In twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn`t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines.
Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore. Dream. Discover.


Mark Twain


About

"The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams"
Eleanor Roosevelt




Hello and welcome to my website

These galleries are the result of years of travel.
The beauty and the grandeur of the landscapes I encountered, transformed my life completely. The sense of freedom, peace and solitude in those places we call wilderness, makes me stand in awe of nature.

Photography is my way to express those wonders I encountered during my travels. The photographs show nature through my eyes.

But a camera can never capture what we are able to capture when we observe with all our senses.

Unfortunately we kind of numb our senses in a world where we are constantly exposed to noise and visual irritation.
Thus its even more important these days to have places where we can calm down our mind and learn to use our senses again.
The wilderness gives us this chance to listen to our senses.
I hope my pictures can contribute to create a understanding of how precious these lands are in their preservation, for our own sake.



"I have not tired of the wilderness; rather I enjoy its beauty and the vagrant life I lead, more keenly all the time. I prefer the saddle to the streetcar and star-sprinkled sky to a roof, the obscure and difficult trail,leading into the unknown to any paved highway,
and the deep peace of the wild to the discontent bred by the cities."

Everret Ruess

Guestbook for Wonderful Planet Photography by Peter Heil
Doug & Laura Bennett(non-registered)
Peter,
Laura and I viewed your Abu Dhabi photos today. We both agree we have never seen anything like these before. Stunning! I mentioned this was added to our bucket list of places to visit. We now want to toss other places out of the bucket list to go here!

Peter, been viewing your latest Iceland images. Wow! Love the colors, the scenes, and the compositions! It is morning here in Colorado and as I viewed these, I could feel the cold and had to have another coffee. We enjoyed these images as they took me there . . . and now we are thinking we must go there! Great work. You are bringing more and more art to your work. Doug & Laura

I have been viewing your photos from your trip to the Dolomites. Awesome stuff as I expected! Your photographic vision and artistry is ever increasing. Your artistry is the benchmark I hold for myself. Can't wait for your next trip and the resulting images!!

Hallo Peter,
wir haben uns gestern am Hintersee inmitten der Berchtesgadener Berge getroffen, jetzt habe ich in deiner Galerie gestöbert und konnte mich an deinen wirklich sehenswerten Bildern kaum satt sehen. Gratulation dazu !
Viele Grüße aus Bischofshofen (Land Salzburg), Norbert.
