After a long 7h days of extreme hiking through south Greenland, we finally arrived in one of the most beautiful valleys I’ve ever seen. The even better news however was that we planned to bivouac there for 2 nights. After a full day of exploring the location, I came up with the first ideas of some night shots, but would have never expected to see an aurora in early August there. However, when the night then came and the adrenaline kicked-in I knew where to go and what to should.

Jökulsárlón, Breiðamerkurjökull, Iceland
The beautiful glacier lagoon is not wide, but up to 250 meters deep which makes it the deepest lake in Iceland. It is a consequence of global warming. The surface is at sea level and sea water can flow into the lagoon at high tide. On the other side, huge ice blocks constantly break off the glacier, Breiðamerkurjökull, and large icebergs float on the lagoon. When the sun awakes the colors in the ice, it is beauty in it’s purest form.

Breiðamerkurjökull ice cave, Iceland
This beautiful arrangement of blues allows a look back into the history of this glacier. The striking black lines tell a long rigmarole from past volcanic eruptions. Well knowing that this ice cave is volatile and fading.

View into the Val-de-Travers, Switzerland
This phenomenal view into the golden lights and foggy valleys is made on the Creux-du-Van in Switzerland, a natural rocky amphitheatre-shaped beauty that was created by natural water erosion from an ancient local glacier causing land slides of a semi-circular shape. Through blue and golden hours the colors are just spectacular.

Helm’s Deep, the valley in Tolkien’s “Lord of the Rings” sequel was described as a valley being blocked over its entire width by a natural series of hills. Next to the fortress in Helm’s Deep called “Hornburg” was a major battle between Human and Elves against the Uruk-Hais, Orcs and Dunlendings, a clash of cultures. Looking into this Fjord with its majestic mountains surrounding it in South-Greenland, it looks like Helm’s Deep without the troops. How would earth be without the troops, without the strive for power, without clashes?

Lake Neuchâtel and the Swiss Alps, Switzerland
It was one of these mornings, when you got up early, hike to the mountain and wait for the sun to come up. It looked like an average morning, when suddenly for a view minutes the sun broke through the clouds. It looked like the sun is awakening stretching his ray-arms into the sky.

Isle of Eigg, Scotland, facing towards the Isle of Rum
Room is an interesting concept. It describes the physical room surrounding us, the room for opportunity or scope, or the room inside us or felt space. Once we feel that “espace libre”, we are often more present in our photograph and create with intention.
