12/2015 Image of the Week: german woods

March 20th, 2015 by sophie · forest, germany, image of the week, nature, new zealand, photography

A while ago I went location scouting for a shooting in the woods. It made me think about german woods. As you know, I spent some time in New Zealand and most of the woods over there are extremely different to the german ones. They are like a natural wall, you can’t just walk in there, like you can do it in Germany. Its like the nature says: No humans please! Private party!

a foggy day

February 3rd, 2015 by sophie · germany, photography

It was an incredible foggy day. I went for a walk with my lovely Dog and was just able to see around 30 meters far. The rest of the world vanished in nowhere. 18th of January 2015

4/2015 Image of the Week: seal at the baltic sea

January 23rd, 2015 by sophie · animals, baltic sea, germany, image of the week, nature, ocean, photography

That day I was supposed to catch up with my friend Ines and visit the Flügger Lighthouse. But this little friend prevented us from going. Seals are very special in the baltic sea, so I am very happy, that I witnessed it hanging out at the nature reserve at Fehmarn.
