2016 in review: My best photos

2016 was a good year with three international trips. I went to Portugal and Spain in March, to Poland in May, and to Costa Rica in summer. During my international trips and some small trips near my house I made a lot of photographs.
I hope you can help me choosing my best photo of 2016 by telling me in the comment section below. The photos are in chronological order.
I will also tell you something about 2017.

Before I start I want to honor my grandfather who passed away in 2016. He meant a lot to me. His stories about countries far away with animals beyond imagination really inspired me as a kid. For the first time I had to miss his phone call with the sentence: “Will you be careful (because some snakes are very venomous)”. He just wanted to be sure. I miss him.

Support me

Photographing, editing my photos, and writing a report costs a lot of time and energy. I love doing it (it is my passion), but it would be great if you ‘like’ or ‘share’ this report. Also writing a reply feels very rewarding. Also feel free to ask me for information when you are planning your trip.

If you want to stay up to date about my reports and adventures feel free to follow me on different social media. You can find the buttons on top of this page.
