My entries for the Nikon Photo contest 2013.

Background about the pictures "Country Life":

The series of images has been taken on January 5th during an overnight stay at the Marshalls Commonwealth Hotel in Orbost (VIC), Australia. We were travelling around Australia during January 2012 and due to holiday season in January every place to stay was rather crowded. Marshalls Hotel however provided us with a bed - and a nice story and some images to take home with us in our memories.

Port Melbourne

Port of Melbourne, a cloudy but bright day allowed me to shoot this dramatic image.

1000 Reflections

A grey and stormy afternoon at the beach somewhere in Victoria, Australia. The beach is situated along the Great Ocean Road and we stopped by as we were travelling past. It happened that we spent the rest of the afternoon walking in the rain and enjoying the grey afternoon.
