Runner up/2nd place 'European Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2017'

So proud that my image „When the ice melts…“ has won the second place/runner up in the category landscape at the 2017 edition of 'European wildlife photographer of the year' (GDT)! And especially, that I still seem to have pictures in my archive, which can take part in this summit, certainly because I have been very limited for the last years with photography.

This picture was made at the Aletsch Glacier in 2009 and shows a small glacial cave where the melting water flows through the ice. Shortly thereafter, the cave disappeared, and not long ago parts of the area were closed down: as a result of the retracting ice and permafrost due to the global warming, the rocks have become unstable.

Beautiful book with also many pictures of my hand

The publishing house 'Knesebeck' has launched this book about the beautiful nature of the south of Germany and the Vosges in cooperation with the 'Regional Group Baden' of the GDT (Association for Wildlife and Nature Photography), where I am a member of. I am very pleased that also many of my images make part of this book. It has become a beautiful book with great pictures, informative texts and a very nice layout.
