@simonreinker photo With this post i want to end
With this post i want to end with 2017, with my pictures from my travels in South America and with the #Photo18 exhibition i was a part of. Contact me, if you want a licenced print on Aluminium or Acryl glas. I decided to give 20% of my income with prints to a local charity organisation from where i took the picture. So i'm actually giving this place something back. (happy for recommodations) . . . #southamerica #bolivia #chile #boliviatravel #discoversouthamerica #atacama #desert #landscape #salardeuyuni #uyuni #sony  #a7sii #nature #naturegeography #gurushots

@simonreinker photo Over this season, many people
Over this season, many people gather where they grew up. A strong feeling of home is more than a place. It's a gathering of relationships, experiences and environmental circumstances . For me, growing up next to that lake made a strong bondage. It's like an anchor that is always the same, but appears totaly new to who is taking a closer look, even on rainy days. Wish you a fulfilled christmas where ever you are! . . . #home #pfäffikon #zurich_switzerland #visitzurich #lake #light #switzerland #switzerland_vacations #ig_switzerland #zurich #switzerlandpictures #panorama

Machu Picchu was built in the 15th century by the Incas. After the spanish arrived after 1570, the Incas were afraid that they will find it by tracking their trails. So the Incas decided to rather abandon their temple, than to leave it to the Imperialists. For more than 300 years Machu Picchu was officially abandonend until it was redecovered in 1911 by an american expedition. . . . . #machupicchu #inca #temple #peru #experienceperu #igersperu #discoversouthamerica #southamerica #landscape #sony  #a7sii #nature #naturegeography #gurushots

I know you've seen many pictures of Machu Picchu. 🙈 But i hope, i can show you a new perspective when it comes to lighting and framing. My goal on that day was to be one of the first to enter this famous inca temple. So i waited 3 hours in front of the gate and finally started - with 2500 people behind me - to run up those f***** steep stairs. I arrived as 3th. My motivation was not to achieve a gold medal or the honour of some lazy asses that took the bus up. My motivation was to capture some of this epic morning fog during that season, without having any people around. To be honest, i'm still little proud of my bronze medal (that i did't receive!) 😉 . . . #machupicchu #inca #temple #peru #experienceperu #igersperu #discoversouthamerica #southamerica #landscape #sony  #a7sii #nature #naturegeography #gurushots @igersperu @peru

So this is the famous peruan side of the lake #titicaca. What you see here are the floating islands. I like these pictures more than the experience to go there. It was exciting to see how people bild floating Islands and manage to live on them. But it was just insane, how everything was set up for tourists. They build a marketplace to sell souvenirs and the whole 2h were a show where we visited an extra example of such an island to present their way of life. Maybe i have negative feelings about it, because the day before i spent on a lonely island in bolivia. 😉 #puno #laketiticaca #peru #experienceperu #igersperu #discoversouthamerica #southamerica #landscape #sony  #a7sii #nature #naturegeography #gurushots

The unique landscape of the "Sun Island" on the lake Titicaca. I took this picture on a day hike around that island. Being almost alone, I felt my potential to one day become a King there. 😉 I would probably get bored after 1 week. So i keep stuck with photography for now. 😁 . . . #laketiticaca #hills #island #isladelsol #boliviatravel #bolivia #discoversouthamerica #southamerica #landscape #sony  #a7sii #nature #naturegeography #gurushots

I spent 24 hours on the beautiful island "Isla del sol" on the lake Titicaca. During my hikes i met only very few people. I really hope tourism is not getting here too much, cause it was so relaxing to have such a scenery by myself. 😊 . . . #lake #laketiticaca #boliviatravel #bolivia #discoversouthamerica #southamerica #naturegeography #nature #landscape #sea #isladelsol #llama #island

Moving further to the highest lake in the world. Many people visit only the peruan side. Which is a big mistake in my opinion (i mean, if you visit family or you have a date there: do it! But if you're into landscapes, skip it). In the upcoming posts you will see why 😉 . . . #lake #laketiticaca #boliviatravel #bolivia #discoversouthamerica #southamerica #naturegeography #nature #landscape #sea

