A crescent Moon and Venus framed by the Milky Way. 9th of October, 2013. Canon 5DMkII, 14mm, F/2.8, ISO 1600, 30 seconds, 10 image panorama.
Apologies for the lack of new images from me in recent weeks. I have had a few minor health issues lately and I have been going backwards and forwards to the doctors three times a week. So unfortunately the locations and images I had planned to shoot have had to be postponed for a while. Good news is I am on the mend and weather permitting I will soon be back out showing you all the beauty of the night sky that surrounds us all.
After numerous arduous hikes during the last 4 weeks I'm proud to present a lot of new work. I traveled through the Eastern Alps: from Switzerland to South Tyrol and the Dolomites to Slovenia. I'll upload them here on DA during the next days. Part two of my Alp series 2012 contains the images from northern Italy. Where I shot the Stelvio National Park and the UNESCCO World Heritage Site Dolomites. At the middle of October the autumn was on it's peak and after some heavy snowfall till the valleys the landscape presents winterly. English descriptions and more shoots will follow soon!

A cold and lively waterfall in the woods. It is the fall you can see in the background of the image from yesterday burtn.deviantart.com/art/Water… , the last step of a bigger waterfall that is hidden in the forest. The fence is a little sign of civilisation, it should beware children from danger. Schwarzbachfall, Salzburg (Austria)
The very last bit of setting sunlight reaches the Schrammstein-Lookout-Point just a few seconds before the Saxon Switzerland disappears behind a rain curtain. The shot shows the Schrammsteine on the left, and the Falkenstein on the right.
After a previous visit to Snapper Point I decided to check out the southern end of Frazer Beach (NSW central coast) which has an interesting rock shelf which provided some nice foreground to the foreboding grey sunrise.

This photo of the picturesque Edmundsklamm in the Bohemian Switzerland I have taken about a week ago. Since then it has almost constantly rained in flow and the flood situation gets dramatic. (daily up to 30 liters per square meter). I hope the damage will remain in a manageable size!
Wow! had a great shoot last weekend and the image that i thought nothing of at the time was the one that turned out the best. this IS my favorite from the weekend and its one of my favorites of all time. enjoy!
Evening light on the Grand Roc Noir and Vallonnet Summit in Vanoise National Park. The autumn sun declines gradually on the horizon, coloring with gold the snow covered peaks. The night and the cold fall come around us with a quiet and soothing silence. The wind has stopped, making a perfect reflection on the surface of a lake without any waves.
Vanoise, Alps, France.

I immediately thought that looked like a pony in a gala dress. (To non-MyLittlePony-watchers this might sound like a weird thing to say. But check out this artwork to see what I mean: Twilight Sparkle Gala Dress) Just wanted to share this find with you bronies. (edit: why the heck did I type 'brownies'? )
