South Tyrol, Antholz Lake in the Dolomites in Italy in the Summer

Antholz Lake in South Tyrol | Dolomites, Italy

Antholzersee, translated Lake of Antholz in English, is the third largest Lake in South Tyrol. Surrounded by mountain peaks, it is one of the most picturesque places in the Dolomites which we saw. When we reached this viewing point, we almost felt overwhelmed by the silence and yeah… the fresh air, which at a height of 1642 meters over the sea level, was not so easy to breathe.

We often see this view of the Lake Tegel when we are leaving or returning to Berlin. It is always a significant moment when we smile to each other… there really is no place like home.

Evening at Braies Lake in the Dolomites, Italy

Braies Lake | Dolomites, Italy

Lago di Braies is a natural lake which was the result of a landline blocking the river Braies. The road which leads to it, is an adventure by itself, mainly because of its views. It’s probably one of the most well-known and the largest lakes in the Dolomites, Italy.

Misurina Lake | Dolomites, Italy

You will immediately notice when you’re in Misurina in the Dolomites, that the air will be unlike what you’ve ever experienced. The lake Misurina and its surroundings are believed to have good air for healing respiratory diseases. From our experience, we found that breathing 1754 meters above sea level wasn’t easy, but it may just be that the views were simply breath-taking.

Bâtiment des Forces Motrices BFM | Geneva, Switzerland

The Bâtiment des Forces Motrices, also known as BFM in Geneva, is a building, which immediately put me under its spell. During an evening stroll through the second largest city in Switzerland the sumptuous illuminated building in the middle of the river Rhône caught my photographic eye in a heartbeat. The BFM was originally constructed between 1883 and 1892 as a hydroelectric power plant and was used as such until 1960.

Home Sweet Home | Berlin Alt-Tegel, Germany

It’s no secret that we love to travel and are often exploring the world. Yet, there is this one place where we are happy to come back to again and again. Especially after a long journey, things are often quite similar: First one evening on the couch, relaxing and arriving back home. But the very next day we often go out and have a look at “our” Lake Tegel. A wonderful constant which will be here forever, whenever we come back to Berlin.

Lake Tegel Night

Lake Tegel at Night | Berlin, Germany

When in June 2011 I finally bought the Canon 500D, I obviously immediately went to Lake Tegel, 5 minutes from my home. It was pretty late already around 10pm but there was still the last light on the horizon. It was more a tryout of the new camera than a planned shooting but nevertheless: If the light is right, there is not much to do wrong. In all years that passed since then, I rarely saw a sky quite like that again at Lake Tegel.
