This tiny island off the northwestern coast of Africa promises eternal spring.

And when you visit Madeira at the right time it’s vegetation will offer an abundance of bright flowers and reward everyone who will gaze not only at the rugged mountains and coastlines but also at the small miracles happening right before their feet.

The gallery shows some of Madeira’s facets I witnessed on my trip in April 2023.

A name that conveys wanderlust and the longing to return to the cradle of mankind.

Since the first time I have visited East Africa and set my eyes on the majestic Mount Kilimanjaro on the horizon I was driven by the urge to return at some time and experience the grandeur of conservation areas like Serengeti and Ngorongoro. These splendid landscapes, teeming with their unique fauna, will not fail to captivate visitors.

I hope to convey my own fascination through my photographs.
