No. B/39 - FRAGILE TOUGHNESS: As a result from the past droughts and from vermins extensive clearings have been cut into the forest. At the edge of such a clearing these birch trees caught my attention.  They look so fragile but are so tough. - Sizes: 2:3 / 60x40, 90x60, 120x80, 150x100

No. B/08 - LUSH GREEN MAGIC FOREST: During springtime in 2022 it was such a delight to enjoy the lush green and the carpet of wild garlic in this forest... Not knowing how dried out and brown this would look like in late August, the trees curling and throwing off their leafs being in serious drought-stress. - Sizes: 2:3 / 60x40, 90x60, 120x80, 150x100

No. B/37 - AUTUMN GOLD: In 2018/19 we experienced a long spread drought in Germany. I have a feeling that this is the cause for somehow slightly different hues of autumn colors I haven't noticed in former years. - Sizes: 2:3 / 60x40, 90x60, 120x80, 150x100

No. B/45 - MEDUSE: One late afternoon the barnacle geese gathered for fishing plants in the water. I like the backlit waterdrops on their heads and necks. - Sizes: 16:9 / 64x36, 112x63, 128x72, 160x90

No. B/41 - FRITZCHEN: I named this egret "Fritzchen". I saw him in the corner of my eye cutting across a small lake.  - Sizes: 2:3 / 60x40, 90x60, 120x80, 150x100

No. B/38 - POTBOURRI: After a long drought late autumn presented these very rich and different hues of red, letting almost every single tree stand out and creating a potbourri of reds, embedding gold and green. - Sizes: 16:9 / 64x36, 112x63, 128x72, 160x90

No. B/16 - LIGHTGLOW: A strong autumn-storm was approaching that evening, foreboding sleet -showers and gusts whipping across the mountains, temperature dropping rapidly. - Sizes: 16:9 / 64x36, 112x63, 128x72, 160x90

No. B/28 - DESERTED: It is not common being able to savour deserted beaches in Europe. It was gorgous standing on top of these cliffs, smelling the fresh sea air. - Sizes: 16:9 / 64x36, 112x63, 128x72, 160x90

No. B/03 & 34 - SPOT ON YELLOW & SPECKLED PURPLEIt was mid-march when a cold-front blew gusts of icy wind across this ridge. Towards sunset gaps in the clouds occasionally illuminated the birch trees. Later, just about sunset, the light took on a magenta hue in the illuminated parts of the clouds and also on the trees. Other areas of the sky stayed in that cold, blue hue of a late overcast day. - Sizes: 16:9 / 64x36, 112x63, 128x72, 160x90

No. B/33 - ALIVE: Despite being fallen over this tree manages to live on. Quite the opposite were my feet - standing for hours in the cold brook until I had the right composition. - Sizes: 16:9 / 64x36, 112x63, 128x72, 160x90

No. B/26 - THE GOLDEN BEACH: Strong winds had churned up the ocean and the sun bathed the beach in golden light as it went towards sunset. - Sizes: 16:9 / 64x36, 112x63, 128x72, 160x90

No. B/10 - SECRET GEM: During winter-time many well-visited spots in the alps are abondoned - exactly what I am looking for. Coincidentaly I found this amazing gorge. But the reason why being secluded during that time can also be a pain in the rear end. There were piles of snow and I had to fight my way into this little secret world... well worth it!! - Sizes: 2:3 / 60x40, 90x60, 120x80, 150x100

No. B/25 - DANCE OF LIGHT: It had been raining all day. In the late afternoon the strong wind managed to blow all the dark clouds away.

No. B/21 - ILLUMINATION: One day I discovered this small grove with birch-trees. That winter offered few clear skies and it took weeks until I got this cloudless sunset, bathing the birches in a deep orange. -  Sizes: 2:3 / 60x40, 90x60, 120x80, 150x100

No. B/19 - AMONG TREES: Somehow I was attracted by the tangle of these different treetrunks - these huge plants, protecting mankind and animals since so long. - Sizes: 2:3 / 60x40, 90x60, 120x80, 150x100

No. B/05 - LAND OF THE SORCERER: I couldn't believe my luck having found this beautiful waterfall and being completely on my own. It was strenuous though, clambering up a steep slope beside the brook and not spoiling the vegetation. Additionally steady rain made it difficult to photograph.  - Sizes: 2:3 / 60x40, 90x60, 120x80, 150x100

No. B/11 - ROCKPOOL: The wind was tousling the clouds and ruffling the sea. The rockpool showing the opposite. - Sizes: 16:9 / 64x36, 112x63, 128x72, 160x90
