'The golden Top' of the Belluno pre-alps shot by @stefanhefele "This is the golden gift, after a steep climb and hopeful waiting on the summit ridge in absolute seclusion. Reasonable!"

„Secret of the Mountains“ - Italy Finding new views is the icing on the cake. It´s like magic, when you see something you have never seen before. As you know, in times of Instagram and co an even more hard challenge ;-). What is your opinion? Do you also love to explore and accept that it can become a rivet? #alps #italia #loveexploring #stefanhefele mit @felix.roeser

„Grand View“ - USA What I love about the craft of landscape photography is the fact to be able to blend all those detailed foreground elements that are typical for the landscape with their vast and wide view. The light is the special feature that makes a good photo to a WOW-Photo and again emphasizes the character of a landscape. #usa #grandcanyon #red #loveexploring #landscapepainting #stefanhefele #dreaming

„Between the Light“ - California - Cascades The Cascade Range is a volcanic mountain range in western USA. I feel a close connection to this landscape and will be back there this year with buddy Felix. This photo is five years old from 2014 while travelling with my wife and our little baby and shows the wild landscape surrounding Mt. Shasta while sunset. #usa #cascaderange #mtshasta #stefanhefele #loveexploring #wilderness @anna.hefele.fotografie

"Cedar Breaks" USA As we started our round-the-world-tour last October one of the first destinations was Cedar Breaks. A "wound" in the landscape at about 3200 meters above sea level. We didn´t expect such icy winds and temperatures around -10 degrees. Nevertheless, I could take this wonderful sunset atmosphere with me. Soon after, we flew to Hawaii. #usa #cedarbreaks #utah #sunset #canyon #stefanhefele @anna.hefele.fotografie

„Tales of the South Sea“ - Yasawa Islands What I was most looking forward to before the big trip was exploring the many small Islands in the Pacific. Here I climbed the highest peak of the small South Sea Island with a great guide, a local boy called Lil Tora. The small Islands are still very original and in addition to some accommodations for tourists, there are only a few small quaint villages of the natives there. #fiji #yasawa #southsea #talesofthesouthseas #stefanhefele #tropicalparadise #paradiseisland @sam_tora

„Bay of Fires“ - Tasmania Imagine 250 years ago, when Captain Tobias Furneaux sailed along this Coast and saw plenty of fires on the beaches made by Aborigines. That was the birth of the name „Bay of Fires". All the more crazy that the rocks look like flames without a fire. Coincidence?! No idea. In any case, quite unique in the world. And a blast for the eyes. #australia #tasmania #bayoffires #epiclight #stefanhefele #wonderfulplaces

"Bleeding Wound" - Kauai Like a gaping, bloody wound Waimea Canyon lies on the otherwise green garden Island of Kauai. I caught the first light of a wonderful day here for a magic atmosphere. #usa #hawaii #kauai #loveexploring #stefanhefele

„Treasure“ - Lord Howe Is Not many of you may know this place situated in the south sea between New Zealand and Australia. It´s an Island with just few km lenghts and just several hundert meters width. Nevertheless the highest mountain is nearly 900m high. Not just a paradise for birds, it´s also a feast for our eyes. Enjoy this special view with the southernmost coral reef in the world. #australia #lordhowe #paradiseisland #stefanhefele #loveexploring #adventure

"Three Capes" - Tasmania This was one of my countless several hour wilderness-hikes for sunset/sunrise on my around-the-world-tour far away from home with one main goal: Returning save with a glorious experience in my mind and on my camera. And the constant uncertainty of getting this. The geology here is spectacular. The perfectly shaped hexagonal columns rise up to 300m from the sea. Another photo from that location shows their sheer propertions. As you know Instagram is a banger platform for panos… #australia #tasmania #threecapestrack #panoramic #loveexploring #naturegood #stefanhefele #nikond850

"Babel" - Dubai 2019 My presumable last photo of our round-the-world-trip makes my sense of humanity move into a completely different light. Experiencing the sunrise in such a surreal, man-made place was an extraordinary, deeply touching event. I have already photographed a lot of architecture, but what people have created here in the desert is simply beyond my grasp. I hope the photo can give you a good impression! #dubai #burshkhalifa #shangriladubai #cityscape #sunrise #turmvonbabel #crazyworld #stefanhefele #aroundtheworld @anna.hefele.fotografie

