With spring on its way I wanted to share one of my favorite #wildlife pictures I took roughly a year ago in #Scotland The #seal in the background is checking out the waters while a #Cormorant glided by. Scotland is an amazing destination for both #landscape and wildlife #photography and I cannot recommend it enough!
Unfortunately regarding this image this platform doesn’t do it justice so I had to square crop it, but if you wanna check it out in high res landscape mode you can see it here:
In case you liked some of my stories then you definitely have to check out @jessedriftwood He has been the biggest inspiration for me to keep pushing the boundaries of this platform forward and sharing more immersive content with everyone! Including the one above where he challenged his followers to make a story themed around coffee I would also like to thank him for featuring it on his page :D Go share some love!
The above photo was shot roughly a year ago during a trip to the French alps. I found it while browsing through older photos after my recent trip to the Austrian alps for comparison. I remember that day as yesterday... Specifically just as I got off of the ski lifts I was fortunate enough to encounter #clear#blue#skies while the golden sun rays painted the tips of the #French alps with this yellowish magenta color. Chamonix remains one of the top #destinations on my list and I’m definitely visiting again in the future.
Golden light painted the peaks of the Alps, moments before sunset. The view from high above was spectacular and it’s certainly one I will struggle to forget.
P.S. This was shot from an airplane window.
As soon as the #sun set the night #sky started glowing with #stars since we were far away from most major light polluted cities. Unfortunately the starry sky didn’t last long and #clouds started covering the skies. The next day was -12 degrees Celsius and it was #snowing most of the time. It was #beautiful nevertheless.
I would like to end my #2017 feed with the image above. I believe it encapsulates a year full of #adventure#exploring new #experiences and successes. I can’t wait to see what #2018 holds in store for us but for one thing I am certain, whenever in doubt just take a break and look at the #stars
Sidenote, I would like to thank my younger brother @angelozor for posing in the photo and for tolerating me during our travels and @funforlouis for an amazing adventure during his visit at Lesvos and for lending me his camera to capture this moment
After resting for only a few days the second leg of my trip began by an amazing interrail around western Switzerland. The first stop was at the iconic village of Albeuve located on a plateau in the peaks north of lake Geneva. I checked the forecast and saw clear skies so I originally planned to go for a small midnight hike to a light-pollution free area to capture the Milky Way. Just as I was getting ready, I opened the room window and realized the Milky Way was clearly visible from there. To my satisfaction I set my tripod pointed it to the skies and captured the image above with the picturesque village of Albeuve in the foreground. Enjoy!
Originally called "The flower festival" this event takes place for 95 years now. It's aim is to bring the largest possible number of Genevans and tourists by offering entertainment, amusements and shows for the whole public, including an hour long firework show! I was fortunate enough to be in town that day and have a really good seat in front of the lake of Geneva. This shot was my favorite from the whole show.
Our next day included a boat trip to go check Scottish #wildlife We were fortunate enough to see amazing #birds#seals and of course #puffins which are cousins to penguins. They were quite restless and whenever our boat approached them they flew away instantly and extremely fast which made it a #challenge to #photograph them. I believe this was the most #picturesque image I got that #day. Enjoy!

This part of Isle of Skye was the most northern accessible by foot. It took us 2 hours to walk up to that point but was definitely worth it, by the time we arrived at the edge of the cliff, it was so rainy and misty we couldn't see where the cliff ended. Fortunately moments later the skies cleared and the view was stunning. That was when my brother seized the opportunity and took this picture of me. When I reviewed this image I realized how small I was.
