My name is Bernhard Friess and I'm a German photographer who lives in the area between Mannheim/Heidelberg and Karlsruhe in Germany.


I like to go out into the nature and taking landscape photographs as well as close ups of single flowers, blossoms, insects, bugs or similar.


If you like one or the other of my pictures I'm grateful if you add it to your favorites or leave a comment. I appreciate even more if you leave a comment at one of my pictures where you give me your view about what I could have done better with the respective photo!


If you are interested to use one of my copyrighted photos please let me know, I'm sure we find a reasonable solution and it's not always about money :-)


On Aug 13, 2014 I made the following decision:

I released all my photos published in 2014 under a Creative Commons License. Additionally I plan to publish every new photo on this account under a free CC license.


So if you want to use one or the other of the photos, feel free to do so as long as You comply with the license.


Mostly I shoot with old manual lenses with Canon FD mount in front of a Sony Nex 5N camera.
