Lens Review: The Sigma 10-20mm f/3.5 EX DC HSM

Since I love taking pictures under hazy light conditions and due to a lack of shades and soft contrasts, I decided to borrow a SIGMA 10-20mm F3.5 EX DC HSM lens for one day and test it along with my Canon EOS 80D camera. The location for my review was Vienna’s Karlsplatz. As I’m pretty ...

Underwater photography by Michaela Skovranova

Although many of us enjoy spending some time in the water, water is definitely not the element of human-beings. In the water we’re only guests for a limited period of time.

Red soil, endless wilderness, breathtaking sunsets, amazing animals, freedom and adventures. All this and much more I can relate to my dream of Africa.

Wild chase

Autumn has arrived way too soon. And it really caught me by surprise. From sunny Vienna I went to Berlin. And yeah, summer in Berlin wasn’t a real summer anyways.

People change. PLACES AS WELL.

The Dead Sea – Drone shots by Tzvika Stein

The Dead Sea. Perhaps it’s the name that sounds a bit scary or the mere fact that people can float on it magically. As a child the Dead Sea fascinated me in a wonderful and horrific way. I kept asking friends and relatives who’d already been there to tell me what it felt like, and ...
