Do you share the fascination for volcanoes? In this case, Mount Etna on Italy's Sicily island for sure is worth a trip. What I really enjoyed is how diverse this mountain is. The appearance changes constantly, depending on which side and altitude you are. Many areas are covered with lava and ash from previous eruptions, with no or very little vegetation. Then, we had a surprising sight around 2.000m above sea level: a forest of birches. Apparently they enjoy the fertile soil on top of an old lava field of Mount Etna. I took this family picture with a close-up on their trunks with the typical white bark.

Image Licensing (worldwide)

You may order the respective digital files directly from my SHOP on this website by adding the requested image to the shopping cart. My image licenses are governed by the General Terms & Conditions and the Agreement on Image Usage Rights. Please check this link for details before placing an order. On-selling of any of the images is not allowed.

Upon successful payment, you will receive an email with a download link for the selected images.
Please note that photos until March 2010 have been taken on 24x36mm film (mostly Fujichrome 100 ASA slides, and 400 ASA for wildlife). These have been carefully converted into digital files using NIKON Coolscan 5000 ED and Adobe Photoshop Elements. Due to the original analogue source, a certain level of grain might be visible on large prints. In general, for sizes of 90x60cm and up, I would always recommend to choose the “Business High Resolution option”.

If your favourite photo is not visible in the shop, please send me a note including the image number, using the contact form.
Please note: For contractual reasons, sales of my pictures as prints or in the form of digital image files to Mercedes-Benz Group AG and Daimler Truck Holding AG, as well as companies associated with them, are unfortunately not permitted until 30.06.2023. Private purchases by employees of these two groups worldwide, on the other hand, are possible and welcome without restriction.