„Worlds End“ - Tasmania Far away from home there are mountains that could arise out of my wacky imagination. Here on Tasmania it is reality and what might tops the mountains is the unique vegetation and wildlife found here. A severe hike lead me to this place. On my way back in dark twilight a Tasmanian Devil crossed my way - Reality? Fairytale. Paradise! I´m sure I witnessed it. #australia #tasmania #paradise #mountains #stefanhefele #loveexploring #lovenature

I just returned from this strenous hike up Mt Gower. You are only allowed to get up there with licensed guides due to several steep rope sections, so a sunrise/set was not possible. But hey, I LOVE views like that. One more for my small daylightcollection. The forest surrounding me on top of the Mountain is called fog forest. Means it's mostly covered in clouds with no view. Lucky me today🙄😊 There are a few very unique things in the frame. The coral reef is the southernmost reef in the world and the palm in the foreground is only found on this mountain - Not even on the one in front! So crazy World. #australia #mtgower #paradiseisland #paradise #stefanhefele #worldrecords #epicview #landscapephotography

„Glowing Lines“ - Australia 2019 There you go: My first photo of 2019☺. When I think of Australia I first have endless red deserts in my mind. This time I can´t visit the red centre of Australia. But I was able to find a little stretch of desert right next to the sea that looks like the Sahara or the Gobi. If you ever experienced the light just before sunset or after sunrise in a desert you will never ever forget it. The picturesque game of light and shadows is hard to beat. @anna.hefele.fotografie #australia #desert #stefanhefele #gameoftones #loveexploring #2019

Hören Sie das auch? Das Knarzen und Pfeifen, und dieses komische Jaulen, das immer näher zu kommen scheint? Es heißt, in den alten Ruinen in den Alpen würde keiner mehr leben, aber soll man das wirklich glauben? Ist es nicht eigenartig, dass die Türklinke zum Schlafzimmer des alten Schlosses so gar nicht verstaubt ist, sondern golden glänzt, als würde sie täglich jemand drücken? Jaja, kann alles ausgedachter Hokuspokus sein. Andererseits wird es schon einen Grund haben, warum Stefan Hefele seinen Bildband Geisterhäuser genannt hat … #geisterhaus #Alpen #alpes @stefanhefele @geranovabruckmann #stefanhefele #lostplaces Fotos: Stefan Hefele/Bruckmann Verlag

"Catch me if you can" - New Zealand Sometimes it´s a cat and mouse game to catch a good mood. The Summit regularly got hidden in clouds and the sun was about to disappear. A brief moment was enough to capture the special atmosphere. Only a few minutes later I was standing in thick fog. @anna.hefele.fotografie #neuseeland #newzealand #mountains #landscapephotography #landschaftsfotografie #travel #wanderlust #explorer #landscapes #stefanhefele #photography #nikond850 #naturelovers #nikonpotography #d850 #nikon #landscapephotographer #ourplanet #planetearth #nature #adventure #discoverearth #fotografie #traveling #traveltheworld #landscapelover #landscapecaptures #landschaftsfotograf #landschaft

„Grand Wonder“ - Around the World 2018/2019 Already a view month ago but still on tour this was my first photo I took at the Around-The-World-Project. It could have been worse and I felt a good spirit right at the beginning of this utterly huge adventure with my family. It shows me: Sometimes you have to dare more than you are used to. No matter what others think, or how critical you are about it. This is one huge point I learned in 2018 - or at least I got aware of it again. @anna.hefele.fotografie #usa #grandcanyon #wonderfulweekend #aroundtheworld #stefanhefele

"Australian Wonder" - Around the World 2018/19 I´m currently celebrating Christmas with the family in Down Under. But without photography it is hardly possible ;-). So there you go with my first photo from the red (or better green?) continent. Shot at Christmas Eve 2018. Again Merry Christmas und frohe Weihnachten! #australia #newsouthwales #waterfall #2018 #landscapephotography #landschaftsfotografie #travel #wanderlust #explorer #landscapes #stefanhefele #photography #nikond850 #naturelovers #nikonpotography #d850 #nikon #landscapephotographer #ourplanet #planetearth #nature #adventure #discoverearth #fotografie #traveling #traveltheworld #landscapelover #landscapecaptures #landschaftsfotograf #landschaft

