The fairytale of the Sheikh Zayed Mosque in Abu Dhabi is shown after sunset. A unique lighting system that reflects the phases of the moon. Soft, flowing clouds in delicate blue-gray are projected onto the entire white marble exterior facade at night. Every day these appear a little different - they appear darker and more blue on the days after the new moon, then brighten with the waxing of the moon, so that the light effect becomes more brilliant and appears brilliant white on the full moon.

Hello, I'm Judith... I would like to call myself an “ambitious amateur photographer”. My main focus is nature and landscape photography, but I also like to make detours to other genres. Everything I know about photography is self-educated. A few books here, some internet research there, inspiration from the works of other photographers and a lot, really a lot of trying things out has brought me to where I am today. My great happiness is my home on beautiful Lake Constance, where I have a lot of photo spots right on my doorstep and the way to the Austrian, Swiss and Italian Alps is not too far.
