The botanical Gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle

The Gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle is a botanical garden located in the town of Merano (Meran) in northern Italy. It is nestled into a twelve-hectare amphitheatre with an altitude differential of 100 meters. The garden consists of different landscapes containing plants from all over the world. It has a lot of opportunities to take photos of flowers, plants and pieces of art.

Macro photos of insects

Over the past years I made several macro images of insects I encountered in our garden or during our holidays. Close-ups of insects are always amazing as we get a different view of them as usually.

Timmelsjoch High Alpine Road

Timmelsjoch High Alpine Road

During our holidays in the past years in Austria we crossed several times the border to visit Italy. Our favorite route is taking the Timmelsjoch High Alpine Road at the end of the Ötztal in Austria to South Tirol in Italy. When the weather is right it is possible to take some beautiful photos from the surrounding mountains and valleys, like the Seebertal at the Italian side.
