This aerial shot shows the "Allgäu" a part of Bavaria, and one of the most beautiful areas in Germany. It shows all the beauty that you can find compressed on the edge of flat land and mountains. In german we call it "Voralpenland" – the ground before the alps. You have a lot of small hills covered in wonderful green and some nice lakes there, always with the mountains as a beautiful backdrop. So obviously this is the perfect place to be photographed from above. To do this I made a balloon ride and this was the view from the highest point of the trip – around 3000m. You can enjoy the full story of the trip on storehouse:
Can you spot the famous Castle Neuschwanstein in this image? It is this little white thing in the bottom right corner. In this image you can see the unbelievable mountain range behind the castle, which is located right at northern end of the alps. The shot was made from about 25km away in the first morning light in about 3000m height. This area is called the "Königswinkel", one of Germanys most famous tourist destinations, which delivers some unbelievable beauty. More photos from there soon.

Frankfurt again! I did not visit the city in 2014, but I had to come back in 2015 for this photo. My photo shows the view from the new shopping mall SkylinePlaza. This place was a building lot for a very long time. From a photographers view its one of the most interesting spots in FFM. The buildings (from left to right): Messeturm (256,5 m), Kastor (95 m), Pollux (130 m), Tower 185 (200 m) and the new building Kap Europa. 4 years ago it looked like this:
