   Finally got around to edit a new shot. This is a shot of the barren jetties of Carrasqueira, sadly the most impressive pier got destroyed by flood some time ago so these are its remainders.

   I hadn't seen a nighttime shot of these piers on DA yet so I figured early mornings blue hour accompanied by the lights of the industrial area on the opposite side of the riverdelta might look good and I wasn't mistaken, as it seems at least. Since SvenMueller and I slept right next to the entrance to the piers we had quite some time exploring the area the night before. Here I went for a rather cold white balance to counter the strong orange cast from the industrial lights which turned out to be the right decision for I really like the purple touch it added.

   While standing there on the piers I found it to be intriguing that the container port on the otherside was quite the modern contradiction to the rather old fashioned fishing harbor thus the title.

   My second deviation originating from my recent trip to the Alps with SvenMueller. This was taken on the 2nd morning we spent in the Aiguille Rouge area after our exhausting 6 hour ascend to the Chesery Lake which was one of the hardest things I've ever done. Carrying a 25kg backpack with all my camera stuff, some food and sleeping bag etc. and walking trails with more than 1000 meters of altitude difference is actually pretty though.

   We spent the first night next to the smaller lakes next to Chesery Lake and used the first morning shooting Chesery and later went up to Blanc Lake for the evening which didn't really offer any usable light though, so we stayed the night to shoot the next morning. During the night rain and wind really gave us a hard time sleeping at first we were in constant fear of our tent getting blown away and we wondered if we'd rather pack our stuff and leave but in the end the gale settled and we were able to get a couple of hours sleep.

   This shot was taken on the northern shore of Blanc Lake towards the Chamonix massif and Mount Blanc to the right (you can't really see it though). I did some experiments with different exposure times as well as some work on the reflections with my C.Pol but luckily the wind and rain didn't start until we were almost half done with our compositions and I was able to get this shot with some great reflections to say the least; only some of the stones at the bottom of the lake are visible in the foreground. I am pretty content with the outcome, still I guess I'll also work on one with some stones in the foreground and less reflection as well after uploading some other shots from the trip.

   The famous Charmonix needles behind the maybe even more famous Lac de Chésery at dawn. SvenMueller and I got up around 4am to walk to the shores from our tent which was located a couple of minutes away (here is a picture of the tent by SvenMueller emats.deviantart.com/gallery/#…. Although I've seen more beautiful shots of this particular location I though I might as well add my version to the already existing shots floating around on DA since I haven't seen a Panorama shot of this location as of yet. This shot is made from 3 20s exposures in horizontal format - don't be fooled by the opposing shoreline being slightly crooked at the right side that is not caused by my stitching; it actually looks like that. Hope you guys enjoy.

   Within everyone lies an emptiness that has to be filled with a passion - landscape photography is my passion (alongside my band of course).

   This was shot on the 5th day of my recent Portugal Trip with SvenMueller after we had a very disappointing sunrise in the dunes eastward of these rock formations located near the town of Almograve on the Atlantic Coast. Luckily we actually waited for almost overcast weather conditions to shoot some of the very ominous looking forms and I am more than just content with the outcome. Also I guess I will add a vertical format of this motif in due time as well. SvenMueller has already uploaded his vertical format which you can take a look at here: emats.deviantart.com/art/A-Mom….

   I used my trusty B+W to get the long exposure and actually switched the white balance to cold light which led to the slight purple touch but still an overall cold light blue toning so I didn't have to change much colorwise. And since I loved the colors so much I figured I might as well use it as a Wallpaper and subsequently ended up going the extra mile to set up a complete Wallpaper Pack for you guys. Hope you enjoy; also let me know what you think. ;)

   After first seeing this sight in my fellow SvenMueller gallery fav.me/d3fvu9o - being the Gollinger waterfall in Austria near the German border next to the NP of Berchtesgarden, I wanted to go there and shot it myself. So after I went to the Alps earlier this year with SvenMueller I traveled down to Berchtesgarden with another friend who picked me up at his place to capture some sights in the Bavaria and Austria - this one being amongst them. I have to say it was more difficult than I had imagined beforehand and moreover the rainy weather made it even more difficult for I had to cover the lens most of the time not get drops on the filters. I cleaned them about 5 times before I actually took a decent composition but still I had quite some fun shooting this location. And although I've seen this quite some times here on DA I am glad that I have my own version of it. Hope you guys like it.

   Also here is a horizontal format, black and white verion:

As soon as I arrived back in Marquette, I was very excited to photograph a few locations I have had on mind for quite some time. I decided to wake up at 6 AM my third day back to venture out to Sand River. Sand River is only about fifteen miles outside of Marquette, heading towards Munising. The forecast was for primarily overcast skies, but I was feeling antsy, I would not wait another day to photograph the location. I reached Sand River and the conditions seemed to match the weather report, overcast, so I approached the scene in a subtle manner.

   I think if the world was to end it would look somewhat like this, the sun fading and wearing away losing it's former radiance becoming a dying star.

   This is also a picture from Rügen, Baltic Sea from my tour with JanPusdrowski (here's a shot by him from the same location: finaldamnation.deviantart.com/… taken after sunset though). We drove to the north-western edge of the Island to gain a free horizonline without the Island Hiddensee in the composition which I found to be pretty distractive especially for low angle shots like this one. I actually started of with a 2 shot composition one for the forground and one for the sky but ended up simply using one exposure keeping the rather omnious feeling of the darker forground due to it's nice addition to this "end-of-the-world" feeling.
