Walking in Montenegro

Montenegro may be one of the world’s smallest countries and yet it is undoubtedly also one of its most beautiful. Only two-thirds the size of Wales, the country’s diversity is absolutely striking. From Europe’s deepest canyon to some of its wildest mountains, Montenegro also claims a dramatic coastline to rival anything you will have seen before.

Proud to have been the only country in the region to have successfully defended itself against the might of the Ottoman Empire, Montenegro has a truly unique culture. From its mountain-top fortresses and medieval walled cities to its remote villages and varied cuisine, Montenegro is an exciting destination that offers not only some magnificent walking but also an insight into a lifestyle most of Europe abandoned centuries ago.

Things will be sure to change, but for now, Montenegro’s multi-faceted charms still largely remain a secret.

Toilets Around the World

Es ist wirklich faszinierend, wie unterschiedlich das stille Örtchen interpretiert werden kann. Von einem süßen, kleinen Holzhäuschen vor einer himmlischen Winterkulisse, bis hin zum völlig abstrakten Kunstwerk, das von einer Toilette nichts ahnen lässt, ist in diesem Kalender alles enthalten. Dieser Kalender ist garantiert kein “Griff ins Klo”. Wenn Sie auf der Suche sind nach einem besonderen Kalender, der von allem etwas bietet, Extravaganz, Natur, Landschaft, Architektur und vielem mehr, dann ist dieser Kalender genau das Richtige für Sie!

The lights of the Dolomites

The mountain range of the Italian Dolomites has always been my second home. Many times I came in these places to reflect, dream, forget about problems and in these mountains my art was born.
This is a serie that includes my personal favorite works about the Dolomites but there will be always new groups of pictures about specific elements, weather conditions, styles of editing.

Landscapes by Marek Biegalski

“I’m commercial, portrait and nature/landscapes photographer. Born in Poland in the early ’70s, I have moved to Ireland in 2006. I’m a self-thought photographer. My work captures sublime moments of light and surrounding, which is a result of meticulous planning and preparation. I’m looking out for patterns within the landscape and the hidden link between reality and the imagination.”

Amongst Giants

Landscape photographer Ted Gore circles the globe creating stunning images of the majestic and the mundane.
It has never been more difficult to make a truly notable landscape photograph. Yes, technology has made mastery of the photographic process more accessible than ever, but it has simultaneously become nearly impossible to create something unique. To stand on the shoulders of those who have come before without recreating the same work is no small feat.

Unique Technique
To be clear, Gore says, in no way is he an illustrator who creates his images in the computer. They’re grounded in traditional photography. It’s simply that he uses multiple exposures and post-processing techniques to make his images come alive. He’s a talented visual artist employing the many tools at his fngertips, as the master manipulators of the traditional darkroom did for decades.
