Photographer,Â Kilian SchÃ¶nberger, loves staying up all night, he often drives many hours and hikes up mountains in the dark on the mountains ofÂ Germany, the Czech Republic, Austria and France to take breathtaking foggy European landscapes at sunrise.
Heights ofÂ 500 to 1,500 meters gets the best results to get clean shots of spectacular rolling mountains and treetops which look beautiful against the morning fog. Let’s face it many of us love to sleep in and rarely get to see such beautiful landscape photography in the mornings! He states:
Since Iâ€™m ascending the mountains during the early morning hours mostly alone itâ€™s always a very special experience. When itâ€™s still dark during the walk everything is calm except some animals of the night like owls. The anticipation is growing when the eastern sky starts to gloom gently. Around 30 minutes before sunrise the best stage of such a morning starts. The intensity of colors reaches the peak and due to the indirect lighting everything seems to be smooth. These are the moments that touch oneâ€™s soul in a very meditative way.
