Those river braids reminded me of the ones I’ve seen on photos from iceland. Who would have thought finding something alike in a country like Mongolia? I didn’t. 
I’m more than glad @muenchmax showed me some of the most spectacular places of the country. Check out his project @followthetracks, if you’re interested in traveling Mongolia.

This hotel in Zaandam looked like stacked Dutch houses, sort of randomly put together. My first association was LEGO. It must have been a fun job sketching this colossus.

Climate change doubters would change their minds soon enough, if they'd live in a place like that. 😇

Never have I seen so many windmills in one place. You can find a total of 19 windmills from the 18th century in Kinderdijk. Unfortunately, I wasn’t too lucky with the weather - the sun actually rises right behind the windmills and when there is no wind you get a reflection of the windmills in the river. Anyway, the dark clouds and the choppy water haven’t hurt the idyllic atmosphere of this place, if you ask me.

When I started photography and  lived at my parents house, I asked my dad, if he could wake me up when he sees fog in the morning. Since then, he’s reliably fulfilling his duty for a couple of years, when I come visiting. This was one of those mornings, where I heard a heavy knocking at my door and just the word:

This was one of those mornings, where I heard a heavy knocking at my door and just the word: "Nebel" in a deep masculine voice (german word for fog). I knew ignoring it wasn’t an option. Appreciated, Dad!

Before I’ve left my former home base Trier, where I’ve lived the past 3 years, I desperately wanted to sleep in a cave I’ve found during a walk in the woods one time. I'am quite stoked about it, since it is a maisonette-cave - it has two floors and looks incredible. I wouldn’t have thought finding something like this in Germany, especially not in the local forest. Anyways, I’m glad a bunch of friends joined me on that mission and made it to one of my favorite summer memories of 2019. ⁣⁣

A calm & peaceful morning at the chalk cliffs of Rügen. Even though, it’s one of the most scenic places of northern Germany, I haven’t met anyone and it turned out to be the perfect fit to #EscapeTheNoise for a bit.⁣⁣⁣⁣

It’s time to take a break from my Svalbard series and continue with some content from Germany. Even though, I’ve visited this iconic lighthouse a couple of times, it’s still a place that carries a contagious idyll I won’t get tired of. ⁣
This time, I experienced an incredible sunset and beauty wasn’t only found in the obvious.⁣

Bleeding glacier.⁣
From the bird's eye view, that glacier appeared like an abstract painting. The red color comes from sediments carved down from a mountain by the receding glacier. I’ve seen water turning brown in front of the glacier, but an intense red color I’ve never even imagined. As beautiful as it might look as sad is the fact it might be gone soon. ⁣
