Paintings of mother nature
Since I was young I always wanted to paint but my talent was limited. But then I realized that mother nature is doing the painting better than I ever could do. And finally I found also the technology to capture the beauty of mother nature. My focus has developed around glaciers from the beginning up in the mountains until the end in the ocean.
I am a German landscape photographer who has made it into the profession of photography within the last 15 years. All my skills have developed by trial and error and not giving up if things don't turn out as they should. Always being interested in art but also having a close relation to nature, I finally found the profession combining art and photography.
Most of my time I am spending on or around glaciers and their fascinating landscape they have to offer. Global warming is a big challenge for these white beautiful giants and so I somehow feel responsible to document their beauty before they vanish.
What can you expect?
It all starts with the glaciers up in the mountains of Iceland, Norway or the Alps. Each of them looks different, offers different views and patterns. What they have in common is their fascinating beauty.
On their way towards the ocean, they melt, break off, calve into lagoons or the ocean before they further melt or break apart. Also in this stadium they offer beautiful views.
One of the most fascinating things are the streams leading from the glaciers towards the ocean once the ice becomes liquid. Especially in Iceland this goes along with surrealistic beautiful patterns in the landscape.
In this section I collect some shots I took along my trips that show minimalistic landscapes or patters. Water, fog and wind along with clouds can also form beautiful abstract landscapes.
One of the side aspects of spending my time in the northern hemisphere are the northern lights. These also offer surrealistic views of the northern landscapes.
