Whales from above

From my second visit to Iceland in 2017, my third in total, where I had the unique opportunity to not only take part in a whale watching tour in northern Iceland but to also start and operate my drone from aboard the vessel as the pod of at least five grace- and beautiful humpback whales almost cheerfully tagged along for almost two hours. If it weren’t for these photographs, I still would not believe what we saw on that day.

A Photographer’s Adventure In The Swiss Mountains
Switzerland's beautiful landscapes actually never cease to amaze me! When I was there a few weeks ago, right before our Scotland-trip, I was enchanted by tall mountains and the most magical, almost surreal, light. To shoot in such an enthralling scenery surely is every photographer's dream.
