Panorama of the amazing night sky in Dead Vlei inside Namib desert in Namibia. You could see the Milky Way as a bow, the Zodiacal Light, the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) as well as the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC). What a beautiful and rememberable night.
Photo taken in Deadvlei in Namibia. I am sooo in love with the shapes and colors of everything in this beautiful country. Minimalism at its best. And when the trees are dancing around you.. no words, just stunning!
Photographing during the night is pure magic! You walk only with your camera and headlamp through the complete darkness in awareness of wild animals like scorpions and snakes. Adjusting your tripod on a potential spot and than you hit the trigger. You could only imagine what the camera will see. Completely excitement!
Here you see a panorama taken near Spitzkoppe in Namibia. I love this fluently abstract lines of the rockformations. For me one of the most remarkable landscape in Namibia. A nightscaper stands inside a impressive rock bow just looking for a new photo. Over him the beautiful night sky with milky way arch.
The Quiver Tree Forest near Keetmanshoop in Namibia is a beautiful location! Especially during the starry night. This crazy looking trees are actually no trees but an aloe plant. They are known as "quiver tree" (Afrikaans: kokerboom) because bushmen traditionally used its branches to make quivers.
This panorama shows our milky way galaxy inclusive the rare zodiacal light over this national monument.
Standing at Dead Vlei in the famous Namib Naukluft Nationalpark during night is a incredible feeling. This absolutely Darkness, the starry stars which illuminate the clayey, white ground and the highest dunes in the world and thereto this scary crazy dead trees! Wowwww, breathtaking... simply speechless <3 The night sky shows the complete milky way arch of the southern hemisphere inclusive the Magellanic clouds. Even more the zodiacal light (scattered sun light) is visible on the left side of the milky way. The dream of every landscape and night photographer.
Shot of the Night Sky at Teide National Park in Tenerife. The foreground with the typical desert like landscape is focus stacked. In the sky you can observe the imposant Galactic Core of our Galaxy and a Falling Star, so make a wish!
The Milky Way Bow over the famous rock formation "Los Roques de Garcia" in Las Canadas on Tenerife. Its one of the biggest attractions up there. The unusual shaped rock called Cinchado or Finger of God. On the right side is the Teide Volcano seeable. I took this shot of this fantastic rock formation, changed the point of view by rotating the tripod in a other direction and captured this amazing clear visible milky way bow. My goal was it to illustrate with this composite the beauty of the region in combination with this imposant, unbelievable night sky.
Night Panorama of the Baltic Sea at the German coast. The rising sun at the left side weakens the visibilty of the Milky Way but produces beautiful colors in the Baltic Sea. On the left side is a building of the massive Nazi-planned building complex "Strength Through Joy" with the quote "Give me a beautiful life".
B&W of the impressive Milky Way with the Alps in the foreground. This image was taken in the Swiss Alps on the Albulapass at an altitude of around 2300 m. Incoming clouds are illuminated by the town St. Moritz which are located behind the snowy mountains.
