It is possible that one thought of the dog was "Walk me to the #moon!". This image was created after a breathtaking sunset on a frozen lake near #Helsinki. On this evening I knew that the full moon would come out right after sunset and that is why I brought my telelens. To find these two persons and such a fantastic composition was just luck, but that is how it goes, sometimes everything just works out!

This image was taken a long time ago, back where #Iceland still suffered from the financial crisis and had not run down by the masses of tourists. I think this image represents the impression of Iceland everyone who has traveled this country carries in their head.

Shooting in the wood is always a special challenge for me. I think that it is the most difficult branch of landscape and nature photography because you do not have much space to compose your image and the light conditions can be harsh. By the way, I am currently working on a small "on location" video where this image was taken.

Upon first sight, this image might not fit the season, but it helps you guys to cool off a little bit! It was taken in #Iceland near the #Glacier #Lagoon. I love how the water runs roughly the iceblocks forming a guiding line down the beach.

These sandy curves were photographed on the island of Wangerooge, Germany. I love how tha dark water brings in the contrast to the white beach sand. Also the shoreline kind of functions as a guiding line into the image.

During life, you experience numerous sunsets, but be sure that no one is like another. The light during the golden hour is fascinating every time, and I love to watch how the color changes in the sky. This particular sunset was photographed in Helsinki, as you see it was just gorgeous! Choosing the focus point to be on the stones, leads to the blurring of the hay, which gives this image a lot of depth!

This image was taken in the early ours of a spring dy bck in March. What I love about this image is the effect that comes along when using a wideangle lense, it really opend the sky up and drags the eye into the image. Also the line fomred by the apple trees will take the attenetion of the users eye.

Now and then I just go through my library in Lightroom to find some old photos I can tune a little bit. That is where I found this beauty. It was taken in #Scotland on the #magical Isle of #Skye, about three years ago. The sun helps really to seperating the foreground from the background by illuminating it. Therby, sperates this imags in three parts with the small tree as an eyecatcher. #landscape #landscpaes #landscapephotography #nature #photography #photos #clouds #trees #summer #instagood #awesomepix #picoftheday #photooftheday #hpow #capturelandscapes @capturelandscapes #global_hotshotz @NikonEJ #jaw_dropping_shots @lilian_Hoffman_photo #theworldshotz #dreamworldimages @dreamworldimages @heatonthomas @canondeutschland #scape_captures @El_bow #featurenatures #ScotSpirit #LoveScotland #VisitScotland
This image was taken during a the early morning hours. I was up to take some photos of some wild geese on a field. First they were arriving one by one and than the big swarm arrived. As in many landscape and nature related images the image would not have been the same without the amazing clouds which separates the image.

This photo was created during my trip to the #Teufelsmauer last week. The nice flowers in the foreground giving the image a little bit of depth. What I most like in this image is that it is separated in three horizontal parts.

Sometimes the most beautiful images are created using the most simplest compositions. Here I chose the tree to be the point of interest for the observer. The formation of the clouds help to drag the eye away from the border to the center of the image. Then, the golden light of the sunrise, which spreads from the lower left and illuminates the tree and the log if wood beneath it, creates a smooth gradient trough the image. The special light helps to underline the structure of the tree and makes it more interested, even if it misses it leaves. I hope you like it and can enjoy the image. Have a good Sunday 😉 #sunrise #landscape #landscpaes #landscapephotography #nature #photography #photos #clouds #trees #goldenhour #summer #instagood #awesomepix #picoftheday #photooftheday #hpow #visitgermany #pfalz #capturelandscapes @capturelandscapes #global_hotshotz @NikonEJ #jaw_dropping_shots @lilian_Hoffman_photo #theworldshotz #dreamworldimages @dreamworldimages @heatonthomas @canondeutschland
After having some doubts about the sky yesterday evening I went kind of lucky with it. I had a gorgeous #sunset at the #Teufelsmauer. Even if this photo is not exactly the image the image I had in mind while getting there, I'm satisfied. I would love to hear some comments on what you think about this image. Have a great weekend every one! #landscape #landscapephotography #nature #mountains #mountain #sun #summer_evening #sunset #sky #photography #harz #skyshot #goldenhour #clouds #instagood #awesomepix #picoftheday #photooftheday #hpow #visitgermany #capturelandscapes @capturelandscapes #global_hotshotz @NikonEJ #jaw_dropping_shots @lilian_Hoffman_photo #theworldshotz #dreamworldimages @dreamworldimages @heatonthomas @canondeutschland
A small cottage in front of the majestic mount Alpspitz underlines the size changes between these two. The different colors helps to separate the image into three parts and the sky just looks amazing. By the way this image is nearly unedited, even these colors looking unbelievable! #landscape #landscapephotography #longexposure #long_exposure #photography #nature #movment #amazing_longexpo #photooftheday #longexpo #alpen #alps #mountains #stream #Bavaria #picoftheday #sunset #instagood #silhouette #capturelandscapes @capturelandscapes #global_hotshotz @NikonEJ #jaw_dropping_shots @lilian_Hoffman_photo #theworldshotz #dreamworldimages @dreamworldimages @entdeckeGaPa #entdeckegapa #visitbavaria #deinbayern @Bayern @heatonthomas #hpow
This image was also taken under some difficult conditions. It shows a small stream that gathers all the water which was running down the walls. I choosed a wide angle lense to get some foreground on the narrow path. The river, with its blue color, brings contrast to the grayish stone and it seems that the little stream is cutting trough these massive stone walls, which is exactly what happens. In case you like the image, I would love to hear your thoughts on it! #landscape #landscapephotography #longexposure #long_exposure #photography #nature #water #photooftheday #longexpo #alpen #alps #mountains #stream #Bavaria #picoftheday #sunset #instagood #waterfall #river #awesomepix #amazing_longexpo #instagood #capturelandscapes @capturelandscapes #global_hotshotz @NikonEJ #jaw_dropping_shots @lilian_Hoffman_photo #theworldshotz #dreamworldimages @dreamworldimages @entdeckeGaPa #entdeckegapa #visitbavaria #deinbayern @Bayern
Waterfalls big or small are a fantastic opportunity to work with some neutral density filter. I love to take a longer exposure to draw the flow of the water instead of freezing it. The giant rock in front of this waterfall is definitely an eye-catcher and the mountains in the background is the cream of the top.

