Once again I present some photos of a distant place: They were taken at the rocky coast of Catalonia in the end of January last year.
Conditions have been very difficult. Thanks to the tide, there is just a small time window when the water level is optimal to take photos. However the rain was coming down in sheets almost all the time – impossible to photograph thanks to all the waterdrops on the lens. Completeley soaked, a filter dropped down into a wave and was gone at once and finally few waves of seawater swashed into my shoes – it was ‘particular’ fun to take these photos.
Thailand, USA, Australia, New Zealand… some typical holiday destinations for many people. It is hip to go there, to be able to talk with the others who have been there. Reasons to visit these countries are often the amazing landscape and nature. At the same time, few people are aware of the beautiful wilderness in Europe, of the breathtaking landscapes, of the very special animals and the beautiful flowers.
For this reason, I thought about a project for a long time: I want to show this beauty, to make people aware, that it is not really necessary to travel always that far. To show that the beautiful places are right in front of our door or not far away. And to show, what we lost already and what we will loose, if we proceed in our way of life.
Within the scope of this project, I will present different areas in Europe, special animals or plants or just special places. I already started with some posts – and I will proceed.
Maybe, you get inspired by these places and next time, it is not Vietnam but the Balkan you travel to!
