It won’t take long until winter is there once again. Past winter a friend and I went on a multi-day ski trip in Swedish Lapland, more specifically in and around Sarek national park. Finally I completed a short film about this trip:
Our summer backpacking trip in Swedish Lapland last year was such a case. Originally we had planned a circular route starting from Kvikkjokk via Padjelanta and Sarek National Parks. However, we never made it as we encountered an impassable stream which forced us to backtrack. It was still early in the season and water levels were high.
The disappointment was great but in the end the trek back was quite relaxed and we had lots of time to enjoy the beautiful scenery. We fondly remember our adventure, although we had different plans originally.
The following video is a summary of our adventure:
