The area around Vík í Mýrdal in the south is already known for high waves and strong breakers - now there were days of storms, so of course it was even more interesting. In addition, the light conditions were very exciting: one sleet followed the other, in between it ripped open for a few minutes and the sun made the cloud wall of the next shower appear even more threatening. It wasn't easy to get this picture, because the wind kept blowing sand and sleet at me at about 100 km/h...

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.
