Beech forest

One of the last remaining original beech forests in Germany, shot on an early summer morning in Jasmund National Park on the island of Rügen.

The story behind the image

I set out into Jasmund National Park before dawn to shoot the magnificent chalk cliffs that this Baltic Sea coastline is famous for. Yet I was almost more fascinated by the untouched beech forest that stretches all the way to the steep chalk cliffs and is a UNESCO World Natural Heritage site. The straight trees and soft morning light made the scene picturesque. One of my favorite shots dates to 2017. The high quality of this large-format print really brings out the wealth of detail, which you can lose yourself in again and again.
