The first time I had the opportunity to take a photo of something I already felt that I’m not cut out for family portraits. I went to the fields outside my village and started to shoot sunflowers and wheatfields, sunrays and old trees, and above all clouds. I felt I found something miraculously amazing that I wanted to immortalize. Later I looked at my photos and realized that a simple digital camera cannot capture or reflect the colours I saw out there and that a monitor puts off most of the colours, so I started to manipulate my photos to resemble the original feeling. I read many online resources, forums, tutorials, and after a while run into the HDR technology and started to master it.

First and foremost I needed a better camera, so I bought my first SLR camera with wide-angle lens. This made things a lot easier, my pictures became sharper, bigger and I had much more detail to work with. I started to shoot panorama photos, that consist of several photos mounted together, and also obtained a tripod to incease stability. It took me years to reach a certain level of proficiency in this field, but I think the result speaks for itself.

I think clouds are amazing creatures. They move like vast hordes of unfallen rain through the sky and let the sun shine through their bodies. There are certain times of a day that produce the best view, these are mainly sunrise, sundown and the so-called „blue hour” after the sun sets, but as I am not an early bird I rarely capture sunrises. There are also the majestic clouds before or after a rain or a great storm that create almost unearthly shapes and colours, and I like to visit lakes that can reflect and double the impression.

Sometimes a sunset in itself can produce such fiery view that it barely needs any afterwork, but there are those occasions that I capture a beautiful landscape, and after I start to play around with its colours it turns into an inferno under my fingers. Every time such a picture evolves on my monitor it sends shivers down my spine.

Seriously your Photos are awesome!! All of them! And more and more one question is troubling me. Where do you find these places? You either live in a wonderland or you are very lucky to be always at the right time (with the right light) at the right places.

There are not strong enough words to describe . . . just unbelievable! The area you live in and your talent must be/is something really special!!!
Just keep on going. I am looking forward to every new pic.

The best landscape photographer I have seen on DA. Really awesome! Do you mind if I ask what camera you have? I have a Canon EOS M2 and am wondering if it would be able to capture similar image quality with a few tweaks. It is a compact system mirror-less camera, so basically it is a DSLR compacted into an interchangeable lenses body. Many thanks :)
