This year my dream became true as I could accompany a horse herd during their summer stay at the Alps. It is very special observing horses in their natural habitat. This stay outside goes along with different weather conditions such as wind, rain, snow and heat. You may also observe their social behaviour in huge horse herds. They clarify conflicts on their own without human interaction.Small foals even find a place in the herd.They grow up and are getting powerful and intelligent. What inspires me about horses is their beauty, their gentleness, their elegance and their inexhaustible strength.

I am Daniela Schmid, a 37 years old photography enthusiastic. I live in the beautiful Bavarian Forest region around Passau in Bavaria. Photography means everything to me. It helps to maintain my work-life balance with my primary job and enriches my everyday life. Photography is not only a fun hobby for me, but also fills me with positive emotions. Creativity is playing an important role as it allows me to shape my life consciously and self-determined. I am very proud to have recently registered my own photography business called “Daniela.Schmid.Fotografie”. I love mountains and nature as well
