I was at this location three days in a row. The first day I ended up soaking wet in pouring rain. On day two I had to tie my camera to a massive rock because of super strong winds and I also took this picture while I was witnessing the rad colors in the sky. The third day was my favorite though. Actually I was pretty happy with this shot already, but I wanted to get a different angle. So again, I was hiking around for a while, looking for a better composition. But fog came in and I decided to call it a day, walked back to the trail and somehow intuitively looked up to the sky and saw a huge golden eagle right above my head. It was so close and impressive, I almost got scared and for a moment I was just stunned by it's majestic beauty. I watched it fly in circles and then eventually disappear in the fog over the lake. That was just epic and a moment to remember!

infinity in a moment
On the road to finding my own style and capturing brief moments in time. Maloja Pass road.
some time ago, I was standing on a ridge in the opposite direction of this photo and it seemed there was this ridge blocking my view, so I found it on the map and decided to explore it a couple days later. I was expecting and hoping for nice sunset colors for a great photo, but sometimes I worry so much about returning with a good photo, that I almost forget why I wanna be up here in the first place. But that moment as we reached the top, when we got rewarded with a view almost only limited at the horizon, the pictures I took were with my heart and mind. Well, this feeling doesn't last forever, so thanks to my friend Lorenz for posing on that photo! @_paediil
ups and downs
Some years ago I went summer skiing and on one of my first runs I was on the lift with a dude called Eugene. We immediately became friends and skied and filmed together before he went back home to the UK. We couldn't share our passion for the mountains for too long because skiing gave us both a hard time with injuries. Life is an up and down and we finally managed to spontaneously meet up again in the Dolomites. It's a great feeling, seeing people after a long period of time and we're both still addicted to the mountains with or without skiing. Although it rained a lot, we got to see the beautiful landscapes and did some cool hikes to get closer to the stunning spiky peaks you can find everywhere in this area. I took the picture on the first clear morning after the storm, near the Groedner Joch. Thanks to all the rain, the air was so clear and I was just blown away by my surroundings as the sun rose.

trying to get creative for the monthly challenge of Lumix Switzerland, topic: reflections
Can't complain, cause this place is actually almost on my doorstep. So I shot this before I went to work one morning at sunrise. The Reichenbach river leading to mount Wellhorn
the longest day
Lumix gh3 - 12mm - f/1.4 - 30s - iso 200 - 80 frames. This is shot from the road that leads from Beatenberg to Thun and I really love the blending of artificial and natural light. @_paediil
Shot this on a Friday, after leaving work early for driving to South Tyrol. Not early enough, because I missed the best light in the valley. These were the last colors in the sky before night came in.