@simonreinker photo Moving further with my posts.
Moving further with my posts. Skipping the capital Sucre cause i was only partying there. Didn't get my camera out of the locker once 😅 So this road called "Death Road" is a 2h drive from La Paz. It used to be the most dangerous road in the world until the 90ies. Well it's still very dangerous. The cliffs are up to 800 meter high. I 'enjoyed' this road by bysicle like most people do. Yes it was scary. Espacially the rain and fog made it very scary. I have 3 recommodation if you wanna do it: 1. Don't t drink the night before (not like me) cause altitude is up to 4700m. Above sea level. 2. Dont save money on renting a bike (not like me) 3. Don't fall down. (surprisingly i did't) . . . #boliviatravel #boliviatravel #southamerica #deathroad #lapaz #jungle #road #nature #landscape #travel

El Isla Incahuasi ("house of the Incas") is an island covered by cactus. Instead of the ocean it is surrounded by the salt flats of Bolivia. . . . #panorama #salardeuyuni #desert #cactus #island #landscape #saltflats #bolivia #boliviatravel #ig_naturelovers #southamerica #toyota #gurushots #travel

Our car during the trip. We were listening to Kendrick Lamar and felt like the coolest dudes crusin over the sky. The mix of urban rap, coca leaves, the altitude (4000m) and the epic scenery totally made something weird with us. Travelling is an expensive drug though! 😉 . . . #salardeuyuni #desert #reflection #landscape #car #bolivia #boliviatravel #ig_naturelovers #southamerica #toyota #gurushots #travel

@simonreinker photo My last pics from my trip
My last pics from my trip through #atacama and #salardeuyuni The red lagoon in the north of Chile (altitude: 3700m) carries it's color due to red seaweed. I arrived there around 3pm and the water was more of an orange. Two hours later it turned into a dark red. Local habitants say that you would disappear miricously when drinking from it. I didn't feel like trying it. 😅 We are so blessed with our weird but beautiful planet! 🙃 . . . . . #red #lagoon #lake #southamerica #flamingo #southamerica #chile #instachile #sony #a7sii

#4 of my series "30 minutes Salar de Uyuni" This picture has a very silencing charisma to me. It feels like a painting.

#reflection in #salardeuyuni #3 I was traveling with a group of french people. So I never knew, wether I had my headache because of trying to catch up in french or because of the high altitude. 😉😅 (up to 5200m.

30 Minutes #salardeuyuni #2 Perfect #reflection on the #saltflats of #uyuni. This picture was taken just few minutes before #sunrise on an altitude of 4000 m.a.s. It did't feel like walking on #water. More likely, it felt like walking over the #sky. . . . #experiencebolivia #sure_photos #bolivia #discoversouthamerica #southamerica #sony  #a7sii #naturegeography #landscape #gurushots @experiencebolivia

5.00 o'clock in the morning. A Guide, four travellers and me are driving towards the huge flat area of the #salardeuyuni. First, we were a little dissapointed, because it rained a little the evening before. But when the sun rised we all experienced a magical moment that would last for a lifetime! The whole scenery was double and I didn't even drink before! 😁 Just incredible!

@simonreinker photo I arrived at that
I arrived at that #traingraveyard at 12am. Since i wanted to capture it during the night, i had to wait 10h in the only little town 30 min drive away, called Uyuni. But no tourguide was willing to drive me there during the night. So i thought, i will be ok by walking there. But when i told the receptionist about my plan, she warned me, told me that i'm crazy and probably will get lost and die. So we actually found the only taxidriver in town who was willing to drive me with a "not at all" offroad car. He even joined me to take those pictures for 3 hours and became my camera asisstent for the night. 😆 In order to keep up our conversation, i had to come up with every single spanish word that i learned. For safety reasons i brought 2 stands with me. One for the camera and one to protect us from agressive dogs. 😅 No worries, not even a dog died that night. . . ... #milkyway #stars #nightsky #train #experiencebolivia #milkywaypics #longexpoelite #longexpisure_photos #boliviatravel #bolivia #discoversouthamerica #southamerica #desert @milkywaychasers @longexposure_features @abandonedearth @itsabandobed
