Landscapes and Seascapes


Mountains Meet the Sky –
So there I was, hiking, stuck on a mountain top in Germany. Armed only with a Nikon camera and a telephoto lens, the horrors! The only saving grace I could find was a four star Cafe’ on the very top of this wonder, but more importantly, they served fresh piping hot gourmet coffee! OH yeah…bliss in the sky I assure you!

Equipment used: Nikon D300, Nikkor 70-300 VR lens, and cold weather gear!
What was I thinking? Top of the world (and very inexperienced as a photographer), and did NOT bring a wide angle lens! Lesson learned, the hard way. I don’t know if I will ever be able to return to this wonderland, but the experience will last for the rest of my life.

As always, this image is available for purchase as wall art (Mouse pads just added to the Merchadise tab on my website!) Please see my about page for more information and an exclusive discount code for all of my WordPress friends! Thank you so much for your support, it really helps me to get out there and capture these images, and bring them here for you.

  2. We’ve all done it at sometime, left a lens at home or wishing we had brought that filter! Never mind it’s still a great shot. Well done.
