711 | Bridge to Asgard | Innerthal, Switzerland



The story behind the picture:

This is how I imagine it, the Rainbow Bridge to the kingdom of the Nordic Gods at Asgard. The sky was mystical and crystal clear, as I have seldom seen it, in this summer night above the Schwyz mountains.
In this 20 minutes exposure, Jupiter is brightly shining in the middle of the picture, currently outshining the brightest stars. The lower part shows the Milky Way including Lagoon Nebula and the upper part shows Rho Ophiuchi with Antares. The play of colours between the yellow light pollution and the green airglow made it possible to take a particularly colourful picture.

710 | The Beauty of Arenal | La Fortuna, Costa Rica



The story behind the picture:

The volcano Arenal (1670m) in the heart of Costa Rica showed no activity for about 400 years. This was also the reason why no volcanic origin of the cone was believed until its first ascent in 1937. At this time, it was completely overgrown with plants. Today the youngest volcano of the country is one of the most active in the world.
Often the summit is hidden in the clouds. This morning, however, there was a wonderful view of the volcano. Surrounded by hummingbirds, I could photograph its surprisingly colorful beauty at sunrise.

708 | River of Peace | Amsterdam, Holland



The story behind the picture:

Most of the time I prefer being in the nature, but from time to time I find myself in the big cities of this world. One of my favorites is Amsterdam. With its small rivers called Grachten the stressful urban life becomes calm.
When I was standing at the Keizersgracht that summer evening, I was waiting for the bridges to light up. The last boats were passing by and suddenly the surrounding became silent and magically beautiful.
