Living in Vienna in Central Europe, I have got the opportunity to visit diverse Austrian landscapes within a rather short distance. Based at the eastern edge of the Alps, there are such different places to scout like high mountains, gorges and waterfalls, the rivers Danube and Morava with their floodplains and the Pannonian Steppes next to the Hungarian Border.

As a freelance outdoor photographer, I enjoy spending a lot of time in nature and try to share my experiences. I became familiar with photography in my youth, when I got my first range finder camera, a second-hand Kodak Retina from the fifthies. I used it a lot especially during my holidays in Austria and at the Mediterranean Sea. Some years later I bought an analog SLR, a Minolta, which accompanied me for about a decade. Nowadays I am working digitally with an Olympus equipment, processing in Lightroom and Photoshop.

Thank you for taking time to visit my galleries. Hopefully you can experience at least some of the feelings that compelled me to take these photographs. For me personally, they reflect unique and valuable moments.
