Hey Guys, I know I'm not too good with actually updating here because out of convenience I am more active on my facebook account here: www.facebook.com/NAlexanderOtt… than on DA these days. But I just came back from the baltic island of Rügen where I spend 4 days and then a day later drove through the Alps for a week. Originally I planned to stay longer but due to an unfortunate car accident in the Vallée du la Clarée I had to return earlier. A french local rammed us in a narrow curve with his Land Rover and almost pushed us down the slope. He was pretty much driving way to fast and saw us too late and hit us when we were already standing on the edge of the road. Guess it could've been worse though as if he had seen us another second later he might have pushed us down the slope which was at least 15m in altitude and pretty steep. Now all that is left is to hope that his insurance pays the damage on my friends car as it was pretty obvious that it certainly wasn't our fault. Unfortunate ending for a great trip though.

Other than that my buddy Marc and I visited some great spots and after some weather trouble in the beginning we had some great sights and really enjoyed hiking the great trails of the French Alps, going skinny dippin' in lakes and creeks, and sleeping under the stars. I took some stunning shots I can edit and also got a good cardio workout while doing so, sometimes walking 15km a day with an altitude difference of up to 2km. I'm now pretty much exhausted, having slept only about 4-5 hours a night as well due to the late sunsets, early blue hours, and great night skies that just wouldn't let me sleep. A pretty intense trip and I still feel like I haven't really settled back in home. I'm looking forward to sharing some of the images over the course of the next weeks. 

The baltic stay was pretty slick as well travelling with some friends having a BBQ here and there, sharing a beer or two and the like. But sadly the weather and light weren't much in my favor so I only got few images to edit from the trip. Let's hope that I can return later this year in fall for some grand colors. I was at least able to find some great locations for my next visit! So I shall go there for another (now 5th time). 

On a side note I made it into the finals of the Light Inspired Landscapes Contest in the category Waterscapes with my shot "Opposing Worlds" I would appreciate any and all support since the prices aren't bad at all! Sadly I'm currently in last place. Since I haven't asked for support yet and the voting ends in 3 days. Guess I was gone at the wrong time huh? So I would really be grateful if you voted for me here: lightinspired.deviantart.com/j…

Du wirst nicht glauben, was heute zum Vorschein gekommen is! Dein Bartkamm! :D Allerdings irgendwie kein gutes Zeichen, denn irgendein Druck muss ihn da raus befördert haben ... ggf. ein Indiz auf den Trouble den ich momentan mit meinem Karren hab. ;)

I have to say that you have a beautiful stunning gallery and you're a really talented artist! :love:

Thanks. Although I think of myself more in terms of a craftsman rather than an artist. ;)

Hm, das ist ja nur Semantic. Kunst ist ja im Endeffekt auch "nur" ein Handwerk, das gelernt sein muss. :D

Hi! I’m an editor at Control Literary Magazine. We’ve recently expanded our submissions to art as well as literature and are seeking art submissions. I’ve come to you because I have faved some of your work in the past, so you must be a talented artist. We’re a non-profit organisation so we can’t pay for submissions, but having your work showcased by a magazine can’t be a bad thing!

To find out more you can read my journal article: ohineedtea.deviantart.com/jour…

Or visit the magazine itself: controllitmag.com
