2020 in 100 Photos

Well I think it is fairly safe to say that this year did not go as planned! We were meant to be getting married in August, however the global pandemic put that on hold until 2021. The year continued to be full of surprises, on my last day in work before I had to isolate due to the COVID rules I had an interview for a secondment to Germany. While clearly the middle of a global pandemic is not the best time to try and move country, we decided to take a risk and I accepted the role in Munich. This means that I now live an hour from the Alps, and hopefully Becky will as well when travel becomes easier again in the near future. Winter / Pre Lockdown The first two months of the year started well with plenty of mountain biking, some landscape photography and an enjoyable Scotland trip, it was just a shame that yet again I managed to injure myself on the Scotland trip so was confined to the hut for half of the week. While this meant I wasn’t able to get out and. Read the full article…

Bavaria Landscape Photography – Geroldsee

This is the third blog in a three part series from a long weekend of Landscape photography in southern Bavaria. I recently moved to Munich and my first visitor was David, who visited for a weekend of landscape photography. This provided an excellent opportunity to explore as the entire area was still very new to me. Bavaria Landscape Photography – Exploring Bavaria Landscape Photography – Berchtesgaden Bavaria Landscape Photography – Geroldsee On the last morning of our trip we were starting to feel fairly fatigued by the constant 4am starts, but with a perfect forecast we couldn’t help but go out for another classic location. It doesn’t take much searching on the internet to find some superb photos from this classic location, and given that we were at the end of summer that is clearly shown by the track which has been worn on the way up to the “photographers ledge”. It was a short walk in from the car park, and I am glad that we had explored the location on a dreary evening a few days previously. In the dark, having not been there before, it would have been.

Bavaria Landscape Photography – Berchtesgaden

This is the second blog in a three part series from a long weekend of Landscape photography in southern Bavaria. I recently moved to Munich and my first visitor was David, who visited for a weekend of landscape photography. This provided an excellent opportunity to explore as the entire area was still very new to me. Bavaria Landscape Photography – Exploring Bavaria Landscape Photography – Berchtesgaden Bavaria Landscape Photography – Geroldsee We had booked to stay away in Berchtesgaden overnight and fortunately this coincided with the best weather of our weekend. Due to this we wanted to make the most of this opportunity and after a lot of research we decided to drive down from Munich in the middle of the night for a sunrise, spent the day exploring, shot a slightly disappointing sunset before getting up at the crack of dawn and walking up a hill for a stunning sunrise. We then drove across the Bavarian alps to get back to Munich, but this is included in the exploring blog post. Hintersee You don’t need to do much searching to find Hintersee as one of the classic photography locations. Read the full article…

Bavaria Landscape Photography – Exploring

This is the first blog in a three part series from a long weekend of Landscape photography in southern Bavaria. I recently moved to Munich and my first visitor was David, who visited for a weekend of landscape photography. This provided an excellent opportunity to explore as the entire area was still very new to me. Bavaria Landscape Photography – Exploring Bavaria Landscape Photography – Berchtesgaden Bavaria Landscape Photography – Geroldsee This blog focusses on exploring without a specific objective or location in mind, either due to poor weather, or due to needing to get back to Munich from a specific location. While it didn’t produce photos as good as the more thought out locations, it was in many ways far more enjoyable as we were constantly moving, and just stopping when we saw something that we liked. Poor weather near Munich The start of our trip did not have good weather, but that was OK as it gave us a few lie ins, and more importantly allowed us to drink some beer and eat some Bavarian food. Exploring Kochelsee / Walchensee On the first day which wasn’t forecast to be. Read the full article…
