724 | In My Dream | Innerthal, Switzerland



The story behind the picture:

Some pictures I visualize very long before I can even shoot them. In my thoughts I try to imagine how it could look like at the right moment at this place. With this picture it was exactly like this. I have been to Mount Bockmattli (1931m) many times, but never in winter. This landscape should have a dreamy look. Until this suitable night had come, I waited years. In the right month there had to be snow and in a moonless night the sky had to be crystal clear. This photo shows me in my dream world under the billions of stars.

725 | Dreamscape Zurich | Zürich, Switzerland



The story behind the picture:

Countless times I travelled to Zurich in the dark. It has always been a dream of mine to photograph the church Grossmünster in a wonderful dawn. Many years passed, but I never found the right moment. Not so on this magical December morning. The weather forecast was promising due to strong and warm winds in the alps. Therefore, I was standing at the river Limmat long before the first light in the sky could be seen. At the break of dawn, I couldn’t believe what I saw on the screen of my camera. Hardly visible to the naked eye, the sky over Zurich seemed to have caught fire. I couldn’t believe my luck. A dream came true.

726 | The Magic of Val Müstair | Cierfs, Switzerland



The story behind the picture:

The Val Müstair in the Unterengadin seems to me every time like a dreamy spot of earth where there is not much going on. A place where you can recharge your batteries in peace and quiet. This was also the case on this December evening, when the crescent shaped moon could be seen in the evening light above the church of Tschierv.
