Don Quijote Wind Mills in Consuegra, Spain, landscape photography, landscapes

The wind mills of Consuegra are located on a hill in the village Consuegra, in the middle of the Spanish region La Mancha, approx. 130 km south of Madrid. It is told that Cervantes was inspired by the buildings of the 16th century to his novel Don Quijote. In the book, the hero, together with his faithful squire Sancho Panza, is fighting against these windmills, which he believes are ferocious giants.

The Red Bus in the Canola Field, landscape photography, landscapes

The red bus in the canola field. 

I actually was about to take a photo of a landscape in Saxony. I was inspired by the contrast of colors of the yellow canola, the alley in tones of green & white, and the blue sky, when a red historic bus literally crossed my plan and crashed the party. Well, opportunity makes the moment, the moment makes a photo, and now the picture has its star.

Old Harry Rocks, England

Old Harry Rocks at Sunrise, Isle of Purbeck, Dorset, England, GB, landscape photography, landscapes

Old Harry is an English name for the Devil. The striking rock formation is located at the Jurassic Coast in Dorset, England at the tip of the peninsula Isle of Purbeck, south of Bournemouth and north of Swanage. This section of the Jurassic Coast is dominated by white chalk cliffs, which provide an incredible contrast to the green land and the blue sea. The cliffs are a real eye-catcher when photographed from above with a drone: The coastline remembers of a cookie, a giant has nibbled off a good portion. The best time of the day to take good photos is the early morning. Sun rises on the right side of the picture and gives a gorgeous lighting to the scenery.

Quiraing, Scotland

Quiraing landscape on Isle of Skye in Scotland, landscape photography, landscapes

Quiraing Viewpoint is assumed to offer the most beautiful view over Isle of Skye. In case of good weather, it's worthwhile to climb to the rim of the valley. From there you can get the well known post card motif with the small tree in the foreground. As it started to rain, I took this photo from the parking at the viewpoint. It offers a view to the North with the rock "The Prison" in the middle of the picture.
