This time-lapse video was produced between November 2011 and March 2012 in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Locations were Hopfensee, Rothsee, Staffelsee, Starnberger See, Zugspitze, Gornergrat, just to name a few...

I have spent all my spare time in the last five month to shoot this time-lapse video. I was on location before and after work as well as all the weekends to shoot these footages here... I slept at 2900 meters above see level to capture some of Europe’s most famous mountains at sunrise… And yes, it was pretty cold out there... The „2012 European cold wave“ started on 27 January 2012 and has brought snow and freezing temperatures to nearly everywhere in Europe. Low temperatures hit Germany and other European countries, reaching as low as −35 °C (−31 °F). Perfect weather for landscape photography…

Shooting this video was one of the best experiences in my life. Traveling around to capture nature's beauty in my homeland was amazing. I had the chance to film a really cold winter day, and it left me breathless. Please enjoy this video fullscreen. And thanks for wachting (and sharing).