"Momentum" - MERRY CHRISTMAS As it is already Christmas Eve in Australia, I would like to take the opportunity to share with you the most exceptionnel moment of my trip around the world (until now). As you know, it´s common at Christmas to give each other presents. With this heavenly moment, which is probably my photo moment 2018, I was presented a few days ago. New Zealand's highest mountain, the Aoraki / Mt. Cook, was crowned by lenticular clouds that looked like tongues of fire. In the glacial lake were still remaining ice floes on the way and the supers-spiny New Zealand Speagras just perfectly fits in this momentum. When I packed the camera and the drama was over, I had to tweak myself. Ouch! Apparently not a dream. I wish you Merry Christmas with many beloved people who give you warm and cordial moments. #newzealand #neuseeland #merrychristmas #stefanhefele #epicnature #aoraki #lenticular #lovephotography

"Smoothy" - New Zealand Gentle Mountains and smooth grassy hills getting touched by soft late evening light. The golden hour in the Southern Alps with its multi-faceted face can be breathtaking. Some lenticular clouds appeared and luckily lasted for two days in the surrounding area. @anna.hefele.fotografie #newzealand #neuseeland #southernalps #landscapephotography #landschaftsfotografie #travel #wanderlust #explorer #landscapes #stefanhefele #photography #nikond850 #naturelovers #landscapephotographer #ourplanet #planetearth #nature #adventure #discoverearth #fotografie #traveling #traveltheworld #landscapelover #landscapecaptures #landschaftsfotograf #landschaft

„Caveland“ - New Zealand Currently we arrived in Australia, celebrating Christmas with the Family. So we are looking forward to a few relaxed days to come. Few days ago I stood here on top of the deepest cave system of New Zealand enjoying the outstanding view. I haven´t expected something like this in the far North of the South Island, but I´m still impressed what I was able to witness here. After more than two month on tour with some very tiring days that Photography and Family entail ;-) I now breath in the warmth of my in-law family here in Down Under. Hope you can calm down as well while the most special time of the year is coming. @anna.hefele.fotografie #newzealand #neuseeland #landscapephotography #landschaftsfotografie #travel #wanderlust #explorer #landscapes #stefanhefele #photography #nikond850 #naturelovers #landscapephotographer #ourplanet #planetearth #nature #adventure #discoverearth #fotografie #traveling #traveltheworld #landscapelover #landscapecaptures #landschaftsfotograf #landschaft

UPDATE 《Around the World》 - "Light Explosion" This was probably one of my most intensive experiences in terms of light. Deep in the wildest part of New Zealand, the Fjordland Nationalpark, I witnessed a sudden change of light as I relaxed in the Camper Van after a heavy thunderstorm passed us. I jumped out of the car in the rain as if stung by the tarantula and searched for a foreground like in a trance. Moments later the light disappeared and it got dark. In the remote south-west of mystic New Zealand. Wish you a great day everyone 🎅🏼 With @anna.hefele.fotografie #newzealand #neuseeland #fjordland #landoftherings #lightexplosion #landscapephotography #landschaftsfotografie #travel #wanderlust #explorer #landscapes #stefanhefele #photography #naturelovers #d850 #nikon #landscapephotographer #ourplanet #planetearth #nature #adventure #discoverearth #fotografie #traveling #traveltheworld #landscapelover #landscapecaptures #landschaftsfotograf #landschaft

„Ancient Green“ - New Zealand´s wild South-West Our Around-the-World-Tour led us to the ancient woods of New Zealands wild South-West. These forests throw me mentally back to times when huge reptiles roamed this continent called Gondwana. Also my kids were super-impressed of what Mother Nature has to show on the other side of our planet Earth. @anna.hefele.fotografie #landscapephotography #newzealand #neuseeland #forest #landschaftsfotografie #travel #wanderlust #explorer #landscapes #stefanhefele #photography #nikond850 #naturelovers #nikon #landscapephotographer #ourplanet #planetearth #nature #adventure #discoverearth #fotografie #traveling #traveltheworld #landscapelover #landscapecaptures #landschaftsfotograf #landschaft
