The journey

January 29, 2018

We left Belgium behind at 10am, heading towards our first location.
After a long drive we arrived at the Eibsee. We quickly decided to shoot the moonlit landscape. At the time it was -5°C so we put on some warm clothes and headed out. It's amazing how much light the moon actually provides.

After this little photo mission we went to bed.

06:30 am: The alarms went off and it was time to start the day.
The sun rose at 07:45 so we had a little time to explore the landscape and to prepare for sunrise. The weather was great, not a single cloud in the sky. We shot sunrise and explored the lake for a while, due to the cold weather the lake was frozen and we were able to walk on it. An amazing experience we'll never forget! A little later we left and went to our next location.

Our second location was a lake as well, but a much smaller one. The Geroldsee located east of the Eibsee. We found an excellent parking spot at walking distance from the Geroldsee. Hiked to the lake and started creating! We where all pretty exited about the great sunset we got that day. A beautiful scene developed in front of our eyes. It was the perfect way to end the day.

Our sunrise location was the Geroldsee as well. We have to admit, it's pretty hard to beat waking up like this. After an hour and a half shooting we went back to the car to have breakfast. Some cornflakes, milk and snacks later we left for our last location.
The Neuschwanstein castle is located at the edge of the Alps in Schwangau and it's a must see if you're in the area. Since we never picked a sunset location we walked uphill to find a good vantage point of the castle. After sunset we returned to our car.

The weather forecast promised some snow at 6 in the morning so we headed up to the Marienbrücke to shoot the castle in winter conditions. At least that's what they promised us. The snow started falling at 9am but we had to leave at 8:30. Since the landscape was so beautiful we stopped one last time to enjoy the snowy mountains.
