Lake Tekapo, Mackenzie region, New Zealand

 on 

New Zealand’s South Island is one continuous photographic opportunity for anyone with a kin eye for nature and landscapes. The incredible part of the beauty of this land is the incredible richness of views. Unlike in many other places favoured by landscape photographers here there is no need to get up at sunrise or wait for the sun set to get a beautiful photograph. Any time of a day will do. The only negative part of this stunning scenery is the duration the travel takes due to the frequent stops for yet another extraordinary shot. For example, my trip from Christchurch to Queenstown, which should take no longer than 5 and a half hours took… 10 hours. My excuse: just look at the view.

Hafelekar Mountain, Innsbruck, Austria

 on 


You feel like you stand on top of the world when you are at the peek of the Hafelekar Mountain above Innsbruck in Austria. Hafelekar is often surrounded by dense clouds below its peak creating some very dramatic and spectacular views. Occasionally a hole in a cloud like that will open up to reveal a small glimpse of Innsbruck below. Simply spectacular views and a memorable experience.