This image was taken on my last day in Bavaria and it shows the highest mountain of Germany, the Zugspitze. The greenish blue water of the lake and the orange of the last sunbeams create this amazing variety of colors. Where the green forest, which leads the eyes of the observer directly to the top, add a darker component and more contrast to the image.

All the way to the top! It is difficult to shoot again the light but it offers you so many possibilities! In this photo I used the silhouette of the mountain to separate the image in two parts with a huge contrast to each other. Shooting with a higher aperture retain all the details of the silhouette.

Two days ago I told you guys that landscape photography is not always about grand vista's and awesome views, but when it is it can be pretty impressive. In this image I chose the stones in the foreground to create the depth of the image. Also those stones will keep the eyes of the observer busy. Then the lines of the shore will lead the sight of the viewer to the wonderful illuminated top of the mountains. #landscape #landscapephotography #longexposure #long_exposure #photography #nature #water #movment #amazing_longexpo #birdeyeview #photooftheday #longexpo #alpen #alps #mountains #stream #Bavaria #picoftheday #sunset #instagood #reflection #Lake #capturelandscapes @capturelandscapes #global_hotshotz @NikonEJ #jaw_dropping_shots @lilian_Hoffman_photo #theworldshotz #dreamworldimages @dreamworldimages @entdeckeGaPa #entdeckegapa #visitbavaria #deinbayern @Bayern
One of the most helpful tips I found once in a book about landscape photography is: "It is always worth to take a look back!". This quote helps me creating such images, when I am on the move. It helps me to remind me about not always considering that the one shot is in always in front of me. For this specific image I walk about 15 minutes from the valley below. This offered me a bird eye view on the scene, with the small river running through the image like a blue vein. This stream helps me to catch the eye of the observer an lead it through the image and to the upper right corner where the steps give the observer a feeling for the scale of the scene. Tell me if it works 😉 #landscape #landscapephotography #longexposure #long_exposure #river #photography #nature #water #movment #amazing_longexpo #birdeyeview #longexpo #alpen #alps #mountains #stream #Bavaria #capturelandscapes @capturelandscapes #global_hotshotz @NikonEJ #jaw_dropping_shots @lilian_Hoffman_photo #theworldshotz #dreamworldimages @dreamworldimages @entdeckeGaPa #entdeckegapa #visitbavaria #deinbayern @Bayern @heatonthomas #hpow
Usually grey undefined clouds are one nightmare for landscape photography, but if those clouds begin to move and run trough the top of the trees up the hill it becomes the exact opposite. I tried to capture the movement using a long exposure. To frame this composition and give it more depth I choose the island on the left as my focus point. I am very happy with the result, because while looking at this photo I feel as mesmerizing as while standing there taking the shot. I hope you like it, I would be very happy to hear some thought of you 😉 #landscape #landscapephotography #longexposure #long_exposure #clouds #photography #nature #fog #movment #amazing_longexpo #longexpo #alpen #alps #mountains #Bavaria #capturelandscapes @capturelandscapes #global_hotshotz @NikonEJ #jaw_dropping_shots @lilian_Hoffman_photo #theworldshotz #dreamworldimages @dreamworldimages @entdeckeGaPa #entdeckegapa #visitbavaria #deinbayern @Bayern
