Sunny day over Moraine Lake

September 3rd, 2014

Taken at the beautiful Moraine Lake, just outside of Banff, Canada. This lake is also close to Lake Louise, but is often missed since the hype to see Lake Louise is stronger. Moraine is far more beautiful in my opinion. Turquoise water and cascading mountains all around.

Melting Earth

July 17th, 2012

This picture was taken during an extended trekking tour through the Nepalese Himalayas. Reaching an appropriate altitude, you'll get magically colored glacial lakes. Easiest one of the most beautiful landscapes I have ever seen!

Orion Nebula in the Infrared

January 18th, 2013

ESO/J. Emerson/VISTA.
Acknowledgment: Cambridge Astronomical Survey Unit

This wide-field view of the Orion Nebula (Messier 42), lying about 1350 light-years from Earth, was taken with the VISTA infrared survey telescope at ESO's Paranal Observatory in Chile. The new telescope's huge field of view allows the whole nebula and its surroundings to be imaged in a single picture and its infrared vision also means that it can peer deep into the normally hidden dusty regions and reveal the curious antics of the very active young stars buried there. This image was created from images taken through Z, J and Ks filters in the near-infrared part of the spectrum. The exposure times were ten minutes per filter. The image covers a region of sky about one degree by 1.5 degrees.

A Bavarian Sunset

November 17th, 2017

After fours hours on trains and buses and a hay fever-intensive hike, we got to our destination. Sunsets in Bavaria are always a special experience and alpine sunsets are truly magical. If you ever plan to hike in Bavaria, I would highly recommend checking out the Allgäuer Alpen in the west.
