Steffen Egly, a medical engineer from Freilburg, Germany, enjoys photography as a hobby and travelled to the Mythen region of Switzerland to see what he could find.

After hiking up to the summit for the early morning sunrise back in December last year, Steffen’s friend, Dominic, began feeding the birds.

Steffan, 29, shot the pictures as the birds landed on Dominic’s hand and pecked at the seeds against the back drop of the foggy Swiss mountains.

Steffan said: “I love capturing landscapes and also people interacting with the landscape.

“A combination of a spectacular landscape and amazing light is what makes a shot special.

“I often have a clear picture in my mind of how I want to capture a scenery like that.

“Most of the time I quickly know which images I like while looking through them. Some images just feel right.
