Welcome in my gallery dedicated to landscape photographs taken on hiking journeys in Northern Europe and the Harz.
Just back from an early summer (or late spring) trekking journey through isolated parts of the Mývatnsöræfi.
On the left you can see a first picture of otherworldly Herðubreið from Miðhóll, a small crater amidst the Fjallagjá that we followed the first two nights. More pictures will follow soon in the Ódáðahraun galleries...

Recently the NR-Fachverlag published a german translation of Ted Edwards book "Fight the wild Island - A solo walk across Iceland". The original book was published 1987 is out of stock for a long time.

Many thanks to more than 4000 visitors of the photo exhibition in Ilsenburg!
