Saxony, Germany

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 king.

Molinos de Consuegra, Spain

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.

Quiraing, Scotland

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.

Hore Abbey, Ireland

The ruins of Hore Abbey in Ireland, close to the Rock of Cashel, are surrounded by the typical green saturated meadows of the Irish landscape. The ruins, located in the middle of a cow paddock, are a favorite spot for photographers. You can see in the right-bottom part of the photo a photographer and a bridal couple in a photo shooting, right in the moment when I took my pictures.

Sellin, Rügen, Germany

The pier in Sellin on the island Rügen is the most beautiful and known pier in the German east coast. I was lucky to witness this breathtaking sunset. At the end of a cold, wet, and grey day I drove to Sellin, just in case. The sky opened up and for 2 minutes the evening sun lightened up the whole sky from below in the most beautiful colors. I would say: in the right place at the right time.
