Silence & Solitude

Words & Photography: Frithjof Hamacher


Hiking in the mountains is one of the most satisfying experiences for me. Silence and solitude, roughness and beauty and constantly changing weather conditions generate a deep emotional calmness. As I'm getting more and more serious about landscape photography, I’m constantly searching for inspiring sceneries and try to capture them with their specific atmosphere. On my current roadtrip through Southeast Europe I visited the Austrian Alps and went on some hikes through these breathtaking landscapes. I’m still stoked about what I got to see.
