Personal top 10 photos of 2018

It’s again time of the year to recapitulate. Already while I was browsing through my photo archive to select photos for my 2019 calender earlier this year I was quite shocked how the amount of photo folders declined this year.
Here is a little overview of the amount of photo folders which correspondent to occasions where I took photos, over the past 7 years.

– 2011: 33 folders
– 2012: 33 folders
– 2013: 42 folders
– 2014: 39 folders
– 2015: 33 folders
– 2016: 31 folders
– 2017: 31 folders
– 2018: 9 folders

At least it’s not surprising to me when I think about all the other time-consuming things I’ve been doing this year, like attending a Japanese language class once a week, plenty of training for my first Olympic triathlon this year, finishing a three semester long degree at an online university which required approx. 18h/week and constantly learning new stuff for work in my free-time, while working full-time and still accumulating plenty of over-hours.
For next year I can already say that I want to do less different things at once and focus more on fewer things, especially photography. At times I was really missing the free-spirited feeling on being outdoors and on the road, experiencing new places and get inspired by them while trying to capture the essence of those places.
That’s why I want to give a big shout-out to my friend Alexander Otto who has been such a great company and source of inspiration during all my big photo trips this year, to Tenerife in late March, to the Alps in July and to the US South-west in October. Who knows, without him and his constant drive to explore new places I might have not done many photo trips by myself this year.

Last year I was writing that it might take a couple of months to catch up with processing of my shots from Japan, Australia and Tasmania from 2017, I could not have been more optimistic, I think I barely processed a half of the shots yet. The same goes for my shots from 2018, that’s why I have to cheat a little bit this year and probably next year with my top 10 photos of the year. For this years’ photos I considered also photos from 2017 which I was only able to process this year.

When I look at my abstract architecture prints hanging above my TV I feel really sad that I again didn’t shoot anything like that this year and for 2 years in a row already.
I really hope I get to do this next year again, I already have plenty of places in mind which I want to experiment with.

Now I’ll leave you with my personal top 10 photos which I published this year and wishing you a happy new year, enjoy

 

Recent additions to “The Alps” section

There is a couple of new images from various trips to the Alps I added to the The Alps section. Enjoy 😉

 

Added gallery for Australia / Tasmania

As you might have noticed in my social media channels a year ago I traveled to Australia and Tasmania last year around this time, I just added a new gallery with my pictures I posted on social media earlier. Most probably I’ll get back to the pictures soon and edit more of them because I’m content that I still have good material left, stay tuned 😉

New pictures added to landscape aerial gallery

Once in a while I wanted to update my landscape aerial gallery because it’s long due!

New Gallery: Landscape Aerials

I recently started with aerial photography so I thought it would be a good idea to make a new gallery for those pictures. May I present you my first attempts at aerial photography, all done with a DJI Inspire 1 Pro.

More additions to Alps gallery

I added some new and old pictures to the Alps gallery.

Finally the gallery takes shape! I hope you like it 😉

New gallery: The Alps

I’m happy to present you a new gallery, a dedicated gallery for my pictures of the European Alps!

Because I’ve been on a one week roadtrip through the Swiss, French and Italian Alps I also want to present you new pictures which appear in the Alps gallery:

Additions to Iceland gallery

Some months ago I browsed my Iceland picutre folder and finished three more pictures which I uploaded only on social media so far. If you like my work make sure to follow me on social media, I update content more often over there. Please find the respective links in the “About” section.

 

More from Saxon Switzerland

Here are recent additions from Saxon Switzerland to the “Landscapes – Beautiful Germany” section!

These two are dedicated to the delicate life we can see in nature, trees that literally grow out of sandstone. Life is amazing!
