International Nature Photography Festival of the GDT 2010
Three of my images have been highly commended in the contest ”European Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2010“. Two bird-pics – wow, I’m really proud! And another image made it in the plant & fungi category.
The festival itself was as usual: Interesting, rich in variety, exhausting and funny. Long days, veeeeery short nights. Lots of nice colleagues, far too little time to talk to all of them.
As every year I already arrived at the beginning of the week to support the ”construction-crew”. For me one of the best things at the festival – to see how it grows from the very beginning and to work together with the wonderful ”GDT-family”.

Norway, Sweden, Finland – this is a really long and varied trip. Many experiences, many good photo opportunities and – of course – many midges. Europe`s North is always a dream destination. Travelling these immense distances one might think that it is always the same boring forest beside the road. But leaving the road only for some metres offers you nearly always surprising photo subjects: a group of Starflowers at the setting of the sun, a small pond full of Dwarf Water Lilies or a lake with a pair of Whooper Swans. One of my journey’s highlights was for sure Oulanka National Park, located at the Finnish-Russian border northeast from Kuusamo: The long light nights, when the Kitka-River looks like fluid gold, the tiny Calypso Orchids, the endless Taiga – this is a really wild and pristine landscape. When you are hiking in this region you occasionally find bear scat and the awareness that you are in the realm of the Taiga’s king makes you feel more alert, even more alive, although you most probably will never meet a bear in the woods. After four wonderful and exciting weeks it is obvious once again: Europe’s North is addictive – and be sure, you will soon get used to rain, cold and – of course – midges.
