It is said that Tolkien travelled through the landscape of Switzerland to the Lauterbrunnen Valley, a deep valley that many people now believe was the direct inspiration for the valley of Rivendell, a place instrumental to events both in The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.
The name Rivendell itself means "Deeply Cloven Valley" and the Lauterbrunnen, with its steep sides and many waterfalls (72 to be exact), certainly fits this description, with the mountains of the Eiger, Monch, and Jungfrau lying beyond.

Ben Lomond (Bob's Peak) is a mountain in New Zealand which offers a great aerial scenic view over Queenstown, a resort town at Lake Wakatipu. A Skyline Gondola ascends Bob's Peak on Ben Lomond, making it easy to lift your 20 pound camera gear up to the 1,631m summit.

Taken from Gornergrad, a rocky ridge of the Pennine Alps, overlooking the Gorner Glacier south-east of Zermatt in Switzerland.
I was like standing there and then like woah, all of a sudden there was this cloud reaching out and then it was like lit from below and I was like SNAP boom into my camera.

Taken from the top deck on the 102nd floor. At sixteen floors above the 86th floor observatory of the Empire State Building, it gives the most spectacular views of the city and beyond.
Clouds were gathering and slowly casting over the city which gave a very intense atmosphere. Enjoy!

This picture has been taken in 2013 in Corsica. It shows Ajaccio on the opposite shore, the main capital of this French island. Originally I wanted to further abstract the sky with falling stars but gave it a pass as most people probably don't like that. If you're still interested to see it, head over to my website and have a look.

Klöntalersee is a natural lake in the Canton of Glarus, Switzerland. Since 1908, it has been used as a reservoir for electricity production. The dam's construction substantially increased the lake's volume.
This is certainly one of my favorite lakes in Switzerland!

Skógafoss is a waterfall situated on the Skógá River in the south of Iceland at the cliffs of the former coastline and is one of the biggest waterfalls in the country with a width of 25 m (82 feet) and a drop of 60 m (200 ft).
According to legend, the first Viking settler in the area buried a treasure in a cave behind the waterfall but I couldn't find it...

Seealpsee is a lake in the Alpstein range of the canton of Appenzell Innerrhoden, Switzerland. At an elevation of 1,143.2 m, the surface area is 13.6 hectares. The lake can be reached by foot from Wasserauen or from Ebenalp.
For this picture I took a boat and shot three RAW pics with a Sony RX 100 MII, stitched them together with Autopano Giga and color corrected the photo with Photoshop. Then I got rid of a couple of hikers, hiring my dear friend Patch Tool, the executer. He lets people vanish without a trace.

Composite of one of my Iceland Aurora shots (available on my homepage as wallpaper) and an old photo of Bannalpsee (Lake Bannalp) in Switzerland.
Once I finished combining the Aurora sky with the once daylight scenery of Bannalpsee, I used Flaming Pear's great Photoshop plugin -Flood- to create the Aurora reflections. I little tweak merges both layers so that the original ripples are combined with the new "fake" ripples of the Aurora sky. Then I mostly corrected minor artifacts and color fringing and last but not least, used Nik Color Efex to play around with the colors.
Let me know in the comments whether you liked it or what you'd improve. Enjoy!
