There is a beautiful nature resort just 15 minutes from my home called Flachsee. I love to go there to get pictures from the birds and landscape. It is an artificial lake, connected to the river Reuss in Switzerland. The location serves a a bird sanctuary and offers a stunning variety of various species, some staying for summer, some for winter, some for breeding. Currently there is a Eurasian Bittern as a guest, but you may find all kinds of ducks, stork, heron, king fisher, snipes, pewits, woodpeckers, reed warblers and the like.

“Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.
