Maghera Waterfall

Assaranca Waterfall

Assaranca Falls / Maghera Falls, County Donegal, Ireland © Frank Lüdtke   Long time ago, I already shot this wonderful, not well-known waterfall in Ireland (Lonely Waterfall). Today, the composition which I chose in the past, is no longer possible because the stone in the foreground no longer exists – however, I didn’t care about it, because I wanted to try something new anyway.

Awakening, Chamonix Mont-Blanc / Argentière, France © Frank Lüdtke My brother and I arrived at Chamonix Mont-Blanc in the evening in heavy rains and thunderstorms. Just after the rainfall stopped, we decided spontaneously to walk up the mountain to find a better spot to shoot.

All of them discouraged us to go any further because of the flooded trails, hail- and thunderstorms and unstable weather conditions. Perfect, we thought – exactly the conditions we’re looking for. We found this little stream just before the sun disappeared behind the mountains. The sun shined through a small opening in the clouds behind us and created an amazing Alpenglow on some of the highest peaks of the European Alps. — Mein Bruder und ich erreichten das Gebiet um Chamonix Mont-Blanc am Abend … Continue reading Awakening
