Bright channels, traveling through the crystal clear air in front of the stars.

My friend @nicolasalexanderotto just hanging around in the epic Icelandic landscape. What else?!

This was quite a sunrise, I can tell.

Sometimes Lightning creates weird shapes. What do you see here?

Good morning from Germany, or as in this picture, from Iceland's Volcanic highlands. This light definitely ranks up high in my best sunrise list.

While the storm was pushing towards us, it displayed its danger by lowering it's teeth revealing an incredible shelf cloud/gust front constellation.

Another perspective of that one incredible sunset we witnessed in the Bavarian plains.

Milky Way.

Sometimes nature leaves me speechless. Sometimes it creates scenes that I think are just possible to create in Photoshop or any other manipulation software. But this moment was so real and pure that all of us stopped what we were doing as we sat on the stage in front of the Catatumbo Camp in Venezuela just to stare into the bright milky way for hours without saying a word. Never have I seen people so in peace and fascinated with nature than in this moment. Sometimes we should all just pause our life and stare into the stars for a moment.

It's Sunday, so let's do 3 pictures today!
This one is at one of the cooler locations, we visited recently, as @gzphotographer is walking along the stage right next to the rails that, during low tide, lead towards the Stalker Castle in Scotland. The weather wasn't too nice but this location always works.

Imagine the crazy feeling you have in front of this intense lightning barriage.

Aurora.

Iceland is known for volcanos and the chaotic weather conditions, as it is stuck somewhere in the middle of the North-Atlantic ocean. My friend Nicolas Alexander Otto and me spent a lot of time during our recent trip chasing the gaps in the clouds, which required me to drive 500km through blizzard conditions and roads buried in fresh snow. We still had half of the drive ahead of us when the clouds opened and the aurora started dancing above our head. Paralyzed by this incredible sight, I stopped the car in the middle of the road knowing that only one other car had passed in the last two hours and we just stood outside, starring into the sky until the clouds took away again that which they had just opened up to us.

Venezuela's most amazing place, the place with the most lightning on earth.
